    Ladies- Thank you so much for all your support and ideas. I definately could not have done any of this without this forum. You all rock!
    Pull up a chair this is long....

    Oh yeah If I forget to thank someone specific - I'm sorry but I am exhausted, I just finished packing and a car is coming in 5 1/2 hours. woohoo!

    *Tammy thanks for starting this forum it's so helpful and there are some real gems on here. I am so greatful.

    Here we go

    We’re engaged! This shot is shortly after T proposed. Here’s how he did it

    My Ring- This is not on my hand but all the ones that were on my hand looked awful so this is on the jewelry designer’s hand. She had better lighting I guess. It’s a Montana Sapphire surrounded by 2 diamonds on a platinum band. This is the photo she sent him before he decided on it. He knew that I wanted an alternative ring and it was important for me to have conflict free diamonds so this was perfect. I adore it.

      Save the date magnet(screenshot) We used VistaPrint for magnets and uploaded a cute pic we had of our feet in a heart from our Bahamas trip where he proposed. We designed the rest on the site.

      DIY Invite - This was a project! T and I laughed a lot and almost strangled each other during the process but in the end we were thrilled with how they came out and I wouldn’t have it any other way. (He says he would just pay but…) I am so glad that we saved a few $$ and once again realized what a great team we are together. A big thank you to all who helped along the way especially Andi!

      The tags went out with out Month before letter. No Brochure for me. I got too overwhelmed trying to design that thing. Kudos to all who do!

          My dress- Maggie Sottero “Monterey”. Bought at Lillette’s Bridal on Long Island. They were awesome when I bought the dress but I hated that it took so long to arrive. It was really crazy. I ordered it in August and i didn't have a first fitting till April. This is me at the fitting. Horrible pic- you can't see the back which is so pretty. corsette. The seamstress was working my last nerve at this point.

              Big shout out to KLC77- Thank you!

              FI's gift- BD book. I used a silver paint pen on the black pages and wrote a poem about us and also inserted love quotations throughout. He loves poetry and it is something that is big with us. I also found this sexy poem by Marge Piercy that i will share with you. I used this as well.

              Implications of One Plus One -by Marge Piercy

              Sometimes we collide, tectonic plates merging,
              continents shoving, crumpling down into the molten
              veins of fire deep in the earth and raising
              tons of rock into jagged crests of Sierra.

              Sometimes your hands drift on me, milkweed's
              airy silk, wingtip's feathery caresses,
              our lips grazing, a drift of desires gathering
              like fog over warm water, thickening to rain.

              Sometimes we go to it heartily, digging,
              burrowing, grunting, tossing up covers
              like loose earth, nosing into the other's
              flesh with hot nozzles and wallowing there.


              Sometimes we are kids making out, silly
              in the quilt, tickling the xylophone spine,
              blowing wet jokes, loud as a whole
              slumber party bouncing till the bed breaks.

              I go round and round you sometimes, scouting,
              blundering, seeking a way in, the high boxwood
              maze I penetrate running lungs bursting
              toward the fountain of green fire at the heart.

              Sometimes you open wide as cathedral doors
              and yank me inside. Sometimes you slither
              into me like a snake into its burrow.
              Sometimes you march in with a brass band.

              Ten years of fitting our bodies together
              and still they sing wild songs in new keys.
              It is more and less than love: timing,
              chemistry, magic and will and luck.

              One plus one equal one, unknowable except
              in the moment, not convertible into words,
              not explicable or philosophically interesting.
              But it is. And it is. And it is. Amen.

              I stumbled upon this poem and had to include it.

              I'm so sleepy. I gotta go!

              p.s I resized these images and I am not sure why they are still coming out so large. ugh. I will try again. sorry about that!

                everything looks amazing! i love the poem in your BD book, and really love that you made a hat for your dad (especially since he wears bucket hats -- he will love it!).

                and OMG, what luck that the table number you chose to show was 4 ... as soon as i saw the pic, i realized it: i spelled cuatro w/a "Q" on mine, which means it's wrong on all of table 4's escort cards as well ... aaaahhh! and i should know better, as i took a few years of spanish in high school. wtf? have to blame that one on wedding-brain too! thanks so much for posting ... now i don't have to have a 6 year old call me on it at the wedding, lol!

                your wedding will be amazing i'm sure. everything looks wonderful!
