Nov 08 brides

Recommended Posts

I have been away for 11 days, so I see there has been a bit going on! LOL.

First off, as for the FI and my dress, he figured that he should get to pick out the dress for me. I finally got him to understand that he gets to see it when I am walking down the isle to him. There that part was taken care of. But then he knows our daughter is having the same dress as mine but no train, and when he found out they had it in the city and she tried it on, he wanted to go and see what it looked like on her. Now he uses the excuse, "She's my daughter and I should get to have a say in what she wears". I have told him that my dress is white with Teal, but that is it. It seems to have held him off for a bit. LOL

 

I got my shoes last week too. I am planning to go barefoot for the ceremony, and then I got 2 pairs of flipflops for the reception. One pair is white, and when I walk in the sand they will leave little palm tree impressions. I got these ones at Pay-less. The other pair are a green/teal colour and they have sea shells across the top. I got these ones at Winners.

I would love to see your shoes!

I got some things marked off my list myself - I got MOH, BM, her hubby and kids, my aunt and her husband to all get their deposits on their trips yesterday. This morning my friend got our logo done for our OOT bags, so I went ahead and ordered my bags from Promotional tote bags custom sizes and styles from cheap totes and I ordered some handkerchiefs from Bumblebee Linens - Wedding Handkerchiefs, Linen Napkins & Towels, Embroidery Blanks

She is going to do the embroidery of the logos on the bags and she will embroider our wedding date on the hankies. I forgot that I was doing hankies! I got one for me and FI, one for each BM, MOH, my Flowergirl (daughter - who is a BIG crier at weddings) one for FMIL and my stepmom.

your fi is sneaky, trying to use your daughter in order to see your dress. lol He must be dying to see it, that's sweet.

 

the palm tree impression flip flops sound really cute. are you going to wear them both during the reception or just decide later on one pair? i know i'm going to buy another pair the turqoise color of my bm dresses just in case i decide i want ones with color. i have barefoot sandals for the ceremony since its on the beach.

celina, you got a lot done. that must a relief that your mom, bm and aunt booked their trip.

 

Where's the pic of your logo? you can't mention that your logo is done and not show us what it looks like. i have bags from cheaptotes (i actually have to sell them because i ordered other ones) but they are really nice quality. are you getting the canvas ones? they are very nice, especially for the price.

 

btw, i received my totes we had done today. when i get home i'll post a pic, they look great.

Ok ladies, if you dont mind me asking how much does each tote cost including the tote and the logo? I found ones for $4.95 each that I love but dont know if I am nuts for paying that much.

 

Today I got my flowergirl flip flops that they are going to decorate for the ceremony and I ordered my FG gifts (diamond studs, they are both 10 years old) and my MOH gift, diamond dangling earrings. Oh and I made my alteration appointment to have my train cut off.

Yeah, it was my Maid of Honor, brides maid and her hubby and kids and my aunt and uncle. I think our group is about 30 right now. smile159.gif

My logo is in a word file, so I haven't posted it because I thought it took points to view- do you know if it does? I attached it anyway. Yeah, I got the canvas totes. I tried to post a pic of the logo she had embroidered, but I couldn't get it to upload on to photobucket. I think it is because I'm at work which is weird because it has worked before.

Totes were 99cents each. I have a friend who works for an embroidery company. She is embroidering all of our bags with our logo and the handkerchiefs for FREE! I was shocked! I told her I could pay her, and she said NO - they do so many huge orders - 1000 + - that my 30 bags were nothing! SHe is doing the logo with the circle, palm tree and it just says "Puerto Vallarta, Mexico". I figured that people could use the bags over again if it wasn't SO personalized.

How sweet of you to get them diamonds! I'm getting my girls (MOH, BM's, and Flowergirl) silver starfish necklaces.

booo i have to wait to i go home to look at them celina, my computer word doesn't have all the fonts i have at home. 30 ppl is good, are you still expecting more to book?

 

steph i would love to be your moh and get diamond dangle earrings, i bet they're pretty. for my bags, the ones i originally bought from cheap totes were .79 a bag (i think now they're .99) and the iron transfer paper i bought was $20 for a 20pgs. so that was like 1.79 a bag. the ones i now have are 2.50 a bag with the imprint already done. what kind of bag are you getting for $4.95, they could be a lot nicer than mine. Mine were nothing special just cotton totes.

You know - I'm not sure if anyone else is booking. My dad has a huge family and only 5 on his side are coming. FI has a small family and all of them are coming! I really want to have an AHR, but FI said no. I'm just biding my time - I'll figure a way to squeeze it in!

Me too - I want some dangle diamond earrings!
