Final Touches- Wedding/ Reception

I have 6 more days before we leave for Jamaica!  I started the day getting highlights and lowlights in my hair. Which are beautiful thanks to a new salon I found! Then I shopped with my soon to be mother-in-law for a few hours helping her find a dress and shoes for the reception. I followed that with more shopping with the soon to be hubby for clothes for our trip.

I've been working hard this weekend trying to get all the last minute stuff done for the reception which is the first day after we return. I know, I'm crazy right? Planning a reception the day after our late return flight, what was I thinking?!?

Does anyone know how to keep a house clean while packing to leave the country. Because I would really like to know! We will returning to house guests (literally, already at our house). It's a good thing they are related, or just like related, because at this point I am only promising clean sheets on the beds.

Here are a few photos from some last minute touches...
I bought these wedding themed placemates for the kiddos at the reception to color. How darling are those? If I had thought of such a thing earlier I would have created some myself and personalized them a bit more.
And tonight my boys are putting personalized labels on the water bottles.
I wanted to share with you the personalized coasters, but I am still waiting for part of the to arrive. I really don't like when things don't arrive when they say they should. :(

The next photos you will most likely see regarding my wedding/ reception will probably be from the actual events. Have I mentioned how excited I am?!

Hello Amy....I am very excited for you! Have a fabulous trip and CONGRATULATIONS! Don't worry about the reception and guests, etc. Everything will turn out great. You'll see.

I know this is the absolutely last thing of importance to you, but when you have a chance, could you add my blog to your blogroll? I'd appreciate it a lot? Chao! Susan
