Wow, one day of a seven hour class and I fall totally behind. First off, thank you everyone for the words of encouragement. It's been a problem over the last few months and now that I know for sure, I'm going to make sure to be okay with it. I don't have a wedding party, or any friends on my side coming down (except my photographer, who gave me a really nice pep talk yesterday, which was awesome) so I think I will ask my FFIL to walk me down. We're very close, they live only 3 blocks from us and we pretty much see them every week, and they are our future babysitters. Brandy, sucks being sick! Chicken soup, Emergen-C, zinc lozenges, OJ, lots of echinacea tea and you should be back in time. Meggers, flower wise you may want to just bring down a jewel or something for each bouquet, that way they'll be even more personalized and the girls carrying them may feel more special and maybe they could keep the charm afterwards? Just a thought Laura, your girls weekend looks like it was awesome, really nice pics. Tisha, don't stress about the rings, the cool thing is that they were both custom made especially for you. No one is ever going to examine them as closely and be as critical, they are beautiful and that's what matters. Greys, beautiful dress. Fits you wonderfully. You're going to be a gorgeous bride. Lisa, great job kicking his butt into gear. I've been trying for weeks and I think I've still got the bulk of responsibilities. I've found that if I get him to work on things with me as opposed to sending him off on his own, we're a lot more productive together. Definitely never go to sleep angry. The morning can be extremely awkward filled with unneccessary tension. FI always seeks to read my mind when I'm upset or frustrated, so I never even get the chance to go to bed angry. Can't remember who, but awesome score on the honeymoon! Since the bill has been footed, I'd start contacting the resort and finding out their spa menus and any other special things for you two while you're there. And on a productive note, FINALLY ordered our guestbook this weekend through Mixbook. I can't wait to see it in person. I included pics from us growing up and all our guests and pics of those who aren't able to make it. It will be an awesome keepsake. And the guestbook off of Etsy looks adorable. What do the pages inside look like? I can't believe the early April brides are leaving so soon! What a long strange trip this has been, huh?
