Carlitarenee's Planning Thread - 08/04/09

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I know I am a little early, but I have finished about 90% of my planning. I was bored sitting around on a Sunday afternoon so decided to go ahead and post my thread.

 

First, THANK YOU! to everyone on here. I know I borrowed, stole, tweaked so many ideas from all the wonderfully talented and creative people on this site. There is no way I would have managed it without you all.

 

Well, here it goes....

 

1.Pre-cruise– We sent brochures and 2 luggage tags per person 1 month prior to the cruise.

 

Brochure – I made the template myself using Microsoft Publisher then saved it as a JPEG file so it could be printed at Vistaprint -

Attachment 3825

-Crispy Bacon and Sausage

-We arenâ€t having a traditional cake at our wedding and instead will have 2 kinds of cupcakes: chocolate with chocolate ganache filling and vanilla with key lime filling. We will do the cake cutting ceremony later that night during dinner on the ship with the ships small cake.

 

Wedding Favors: Three Chinese coins for luck – Scott (my FI)and I left for Singapore not long after we got engaged and have been living here for the last year. Our wedding will be the first time we have seen everyone in a year so this is our gift from Singapore to our guests. It will include a description of meaning behind the coins (for prosperity and fortune)

    • Are you looking for the perfect wedding dress? Or thinking of mixing some colors but weren’t sure of which color suits which? this is very memorable movement for every bride. for more ideas you can visit here, blog dot bridal dot pk.
    • The main idea is that you like everything. Be frank with yourself and your girlfriend. Just take and tear off to the fullest, using all permissible means. At the expense of a stripper, I agree, this is a great variant, then to become an obedient husband, have a bachelor party!)
    • I was also in this situation, I was afraid to try. But a friend advised a great site https://escortmannheim.info, where everything is reliable and proven over the years. There you will not go wrong. We went, chose a girl for the evening and enjoy.
