    These look FANTASTIC!!

    The flowers look real to me and I love how you put them together. Great job!

I'm worried eveything is going to look clearly like it was a DIY. I have no problem redoing it if it does, I'd rather do that and have it look perfect! I wasn't sure about the gray ribbon. But white just didn't look quite right with the ivory flowers/dress, and we couldn't find the perfect shade of ivory.

      Is anyone else beginning to feel overwhelmed? I was up until 4am last night printing my DIY programs. Now this weekend I have to put them together. I also have a couple other DIY projects I've been working on and am finding them to be more tiring than anything else. Argh! I feel like I'm forgetting something that needs to be done but of course I couldn't even begin to think what that is.

Lol then I found out my girls are getting a hotel room for my bachelorette party and she is the only one not staying. Now tonight I text everyone about getting there hair done for our reception back home. I found a friend to do it for only $30. We are having professional pics here. SIL replies back and says she will do her own. Ok I'm really annoyed because she is not invoiced with anything and not sure how to reply . She is not a hair stylist by any means. i feel like something like this is suppose to involve all the girls and having us all together. She hasn't lifted a finger to help the other girls. ....ok thank for listening lol

            Ladies I totally hear ya!!! ...I can't even begin to tell you the misery my future SIL has put me and us through....and all because she can't afford to go to the wedding. I have come to learn the hard way that unfortunately there are some people that just can not be happy for others if it's not revolving around them, or if they are just plain and simple a miserable person. Last weekend my FI had to finally cut the ties with his sister as she was causing us a lot of grief . I personally come form a very tight family and have a very large group of friends that are like family to me, so have a hard time understanding how someone that calls themselves family can act so hurtful and spiteful to another family member or choose to not even be a part of the local events they can be even if they can't financially afford to go to the wedding. Weddings can seriously bring out the worst in some people....She turned down every invite ...even Christmas dinner at our house, my shower, the Jack & Jill, etc...and we haven't even had words with her!!!! LOL...she basically found out we were going away for our wedding and had it out with my FI about how this cant be what he wants, iots all MY doing (which is finny cause he was all over the destination more so then me!) and went on about how nice and great it is for my family cause we're obviously rich and can afford it (my family is far from rich) etc etc etc... Andrew stood up for himself obviously and just staed the facts, never said anything negative (he's so not confrontational lol) and then we never heard from her again....just stopped talkign to us, and used everybody else like his Mom and other siblings and FB statuses to make sure we knew how she felt about it. She went as far as to delete us from BBM, and then deleted only ME last week from FB, yet kept Andrew. So Andrew sent her a message, deleted her and said enough is enough you aren't going to treat my soon to be wife like this, it costs no money to support us in this marriage, and no money to just be kind and respectful ...and said we dont need to hear from you again unless you have something positive to say.  Do you know she had the nerve to say that she deleted me from FB because of all the posts people were putting on my FB wall about my wedding and because my statsus about how I was excited that we were only 6 weeks away from being married...She said I was rubbing it in that she couldnt go!!! OMG is she for real???!!! If you guys only knew me well enough , you would all find that completely laughable because if there is one thing Im not is that kind of person. I realize now that there is no way that we can do anything to help her or make it better, people that are hell bent on being miserable will always dwell ont he negative, they will always be the poor victim and you the evil people that dare to be happy in your life, and so i have now put it behind me. We have such a strong support system of other family and friends....it really is the one time you get to make this all about you ladies!!!! So enjoy, do yourself the favor and know that those that honestly dont want to share in your excitement or cant be happy for you are really off better at home ...and maybe even out of your life.Positive people and positive vibes only :)

                  I did the same thing. Broke out our remaining "to dos" and put them in a list with a "due by" date for each week. I assigned certain stuff to myself, certain stuff to my FI, and the other just for either. It's really helped because instead of looking at everything that needs to be done, you can just take it section by section.

                      LOL tell me about it. I say thank god for my family cause they are so supportive, especially my parents and my brothers who are honestly like my best friends :)  It makes it hard though cause I had hoped for so much more with my future in-laws. (Hell my ex's Mom and sister sent Andrew & I engagement cards and wedding gifts!!!!! They weren't even invited to our wedding and I havent dated my ex in over 14 years!!!!!!! ...) LOL I speak to them maybe once a year via email at Christmas--but I've always had great relationships with the families of anyone that I dated...including Andrew's ...up until we announced we were getting married away. What is it about weddings that makes people feel that they are entitled to telling you how to live your life? Hello people, I respect those who can't come to the wedding and those who just choose not to, I'm ok with it cause I am not here to tell anyone how to spend their hard earned money, or what priorities they should have in life, ....but honestly respect and extend the same courtesy to us. Sheesh. LOL
