My mom thought of this, but we couldn't find it at the time and leave it up to Paper-Source to read my mind. I wanted to use little stamps of animals to designate meal choices for the wait staff to know what to serve my guests. It would have been a lot cuter and more 'me' than stickers that said 'lamb' and 'fish'...I don't know how this would work for all cultures as they don't include lamb/goat, BUT that's for another day. Check out the link to purchase and see scale, etc.

While I LOVED my gown. I always had a 'crush' on this one by Eden Bridals. It's so glamourous and potentially convertible to a short gown. This would make for a great city wedding or even an upscale suburban one. It's very last year (or even the year before) but who really cares, if you look good in a dress, it doesn't matter when they designed it...unless of course you're a slave to fasion in which case I think you have bigger problems.

The rest of yesterday got busy and now a total blur of friends, family, music, food and more music. Pics coming soon. Lessons learned... take a bouquet meant to cascade out of water upon delivery. Other than that not much went wrong. We are heading to brunch to open presents and hang out with our guests.

I was working on the escort card displays with Matron of Honor and she had a few pairs of shoes to run by me. This was one of them and immediately fell in love (not like I love Groom, but you know what I mean). They will match my something borrowed - a broach to cover my bustle pin up spot along with the necklace I'm turning into a hair ornament.

I love Paper Source....I love Paper Source....I love Paper Source. Of course they'd roll out a whole India Collection 11 days before the wedding. There's even a Rajastani paisley print that would have been PERFECT for our big day.
- Memory Locket
- Escort Cards
- Ceremony Programs (Thank goodness for Kinko's and Adobe InDesign)
- Wedding Day/weekend Timeline tweaking....Special Thanks to Luci for spending A LOT of time on this project with us.
- Final Meeting with the Venue on Sunday!!!
- Politely explaining to friends why we're not encouraging non relationshippy date bringing
- Sanely attempting to arrange tables so that all the screamers (read small children under 5) are in the same spot, far and away from the sweetheart table, bar and speakers.

Just for fun. Here's what my blog says about me. Try it out and let me know what it says your's says about you!
ESTP - The Doers
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
