    It’s now my turn to post my planning thread! I have been on BDW since last August and I have looked forward to seeing all the new planning threads as they’re posted. I think I have borrowed, was inspired or stolen ideas from each one! Thanks to everyone before me for all of the great ideas and templates!!!!
    I was going to put this together 2 weeks ago before we left on 4/29 to the Riviera Maya, but all the craziness broke out about the pig poison in Mexico and I got side-tracked….anyway, we got back Thursday night and had the time of our lives (I will be posting my review and pics soon!), so I thought I would get this posted now! I will also post any templates I have in case they can help another bride!!!
    Here we go……

    Rich & I on our first date

    The evening Rich proposed. He took me to Bob’s Steak & Chops House in a limo. After a great dinner, he got down on bended knee and asked me the best question ever!

                But at our rehearsal dinner, my dad gave me this bracelet and I wore it instead. He had it made and had a cross that was his mother’s added to it. Our wedding date would’ve been her 95th birthday if she was still living. It means so much to me to have this special piece!

                    Guest Book Alternative: Guest Book Quilt……instead of the traditional guest book, my mom wanted all the guests to write special messages to us of pieces of fabric that she is going to use to make us a quilt. I put an envelope with the instructions (printed at Vista Print), pen, supplies, etc in each OOT bag and then the guests brought the finished pieces of fabric to the reception, where my mom collected them. I can’t wait to see the finished product!!
