I still have to put a down payment for the photographer, look for a dress, think about decorations.... welcome gifts.... ahh soo much work ahead

    wow, you got the invites already made? I am just finishing up my StD! We have our venue but no room block yet ... waiting to hear back from them. I;ve been dress shopping twice so far and two more stores this weekend ... and I've phone-interviewed a bunch of photographers so now we have to pick one!! Def have to start thinking about decorations, flowers etc ...

                  I hate my last name. Not that my fiance's is any better really but I'll take it in a heart beat. Can't wait to make it officially my last name lol

                      The note that I included - it's double sided so each box got one card.

                       

                      In the box they went. . . 

                       

                       

                      Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap

                       

                       

                      Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping.

                       

                       

                      Finally, I taped on the address labels : )

                       

                       

                       

                      (btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one )

                       

                       

                      You are killing me....I feel like we are soooo not crafty after looking at these! (Actually I'm NOT crafty! LOL) These are amazing and your guests will love them!
