    SDBeachgirl, we're getting married at the ZLAC rowing club on Mission Bay. We're staying at the Catamaran right down the street. I love the idea of just walking down the bayside path to my wedding! Phil's BBQ is doing our catering, and I think I'm going to order my cake from Cupcakes Squared in Point Loma. I was actually born and raised in SD, and my family is there. I just moved to Houston in September to be with my fiance. How funny that I'm getting married the day before your bday, because you're getting married ON my bday!!

    How long have you lived in SD? Where do you live?

      That's really bizarre! I grew up in SD. I only lived in Houston (Clear Lake) until I was about 3. I went to highschool at Mission Bay High. I lived right across from the catamaran on sail bay for about 7 years prior to buying my condo in Scripps Ranch.

      Welcome back! I'm sure your wedding will be beautiful right on the bay. I love that area. We see weddings at the rowing club all the time when we ride our bikes down to the beach.

      What area did you grow up in?

      Sorry to have totally gone off track of this blog. Just kinda funny. Small world!

        I am going to integrate my escort/seating cards with my thank you cards. I found some 3x5 trifold pretty cards that will allow me to stamp out the person's name and write a message inside. Then again, I only have 19 guests, so its doable to write them all at once now :) I want to thank them for coming to the wedding on the wedding day so we don't have to do it after!

          Good thing that I read this thread - we are starting to receive gifts from the registry and I was going to send out the Thank You cards to those who cannot make the wedding but sent a gift. I wasn't sure if I should wait until the actual wedding. I don't want them to think that I didn't appreciate it but then again, it seems too early to send it since we aren't even married yet! Hmmm.

            We too are using the escort cards as thank you cards as well. Actually our "escort cards" are actually message in a bottles and the message in the bottle will be a thank you scroll. I was second guessing doing the thanks you's this way as many people say it should be personalized.But I think it is a cute touch that would be appreciated by my guests, Thoughts? Do thank you's have to be personalized?

              ya know what.. i say DO IT.. send out a pre-thank you card..

              I hate when i go to a wedding and I dont get a thank you card for months after.

              if they were thoughful enough to send out a gift early i say return the kindness with a little extra special early thank you card. then BAAAMM double up with a second one after the wedding. :)

                I vote after - ppl know you're super busy leading up to it, and a Thank You card with photos from your wedding, especially if they won't be joining you, will be much more appreciated!

                    Great thread- I was having the same issue. I think I am going to send thank you notes as I get the gifts up until about a month before the wedding and then do a photo card for the remainder of the gifts, which I will also resend to the early gift givers.
