Summer12's Planning thread **PHOTOS**

Recommended Posts

Okay so here is what I have for my OOT bag so far...  My weeding weekend survival kit.  Includes simple meds, cough drops, laughy taffy, gum, chapstick, hand sanitizer, pens, and a few other things.

A door hanger.  I plan on putting together a welcome packet, and this will go in it...

This is the bag I will be using (1/2 off after christmas- glad I choose a christmas color LOL).  I got the sandal deck of cards and the ID holders from Oriental trade.  I will throw a few ring pops in.  I also bought plastic cups for everyone that are personalized but I haven't receive them yet... stay tuned.  We had planned to do personalized flip-flops but I have too many people in my family with big feet...

I for my bridesmaids I got a few more pampering supplies (might add to this)...

The guys will also get some cigars with their flip flops.

I'm keeping decorations for the reception area simple.  Every place setting will have one of these.. Amols.com they were just over a dollar a piece after shipping.  I painted the handles a darker green and glazed them so they match my colors more.

Also on everyone's spot will be this menu...

I got all of my paper at Hobby Lobby as well whenever it was 40% off.

I bought these chair ribbons from another BDW bride, who I also got the idea of the maracas from.  I think the ribbon and maracas will add a pop of color.  I plan on going into Cancun when I get there and purchasing glass vases and filling them with limes for the centerpieces.  If I find cheap white roses in Cancun I might add them as well. If this plan fails I'll just get something simple from MP.  I realize that this plan might result in going without a centerpiece but that's okay with me.

My garter looks something like this.  Since FI is an OSU fan he is going to be in for a surprise!  Can't wait to see what he thinks...

I used a glossy clear acrylic sealer- it's a spray-on. "Plaid" brand, I think I got that at Hobby Lobby too lol. And just so you know the the "big" variety of maracas from Amols are really big.  Unfortunately you can't order mediums in a specific color, but if you're okay with just a variety of bright colors you might go with the mediums, they would be easier to fit in a suit case!  We were going to wait and buy some there but I decided not to risk it...

Great, thanks! Oh no, don't tell me that! :) I want blue and yellow ones, so I have to order the large ones.  Here's to hoping they all fit in a suitcase! Are you putting them in a box and then putting them in the suitcase, or what are you planning on doing?

Thanks for the tip on the Medium Maracas!!  I was getting worried about the space they were going to take up and I never even noticed they made them a little smaller.  How long did it take for you to get your maracas after you ordered them?  Right now it says the medium ones are on backorder.  We still have a little over 5 months so I'm hoping they'll get some more.  I'm not crazy about getting all of the colors, but I think I read somewhere on BDW that they would work with you if you requested certain colors when ordering the variety.  Thank again! Great job so far!

We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
