            Tisha, I think there will always be a slight difference. After a few weeks, no one will be zoomed in on your hand anyways! They do look like beautiful rings.


            That's amazing that you were able to contribute so much for your family!


            Love your big smile Laura!

              Meggers that's awesome!


              Has anyone been receiving gifts yet? I know we got a few cheques, is it bad that I haven't sent thank you notes? Should I send the notes from here and have FI deposit the cheques right away?

                thanks sheri!

                we've recieved 2 gifts so far ... a cheque and cash.  we deposited them right away because well, we needed them to help pay our property taxes!!! it's not bad at all that you haven't sent thank-yous. Gosh, my cousin got married October 2 and we still haven't recieved thank you notes!!!!!! ... my brother got married in July and sent thank yous 4 months later...

                So what FI and I did, is we made up a spreadsheet where we're plugging in names and what we got so that we don't forget to thank anyone when the time comes.  I'm thinking of ordering some cards through vista when we get home with one of our wedding pics on them. THen we can mail right away to those who already gave us gifts, and we'll have them ready to mail out after our AHR to those who give to us then. :)


                The joke going around in our family right now is that FI and I have our thank you's sent out before my cousin!!  my mom is so ticked about them not thanking anyone yet (like 6 months after their wedding) that she's going to mention something to my aunt+uncle (his parents) in jamaica lol

                  Laura- love the idea of a spreadsheet to keep track of gifts for sending thank yous, I'm definitely goingto start one tonight! Ps that location of your girls weekend looks amazing! Meggers- that is sooo exciting about the honeymoon for a gift! Mocha- I never found any fuchsia or orange ties that I like, most places only have pastels right now nothing bright. And it's tough because I have a picture in my head of exactly what I want them to look like - fuchsia and orange paisley but no luck finding them :( also not sure if you saw but I posted the template for my table numbers that you asked about, post #17 I think it was We leave 2 weeks from today! Woooo hoooo!

                    WOW Meggers, that is an awesome gift. So thrilled for you guys. When do you go?Also thanks for that spoon trick cause when I cry I look like a martian!!! My eyes get so puffy and bloodshot it's crazy. I CANNOT cry at my wedding or all my pictures will be ruined!


                    Laura, glad to hear you had a great time and got a nice little gift! We have received 3 cheques so far and we haven't sent thank you cards but called and said thank you to one and said thank you personally for the other two and will send all the thank yous at the same time. We are also keeping a spreadsheet of gifts received so not to forget. Also one of my staff went to a cousins wedding over 6months ago and hasn't gotten a thank you and she is PISSED. At the end of April if she doesn't get one she is asking for her gift back bahahahaha


                    Oh and never go to bed mad for sure. That is the best way to keep a relationship together!

                    Speaking of stress and fights with FI's I had a bit of meltdown this weekend and told FI he needs to step it up and help me out and today on his day off he cut the ribbons for the welcome bag tags, put labels on shot glasses, cleaned the house and did some research online for our honeymoon in greece. He also came shopping with me at Micheals yesterday (he HATES that place) and we got a flower girl basket and i added flowers to it. I bought the same center piece for my hair flower as Laura and finished that, bought some cardstock and brads for my fan programs which are too small for my whole punch so back to the drawing board on that one! I fell MUCH better today!


                    Greys you dress looks beautiful on you!


                    BRANDY-WHERE ARE YOU!!!! lol

                      Okay, wow...  I miss so much when I'm busy at work!


                      Greys, I love your dress!! It looks great on you!


                      I can't remember who had the ring picture, but I agree, after the recoloring, I think they will look better...I really don't think they look that bad at this point though.


                      Laura, I'm glad you had a great trip this past weekend!  The location was definitely beautiful!  I also love the idea of the spreadsheet, I'm such an Excel girl!!  I love my spreadsheets!


                      Meggers, that is an awesome gift!!!!  So exciting!!!


                      I know I've missed a bunch of other stuff, but... my memory is going as we get closer to the date.  Speaking of the date....  I'm glad to see on Entertainment Tonight they are doing the count down to my wedding...oh wait, it's for the royal wedding, not my wedding...just lucky that the whole world gets to know how many days until my wedding, thanks to Prince William and Kate picking the same date!!! 



                      Married the love of my life in April!!
