Hi!

 

I have learned so many priceless tips off of this website, I felt it was my duty to share with everyone my experiences as well. Please feel free to comment on anything you may see!

 

My boyfriend and I met March, 2010. He proposed to me on December 28th, 2012 in a cozy cabin in Texas Hill Country.

After many weeks of research and soul searching, I realized that a beach destination wedding was the only way to do it.  I have never used a travel agent previously, but knew that would be the best place to start. I enlisted the services of a local agent I had met at the Bridal Extravaganza, however I was not satisfied at all with the service. I then hired a 'master secrets agent' I found through my resort's facebook page. 

 

 

I quickly made most of the major decisions: destination, date, wedding party.

 

My next step was to ask my bridesmaids and MOH to stand by my side. 20120207_150105[1].jpg20120207_150137[1].jpg

Our save the dates, which were sent to all of our guests in February.  Our resort, SMB, helped produce this photo (it's not us) and I had them made on Zazzle.20120128_094610[1].jpg

Although, I am unsure of the total number of guest that will attend, we already have over 20 booked. I decided to start working on my OOT bags.  I just received the first item. All the females will recieve a white mug with a top (from Factory 21), and the boys will reveive a black koozie.20120612_151128[1].jpg

I really wanted to print personalized stamps for our invitations, but realized they were double the cost. Instead, I had photo stickers in black and white printed to seal my inviites. I had these m

made by Snapfish for under $40 for 150 of them.
