    We're mere hours from heading off to our hotel at the airport (5:30am flight tomorrow!), but I've been so excited to post this that I'm going to try to get as much on here as I can right now.


    A big thank you to Tammy and everyone else who posts on this site! I certainly couldn't have done this as well without you. You will notice that I don't think that I have anything original. I begged, borrowed and stole shamelessly! Here we go...


    We did not send out STDs, but did send our invitations out about nine months in advance. I headed down to my local Paper Zone and picked out all the papers. Then, along with my trusty Cricut, put all these babies together.

      Dress is Pronovias Hoguera, which I purchased "pre-loved" through an online site. My hair will be done by a friend who's attending the wedding. Here's pictures from our trial run back in May.



      Here was a trial make-up run, but I may end up going a different route.

        My shoes were SO difficult to choose! Dressy looking solid wedges were very hard to find. This is what I ended up going with.me-too-nordstrom-sandals-jones-wedge-sandal.jpg


        Here's the shrug I knitted for our legal ceremony.

          Here's the wrap I knitted for our Mexico ceremony.



          Our pre-travel brochures and luggage tags. We have five babies coming, so they got special baby pirate tags. I actually created two brochures through Vistaprint. I only used the center section of the second brochure and cut it out and put it into the first one. So, it looked like an insert. It turned out great. You'd never know they were once two separate brochures.

              Our Welcome Bags: The bags are screen-printed. Got the canvas bags from cheaptotes.com. The mugs are from Oriental Trading Co. They were the Mother's Day ones. I took out the coloring page and put in my own Cricut creation. They took a LONG time to make, but turned out super cute. Ceremony fans are from OTC as well. I embellished them. =) Survival kits were once Walmart 1st Aid Kits from the $1 bins. They took up too much space, so I took them out of their plastic box and put them into ziploc baggies. We also included pens, pencils and puzzle books from the Dollar Store. We're going to buy chips and salsa to put in them once we're down there.





              Maracas will be our "centerpieces".
