I need help with bubble instructions!

Our 150 programs are done. yay! Drew helped me finish them up last night.

Tonight I realized that I didn't say anything about blowing bubbles after we're pronounced husband and wife. So now I'm trying to think of a sign to put on the bubble basket or somewhere so our guests know to when to blow the bubbles. I'm thinking something like, "Shower the newlyweds with bubbles after they're pronounced husband and wife," but I'm not sure that I like that... Any ideas?

New stuff (really creative title, haha!)

First up - our programs. Super easy, super inexpensive & multipurposeful (is that a word?)

I've blurred names. :)

My daughter and I are wearing red shoes - aren't they pretty!?

We bought my dad, Drew's dad and Drew's stepdad ties on Etsy from rabbitstop. She even makes cute personalized labels for the back.

I work at a newspaper as a graphic designer. After our engagement announcement was published, I came home to this in my mailbox. It's our announcement on the metal plate used to print the paper. The press operator is a totally awesome guy and dropped it off at my house. Isn't that totally cool? Love it. (again, I had to blur out the whole thing since all of our immediate families names are on it)

I'm going to finish another 50 programs tonight and mark that off the list. Hope to post more soon! Cheers!

The Day After the Bachelorette Party

and I'm tired. Last night was a blast. We started out the evening in our backyard, playing games (like, playdoh penis beauty contest), and they all bought me some of the cutest lingerie. I will add photos as soon as my bff Matron of Honor emails them to me.

In other news, I've been getting tons of stuff done. I'm sorry for the lack of posts but it's been super hectic lately. I start school next week so I'm glad I don't have that much left to do.

My list is down to:

Finish the programs
Finalize ceremony/reception music
Wrap bridal party and parents gifts
Solve the unity candle vs. wind at our outdoor ceremony issue
Write my vows
Make Reserved Ceremony Signs
Buy kisses & put stickers on them
Apply for our marriage license (yay!)
Order flowers from SamsClub
Order Solemates for my girls
Get food for cocktail hour
I feel like I'm forgetting all kinds of things... ugh.

36 days left (Drew mentioned this today. sweet, huh?)

We're down to 45 days

Working on the programs this weekend and some last minute details. Hopefully I can post some photos on Sunday! :)

Off to relax for a while in a nice hot bath. This wedding stuff is too much sometimes...
