    Okay I have a question for you ladies...

    I am trying to decide on jewelry now. My dress has a beading detail on the side which has pearls in it. 

     

    I am wondering if I should go in the more traditional bridal pearl direction or go in more of a beachy-pearl style. I am normally more drawn to laid back items rather then serious jewels but since it is my wedding day I just don't know what to do. I asked my sisters and they are split! :) 

     

    Does anyone have their jewelry picked out yet? Anyone go for more of a beachy-boho look rather then traditional with the jewelry?

      I haven't found anything yet but I want to go for a more beachy-boho look (thanks for a great way to described it!)  I'm actually thinking that I might even do some color since I'm not a rhinestone/diamond/pearl girl at all!  Bridesmaids are wearing navy blue dresses and I'm going to but them hot pink earrings and bracelets so I'm thinking I may do something similar for myself.

        Well thanks guys, at least I know I'm not alone!  We don't have a TA, and our hotel is made up of 3 bed/3 bath villas, so we have to match everyone up.  Obviously we can't do that without RSVPs!  Oh well, I knew this part was going to be kind of a headache.  It will be fine!  And soon I can just start tracking people down.  Haha.

        The RSVPs are a huge headache. I don't understand people. I fill out an RSVP the proper way and send it back immediately.  I have had 3 come back with NO NAMES. Who does that? They were all declines, but still., Oddly enough 2 of them wrote a little note stating that they are having a baby and won't be able to travel. Well, we have NO CLUE which one of our friends to congratulate! We have 2 friends that are expecting and have no clue who it is! One of them said we were one of the first people to know. I heard from other girls to number each RSVP and keep track on a spreadsheet in case this happens but I was so excited to send everything out, I totally forgot! Now, I'm kicking myself in the butt!


        62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

          yeah i heard AFTER i sent mine that you can number them with black light pen, and it only shows up when you hold it under a black light!  genius.  but it doesn't help me, now does it?  haha.  oh well.  next time we get married... (totally joking of course.)

            i found jewelry difficult too!  FI's mom made me a freshwater pearl necklace that is pretty unique a while back, and i LOVE it, so i just decided to roll with that.  this may not be helpful, but i think you should maybe try both styles with your dress and choose what you love.  you can't go wrong!

                I actually posted a question on another board last night related to your post MK...everyone on here talks about vista print, what do you get with them. I'm tempted to buy this (bc let's be honest, I love groupons) but I'm not sure what I'd use it for.

                  Hi! Sorry I didn't see your question in the other thread. I use vistaprint for so much! So far for: Luggage tags http://www.bestdesti...cs#post_1874230 Key/tip money holder http://www.bestdesti...cs#post_1874229 My RSVP postcard http://www.bestdesti...cs#post_1874225 Also, for another postcard that I created for my OOT bag, as well as a "Spanish Phrases" rack card that I designed. I also plan to design a pre travel brochure and some other things that are currently slipping my mind. Hope this helps... The possibilities are endless! :)
