    Well, thought I'd do this now while I have some free time at work.  We leave in 2 weeks, on December 12th, I can't believe it!


    We are getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum on December 16, 2010.  We were supposed to be getting married at the Grand Riviera Princess, but due to the explosion that happened there, we were forced to change resorts.  We feel so blessed we weren't at the resort when that happened, and my thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost their lives that day.  The Gran Bahia has been amazing, and so accommodating to us and our guests.  We were able to keep our wedding date, and everything has worked out for the better!


    So, without further adieu, my planning thread!  :)








    We bought FI's ring off Etsy.  It is a titanium ring, super light!  Best part...only $40!!!






    My dress is Alfred Angelo, Sapphire collection.  I've modified it a little.  The back now has a lace up back, but the bows are still on.




    FI is wearing grey shorts we bought online from JC Penny, an RW & Co. shirt, and a coral skinny tie.  His groomsmen will wear the same, but without a tie.

    The BM's are wearing this coral coloured dress from Bella bridesmaid.






    I will be barefoot for the ceremony, and wear these sandals I bought from Aldo for the reception.




    I will wear this ivory flower in my hair, no veil.  I bought this off Etsy.




    My bracelet...another Etsy purchase :)  My mom recently bought my earrings, I will post a picture shortly.




    I bought this wire wedding hanger that says "Mrs. V..." to take pictures of my dress with.  Bought off Etsy from seller, LilaFrances.




    Our ring bowl, from Paloma's Nest.




    Bridal Bouquet.jpg


    My bouquet, but the stems are wrapped with ivory ribbon and a pearl seam.  I have a bouquet charm with pictures of my grandparents who have passed away.  These are real touch flowers, purchased from Wedideas.




    BM's bouquets.  They each have a silver initial pin attached.




    The bouts.


    Carrie's Hair Flower.jpg


    FI's groomswoman's hair flower.


    Colour Scheme:




    Coral, turquoise and ivory.






    Palm fans we are putting on each guests chair at the ceremony.  Bought off Etsy.




    We will be buying maracas in Mexico and putting them on each guests plate at the reception dinner.  We have little tags that on one side will say the guests name (works as a place card) and on the other side it says "Instead of tapping on your glass, here's a system with Mexican class.  Stand and shake with all your might, to see the groom kiss his bride tonight!"




    Wine Glasses.jpgWine Glasses 3.jpgWine Glasses 2.jpgMonogram Luggage Tag.jpgL Bouquet Pin.jpg


    BM's gifts are personalized wine glasses - bought off Etsy seller FizzyArtist, monnogrammed luggage tags from Etsy, and initial pins for their bouqets, bought off Ebay.



    Groomsmen will receive personalized flasks.




    My parents are receiving personalized handkerchiefs.  They are criers, so I thought this would come in handy ;)






    Invitations and thank you cards from the Anna Griffin collection at Michael's.


    Postcard Guestbook Card.jpegPostcards.jpg


    Postcard guest book instruction card and postcard.  Both made on Vistaprint.



    Monogram created by seller on Etsy.


    OOT Bags:





    OOT Bags purchased online from www.cheaptotes.com for $0.99 each.


    OOT bag contents:


    Sunscreen (SPF 30)
    Aloe Vera
    Pepto Chewables
    Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizers
    Plastic 16 oz beer mugs with our monogram (teal) from ebay seller, bluebirdjeanmoore.  Vinyl stickers to put on them with our monogram from etsy seller, inkedpapers.
    First Aid Kits
    Postcards (one for postcard guest book. one for themselves or a friend)
    Welcome Letter
    Luggage Tags





    I have two styles.  The first one is half down, half up and curled loosely, this is for the ceremony.  I will wear my hair flower, no veil.  The second is for after, at the reception.




    That's it so far!  I will update this if I can before the wedding!  If you have any questions as to where things were purchased, let me know.  Thanks, and the best of luck to all the BDW brides!

          Thanks!  We aren't bringing anything down decor-wise.  We are having a reception dinner at a restaurant, and they apparently place flowers that match the centerpiece I chose for the judges table at the ceremony on the tables.  Then we are having a private poolside cocktail reception, and they decorate with lights, and candles and decorate the cake table.  So I'm just going to leave it up to them :)  Less for me to worry about!


          At our AHR in February we attempt these for our centerpieces...




          And I've bought tissue paper poms to hang from the ceiling in coral, turquoise and ivory...

            That's amazing that they provide flowers and candles. Where did you find your hankies for your mom & dad?
