The Little Details

Beach Wedding Cake Topper Beach Wedding Cake Topper Cake topper - etsy - LandscapesNMiniature Pam is wonderful to work with! I am anxiously waiting for my cake topper to arrive. Pam messaged me and said to let her know if there is anything I don't like. I'm sure I'll absolutely love it, but wow! Talk about customer service!     Bridal Hair Piece with Rhinestone Centerpiece etsy - PetalBlushLove This is the stock photo, I ordered mine in off-white and I'll post a photo once I receive mine. I was referred to Bridgette by another bride, and now I am referring her to anyone interested in a hair piece. I told Bridgette that I have a fitting on March 10th and sure told me she'd make sure I had it by March 1st! Bridgette also sent me photos of fabric to help me decide which color would be best for my dress.     Gown Details Getting pinned for first fitting. I am actually using the headpiece Elizabeth by Love Veils and Accessories for my belt/sash. I purchased earrings by Malis Henderson Jewelry. They are teardrop style, and surprisingly not heavy, so I can wear them all day and night. I'll post a photo of them once they come in.           Tumblers We ordered ordered blank cups from discountmugs.com. We found a coupon on retailmenot.com so that was exciting. Cups should arrive by March 3rd. I think we are going to purchase stickers from etsy.     Mini Beach Balls Fans   Both were ordered from http://www.orientaltrading.com. I also used retailmenot.com and got $5.00 off purchase and free shipping. These are supposed to arrive around March 4th.

Wedding Event Locations & Decor

Ceremony - Beach     Cocktail Hour - Jacuzzi   Reception - Deck             The coral bows add just enough color for the "wow" factor & bonus: no other decorations needed       I like this clean, crisp look for the reception since we'll be outside, but maybe coral napkins like the second picture?

Our Timeline, So Far...

December 2013 - Engaged!   January - February 2014 - Trying to decide what kind of wedding we'd like to have   March - Spoke with our Travel Agent & started looking into resorts and wedding packages   April - Decided on Dreams Riviera Cancun & received confirmation letter for wedding date and package! - Choose wedding colors - Dress shopping   April-May - Researched & Emailed photographers   May - Booked Del Sol Photography! - Found my "something blue" (https://www.etsy.com/listing/119071866/something-blue-personalized-wedding?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=something+blue+wedding+dress+label&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery)   June - Sent out Save the Dates (we did an evite Save the Date to save a little money so we could upgrade formal invitations) - Decided on Passport Invitations & Boarding Pass postcard Reply Cards (http://weddingpassports.com/)! - Returned to dress shop to try on the two dresses I could't get out of my head... and said "Yes to the Dress!" Private Collection 18929 (ivory)   July - Asked my sister and bestie to be my Matrons of Honor - Mailed invitations & reply cards - Ordered & received my barefoot sandals   ....Now just waiting for the RSVPs to come in (guests have until December 30, 2014). We asked that guests book through our TA, as this will be their official RSVP (this request was included in our passport initiation). I figure this would be less stress on us, or I hope it will be.   Once we have the official number, I will start ordering OOT bags/favors.   My wedding dress should come in around November.   So, unfortunately, there isn't too much to be done between now and January because I won't receive a WC until 3 months out (that's how our resort handles weddings, and frankly, I think that is a great idea - for their sanity and having to work with brides daily). I think we are going to use the in-house photographer for our TTD session, so I will book that when everything else once we have our WC.
