    It is in Spanish. I could probably translate it myself, but I'm not sure if they would accept just anyone's translation.

      Hey Girls!

       

      Mocha, you need to get it translated by an official government translator from what I understand. One more hoop to jump through!

       

      Laura I know it's daunting to have that list but honeslty it may not be as bad as you think. I was wigging out a few days ago about everything we had left to do. Hubby pitched in and now we are completely good to go, with 2 days to spare!! I'm borrowing our office projector as well. It's not like they are going to use it over the weekend anyway!

       

      Good call on the cake mix... I find it always turns out better anyway! Mmmmmmmm buttercream. We ordered cupcake minis from a gourmet cupcake place and it was really reasonable. We got 72 of them with custom frosting and little flower decorations for under $80! The Macrons were another story... for 48 of those suckers it will cost the same as all the cupcakes! Oh well.

       

      Lisa I will add you on FB too. Ivan is my photog and I specifically requested that he send me my photos in time for our AHR this weekend. No dice. Part of the reason I chose this date for our AHR is that I was sure I would have the photos by now. At least Del Sol was professional enough to get me my TTD photos, so I can display those.

        If you're using choc cake mix. add in some choc pudding and an extra egg - they will be super moist and delicious!

        AHR  update:

         

        - i spray-painted all of the frames i bought and they're looking great

        - made up a seating plan that of course MIL didn't agree with and she went and changed it all around leaving tables of 4/5/6/7 ... meanwhile i had all tables of 6 and only one of 7. thankfully I talked to hubby about it and he's going to tell his mom we're sticking to our seating plan or else there will be NO seating plan.  she kept moving things around keeping families all together. i was so frustrated thinking are hubbies aunts and uncles 10 and can't sit with some of my family??? grrrr MIL seems to think they all have to sit together.  Anyway.. that is that

        - as for cupcakes, i was going to do all 80+ from scratch, BUT still have yet to find a recipe that is just what i want - ie. nice and light and fluffy and moist. SO.... I'm going to do the unspeakable.. make the cupcakes from boxed cake mix GASP!! But, then I still plan on frosting them with homemade buttercream frosting ;)

         

        What's left to do:

        - finish table number photos and get them  printed

        - finalize seating plan and figure out how we're going to display it

        - get a disposable camera for our AHR whiteboard guestbook station

        - bake all the cupcakes and get them in the freezer so all i have to do next saturday am is thaw them and frost them

        - get a playlist together for music that we're going to play in the background all night

        - figure out and get vases/shells/flowers etc. for centerpieces

        - edit the video from the wedding so we can play it

        - find a PROJECTOR! ahhh...

         

        so much to get done and only 9 days to go!

            Meggers - I think I'm just going to lie, say I want to assume my common law husband's name. Or I will go to other offices and see if I can slip it by someone.

             

            Lesee - That looks great. Can I ask what you had as favors? I was thinking the dessert bar was enough, but now I'm reconsidering.

                Lesee your set up was BEAUTIFUL! loved it!!! I liked the way you used the lanterns and displayed the pics! How easy was it to hang stuff on the tent? I made buntings that I want to attached to the garden tent the venue rented for us, but I'm hoping it's not a complete PITA. What type of string did you use to hang the pics on?

                    HAHAHHAHA WELL...let me tell you ...make sure you have a good sturdy ladder and a few caribbeaners for the top of the tent. we ended up using a table and a ladder on top of the table. probably not the smartest but it was the only way we could do it. A regular ladder wasn't tall enough so we had to improvise. the tulle was actually really easy, we bought the large tulle packages from michaels and didn't have to cut any of the pieces strung length wise. we fed the tulle thru the caribbeaners so there were no knots. Super easy to clean up that way. All the other pieces of tulle were draped over the support poles. We just hooked the lanternes together and tied them to the corners (or the caribbeaners for the center of the tent) with fish line. The photos were strung up with hemp string (cheap cheap at michaels) and strung through holes in the support poles.
