Vistaprint is a good idea too!! Very inexpensive :)
I'm also using Beck's welcome book template! I am going to print them out myself on cardstock and then put it in the photo album I'm giving to my guests that way I don't have to worry about binding them and the welcome book ends up being a gift they will use to put their pictures in.

Wow! You guys certainly got busy. I just found out that the company I ordered my flower girl dresses from are unable to obtain them from the designer sad.gif So now I'm back to shopping around for flower girl dresses...

I went away for 2 weeks and the only wedding related business I did was order my FI's wedding shirt and his brothers' (groomsmen) shirts. I made a huge list on my way home (yesterday) and now I'm completely overwhelmed. To top if off I had my 2nd to last fitting this morning and realized my veil is damaged! Thankfully, the store is replacing it with a new one. Only a few more weeks to go! I hope everyone else is doing better than me...

ONLY ONE MONTH TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm doing pretty good. Last night I couldn't sleep so I got up and worked (for work and wedding) until 5am. I think I was a little nervous or something. It's approaching fast. I'm so afraid I won't get it all done. My Mom helps me a lot, but I need a little friend help. Then I feel selfish that I feel that way. Does anyone else ever feel that?

Yeah!! Only one month to go. I actually worked on making samples for my very first DIY projects...worked on labels for my OOT bags from a template I found here. I also stole the idea of a starfish placecard holder from this site...purchased starfish last week...we made a sample...really cute. Now we just have to get car-stock for the placecard.


I still have to do a pre-Travel Brochure which should have been sent out by now, a Program and a menu....how is everyone doing?
