Christie's (islandbride317) Planning Thread w/ LOTS of Pics! :)

Recommended Posts

Here's a preview of the At-Home Reception on the Chesapeake Bay in Pasadena, Maryland (on Sat., August 14th) planning I have been doing so far (a full planning thread will be coming for that closer to the date):

 

Here is the dress I will be having shorted to just below the first group of ribbons at the knee to wear at the AHR:

Our venue is the Bay Ballroom at Kurtz's Beach -- I wanted something near a large body of water, so the guests can feel like they're having a mini-getaway (please excuse the rainy day the pics were taken):

 

View of behind the head table:

Here is the cake I will be having, made by Fiona's Cakes and Pastries in Maryland:

* (2) tiers will be Tiramisu cake with mascarpone filling

* (1) tier will be classic red velvet cake with cream cheese filling

* (1) tier will be white cake with chocolate ganache and fresh strawberry filling

* The entire cake will be covered in Italian Meringue buttercream -- yum!

 

Again, a full Planning Thread for my AHR will be up closer to August!

 

HUGE HUGS AND THANKS to EVERYONE here on the most amazing wedding forum out there -- I honestly couldn't have done it without you all!

 

Now, here we come, JAMAICA!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
