    Finely - That's exciting! I got all my OOT bags and whatnot and everything else I just need to get all the dollarstore items for them.

    I have been designing stuff on Publisher lately which is so fun and easy. Made my menu's and programs and just had them printed at Kinko's yesterday so I need to cut and ribbon them now. Working on finishing my DIY hair flowers for the bridesmaids and my dress and shoes should come in this week!

    Lady Di pointed out to me too that my photog blogged a BD pic of me which was more shocking than anything but flattering none the less, you can't really see my face or tell it's me but it's one of the racier pix.

    FI is out of town all week on business so I plan on getting a lot done while he's gone :)

    How's everyone else getting along?

      you are on a roll!! I haven't done anything I did start ordering things such as raffia fans...it sucks because i want to order an exact number instead of an estimate. i should start working on the program/menu but we haven't picked our menu selections. Lol. next month, i'll get my butt on it!

        Hey girls, hope everyone's doing well!

        We just got our pens, photoshare cards & little welcome cards/timelines for inside the OOT bags from Vistaprint. They turned out really cute (I'll try to post a pic later).
        I'm in the process of making a "shoes optional" sign. I bought some lt blue stiff felt, around 11" x 18 ", in the kids craft section at Michaels & white fabric paint so I just painted the words as a test run & I think it'll be OK, but I have to do the final version. Also got some painted wooden flip flops to glue onto the sign.

        We ran into a bit of a problem with our groomsmen shirts yesterday though. So, our colors are aqua, green (kind of clover colored) & yellow. The groomsmen are wearing guayabera shirts & I came up w/ the bright idea of having the embroidery down the front match the girls' dresses (so one light blue, one green & one yellow). Only problem is the shirts came in & apparently the yellow is REALLY light (had them delivered to Chicago where 2 of the groomsmen are so I haven't actually seen them). But according to my sis-in-law, it's kinda hard to tell it apart from the ivory shirt. I also can't tell if I really like the green. Now I'm not sure what to do. She sent me a pic, but it's hard to tell w/ lighting & everything how it'll really look & I'm guessing it won't show up in pictures at all. I think we may end up re-ordering the yellow with more of a gold or orangey yellow thread but it's such a pain in the butt. It took over 2 months to get the stupid shirts in the first place. Very frustrated about this, especially since I can't see the shirts! boooo

            I'm really trying to be calm about this... how did things go from (last year) people's reaction being "Oh! You're getting married how exciting, oh next year that will be so much fun!" to... "OMG, your wedding is in 2 months! You must be freaking out!" YEAH, shhhh don't remind me please! LOL

                im sad....... my 82 yr old grand mother was suppose to come to our wedding and this week, 2 months before the wedding, she fell and broke her hip

                so she will no longer be able to attend.....i am very close with her and this has upset me so bad, I am having trouble planning....

                she one was of the reasons why we decided to have our wedding this year so that she could share our special moment with us....

                  Oh no!! I know there's nothing you can do to have her be there but is there anyway you can webcam it or have it video'd just for her?

                      I completely know what you mean. We will be leaving the 2nd weekend in May, so I really only have March & April.... GULP. I feel like I'm so far behind.
