Acireta's Planning Journal - April 3, 2012 Cruise Wedding

Recommended Posts


I got mine from Michaels, and they have them in a bunch of different sizes. Here is the punch that I used for the circle stickers (1.5"), it's nice because you can see through to what you're punching before you cut:


I used a 3" punch for the bag tags. I set all my images to .1" less than the punch I was using so I'd have the slightest sliver of clearance around the tag/monogram.

I think i may have already asked, but what circle punch did you use to cut the monograms?i got one from Marha stewart, but u think it will have to go back, cause its the one that you have to press down(2x2)i think,but its really hard to see what im cutting.

also i have tried to position all the monograms in Microsoft word uniformly next to each other so i can print bunch per per page, but its coming out looking way too big, what size do you think i should save is as?thank you, thank you!post some pic from the wedding


I don't have all the pro pics yet, but I got a couple proofs yesterday...











I should have all pics by this weekend, and I'll be making a slideshow for our AHR, so I'll post more up asap!

Thank you!! I'm starting to organize everyone's pictures tonight to start working on the slideshow. At least I have a bunch of flights this weekend to give me the time to work on it!


I used the 1.5" for stickers and labels in various places, and it's not as small as it sounds. I used it for gift bag stickers, sugar scrub tags, seals for my pretrip packets, etc.


I just realized I was supposed to post more info on the sugar scrubs when I got back. I'm sorry for the delay!



Supplies for each scrub jar

8 oz. clear round wide-mouth jars (http://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-9935/Jars-Jugs-Bottles/8-oz-Clear-Round-Wide-Mouth-Jars)

1 cup white granulated sugar

1/3 cup safflower oil

15-20 drops fragrance oil (soap-making aisle at craft store; I got a variety pack with lavender, vanilla, coconut, pink grapfruit, mango & melon)


I made 40 jars using 5 bags sugar and 1.5 big bottles of oil.


I made labels for the jars on shipping label paper, and tied a cardstock thank you tag to each jar with twine from Ace Hardware. The thank you tags said "Thank you for making my shower so SWEET!" since they were sugar scrubs.

Here are my templates for the labels and tags:

I have to add... I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you had cardboard Buster present in honor of your brother and that he had his own bout!  I even teared up reading the story about Cardboard Buster.


The pics of "him" and the groomsman is great!

So our AHR was last night and it was awesome! We had a slideshow of the wedding pictures, a candy buffet, heavy appetizers, cupcakes and open bar, and about 125 of our friends and family from all over the country were there.


Here is the candy buffet all set up, it was a HUGE hit!







Here are the two different centerpieces we had on the low round tables:







These were on the high cocktail tables:

We had a table with wedding pictures and my bouquet set up for gifts:




Instead of a guest book, we had a fingerprint tree with blue and green inkpads, pens to sign and alcohol swabs:



I got my hair done, I wore my wedding dress, Al wore his wedding clothes. We played the shoe game, had a couple toasts and made a thank you speech. Hopefully I'll get some pictures from friends and family since we didn't have a photographer.


It was an awesome night, and it went so quickly! I couldn't imagine having that kind of party on the same day as the wedding. I would have been so stressed!



Next project - posting up pro pics here and on Facebook!

    • 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?
