    Thanks!!! It was simple and I had loads of paper left that I wanted to use up.

    I had about 70 people. We didn't assign seating at all. there was no formal schedule - more like a garden/cocktail party. There were 2 speeches that lasted all of 5 min!

      Thanks again

       

      the more tulle the better - wish I had more. i was thinking even plain muslin along with tulle would work nicely as well!

        Brandy you are very lucky things went so easy for you at the SS office.  It went really easy for me too, but I used the marriage certificate from here because I didn't want to risk using a foreign government document...  Maybe it all depends on the country, I do not know!


        Married the love of my life in April!!

          Lisa, The album we get from our photographers is 11 x 13. I think I'm going to use the groupon towards parents albums and probably do the 12 x 12. For the rest of our vacation photos, I want to order the coffee table size.

            Thank Lisa!!! As far as photo books go, I really like the 10 x 10 I think its the perfect size, the 8 x 8 is a bit small and the 12 x 12 is big so the 10 x 10 for me is the perfect size, thats what size our album is from our photographer and I think its perfect!

LOL .. i'm so stressed over this AHR i just want to go back the two of us and relax on an actual honeymoon!!!!!  .... too bad the last minute deal would still cost us $2600!! yikes :S

                  Laura, that would be awesome if you got to go on an actual honeymoon. I think we are waiting until November to go on ours.

                   

                  What do you ladies think of smores for our AHR favors? I was thinking of making strawberry and chocolate marshmallows and then packaging them with graham crackers, chocolate and directions. I want something affordable and cute, but also different.

                    hubby thinks i'm crazy for looking at going back so soon (we were thinking for a 1 yr anniversary) but i'm just dying to be back there with no family around!! LOL  it's an 'option', but as bad as it sounds, we're waiting to see how much we have $-wise after our AHR on saturday.  We really were thinking of re-doing our kitchen this summer if we had enough $, so i think that will be first on the list.  However, maybe.. just maybe we'll have enough for another trip too?? ;) a girl can dream right??

                     

                    I love the idea of smores!!!!

                     

                    is it bad that we're not doing favours at our AHR????  we're trying to keep is away from being an actual 'reception' but more of just a big meal.. we're not having a dj or anything.. hopefully people aren't peeved that we don't have favours for them. At least there will be a TON of food!

                      I think smore's are a fab idea. we gave away 2 flavours of gourmet marshmallows. but Lua,  i don't think it's bad that you're not giving anything away you are putting on the party after all.

                      our AHR was super relaxed....kind of like a garden cocktail party, lots of food, white wine sangria, beer, dessert, music a la ipod play list and 2 speeches (a roast to the groom which is a family tradition and us thanking everyone for coming) that lasted all of 5 min.

                      we definitely wanted to stay from a "reception" feel.
