    Dealing with pets and the wedding/honeymoon is tough. My family and I have three cats and every time I try and bring up wedding talk the first question out of my mom's mouth is who's going to take after the cats. Sigh, another to go on the to-do list! lol

    I'm totally in agreement with you on the battery operated candles. I'm probably going to be on the lookout for those myself in the near future. Where did you manage to find yours, if you don't mind me asking? :goodvibes

    I found these at Joann'a Fabrics...brand name is inglow. Not sure if you have them where you are. They are $4.99 for 2. But they do have them at walmart online for 12 for $30. Only problem with those is they are ivory and not white. We can't use the ivory ones cause our overlays for the tables are white and I'm afraid that it will be noticeable. They are like rounded and that's why I love. I'll post picture and walmart link tonight for you if you can't find. :) :) :)

    Thanks for the link! They looks exactly like what I'm looking for. I may just try going to a couple Walmarts to see if I can find them in person. :goodvibes

    Okay this morning I woke up and said I need to work on wedding stuff.... well Im still working on it... LONG DAY.

    We ordered some more things this weekend. We ordered our gift card holder, we ordered our custom unity candles from a seller on Etsy - she is also making our memorial candle as well, I ordered a Mrs. Hart wedding dress hanger, we ordered our aisle runner, some stuff for the welcome bags, and Jeff ordered a iron on transfer for a shirt for the honeymoon. He also has 7 more shirts to order for himself. I will post pictures of the things we ordered as soon as they come in!

    Today I did our welcome bag folder informative pages. I made printed packets on pretty gray and white granite colored paper on all of the following info below and put it inside gray folders, and made monogram to put on the front with a large label. They look really nice, but I ran out of paper. I bought 500 sheets and Im only making 20 welcome bags. I really wanted to just make a newsletter, but I was intimidated about making one and didnt feel it would hole enough information for me. I will post a picture after I buy more paper tomorrow and continue printing and have one completely finished. If anyone wants the pages that I made into packets, Id be more than happy to email them to you. Making these folders turned a little more expensive than I wanted to do, but I think the guests will have all their questions answered. :)

    We are also the proud owner of 15,000 1 carat clear crystals and 200 3/4 inch clear crystals for the tables! I bought them off Ebay from a company in China that has 99.8% positive reviews for $47.00!

    I also made an email newsletter to send out with Jeff's help. We still have about 3/4 of our guests that have not sent back RSVP's.... and the deadline is in 10 days... I told my mom if they cant remember to send back their RSVP to me, or let me know by email or phone if they are coming by the begining of November... Im not tracking them down... I mean come on people!! :thumbsup2

    I cant believe how close its getting! Im getting very stressed out. :crazy2:

    Wow, so productive. And sorry for the frustration about your guests not responding...90% of my guests had not responded by the due date, so I know what you're going through. It's so rude and I just don't understand what is so hard about checking a box and sending in the already addressed and stamped envelope?!?! I finally had to send an email and even then some did not respond!

    It's all coming together!!! Little by little, all those TO DO items will be gone! Greatest advice a friend gave me before I got hitched...

    A few days before the big day, book a nice massage for yourself. Give fiance the cell phone and take no calls for a good chunk of the day. It helped me relax and get more centered. At some point, you will have nearly done it ALL. It's time to focus on you! :thumbsup2

    Okay so I was looking for some one that could re-create the Times Guide for me to put in the guests welcome bags. Well there is a guy by the name of dumbwaiterboy on disboards and he is amazing! He used to be a wedding planner for years - so hit him up if you need some designs done! I love how they came out, and when I said I wanted to not put the same design in everyones folders, He create 6 different themes for me. Here they are below.

    Here are a few pictures of our welcome bag folders. I was going to take a pic of every page but there is 55 pages per folder. I went a little crazy with these welcome bag folders. But I think it will help guests know any possible info about Disney that they would need.

    I love your time guides! It's so cool that they have different images and quotes. It's a very nice touch. Your welcome folders are super impressive - 55 pages! I think I may have shouted something out loud when I read that. Wow!

    WOW, those Times Guides are awesome. I started to create one on my own, but I'm going to contact him. Everything you've pulled together sounds amazing and yes, that is alot of crystals, but it will sure sparkle!! I love the bling too. Your welcome folder is awesome and great information for your guests.

    How is Jeff's grandma? Sending some more pixie dust your way.

    Any pics of your dress yet?

    I am extremely late to the party, but want to say congratulations and wishing you well on everything! You seem super organized by the whole thing and I imagine the time flew for you. I read thorugh all the pages and am going to be subscribing to this thread. I am also sending prayers to your fiance's grandmother and hope she is doing well.
