    GIFTS...
    Planning thread

     

    I forgot to mention the gifts!  Here are the gifts we gave out...

     

    bridesmaids

    • $200 toward their wedding day attire

    • MAC lipstick

    • MAC makeup bag that doubled as a clutch on the wedding day (new bags from MAC...they are awesome

    • for MOH that works for MAC, I bought her a different clutch... something different for her

    • framed picture with myself and each BM/MOH...the frame had "friends" at the top...they LOVED them!!!

    • passport holder in our wedding colors (from michaels)   

     

    Groomsmen

    • $200 toward their wedding day attire
    • chris made each groomsmen their own box with a slide out "lid"....inside the box he had straw stuffing, a bottle of their preferred liquor, mix (ie. a small bottle of coke, gingerale etc.), and he bought flip top glass jars that he filled with lime/jalapeno cashews.  the guys LOVED them!  :)

     

    parents

    • i gave the moms a little goody bag a week before we left for helping so much, included... a thank you card/wooden jewelery (was a big hit), a small piece of canvas art in our wedding colors that read "dream big", a candle in our colors and the passport holder in our wedding colors (different color then the MOH/BM's)
    • Once down in Mexico, we gave the dads cash to go on a golfing excursion of their choice (so glad we did, they weren't going to bother because they thought it was too expensive)
    • the moms a gift certificate to get a massage at the resort (so worth it, they wouldn't stop talking about it!!!), and a framed picture of chris and i with  wording all over the frame that pertain to family for each (we had chris' dad, step-dad & mom, my mom+dad)

                Thank you very much!

                 

                I think I just got my first order to do this on the side, my travel agent has been showing everyone my work, and a bride is interested....

                  This is absolutely amazing!  Your wedding was gorgeous, as were you!  And all your details were just simply awesome!  I think you absolutely should have orders pouring in, you definitely did professional level work, and I'm now thinking about all kinds of aspects of the wedding I never even considered.  Again, fantastic job!!!
