  • Boo...knew about this already, but doesn't change the fact that we're leaving on a 9 a.m flight the next morning to go to...well, I don't know where yet, because it's a surprise, but still . But, in other news, 43 days to go!!
  • 3 Flower Girls (ages 5, 7, and 9): cute little coin purses from Target (a strawberry, a butterfly, and a pink circle with a blue star) with a "pearl" bracelet and 2 Lip Smackers inside (I *might* have kept 2 LS's for myself since you can't divide 8 …
  • We're doing engraved picture frames from Pottery Barn. We'll put in formal pics that get taken at the wedding, but for now it's  just the frames. They say, "Thanks to you, we do!" Cute, huh? His idea
  • In Response to Re: Verbal RSVPs: [QUOTE] At this point, I have given up on people sending back their cards, and now, really anything counts.  It still amazes me that people can not fill out a card and send it back! Posted by jgleespen[/QUOTE] M…
  • Mine's simple but hopefully he'll like it: his favorite cologne (Hugo Boss) that he ran out of around Christmas time. I love it too and have missed it--looking forward to smelling that deliciousness on our wedding day .
  • @vitacosmopolita: Our cake is lavender with lemon curd AND raspberry filling (she does 4 layers of cake and 3 of filling...YUM!). Buttercream icing, of course, though her fondant was among the least-yucky I've had. Don't have a pic but it will be si…
  • In Response to Re: What songs did you choose for your ceremony?: [QUOTE]So far, we've decided on "A Page is Turned" by Bebo Norman, "Love Is Not A Fight" by Warren Barfield, "Love Never Fails" by Brandon Heath, and "When I Say I Do" by Matthew West…
  • Dear Grad School,    You suck. I realize it was my own decision to get married halfway through the semester, but seriously, don't you realize how much I have left to do? Please consider lightening my work load. I promise to work reallyreally hard af…
  • We're both virgins and waiting! One of the most difficult things EVER, in my opinion... But I'm glad to know we're not the only ones, because sometimes it feels that way. Seventeen days to go! Hope it lives up to the hype...just kidding, I have no d…
  • We're using the Cake Lady too...we tried the cakes at Aggie's first and let me just say that the Cake Lady is like in a world of her own. INCREDIBLE! And I don't even like cake that much, so it had to be good. However, we're on a budget, and our cak…
  • Chocolate covered espresso beans from Alterra Coffee. We had our first date there . And it's something local and special!

  • We're having ours at the Hilton Milwaukee River (in Whitefish Bay). The food/drink minimum is very reasonable (or they will waive it sometimes) and there is no extra rental fee for the room, and Karen, the contact person, is fantastic! She really kn…
  • Yay! Glad to hear you loved the Hilton Milwaukee River, because I'm having my reception there on 3-13-10! We're really excited and have really good impressions of it so far, but it's always nice to hear good reviews of someone who's gone before . Th…
  • Thanks so much! Great advice! I'll let you know what I decided
  • I'm getting married March 13th, but my birthday is the 21st! It will be the last day of our honeymoon
  • I'm also in grad school...tonight I took my last pre-wedding midterm, and as soon as I walked out of the room it was like a switch flipped in my brain. I am now TOTALLY in wedding mode (before there was still about 4% of my brain devoted to academia…
  • We're using the Sendiks on 124th & North Ave...from what I hear, they do great work, and the price they gave us was very reasonable (less than $500 for my bouquet, 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, 2 moms, 2 dads, etc.). Don't be afraid to use a groce…
  • Jadon Good! He's an up-and-comer and has a really creative eye, in my opinion. He's not doing our wedding (a close OOT friend is), but he did some engagement shots for us and we were big fans . He's got a really fun style--check him out! Not sure on…
  • I'm having a lingerie shower/bachelorette combo thing too--can't wait!! And no, my mother will NOT be invited to that one
  • We're having our reception at the Hilton Milwaukee River (in Whitefish Bay) on March 13. The room seats 150 max and we're paying 18.95/person for each of 2 entree choices. Sounds like it might fit what you're looking for! Although I don't know if th…
  • Old: Not sure yet, but my mom told me she has something for me that's old and it isn't something you wear. She's going to give it to me the morning of the wedding...and you can imagine how the wheels in my head have been turning! What could it be?! …
