Great dress! You look stunning. I'm sure your cousin was very grateful to have you around helping them, that was very nice of you.
As for the favours, I am in the same boat so I just made a list of everyone who has for sure rsvp'd and booked and those who are on the fence and I am just going to order enough for both so that in case everyone does come (which is unlikely but I'm sure a few will) I will be prepared. Plus, its always good to have a few extras as accidents do happen...especially when hauling items from cold Canada to hot Mexico- trust me, I've lost many dear sculptures and masks etc from this change in pressure and temp (I have a hard suitcase and these items were very carefully wrapped so I know it wasn't from hard handling). Anyways, I know its a pain in the butt but its better to be over prepared than under, then whatever you don't use I'm sure the girls on here would love to buy off of you!
Good luck with your planning.

We live in a small town that wasn't prepared for this kind of labour, she she was flown out to Winnipeg where I was heading for the dress fitting. Long story short I had to leave a few days early and do lots of running around in the city for them, which I gladly did. Anyway... on to the dress fitting, the dress shop opened late and I waited outside the store, downtown, with my 2 year old, had to bring him with my BUT when I finally got to put my dress on again and then see the modifiaction I requested, I totally forgot all the craziness and fell in love with the dress all over again!!!! So as promised I have a pic to share with you ladies!
On another note, I am torn about how many favours to order!!! I know how many I have booked and RSVPed, but I know of about 10-14 more people that MAY last minute book. It's driving me crazy. I don't want to wait too much longer to order them because it's going to take 6-8 weeks to get them in and I don't want to be pushing it too close to christmas. I'm thinking of ordering a bunch of extra, but I don't really want to have too many if these people don't end up coming :S Ahhhhh... I don't know what to do. Everyone keeps telling me, well they waited to let you know they can't expect anything if they wait like that, but I know I will feel pretty crappy if a bunch of people don't get favours or OOT bags. Help... what are your thoughts?????
