      Ok...anyone else in panic mode????

      I leave in four days - NO dres and NO rings!!!!! had some major hiccups this past week and after all the planning and making sure all the details are right - the major things get stuck!! grr!!!

      I should have everything before we go, but it is so stressfull to have those items left on the to-do list!!!

      Not to mention im still waiting on shipments of the guestbook, lasso, coins and chair bows!

      Best of luck to all you fellow august brides here's hoping that everything falls right into place!

          I hope you get everything but I know the feeling I still have a lot of little things to do and my dress is not fitting that good so trying to do some extra things to get into it. But it will all work out in the end.

                holy smokes that's soon! Where are you getting married? (The new layout got rid of all the good details for brides!) What kind of stuff did you do for your guests? If you're a teacher I bet you're a bit crafty.  I go back to school after our wedding to be a teacher, and the craft bug hit me hard with this wedding, haha.

                 

                So exciting!!!

                    I know, I don't know that i like this new layout. I kind of miss the old one! Im getting married in Key West. We leae saturday and get married on Monday...yea! For my guests I made Gift bages (OOT bags basically). I found cheap canvas bags online and used printable iron-on transfer paper to create a cute design for the bags. I filled them with snacks (I got tons of individually wrapped stuff at Sam's), mini aloe lotions (Walgreens), kleenex, chapstick, and handheld battery operated fans. I also created a welcome book. This is what took the most time. I stole the idea from another forum on here. I used mini scrapbooks from Hobby Lobby. I printed off a welcome letter, itinirary, contact list, maps of Key West, photoshare info, and info about places to eat, shop and play around Key West. I just glued the paper into the books and was done. It turned out really cute.

                     

                    About a month ago I sent out welcome packets to everyone as well. This just included a letter from my FI and I along with Key West info and a tentative inirary. With that I also sent luggage tags that I made. I had pictures from my planning visit to key west that I printed off in wallet sizes. I glues the picture to brown cardstock paper and on the other side put the name of the guest. Then I laminated them and punched a hole at the top for the luggage tag cord. Everyone seems to really like them. I was impressed with how thye turned out.

                     

                    Good luck with the teaching job! What age level? I teach elementary so the creative thing comes in really handy.
