well i looked through the pics of my makeup trail and they were all blurry. so... i deleted them. they didn’t do her justice. i used and booked natasha from smashbox at nordstroms at the north county mall. she is coming to my mom’s house morning of and doing my makeup for $75 and everyone else for $50 each. she is wonderful...go have a trial with her

i met with freddie at golden touch last night. I FORGOT TO TAKE PICS BEFORE I FELL ASLEEP!!!!!  i loved what he did. he made my hair very sleek with a slight bump at the top of my head...very elegant and 50s ish. i wish i had pics!! his trials are free so i tipped $15.

thanks to yearofthemonkey i bought my thank yous. i was searching everywhere and couldn’t find what i wanted. i was looking for a plain card with a cutout in the middle to insert our own picture and she pmed me this link: www.dickblick.com/zz129/40a/

so i bought them and need to begin writing the thank yous for the couple of gifts we have already received!

thanks for posting your photo/thank you! i was looking for those, too!!!!! i love magazine subscriptions as gifts. it's the gift that literally keeps on giving, and most of the time you don't even have to shell out a $20 for them!

so keith and I had a wonderful meeting with mick from elite british dj on thursday night. it completely reconfirmed why we selected him!

 

he told me some helpful advice that’s not just for the el cortez:

 

1. to make sure I ask to have a 6ft table with a skirt on it for him. the skirt helps by hiding he cords!

 

2. we can’t really do a receiving line at the church or el cortez and I don’t want to make table rounds instead of eating but THE MOTHERS want it.  so mick helped us decide to do a table picture quickly at each table. it will be nice pics later AND carrie can help it go very quickly.

 

3. since carrie will be helping to take table pics, she will need to be served when keith and i are…first.

 

4. since we are doing the money dance, more tastefully called the honeymoon dance, he suggested we have our best man and maid of honor escort someone to cut in every 30 seconds. that way people wont feel awkward about cutting in. which means more moolah!

 

5. AND very importantly, put the young people tables by the speakers! most likely they will be up and dancing so it wont bother them the way it may other groups

60" tables that seat between 6-10 but 6-8 comfortably

and

72" tables that seat between 8-12

hmm i wasn't thinking about having a honeymoon/money dance but my mom really wants us to have it. i like your idea of having the maid of honor and best man escort every 30 seconds.

and how big are you making your thank you signs? i want to do the same thing too for our 'thank you' cards. i was just taking a look at my 'to do' list and i neglected to add that on. oops!

i don't really know how big to make them... i was thinking "thank" on one sheet of regular sized paper and "you" on the other... i have to play with it.

good god, i want to do the honeymoon dance. it is a nice way to have face to face time with guests and of course the extra money doesn't hurt!
