Nikki's Planning Pics - 12-5-09 wedding in PV

Recommended Posts

Well, I was married December 5th and finally doing my planning post! Whoops! Anyways, this forum has been a complete life saver to me! Almost all of the the ideas for my wedding has come this forum and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!! I wanted to share what I ended up doing in case it might help someone else with their planning. Thanks to everyone who I “borrowed†from – I didnâ€t write down all the names but know that Andi, Lauren, Marie-Sam, Kate, and Mel were just a few whose ideas I used  Thanks to all of those I didnâ€t mention too! The PV brides in general were a huge help and I loved the PV forum!

I sent out save the dates magnets from Vista print before I got into this forum so they donâ€t really follow my “theme†like the rest of the projects. I donâ€t have a pic of them either  so on to the next project!

I think the passports were my first big project. I did them as a mailing to everyone to tell them about the area, what we had planned, hotels, etc.

Taxi cards for guests to give to taxi drivers so they got to the right place! Front had where were going, phone #, etc. and back had where to take them back to  Thisis the envelope I put them in tied in sets of 5 or so with a ribbon for each place we went in the wedding. For some reason, I don’t have a picture of the actual cards but they are business card size printed on my computer.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
