Hi Natalie,

 

Yes, I bought the seed beads in bulk on Ebay. Much better pricing. The seller I used isnt listed anymore... weird. But there's tons. The glue I use is E6000 or Amazing Goop - any of those in the glue aisle at Micheals that dont dry too quickly are are not runny.

Absolutely beautiful thread!!!  My FI and I had also planned on doubling our Engagement photo session as our guest book.  Who did you use to do the printing?  I'm in such awe of your creativity!!!!!!

Thanks so much for your posting your entire planning process.  I'm getting married at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach May 2011 and was at a lost on what to put in my guests' care packages and what to do for decorations for the reception, I may have to borrow some of your ideas.

 

Any advice you could give on having a wedding at the iberostar rosehall beach would be great.

 

Congratulations!!!!

Breeze, your planning thread was wonderful!!!  I have been on the IRHS forum, but this was the first i really ventured out to look at planning threads.  Wow - I was really missing out!!  I'm in the process of doing my OOT bags/favors.  Can I ask where you go the clear key card holders??

I'm in canada so I used canadaphotobooks.com. But there are lots of other sites you can use. Just do search on the forum for photobooks and you will see what other brides have used as well.

 

Glad you liked my thread!! :D

I had a hard time finding them in Canada - I finally did here: https://www.acklandsgrainger.com/AGIPortalWeb/WebSource/ProductDisplay/globalProductDetailDisplay.do?item_code=IDM1815-1110

 

There are other places in the US you can get them. Just do a search on the forum for 'key card holders' and you'll find a ton.

 

Glad you liked my thread!! :D

Breeze,

All I have to say is: You're my HERO!!! Wow! You're amazing!!! I wish I was half as talented as you. I really want to make a guest book similar to yours. Do you have a template or anything? Is there a site I can go on to help me make something like this?

 

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to share all this wonderful information.

Thanks Chanelle! I'm glad you liked my planning thread and I hope it inspired you!! See about two or three posts before yours I explained where I did my photobook. Any photobook site has software to help you lay it out nicely. Happy planning!

Bree what kind of pins did you use to glue to the back of these shells? I'm considering using shells or a starfish but just want an idea of what the pins look like.

Arenâ€t my chair swags sick?? The resort has white chair covers and silver chair bows, I plan to use them to pin my chair swags on.

 

These were actually really easy to make.  I bought the shells at http://www.qualityshells.com/ then me and my BMs put clear craft glue on the shells, making it look like it was dripping from the edge, then we dipped the shell in a bowl of multicoloured seed beads. Voila!  The beads stuck to the glue and looked great! Then just glue some pins to the back and your good to go.

 

The fabric is simple to do as well, check my soon-to-come blog for tutorials!

I made a guestbook using our Engangement Photos - People can sign throughout the book in sidebars and in thought bubbles.

 

Guest Favours

I DIYâ€ed the favours as well. Since we are leaving so close to Xmas, I made sand dollar Xmas decorations.

 

Bridesmaids Gifts

I sewed my BMs their own silk robes with lace trim. I had my embroidery guy embroider their names on them.

Iâ€m also giving them each a clutch. I got two Kate Spades, one LAMB and one Coach.
