I fly to Virginia in two weeks to do my bridal shower and bachelorette with my hometown girls. I'm probably most excited for that one b/c it's the friends and family I've known my whole life.

 

So happy you had a wonderful weekend. You deserve it with all the DIY projects and thoughtfulness you've put into your wedding to make sure that your guests have a great trip. :)

That's awesome! I totally agree- mine was with my life-long friends and one new-er (3-ish years) friend. The girls were girls I gre up with since 4th grade! It's so weird that we are adults!! haha

 

Have a great time on your trip!! and be safe! :)

My FI asked me if we could have a picture of Maximus at our wedding.  Of course, I said!!  I have to think of a very special way to honor him.  

I am SO sorry!!! That's so incredibly hard. I will definitely keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers! That is so sweet that you will honor your pet on your wedding day!

    I bought a charm from this seller for my bouquet (my grandparents - one side has their wedding day picture and the other has my favorite picture of the 2 of them as I remember them), and was VERY happy with the result.

    Are you ladies bringing a card box with you? Would it be tacky not to have one? I just feel like I have enough crap wedding stuff to bring down already! lol

    I don't expect the people attending to bring gifts or cards or anything but what if they do? Would it be awful to just have them laid on a table? Or is there any kind of cheap card box I could get. Something that is flat and we can just put together quickly when we arrive?


    62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

      I am not taking a card box for the exact reasons you stated-- one I don't want to drag it there and two because I don't expect people to bring cards to the wedding. I will have one at my at home reception.

        I was thinking about asking the hotel if they had a basket that I could borrow and pretty-up with some ribbon for the cards, that way their not just thrown onto the table out in the open. I'm also putting a family member in charge of removing and putting them into a room safe before the end of the night when things tend to get blurry
