      Well, I couldn't have planned this wedding without yall. Thanks for everything and here is my planning thread (from a self proclaimed bridechilla):

      This are our welcome bags!

       

      My Mom and I hand painted the bags we got from cheaptotes.com (love em!) using this technique: http://howaboutorang...ezer-paper.html

       

      I wanted a unique bag, that didn't have our names splayed all over it, so people would want to use them again. I must say, for one or two bags, this would have been great. But for 18, the process was TEDIOUS. Unless you are the DIY ruler of the world, I do not recommend this technique for mass production. I do, however, love my bags!

      This is our family recipe for party mix. I even added little crab shapped crackers =) I know it seems a little silly, since we are going to an all inclusive, but whatever. The sticker says "homemade late night munchies....when room service is just too slow"

       

      The stickers on everything are from vistaprint, whom I love!

       

      003.JPG

       

      Got the target .99 first aid kits...supplemented by stuff from work since I am an RN. shhh.

       

      004.JPG

       

      My "Oh Sh*t kits" contain:

       

      extra strength tylenol-dollar store

      immodium-dollar store

      off wipes-target family pack

      chapstick- 3 for $1 at target

      crystal light on the go, energy/vit c

      winterfresh gum

       

      I used clear plastic party favor bags from target, punched holes in the top and tied them up with jute string.

       

      005.JPG

       

      My "keep it clean" kits contain:

       

      after sun lotion- $1 at the dollar store

      bath pouf_ 5/$1 at the dollar store

      nail files

      hand wipes-cheap, at the dollar store

      hand gel- 3/$1 at the dollar store

      kleenex-3/$1 target

      flossing picks-dirt cheap006.JPG

       

      Our stadium cups from discountfavors.com. I wanted the insulated mugs, but it was too expensive. These are cute and they were cheap!

       

      007.JPG

       

      These are the monogrammed cooler bags for the groomsmen. The hold a 12 pack and have a bottle opener on the strap. Got em cheap at the knotshop.com

       

      013.JPG

       

      We also got them two monogrammed low ball glasses. Let me tell you, all this stuff is a B to pack. (I also packed gift bags for every gift. We are handing them out at our rehearsal dinner).

       

      008.JPG

       

       

      Monogrammed totes for the bridesmaids I got from the knotshop!

       

      009.JPG

       

      Sterling silver starfish necklaces from target.com for bridesmaids. Pic doesn't do them justice, they are really pretty, and the perfect size.

       

      012.JPG

       

      Parents gifts: Each got a double frame (hobby lobby) with a picture on one side, and a letter on the other that I printed on gold scrapbooking paper. I love them!

       

      017.JPG

       

      This is the gift for my grandmother who is 88 and will be at the wedding!! Its filled with pictures of us, and very touching quotes about grandparents. I made it online at mixbook.com which I give 10 stars to!! I am obsessed with mixbook now. The book is great, and everyone that reads it, cries. I can't wait to give it to her.

       

      018.JPG

       

      This is our wedding guest book also from mixbook.com. Every page has a different question like, "how do you know the bride and groom," "How many kids will they have" and even a blank page that says "draw a picture of the bride and groom." I love it!!

       

      019.JPG

       

      014.JPG

       

      These are my DIY bridesmaids bouquets. I was going to order real touch, but I saw these callas at hobby lobby, and basically thought "these are good enough." ha! I spent a total of $30 for all three!! This was just not something I was willing to spend a lot on, and well, they are good enough!

       

       

      010.JPG

       

       

      These are my starfish from oriental trading co. to scatter on tables at the reception. They are a little on the small side, but whatev. Good enough!

       

      015.JPG

       

      These are my runners and bows in "taffeta crinkle" from tableclothsfactory.com. bows are pink and runners will be double orange with a pink in the midde. I heart them.

       

      011.JPG

       

      cute napkins I got from the knotshop.com. they were $19 for 100 i think...?

       

      016.JPG

       

      The basket that my MOM's flower girl used at my parents wedding. AWWW. (my ringbearer is carrying those rings down in their boxes! the thought of him precariously balancing our rings on a little seashell while we are stading on sand did not sit well with me lol)

       

      020.JPG

       

      My engagement ring and my wedding bands! We got them from a non-chain boutique in Dallas. The bands aren't attached....I didn't line it up perfectly in this pic.

       

      (ps, notice my nail....i had just gotten my AXXIUM gel manicure. Its my real nail (i hate fake nails), but with a gel laquer on top...supposed to last for up to a month, so i got it for the wedding. I'll let you know how that goes...but so far so good.)

       

      024.JPG

       

      FI's ring in tungsten.  He's so cute and wears it around the house "to practice"

       

      027.JPG

       

      Itinerary for the welcome bags. Also have a welcome letter but the pics didn't really come out.

       

      silkchiffon_jcrew.jpg?w=348&h=390

       

      My dress from jcrew. Very wearable, but had to get a size up for the bust. The bust is very small in their dresses.

       

      stuart-weitzman-nordstrom-evening-shoes-gigiritz-pump.jpg

       

      this is the closest pic of my shoe that I could find. Mine are off white, matching the dress perfectly...and I think with a higher heel.

       

       

      FI's suit came from stuidiosuits.com and we love it!! Ill post pics after the wedding. One of our gm had a little trouble though...the first pair were like 3 sizes too small, and the second pair he got are apparently the wrong color. I haven't seen them yet...eek. not really sure if the mistakes were on his part, or their part. eh.

       

      I guess thats all I really have for now. Look forward to a nice long review when I get back!!
