GAH! *drools* OK, I've only got so far as the second page and I love it! The pic of you from behind with your veil? lurve. And your scrapbook looks, from what I can see, better than any I've done. Trust me. Smiley
I still have the MyPublisher program on my computer but haven't even opened it since downloading it on this comp hah.
OK let me go look through the rest Smiley
(edit)
Awwww Mar! I got all teary-eyed looking through that! I love all the pictures. The way you put it together is wonderful. I felt like I was there watching it. I saw (probably) all of your posts on here so I knew your wedding was awesome, but this book just makes me wish I had been there. So purty.
Did you do the little corner borders? I don't remember seeing those as part of the program, but I could definately be wrong.
(edit 2)
Was actually a picture of the marriage license, or did you draw it up/alter it? The only one I've seen in real life is my mom and dad's and their's looks nothing like that.
*squeal* I love it!

Thanks! awww, if I could get you teary eyed, I wonder how my Mom will react??  Smiley  Oh, and it was a picture of us at the Cook County Courthouse downtown holding up our marriage license! So, it is the actual piece of paper, and us holding it. I had all these illusions (delusions!) of creating a beautiful one in the vein of the "ketubbah" style. I downloaded about a million different styles and was going to handpaint my own and have everyone sign it. Well, guess what got nixed when I came down to the wire! But, if you want some inspiration for beautiful ketubbah's, let me tell you, I've got the motherload, just PM me! I don't happen to be Jewish, but there is something about the romantic elaborate drawings that really speaks to me. Here's a favourite gallery of mine:
http://www.ketubbah.com/gallery.html

You are quite the trooper getting through that whole wedding album. My husband was actually there and he had a hard time the second time last night! ha. In order to get those little design things in the corners all you have to do is upload the "wedding" style, and those options will automatically load when you are building your pages. If I had had ALL the darn time in the world I would have designed each page in PowerPoint and uploaded them as full bleed in order to take advantage of the sheer massive size of each page.

Hey, is your maid of honour crafty? Maybe she could start collecting stuff for you and then at your bridal shower you could have your guests each do a page for you too. All the fun with none of the hassle! : )

Linz, you are an AWESOME theoretical planner. Just think how thoroughly everything will be worked out once you have the ring! (precongrats!)  Grin

My planning book is huge and I never use it. You guys are making me want to reorganize mine now! Linz, your table of contents is très inspirational.

What a great idea! The scrapbook is so cool and they way it's organized it is pretty just to look at long after the wedding.

CONGRATULATIONS LINZ! That's awesome. No more "theoretical planning" for you. From here on out it is all ACTUAL planning.

WOO HOO! Thanks! Smiley I have all of my stuff printed out and behind colorful dividers in a nice neat 3" binder. complete with pockets and of course the business card holder (brilliant idea). It's all quite lovely looking.

I met with a planner this morning and she complimented me on my meticulous (OCD??) organization. Smiley Even my hyper-organized fiance is impressed (although he mentioned when I came in w/ my binder "Really... you did this all in TWO days???" hehehe )

Good thing I started saving the stuff to print beforehand though... we're getting married this August! Smiley
