One candle per bag and I ordered the stickers offered on the website--just picked a style that had palm trees. The sticker size is 1.375 inch circles.

Update:

I still have a ton to do and am so scatter brain right now and sick but I thought I'd update my one huge done item: I'm married! Tim and I had our legal wedding last Friday. It feels great to have that done, that is all we really need to head down to Mexico to have our wedding, everything else is just extra. Tomorrow, I will go pick up my dress and have that done too. And Tim has his outfit as well, including a very handsome blue flowered tie.

Yay! Congrats!! I can't wait until we're legally married.

 

I am just now working on my invites (well, I was until I got on the forum), but they're technically for our AHR June 6. I also have to make our guest book and also the welcome books for the guests at the resort. I think there's a bunch more to do, but I can't think of it right now. I'm on the forum, not working on wedding stuff!

Oh, and write vows, and pick (and download) all the music for the reception and buy and iPod and speakers for the reception. I'm doing a DIY hair trial with my stylist sometime in the next few weeks. I need to find a hair flower and buy clothes for the honeymoon, find wedding jewelry and shoes, buy a wedding band or a new setting.

 

We do have our OOT bags done, and my dress and Isaac's suit are hanging up ready to go, and everything is set for the resort.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
