The shoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted pink shoes so badly but I had such a hard time finding them. They were either way too high or the wrong colour or extremely expensive.  I finally found them at Sears. Do you believe it? The heel was exactly what I was looking for, the colour matched and there was even a bit of bling on top – added bonus. Not only were they perfect, they were only $30.00.   Even though nobody was really going to see the bottoms, I still put the I DO stickers on them. I showed a few people but it was fun just for me to know that the stickers were there.  I also had a pair of pink sparkly  flip flops from Target that I wore to the beach and for the TTD.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OOT bags

My OOT bags were so fun to make and they were a big hit! I was so glad! Everyone was so impressed with the effort as well as the stuff that was in it. Everything was in a large waterproof beachbag with a name tag on the handle. The single guys had a black duffel bag. I had everything in it divided into sections with tags on them (I got the idea and the template for the tags and the first aid labels from this site too – thanks again)

To Have and to Hold (your stuff at the beach) - a smaller beach bag

To love and to cherish (our family and friends) - a welcome book that we made and had printed (this made everyone very happy because we included a "meet the guests" section with a photo and little write up about each person)

In sickness and in health - first aid kit, aloe, hand sanitizer, kleenex

In good times and in bad- deck of cards, notepads, pens, Shout wipes, glow sticks and glow bracelets, wet ones and a few mints.

For richer or for poorer-scratch tickets (these were a nice surprise for everyone)

 We also had a few extra things in the bags - Bubba Kegs, keycard/tip holder, lanyards with waterproof beach carriers (for money etc) . these were also used everyday... the little plastic tip holder was used at the pool and the beach -and the bigger ones were used on excursions. 

Honestly, the biggest hits were the Bubba Kegs (they all had a Canada flag on them and I attached little name tags on them - so we all had our own and we were obviously a group). They were a bit more expensive but worth every penny.  We all used them everyday. It was a good way for us to get good service too - we tipped the bartender with a pretty big tip at the beginniing of the day, then asked him to take care of anyone with the mugs. (we gave other tips too but it was a great way to get the bartenders to pay attention to us)

Everything else got used except maybe the kleenex and the notepads (but both were from the dollar store so not a big deal) . A few people used cards - we played drinking games with them. We all wore our glowsticks and glow bracelets to the beach BBQ. The Shout was a great thing to include. Everyone used their's including my hubby who got something on his shirt a few minutes before the wedding :)  The aloe was used for sure and the sanitizer was in everyone's beach bag throughout the week - especially when we went on excursions

I used the instructions on this site and materials from dazzlingdesignsinc.com to make t shirts  for my 2 girls that said “bridesmaid†and 1  for my mom “mother of the bride†and 1 for myself “bride) .  I also made underwear that said my new last name  to wear under my wedding dress. J  Sorry the pictures didnâ€t work out. 

 

 

Other stuff   J

We sent out a pre-trip letter that included a packing list and other trip information. We also sent out luggage tags- aqua flip flops for the girls and plain red ones for the guys.

We bought the sand ceremony frame from www.urbane.ca  It was pretty cheap and shipped very quickly.

My blue starfish bouquet jewel was from http://www.bouquetjewels.com

My garter was from Etsy made by PetereneDesign. This was custom made for me since my husband is a huge 60â€s Batman fan. She was amazing! She worked very hard to get it all just right. Hubby loved it – and the photographer even made sure to take photos of it.

Hair  stuff from Etsy:  White stephanotis hairpins from lovelygifts.  Crystal hairpins from lynneosbornedesigns.

 

I got a fingertip length veil from Venusveils on Ebay. It was only about $20.00 and it was very nice. I didnâ€t wear it for the ceremony but I wanted to have some for the pictures… I love the way they look in the wind.

 

I got the idea for the socks – for hubbyâ€s cold feet – from this site too. He loved it!

 

 

 

Photoshare cards, welcome card and  timeline cards – templates from this site too. (Thanks)

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
