The guests with deposits down will get everything but $45 back. We are still trying to take in all this luck!!!

    Congrats, that's so exciting! Can't wait to see how your dream wedding turns out for you!

    Your Song - elton john

    harvest moon - neil young

    crazy love - van morrison

    whistle for the choir - the fratellis

    offering - the avett brothers

    forever young - either bob dylan or the band version (this would obviously be father/daughter mother/son dance)

    thousand years - christina perri ( i hate twilight but love this song so its been a love/hate relationship lol )

    unchained melody - probably willie nelson version

    indian summer - the doors

    Those are all great choices! One thing that helped us was sitting down and listening to all of the songs we were considering. As Time Goes By made us want to stand up and dance together, which we did! It was just a gut feeling. Hopefully one of those songs does that for you two.

      What is everyone doing for gifts for parents?  I was thinking of a private dinner for each couple at our resort, but I don't know!  I'm finding this hard!

        I was thinking about this too...our parents are not hosting the wedding,  or paying, so I am not sure this tradition would apply to us?

          Good question! My FI bought personalized cuff links for our dads and I'm in charge of the moms. I think earrings for mine, and a pandora charm for his. We also might take care of an excursion for them, but that's all depending on budget, so we'll know closer to then....so hard!!

            I went back and forth on this one. I wanted to do something out of the norm. My parents are paying for the entire wedding so I wanted to do something tailored to them. I purchased them a romance package weekend stay (champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, dinner, breakfast, etc) at a lake resort/spa that's about two hours from their house. They're actually going this weekend. When I told them that this was my gift to them to say 'thanks for giving me the wedding of my dreams' they both were happily surprised. I'm also going to write individual letters and put them inside greeting cards and give them to my mom and dad on the actual wedding day. :)

              So for a minute there I was worried we might have approximately 10 guests but I am super happy today because apparently all our friends and family are procrastinators (like us!) and we now have 24! Just had to share my excitement!!! :)

                Both of Mark's parents and my dad are deceased so for parents it will just be my mom at our wedding. This is what we decided to get for her. Most of the text will be the same but I change it just a bit:

                 

                Today a bride,

                tomorrow a wife,

                forever your daughter

                best friends for life.

                 

                We're going to put a pic of me when I was little in the horizontal frame and one of our engagement pics in the vertical frame and give it to her at the Rehearsal Dinner the night before the wedding. Then after the wedding we'll give her one of the wedding photos.

                  I love the frame! Where did you get it if you don't mind me asking?
