You're welcome, Erin. So I took advantage of the Groupon for Mixbook and decided that my guestbook is going to be how I use our childhood pictures in conjunction with each other. I really wanted to create collages and use them for decorating, but since our wedding party is so small there really isn't a place for them and this way I'll have the pictures of us in a much more viewable and keepsake format. Now I just have to keep on my mother and my FMIL to pull pics from our childhood. I'm also planning on using pics taken throughout our relationship (especially because our engagement shoot didn't have very many salvageable shots.) Lisa, I really like the dress you've "created" and if you LOVE, you should totally go for it. My to do list still includes putting together our cake topper, glueing the glass in our sand ceremony frame, buying some kind of vase for the sand, putting the OOT bag pieces together, getting a portable sound system, and finish writing our ceremony. Our insulated mugs came early and they sent us even more than we anticipated! The workmanship is a little lower quality than I expected: the handle glue on the mug is a little messy, and the rubber seal between the lid and the mug is thinner than mugs we already own. We got them from discountmugs.

I can't wait to see them Brandy!!!

 

Francine, that is a great idea on the photobook!  I'm sorry to hear about the quality of your mugs, hopefully they will still be good for your guests!

I got the Mixbook also.... I'm not sure what formatting I'm going to use yet or if i'm even going to use if for my guest book.  I may use it for a wedding photobook for FI's parents....we shall see>

Those brochures ROCK Brandy! 

 

Yes, we're sending out our AHR invites tomorrow.  They turned out really well.

 

It's freaking snowing AGAIN here.  Grrrr.  Forecasts are calling for a foot of snow today, and my little car doesn't love that.  I keep counting the days to Maui...

On the subject of Maui, FI's mother called him to whine AGAIN about not getting "invited" to Maui with us.  Um, I'm pretty sure "elopement" means just two people.  My mom is amazing and I'd love to have her at our wedding, but we decided it was going to be either ALL of our family, or NONE.  He handles his mom well though, and I have to just let him do it, but it is hard to bite my tongue when a grown woman acts so childish.  Bleh.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
