The plan as of 7/15/2011 (380 days till wedding)
Matt and I have reserved the lovely 3 bedroom Custer Ranch House for us, the best man and his guest and my maid of honor and her hubbie. There are also 4 bunkbeds in the "entertainment room" for whoever else may need a bed.
Saturday Morning (7/30/11)
Noon: Ceremony in front of Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park! *insert ooh and ahh here*
12:45ish- ceremony ends, wedding party and family have photo session while guests proceed to the White Buffalo Room at the Blue Bell Lodge for a catered Buffalo Burger Lunch!
1 pm: Wedding Party and family join guests at lunch and everyone chows down some yummy buffalo!
We have the room until 3 so people can hang out and relax for a while, chatting and catching up!
Then the wedding party and family will be off to a Buffalo Safari in jeeps touring the back hills of the Black Hills! Super Fun!(we may have to do this the next morning- I have been informed I will probably be in "high demand" on my wedding day and should not run off to see buffalo for 2 hours...)
*4 to 6:00pm* Break/ Naptime
6:30 pm- Hot Dog BBQ/ Pot-Luck at the Ranch House for all wedding attendies and their families and friends and extended cousins and whomever else wants to join us! We will have a variety or hot dog toppings, yard games and a "photo area" set up with hanging frames and a variety of props including these stylish 'staches!

I came up with the idea of using postcards from Custer State Park as my "Save the Date" cards...well, I found some on Amazon, so I bought about 100. Then I was cruising Ebay and found a package of 320 postcards for a $5.00 initial bid... I got caught up in the bidding process and now am the proud owner of 320 postcards(for only $22). So I now have about 500 postcards. Somebody needs to step in and prevent me from making such insane purchases! I guess if all else fails I can wallpaper a room in the leftovers!

So I am still asking those who I would like to stand up for/with me at the wedding but as I intend to have 7 ladies to make up my A-Team and I would like a variety of colors for their dresses.I mean lets face it not everyone looks good in canary yellow and I refuse to be one of those women who makes their bridesmaids wear something ugly...
