Let me tell you.. I left out after talking to Summer12. I went to buy a bottle of Hennessey (I love my brown alcohol)... came back and while having a drink I cut/seperated all 20 pages (60 DND sings).  Then it was time to meet FI for dinner.  Upon my return I showed him the welcome book cover along with page 1.. he was please... then he said "wow these are coming out really nice" in reference to the DND signs.  So since he wanted to play 1 game on the PS3, I trimmed all of the DND signs.  Tomorrow I will cut all of the holes out..  Oh BTW I'm trimming with a drink LOL  cheers.gif

Here are some pics that have been requested by ndvidul of the shirts that we gave only to our bridal party at the welcome dinner (while they were already dressed for the dinner so there wasn't any risk of them actually wearing them AT the dinner :)

 

One thing I will caution against is these shirts were not soft (in any way shape or form). It was more for the novelty (and the guys actually wore them). You can see what my bridesmaid Kay did as we got ready for the wedding to make it "wearable" while getting her hair and make up done :)

 

Back of the shirts said the following:

 

 

Ladies (Back):

 

Name

Beach Angel 007

Chelsea & Eric's Wedding

Riviera Maya, Mexico

June 19, 2010

 

 

Guys (Back)

 

Name

Makin' It Happen

 

Chelsea & Eric's Wedding

Riviera Maya, Mexico

June 19, 2010

We presented the shirts AT the welcome dinner, including one that had a picture of one of our friend's faces that said, "STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN" LOL!!

One more important thing to add. If you do buy your girls any shirts, I would HIGHLY suggest ordering the "Ladies T-shirt" from Vistaprint. I ordered one to wear for {Red-i} and it's sooo soft! It's hard to see the details here and let me know if you need any other "real" photos of it to see the style, but here's what it looked like just on the Vistaprint site:

Thanks girls!  Yes, my FI could care less.  Every time I mention something, I see his eyes glaze over.  The girls at work probably wish I would just get married already.  I wish I could book my locations!  I hate how they are letting some people do it in advance, and not letting others.  I think that is the biggest problem with MP, the inconsistency is awful.  I'm jealous of all of your DIY projects.  I'm lazy!  Or too busy, one of the two.  Haha.

Hola Ladies,

 

Well up at 6am out the house by 6:30a to get my car inspected, brakes & oil (winter prep)... I was able to work on our wedding ceremony script & vows. So with two hours to wait, I was able to get a lot done.  So after running around and back in the house by 11:30a I decided to take advantage of the rain/snow & friends (not many like to bundle up etc...) We are shoe queens so the rain or snow don't mix well with our collection (I digress).  Anyway, I finished all 55 Guest DND signs (minus 5...those that have extra large holes)   Tools:  Fiskars Circle Cutter, Memories scissors (part of my kit), tweezers, bling & Martha Stewart's ballpoint-tip glue pin.

Don't you just love the Friskars?

 

Haha, I was actually using the weather as an excuse to get a new pair of riding boots!
