I love these so much! And am hoping to be able to get calla lily bouquets at the resort for myself and the girls!

I can't look at this link for some reason. It's not working for me. Can you post them in the message? I'd really like to see them :)

 

So great that you are getting things ticked off the list. Isn't it such a great feeling?

I'm bringing a bunch of decorations down with me. My family is going to help with transporting the stuff and also because we have so many people booked we received a bunch of upgrades, one being extra weight in our luggage. It's worth it for me. I'm partly sad that I'm not having a wedding here (I love to plan weddings) so the decorations and DIY stuff will help me get over that rolleyes.gif. My vision is shabby chic, soft, romantic, antique, rustic all rolled into one! Bahaha!

 

Also started to make the flowers for my DIY fabric flower bouquets but I don't have pictures of them. Will post when I get more done.

ohhhhh I love these! What are you using the frame and LOVE letters for? I also kind of wanted to have shabby chic , rustic... I am so all over the place all the time! I just can't seem to get my ideas together! Did you just wrap the letters and frame in twine?

Here are my flowers I've started for my bouquet. They don't have centres yet. I'm going to use antique looking brooches. I was just using pearls in the one flower to see what it would look like.

Wow Alley these are amazing!! I love them! You are super crafty!

 

Can you tell me how you made the frame and LOVE? I absolutely love those and am thinking of making something similar for my guest book table.

We have never done a 2 week vacation and we pretty much go somewhere every year, so we are both really excited that we will be there for 2 weeks, not to mention the fact that FI only gets 3 weeks holidays, so there have been a few days here and there but we arent taking a "holiday" until the wedding, and last year we went away in May and then a week in BC last summer so it has been a long year thats for sure! On the other hand I have 6 weeks this year, and I carried one over and have 2 1/2 days per quater so I have been taking time here and there, but with 65 people coming it will be nice to sit back and relax once everyone has gone home! 4 month on Thursday!!!!

Omg I am so jealous! I only get two weeks vacation a year! Its brutal! But I guess its less then a year away! It will definitely be nice to have that extra week! If I had so much vacation time I totally would go for 2 weeks too! But with only two weeks, I'd rather go to Vegas in the fall to give me another "break" until I get more vacation haha!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
