this is EXACTLY what we had originally planned to do!! unfortunately, the lady who is making my makeup bags for my BMs and my table runners is super busy so i didn't press her any more on it. then my mom randomly finds her and it was perfect!
just an fyi for everyone too on the topic of dresses after the wedding.. i've seen some really pretty blankets made out of people's wedding dresses after the fact. i kind of want to do with some fabric from FI's shirt, a BM dress, table runners and chair ties too. does that sound weird?

I think your flowers are going to be beautiful!!
mmmm i LOVE cheesecake factory and that's a perfect location! is lunch okay? i'm always up for a martini at noon! thanks for the offer on the dress fitting too.. i may have to think about that! right now it's just me and my mom since one BM lives out of town and the other two are working.

He just can't wait to get to Mexico and drank some tequila and chill out with all our friends and fam!! I can't wait either...and by the amount of snow we have on the ground I wish it was a little sooner than 6 months...but then I think of what I look like in a bathing suit and think...no, I can wait the 6 months!! lol But good news for Calgary - Saturday is supposed to be a high of 12 degrees Celsius!!! I think we may hit the corn maze and pick a pumpkin!!
Oh and big announcement!!!! THIS IS MY #151 POST!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!! hahahhaha
my FI does the SAME thing.. why don't they understand?! when we're all crazies right before, we can blame them for making us wait for things!
and CONGRATS!!! that 151 milestone is huge! yayyy for downloading things now!

will we look stupid going by ourselves?
i don't think you'll look stupid at all!! and i'm all about the "night apart" tradition.. stick with it if it's what you really want to do. no reason it should be any different w/ or w/out guests.
as for your photog, if you want pictures of getting ready, then i say do it. the "in the mirror" makeup shots and the guy tying his tie are always really sweet and don't require anyone else. if you want more time on the strip though.. you have that option as well!
