    I love this post so many creative ideas...I am not a DIY at all..so things need to be broken down to the basics for me.

     

    A couple of questions.

     

    1. How many guest are you planning on having at your wedding.

    2. CAN I COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL I want a goodie bag....hehe

    3.  What type of paper did you print the door hangers on?

    4. What are you doing different for your male guests.  I am trying to decided what type of bag to get for them.

    5. Are you doing a hangover kit...I am waiting for that post.

     

    Thanks in advance

      hi, akamikey!  are you an AKA?  my daughter is...just wondering.  (skee wee, if u are - although i don't think i'm supposed to do that since i'm not an AKA) 

       

      anyway, about your questions...here's the 'skinny'...

       

      1. How many guest are you planning on having at your wedding.

      25-30 (we have 20 booked)

       

      2. CAN I COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL I want a goodie bag....hehe

      lol...i'm about a week after your big day..if you're still hanging out in Jamaica..come on through! iberostar rosehall beach, october 8, i'll be the Diva in the Dress! 

       

      3.  What type of paper did you print the door hangers on?

      the door hangers were printed on a white metallic paper that i got from Michaels (.29/sheet)...its a bazzill basics paper that's seriously gotta be the BEST paper ever!  love it...its more of a cardstock than a paper though.

       

      4. What are you doing different for your male guests.  I am trying to decided what type of bag to get for them.

      i'm not really doing anything for male guests as i don't really have any single males coming...with the exception of my son.  i'm doing the bob stuff from michaels for him along with the goodie box that i chatted about the other day...i'm also doing a goodie box for dad and one for my love..because i just couldn't afford the rolex (pre-owned) that he really wants..  i committed to pay for ALL of our kids (4 - 2 GROWN KIDS AND 2 WHO THINK THEY'RE GROWN) to be at the wedding so that's a priority but i'm determined to get him that watch...ONE OF THESE DAYS! 

       

      5. Are you doing a hangover kit...I am waiting for that post. 

      i'm on the fence about the hangover kit..we're 'church folk' although we're not 'churchy'..meaning we do most things in moderation BUT i don't want to offend any of our guests..some of which are 'churchy'..so instead of a hangover kit, i'm doing what i call a wedding survival kit..most things that are in a hangover kit will be in the survival kit along with some other goodies..i won't be chatting about those until closer to the wedding as i'm still hunting for treasures to include in the OOT "kits".  and i'm hoping to score a few FREEBIES along the way...  stay tuned!

       

      well, that's it from here...please let me know if i can be of any other support.

       

      as always, happy planning!!!

          I just read through this thread, jumped up and ran to Michael's! LOL! I'll have to go back tomorrow because I searched and could not find those luggage tags! Everything you have done so far is Beyond Amazing!!!! I can't wait to see more! I wish I was half as creative as you! lol

           

          I love your logo, maybe I missed the post, but where and how did you create that??

            i created the logo...i've got a thread all about logos on here too...check it out. 

             

            look for the luggage tags in the $1 deal section or the clearance section..you'll find LOTS of GREAT stuff there.

             

            so glad i could help.

                  april...its good to start hoarding stuff..especially when you find a good deal..the bob marley stuff is 'classic jamaica'...and for $1/each..you can't beat the price (with a stick)..so go for it.

                   

                  check out the dollar store for shells, etc...shells add to the 'beach' vibe without overpowering it AND they're cost efficient.

                   

                  happy to help...

                   

                  jlarruda...run out there...print off the online coupon first though...happy shopping!

                   

                  until next time, happy planning!!

                      GOOD MORNING, fellow BDW brides!

                       

                      for today's planning post, i'll be sharing my latest DIY project, my bachelorette breakfast invite.  here's some background, in lieu of having a bridal shower and/or a bachelorette party, i'm having breakfast with my female guests..most of my family and friends still live back East so this is an opportunity for them to have private time with me during the wedding weekend and if they'd like, shower me with gifts...although, gifts aren't expected, they are appreciated. 

                       

                      the breakfast will 'look, feel and sound' like a shower hosted by my sister and my two daughters.  we'll play games, there will be cute prizes and i hope moments of words of wisdom from my friends and family.  so, i wanted to do a really nice invite for the breakfast...here's what i've come up with.

                       

                      bachelorrette breakfast 2.JPG

                       

                      the invitation will be mailed separately to my female guests.

                       

                      brides, that's it for today's post, until next time, happy planning!!!
