    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.
