Some Planning Stuff

I will start my post off with our gifts. ALOT of gifts! I am a gift giver! I love giving gifts! Love my pink and orange totes for my girls? =D I would love to show you what's inside, but I'm afraid you'll just have to wait til Thursday.

My Flower Girl Gift Bag

They will be wearing a tiara to match their cute dress. =D
For Our Moms
I would have loved to get them in pink, but in all honesty I don't think they'd use it. So we got one mom a white and brown one and the other mom a brown and brown one. =)

For Our Dads
I'd have to say shopping for men is harder than shopping for women! We knew we wanted to get our dad an everyday watch, but we were definetly on a budget. It took us forever to buy a watch for these two! For one, my dad has all the watches in the world and I don't know if anything can compare to his gazillion Rolex watches, so it was really hard for me to find a good everyday one. On the other hand, Ron's dad is glued to the watch he currently uses. So here they are...

For Ron's Dad:

And for my daddy..

Some other wedding stuff!

Escort Cards
Table Placement Stuff
Everything for each table was placed in a manila envelope for each table. Easier for my coordinator to place everything. =D Here you see the envelope, coloring book/crayons, place cards, and table number. What you don't see is the menu card, which I already put in. =D

The Programs
It's only a total of 3 pages!! It has ALL the readings in it too!
Behind the whole "love is..", when Ron and I first started dating he would clip out those comic strips and put it in our letters so it just stuck with us thru out the years. There are 4 different "love is" comics on our programs. =D (I didn't include one of the pages, because it had EVERYONE's name on it).

For our Money Dance
Instead of pinning the money onto us, they will place it in these "baskets" which my Jr. Bridesmaids will be holding.
The Coins
The Ring Pillow
*note to self---> Get Ron's promise ring!*
The Snack Bags which will be passed out AFTER the ceremony.

We made about 200 bags and each bag is only about $0.75 each!

The packing crew.
Moral support...haha..

This is part of the escort table where the escort cards will be placed in front of the frames. The left side are my grandparents, and parents wedding photos, and vice versa for Ron. It's a somewhat a surprise for his grandparents. =)
Pardon my wannabe fan napkin. Adult place setting
Kids place setting.

Well I'm off to pick up my dress! It got steamed. =)
