FoxyBride's Past Due Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

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: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...226#post981132

We decided to get married in Vegas since I live here (part-time now since Iâ€m back & forth between his place in Cleveland and here) and because he knows 1 GILLION people and our wedding would be astronomical in size. People would literally just be “dropping by.†Thatâ€s how his friends are. I really wanted an outdoor spot so we settled on The Flamingo Hotel on the West Lawn since they have reasonable prices and pretty grounds.

We are then doing a reception in one of the Panorama Suites at Planet Hollywood. We are having it catered by “Big Mamaâ€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 itâ€s not like we havenâ€t been on it a ton and the M is brand new. Plus, I found an awesome rate.

I DIYâ€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.

Wedding Attire

My wedding dress went through quite a transformation which a post here:

The final product looks like this:

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 Shoes, Clothing, Handbags, Sunglasses | Zappos.com Free Shipping

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 Studiosuits.com, Custom Suits | Designer Suits in Natural Linen. He will wear white shirt & orange tie.

I found the BMs dresses are Marshalls. They had to do a little alterations since Marshall’s isn’t exactly cut to order, but they all worked out!

The groomsmen also order suits from Studiosuits.com, Custom Suits | Designer Suits but they will be wearing light beige. I purchase tie/hanky/cufflink sets from eBay to go with the suits and they also will be wearing white shirts.

I'm a University of Michigan alum but I'm marrying the enemy, an Ohioan. I thought this would be cute for him to find under the dress. I ordered it on eBay.

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.
