June 2013 brides- what are you doing?

Recommended Posts

Have you ladies chosen the readings for your ceremony?  Please share!

 

I found this one.. short and sweet but I haven't decided yet:

 

"Rain fell today
and somewhere lotus flowers are blossoming,
So are we.
Defying the impossible
in the shelter and warmth of each other's hearts,
extending the night, caressing the stars,
And knowing each other's hearts
is our human bliss"

Well I've started packing! I've completely packed the wedding bag and was successful in my goal of ONE bag for wedding supplies and welcome bag items! When we began planning I really didn't want to do the welcome bag thing. I didn't want to be bothered dragging everything down but as time went on, I thought that was selfish and I could at least do something for my guest. We originally expected around 40 guest, not 62 so as more people booked, we realized we had to keep the welcome bags a bit more simple. There were a few things I really wanted to add, but I didn't because it would have been WAY to many things to bring to MX. So anyways, we kept the welcome bags simple, as well as the wedding decor. We really wanted to fit everything into one checked luggage bag that weighs below the 50lbs weight limit... and it weighs 44lbs! Whooohoo! 

 

I've also started packing my own bag. I've been throwing things in there that I think of throughout the day and I've packed a few things that won't wrinkle. Everything else is pretty much laid out in a room ready to be placed in the bag! 

 

My FI hasn't touched his bag yet, that's just how he (and probably most guys) is. I'm sure he'll pack the night before we leave!

 

So is anyone coming up this weekend? There's too many pages here to go through everyone's dates! We should have made a page with everyone's dates listed in order! 

If not, I think me and a few others are coming up next weekend!! Eeeeekkkkkkk!!! We fly in on Wednesday, the 12th.... Anyone else? I'll look for you at the airport!! cheer2.gif

I have to share my cake topper! They just finished it and I am in love. Its a little joke cause for over 10 years now everyone from back home calls my FI Travadactyl and he calls me babe-a-la-sauras. So I just think this is the sweetest!  Getting excited! I leave next week! But havent started packing yet! You ladies are making me think i better start soon though!

Too funny and I love it!  All of my friends call my fiance, Terry, Teradactyl, I wish I had thought to do something like this for the topper, its a great idea!!

 

I leave in about 2.5 weeks and am not even close to starting packing yet...I don't even know what I'm doing for placecards yet and still need to find jewelery for my girls.  I did pick up my marraige license today and get a list of local justices of the peace so am going to make some calls tomorrow and try to lock someone down for the week a night or two before we leave to get that done with!
