I've come to the conclusion that the best way that I'm going to be able to individualize our wedding is going to be in the details. The decor in the hall, the bouquet, the favours, the music, etc. And now that we've gotten over all the wedding angst (to go Catholic or not go Catholic), I'm starting to get excited again about the details.
I have a million and one projects on the go. Good thing I still have almost 5 months to get all of these projects done.
The current project: Welcome gift baskets for my out of town guests.
Do you need them or not? I don't know. Etiquette and practicality aside, I just know that if I was flying in from across the country I'd probably appreciate a well thought out basket.
So I'm doing them for the guests that are staying in a hotel. I found this article online with a few ideas. The goal is to have some of the main items but also to include some more personal touches. For example, for the friend who loves fashion I'm going to include a fashion mag for her to read in her down time.
