Teacherbride/Connie's Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay, so Iâ€ve been home from my wedding for a couple weeks now and Iâ€m finally sitting down to write my planning thread. Thanks to all of you ladies for your help, support, and ideas! I will admit right now that Iâ€m terrible at remembering where I found things so if you see something that was your idea, feel free to take the credit!

 

Here goes…

 

The rings. We had them made by a local designer and I totally love them!

Bridesmaid Dresses – I originally chose some little sundresses by J Crew but was convinced they werenâ€t perfect. We decided to go with these from Davids Bridal, in chocolate brown, and the girls looked SO beautiful in them.

(excuse my hideous tan lines and weird face)

Groomsmen Attire – The boys picked their own outfits from Island Importer. They were comfy and they suited the boys really well.

Groomsmen Shoes – Reef Sandals (They were really cool with a pen and paper holder inside the sandal!)

Resort: Playa Pesquero, Holguin Cuba

A friend of mine got married there last January and every since seeing her photos I’ve been in love with this resort. Everything was wonderful and we had a blast there!

 

Ceremony D̩cor РI really wanted a lot of green and nothing too girly for the arch.

Reception Inspiration – Martha Stewart Pom Poms and Luminaries

I ended up only using the luminaries but I loved how it ended up.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
