Stefnicole's planning thread *PICS*!

Recommended Posts

I canâ€t believe itâ€s already time to go. This year has gone by so fast. We got engaged on March 28, 2008 (the day before my birthday!) and Iâ€ve been stalking this forum ever since!

 

The Rings:

My FI picked out my engagement ring all by himself without any imput from me. Iâ€m so proud of him!

We got my ring and band at Shane Co, and I got his ring off of ebay.

Invites:

I DIYed our STDâ€s. I had a lot of fun making them, but they were pretty time consuming.

We never did actual invites, since so few guests indicated that they would come. Instead we sent out invites for our AHR. I designed them myself and had them printed by a local printing company. Very simple, and small enough that I could fit 4 to a page and save on paper.

My Attire:

I didnâ€t really want a fancy dress, or to spend a lot of money on one. So I found this sundress at JC Penney—their American Living collection for $60. I love it! I had to get it altered a bit, the straps kept falling down!

Donâ€t mind the face. Bryce thought it was funny to keep taking pictures without giving me time to prepare.

 

My DIY barefoot sandals. I got the beads and supplies at either Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I canâ€t quite remember which.

If the sand is too hot, then Iâ€ll just wear my backup flip flops from Old Navy.

I already had the jewely. The pearls were a gift from years ago and I got the necklace from Overstock.com about 2 years ago—it was a promotion where I only had to pay shipping ($2.95).

Iâ€m getting orchids or plumeria (I havenâ€t decided which yet) from the florist who is doing my bouquet. But, in case that didnâ€t work out, I have a backup hair flower from Etsy seller starzselection.

Up, or down? I still havenâ€t decided!

 

My DIY iron-on bride tank and hoodie. I got the iron-ons at Michaels (only $1!) and the clothing at Old Navy.

FIâ€s Attire:

We got FIâ€s shirt from the Buckle, and his pants from Von Maur. He already owned the flip flops. Sorry no pic of the pants or flip flops. Theyâ€re just drawstring linen and Reef flip-flops.

Flowers:

Bouquet inspiration pics. These are from someone on here, but I donâ€t know who. So, whoever it is, thank you!

I’m also having the florist make some plumeria leis for all of our guests. They should look something like this:

Guestbook:

I admit I stole this from Carly. What can I say? I love this idea! I got the book from Ten Thousand Villages. We’re going to use this at our AHR as well.

We’re going to be married on the south shore of Kauai, on Shipwreck Beach.

Gifts:

BD book:

I had some BD pics taken last month, and I was so nervous prior. My photographer, Tara, was great and she helped me relax. Her are some of the pics:

Necklaces:

Early on in the planning, I made these very simple necklaces for my mom and my FMIL. Now, my FMIL isn’t going to be going to the wedding (health reasons) but I still plan to give her the necklace before we go.

OOT:

We decided not to give OOT bags to our guests. We’re only having 6 guests, and everyone is staying in a different place. We’re giving everyone leis right before the wedding (see above), and for the women sarongs, and the men, cigars. We bought the cigars here in town, but I’ll wait to get the sarongs on the island.

 

I think that’s all. We leave tomorrow! Thanks to everyone on the forum for being so creative and supportive!
