    With exactly one month from today, I am finally going to start my planning thread. Here is what I came up with so far.

    First thing I did after we got engaged was found a dress (If you cant see these I will upload bigger ones later)

    Then off to the planning part of the event what were the bridesmaids going to wear. I had an issue because some of my bridesmaids are small and then my matron of honor will be 7 months pregnant so I found something that would work for everone!

    Once I found the dresses we decided on having the color theme of dark pink and orange. So I came up with these invitations that I had printed at our local print shop and ended up being very cheap to make

    (I will post it later, did not realize it was sooo late I need to get to work!)

        Ok I am back with more of my stuff. So I just got done with my first fitting so I can actually post a picture of my dress that is big enough to see.

        Here are the invitations I had made at my local print shop and saved a ton of money!

        here are the pre wedding brochures I made (thanks to this forum, I love to cut and paste!)

        Here are the centerpieces that I want. I will be taking down the candleholders and the florist will add the flowers.

        I am still waiting on my OOT bags to get here. Instead of using a real bag, I decided to get some small black soft coolers that hold a six pack of beer perfectly. They are getting embroidered and I hope to get them soon! I will post a picture when it comes.

        My flower girl dresses are still a mystery. I have already sent back two different styles because I can not find one that fits the event. The flower boys will have orange guayabera shirts (once I dye them) and khakis I will post a picture of those later as well.

        That is it for now, I will be back with more goodies! Thanks for all of your help during this process!
