This was a last minute thing but it turned out really cute, I didn't have all the people that RSVP'd show up but I still had a good time. I got a few bottles of wine to stock my bar at the reception with. :)

Groomsman Gifts
Beer Mugs....
I paid about $2 dollars a piece for these. I got the beer mugs from dollar tree and a glass etching kit from hobby lobby for like $15.00. I did 5 mugs and I have almost a whole jar of etching cream left to do wine glasses for my bridesmaids and ice cream cups for my maid of honor (my 9 year old daughter) my best man (my 10 year old son)flower girls (my daughter breanna and my friends daughter kaihlyn) and my ring bearer (my bridesmaids son nick). I'm also going to etch my bridesmaids names on some vases for the reception for them to put their bouquets in.

Thirty days till my wedding....
and i'm scared to death!!!
I haven't posted in a while but i've been busy and I have had nothing but bad luck the last couple of weeks. I thought we were going to have to post pone our wedding day but after a long talk we decided we didn't want to do that and it would be a lot of trouble to even try. We were worried about finances and it was causing trouble in our relationship. However, we worked through that and realized that we were letting all the decisions about starting our life together and the wedding itself overwhelm us. Before that I had three people drop out of our wedding after publicly bashing us all over facebook. I won't even get into all of that. So, we got through that as well. Just when I thought we were all set for the wedding with minimum worries my FH gets laid off from his job today the day after I mail our wedding invites. So at this point we can't change the date at all. I still owe for a few things and I can't pay it all and my monthly bills too. I am so worried. I just hope it all works out and my FH will start getting unemployment soon. I really wish we had just eloped because it seems like this wedding has caused nothing but trouble since the moment we started planning. I was so excited at first and couldn't wait for my special day and now all I want to do is cry, and get the whole thing over with. I feel terrible, I feel like I am being robbed of the great feelings I should be having right now. I just really hope things get better real soon. BTW I got a new job working where the FH worked about two months ago. I didn't get laid off because I work in the office so now I think i'm going to feel really akward at work. And I started classes last week and I have been so busy with homework, I can't even do wedding DIY projects. Hopefully, I am going to sit down this weekend and get some stuff done. I know I have been just blabbing away but I really needed to vent bad.

Wedding Invitation
What do you guys think?
I got this idea online and decided to create my own version much cheaper. The wording will go on top of the picture on a piece of vellum.

My Fiance and I have been together for six years, this is his first marriage and my second. I have two children Christian and Caitlin ages 10 and 9. Mike and I have a 4 month old named Breanna. We got engaged Feb. 12, 2010. And I really wanted to get married in October so I am scrambling to plan a great wedding in a limited amount of time and on a tight budget but i'm doing pretty good so far. My colors are dark purple and fuschia.
