    The ceremony is 9 days from today, and we leave in 6, Hooray J

     

    First of all thanks to all you ladies for the ideas and tips I received on here.  You guys are all awesome and I feel like I am taking a little piece of my “desties” with me since I would have never been able to pull it off without this site.  I never thought this day would come, but the year has gone by SO fast.  I joined the forum in December 2009, with so much confusion and so many questions, and everyone was so helpful clearing things up and calming my anxieties.  So without further ado, here are my goodies!

     

    Sorry the pictures came out different sizes...

     

    Dress and shoes for the welcome reception on Saturday night.  I found the dress at a cute boutique in New Orleans during Mardi Gras last year

    My rehearsal dinner dress and shoes.  I actually wore the same outfit for our courthouse wedding in December. I figured it was an appropriate time to break it out again J

    My hair flower.

    My reception shoes. I plan to put “I do” decals on the bottom (thanks VDay bride for the idea)

    My second pair of reception shoes, for when the heels become uncomfortable J

     My BM gifts from Tiffany & Co., I got them charms that fit their personalities.  They will also each get special canvas bags with the OOT contents in them (thanks to Bostonbride2009!)

    MOH tanks.  Instead of one MOH and one BM, I chose to have 2 co-MOHs.  These are cute DIY iron ons from Ebay

    Bride hoodie from VS along with a cute t-shirt I found for the plane ride home!

    P1010091.JPG

     

     

     My engagement ring. Asscher cut custom design

     

    P1010092.JPG

    And my eternity wedding band, also custom with rounds and princess cut diamonds turned sideways.

    P1010086.JPG

     

    His wedding band.  He doesn’t wear jewelry so he wanted to keep it simple with Tungsten Carbide.

     

    P1010081.JPG

     

     

     My STD magnets. Sent them out March 2010

     

    P1000496.JPG

     

    Our pre-travel packet sent in January.  It includes our newsletter the Team Davis Tribune, along with the formal invitation, luggage tags, and a packing list.

     

    P1010093.JPG

     

     

    Our guestbook from the engagement party.  Full of photos of us and signatures from guests at the party.  I also had ladies sign them at both of my bridal showers.

     

    P1010035.JPG

     

     

     

    Our wedding guestbook, one of my girlfriends made it for us!

     

    P1010096.JPG

     

     

     

    Some of my OOT bag contents:

     

     The "oh sh*t kit"

    P1010097.JPG

     

    Front and back of our door hangers, Spanish translation booklets, and welcome booklets

    P1010098.JPG

     

     

    We also are going to have organza bags filled with dried lavender on the ceremony seats for guests to throw as we leave down the aisle as husband and wife.  An alternative to bubbles or bird seed that smells WONDERFUL!

     

     

    Wedding stationary: programs, itineraries, and menu cards from Precious Paiges out of Austin, TX. She does an AWESOME job!

    That’s all for now…I will post a review and pics when we return!

            Very nice!! Awe I can't wait to start working on mine. Today I'm going to buy some stuff for our OOT bags. Are you going to post any templates? I really like the layout of your Tribune letter as well as your packing list.

             

            Thanks!

                      Islandgirl: The packing lists I will probably be selling when I return. I actually got them from a bride off of here and I should have an extra pack.

                       

                      As for the template, I will post it from my work computer probably upon my return as well since I have a short week this week and it will be hectic at work! I only have a Mac at home and publisher doesn't transfer over well...
