Anyone interested in a "Custom Made Wedding Website" ... let me know.  I made one for myself and then started to make them for other brides that are having destination weddings. :)


The website could be similar to this http://WWW.DEVONANDTABBY.COM or anyway you like.  I am very flexible and can really create anything you want.  


I started this for myself because I HATED the wedding websites that were out on the market and especially the free ones and just made my own... 


You can create your own:



Pick your own Music or Play List

Have tons of pages

Pick from tons of colors, patterns, looks etc... basically WHATEVER YOU ENVISION! :)

Endless albums

Any design you want on any page

Basically ... your wish is my command! YAY!

Prices are from $199 - $499 depending on how many changes and pictures etc.... :)


Let me know ...

Congrats on your 7 months!  I have to wait another couple of weeks to hit my 7.  I did put up my 2012 calendar at work and marked my 100 day mark to the wedding.. woohoo!!!  Time is really starting to fly. I wouldn't be upset though if it went even faster.  I'm ready to be laying on the beach relaxing.


Planning is going well here.  My dress is ordered, as well as my bridesmaids and both moms.  Dress shopping for everyone ended up being a lot more fun than I thought it would.  I am not a shopper, so I had visions of a disaster.  It worked out and everyone is happy with their dresses.  Now, I'm working on my invites to get them out after the new year.  I'm giving people plenty of time and encouraging people to book who haven't.  My RSVP date is May 1st, so I figure this is plenty of time to figure out my numbers and do the final pieces. 


How is your planning going?

Thank you island bride. Your planning is going well. I'm in the midst of dress shopping now. It is a whole lot of fun. I've found some really nice gowns but I've never felt that "OMG, this is the one feeling". I think it has to do more with the fact that none of the dresses fit me just right so it is hard to imagine what they would look like so I'm just going to order my favorite through a chinese bridal shop and hope for the best. I just can't imagine spending $3600 on a dress, I'm not sure will be the one. Just my opinion, but I'd think at $3000 and upwards for the dress, the stores would stock more sizes of each dress.


Good luck with the invites!

I'm with you Tiff... 2012 is finally here!  Seems like it took forever, but time is going to fly.  WE ARE ALL GETTING MARRIED THIS YEAR!!!  cheesy.gif


Congratulations Alicia and welcome!!!


@atalanta - How is dress shopping going?  I hope you have found something you love.  Invites were a huge success!  They are going out next week.  I can't wait until our guests start getting them.

I haven't really found a dress I love yet, but I have solicited a dressmaker to make major alterations to a dress I like very much. Hopefully, it will all work out fine.


less than 6 months to go!


Happy planning!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
