    I'm a procrastinator. Anyone who knows me knows I work best under pressure... but I'm seriously sucking up this wedding thing!!! I have less than a month, no cake topper, no cool thing to take pics of our rings in, no shoes, and no jewelry! And FI doesn't have a tie - which sounds like it shouldn't be a big deal, but he's 6'7" and needs an extra long tie. I've been working on this for 6 months, and the only DIY I actually finished was my invites! I am almost done with my fans, have materials for OOT bags, but nothing is done and I'm totally freaking!

      What can we help you with? Give us some "missions" and we'll help you! Do you want the Philly girls to have a DIY get-together?

              For the ring, I always thought the pics of a white pencil starfish stuck in the sand with the rings is pretty. i wanted to do that but forgot to buy one! you can get them at any craft store. They also sell them at Walmart. You can buy really pretty large shells at both places as well.

                    Thanks for all the offers for help :) I'm still freaking, though a tad bit less. I finally (almost) got my flowers sorted out, I did the iron transfers for my OOT bags, and I ordered 3 pairs of shoes - and will likely return 2. Tie is still up in the air, and Sam had his tux fitting today and was NOT happy. I didn't get to see yet, but I'll add it to the list of reasons to freak. I've given up on the cake topper, and plan to go to the mall after x-mas and buy jewelry - whether it is department store or swarovski, or whatever. I had gone a few weeks ago and found some things at swarovski that would work, so it'll be ok - just more expensive. I'm pulling it together, and have 6 days off after x-mas, so it will get sorted out. I would take the Philly ladies (and everyone else) up on help, though I really don't know what I need help with! Can you make people work during the holiday and get me the things I want by mid January J/K
