    Thank you girls for all you help and support over the past few months. It’s because of all of you, I got through all the craziness of planning and second guessing. I was also put in contact with so many great vendors I never would have found on my own.

    I hope some of my ideas and projects help others just starting out.

    VENDORS

    Minister
    John Fagan

    Makeup/Hair- Had a trial in June, but didn't want to do same exact thing because we were having engagement photos taken. (and Matt was there!)
    Makeup was a little strong, but hair was beautiful.

    Wedding Hair (Edyta's Hair). love this!

    Wedding Day Jewelry

    Earrings
    Ordered these but have not received yet. Click the image to open in full size.

    Hair Barrette- also from Whiteaisle.com. I’m very excited to wear this. It’s sooo pretty in person and there is nothing cheap about the piece. It actually has a nice weight to it and feels very solid. I would think this could easily sell for $40+.

    CourtHouse ceremony dress- Macy's

    Courthouse earrings. Had these made from etsy.com KimberlyAnn's
    This vendor was sooo wonderful to work with. She custom made bracelets and earrings for my bridesmaids and when I couldn't find something to match my great-grandmother's necklace, she created these gold and pearl bead earrings.. very pretty! She even threw in a cute pair of earrings for free!

    Bridesmaid Dresses- Nordstrom's - great return policy and very helpful via phone when trying to track down a size that was no longer showing on website. My 3 girls are all different sizes so this dress was great for all.

      DIY Items

      We bought fans for Oriental Trading Co and wrapped ribbon on handles. These will be placed on ceremony chairs.

      Save The Dates- Printed at Vistaprint.com
      DIY design. I really love the boarding pass invites but knew I didn’t have the patience. Because we created a website, I wanted to just send postcards out directing people to our site. They turned out pretty cute and VistaPrint.com and their free postcard offer was great.

      Guestbook- Photobook from MPix. I don’t love the quality but I think the idea is very cute. I was expecting glossy photo paper but instead it’s matte. At least it will be easier to write on it. Design is a chronological order of our life so far stating with 2003 and going until present. It includes photos of us fixing up our first house, our cat, and some of the many trips we’ve taken together. I’m a bit of moron and made the type on the first page huge.. oh well. The cover says “The Story of Us” Throughout are quotes I thought were cute.

        Invites- Not a DIY

        Eiffel Printing & Design-
        Brittany- Click the image to open in full size.
        Click the image to open in full size.

        We’ve gotten so many comments about how beautiful our invites are. Lots of people took them to work to show others. They came in a box to all our guests and I’ve very glad we chose to have Brittany and her team design and print these for us. Some things are best left up to the professionals and she did a great job! I would recommend Brittany to anyone looking invitations.

        Everything else I did on my own using our color printer at home. I did order cut paper for the backing sheets and place cards using the same paper stock from our invitations. Envelopements brand. Colors: Belize and Cocoa. The white paper is cardstock. Manufacturer: Wausau Paper

        Place cards
        Take note. Starfish are stinky.. I left them outside in an opened box in the sun for well over a month and they still stunk. Fabreeze… just spray them and they smell so much better!
