Hope everything goes great for your wedding! Not long now!! Are you all organised and ready to go? xxxx
uhhg. I wish I could say yes, but i have always been a very last minute person. So why would that change now?!!! I had less than six months to plan everything from time of engagement to the wedding day. I think i'm doing pretty damn good. lol I mean i have the major things done. But i am still working on table assignments, escort cards, flowergirl baskets, the CD favors and centerpieces. All DIY.
I do think it is important to have something at home for the family and friends that can't make DW. How much each bride chooses to spend or how formal will always vary greatly. I really wanted the formal pics as well. I really want to be able to remember both days forever. It truly is like having two weddings. The way i look at it.....I only plan on getting married once. So i want to savor it!!! I do know that i have had to put alot more time, effort, energy and money into the AHR. The package at the resort is so easy. Very little rushing around to plan.
If you have questions or anything...feel free!!!!
