    Hi Ladies,

     

    We recently got back from Hawaii, where my daughter got married.  I basically did all the planning, creating, etc., she just had to show up :)  Anyway, now that we are not in "wedding mode", I have a little time to finally share some of the idea's and things we did to make it unique.  Her wedding was on Oahu, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, in the Ocean Crystal Chapel and we used the Rainbow suites for her reception.  Everything was absolutely amazing and could not have been more perfect.  We organized a lot of activities for everyone (we had 75 fly over from mostly Texas and the Northeast US). All of the info for activities was on the website I created for them so I'm adding a link to their website here as well in case you want any ideas or vendors.  We paid for the site for several more months so someone might as well use what they can!  Last of course, there is a picture of my daughter and her Bridal party.  Everything is my original creation, Hope you enjoy!

          Wow!  Everything looks amazing, fitting for a beach wedding, yet elegant and classy.  What an inspiration for future brides.  Thanks for posting.

            Thank you ladies!  All the paper was from paperandmore.com just FYI  I'm an avid scrapbooker and used to work for Recollections as an instructor in cards/canvases and scrapbook pages so I'm considering actually doing a side business for custom invites/wedding packages.  Not sure if I want to do it yet, I love it as a hobby, but if I had a client who was a demanding bridezilla, I might not like it so much!  LOL  My daughter was super easy, and aside from the fact that she DID NOT want any "theme" per se, she basically said these are the colors and whatever you come up with will be fine.  I had her choose fonts from different examples and proof everything, but basically that's it.  She wanted it to "fit" a Hawaii wedding, but we weren't allowed to have any "beach stuff"...just casual, and elegant was her request.  However, just to tease her, I did put a starfish on her table at the reception...this picture is an example of her reaction, too funny not to share!

              I love that she didn't want anything "beach" That is sort of exactly what I am leaning towards.. I have a few pieces that are beachy... ring bearer shell etc.

                Great job mom! Love the meticulous attention to detail. Those program fans are amazing and the desing of the table numbers and menus are spectacular! Kudos to you

                      I was also wondering where you bought the actual holders that are holding her table numbers?
