Butterfly4kathy2's Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

**update 8/12/10**

 

It was pointed out to me that I never actually listed anything about the wedding location that we got married at. I will update that at the bottom of the page!**

 

Ok! I am WAY beyond excited to post this! I love love LOOOVE reading everyone else's! They were so helpful and so much fun. I rememeber thinking that I was never going to be done planning, so it is amazing to actually be at this point!!

Engagement:

Kelly had told me for a number of years that he didnt know if he ever wanted to get married. He went on and on about it so much that I really started to believe that he was telling the truth and that it wasnt just his nerves talking. So when we went to Jamaica in November I never gave anything a 2nd thought. Well the 2nd day we were there I spent WAY too much time in the sun and got pretty bad heat stroke and was sick for 2 nights of our trip. All I wanted to do was lay in bed. He kept asking if I was feeling good enough to take a walk on the beach, and I just didnt. So on the 4th night of our trip I was feeling better, we went out for a great dinner and then - FINALLY - the walk on the beach. We were standing in front on the water and it was really dark. He said "Hey, do you think the camera would work right now?" and I said "Yeah, it should" and I turned around and he was down on one knee!!! I was SHOCKED, but it was so dark that I couldn't see the ring. Not that it mattered. So of course I said yes! And then he told me about how he had been wanting to ask me for days but I was too sick! LOL I am glad he didnt lose his nerve!

(the night we got engaged.. this is at dinner before it happend. If you look at his beard you can see that he got so nervous waiting to ask me that he pulled some of the hair out and there is a spot there! LOL)

The Rings:
Here is my ring with my wedding band. It is equal to 1 carat and is a green tourmaline with 4 diamonds on each side.

Invites:

I ordered simple invites through Zazzle. And I sent them out WAY too early.. when I should have done STDs first. It worked out just fine.. but I learned my lesson there lol

**update**

 

We got married at Las Caletas (through Vallarta Adventures) which is a private beach that you can only get to by boat. It was AMAZING!

So worth checking out if you are looking for a more private location which is EXACTLY what we wanted

Kelly suit was ordered from Studio Suits! It turned out AWESOME! But we got some of the measurements wrong and got the suit too late so we rented the groomsmens suits from a local place
