All I've done is
- received my dress (doesn't fit, long story, thank GOD for alterations!)
- bought centerpieces
- Finished luggage tags
- Picked groomsmens outfits (our little nephews)
Argh. Ok, but i a week in a half, I'm headed to Denver for my 1st of two bachelorette parties and to pick out the girls outfits. I'm having the 1 bachelorette in Denver for my closest friends, one def cannot make it to MX, the other is still up in the air. The second will be in MX two days before the wedding! We're doing a catamaran, snorkeling, drinking etc. yay!
So I still have a lot to do. But I'm not worried. Just excited! We have 35 totally booked with 7 more RSVP'd that have not booked yet. Way more than I thought which is really great.
Happy planning ladies! The countdown is on for us!!

I've seen this item - Pre-departure Brochure and Meet the Guest Page - but don't know what it actually is. I've never seen it at any of the weddings. Can someone please tell me what would go into the pre-departure brochure and how to get it to the guests. Also, I love the meet the Guests idea and I have that on my website but I doubt many people are going there to look.... What ideas do you have for Meet the Guests
