YAY!!!! For Andrea!!!!

Can I just tell you how much I am appreciating having Andrea as a friend!! She has been the official/unofficial Wedding Planner and has been amazing!!! Between her and Maria I have had to worry about very little!! And Andrea again comes through for me! She found the table runners for $1.00 a piece!!! and Tableclothes for $2.50! That seems much more reasonable and do able for me! Maria and I went to place after place looking at different options ready to pull our hair out, and Andrea gets online this morning and within a few hours has everything figured out! Really can't say how much I love and appreciate all her help with everything!!! After we secure the tableclothes everything is READY!!!!!

Invites are being printed and assembled this week. Dress fitting is tomorrow (lets all say a silent prayer that I can fit into it after trying it on for the first time 3 months ago.) It feels so good to have the bulk of everything done and paid for.

Ricky is handling all of the plans very well for the most part, but I know he is relieved that things have turned out to be less expensive for the most part then we were planning. The only things we have left to pay for are the wedding day pictures and the airfare to go to Cabo (again silent prayer that the prices will drop so we don't have to change plans.)

Love,

Lish & Ricky

A little Help!!

Okay so Maria and I went around today looking at fabric and I'm getting rather sad about the cost of things. I know weddings aren't cheap, but Ricky and I really are on a tight budget for this shindig we are putting together. We were looking today for white tablecloths and black table runners. We could rent the table clothes but when the tables themselves are only costing us 6.25 a piece it seems like highway robbery to pay 8.50 a piece for the table cloth. So I'm going to go the cheap route and ask any and all of you if you have any white round table clothes approx 70 inches that you would be willing to let me borrow. Even my California friends. My mom will be coming up with my sister and she could bring them. I know I'm tacky and cheap for even asking, but if you find it in your heart to allow us to use them I would greatly appreciate it. We need 12 of them.

Other news we've got the tables and chairs reserved, the flowers figured out, the chocolate fountains located and my dress paid for and figured out which Tux Ricky wants to wear. Oh and engagement pictures are done, wedding invitations all ready to be printed and then assembled Monday night. They should go out to everyone in the next week and a half.


Love,

Lish & Ricky
