June 2013 brides- what are you doing?

Recommended Posts

So ladies I did my boudoir shoot on Saturday and received my photos yesterday! I am so happy I did it. They came out great and are very tasteful. Can't wait to make them into his "little black book" to be delivered to him the morning of the wedding. If your hesitant about doing them, I say go for it. It was a huge confidence booster for myself too! My one recommendation is to get your make up professionally done. I got mine done at MAC, you have to buy $50 worth of make up for them to do it and I needed to stock up on some make up anyways so it worked perfect. I had them focus on my eyes and they came out wonderful in the pictures!

 

We also moved into our new house over the weekend and we are trying to get settled in. This past few days has been non-stop! My goodness. But now it's time to focus on wedding stuff again! Sunday was our 2 month mark! According to my countdown on my phone, we are 59 days, 6 hours and 13 minutes away.... But who's counting?! LOL ;-)

I have a super simple ceremony program template that I created in .ppt I can e-mail you.  We are keeping ours simple.  I did a few versions and Fi and I picked the one we liked the most.

 

You have done a lot!!!

 

  • My dress should arrive by April 20, then I will sort alterations.  Hoping not much since it is a simple knee length dress
  • Girls dresses ordered and I should have mid-May
  • Fi's outfit is complete, we bought his shirt yesterday.
  • Most of the OOT contents have been purchased - I need one more item then I can start putting together
  • Templates for the OOT bags completed - once I know which size bag I am using, I can print, score and cut.
  • Tags for the maracas have been printed.  Should receive the maracas on the 18th.  Then I can punch a hole and then tie the tag with ribbon.
  • Luggage tags printed for the bags - we are not doing tote bags for the OOTs.  Just regular fuchsia and orange gift bags.  I should receive the luggage tags and loops next week so I can laminate.
  • Music sorted for the prelude and ceremony.
  • Mugs have been ordered and the templates created.  All I have to do is make sure they fit the mug, print and then insert.
  • We have our wedding bands and I love them
  • We are going this morning to get our marriage license since we are doing the legal ceremony the weekend before the PDC wedding

 

I still have lots to do.  My list for this week entails:

  • Finishing welcome letters and getting printed from VP
  • One pager for the OOT bags of spanish phrases
  • Timeline of events (both for the OOT bags for all guests as well as detailed ones for the WC, my girls the day of, etc)
  • Finalizing the welcome dinner details
  • Updating our website and getting headcount for welcome dinner
  • I know there is more, that is off the top of my head and only on one cup of coffee

-I have had my 2nd dress alteration and will pick it up in a couple weeks

-Fiance's suit is purchased, but not altered (khaki linen suit)

-All OOT bag items (survival kits, insulated mugs, decks of cards, door hangers, gum) have been purchased except snacks (I don't want them to get stale)

-All centerpiece items and chair sashes have been purchased. i am renting glass vases from the resort and bringing aqua stones, fake orchids, floating candles to put inside. The vases will sit on brown "fishing net" scattered with seashells that I am also bringing.

-All guests are booked/rooms are paid

-Wedding bands have been purchased and picked up

-Bridesmaid/Groomsmen outfits purchased (coral sundresses and aqua linen shirts with khakis)

-Bridesmaid/Groomsmen gifts purchased (embroidered beach towels and beach bags, engraved buck knives)

-Parent Gifts purchased (picture frames from etsy)

-Guest book purchased (coffee table book of Jamaica)

-Hostess gifts purchased (custom embroidered wine bags from etsy)

-Customs thank you notes purchased

-Marriage license info sent to resort

-STD and Invitations mailed

 

 

One of the things left on my list is music. Are you girls using a DJ? If so, are you giving them a list of every song to play or just telling them what kind of music you like and letting them choose songs? Also, I still haven't made programs. Do any of you girls have  template for a simple program? I am not trying to put a bunch of notes and information on them, I just want a list of the wedding party/minister/music.

 

Thanks!!

Madison

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
    • Hello, we're butterfly farmers and pleased to be bringing eco-friendly butterfly releases back to destination weddings in Jamaica. Videos of our releases can be found here: https://youtu.be/LIzidGsR89o One love,   Nadine   Fruit Hill Butterfly Farm fruithillbutterflies.com
