AHR in a few weeks...

Recommended Posts

And I still don't know what to give as favors for the guests!!! I also don't have a solid number of guests yet ... I really have NO idea what to do ... I don't want to do something too expensive, but I want to do something Cuban related as that's where we were married, but I'm running out of ideas!!

 

I was thinking maybe a mini bottle of rum with a starfish decoration and thank-you card with our picture .... does that sound too cheesy??

 

You girls have the best ideas and I know I've been a bit absent lately, but it's SO hard to get back into the swing of things after such an amazing getaway ... LOL yes, it's taken me nearly 2 months to get my head back on straight ... :-p

The bottles of rum sound like a good idea.

 

We got married in Jamaica. I'm doing a palm tree cookie (palm trees were part of our theme) and tied to the bag I am going to attach a postcard printed at VistaPrint explaining we made a donation to the Alzheimer's assoication in memory of our grandmothers.

Definitely in the EXACT same boat. I felt so secure in our DW plans-- but the AHR is a WHOOOOOLE new story.

DH and I were thinking of making copies of our wedding DVD for those that couldn't be there, and pair it up with a cute photo magnet of us. It's a tough one, but I LOVE the idea of the little rum bottles! Very Cuban, very cute.

I LOVE the cookie idea-- too cute! And the donation is a beautiful idea. :)

We did a donation to the Leukemia/Lymphoma society in memory of FIL. We had a table top tiki torch on each table, so we just hung a little sign from each one explaining that.

Thanks for the responses ladies!! It seems my AHR favor dilemma was solved for me. .. I found out a few days ago that my aunt is making the favors with little boxes of candies and starfish and heart charms that can be worn afterwards!

 

And I was unsure about the favor thing at first too ... but it seems that, after talking to a few guests, people see this as a "wedding" even if we don't. So they're going to bring gifts ... so we feel we have to do something for them as well.

 

Now I have to find a dress ... yes 1 1/2 weeks away and I still have nothing to wear .... **panic**

I love the idea of a donation-- any tips on how to go about doing this? How did you execute the signs to explain this to guests? Individual cards, or a sign on the favor table?

I used VistaPrint to create a standard postcard which explained the donation we made in honor of our grandmothers, which I will give to each person.

    • 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.
