As of this morning we had 240 days to go. I guess now it's more like 239. :) By the time Amanda's birthday rolls around and we go to Vegas to celebrate we'll be under 200. :-D
I'm trying to figure out what to do for favors and place cards. Some options, none of which are mutually exclusive:
1) Coasters that double as place cards. There are some really cute ones that are photo coasters and you can put the place card in the photo spot for guests to pick up. Then they can take them home and (hopefully) use them rather than throw them away.
2) Traditional place cards in wine cork holders. This goes well with our more traditional theme as well as the fact that our centerpieces are going to be wine bottles we've been collecting with flowers and stuff.
3) Milk and cookies bar. Or at least just the cookie bar. The cookie bar will happen no matter what we do in the favor/place card department. The cookies could be the only favor, or they could be an extra dessert.
4) Something else I've yet to think of or find online.
