My wedding is June 11, 2011 which is actually between yours and Lindo626. I would appreciate if the starfish can be passed to me ans then I will pass it on to Lindo626.
BTW, thanks for the comforting words, its so nice to know that there are people who know exactly how you feel.

I would have if I could afford it....I spent $3300 to take my guests on a private catamaran as a thank you gift and have lobster tails grilled for everyone - that is so important to me, and I am sacraficing on a photographer and DJ just to make it happen - but to each their own, right...lol
Dont stress about the number of people attending...I started to do that too...we currently have 56 people booked (but about 11 of those people just booked within the past month or so)....and now I am freaking out because I have to pay the 12/pp for everyone after the first 2 hrs...lol....BUT, even though we have that many people, we are still very disappointed in a few - my fiances dad and brother wont be there - he is very upset and I feel really bad for him - but HE actually reminds me that the people that are coming are the people we need to focus our attention on....the people that are making US feel important are the people WE should make feel important - whether it is 5 or 50 people, think of those people, not all the ones that arent thinking about you!!
Lindo626 - I dont think I know your name..lol...I will mail the starfish to you after I get back since you are the month after me, right??? I dont think there is anyone in between us....
Erin - Thanks for the heads up on the hair cost - that is CRAZY...they offered me 10% off...lol...so that makes it like $90 instead of $100...haha I think my mom will be the only one to get her hair done...
