SarahBen2011's Dreams PV Planning Thread with PICS!

Recommended Posts



So I had forgotten to post a few things and wanted to give some more details.


Here's our ceremony script - I pulled a lot of ideas from everything I saw on here (thanks again ladies!)




Here are the important songs for ceremony and reception:


Processional - Over the Rainbow by Israel Zamakawiwole

Flower Girl / Ring Bearer - You're So Cool by Dan Head

Brideâ€s Processional - Canon in D by Jean-Francois Pillard

Recessional – Making my Dreams by Hall & Oates

Reception Entrance – Marry You by Bruno Mars

First Dance – My First My Last My Everything by Barry White

Father Daughter – Daughter by Loudon Wainwright

Mother Son – Have I Told You Lately by Rod Stewart

Cake Cutting - I Can't Help Myself by The Four Tops


Our guest book from Etsy seller LazyLightningArt  (cost $40 plus shipping).  This should come in by Monday - I can't wait to see it in person!  It'll have our names and wedding date instead of Guests and the flowers will be Ivory.




And I ordered this pen that goes with it but from a different seller :-) $13 from braggingbags  




We ordered Handkerchiefs for each parent from Etsy seller designsbyGloria - they turned out really pretty, but you can kind of tell they were machine stitched.  They were a great deal though (6 for $74 with shipping).  We're planning on giving them photo books after the wedding but wanted them to have something to open the night of the rehearsal.







We got Ben's wedding band! It's titanium (he wanted something really light weight).  It's a hammered design and looks reallllly nice in person!  It was about $150 from a jewelry shop in Chicago, but it's from this company:  http://www.fablejewelry.com/




And I finally started the programs - for some reason it was hard to take a picture w/o a glare.  I'll do a separate post on how to DIY these.



And just for fun - a picture from my shower that was held in August and my Bach party that was a few weeks ago :-)  The white dress for the shower I got on sale at Macy's (it's BCBG).  They made me wear white to my Bach party (all the girls wore purple), I already had this white dress so I just wore that.




Watching the video of Ben answering questions about us :-)



Okay... I think that's it now LOL

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
