We are thrilled to just have close friends and family who wish to come and let it be done. I want to DIY but I'm so afraid but the ladies on this board are AWESOME!
yes, the ladies on this board are totally awesome, we've built such a great bond. I wanted to do diy things, but in the intrest of time, some things i just decided,wasn't worth the headache. by the time i bought alot of the materials, paper, cut, fold, make sure it right font, wording, score it,etc, i was like ohhhh heeeeeeeee...... naw. lol, but i do have a few minor diy things like stamps for my envelopes and doing other little things like labels for my tumblers. i'm doing a very very very informal ahr, will be large bbq/seafood boil, and also have jumbo tron lawn screen for us to do movies on green, just let people enjoy themselves in their own element.
