Checks/sh1t's getting real!

About 15 of our guests booked their flights/hotels in the last 24 hours due to a fare sale on Southwest and one of Delta's competitors (Sun Country).  We're expecting around 35-40 people... so that's a huge chunk!  It's getting real now!

I got my card box from Amazon.com over the weekend, as well as my "BRIDE" iron-on crystals from etsy.  :)

I purchased some frames from IKEA today to use for table numbers, a "card" sign, and our "Mr. and Mrs." sign (sweetheart table).  The frames are only $2 each, so I figured it's about the same as buying table numbers.

I also got some new shoes to wear for the bachelor/ette party :D  Yes, I still need shoes for the ceremony, but that's a minor detail.  ;)  I tried some on today, but I can't take the plunge yet since they're rather spendy.

We're under 100 days!  Holy hannah!!!

    I know; we have some friends that want to come out with us in March but the tickets are just getting worse and no one wants to spend $500 on a round trip.  :(

    I know it has been crazy!  I actually saw flights for $280 non stop awhile ago and was mad at my family for not booking then (since I'm ALWAYS the one that has too keep an eye on it)  anyways I checked last night after seeing this and they are again back down to $280!!!  So again another phone call to my parents and I'm still not sure if either of them booked... I mean seriuosly yesterday morning flights were $380 and that was with a layover!  Just wish they'd book and take some stress off of me :/

    WOOOHOOO That is awesome!!!

    *This is just opinion - I don't work for Southwest/Chase or get paid to promote them*

    This deal is on their main page.  If you sign up for the Chase Southwest Card and make 1 purchase (no set dollar amount), you will get 50,000 points, which equals 2 plane tickets.  There is a 99.00 annual fee...but 99.00 for 2 plane tickets...that's a bargain to me.  There is a 5.00 additional ticketing fee per ticket, but still 109 is a bargain.  Quite a few of our guests have gotten this deal.  I recommend it to anyone who might fly Southwest.

    Hey-o!  YAY for invites!!  Here's the cardbox I got (per someone on the DIY board):

    <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Martha-Stewart-Gift-White-Eyelet/dp/B0045HPFMC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328551999&sr=8-1" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.com/Martha-Stewart-Gift-White-Eyelet/dp/B0045HPFMC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328551999&sr=8-1</a>

    I'm gunna slap a purple ribbon on it and call it a day.  It comes folded up in a box that's about 11"x11", and about 2-3" tall.  Super slick for throwing in the suitcase :)  Honestly?  I didn't care about my cardbox at all, so this is just fine for me.

    The fare sale was actually only on Monday or Tuesday.  All the flights on Sun Country were $274 (?) RT, non stop, so a bunch of my MSP peeps booked flights.  I checked last night and they were back to $329.  Dumb.  It's also cheapest if you leave on Monday, so that's what many people are doing.  I'm not sure about Southwest - I just had a friend tell me she got a good deal!

    We booked on Southwest for that weekend too & got a great price!  The prices flying out of Canada were nuts so we're driving to Buffalo and flying from there.  Actually we booked through Jackpot vacations with Southwest - got a great price for the flight & hotel combo & 2 show tickets to boot!

    A bunch of our guests booked too - and some are even on the same flight as us - I'm getting soooo excited!

    Congrats on the checks!! Time is flying!!
