Wedding Dreams and Sleepless Nights
Ok ladies, So with just under a month to go I am starting to have wedding dreams and even some nightmares. I am tossing and turning, my mind is racing before i go to sleep keeping me up ALL NIGHT!!!...

Im not having any doubts or cold feet I think its just pure excitement and worrying about not getting everything or forgeting something the day off..

I know it wont be 100% perfect.

So ladies I was wondering if you have any juicy wedding dreams... or going thru the same things as me!!!!

Ask a Question
Reception Entrance Music
Ok ladies i really need your help!

I am looking for a long enough fun song that all of us can walk into the reception. Im looking for a fun upbeat song like "I gotta feeling" - by black eyed pees but i cant use that one because my FN son got married a month ago and it would just not be right to use it....

So we are looking for something up beat it can be techno style as that is totally me.

Thanks

THey have queen sized beach beds, ahh cant wait to lay in those bad boys and relax on the beach!

We will stay 3 days / 2 nights in a beachfroont room overlooking th gulf coast... Ahh sunset!!!!

CANT WAIT!!

DIY Wedding
My Unique Favors
So whats better way to include our last name and my culture into one cute favor.

My new last name with be "HEATH" just like the english chocolate candy bar :D and since i am croatian i decided to add a lil culture and include a croatian heart (licitarsko srce) (w.out the box). This will all be in a brown organza bag with a tag that says Thank You and our names and date :D... it will be infront of each plate on the table...

I have to give a special thanks to my best friend back home in Croatia who went and bought 120 croatian hearts and sent them to me... They are specially made for me :)

Still trying to figure out a way to include a lil note about the tradition in the bag so people will understand what it is? Im thinking of just printing a lil note and additing it to the bag.

What the tradition means:
By giving a licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart) to your loved ones, you pass on the warmth and love of the Croatian nationÂ…
From ancient times, the original intention of licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart) was in giving it as a gift to your loved ones, whereby loved ones were given the warm and telling gift (licitarsko srce -licitar) on special occasions.

According to the tradition of giving licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart), which has been retained to the present day, a young man expresses his love, attention and fancy for a girl in this way.
