April 2012 Bride

Recommended Posts

I agree with not having RSVP's. We set up a website as well and I put my phone number on the back of our save the dates. The family members that aren't tech savvy have been calling to let me know if they can come or not. It's saving me a ton!

My date is April 20 and luckily the rates actually dropped april 15. I was worried the rates would still be at peak due to Easter but I guess it is far enough out

So since this weekend was friends and family at Macy's we we're able to get my FI and groomsmen suits at a fraction of the price.  So excited!  We didn't realize this especially of those who want their party to wear a suit, the light fabrics are out now.  If you wait till next year it may be late.  Not to mention I don't have to worry one thing crossed off the list.  As part of their gifts we are giving the groomsmen ties and custom converse which they will be wearing the day of the wedding. I found the BM dress but it's a little early for that to order.  It takes 3 months so by September we will order them.  In the process of making invitations/ ordering supplies.  Can't wait to post the planning journal. Still more things to do.

 

How is everyone doing with their planning?

 

Less than a year to go April brides!!

We haven't started working on attire yet. FI's brother might be deployed during the wedding (we find out next month), so we're waiting as long as possible.

 

As far as invites, they're pretty much designed, but we need to order cardstock and start pu tting them together, since it will take forever I'm sure!

 

 

The project I'm working on right now is my brooch bouquet, which I'm so excited about! I've been ordering brooches, real touch flowers, supplies, etc. Here is my inspiration pic from Fancy Pants Weddings (mine will be white roses/callas, with turquoise ribbon on the stems):

Here are the brooches I've ordered so far!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
