    Happy New Year!  I just finished watching the badgers lose the Rose Bowl...Ugh!

     

    I wish our wedding was that close!  It's crunch time for you:)  How much do you have left to do?

        Oh, I have so much to do, lol. When we were in 2010 it just seemed like the wedding was so far away; now we're officially in 2011 & I'm wondering where the time went! I have to:

        • Make my bridal bouquets & bridesmaid bouquets
        • Make Mom's corsage
        • Make boutonnieres
        • Order/decorate fans
        • Make bridal & bridesmaid hair clip
        • Make birdcage veil
        • Make reception dress
        • Make door hangers
        • Order OOT bags
        • Make hangover/first aid kits
        • Make "Before you leave pkgs"
        • Make luggage tags
        • Decorate cake server set
        • Decorate bride & groom champagne glasses
        • Decorate paper lanterns
        • Find plastic apothecary jars for candy buffet

         

        And I know there's a million more things, but I don't want to think about it, lol!

              Hello Ladies!!!!

               

              @acireta ~ Du Page County in the house!

               

              What a fun thread! My name is Jen and I live in Lombard, IL. Jason and I were engaged on December 27, 2010. We will be together 11 years this March and have known each other since 1992. I am thrilled to be getting married!!! I am frantically doing research about destination weddings. I love this website. I am really focused on OOT gift bags. We are days away from sending out 88 invites. Eesh! we will see what happens....

                I've just read so many reviews on how the smallest things didn't turn out right and it made them freak out the day of their wedding, but they would also say their wedding was perfect.  So... my plan is to not to be involved in any of the setup the day of the wedding and just let it happen.  My mom is taking the lead! LOL  I didn't want her to, so she can relax on my day, but she wants to.  Just aiming for the No Worries!

                  I did that for my mom when she got married in 09, so she better repay the favor. Isn't that what moms are for?!

                    @Beachbridein11:

                     

                    Welcome, Beach Bride!

                     

                    I say, let your mom run with it:)  I think getting into the island mantra ("No worries") is the way to go!  Have you had a chance to look up all the fun Jamaican proverbs yet?  Some of them are hilarious!  What a fun and beautiful place to get married...

                     

                    @bigredchibride

                     

                    Jen, Congrats on your engagement!  Tell us a little more about your wedding and post a pic of your invites.  I am brainstorming on STD's, invites and OOT bags right now...

                     

                    @Queendiva

                     

                    OK!  Your are obviously so much more crafty than I am!  I like to pretend that I am accomplished at DIY, but honestly have my doubts that most of my projects are going to turn out the way I want.  Post pics!  I love looking at other people's handywork.

                      Lol, I'm sure I will be posting many pics as I go along! Yeah, I've been really focused on OOT bags too, lately. I've just ordered a few things to start getting them together, but still need to order the bags.
