So ....first I was going to make a shadow box, but we had way too many big things.  So, I took our empty book case and set this up.  So much for me selling anything.  We love it too much!

We got CPs, cake topper, cake stand, shells, popcorn buffet vases, ring holder, pen holders, guest book, signature drink framed, guest book poem framed, card box, my bouquet, cake table decor, sand ceremony vases, and sweetheart table seahorses.  Mike loves it!

I see a lot of dusting in the future!

I love giving gifts!

Here's what we got our BP, parents, and each other. 

For the Girls

It was a mess!  Everytime I passed something in the store, I had to get it to add to the bag.  The girls said they loved that the gift bag was like a bottomless pit! Here's was it contained....



Bath Set (including salts, lotion, shower Gel, and loofah)


Day of Jewelery

Manicure Kit


Digital Photo Keychain

Sashes for their dresses

And I am sure I am forgetting something!

I will also be getting them a 5x7 photo in a frame from the wedding.  A pic I think they would want.


For the Boys

Van Huessen Ties

Duffle Bag with the name embroidered on it (they loved this!)

Embroidered Polo wiht G.T.A.S.J.

I can't tell you what it means and trust me, you do not want to know.  It's a family thing!

For My Dad

Parent Album

My dad runs and owns his own Hot Dog truck.  So we got him a hat and polo shirt with "Steve's Snack Shack" embroidered on it.

For the Groom

We capped it at $20 each cause we didn't want to go even more into debt.  I got him these 2 Zelda Wisdom Figurines...

For the Bride

He ignored the budget and got me this brookstone 10inch digital picture frame.

Gifts Gifts and more Gifts photo 2

And he got "Lisa & Mike Forever" engraved on the top and "Life is ours (which I got engraved on his ring) we life it our way" engraved on the bottom.

Because he went overboard, I gave a free pass on having to write me a letter for the day of.  I think he got off easy ;-)

ok...I didnt actually do mine cause I was a basket case from my dads toast right before.  This is the jist of what I was gonna say.

To Mikes Parents...thank you so much for welcoming me into the family.  I feel blessed to have you as my parents too.  Most of all, I will forever be grateful that you raised Mike to be the supportive, caring, responsible man he is.  I will always cherish him for those qualities. 

And dad, please know that you made me the person I am today.  When I look into Mikes eyes, I know he loves me whole heartedly.  It is the same look that I imagine you gave to mom many times (Mom passed way when i was 7 and dad was devastated).  I love you so much.


Could ya believe I didn't get to say that!  Stupid emotions!


Mike did a speech too, but shame on me...I don't remeber it at all!

What a feeling!  Over 10,000 posts and I even have a BADGE to prove it!  :-)

About 1 year ago I was referred to PW by my MOH.  I don't think she realized that I would become so involved!  :-P As of today, I am a wife, a PW hostess, and wedding enthusiast for life.  I am a better person for having "met" PW and all the girls here.  You all have been so supportive, inspiring, and well gosh darn it....sweet! 

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Here's a little message from my hubby Mike. 

Hey Project Wedding!  Thank you for all your help with our wedding plans.  You brides all helped make it the special day that it was.  And to my bride, I love you and you look just as beautiful today as you did on our wedding day.


Love ya PW!!!!
