Becks' planning thread **Pic Heavy**

Recommended Posts

As many others have stated..WOW. I love it, I'm excited to do my own, and I'm totally overwhelmed! You are the queen DIYer! prayer1.gif

I love the idea of the pre-travel kit. When did you give that to your guests? Before or after the invites? Or after they RSVPed?

The brochure is exactly what I need to give to my guests, especially for several people in my family that will be flying out of the country for the first time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post everything!

I sent them about 3 weeks before the wedding to those who can RSVP'd and booked.

At the wedding, I was teased mercilessly for sending people so much information ("another mailing from Rebecca?!?"). I loved it!

And I'm so glad you guys can make use of this stuff! I had such fun putting it together - now I just don't know what to do with my free time. I'm going to have to start a business on the side helping you guys with your weddings!

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 – itâ€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!

These are the inside pages. I borrowed the idea from someone else, and tweaked it to fit the album from Hallmark. I canâ€t remember who it was, but thank you SO much!

Becks,

Do you have the template for the guest books? I love this idea but am having the hardest time creating one like it and I haven't had any luck searching for one!

Thanks!
Jenn

I would have thought I'd included it. But I'm too lazy to go check. Here it is (again?)

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
