    After seeing all of the great ideas on this message board in the past year and a half, I thought I would do a planning thread!

      We got engaged on January 3, 2011 and since I grew up in a beach town, I knew I couldnt imagine doing a traditional church wedding, but the question was: "Do we have the wedding in my home town or should we do a destination wedding?"


      While attending my cousin's wedding at the El Dorado Royale in 2010 in which my fiance was not able to attend, I found myself constantly saying to myself "Jeff would love this beach, dinner, resort, etc..." so I am sooo excited that I get to share that with him at our wedding!


      Neither myself or my fiance are very religious and both love the beach so we are getting married in the sand at Gazebo 55


      (When we get our pictures back, I will post my actual ceremony set up)


      Since I am a foot shorter than my fiance, we are getting the wooden runner so that I will be able to wear wedges without sinking into the sand:

        I am not a big bow person and didnt want to spend $4 per chair for a 20 minute ceremony, so I used these as my inspiration to add a little color and creativity to our ceremony:

        I will be sure to post some of my actual decor when we get back from wedding.

          We ordered our invitations and wedding programs from Wedding Paper Divas. They were great in helping me design exactly what we wanted!


          Our Invitations:




          Reply cards:




          Our wedding programs (the same design concept, but we got our programs on a pearlized paper):




          Inside programs:


          (Originally, they said I couldnt put anything on the back, but after I explained that I hated having the "Thank you" and "In memory of" underneath teh Wedding party headline, they put those 2 paragraphs on the back in a smaller, italic font in the tiffany blue).

                Hey everyone! Thanks for commenting, but I dont think I will be posting anything additional to this thread. I am ready to just enjoy married life and stop thinking about the planning that went in to our wedding


                Word of advice, create your planning thread before your wedding, while you are still excited about the planning aspect!


                Best wishes to you all!
