      Pre-Travel Mailers


      I went to Rebecca for my brochures as well.  I sent these out a month before the wedding along with 2 luggage tags per person.  Everybody absolutely LOVED these!!!








      Luggage Tags

      I made the luggage tags with the business cards from DSCN2761.JPG

        As soon as the resort and wedding was officially booked the very next thing we did was book the photography; I knew I wanted tropical imaging to do our photographs.  I am so excited to have Ileana with Tropical Imaging do our wedding day photos and our trash the dress the next day.

        Reception Details

        We decided to go with the 2 hour private reception, we won’t actually pick the location until we arrive on the resort, but I’m looking for something as close as possible to the beach, since you can’t have it on the actual beach.   



        We also will have a calypso band play during the reception for an hour.

          Also provided by Beaches in the Martha Stewart Wedding Theme.  They are white cymbidium orchids with seashells, and it’s tied together with an aqua ribbon.  I’m also putting an aqua starfish jewel in the bouquet as well.

            Guest Book

             Rebecca also made a custom guestbook for us; I won’t have it until next week so here is what it will be…

            It will be a turquoise 8 x 8 book with a coral ribbon tied onto the side, this image will be on the front of the guestbook


            And the inside pages will be these; the front of the sheet will look like this


            And the back of the page will be a "mad-lib" style fill in







            My Dress

            I waited entirely too long to go dress shopping, I would definitely recommend going at least 8 months before the big day to give yourself plenty of time to find the dress, especially if you’re a really indecisive person like myself.  I waited until 6 months before my wedding to start trying on dresses, well after trying on countless dresses and only 5 months until my wedding I finally decided on the Vanessa by Maggie Sottero.  We had to have the dress rush ordered.

            On me the very first time I tried on the dress:





            Trash the dress

            So my original plan was to absolutely no doubt in my mind to “trash” my real wedding dress but mom (who paid for the dress) was not having it J so it was time to search for another much cheaper dress, I searched and searched and I found dresses I like but I really didn’t want to spend $200 and $300 I wanted it to be no more than $100, so I ran across a wonderful thread on here about knock off dresses, this was my answer!!! So I decided to order a knock off of another Maggie dress that I loved, and that’s the RD1044 from her destination line.  Ordered through a seller on DSCN2572.JPG

                    My mom will be getting a nice thank you card, also made by the fabulous Mrs. Rebecca, a personalized lounge chair cover, bikini bag, starfish necklace, lotion and spray from bath and body works.  And I haven’t decided on the rest, I’m considering an excursion and possibly paying for her hair and makeup.

                      What a dream wedding you've put together. With so many added layers of personalization, it will absolutely be unforgettable for so many reasons. Your guests are going to feel so special to be a part of your amazing day (if they don't already). Love all the choices and how they go together. Congrats April bride #1, I know we will all be eagerly awaiting your return to hear just how wonderful everything actually was. Congratualtions!
