    I don't know Ella, doesn't sound like a bad place to be! Go over your list again and if you really don't have anything left to do- pat yourself on the back & enjoy being a bride to be!

      Happy Birthday Queen Diva! The boutonniere and hair pieces look great. Like Erin said, very unique.


      Tris, houses are like men, the right one will come along and you'll instantly know. We weren't even really looking when we found ours. There was a few I loved online but just didn't feel like home when we checked them out.


      Here's a picture of my bikini bottoms that I customized. I'm thinking of doing another one with "BRIDE"

        Erin that's amazing! I wish I could stop finding new projects for myself. I seem to have a bunch of half projects on the go. Now you can just relax and blissfully await your wedding day without added stress.

          Happy birthday Queen diva! your bridesmaids are going to love them. so cute and original

          Erin that is fantastic that you are done, I wish I was so there was no more stress.

          Tris glad to hear you found a house you love and i can't wait to see those pics! Everytime I see someone else do it I get more courage to do it myself!

          Mocha-I will post a pic soon with my mock centerpieces, that bikini bottom rocks! great job. I have never tried iron ons but hearing all you ladies doing it I might have to try it if I have time.

                  Happy Birthday QueenDiva!


                  Lisa thanks for the ideas on the postcards and seating cards....FI looks great in his suit... looks familiar :)  hehe Where did you end up finding the suit from?


                  I have a few questions that came to mind as I was going through the last 4 days of posts... been a busy week!

                  For the girls that are doing the hair extensions or that have done them in the past, what method do you reccomend? I usually wear the clip in kind or the glue in ones but I was kinda thinking it might be fun to do the long term ones for the 3 wks we will be traveling... any suggestions or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated! I dont want to do any that will ruin my already thin hair... Also cost is kind of an issue so I cant go crazy!


                  For those of you who are doing eye lash extensions will you share the details of that as well...Im interested in that also :)


                  Where are girls finding the bridal iron on's? I keep checking craft stores and they dont carry them.. I was hoping to not have to pay shipping and have to order them online again...


                  Have you girls found colored sand for your sand ceremony? I want yellow and blue but dont know if I will be able to find it in stores... any ideas?


                  So Im suppose to pick up my wedding dress wednesday after it being with the seamstress for the past 3 weeks. He is shortening the train on it so I dont have to have a bustle that makes the dress look worse... Im so nervous that it wont be short enough still and will have to spend the night holding up the back of my dress so I can walk around... If I dont feel good about it that may be the motivation I need to buy that 3rd dress through DHGate! lol  


                  Hope you all have a fabulous Valentine's Day tomorrow!!! :)

                  33 booked including bride and groom

                    Kathy, I found the different bridal iron ons at Michaels. I think they are discontinuing some because they were in the clearance section, but not marked down since they are only $1. Some of them didn't stick so I bought some glue from Walmart for gluing stones on fabric.


                    I got lash extensions done at a nail salon for $30 and I had to work really hard to get them off after 3 weeks. I probably should have just kept them on. For the wedding, I will probably get them done again but just the short lashes, not medium and certainly not long.


                    Finally, you can buy colored sand at Michaels. They have some in the with the floral supplies but if you want brighter colors, I suggest checking out the stuff for sand art in the kids craft area. I saw that they have started to make an area for sand in the wedding section but not at the store close to me yet.


                    Good luck with your dress. I hope it looks great so you don't have to try to find another one.


                    Happy Valentine's Day Ladies! I hope we all get lots of love for our last v-day before the weddings!

                      QueenDiva, I love the bout and the hair piece. Happy Birthday!!


                      Ella, I wish I was done. I'm barely starting on stuff now. Trying to keep it simple though.


                      Tris, Good Luck on the house hunt!
