    Finally, my turn has come! I joined the forum in Oct. 2006 (the same time as Ann and Christine, who both have beautiful little girls!) and I have no idea if it wasn’t for the forum, I think I would’ve cancelled my DW upon planning!


    I will try to update this thread before I leave, but I am running out of time and I am not sure if I will have time to post those last minute details.

    Again forgive me for the terrible camera phone pics. Hans and I are planning to purchase a camera tomorrow!

    Here goes!

    The rings- Capri Jewelers in Downtown Los Angeles

      I don’t have a complete pic of Hans’ attire but these are his shoes and reception shirt both from BR (he will change after the ceremony and throw on sandals)

      We also purchased a tie and shirt from Macy’s. Suit is from Downtown L.A.

      Again, I don’t have a pick of the entire Bestmen attire, but this is the tie they will be wearing (from Macy’s) (they will change into guayaveras and throw on flip flops for the reception. I also purchased fedora type hats for them to stand out)

      My MOHs got their dresses made and I have only had a chance to see three and only have this one pic. They are all different, but they all have the same bottom portion.
      Click the image to open in full size.

      The MOH’s will hold one single green anthurium

      My FG dresses were also made. I am in love with them! The top is made from Alecon lace (nicer than mine) which was marked $45 per yard! I had to purchase 4.5, but the man was confused and charged me $45 for all of it plus a %10 discount for being “nice”. I love how it sort of mimics the top of my dress.

      My ring bearer, the tie was purchased through Etsy, suit purchased at Ross. (Excuse is expression, he was told to smile for the camera)

            Guestboard– 3 White erase boards from Lakeshore ($3 ea.)

            I came across this image and thought it would be a great alternative to a guest book. I plan to assign this to my cousins’ teen kids. All they need is a camera and instructions!

            Personalized Shot glasses – this was the sample I received about a year ago. My cousin arranged to get these made in MX but I have not seen the final result. Keep in mind the monogram will be larger.
