Cassie's Planning Thread!

Recommended Posts

Wow, how is it already my turn? A big thanks to Tammy and all the mods for creating and running such an amazing forum! It has been so incredibly helpful to me. Thereâ€s no way I could have put this wedding together so quickly if it werenâ€t for all of you!

 

Also a special thanks to all my shout box girls! I never could have imagined that through the process of planning a wedding that I would have made so many amazing new friends!

WEDDING VENUE

 

Iâ€d known for quite awhile that I wanted to do a destination wedding. I have a large immediate family (oldest of 6 kids) and it was really important for me that they be there, so we decided on California to keep the costs down for them a bit. After a long search we decided on the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes. I fell in love with the view!

The setup will be something similar to this:

With these pomanders on each side (bad picture but you get the idea)

And the dinner will be in the Center with the dance out on the patio.

WILL YOU BE MY MAID OF HONOR CARDS

 

My first DIY project was these cards I made through zazzle.com and sent them to my two maid of honors.

MONOGRAM & INSPIRATION BOARD

 

I decided on clover green and fuchsia pink for our colors. So the next projects I worked on were my monogram and inspiration boards. These were so much fun to make!

SAVE THE DATE

 

I had originally wanted to send STD postcards, but once we moved the wedding date up, it didnâ€t make sense to spend the money there when I would need to get started on invites shortly after. So we decided to send an e-STD through pingg.com. The site was really easy to use and I was really glad we used it.

INVITATIONS

 

I made pocketfold invites from Cards & Pockets. I got the envelope liners from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon from Joanns. The rsvp postcards were from Vista Print.

Rehearsal Dress and shoes:

 

I found a dress online that I loved but it was way out of my budget. So I had a replica custom made on etsy. I absolutely loved her design but had some issues with it not fitting right. So I brought it along to one of my dress fittings and had her fix it. I think it could still use some fitting in the waist, but this is going to have to do.

The shoes are from GoJane.com

FIANCEâ€S WEDDING ATTIRE

 

His outfit was waaaay harder to put together than mine. For awhile there I thought we were going to end up having the pantless groom! And you can tell he was not a fan of putting everything on just for a pic for my planning thread, too bad!

BEST MAN

 

I donâ€t have a pic of him but heâ€s just wearing a white shirt, tan pants and then we got him the Reef Fanning Ultimate flip flops with the bottle opener on the bottom. Heâ€s going to love them!

RING BEARER & VIEs (Very Important Extras)

 

I have four brothers and wanted to include them all in the wedding. The youngest is my ring bearer, the oldest is Andrewâ€s best man, so I had to think of a way to include the middle two. After doing some searching online I found the title “Very Important Extras†and they liked that, so thatâ€s what weâ€re going with. I wanted them all to be dressed the same too so they would all feel as important.

 

Their shirts and pants are from Old Navy and their flip flops are from Payless.

And my “bling†bearer will carry the ring shell:

FLOWERS

 

I went the DIY route for my flowers. I ordered real touch pink cymbidium orchids and mini calla lilies from afloral.com. I used a mix of the orchids and lilies in my bouquet and then used just the lilies for my two maid of honors bouquets and the rest of the lilies for the boutonnieres.

BD BOOK

 

I hadnâ€t originally planned on having professional boudoir pics taken, I was actually going to attempt to DIY them but when the SB girls were going on our trip to Chicago, the wonderful Linds came up with the idea to have a marathon BD shoot with the amazing TammyB. So I decided I couldnâ€t pass that up and am SO glad I did it! I definitely recommend doing this. Thereâ€s no way my pics would have turned out even close to what these are. I love them!

 

Here is my book cover:

PROGRAMS

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
