Twixygrl's (Melissa) Planning Post!!

Recommended Posts

I would just like to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you for contributing all these amazing ideas to the forum. There are very few things posted on my planning thread that I came up with on my own. Most of the ideas have been done by so many different brides in so many different ways, so if it looks like yours, it probably is! Here we go!

 

For those of you who are interested, I created a “Wedding Details Document†for my wedding coordinators and myself (mainly for myself) which indicates the time and services of each vendor, a schedule of each event, details who is responsible for what, and also includes all my “inspiration photos†so that I would have everything in one place. It is attached as a PDF.

I decided not to go with a wedding band, my grandma is having a fit so I think I will use a fake ring during the ceremony!

After doing tons of research, I found that www.netbrides.com had just about the best reputation. I requested a quote and it was $525 LESS then Demetrios!!! It arrived early and fit perfectly!

A friend of mine who is starting to build her portfolio and another friend who is a makeup artist took some bridal portraits for me. I didnâ€t have time to do my hair, so we through it up. Now I know how important it is to find a good style!!

The purse and hanky are the cheap kind from oriental trading :) I was too shopped out! I ordered the hair flower on-sale for $8 from GabbyMac.

Unofficial Bridesmaid Cards

I plan to give each girl a card, with a personal message on the back, along with a flower to wear in her hair at the ceremony and a hotel spa gift certificate at a breakfast I am holding in my hotel room the morning of the wedding.

I ordered the menus and programs free from vistaprint (oversized postcards) , photoshare cards were also free (business cards), as were the unofficial bridesmaids cards (invitation).
