    Thanks!  I have a lot of siblings, so it just them and their S.O's, but you know what....they are going and that's means the world to me!  :) 

     

    As for the Tucan Garden, it's just to the side of the Gazebo on the lawn, so it's not really a "garden" per se.  But I will try to find a picture of the set up, I know there is one on the MP locations thread, I will try to find the link for ya!

     

    I think coming into the Cocktail hour later and doing your dance is a great idea!  Your wedding is going to be here sooooo soon!  So excited for you!!!

    I didn't know there was a Tucan Garden!  Do you happen to have any pics? 

     

    Our wedding is at 4pm, and the cocktail hour starts at 5pm.  We were going to take our pictures after the ceremony and before the cocktail hour and then just have the photographer take pictures of people at the cocktail hour (kind of like a reception... since we won't be having a reception nor will we have a photographer after the cocktail hour).   MAYBE though.... we'll spend more time taking pics and then enter fashionably late and do the First Dance right away like you and Coco said... I kind of like that since it's unique and dramatic, hehe.  Oooooh, I'm excited!  I like the idea of toasts at dinner.  Makes more sense and doesn't try to squeeze in too much for the cocktail hour either.  THANK YOU for your input!

      Here is the link to a picture of the Tucan Garden, it's at the very bottom.  Nothing fancy, but close to the gazebo so peeps can start the party!

        Coco,

         

        The guestbook  notecards look great!!!

         

        I'm glad to hear that you &your FI are holding strong through the stress.. when planning the happiest day of your life you quickly find out who is really & truly happy for you !

        Well we know that this has been a trying week for FI & I yet, by the Grace & Mercy of God we are pulling through.  I wanted to thank you for allowing me to vent (some via email, phone;-) & by way of this forum).  It wasn't until this week that I understood why people would say "that planning a wedding brings out the worst in people" however; unfortunately I do now.    I think, well I know the part that bothered me the most are the sacrifices that I have made along with my giving nature, and the fact that I totally felt that I was being taking advantage of.  But just as my mom said "Sometimes you  have to take a step back, so that others will take a step forward.  Because all too often, people will continue to allow you to do, in order for them to hold onto their own."  Because of the way that I am built, I don't take kindly to people of this nature (and I let it be known) but that's me. So step back I did (although I'm struggling with that as I'm a doer by nature). 

         

        So, with a non-DIYing house as everything and I do mean EVERYTHING is packed up along with no "visual" perception that I am wedding planning things are gradually being done.  I can go on and on about why men wait to do stuff etc.. but I dont' think this forum has enough room LOL  My future step-daughter even sent me a text asking what my son wants for Christmas  (baffling).  With that alone I had to remind myself that FI & I are the ones to be married and although this is very urgent to us, to others it is not nor will it be no matter how angry you get. 

         

        So, this morning (the last day of my bulk printing for work reasons), I came in at 7  to print off our guestbook notecards (these are 8 different 4x6 cards with 4 different butterfly pictures & 4 different Beachy/Cancun pictures, that the guest will leave their wedding wishes. I will have them laminated after all is said and done to preserve them.-see below) and the 2nd page of our wedding program which list the bridal party etc..however my step-daughter's name or my cousin's name are included nor will there be a reprint. 

         

        Have a great weekend ladies....oh and yes, when I get home these will be boxed up

I can't wait to wear this dress

            You really learn a lot about yourself when others behave grossly. It's hard for someone like you to understand because you are there for others in a drop of a hat which is evident just from how you handle yourself on this forum so it's aggravating when you don't get one millionth of that respect back but you are a classy chick and doing your thing girl. You know we all have your back -that is what I love about this forum the most- the outpouring from people you barely know that still somehow care and understand all of your biggest concerns and fears. i really appreciate all the women here.

              Thanks so much ladies for the kind words I was so excited about my dress but kind of down because i went alone and I was soooo happy reading your posts. my daughter is my maid of honor and i didn't do a bridal party and she is busy with Law school finals and my sister is on her own planet and i didn't want to bother anyone since I feel bad i don't have a bridal party lol. My FI felt bad and cancelled his meeting to drive me there and wait outside and than take me to dinner so i could gain a few more pounds lmao and than shopping his most hated thing lol. He really does love me and it makes you appreciate what you have ;). And my mom made my final payment on my dress so i am loving her too lol. All good. Have a beautiful weekend ladies.

               

              Jamie I have the same thing pretty much just our siblings and close family and sometimes I wonder if it's worth all the expense but than I realize it's my day and those I love most will be with me and that's what matters ;).

                Where are they even fitting you?  LOL!  It looks great as is!!  You say you gained 5 pounds, but your arms and back look great, since we can see you in the mirror.  I can't see where you put them!  Gorgeous dress!!!  Too bad no one else was there to see it at the time --- but we're celebrating with you!

                  coco!!!!  I am glad you and FI are pushing through, but that's why you are marrying him!  You can make it through the good, the bad, the ugly!!!  I hope things get better soon!!!  Wedding planning definitely brings out the worst in people and I think we all understand that!!!  Vent anytime!!!!

                 

                ps....I love the notecards!!!  Once again you have managed to out do yourself!  :)  Hope you have a great weekend!!!! xoxo

                  The note cards look great Coco! You are so talented! You & other ladies on this site have helped bring out my creative side!  Seeing everyones things makes me anxious, as well as excited about my own projects( whenever I start) ! Lol.  Well I actually did today!  Anyway, things always work themselves out! Don't let small things get you out of who you are!

                    I just want to say thank you, to all the brides out there that have welcomed me & made me feel a part of this wonderful group!  Even though I haven't been a part of this forum as most of you all, no one has treated me as a "newbie" event one has been super sweet & nice!, I look forward to reading the posts & seeing new projects each day.  I'm so glad that I found this site!  I now use this more than my FB! Lol.  Just wanted to say thanks ladies for all the help & opinions!! Have a great weekend!
