I hear you there girl.  I found this great app for that. WedHappy... it sets alerts for you and makes a calendar... it's fantastic.

I've got my shower tomorrow!!! I am so Excited!! My MOH has been really killing herself this last week prepping for it.  Her thing is that since I'm not getting the Big Party I wanted, she wants to incorporate and throw the over the top party that she thinks "I deserve".  I think this has only been more fueled the last two weeks with my disappointment over guests dropping out and have a wedding guest list of 11 people.  I'll put up some pictures of what she does for you all to see on Sunday!

I won't quote the photos again but I third option 2! How are you doing your numbers, cutting them out yourself or buying the numbers already cut?
Yes I will be cutting the numbers out of cardstock. Most likely using the same font that I used to make the wedding banners. Thanks for the input!!!

Yes!!! I got the frames from dollarama for $1!! I then spray painted them white and used a paint glaze and acrylic paint in dark grey to antique them!! It was super easy!!

I like option 2. Is it just me or does the paper have a pearlized effect to it? The frames are so cute too. 
I like option 2 as well!!!
Thanks ladies!!! I think I am gonna go with option 2. The white cardstock is slightly textured and kinda shiny. So it does look a little pearlized but not as much as in the picture, I think that's because of the flash lol

I have our sand ceremony music and recessional but I have no clue what the bridal party or I will walk out to. We only have 13 guests in the seats so it's not like I can use a normal length song for these spots. Has anyone just picked out a spot in a song they wanted played during that time frame? Would love to know what you all have planned music wise for ceremony :)

We are doing something a little non traditional... the person who is doing the ceremony is going to walk down first, then my FI, and his best man.  The final 3 in the wedding party are going to walk my mom, his mom, and his grandmother down the aisle. Since there is no front of the church for them to come out of and we don't have ushers I thought that would work best. 

 

For music the guys and moms are coming in to Somewhere over the Rainbow by IZ, my girls are walking down to A Thousand Years, piano instrumental version (SO GOOD!) and for myself, cannon in D.  On our way out, One Love, Bob Marley of course!

I'm thinking to do Beyonce "Halo" for my bridesmaids walking out (cheesy i know but i really love the lyrics, lol) and for me I want Kenny G's the wedding song. I may have a saxophonist play it live with piano accompaniment. Not 100% sure yet tho. I have a vocalist performing Halo. Do you think that is too much switching up if it goes from a live singer to a live sax???

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
