    The other pics I have right now are the banner for our basket which will gather cards & our "guest book" - which is a mad lib/marriage lib:

     

     

     

    The banner was made using Maya Road chipboard pieces for the banner & letters, the same text weight paper (blue) that I used for the envelope liners (using my scraps!), the orange & white twin and I glittered the scalloped edge. Here's an up close pic of them (please excuse the color distortion..):

     

     

    I also have an "M" that is glittery blue and on skewers, that will be in the basket - don't think I've taken a decent pic of that yet.  I have the paper bags and labels done for the survival kits, just haven't packaged the kits up (and I won't until I get my nearly-final headcount). I will take some pics tonight if I get home from work at a decent hour (!$#$%%^!!!!).

     

    Paper crafting at it's best...! I am just hoping it doens't look "too" DIY and homemade - that's what I'm trying to balance.

        You are too sweet! Luckily I no longer have to make my MOH bouquet anymore so all I have left is my OOT bags and I'm going to pier one to get some small gift bags and ten the dollar store and target to load up on my items. Are you having your OOT bags delivered to the rooms for $4/ea or are you going to find all of your guests am give it to them personally?

Using the trip as a Thanksgiving holiday, almost 100% of our guest list has committed to coming. My key requirements were Beach and Family. This way I get both at least! I will certainly miss the tropical feel, open bar, etc. But my fiance and I both agree this is for the best.

          We will be traveling on our original date for our honeymoon, since we have already booked air and are certainly still excited to experience EDR!

          I hope you all continue to enjoy your planning and have wonderful weddings at EDR!

          So sorry to hear that, but I'm certain you will have a fabulous beach wedding in NC and still have a fabulous honeymoon at EDR!!! Since you will be there the same time as our wedding, stop by....we are not doing a fancy reception type thing, but a cocktail hour...with the donkey of course!!!

              I'm going to give them the bags at the welcome dinner on the night they arrive. Anyone who doesn't make it in time for the dinner, we'll tell them to meet us at the beach bar or martini bar, and give them to them at that time. for the one or two people staying off site, who may not be at EDR until the wedding day, I may mail them ahead of time, or just not give them one (I mean, they couldn't stay at our property to help us with rates, so am I really concerned about them getting stuff..? they'll still get a favor at the wedding). I haven't made up my mind on that.

              I saw the one below on pinterest, and my graphic designer friend tweaked it for us.  I figured all of our friends have a crazy sense of humor, so these should be hilarious to read. I'll bind them into a "book" of sorts when we get back.

                I decided to do the madlib as our guest book too... actually I just finished designing them last night.  We're getting them printed from vistaprint on their rack cards.  Here's a sneak peek... I based it off of the same Wedding Madlib that was on pinterest... I love that site...
