Tracy I'm definitely going to be looking at your song list later on! I wasn't online pretty much at all yesterday but I wasn't at work either... so two things to catch up on and of course work has to take priority. I was an idiot and TOTALLY forgot about a meeting that I had booked for yesterday afternoon so I've got to cover my ass this morning! Oooops!
And yay for you girls getting a few people booked and more checked off your list with the videographer! Those are definitely noteworthy items! And even though I've already got a number of guests booked, I did have a few mention to me the other day that waiting until the new year to book is probably easier on a lot of people right now because the whole "looking forward" mentality is really difficult for a lot of people right now. I know we've said the same thing here before, but I think it was just a bit more reassuring hearing it from someone else and I hope you all have friends in the same boat that will just start booking up quickly after the holidays!!
Kimmy - there will always be different opinions from yours but the good thing is that you can pick and choose what changes you actually want to make from them! Make your invites the way you want to... and if someone is offended then just say "I took everyone's opinion into consideration and incorporated those suggestions where they seemed to work best with mine". And if that secretly means you didn't listen to a single suggestion because none fit with your ideas then so be it! Haha! People will always have their own opinion but in the end they will be happy with whatever invitation that you've chosen just because it is official and they have details in hand. I am not having an AHR so I can't help with whether to mention it directly on the invite really. Maybe you could include an additional note card with the details on it? That way it might be treated more as its own separate event/date from the actual wedding vacation itself
