    oh my gosh i went through all of my stuff the other night getting rid of extra stuff. I have alot going w/ me! Fortunately all of us booked our flights far enough in advance that we are still allowed 2 free checked bags. Joes parents are only taking carry ons so we are just distributing amongst our family. I dont think we'll have much issue since we have 4 bags we can give to joes parents. I also ordered flowers (from fresh real natural touch artificial silk wedding bouquet flowers). Most of my other stuff is going to be packed in bags I can fold down to bring home easier, except for our flowers, I'm going to pack them in a hard shell bag.

    Ok Oh my gosh please tell me someone is bringing as much crap as me!

              I'm taking down sand kit, guestbook, place cards and welcome cards. My favors are being done by my WC and Ana G. is sending my menus directly to my hotel so I don't have to hassle too much.

                  Oh, wow. Now I'm scared. Looking at your list makes me realize I also have a crapload of stuff. Geez, I need to quit buying. I just keep seeing all these wonderful ideas and keep adding on stuff.
                  This really did start out being simple and relaxed. Wait until DH actually sees it all gathered in one place. Yikes! Not sure how I am getting it all there?

                      Think im stupid, just joined the site, what does OOT stand for? I can guess what they are, just dont know the abbreviation. sorry.

                      One thing I'm planning on taking are Wish Lanterns. Not sure if anyone has posted about them on here.

                      Basically they are paper lanterns. You guests whisper or write a wish in them, then you set alight the little burner in the middle and they float away like little hot air balloons of light. Look really pretty at night. Going to take about 40(one for each guest), so should look good.
