      Muchas Gracias ;-)

       

      Thanks so much for the compliments!  I'm a shoe whore (self acclaimed LOL) so this was a big deal for me...  The shell was a big hit and so unique.  When I laid eyes on the inspiration picture there were no more questions as to what I was going to do.  Our guest said "they had never seen something like this before.."  Gosh I love this site

            I have a question... When you made your website did it go "live" when you created it, or could you choose when you wanted others to see the site? And How did you decide to go with that web company?

              IT' is "live" so to speak but if you password protect it (like I did) know one will be able to access your site wihtout it. 

              For US it was all that we wanted without limitations.  For example:

               

              I have 5 songs uploaded to play in the sequence that I want.

              I can change the format as many times as I want (I'm not locked in to one look all the time), this is the same with color

              They have seating charts etc....

               

              And I can go on and on. 

               

              I already knew going in,  that I would be re-doing the site to showcase our engagement pictures so that the songs, look etc. would be different when they visit the site again...so for me this was the best.

                Updates in May!

                Wow, it seems like such a long time that I have updated anything on this site!   I find myself contemplating all that I will put into my final planning thread (without having our professional pictures back),  so that it's complete, however; this would only lead to post in June, which will happen anyway.  So, for now I will add pictures that our guest took and templates.  I will do my best to add things as they happened as this will help me to stay organized

                 

                Coco's discliamer *All pictures are non-professional pictures.  Once I am done uploading all post, I will mark this by saying "The End." Lastly, if I do not include a template it is probably one that I do not intend or sharing.  Likewise, if you find a template that does not include the graphics that I used, that is because I do not intend on sharing that as it was designed for us. 

                If you are new to my planning thread, please take a moment to look at the first few pages which will have pictures, explains vendors etc.  If you have been following me for a while, then please take a look at my review for Moon Palac before you get started here as this will have a lot of things in it.  You can find the link in my signature!

                 

                So, let's get started shall we?

                Since the majority of the DIY projects came with the concept of OOT bags, let's start with all things centered around OOT.  Since we planned to have welcome cocktails, I thought it would be great to give the bags out that night.  Most guests arrived on Thursday and our Welcome Cocktails were Friday so... it simply made sense so that they could start using the bags immediately.  Here is a picuture of the bags lined up on the Terrace... They were color coded this way:

                All pink: single females

                All blue: single males

                Combo (pink and blue): Couples!  Couples received 1 bag

                 

                photo(43).JPG

                bags and tissue paper purchaed from Nashvillewraps.com

                 

                Contents:

                -Welcome folder (there was no template for this)!  I took a 12x14 sheet of Bazzille paper (found at Michaels) and folded it in half and then folded it up.  I used Martha Stewarts glue  & bone folder to make the creases.

                -DND signs

                -Tears of Joy packets

                -Vista Print "Wish you were here" postcards

                - Welcome booklet

                 

                Other DIY contents/or their parts in the bag

                -Adult Activity book

                -Kids activity book (given in pre-mailing packet)

                -1st Aid Kit

                -chapstick labels

                -oot bag tag labels
