Autumn's Planning Thread!!!

Recommended Posts

Well here we go… one of my favorite parts of BDW and I canâ€t believe it is actually my turn to post a planning thread. The past year has absolutely flown by and I truly wouldnâ€t have half of the cute ideas if it wasnâ€t for this forum. Special shout outs to the ladies of the Dreams PV thread, December 2009 thread and the SB! Luv yâ€all!

 

 

So the engagement happened while we were gallivanting around Europe on a Contiki trip last New Years. 2 other couples had gotten engaged on the trip and everyone was giving Brett a hard time about when we he was going to pop the question. He was so adamant that he had no intentions of ever being married that he actually brought me to tears. Well then on New Years in front of the Eiffel Tower he popped the question. Crazy boy :o)

I originally wanted a wedding in Texas where I grew up and where my family is, but couldnâ€t find anything within a reasonable budget that felt like us. So we opted for a DW.

I want gerbera daisies, lilies and green poms as the flowers. I have the pearls that my mom wrapped on her bouquet as well as 3 memory frames of my 2 grandmas and one great aunt. They really were a big part of my life and it feels great to know they will be there watching.

We leave in the morning and there is no way I am sleeping tonight. There are probably a ton of items that I am leaving out, but Iâ€m just so excited to see all of my friends and family and finally marry my best friend. If you made it to the end I hope you enjoyed my planning thread :o)

    • 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.
