~~~Mel's Planning Thread~~~

Recommended Posts

I realize i am alittle early in writing up my planning thread, but i'm going to be crazy busy from now up until the day we leave for Cancun, so I figured i'd squeeze it in here. Firstly, I'd like to thank all of my fellow BDWers for all the help & inspiration it took to make everything come together. I wouldn't have come up with any of these ideas without all of you guys :)

 

My FI & I have been together for 7 years & have two wonderful little kids together. Hailey is 4 & Raiden is 2. We got engaged 2 years ago on a trip to Kelowna, British Columbia. It was a beautiful setting...sunset overlooking the mountains. He got down on one knee & asked. I of course, said "yes!" So we leave in 21 days!!!!!

 

 

This is right before he asked...

We chose Dreams Cancun to hold the wedding because of the beautiful location of the gazebo. This is a pic of the old gazebo, but the view is awesome.

My engagement & wedding band. FI's isn't in yet...

My Dress...Paloma Blanca

BM Dresses...I chose these because they are so casual & can be worn in so many different ways.(Elan Convertible)

Flip Flops for BMs from Aldo. The bottom of them are black not that nude color. My shoes are the same but fuschia...I'm not a heels girl lol

My garter belt... FI & I are big Flames fans :)

A friend of mine makes wedding cakes professionally & is doing our cake topper. This is the inspiration & the jersey & beer will remain the same but hopefully the people will look alittle more like us.

My DIY invites

My BM tanks for the stagette we will be having in Cancun...I ordered them from www.bridalpartytees.com  They are located in the States & i'm in Calgary. I ordered them on a Thursday, got an email that they were done & shipped out the next day (Friday) & recieved them by FedEx on Monday. The COD charge was only $12.00....best place ever!!!!!! My shirt is pretty much the same...it says Badass Bride-To-Be & has a pink skull & crossbone instead of the woman....

Another shot of the bags so you can see the actual bag better. What a steal $2 at Dollarama & they are perfect for a beach bag!!

My maracas from Amols. I have to say I love them. The tag attached says "Shake for a kiss" & I got the idea, of course, from a fellow BDWer. Amols was awesome, I emailed them telling them I only needed pink & orange for my wedding & that's what i got.

My fans for the ceremony. I bought the Ivory Silk Fans from Michaels & wrapped fuschia ribbon around them with a little heart charm that says "Love"

OOps...almost forgot my hair inspiration...Love this :)

The FI & Groomsmen outfit is bought but i don't have pics of it...just white short sleeve, button down shirts & biege pants with Quiksilver sandals...the basic ensemble...

 

I also still have to get a few more things, centerpeices etc...but this is the majority of it. I can't believe my time is so close!!!!!!!!!Woot-Woot!
