My FI's aunt invited her friend (or the friend invited herself, still not clear) without telling us. The woman already bought her ticket and everything. Now I find out that two more people are coming and have bought tickets although there was no mention of them coming before (not even we might come) and they never responded to the RSVP. Sheesh! Managing the guest list has by far been the most stressful aspect of planning this wedding. Sorry. Just need to vent.
    I think all of us have experienced something like this to a degree. I had a lot of people fall off at the last second (bridesmaidS and groomsmen) and one come that I didn't want to come... literally just booked and I am making my MOH's husband be his babysitter... how sad... he is a drinker if you know what I mean.

      Meli, that really sucks! I think we all can relate to the rudeness. What is up with people?! I agree - that's definitely the most stressful part!

      1 week til MX! Yay Shannon!!

      Who else do we have on the 1st?

        Wow - 3 hours of hair Amy! How great you got to try out 3 styles! Did you decide on one or will you just show the pics to the stylist & see what they come up with? Or is your friend doing your actual wedding-day hair?

        I'm really thinking I should do a hair trial now.

          Just ordered my BD book! So excited! I went with the 8x8 leather cover with window cut-out from Shutterfly. It'll be here Monday.

            We did decide on one! I brought her that inspiration board of photos to see what she felt like doing. The first looked good and I liked it but the 3rd is what really got me so it was nice to compare. My hair stylist is actually my friend and I invited her to my wedding and she accepted and offered to do my hair.

            Do you know what you want to be done to your hair? I would suggest a trial just to make sure once it's done it's what you want.

            Do you know

                I know this may be strange but I'm going back and forth on writing a welcome letter. Would any of you mind showing me yours so I can get an idea of what one looks like?

                    Karen,

                    Did you upload the pics from Jen from the Zip file? Is that how you are doing the book, or is it a book that you will insert the pics in? I have a 5x7 album but didn't realize and ordered the 4X6s prints. So I just made a border on the picture. It was a self-adhesive page, so the pages are thick - 10 pages, 20 pictures. He better like it ;-) lol

                      Thanks Shannon, looks great!!!

                      Maybe this is where I'm trying to figure out if I need one. I made a brochure to mail to guests the week before we all leave with literally all this information sans the events. We're sticking the wedding day timeline info in their OOT bag because I honestly don't think anyone will remember unless it's in their face.

                      So I think I actually don't need a letter, I think a timeline should do just fine. I'm meeting everyone in the lobby with their OOT bags anyways.
