trayce2222's planning thread**a Zillion Pics and Looong!!**

Recommended Posts

Itâ€s now my turn to post my planning thread! I have been on BDW since last August and I have looked forward to seeing all the new planning threads as theyâ€re posted. I think I have borrowed, was inspired or stolen ideas from each one! Thanks to everyone before me for all of the great ideas and templates!!!!

I was going to put this together 2 weeks ago before we left on 4/29 to the Riviera Maya, but all the craziness broke out about the pig poison in Mexico and I got side-tracked….anyway, we got back Thursday night and had the time of our lives (I will be posting my review and pics soon!), so I thought I would get this posted now! I will also post any templates I have in case they can help another bride!!!

Here we go……

The evening Rich proposed. He took me to Bobâ€s Steak & Chops House in a limo. After a great dinner, he got down on bended knee and asked me the best question ever!

We both knew we wanted to get married on the beach from the very beginning. In fact, I had this huge mural painted on one of our walls and every time I walked down the hallway and saw it, I envisioned me walking down the aisle on the sand. When we got home last night and I saw it, I had the biggest smile ever on my face knowing our dream wedding came true!

But at our rehearsal dinner, my dad gave me this bracelet and I wore it instead. He had it made and had a cross that was his motherâ€s added to it. Our wedding date wouldâ€ve been her 95th birthday if she was still living. It means so much to me to have this special piece!

Guest Book Alternative: Guest Book Quilt……instead of the traditional guest book, my mom wanted all the guests to write special messages to us of pieces of fabric that she is going to use to make us a quilt. I put an envelope with the instructions (printed at Vista Print), pen, supplies, etc in each OOT bag and then the guests brought the finished pieces of fabric to the reception, where my mom collected them. I canâ€t wait to see the finished product!!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
