They weren't too excited about this project... I felt bad and ended up finishing the cutting part the next morning before they got up. :) ... see I'm not bridezilla. However, Rachel and Karolyn still thought I was trying to keep them prisoners in our home. Rachel couldn't figure out how to get out of the house one morning to check the weather, then it rained pretty hard another day, and of course the sun didn't come out very often while they were here.... therefore they kept the bridezilla joke running all weekend long!
We got my hair done Friday morning before we tried the beach again. We aren't sure if she was ready for me, so I noticed she didn't put the best effort into making it perfect. However, I did like it and we talked about what was going to be different on the day of. I am going to wear my veil for the ceremony and then the flower for the reception. :)
The flowers were the longest/hardest project. We cut and wrapped all the bridal party's bouquets first. Then we moved onto the centerpieces. This is where we all had to think about things and really come up with the best idea. (the centerpieces will all have sand in them)Thanks to my girls and my fiance, they turned out wonderful! Now, I just can't wait to see them completed on Aug. 9th!
Well, I have many more pictures, but since my camera isn't working on the computer... this will have to do. I guess it's a good thing though- I don't want all the details to be revealed before the wedding! Here are a few pictures of the weekend... proof that I wasn't bridezilla the WHOLE time!

We love them and plan to use them at the entrance table of the wedding reception.
Aren't the polka dots perfect!! :) She added that touch herself... and it's going to look great with our polka dot theme!

We are working on our welcome cookout (rehearsal dinner) invites now. We plan on attaching them to the OOT bags (out of town) and sending an email to the bridal party. Keep a look out for them!
Still cutting our programs.... it is such a project. I do a little at a time so I don't drive myself crazy. When K and Rachel get here, I plan on having them help put them together. Hopefully by then my camera is working!!
My checklist is getting more detailed the closer we get. :) I'm so excited!

Until then- I'll give a short update. I went shopping (5 1/2 hrs. worth of shopping!) yesterday and bought a few things. (which I took a picture of.... ) I bought the materials to put together some gerber daisy pens to use for the guestbook. Here is an example of what it'll look like.
I also bought a cardbox, tablecloths, and some materials to finish up our programs. Here is photo of what the programs will look like. (of course the real pics will have to come later)
My project I'm working on now are necklaces for my bridesmaids. I found a picture online awhile ago and decided I was going to make them. It's not too hard, I'll just have to watch a lot of TV shows while I make them!
More to come when the computer is fixed.

Some things on my "to-do-list" right now are:
-shop for lingerie
-color the sand for the sand ceremony
-find tableclothes for the sweetheart's table and the candy buffet
-cut & put together programs
-make the BM's jewelry
-order candle for Kirby's dad
-order something special for my dad
-work on our parents gift
-finish up the candy labels
I know it seems like a lot, but it's all fairly small projects. Since school is offically out for the summer... we'll have lots of time to work on things.
One big check off the list is Kirby's ring. He was never in too big of a hurry to pick it out, but he's finally done it. The best part is we bought it on Ebay!!!
Well I plan on keeping up with the blog as often as possible. Keep checkin' back for updates!

This blog is going to start off being mostly about wedding planning. I'm sure after we get married (2 months away!) it will turn into a blog about our marriage and life in South Carolina
Here is some of our engagement photos we had taken about 2 months ago. (Click: https://webmail.horrycountyschools.net/owa/redir.aspx?C=526103b5dae642909037069e5e49ee54&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.bluecrushphoto.com%2fSlideshows%2fAnna_KirbyEngagement)We had such a good time and it has me even more excited about our wedding pictures! :)
I hope to post more tonight. I have to write out our thank you's from my bridal shower. Some girls at school threw me a "beach themed" shower last Thursday! It was great! Anyways... hopefully more later.
