Stephanie (RAENJAY) Random Planning (Pic Heavy)

Recommended Posts

I loved it when Nicole (I think) and Sarah shared all their random planning ideas with everybody, so I thought I would do the same.


I guess I should say a little about what I learned - my Xyron Xyron | Create-A-Sticker and the double sided red stick tape are my new best friends. I love that stuff. If you plan on doing a lot of DIY paper products invest in a GREAT paper trimmer - it's worth it in the end, unstraight cuts drive me insane. Also, buy double of everything. Really. I purchased 48 pieces of the Cool Carribbean paper from Stampin' Up, had thought I would need only about 23 pages. I have 1 left. REALLY. Prioritize. I made a list of all my DIY projects, and started with the most important. Guess what, I'm going to get everything done. But have a plan before you begin.


Don't sweat the small stuff, I know it's hard to say, but really nobody is going to know that you wanted to have sparklers but didn't get them ordered in time. Most of all, remember, it's you and your fiance's day ~ make it special for you, not everybody else.





Be warned, it's going to be pic heavy, and this isn't everything. I'll post each photo in it's own "reply"....

I got the wording for the welcome letter from a Knottie (mrspresley, I think)... Here it is:

Dear Family and Friends,


The wait is finally over! Welcome to sun, sand and relaxation… welcome to Cabo San Lucas! We are both so happy and feel very blessed to be able to have our wedding here at the RIU Palace! We are especially honored that you have traveled this far to be a part of our marriage celebration.


Included is some information to help make your stay a wonderful experience. Enjoy the "goodies" included in this welcome bag. They are just a small token of our appreciation.


Please make the most of your stay here in Cabo San Lucas. We hope that the next few days will be as memorable for you as it will be for us.


With Love and Appreciation,


Stephanie & Jason

I really like the idea of everybody sharing their photos so I'm asking them with this card. Here is the wording:


See & Share Your Photos

If you are taking digital photos this weekend, wouldnâ€t

you be so kind as to share them with us and others? Log

onto Kodakgallery.com*: Print, Store & Share Digital Photos—Order Kodak Prints, Photo Books, Cards & Gifts & create an album for your photos.

Donâ€t have a digital camera? Ask for a CD of your photos,

which can then be uploaded to an online album.

We can then link them to our wedding website

for everyone to see.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
