    Sdamian1,

     

    Don't give up..google away for the smell you want!  Sad faces are not allowed on the MP2012 forum because we are so freakin' awesome

    Yay! I am starting to buy things to put mine together! What kind of scent did you put on the cork? I used this tahitian vanilla flower spray for the save the dates but I am almost out and they dont sell it anymore  I was wanting a coconut type smell but no luck

        Alright Ladies it's FRIDAY.  It's time to party, relax and get your DIY on!

        I am package happy, sort of   Well remember a few post back where I purchased a whole bunch of stuff (well some came in).  FI had the nerve to open a box that was address to me.  He called me while in training and said "babe I opened a box and ummm"  I immediately knew that the box he opened was his PlayStation 3 that I purchased for his bday on the 22nd.  Being in training I couldn't argue so I just hung up the phone.  Being super pissed I sent him a text that said "I love you but even in marriage do not open my mail"  When I came home his face was so pitiful so I played on his emotions the whole nite (I know I know).  But even after that I told him that he better not touch it until his Bday.  Well he follows rules to the hilt because all the packages today where piled up LOL

         

        The packages included my birdcage veil (which ummm I may not wear although beautiful) I have to see how it will look with my dress to determine this.  There's something about trying on bridal stuff in regular clothes that just don't cut it.  The second box were the centerpieces (so I thought).  These are BlumeBoxes purchased from Blumebox.com.  These are really cute and have great potential if you DIY the hell out of them BUT  I purchased the Fuschia ones (the blue was tooooooo light).  And when looking at these I said WTF why did I do that because my flowers are pink.  ugh  totally a dumb moment and potentially a hasty purchase.

         

        Birdcage veil without the fascinator (it has swaroski crystals and pearls on the end) this will match my wedding sash perfectly.

         

        here are pictures...  BirdCage Veil from powderbluebijoux on etsy.jpg

         

        blumeboxes... great idea maybe the wrong color... unless I DIY them in Blue I'll see what FI thinks

        These are phone pictures not the best quality but at least you get the feel.  The flowers are totally not it but what I had to throw in the boxes really quick.  Our flowers will come from Marvin. 

        Scratching my head....

            Just wanted to update ---- some have already recieved our invites!!  My FI has recieved 3 texts so far; here's what they said:

             

            1)  "OMG!!! Just got your wedding invitation in the mail!!! Holy $@#! that's adorable!!! Nice work u two!!! I love it!!!

             

            2)  "Got the invite today.  That's probably the coolest invite we've ever got.  Good job.  We are not gonna be able to make it though.  Thank you very much for the invite and thinking about us."

             

            3)  "Holy $#!%!  Such a cool wedding invitation!!  How did you make it smell like hte beach!?"

             

            So there we are!!  SUCCESS --- at least from an excitement factor, which is what we were going for!  Now, hopefully, they will check out the website and get even more excited and book. :) 

             

            I mean, it must be good if we got 2 "Holy $#!%"'s, right?!?  Hahaha.  :)

             

            Plus, I'm psyched that someone thinks they smell like the beach!  I scented the corks like WAY to early (like 5 weeks early, haha), so that's awesome!

             

            On cloud 9!!!  Happy Planning today, beautiful women!  Thanks for celebrating with me. So thankful for you all.

                At this point I am so not sure!!  It was too costly to only have one shipped as the shipping would have cost more than 1 blumebox (crazy right).  I have 10 days to contact them if I wish to return it.  Since we are using the BM's bouquet as the main centerpiece and their flowers will be pink I'm so not sure.  I'll talk to FI this weekend to see what he thinks but my gut says 10 days is counting down..

                 

                What projects have you worked on? Finished etc..

                    Girl wipe those tears.... once you get your invites you will immediately forget that you didn't hear from Sarah (she is that damn good).  If you told her a date that you needed them buy and you sent her the money, they will be there.  She typically sends them (overnight or priority with delivery confirmation) 2-3days before your due date. 

                     

                    Post post post ;-)

                    haven't hear from Sarah,I have email her a few time no response yet

                     

                     

                    I will up loading so pictures later ... let know what you think
