I have been stuck on the idea of songs...from the ceremony right through to the reception. I came across this thread yesterday and it was really helpful to me. I was able to start making a list so that I can go over it with my fiance and then let him add songs that he wants too.

THANK YOU!!!  I got the actual template from Alyee Bits, here is the link.  http://www.ayleebits.com/2006/06/10/diy-boarding-pass-save-the-date/  The rest was creativity. I actually had a hard time getting the design narrowed down, I'm persnikity on some things, I'm mortified that my finacee is horrible with a pair of scissors and butchered the magnets but its just my STD's so I didn't overly panic. I don't have a theme per se, I had a color scheme, then looking at other brides and the bright colors, my royal blue and silver were thrown into a pink lime, chocolate sky blue mix with hot pink and purple.  So I guess my theme is just colors at the moment. It'll come together. I'm a scatter brained artist. My actual invites will be passports, I'm not doing those, this is the person I want to go with for those

OH!  With the STD's....what I would have done differently was that I would have planned it better, I have a heat gun and embossing powder that I can't return nor use and didn't need to buy because I had this idea in my head but couldn't find all of the items to pull it off. Go to Michael's and different arts and craft stores and also visit local office supply. I had a terrible time finding the paper and the envelopes so what I intended on being an April 30 deadline turned into a July 25th finish date.  Definitly plan a design, go to your local stores to see what they have, all stores don't carry everything you'll need and then price everything, once you have most of what you need ,GO FOR IT!  Trial and error will play a part

Ok, so I have our STDs.  My fiance's sister designed them.  These pictures are samples from the printer so they're not cut yet.  My fiance and I have chosen the stock and will have them today to mail out this weekend!  I am so excited.  :)  People are already asking about booking so hopefully they will book before our invites go out in January!

OH OH OH!!! OK, So I don't know all of the songs yet, but for the walk, I want Anthony Hamilton's Beautiful Wonderful, here is the youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-gdWHaSZbQ

 

For "our" dance, Anthony Hamilton's The point of it all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyW6ww4U1lM

 

and I'm still trying to figure out what other songs i need...like, father/daughter and I guess I dance with his dad, and he dances with my mom right...how does that work? What other songs do I need.

 

Also, if you listen to Beautiful Wonderful, do you thin I should have my entire party enter with the beginning of that song and we just follow up until its all played through, my mother thinks I need a song just for me and one for the bridal party...but I LOVE THAT SONG! Plus it might be too confusing and if they get it wrong, I'm going to be super mad!

They look great!  I don't have a creative bone in my body, and people kept asking for our information so I ordered basic ones from vista print. We were happy with them. I figure I will be more creative with the invitiations...

 

Speaking of invitations, I have read that the etiquette for destination weddings is to send the save the dates about 6 months ahead of your wedding (I sent mine out a year and a half early to give plenty of notice) and invitations 2 months... I just don't see that being enough time for the people who wait til the last minute to decide if they are going to come or not, or enough notice for my fiance and I to have the final guest list. 

 

When do you all plan to send out invitations?

Awesome!!!  They look fantastic!  I wish I had thought of that idea, it would have saved me a TON of postage to just design a postcard!  I love them! Kudos!

Does anyone have the photographer that the resort recommends, contact info from Adventure photography. I saw someone post that $999 covered pretty much everything and you get the site as well and I'd like to go on ahead and lock it in and talk to these folks if at all possible, and find out what they need in advance.

Here's what we got so far:

 

Groomsman Enter: "I'm Yours" Jason Mraz Acoustic ONLY.  No lyrics

Bridemaids Enter: Trumpets Voluntary Acoustic Guitar

Me: Canon in D Acoustic Guitar

Sand Ceremony: Need a song still... maybe acoustic of What a Wonderful World

Recessional: Acoustic Isreal K's version of Somewhere of the Rainbow.

 

Fiance's dad is a musician so he will most likely be playing our ceremony.

 

First dance: Whatever It Is by Zac Brown Band [for now anyway]

Father Daughter Dance: EITHER "Taking You Home" by Don Henley [we're huge Eagles fans] or "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts

Mother Son Dance: Nooo idea

Parents Dance: I imagine my parents will just dance to their song?  Which is something by Barbara Streisand.
