Few suggestions:
Manis/Pedis - so my bridal party threw a fit about this so it was just me, my sis and my stepmom who did it together. I just left his sisters alone, asked them to at least paint their toenails, which they did.

Bubbles - too bad you don't live closer, I have a ton that were passed down to me for mine that were never used that I'm hoping I can pass along to a wedding party soon! Coming to STL within the next 3 months?

Card box - usually your reception hall will provide one, with a lock, just in case. Our place told us that in past, the b & g, unaware, ended up having no cards because guests left with them so they provided one for that.

Just a few ideas!

Yay3 months!!! So exciting. I didn't worry much about our readings. I actually asked my aunt to choose the ones she thought best fit Brian and I. She head a beautiful poem called "Hands". We got all our bubbles at the $1 Store. We used an old picnic basket from my i laws for a card box.
