Good Evenig ladies...taking a break from my kitchen table where I am fastely completing many projects.

 

Have done menus, programs, flowers, tote bag tags, and escort cards. Of course pictures are included....

 

Menus (Copied/stolen/borrowed/altered from Rebecca (Allurements by Rebecca))

Next up flowers, completed mine and the ladies. Have to make bouts for the guys and corsages for the special guest (only 1, my mother)

Excuse the sprite cans, the stems aren't quite wrapped yet.  Question ladies, do I just wrap the stem in ribbon or should I purchase the Styrofoam 'thingy'?

 

Bridesmaid:

Bridesmaid 2 ( I am horrible at duplicating things, so they aren't exactly the same)

My grandmother passed and some of the others don't have the health to travel :( That's special your grandfather is walking you down - I was hoping to have both of mine in lieu of my father but we'll see what happens when we get closer. (Our fathers might be in the same town) The last time I was with my guy and his family I truly fell in love with them - so maybe your time is comming if not oh well you got your man! :)

Them people (that's what I call them) they are a different type, so closed minded.  I tell everyone, if I would have met the family first, I am not sure that we would be here together today stupid.gifwacko.gif

 

As for my fitting, I stay up in northern VA and he will be in Arlington, so I am pretty sure it will go down (in my Kevin Hart voice) somewhere up here in my neck of the woods.  I know that's a far trek for you.

 



 


YAY! I was so excited to see! I love the programs that's a new one I havn't seen!

Ladies got cream ribbons and guys got orange ribbon ties.



 


Your ring is so pretty! Which seller did you order your hanger from? I think I prefer the wood/wire combined

LOL @ 'our fathers might be in the same town', I am upset that you knew EXACTLY what I meant in reference to my father, that's scary, LOL. 

 

The programs actually came from Janet, a Canadian bride (I stalk that thread also, LOL). She shared her programs with me, I edited and changed colors and printed them out. Her share is right on point and make them all so easy to perfect.

 

Bag Tags ~ well do you remember that I am an eBay whore. Well another bride on here mentioned something about a Cuttlebug, so I went on eBay and purchased one for less than half of what they cost in store, brand new.  It is an embossing - die cutting machine.  Anywho, I used a die cut to cut the bag tags and the tags on the escort cards.  Now in that same breath, while I was on eBay stalking a Cuttlebug, I also stalked a Cricut Create, refer to a previous post when I first got them.  With a new Create (had to get a replacement because the first one just didn't work), I did the 'thank you' and the palm trees. A little adhesive & spray glue. Then there is the eyelets, with a 50% off coupon from Michael's I purchased a Crop-A-Dile and some eyelets....and VOILA!

 

Name a date and time and we can create some tags for you.  I need a day trip anyways!

 

My hanger comes from -  einspanner I liked his also because he replied very quick when I asked a question, he creates and ships within 48 hours of payment and yeah I like the wood also. He offers three different woods and three different color wires.

Yes Janet, the programs are perfect. I bought new brads for them, so I will take a picture of those when I print them all out w/ the new decor, LOL.

 

My concern with the flowers, is because they came in bunches I had to cut them off their thick stem, so the base are rather skinny, does that matter?

 

And I will wait for my pictures of your flowers!!! How are you feeling? Getting closer....

I prefer thicker base but they dont have to be too thick (harder to carry if your girls have small hands too)

You could always just put a couple of cut up stems in between where no one will see them and then when you wrap them they will be covered anyway

 

The programs are always popular :) i'm going to start a thread about them now so other brides can share in the fun :)

 

I'm finishing up my welcome kits that go in my OOT bag now so i will have to share those with you too when i am done :) will give you more ideas hahah :)

 

OMG SOOOOO close i leave in 12 days! i cant friggin believe it!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
