April 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

Have you thought about candy? I saw a bride here use mints as a favor and she made a wrapper for them that said, "Mint to be"... I thought it was cute and am considering doing this. That way you won't have to lug down heavy stuff and in my case, wonder if anyone's ever going to use whatever it is I give them.

call me crazy, but i'm not even doing a "table favor" at the reception. most of my guests aren't paying for their trips so i don't feel like i owe them a TON, but based on what i know from when my friends and family members have gotten married, a lot of time and money is spent coming up with something and then people either forget them on the table or don't end up using them. i think it you spent that extra money on the OOT bags. if you really want to have something on the tables though, i like tonya's idea. nice and simple and cute!

 

so i had my reception plans all changed and everything and i just found out that someone had requested that date before me and the event coordinator didn't realize it. now i have to keep my fingers crossed until tomorrow that either the people don't respond to her or they want a day cruise and not a sunset one! i hate being nervous about this after i got all excited about it!!

That's too bad about the reception plans. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, too. This wedding planning can be quite the roller coaster sometimes, can't it?

I'm not doing any table favors. I am putting together oot bags for everyone. I have about 33 people going so far which comes out to 23 bags (1 per couple and 1 per single) so it's still manageable for me to bring everything down. I am only filling the bags with small/light things.

I'm not planning to do table favors either. I think I might do fans for the ceremony and then the OOT bags and that will be enough.

Thanks guys for your opinions about the table favours. You guys are just so helpful and amazing!!!

I think I really like the 'mint to be' idea. I just have to look for it now, so if any of you find the thread, pls pass it along.

I have the fans in the OOT bag for the woman. I actually was walking on St-Hubert street and walk into a chiness (those cool stores) and found the fans on sale for $.99

Just keep looking Jodi, you'll find them somewhere. Where exactly are you? I have a friend in Ireland (his actually coming to the wedding) if your close enough I am sure he can look into it for me to find you certine things (his pretty good and helpful like that,his my bro from a different mother/father lol)

 

Erin, I am so sorry to hear about the reception plans, this is for Cuba right? Would you have a plan B?

thank you all for your good thoughts.. it must have worked because we officially got the date for the catamaran!! the amazing event coordinator asked the other group if they would switch to a different day because she was trying to accomodate a wedding reception!! i am beyond thrilled now! i can finally take a deep breath and enjoy it without worrying about jinxing it!

 

tracy.. i found these on the knot: Wedding Favors - Wedding Favor - Wedding Favors Ideas)

 

they have a whole bunch of different options.. just search for "mints" in the wedding store. i'm not sure how their shipping to canada is, but they have great deals there and you can completely personalize the little container!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
