May 2010 Brides!
Posted 26 March 2010 - 01:50 PM
I keep saying "oh next weekend or over the week" and it's not really the case anymore. I don't have a free weekend left. Next weekend is Easter, then bachelorette/bachelor parties, then a charity outing and then the last weekend before we leave monday the 26th, if I am packing that weekend....so help me God!

I opted out of a traditional bachelorette party so luckily I don't have that stress. Actually my mini-bach party was when I was home in Chicago in January for a BD shoot with just the bridesmaids & then out to dinner & drinks.
Amy, how great! Vegas!! I've never been, but having 10 people go with you sounds like sooo much fun!
I'm in the same mind-set (ordering stuff & then returning what I don't like). So far I've ordered a David's Bridal short bridesmaid dress in ivory. Didn't love it so it went back. Then I bought a dress at White House Black Market, brought it home but don't love it so it's going back too. I really love this BCBG dress from last year (ivory taffeta w/ straps and a ruffled hem) but it's only made in black now. I emailed Light in the Box to see if they can make it for me. We'll see.
What kind of dress are you looking for?
So here's what I've been working on.
our pre-wedding packages. We had to get two different styles of luggage tags b/c I couldn't find more of the ones from Michaels (the larger ones). Everyone in our family will get the larger ones and the rest of the guests are getting the ones with the dots. We had to get some in pink & orange too.
We only have 3 kids coming (FI's niece & nephews) so we got them their own special luggage tags
These are the table #'s & place cards. I ordered Mexican Talavera tiles, painted the backs with terracotta colored paint & then will write names/table # on the backs. Each couple will get a different tile.

What are you ladies doing about any readers gifts...if you are having readers.
We are doing two poems and then the sand ceremony. So 3 gifts in total....thoughts?

Luckily/Unluckily I live a block away from 2 huge malls and a Targe which are all across the street from each other so I am gonna run over there today and hope I score.
We are about 3.5 hours driving / 45 minute flight from Vegas so it was a no brainer to get married there, Elvis here we come

Shannon, that's a really good question! We have 2 readings (one of my bro's & one of FI's sisters). Then the other day FI said we really need to incorporate his other sister somehow so maybe we'll do a sand ceremony & have her read the poem. Not sure what to give them though. Maybe we can buy them each a piece of Mexican pottery or something local when we get down there.
Amy, are you guys really doing an Elvis wedding?! Love the idea! Even if you don't, Vegas will be awesome!
And I'm jealous of your proximity to shopping! I have nothing around me & it takes forever to take the subway to get anywhere so there's no running out for a quick trip. I can't even find a decent dollar store. They're all pretty ghetto.

Anyone involving people as part of the wedding without having them do the sand ceremony or a reading? We already have 2 readings & I'm trying to think of some other way to involve FI's sister. He doesn't love the sand ceremony idea, but he said he'll do it if we can't think of something else. why are boys difficult?
