I thought Nicole had a great idea posting all of her wedding info in one place,

so I thought Iâ€d post a similar thread of all my planning info and ideas…

 

Starting from the beginning…

 

Invitations, STDâ€s & Monograms

 

For our Save the Dates, we sent picture frames and an invitation:

After January 1st, we sent a reminder to our guests to book their travel and

get a passport if they hadnâ€t already done so. Hereâ€s the postcard:

Invitations were assembled using miniature brads from Hobby Lobby

 

The “S†monogram on the outside ribbon belly band is simply the Capital S

from the font Goudy Initialen. Fonts used for my invitations are Allegro & BD

Merced. Fonts available for download from dafont.com.

 

I had monograms made early in my planning.

These are from Creative Montage: Creative Montage... For Today's Sophisticated Bride

This is my dress that I originally bought for the wedding, but decided was too

informal. This is now going to be for my “trash the dress†session the day

after the wedding. Sorry about the pics, they are pre-alteration. The dress

was HUGE on me and was a $900 Venus dress found brand new at a thrift

store when a local bridal shop donated their samples…

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • 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!
