May 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

Ali, I'm convinced you need to open your on etsy store once the wedding has passed and you've completed all you DIY projects...You're one crafty and creative cookie!
Aw thanks Tova!!!! These were actually extremely cheap and easy to make any one could do it. Overall I think it only cost me like $8-10 to make all 4 which would probably cost me almost $100 to buy. They do take some time but really it's just alot of cutting.

Still so much to do! And I feel I have no time!

Menus

Programs

Finish OOT bags

Centrepieces and table numbers

Finalize flowers

Decide and book hair and makeup

Music playlists

WRITE VOWS!!!!!!

Dress alterations and jewellery

Guestbook signs

Seating chart

Cake decorations

 

There's probably more on that list but that's all I can think of right now.

Hey Date Twin!

 

I'm in the same boat! 2 months from today I'll be married but we leave for Mexico on April 27 (1 week before)

 

What I still have left to do:

 

Select and purchase Groom (and groomsmen) attire

Arrange travel to and from Atlanta airport

Put together OOT bags (doing it in Mexico after we purchase more items there)

Print graphic design pieces I had designed (door hanger, itinerary, check in card, favor tags, custom menus)

Select hair style

Programs

Select location for Bridesmaid Luncheon (Hosting on March 23 but don't have location yet! LOL)

Purchase gift for my mom

Purchase cake server set and toasting glasses

Purchase Fiance's Wedding Band

Purchase Flameless Candles and Flameless Floating Candles

Purchase t-shirts (having them printed when we get to Mexico for guests to wear on Catamaran Excursion)

 

I'm sure there's more but that's the bulk of what's left. I'm trying to have it all done by end of March. That way I have 3 weeks left to go shopping and deal with unexpected issues.

Not even my mom knows half the things I've been working on. Only the lovely ladies of BDS know all my secrets lol

 

I am however almost finished another DIY project. I was just gonna post all my projects on my planning thread as there are already multiple threads dedicated to most of my projects but I have yet to come across a thread for DIY wedding banners. So ill give my May brides to be a sneak peek of a DIY thread I might post soon.

This is actually on reversible banner! Just have to punch the holes and thread my purple ribbon through. I also have a second one that says just married and is reversible as well with the other side saying thank you. The banners pictured are for photo props as well as maybe ill put the love one on the cake table. The just married banner will be for our head table and thank you is a photo prop for our thank you cards we will have printed!

Those are amazing!!! I wish I was talented like that!

Here is where I am at with the planning.  I love everyone providing updates ... it keeps me on track.

 

 

TO DO

-Book Canadian Ceremony

-Apply for Wedding License

-Wedding Dress (Final Fitting)

-Bride Jewelery (Something Borrowed, Something Blue (Garter), Something New, Something Old)

-Groom Attire (Pants/Sandals)

-Welcome Bags

-DJ Song Request Sheet

-Order Vista Print Stuff (Dinner Menu, Thank You Cards, WeddingPics Business Cards, Welcome Brochure)

I think this is it .... eek.  So worried about forgetting something.

 

There are so few weekends left.  Almost every weekend is booked up with stuff to do with the wedding now.  It's actually insane, I can't even imagine the stress of a traditional wedding.  We dodged that bullet girls!

    • 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?
