    Hi Ladies,

     

    We invited people BY PHONE for the wedding and some via email.  We only printed about 10 invites (from Michael's) to send to family overseas.  My parent's are Italian and felt that if formal invitations went out that people would feel obligated to still send a gift and they were uncomfortable with that idea since it is a destination wedding....so I've been listening to my mother complaining about the fact that she has to call so many people, to which I respond - it was your choice!

     

    I still don't have bridesmaid dresses - I'm only having a MOH and one other person.  I loved the idea of a destination wedding to be able to keep things small.  I'm from a family to which "small" = 250 people.  The concept of under 100 is totally foreign...I love it!

     

    My colours are hot pink, baby pink and chartreuse.  I think I might do gray for the bridesmaids.....

        UGH

         

        Well i have 2 BM's and my sister was my Maid of honor. I also have my best friend whom is male and he was supposed to be the man of honor but we were torn about how to have it all blend in.

         

        My sister is in her 40's and she recently found out she is 12 weeks pregnant. Because of her age and some fibroids they discovered she is VERY high risk not to mention she will be past 30 weeks by our travel date so the doctor has recommended she does not travel. Its not her fault but it doesnt make it suck any less

         

        I can still have my man of honor but i have to decide how to blend it all in and i dont have much time to outfit him etc.

         

        regardless my one and only sister will now not be my maid of honor or be at my wedding so its a bummer. Although i am thrilled to be an aunt for the first time :) have to look at the bright side :)

              Yeah i feel ya with the moving thing..wedding planning and well just life in general, but it will all work out in the end hun..... if worse comes to worse go and get him the shorts u got the other guys with the same shirt,,,,that way they all match. then for ur man of honor just do a different bouta for him.

                Stay positive Janet, I get the frustration with last minute changes but I am sure it will all work out.  It's your day so don't sweat the small stuff!!!! As long as you and FI are there it'll be beautiful and perfect!!!!
