I had tried the crest ones a long time ago, but not the new ones... I think this week I'll pick some up...not sure which brand, probably the one you mentioned before.

I found a venue with an outdoor gazebo that we can use for a champange brunch!! They specialize in weddings (they have like 10 halls) so everything we need can be taken care of on site. We will be having about 50 people, and I think I can swing the whole thing for under two grand!!
I was hoping to use a picture from the wedding for the AHR invites but do you girls think that will be enough time? I'm assuming I can get them out the second week of May, which is a month in advance.... ah I don't know!!!
That's really exciting about your AHR venue! It's such a relief (or was for me) to have the location taken care of at least. Regarding the invite, if you are going to do it just a month in advance, I'd at least get the word out to those that may need to travel a bit and make such reservations. Ours is July 30th, and we will be sending the invites out hopefully by the end of May. It's going to be a little later for us because we are using a picture from the wedding as our invite.

We're going to the other side (South Side) where there is a gorgeous waterfall that isn't as touristy as the ones nearby the resort, and maybe getting some horse pics, then driving around to Negril to some gorgeous beaches... from 10am to sunset the day after. I'm so pumped. It's awesome to see her so excited too! It puts me at such ease.
44 days until we leave. Craziness. I'm trying to get all of my design stuff done but I always end up working on my freelance projects and my OWN wedding projects are falling behind! Ahh!! The biggest "waiting game" I'm playing is that I can't print or finish anything really until I hear from my one friend. I know I posted it about it MONTHS ago but my BEST FRIEND moved to Australia on a whim with her BF for a year or so. Well they've extended their trip and even though she said she'd be at my wedding no matter what when I asked her to my BM, things changed quickly. I doubt she's going to come. Like 99.9% sure she won't be there. She already pretty much told me they can't afford it because they're traveling around, which is understandable, whatever, I'm sad, but I'm over it... the issue is that she is avoiding it because she doesn't want to hurt my feelings and let me down. I told her the VERY latest she needed to tell me was a month before we left (March. 23rd). If she was any other guest it wouldn't hold anything off, but because she's supposed to be my BM (I have her dress hanging in my closet and everything), I can't print the programs, I can't buy my BM gifts, etc. Ugh. Fun!
I don't know... nothing to do with the above paragraph but I've been feeling pretty down lately... anyone else in the same boat? I thought I'd be super excited at this time but I'm more down in the dumps than anything. I'm just telling myself it's all the stresses building up on me and I'll get over it.
Tris, that's really exciting about your photographer!!! I can't wait to see pictures of everything!! I'm sorry to hear about things with your best friend. I can totally understand how you'd be feeling, and it stinks that she can't just be up front with you. Does she know that you are waiting on her decision to take care of finalizing stuff you need to do? Also, I was feeling pretty down about things until I was finally able to secure our AHR venue yesterday. So, you are not alone...

He loves the idea too
I love this idea! Can't wait to see pics either!!
