    Thank you. I think she'll love it.

     

    I got it from Etsy seller Yourpicturestory. They have a variety of storyboards to choose from or you can design your own.

      Don't let the low guest count upset you. We're having just 15 adults at our wedding (including us), and 9 of us will be standing (couple, bridesmaids, friend officiating), so there will be just 8 people sitting (2 kids & 6 adults). Although bummed that some of the people we invited can't make it, I'm really happy we're having such an tight-knit affair. It means only our absolute closest friends are going to be a part of the most intimate day of our lives. These are the people whose friendships play important roles in our relationship. It feels like everyone there is part of it, you know?

       

      We're planning a really easygoing reception, just friends dancing and having fun. No special games or tricks necessary when you have a lively crowd to begin with; our friends love to party! I think when you have guests who like to dance and good music, things fall into place on their own.

       

      If you're really set on adding to the normal stuff, you could set up a photo station with fun props. With a small crowd, you'd probably get some nice group shots.

        Less than 2 months to go! I'm getting so nervous! Not about getting married, but about paying off all the balances with vendors (right after taxes are due - yikes!) and leaving my dogs with a sitter while we're gone (something has always gone wrong with them when we've vacationed in the past, so it's nerve-racking). I'm also nervous about people in the wedding who STILL do not have passports - the procrastinators are scaring me!

         

        I still have some major DIY projects to complete, and I haven't had time to make a final to-do list, so I'm just feeling really scattered. Thinking about how soon this is all going to happen is starting to scare me. I'm sure others are in the same boat, but wow! 

         

        My best friend is getting married in September, and I'm the maid of honor, so no rest for me even after we return home from Mexico! 

         

        How is everyone staying sane with everything on the horizon?

          You're preaching to the choir! I have a lot to do still, nothing too major but still a lot of little things. I feel your pain on the money worries and the no rest, I just planned my sister's baby shower and my best friends bachelorette party, then we had her wedding last weekend, this was all in the same month span. I am just glad it's all over and I can focus on the wedding finally!!

            My gosh i totally feel ya!!! Only about 6 weeks to go!!! Still so much to do I haven't even started dress fittings yet!! I have ALOT of DIY left to do and on top of everything else me and my fianc© are moving to Ontario directly after the wedding. He already has a job there and has been there for the past 3 weeks, he home this week but leaves again on the 18th and won't be back till April 16th!!!!! So on top of all the wedding g stuff I have to do I also have to pack up our apartment so that after the wedding we move out.

              Yikes!  I'm so happy for my best friend, but I'm glad my own wedding is coming first, considering how close the weddings are to one another. I'm thrilled to help her with wedding planning, but I would not want all the big tasks like her bachelorette night to be my focus right now. Kudos to you for managing that (and your sister's baby shower, wow)!

                Holy crap!  If I had to move after the wedding, I would be going absolutely crazy!  Wow!  Time to start bribing friends to help with all the packing!

                 

                Your dress fittings should go fine if you start them asap.  There were several mishaps with my dress, and it's currently in the mail on its way to me after being repaired. (I bought a floor sample of a discontinued style from a shop in another state, and it was not exactly in perfect condition when I received it.)  I am pretty sure it won't need any alterations (fingers crossed!), but I'll feel a lot better when I have my dress in hand!

                    I'm OCD, and sitting down and making lists always seems to calm my nerves. Being able to see it all on paper helps ease my brain a bit. Once the 11th hit it was a "holy crap it's in two months" type of thing. I just had my shower Saturday, and my first alterations appointment on the 11th, so that was a reality check. We kept putting things off thinking there was time, but I told my FI we are buckling down on that list this weekend. I'd rather scramble now and be able to relax later than vice versa. Plus once we start having to get a packing list together, that'll be a whole other animal!

                     

                    Cherany, I feel you the dogs. We have 2 Cairn's and the longest we've lest them was to go to Toronto in October (when we got engaged). We were only gone 5 days and my dad stayed with them. This time it'll be 10 days and a family friend. Scary!

                      Ya I'm not too worried about the fittings I just keep puting it off in hopes of losing a couple more pounds. My dress is from the same shop that my maid of honor bout her dress when she got married. She only had a 5 month engagement and her dress came in 1 week before her wedding and her alterations went fine so I'm thinking if I start beginning of April I should definately be ok. Sorry to hear about your dress!! That really sucks but at least it is being repaired
