    I can only imagine your stress level. I am sure I will be the same way, but I am so glad it all went off without a hitch in the end! Can't wait to see pics!!!

Then I got upset because there was problems with seating and I just wanted everything be perfect. I started crying. I tried not to but I was frazzled. It was so cute because all the Moms (my mom, my mother in law, my stepmother in law, and my grandmother in law) just started hugging me and reassuring me that everything was lovely. Then I had a margarita and all was right with the world again.

      All in all we had a great time. The food was incredible. I actually got to eat my wedding cake. My Father in Law gave us such a sweet toast. I think everyone enjoyed the low key nature of our shin dig. Everyone loved the favors. I am so glad We asked everyone to write us a message or wedding advice for our scrap book. The messages and advice were so touching and sweet. My friend Erica took over picture duties (Thank God) so when she sends them to me, I'll post them.
      Awe, you are so cute! I'm so glad to hear that everything worked out and all the "Moms" came to your aid in full force! haha

      Of course, being a BDW member, I can't wait to see the PICS! YEAH!!!

        I'm glad that there was a margarita there to get the party started! I would cry too. I hate when I work so hard at something and not everything goes perfect... of course, I'm positive that you were the ONLY one that thought anything of it!
        I'm glad it went so well after the stress.

          Aww Karen I'm so glad everything worked out! I'm sure it was just perfect. And things don't always run smoothly but in the end they work themselves out. I can't wait to see pics!

            Ha! That's EXACTLY (pretty much) how our AHR went.

            People started getting there while I was still setting up (and grungy) so I had to run to the B&B we were staying at to change.
            Lo and behold, the dress I had brought (the one I wore at the reception at Dreams) had been dry cleaned, and I didn't check it before I packed it for the AHR. So, guess what. The drycleaners had completely ruined it! All the little rhinestones all over the dress were gone, leaving little strings everywhere. I flipped the F out. Anyway, long story short, I clipped the strings and made do. Of course, on the way back to the site, while I was trying to fix my makeup, a big blob landed on my (already ruined) dress. Sometimes you just gotta laugh.

            And of course, the margaritas didn't hurt, either. And then my best friend and I did the Thriller dance for everyone as a surprise (long planned before the dang Phillipinos stole our thunder) and it was all good.

            Anyway, aren't you so glad it's all completely over and you can enjoy Jay and life together!?
