I'm still unsure if we should have place cards. How did you do yours Lisa? I'm hoping for something fairly simple to DIY...

We have place tags. They took me about 2hours all up to make.

They are a piece of black board folded over with the guests name printed on shimmery paper and pasted on and there is a little paper flower on the right hand corner.

Very simple

I bought the precut placecards from Cards and Pockets, then made them to match our stationary 'theme'

I don't have a picture of the placecards themselves and they are in a box at mums, but I made the same thing for the kitchen tea to tell people what the different foods were - so they look like this, just with names instead of sandwich fillings/ cake names...

I'm about to do a massive S&T picture update as I haven't in forever...

Love your seating chart Eunice :heart: Ladylisa - OMG not long now!!!!! We are using our bombonniere as placecards. We're having silver organza bags with pink and silver wrapped heart chocolates and a pink and silver card attached thanking our guests and with each individual guests name. They should arrive this week and I'm hoping they look as good as in the pics :mrgreen:

Eunice your seating chart looks great and Lisa, love the place cards!

We printed our placecards and OOS booklets last night... another extremely late night but FH is a total perfectionist and spent hours on the design so i suppose it was only fitting that we then spend hours "test printing" before we even start printing... ANYWAY it is done now which is such a relief.

I am having the girls over on Friday night to help with putting the favours together.

Lisa, that looks great! I don't know if I'll have time to put together place cards now.. will probably just skip the idea all together. Lisa and Mellie, I can't believe it's only 5 days to go for you girls! :mrgreen:

Weird but I'm not nervous.. FH says he is just nervous about his speech and dancing... as we are both clumsy and he hates making speeches!

Thanks ladies!

I'm super excited and (finally) very nervous. Big day today with my MOH and mum. Really looking forward to hanging out with them.

We had our last meeting with the venue last night and had dinner with both sets of parents. Really nice night.

I had my first stress moment last night. I had my nails done yesterday and they did a bit of a cr*p job (not quiet stuck down at the top). They will be fine but last night at 3am it was the worst thing in the world. I was crying and thretening to pull them off. FH is very, very good and got me to have a sleep. I feel much better now and realise that they will be fine and i can remove them on Sunday so no issues.

Just waiting for my MOH to wake up - we did not get to see her when we arrived home last night as she was already asleep. It's taking all my will power not to wake her up

Teena, I've been stressing about that :( Storms this week? :evil:

We have just paid for our reception in full. God, where has the money gone to??? 8O 8O The money that we've been saving up for two years has just vanished into thin air.

I know... I'm watching the Weather Channel website like a hawk... at this stage doesn't look like it will clear but you never know... what happened to the sunshine state?! I'm really starting to get over it!

If it's any consolation, I have seen some absolutely STUNNING stormy photos out at Sirromet... you have the most beautiful venue and no matter what the weather, it's going to be gorgeous :heart:

I hope so :( I'm still hoping it wouldn't be as bad as the forecast predicted. They predicted a storm today but there was only some very light shower over at my place...

Here's hoping for a miracle and sunny clear blue skies this Saturday :e_pray: :e_pray: :e_pray:

How are your preparations coming along? My parents and brother arrive tomorrow morning and the rest of the extended family on Wednesday so it's going to get busy for us tomorrow onwards. I think this week will just go by quickly 8O
