Jessyg20's VERY LONG & DETAILED Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

elefant.gifThank you sooooo much ladies.


woot.gifI do look back now and I can't believe it took 9mo to get to this point...I seriously have an amazing FI who did help me when I asked him to and 2 special friends that manned my "sweat shop". This literly was my part time job. I'd wake up early do some wedding stuff, go to work, come home and go to bed late doing more wedding stuff. I'm sure some of you girls know what that feels like.

Thank you for all the compliments. The majority of my ideas were inspired by the DIY girls. angel1.gifYou girls ROCK! I give you girls all the credit for the inspirations (i.e fans, tears of joy, starfish poem, key holders).


I have 91 guests and I hope they enjoy all the small details.humble.gif

OK, there was so much to look at I know I'm going to forget some things I wanted to comment on..

First ~ I can't wait to hear all about your Punta Cana wedding! I hope you get Utsey as your guide on the busride from the airport to the resort - he is awesome!

I love your veil!!!

I love your cake inspiration (same as mine - but mine didn't quite turn out like that, lol) ... and the hang tags on your fans look suspiciously familiar, he he. :-)

I think you will be so pleased with your mugs - I think we wasted money on ours (insulated travel mugs instead of what you're using).

I can't wait to hear all about EdenH ... it looked unbelieveable while we were in Punta Cana!!!!


Oh, and nice job packing and enlisting the help of others to get everything there!!!

You defitnetly were one of the first girls I looked up to when I first joined the forum. Morgan too!

I can't wait either...I'm having my sister take pics of everything once it's all set up so I can share my experience.

I'm more excited now that I posted my planning thread! Yay!!!!

Look at all your stuff. Thank god for bridal parties huh?! Your dress is very pretty. Do you have a certain vendor you are buying cigars from once in the DR? We are going to buy some when we get there for our reception too but didnt have a vendor in mind.

    • 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 :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
