April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Today has been a very busy day for me!  I've been able to cut out and apply all of my labels for my first aid kits.  I also created the labels (and cut them out) for the other bag of stuff (chapstick, shout wipes, lint rollers, crystal light, etc.) I'll be putting in.  Now I just have to finish buying the stuff, and I can put all of that together!  I just have to buy the actual bags we'll be using too!  I plan on taking a picture tomorrow night and posting it!  It feels good to accomplish things! 

 

I also ordered my sandals that I'll be wearing with my dress!  Brandy, I went ahead and got the tangerine Nina sandals.  It says that they should ship by 1/25/11, so when I get them, I'll take a picture and post it.

 

Now, I just need to talk to the WC about our welcome dinner and dinner for the wedding!!

 

Oh, and welcome Kat!!

Welcome Kat.

 

I am having the same issue with parents gifts. Have no clue what to buy them.

 

It's feels awesome getting some things checked off the list. I ordered the starfish for my placecards and centerpieces yesterday and will order my pens from discountpens.com tomorrow. They are having a 25% off sale till January 5th.

 

Feeling a little stressed that it's so close and I have soooo much still to do for the wedding, the honeymoon and the ahr. yikes!

 

Starting the weight loss attempt tomorrow and for the next 3months.

I decided to go with the Tangerine Nina flip flops.  I think my three girls are going to go with the same ones, I'm not sure yet though.

One thing that I did for my parents is upgraded their room at the resort.  It's not a major thing, but they will certainly be in a much nicer room than they originally planned.  I know they won't be spending a lot of time there, but it's just a nice added piece! 

I still plan to do something else for them, I'm just not sure what yet.  I was thinking about buying them a massage package at the resort, but I haven't really decided on that for sure.

 

 

So, last night it kind of hit me... I'm getting married this year.  I know that may sound silly, but I've been able to say, "Oh, it's next year" or "Oh, it's still quite a few months away."  But, about a month ago, FI and I decided we were going to legally get married early in 2011.  Last night we were laying in bed and he says, "Tomorrow you should look into what we need to do to get our marriage license and then I'll contact the Justice of the Peace and get that taken care of."  It's going to feel weird being married, but having no wedding.  I didn't think it would be a big deal to me because it's not going to be anything major...just have the guy come over, we say our thing and BAM! we're married!  I'm pretty sure he'd like to do it by the end of January!

So here are some pictures of my bouquets that I made. Do you ladies think I should add more color? Our colors are orange and fuchsia.

Thanks - It was a lot easier than I expected. Now I just have to work on the boutonnieres and corsages. Then it will be onto the next project. I also managed to add some color to my crinoline over the holidays. I'm still not sure if I should dye the whole thing.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
