  1. I'm officially married! My wedding was crazy but all in all it was an amazing day. My husband (weird to say that!) fainted twice during our ceremony which made for a lot of drama. I will post more pics of decor and such later, as well as lots for sale. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks everyone! I can't believe I leave in 6 days! I'm the worlds biggest procrastinator so I still have SO much to do. Guestbook: instead of doing a traditional guest book, we are going to have everyone sign their name on a shell and put it in a vase. This way we can display it in our house. I got the vase for $3 at Michaels and I hot-glued rope halfway up it. Filled it halfway with sand and then everyone can put the shells in. I figured the shells would be scattered on the table in front of the vase. This is the vase full of shells: Table numbers: We have 31 guests so we only need 3 tables (two of ten and one of eleven). For the table numbers I got 3 white frames - sand pattern scrapbook paper from hobby lobby, and stick on numbers! I also ordered us these toasting glasses from etsy: To do: Assemble welcome bags Whiten teeth! Wax eyebrows Figure out ceremony music and assign someone to man the iPod Buy speakers for reception music Pack!! Cut out all of the place cards Buy a new bathing suit! Figure out makeup (having a friend do it) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Wow, it's been so long since I updated this! I leave for my wedding in 8 days, I can't believe it's finally here!! As I said before, I am the odd one out here - I'm doing a cruise wedding in Bermuda. We have a total of 31 guests coming to our wedding. 26 are taking the cruise with us and 5 are flying to Bermuda and staying on the island. I've been busy; here's the few things that are completed.... Here are our menus, we ordered them from Wedding Paper Divas. I copied the starfish and shell on the menus and used it to coordinate the place cards, thank-you letter (to go in welcome bag), welcome bag tag with each persons name, and a directory of everyone's cabin on the ship. I was going to order the welcome bag tags and thank-you letters from etsy but was able to DIY them myself - only paying $8 for the heavy cardstock! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I also had my final dress fitting today! I had them add extra crinoline to make the dress more full. I decided to wear white wedges that I've had for a long time. My wedding is on a deck, I'm 5 feet and my fiancé is 6'4 so I needed some height. I also didn't want to sink into the sand with heels on. I'm wearing my grandmas pearl necklace, bracelet, and matching earrings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I had my bridal shower a few weeks ago at a winery. It turned out soo nice, my family did an awesome job! My future sister in law handmade each bracelet for a favor. They were put in a small gift bag with a cookie shaped as an anchor and homemade chocolate candy my mom made from a seashell mold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Great story! I loved that you shared some of your favorite songs, I just listened to them all! Thanks for sharing!
  9. Update: Hey everyone! Wow, I haven't been on this site since January! Work and school have consumed my life in the past few months. No real updates except that I found my dress!! I was on the hunt for a short wedding dress which seemed like mission impossible. I finally found one...for $300! I was hoping for sleeves - was trying to avoid strapless in fear of having that dreaded "arm fat", but I still love this dress...

    Ugh, this is my fear! I am sending my invites out soon and I'm scared my friends and family will pull the same thing. :/ hang in there, in the end, the people that are there are the ones supporting you. I'm sure I will have flaky people back out at the last minute, but at least at my wedding I'll be surrounded by the ones who care!
  11. That 50% off coupon was nice. I love the hair! That's about the same length mine is. Looks like you are ready to go..exciting!!
  12. Thanks @@calgarybride2015! I love the idea of putting the letters by the cake! I've been working on my centerpieces... This was my inspiration, found this on Pinterest I've been working to recreate it, I found the stones and the tall vase at the dollar store, and the other two vases at hobby lobby. I have the large starfish, just not the tray with sand. My FI is pretty good at wood working, going to see if he can make me the tray.. I also found these little lanterns at Hobby Lobby, they were $3 each on sale, and the LED frameless candles were $3 I think. Thought I would use these to decorate the bar. Our reception area is an open deck, so I'm trying to stick with the nautical/beach theme. It's basically outside overlooking the beach.
  13. Okay everyone, I've been bargain shopping. Been to Michaels, Joanne Fabrics, the dollar store, and Hobby Lobby. Pretty much everything I got was on sale..I don't think I spent over $10 on any item. I haven't started putting things together yet, but here's a few things... These I found at Michaels. Small candle holder $2.99, crushed shells $5...used 50% off coupon so $2.50 I added water and a floating candle... I thought it came out cute! I'm going to get more of the candle holders, thought id scatter them around the reception area, maybe on the table with the guestbook. Then I found this little treasure chest at Hobby Lobby. It was $2 on sale. I love it! The size is small, and I love the clasp. I found inserts from ring boxes I have and put them in there. I'm going to maybe wrap those in burlap. And have FI add a wood divider. I'm pretty excited about this one... I really wanted to incorporate my grandparents that have passed away. I lost two on my side and the FI lost both sets of grandparents. I made up this "in memory" sign on publisher, and got the frames, candle, and candle holder at hobby lobby. The small frames were $4 each on sale. I love how they all look together. They have an expensive antique-y look to them. Not sure what I'm going to do with these letters yet, but thought they were fun.. There's more but I'll save for another post.. Not sure why some pictures are sideways... Sorry!
