    haha thanks krista... i havent really done anything in the last two days except send out the packages to my BMs. i have to get my ass in gear and send the entire ceremony to our priest tonight so he can approve it so if i need to make any changes to the programs i can do that before saturday because i plan to go to my dad's on saturday to print them off his printer since i broke mine.

    oh we did finally get 95% of our seating chart done yesterday. but we couldnt agree on where to put a few people so we created a "fantasy table" LOL so hopefully my MIL will just add an extra table and place those people at it.

    how's everyone else going?

    oh not sure i mentioned this before, but we ended up adding food (crudites, dips, chips, etc) to our cocktail hour, so we cut out the hot appetizer we were going to do for the seated meal. instead now when the guests are seated after the cocktail hour, the first course they'll be served is salad.

    i am still waiting for the mini organza bags to arrive from oriental trading, i think they are scheduled to arrive on the 25th but i will track the package later today to see. i'll probably go to papersource today after work to pick up the cardstock that i need to use to make my TY tags for the favor bags and maybe print those at my dad's on saturday too.

      I think adding the food to the cocktail hour was a good idea. We are doing the same thing. What salad did you pick? We went with the goat cheese cherry tomatoes etc..one.

      one more question for Westin brides: did you do speeches during dinner or after?

      PS: I like the "fantasy" table haha

      we chose the same salad as you did.

      jesus, i have not even thought about speeches. i for sure dont want to do any, but i am sure they will happen anyway. i get too nervous talking in front of that many people.

      we ended up adding another guest to the fantasy table so now it's a real table haha. table 9.

      funny thing - i was talking with one of my sources on the phone at work just now, and she asked where my wedding was and i told her in los cabos, she said oh thats funny, i was just there, i stayed at the westin and i saw two beautiful weddings on the beach! i was like, im getting married there! haha so she was telling me all about everything there and how much she loved it. and how totally worth it the royal beach club is because the breakfast is not a continental breakfast, but rather a huge breakfast buffet, so if nothing else you get your money's worth the room from that. and then when you add in the cocktail hour (which is actually 3 hours in the rbc lounge) you get more than your money's worth. so i am so psyched that we wont have to pay for breakfast a single day we are there, and that we got the room upgrade to RBC just for having fulfilled our room block. woo! i am getting soooo excited. we leave in about 11.5 days!
