So we have 50 days to go. I feel like this has been the longest year of my life. I wish I had more then a year to plan everything. We have been engaged for two years but it took me one year to decide on a venue. Not funny at all..... Finally I was convinced by a dear friend who is a travel agent to do a destination wedding. I must say that I am super happy I chose this way. It will end up costing us half of what we would have paid to do a NYC wedding. We have about 50 guest coming 6 of them are children and 3 teenagers. I chose this resort because I felt it would accommodate all of our needs.
My guest are just as excited as we are. The kids can't stop talking about what they are planning to do. Our wedding will be on a Saturday @ 5pm, we are arriving four days before. Most of our guest will be coming in that Friday, but we do have some that chose to arrive earlier. As for planning I have been super busy with all of my DIY projects. I am a crafty person so to pay someone else to do my thing would be a no no. I have fun posting my project on another site I have joined.
We plan to bring our own center pieces, sashes, OOT bags, favor, runners, programs, wedding survival kits etc......
I cant wait for our guest to see the goodie bags we have for them. We wanted to thank them for attending our wedding. I'm about to freak out over our bags. (Note to future brides don't ship your things, they nay get stuck in customs) I have read nightmare stories about brides who dis so only to have the boxes arrive after they got married) I had to create a bag spreadsheet just to figure out who's bag will carry what. LOL
Personally I can't wait for this to be over with. I just want to put my bathing suit on lay by the pool and sip on a strong drink while I exhaling.
I"m almost to the finish line. Wish me luck.
