RMBride2B's Planning Thread :)

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I decided to start my own planning thread as my wedding is about 9 months out now and I am DIY'ing as much as possible (on a tight budget!). Anyhow, I know there will be new brides that may need some ideas or inspiration, so here goes :)

This is the bridesmaids bouquets... I flowers from Garden Ridge. They came in bundles (about 9 stems each for the dahlias... both the dahlia bundles and hydrangeas were $2.99 each. Since this picture, I have cut the stems with wire cutters to my desired length, wrapped them with floral tape ($1.99 at Michael's) and bought a roll of fuchsia/hot pink ribbon (2 for $3 at michaels). I sealed the ends of the ribbon with a hot glue gun.

This is what my bridesmaids will be wearing... they will be wearing their hair up with a flower to match their dress... still have yet to find a flower hair clip that I like though... if anyone knows a good place to find some let me know :)

This is the flower basket and sea shell holder that I made. The basket I bought at Michaels for about $2 on sale. Then I bought a half a yard of ivory fabric from a fabric store to line the basket (just use hot glue gun to seal the fabric on). I hot glue gunned mini sand dollars on the handle part and and mini starfish on the top of the basket (on the fabric part). I used raffia ($5.99 for a whole bunch at Michael's) and tied it in a bow around the handles (I have since cut the ends of the raffia, so that it doesn't hang too long and also finished the inside - sorry haven't taken a picture of these since I finished them up).

 

For the sea shell holder (ring holder)... I bought the shell from Michael's ($2?) and used some of my leftover ivory fabric to line the inside of the shell. I cut a circular sized piece, then hot glue gunned the edges underneath to not have jaggedy edges. I then took a flower bud (from flowers I will be using in other parts of the wedding) and hot glued gunned it to the shell. Lastly, I cut 2 short strands of raffia under the flower petals and these will be used to tie the rings, so they won't fall off the shell....

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
