    Oh, well, though- right? Lol I'm just glad I came up with something nice and sentimental and meaningful but not an hour long! Haha

    Oh my goodness you have to pay for a symbolic wedding? That is crazy! Our resort includes the legal ceremony in your package, but if you opt for a symbolic it is free but you get no credit from not using the legal one in your package. However, I do have to pay the pastor but that was my own choice to hire him. Otherwise like i said t hey would do the silly 3 minute ceremony. :)

    Yeah... That's what I said- crazy!! It's not just a few bucks, either! I made a big stink about it so yet kind of sort of did something to help but barely!! Oh, well... They nickel and dime ya to death, but it's still going to be awesome and better than a wedding here in the states for the money...

    Well, goal accomplished!! I am sticking with the script I posted earlier this week and I have completed the design for the ceremony program. :) I haven't printed and put together all the programs yet, so I still have that project, but the design is done and the wording is finished (thank God!!). Here is a sample program I printed. It's front and back and each guest will get a raffia fan as well. Posted Image What do ya'll think???

      Hahaha, we are totally on the same page as far as our weddings go!!! Hilarious.

       

      Although I'm not going to even try to compete with the queen of DIY projects and graphic design (ahem...Megan :) ), we have the same vibe for a lot of our stuff!!! i.e...sentimental but FUN. :) Our programs have the same gist based off of one that I saw on Pinterest. AND apparently we have the same taste in music because I'm walking to Israel's version of "What a Wonderful Life"! It was my grandparent's song...every time i hear it I start to tear up, so I am just hoping I'm not ugly crying down the aisle because of the emotions the song drudges up. How lovely would that be to greet my groom with smeared mascara and snot? Lol. Anyways, I love his music b/c it gives classic songs an island twist. Excellent choice on your song, his over the rainbow version is one of my favorites!

       

      Here are our programs and then our Welcome Bag inserts. I'm going to tie the programs together with twine since I used twine in my invitations too. The front of the program is just us, the insides are the order of events and then a "thank you" and the back is an acknowledgment to those that aren't with us (our grandparents and a dear family friend of mine) in addition to a poem my grandfather wrote my grandmother years ago. He was a big time sailor and they had the most incredible love story. He passed away last February, but my grandmother will be there in Mexico, so I was so happy she gave me this poem to incorporate it into our wedding day. The color is a little different on the two inner pieces, but oh well, I'm not going to fret over a pantone number. :)

       

      Love love love your programs, Megan. As always, you did a fabulous job and really should look at wedding event planning as a career, my dear. I also LOVE the gist of your wedding, we're definitely on the same wave length :)

       

      VIVA LA MEXICO!!!

            I LOVE these! The bracelets are so much fun and the earrings and necklace are classic elegance.

                Super awesome! I love the poem made me cry knowing it was written by your grandfather. So sweet! 

                Alright you and Megan are starting to make me feel lacking again!!! :)

                  So pretty! I love the bracelets! I am such a fan of color I still cant decide on jewelry! I keep thinking because of my dress i need to just get simple regular wedding jewelry (pearls and fake diamonds) but I just love vintage and love color so I cant decide!
