It looks like I've got almost everything done for shopping...which was a ton of fun, so I'm sad to see that one end, but oh well. My wallet will NOT be sad, lol.

 

I'm putting the OOT bags together now that I have all the stuff. I'm also working on a new project: a "Who's Who of This Wedding Crew" yearbook for all 90 guests. It's fun! I'm putting in a couple pictures of each guest, if it's a couple, I'm also including their wedding photo and date of their wedding. Then a fun fact about each person. My fiance is a bit of a comedian, so he's having fun with the facts about his friends.

 

Also, for all of the mid-June brides, my dad just informed me that the day after our wedding is Father's Day (our wedding is June 15th)!!! How special is that?!!!! So now I'm trying to think of ways to incorporate a Father's day gift or aknowledgement for all the dads that will be there.

 

I'm floating b/c it's officially almost two months away now that we've hit April. WOO-HOO

I'm so glad that it was what you were looking for! :)

 

Here are a few pics of how I organized the printouts into a Wedding Planning Notebook

 

 

 

 

 

Along the side, I have my main tabs: 

1. Budget/Timelines/Calendars

2. Guests

3. Attire

4. Rehearsal Dinner

5. Ceremony

6. Cocktail Hour and Reception

7. Photography

8. Travel & Accommodations

 

Along the top I have the main dividers divided into sub categories such as decorations, contracts, etc. This notebook has been so helpful and makes me feel so organized!

 

For anyone else that is interested, here is the link again for the printouts:

Go to the link then click on "Wedding Timeline/Checklists" It is 57 pages and like I said, there are checklists for everything. Hope this helps!! :)

 

Happy Planning Ya'l!!

    Hi Ladies! 

     

    Today I have finally started with our OOT bags!  FI is being so helpful!  Here's mint and lip balm I have ordered.  I used the same designed so they will match (will have to buy the mint separately):

     

    http://www.pricewise...tin-favors.html

     

    http://www.pricewise...balm-p-864.html

     

    We have 44 guests so I have ordered 55 of each to be safe.  I'm looking for ideas for the personalized tote bags.  I really like canvas and I will need about 36 (1 per couple and 1 per single traveler).  Please let me know what you have used for that.

     

    For Mexican Brides:  

    - we wanted to include a small bottle of tequila in the OOT.  What would you do:  1) buy it in mexico 2) buy empty bottles in the US, use personalized labels and fill them with tequila in Mexico?

    - are you bringing tylenol, tums, alka-seltzer, etc for the OOT with you or are you buying it in Mexico.  I don't want to "smuggle" drugs into the country and be fined!  Any advice on this?

     

    Cute idea for mexican brides:

    -I'm waiting to hear from my WC, but I would like to order Mexican Wedding Cookies and add them to the OOT with a cute wrap.  

     

    For all brides:

    - Is anyone including Sudoku or any games in the bags?  I can't find them online to buy in bulk.  Any suggestions?

     

    Other items I am considering:  Maps, hand-sanitizer, shot glasses, door hangers, Spanish 101, etc.

     

    Thanks everyone!!

        Is anyone doing a boudoir shoot? Mines scheduled for 4/13. I am getting so nervous! I'm going to meet the photographers for a consultation on Tuesday so hopefully that will put me more at ease! I've talked to some girls that have already done it and they say it was amazing and they are so happy they did it! I just just so not "me"! I don't know how to 'look' sexy! Haha! I hope they can help me out with that... I'm sure a few glasses of wine will help as well!

         

        On another note, my bridal shower is this Saturday! Exciting! 71 day countdown!! :-)


        62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

          I'm toying with the idea but it would definitely have to be more of an "artistic" shoot since I'm the fattest I've ever been! Lol! (Thanks babe for proposing now instead of when I was skinny! Lol) Let me know how it goes!

            I love it!  Thank you so much for suggesting the site.  They have a few bags on sale for $100 (sets of 20) and a couple of designs could work for us!

            THese are the ones I ordered, but they even have Mexico themed/Spanish ones as well. If you sign up for their emails, you might get a coupon to use towards the purchase too. 

             

            Also i was having trouble finding the soduku books as well. I know our dollertree had crossword puzzles...but that didnt seem as fun! Let me know if you find a place.

            I'm so happy to see you are doing one bc I want to do one but can't decide, so since you live near me...where are you going?? Maybe if you don't mind you could PM me the info and also let me know how it goes for you!! Thanks so much in advance :)

              I got my activity books made (ordered the customized pdf on etsy, printed and put together myself), and the crayons I ordered to go with them came today - yay!
