Hi Ladies!

 

I just wanted to write this to share exactly what I'm doing for my wedding/reception. I'm hoping I can share my ideas and also ask your opinon and get more ideas with everyones help! I will say I never thought I would be a DIY bride but since I can't really afford a theme I'm making my own. (BTW - I'm not very talented in designing and putting things together so any advice I would appreciate)

 

I'm getting married at Sandals, Negril July 31st, 2010 at 2PM. I have 34 guests. I am doing a 3 hour reception that evening. I am keeping the Beautiful Beginnings (BB) Theme.

 

I have verified with my Travel Agent and Wedding Coordinator that I can bring my own decorations for the wedding and reception. They will set up all my decorations. It's $250 to set up for the wedding and $250 to set up for the reception.

 

I am bringing my own bouquet of seashells. I'm still looking for one for my bridesmaids that will look ok with this one. (What do you think?)

 

Etsy :: Classic and Simple Hinewai Seashell Bridal Bouquet

 

Here are the links to my dress and my bridesmaids dresses. They have 2 dresses they can pick from in the color Sweet Thistle (Lavendar)

 

My dress

 

Athena - by Maggie Sottero

 

The bridesmaids dresses

 

Wedding's dresses - silk chiffon - Silk chiffon Taryn dress - J.Crew

 

Wedding's dresses - silk chiffon - Silk chiffon Sophia dress - J.Crew

 

We will be getting married on the beach with no shoes and flowers in our hair.

 

I haven't decided if I want to pay the $250 to decorate the ceremony or not. But if so this is what I'll do.

 

Bring seashells to line the aisle. I've found these on ebay and other places for pretty cheap.

 

Bring these flowers for the aisle.

Violet Je t'aime Rose Petals Freeze Dried TOSS & WEDDING AISLE BLEND 5 cups for $12

 

Put this type of bows on the chairs (only organza bows, not chair covers).

To keep the guests cool we are getting these fans and parasols.

 

Paper Parasols, Asian Wedding Favors, Bamboo Gifts

 

Personalized Silk Fans, Silk Wedding Fans

 

For the reception we have a local seashell store here and I'm going to pick out some bigger seashells and place them on the tables.

 

I also loved the paper lanterns in the Flutter of Romance theme and am bringing my own in 3 shades of purple.

 

50+ Colors of Paper Lanterns - Luna Bazaar

 

Next this site is awesome for decorations and very cheap.

 

Wedding Decorations

 

I'll also be adding some other things such as menus and thank you gifts.

 

We are also doing a Welcome to our Wedding Weekend gift bag with sunscreen, bug spray, chap stick, etc. and passing those out at the rehersal dinner. But we have changed our rehearsal dinner to be a welcome party.

 

I have added pictures of our wedding invitations. I got them from Ana De Roux.

 

Thanks for reading! :)

The fans that I posted they actually engrave your names on it, or whatever you want it to say. Here's a link to my dress.

Here's a link to the lady's website that did my invitations. She also makes invitations that look like boarding passes.

I absolutely LOVE your bouquet and your dress is beautiful. Your invites look very similar to mine as Ana did mine too in the same color :)

 

I think you plan looks and sound great and cohesive! Congrats.

O, that's even better that they engrave the names on there for you. Maybe i'll have to change to those fans :)
