Purchased a tiara for Chloe our Flowergirl - excited to see it on her! She's going to be very cute!
We are going to buy shawls for the bridesmaids to wear in case it's chilly on Lake Michigan in early October. haha. As long as it doesn't rain!
Andrea, my bridesmaid - kindly agreed to format our itineraries for the wedding party! They turned out great and so fun! And the best part is at the end of the night - DANCING!
Amber, my matron of honor also kindly agreed to format our Info Sheets for our OOT bags and she did an awesome job too!
I am so thankful for them!!!
I flew back to Michigan last week to get some wedding "to-dos" done. One was make our OOT (out of town) bags for guests staying at the hotels we had room blocks reserved. So Janie (maid of honor) and I headed to Target and got some goodies including bottled water, granola bars, fruit strips, goldfish & candies. She helped me stuff and beautify. We also put labels on our chinese "takeout" boxes for our "favors". I couldn't have done it without her.. well I could have but it would have taken twice as long.
I then proceeded to wrap all the wedding party gifts so they'd be done when we fly back to Michigan for the WEDDING in a couple weeks.
My bridesmaid Lynn, who lives up in Tallahassee Florida, came to visit me after she took the Bar at the end of July. She helped me welcome August in our lives and start the 2 month countdown. We had a fun night of drinks and randomness at Bar Louie, the end of a golf tournament and at Beef O Bradys. She also came with me to pick up my bridesmaid dress for Bri's wedding and thank god it zipped! I was very glad to have her with me - I never have friends around! We also went to Michaels and talked about some craft projects - which I thought I was going to do, but now I don't think I have time... :( But Lynn offered to make our programs and I'm so excited to see the final product! She has this Gocco machine that I'm not even going to try and describe because I have no idea - but I know it produces some cool things. I'm very thankful for her to do them for us!
