If I can tie up this loose wedding ends another pair will be my Christmas present to myself... If I find the pink ones that I want LOL...  love my shoes

 

I can't wait to meet all of my wedding sisters.. we are going to have a great week at MP ;-)

DIY all the way ;-)  If I look at the ingredient I can spot it but don't remember it off hand.  I was like wow so I had to go on a hunt for all natural which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.  Also pretty much all of my paper (except metallic, vellum, cardstock) came from work.

Okay ladies,

 

I'm off to meet FI.  But before I go I wanted to post our OOT bags in the making.  Before I start my bulk printing etc.. I also do a mock up to see if I need to adjust wording, add or remove etc.... these are my mock OOT bags and weekend survival kit.  Once the printer is up at work then I will be finishing these babies.

 

Since we decided to use Kraft Gift Bags (we did a FaceBook survey about beach bags) I didn't want all of our ( kits) to just sit in the bag.  So I created the smaller bag which will hold our "first aid kit, naughty nite kit and oh shit kit" everything else will sit in the bag (welcome book etc..)

 

These again are photo pictures.  Also there is absolutely nothing inside these bags but scraps of paper that I had cut LOL  for the weekend survival kits I have printed these off on metallic cardstock and they look so pretty.  My whole punch (although Martha Stewart) does not do a great job at punching through cardstock so FI got me a whole punch heavy duty that they use at work.  So the whole will be much cleaner.  I will pre-punch these for Mexico.  All bags will be assembled in cancun.

I used Yankee Candle Company - Sun and Sand.  It was the diffuser oil, and I put the corks in a baggie with the oil overnight.  I liked it because it totally smelled like the beach to me (and sunscreen).  People seem to get the idea!  Had another person comment on it today. :)

Gorgeous detail on your dress!!!!!  Very pretty silhouette, too!

I'm so in love with these luggage tags!!!!  I saw them at Michael's, and took a pic with my iPhone as a possibility to send out.  Now, you've inspired me to actually do it!  Cute detail with the gemstone, too.  And love the silvery glittery paper!  You did a really great job.  It inspires me because silver and teal are part of our colors, too. :)  I'm also curious to know if you'll be making your invites!  Thanks for sharing.

Really pretty color combo for the flowers!  How long did those take you?!  I admire you for doing them yourself!  Flowers is something I'd definitely feel lost about tackling DIY!  Kudos!  Are you doing the boutinneres too? 

 

Wow, you've collected a lot of items so far for your OOT bags!!  What's in the white box?  I love the cups that you decorated - very functional and cute.  I'm totally going to look in dollar stores now for puzzles for my OOT bags!  Great idea!

LOVE these like crazy!!!  You seem like a busy professional woman as well as a great mother and fiance ---- how do you do it all.... do you sleep?? msnwink.gif  You amaze me.  Will PM you on this and the chapsticks --- have some questions!

 

I actually really like the veil --- it looks classic and elegant.  Which, from what I gather on your website and postings on here, suit who you are as a person too! 

 

Oh no on the PS3!!  You were so excited!  Seems like the FI learned his lesson!

 

HILARIOUS about your gold card.  I'm so jealous!!  Michael's is one of my top 3 stores (besides Office Max and Barnes & Noble ---- I'm a huge dork!!!), and I still have a red card!  But I've only begun my DIY projects, bwahaha!  (LOL)

 

Hope you have a great night with the FI!  Can't wait to hear about your decorations soon.

Sooo.... after I've totally blown up this thread in the last 20 minutes or so --- I couldn't help myself commenting on all of the exciting progress you all have posted today, l just have to post again. 

 

First off, I'm floored by the creativity and generosity of you ladies being willing to share your ideas!!  This thread is full of awesome synergy.  LOVE it.  Inspiring. 

 

Secondly, I'm really encouraged because after racking my brain for DAYS on how to decorate for our ceremony (and using lots of printing of beach ceremony templates and colored pencils), I think it's all coming together about what we're going to do!  Here's my crude drawing, haha:

 

Photo of 1st Draft Ceremony Decs.jpg

 

It's still a rough draft.  I may play with the colors a bit more and try silver chair sashes instead of teal, since the bridesmaid dresses are teal, and I don't want it to be too "tealy" lol.  We'll only put sashes on the aisle chairs in order to save on cost. 

 

The words hanging on the chairs will say "Love is the Treasure of Life."  It's the saying we have on our invitation.  (I also want to get shepherd's hooks for our cocktail hour and bring the words there to hang. :)  I make some other words, too, for the cocktail hour, and put them in a container, and people can change the wording on the hooks for fun and photos --- kind of like refrigerator magnets... i.e.  Just adding a "MY" word to this bunch, you could change the words to say "Love of my Life" and take a picture with them.)  In this pic, the words are silver and outlined in blue.  I may try to do them in brown instead so that I can hang up the words in one of our rooms when we get home (our home has more natural, earthy colors). 

 

The flowers in glass are what they have pictured in the Sapphire collection. 

 

I haven't included the judges table yet because I don't know what to put on it. 

 

Any ideas or feedback as I'm playing with this?     feedback.gif   (Btw, I don't know why this smiley man has angry eyebrows.  I'm definitely not angry, haha.)

 

Also, this means that I've kind of changed my colors to include lime green!!!  I feel very happy about this because now the colors for our flowers are coming together much better, too!  Now, my colors are teal, lime green, silver, and dark blue.  Feeling very encouraged!

 

Goodnight, lovely ladies!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
