    I had this done before I left but there was a few things I wanted to add but of course in the days leading up to the wedding, I got too busy to do them! Oh well, I hope this helps someone anyway!

    We were engaged on July 3rd, 2008. I posted that story here: Click the image to open in full size.

    We are then doing a reception in one of the Panorama Suites at Planet Hollywood. We are having it catered by “Big Mama’s Soul Food” since we wanted people to eat REAL food at the reception and not the usual wedding fare.

    We are then doing a “mini-moon” at the M Resort in Vegas. We thought it would be good to get away from the strip since it’s not like we haven’t been on it a ton and the M is brand new. Plus, I found an awesome rate.

    I DIY’d our STDs and our invitations since I do graphic design work on the side. It ended up saving us a ton over professional work so I think it was worth it.

        I purchased a simple 1 tier ivory veil from ebay that has Swarovski crystals throughout it.
        It took me forever to find shoes but I finally stumbled upon these at Click the image to open in full size.

        No pics of FI’s suit because he decided since he doesn’t get to see my dress, I can’t see his suit! We ordered a custom linen suit though from Click the image to open in full size.

          The groomsmen also order suits from Click the image to open in full size.
          Flowers
          A bouquet comes with the package we are ordering at the Flamingo but I DIY’d some silk bouquets for the BMs , the boutonnieres for the GMs and corsages for the mom’s.

          I ended up doing the OOT bags once I got to the hotel and I never got a pic of them but I made water bottle labels from a 2 x 4 address labels I had lying around and included a bottle of water, 944 magazine, a map of the strip, playing cards, AXE cologne samples, luggage tags and a welcome brochure.
