I have some family & friends coming up the day/night before as i live 6/7 hours drive away from some. I will not go all out with the decorating, i will just do balloons for the tables and favours in my wedding colours (aqua & white). Favours nothing to big, just a wee aqua organza bag with white love heart mints or something like that, I will have a DJ, which i have just booked tonight. I will be ordering a 3 tier sponge wedding cake, plain white icing, i have bought the ribbon to go round it, also i will use the cake topper we have bought for mexico (out initials) and i will be buying some cute little cutters of ebay in the shape of starfish and a palm tree so i can colour some icing myself (light blue) and cut wee star fish etc to put on cake :-) For the buffet i will just do a cold finger buffett... sandwiches, pizza, crisp, salads etc etc.

Im not sure what else i will do if anything... any suggestions????

Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! Only suggestions I would make: have a projector with wedding photos/video (if you are doing that) or a table with some wedding photos! Since everyone will want to see your big day. And then do something fun for a guest book, so that you can look back and see who was all there. We used this idea in Mexico, and will likely do it at our AHRs as well: get a white board, and a camera. Have guests write their well wishes, advice, etc. on the whiteboard, then pose with it, and have someone take a photo of it. Then once you have all the photos, you can make a photobook /guestbook. I know some girls on here have done props, like silly moustaches, bowties, etc. and had people pose with those!

 

DH is more in charge of the AHRs since he is a former chef and has more knowledge on that side. I think we have one tenatively booked for April 16, and working on the other one now. I know it seems a little late, but we just returned from the wedding and get our new house mid-March. So not much spare time! Plus DH's sister is expecting her first little one in a few weeks, so that's also adding to our list of stuff to do LOL!

              HAHAHA I guess taking care of the house and our new husbands besides our jobs will keep us quite busy!

                Hahaha! Nan, you're funny! My FI takes care of the house (and hopefully himself haha), we already live together :) I work a lot though, so that will def. keep me busy.

                  Made me laugh too :-) Haha, Although, taking care of the house and my soon to be husband happens already (shared i must say... he helps in the house and he looks after me too) :-)

                   

                  Hmmmmmm, back to the drawing board!!!!
