Checks

In the past week:

FI's ring arrived from tungstenaffinity.com - freaking fast!  I ordered on Friday, got it the next day!  :)  FI' happy with it so so am I. 

Tested the favors over the weekend to see if they would work and it does!  Gotta order the muslin bags for the tea and will see if nearby BM can come by to help putting them together. 

Received our marriage license in the mail from Snohomish County - I think it only took them a week to get it out although they do say to allow 30 days.

And we're chugging along finalizing the guest count since so many never sent their stuff in.  Seriously, for those who are still doing their invites, I suggest NOT putting on a stamp as per Emily Post.  We likely won't receive half of them back.  Thank goodness for Facebook though!  And an interesting trend with our group of guests is we have a lot who are coming sans date/guest.  Something that's surprising us, in a good way of course, but we just wern't expecting it.

    YAY for finally getting a head count!! And thats awesome that the ring came so fast!!

    I dont get the whole Emily Post thing on not putting stamps on. Is it that she just sees it as a waste of money? Because I just got an invitation in the mail on Saturday to a wedding, and they didnt put a stamp on the RSVP envelope, and I was irritated that it didnt have one (especially since I spent the time doing all of ours), and just thought it was inconvenient. Granted, I have a TON of stamps hanging around because of all this wedding stuff, but still.

    I think I was mostly irritated that I got an invitation in the mail 3+month before the wedding, with a RSVP date that is for 2+ months before the wedding (heck, its even before our RSVP date, which is a month sooner!!). AND, i was especially irritated because they put just our first names on the envelope, and not even an & between the names, the label was printed with "jamers22-fi" and they spelled FI's name wrong (well, typed too fast and switched the "V" and "I" around)... come on, we used to be best friends. it's not that hard!

    sorry, rant over. :)

    Jamers - from what I recall, it wasn't that she (rather her granddaugther) frowned upon it, just that it's unncessary.  If a guest will attend, then they have the obligation to find a 44 cent postage stamp to send back the response card with.

    Sara - we thought we had to get it from the county we're getting married in, but I didn't want to have to drive up to Snoho county on a M-F 9-5 timeframe, so we mailed ours.  They said on their site if it's sent via mail to do so at least 30 days prior to the wedding to allow time for it to arrive, process, and be mailed back.

    Hooray! Marriage license! You are practically official!

    I am like a falling star who has finally found her place next to another in a lovely constellation, where we will sparkle in the heavens forever
