    Okay, so I’ve been home from my wedding for a couple weeks now and I’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 I’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 weren’t perfect. We decided to go with these from Davids Bridal, in chocolate brown, and the girls looked SO beautiful in them.

    Necklace and bracelet – I made myself. I had a necklace made but changed my mind at the last minute.

    Veil and sparkly headband

    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 D©cor – I 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.

      Postcard Invitations – These were made by a friend of ours and the photo was taken by Nathaniel from BDW
