She ordered hers from DiscountMugs.com but I ordered mine on eBay from a seller called Factory_21. She has been great to work with - she was able to put one of our monograms on our shot glasses! http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1438.l2649

 

Ok, ladies, tomorrow is 10 weeks until my wedding!

 

Here's my current to do list:

Luminiarias for tables
 
Small white frame for "in memory of" seat for Aunt Brenda
 
Ties for guys
Shoes for guys

Favors (assemble shot glasses & bags with tags)
 
Photograph list for wedding day Pick songs for video & highlight video, make CD Create music lists (ceremony, cocktail hour, finalize reception) Make ceremony music CD

    You are correct - Discount mugs! And I'm leaving 7 weeks from today!! The ones on that listing are cute! Do you have a pic of yours?

     

    My goal for the weekend is to finish the pre-trip packets. I finished the little passports last night, now I just have to put everything together.

     

    Has anyone started thinking about ceremony music? We have a steel drum player, and I guess I should start thinking about processional and recessional songs?

      Pretty exciting that we are all getting so close. We have a DJ for the reception and have a sound syetem for the ceremony. I still have to finish up my lists for all of these. Yikes. Sometimes it seems a little overwhelming. I will just keep plugging away little by little.

        FI and I are having a hard time trying to figure what song to play as we are leaving the ceremony.  We want an upbeat song but no idea which one.  Any suggestions??

         

        My first wedding dress fitting is tomorrow!!  Can't wait!

          I love "God Only Knows" for the processional and 'Landslide" for the father-daughter dance, Denielle! What sweet ideas!

           

          I need to start watching some youtube videos of steel pan drummers for some more ideas! So far, I like "Can't Help Falling in Love" for the processional and "I'm Yours" for the recessional

              How about God Only Knows by the Beach Boys. We're using it and it's peppy :)

                Whee! 80 days to my wedding April 28th

                Honestly the biggest 'stress' thing right now is the amount of my guests who have NEVER travelled before and seem to think that our flight is going to land in Florida, and they can simply walk to the cruise ship as they get off the airplane. They are freaking over "unexpected costs" (the hotel the night before, the shuttle/bus rides to and from the boat) but we're like.. seriously? In the grand scheme of things, another hundred bucks or so (so long as people bunk up in rooms or chip in on a rental car) is not much compared to what has already been paid.

                 

                The wedding stuff is getting 'lost' in my travel woes.. but I have been told by my fiancee, my mom and my future MIL to leave the travel woes to our travel agent and worry about what's important.

                 

                I can't believe I only have 80 days left and all my stuff I wanted to do (like order a custom cake topper) I haven't done! I finished paying Angel's Accents but the design part hasn't started re: my flowers.

                AWWWW, LOVE LANDSLIDE...I love the version where she says in the beginning, "This one's for you, Daddy."
