no, no, i still have almost 6 weeks! and i need every last day. still need to plan the ceremony (not at all started yet), figure out who's doing the legal part before we leave (likely my mom, who's a licensed pastor), plan the AHR - oh, and we want to build a deck before the AHR since we're having it in our backyard and don't have a deck yet. just a few small things! :) honestly, though? i'm having a ton of fun with it!

I need to find a cheap veil fast and so far have had zero luck!
Yeah I am! My alterations are just taking it in though, it's just too big, nothing major at all. They still charged me a pretty penny for it!
Wow, I can't wait to see it!!

I bought my veil on Etsy... it's not typical it's a tulle cage veil but someone could make whatever you need and probably rush it to you! It's definitely hard not trying it on first.

yikes! Next month!! At least it's the very end of the month for me :) There's a lot of little details to work on and we need to work out the ceremony & music for reception. Also still need to find something for FI's sis to do. Also need to get a bag together by 4/15 to give FI's brother to take with him (they're coming to visit).

Last night I cut out our bag tags & tied them on the OOT bags.

 

Bought my legal day dress Friday though!! (not wearing a belt)

Wow...I miss a few days and it's a lot to catch up on ladies.

 

To all new...WELCOME!!!!

 

Karen, love the shoes idea and you are too creative...LOVE IT! and the first aid kit is great!

And OMG the dress is great!!!! so exciting.

 

Amy, awesome about Vegas you must be so excited. I want to be a guest to get the pre-bag and OOT bag. =) Very generous of you!!!

 

We finally took out the summer clothes and started trying things on yesterday. Went to Michael's over the weekend and bought all the items to make the program fans and bag tags, and favor tags. We didn't find favors mesh bags big enough. One was too small and of course the other too big...but we'll keep looking.

 

We started our "Do Not Play List" for the DJ and listing out the Dinner/Dance/Special Songs (Father/Daughter, Mother/Son, Cake cutting) and I'll type that up =)

 

Also finished the seating chart and thank god that was EASY....no hassle there really.

 

I have 12 and 1/2 work days left and 3 weeks till we leave. Bachelorette Party this weekend!!!! Woo Hoo!!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
