      What resort did you decide on Leigh?

       

      This site is so addicting its crazy especially when you are just starting your planning. its easy to get carried away with all the great ideas on this forum LOL

       

      I only have like 5 months left so i am on a serious crunch to lose some weight and tone up and get my last planning done. I'm gettting there but struggling with the eating healthy part LOL I LOVE food but i only want to lose like 10 to 15 pounds or tone a bunch which might sound like a lot but its only 3 to 4 pounds a month so its reasonable :) i've been so good this week *patting myself on the shoulder) i went to the gym, did a yoga class, walked a bunch so hopefully that will make up for my little cheating with food here and there LOL

       

      if anyone has tips or tricks PLEASE SHARE :)

                    Thats totally awesome and i am totally game! it would be nice for sure if we lived closer, always nice to have someone else to plan with....and shop with! I LOVE LOVE shopping! you should see my closet LOL  Its nice to help each other with ideas, tips tricks and have just been great support for each other so I would love to be able to share with you as well. :) :)

                     

                    can you send me a link to the lady for the barefoot sandals? That would be awesome! in all the things on this site i have actually never explored the wiki part of it (shame on me!) lol

                     

                    my colors are turquoise, fuschia and lime green :) we are so close in colors. So we could definitely share stuff and bounce ideas off each other. this is my color swatch

                      WOW! Your invites look fantastic!! I knew I wouldn't have the patience to DIY them. I'm waiting for the final digital proof, then I can sign off on those. Holy Crap!! I have less than 3 months to go..eeek...101 days, and my invites aren't even out yet?! Still seems like so much to do :( It's ok, whatever isn't done, isn't done. I have 2 friends on mat leave also, they should be able to help me out a bit. Oooooo...times-a-flyin'!! Good luck Janet with your planning, and Canadiangirl, I fear for you, all of that time to plan.....opens up way too many options for you! But have fun, and enjoy your baby!

                      I am bringing most of my decoration. I am using one of the resorts package which is aqua color so its very close to my turquoise so that was perfect and then i am adding to it

                      This was my ceremony inspiration but with my colors and prob not the flowers up the aisle (would cost a fortune)

                      inspiration.jpg
                       

                      My welcome brochure will be tagged (dont know how just yet as my final design isnt done yet) to a bag (also tbd lol)

                      it will have

                      -welcome letter

                      -itinerary

                      -photo share info

                      -Guest Information

                      -Spanish Translations

                      -i've made some personalized crosswords and puzzles that i will include as well

                      Still a work in progress and the design options are in the works. I have some fun ideas. I can put some stuff together and send it to you or share templates if you'd like :)

                       

                      I did my invites myself and it took about a week LOL mine were pretty elaborate though, i even made the pockets myself. here is a pic :) (sorry these are the work in progress pics so they are not great but i dont have my other pics on this computer)  i used different liner for themailing and return envelopes,  ribbons to tie them up and different flower on the inside but everything else was the same for every invite.
