Wow. I can’t believe it’s all come up so soon! Less than a month to go! Many of you have asked, and I’ve really been excited about doing a planning thread, so here goes! I think all my templates are either attached to the first post, or are included in the linked threads.

If you’re in a hurry, don’t start in. I put this together in word before I posted it. It’s 8 pages in word…Brace yourselves…

It all started with the proposal. Well, no. Actually it all started with a subway ride, but we can cut ahead to the good stuff. Here’s the story:

My to do list, which I kept adding stuff to and couldn’t have survived without. I put a thread together a few months back, so if you want a monster to do list, you can pull it from here:

It went with a four-page letter to my 5 best girlfriends telling them why I loved them all. You know… all the mushy stuff.

Our pre-travel packets included one luggage tag per person, one brochure and one Spanish for dummies book:

We bought shirts for the men and the nephews, and dresses for the nieces. Here are the cards that went with them:

Chris wrote the inside – I thought it was too funny not to post:

I can’t find a photo of their shirts! It’s a blue tropical print in silk and linen from Macys.

Gifts for the unofficial bridesmaids – jewelry bags (made by my fabulous mom!) and starfish necklaces (from Kohls):

My dress:

This is from the first fitting, so it looks a little weird.

It’s a WToo dress (Watters and Watters) the style name is Adriana.


My ceremony shoes (if the sand is too hot to go barefoot) from Old Navy:

My reception shoes, from Dyeables, style name lovely:

My mothers’ hair pins (don’t ask me how I’m going to put all this stuff in my hair PLUS a veil!)

I’ve clearly overplanned this stuff. There’s more…

Welcome dinner dress, from Dessy,

And the shoes – from Aerosoles on sale for $40!

FI’s welcome dinner suit (although he may not wear the jacket) and shirt:

Welcome dinner menu card

Wedding dinner menu cards – each one is personalized for each guest with their names, table number, and menu selection. The bottom of the card is perforated and tears off to be handed to the waiter so he brings the right stuff (and yes, actually, FI is having the crispy shrimp and the rack of lamb):

Our cake inspiration – ours will have pink roses instead of the red callas – and will be Tres Leches:

Our Guest Non-Book – it’s a plate that has a special pen – everyone signs, then you take it home, bake it and the marker becomes permanent. I does say not to use it for food – I assume acids and such will damage the marker. Came from Target!

Our Guest Book (from Hallmark) – so appropriate!
Click the image to open in full size.

These are the inside pages. I borrowed the idea from someone else, and tweaked it to fit the album from Hallmark. I can’t remember who it was, but thank you SO much!

The Welcome Books, ala Mandy – these are bound down the left side with a black coil, and have a clear plastic cover (front and back), the four pages per photo are cut, so 32 pages in all, I left out a bunch of the puzzle pages:

My borrowed starfish, from Morgan, replete with Nibblet:

The ceremony site – we will have a similar set up, except that the chairs will have bright pink organza ties on them, and the gazebo-thing will have pink and white lilies running up and around the front and top:

The bar, cocktail hour, and party venue – we’ll have it set up lounge style with a bunch of couches and a few cocktail tables:

Centerpieces on the cocktail tables, except with bright pink rose petals instead of orchids:
Click the image to open in full size.

The restaurant where we’re having dinner – we aren’t changing much except that the tables will all be for 6 people, except for the kids table which will be for 8. (There are only 7 of them, so I’ve laid claim to the last chair for when I get bored with grown-ups):

Okay… I think that’s it! I’m sure I forgot something… I'm going to add a blank post, just in case, so I can go back and add whatever I've forgotten.
