    YES I find some people are completely thoughtless when it comes to weddings in general. My best friend got married a couple years ago and she had people RSVP to her in a grocery store when they randomly ran into her. I mean really.... we freakin stamped all of the RSVP cards ourselves. How hard is it to throw it in the mail?!? Also, with a DW I think people just think its all laidback and they can book their own trips whenever. They don't realize that there is alot of planning still to do for the bride. I certainly had NO IDEA until I started planning.

        Hehe yes it is!! My ticker just switched to counting down in days so it's pretty cool! We leave April 12 so I'm kinda freaking out at the lack of weekend time (and time in general) that I have to get things finished!

          Woo!! That's so exciting Meghan!!! :)

          Well, I am pretty darn happy! Yesterday was the final payment date for our trip, and we ended up with 56 people (including us). I was nervous that some would drop out when it came to final payment, but they all surprised us! Lets just hope all the payments go through now... haha.

              I did DIY Boarding pass invites but got help from Shelyn Olson @ Expression Invites (she is in lake Bonivista) She does any kind of invite style you like and she was cheap! (not in her work haha...the money)

                  There is an 'etsy' thread on the forum one of the ladies there bought some. So I say check out etsy.com - good luck.

                    Echo- do you have the hankies already? I live out in Cochrane and know of a couple places here. One place I've used a ton (I organize Breast Cancer events and she does all the work on the hats and shirts we raffle off) and she is really great! Her company is called Fine Lines Embroidery. I can get the number for you if you are interested. She works out of her house and it's a bit out of town(north on hwy 22) Otherwise, I got a robe embroidered at a local place in town last christmas and was also very happy with their work. Can't remember the name but I can easily find it out if you want. Kind of a pain all the way out here but I'll get the phone numbers of both if you want to make the trip.....

                      Hey I do have the hankies already - or at least I will have them this weekend when my alterations lady is done with them. I'm using the shawl from my dress (something I would NEVER use for myself!) to make five hankies for our moms and grandma's - it was totally an idea that I stole from someone on here

                      So yes, if you could send me the names/addresses/numbers - whatever! - for them I would definitely appreciate it! It only takes me about 8 minutes to make it to the west side of Calgary on the ring road so cochrane really isn't a heck of a lot further from there :) Thank you!!
