I'm getting married June 24, 2013 at the Royal Playa del Carmen. Since it's starting to get closer I thought I better start a planning thread to keep all my planning organized and in one place. I have found BDW to be so helpful with my planning and am so grateful to all the other brides on here who share their ideas, templates, pictures, etc. I don't know how I'd get through this without you all!
My fiance and I got engaged June 24, 2012 while on vacation in the Dominican Republic. We actually first got together a few years ago in while vacationing with mutual friends in Mexico and so we decided what better place to tie the know than where we first got together. In case you didn't notice, we are also getting married on the same day we got engaged. We figured the less dates to try to remember the better, ha. Here is a picture of the bling.
The first thing I did was choose who I wanted to be in the wedding and tried to come up with a thoughtful way to ask them. Since it was summer, I purchased wine totes from target and got them each a bottle of wine that they like. I ordered customized wine bottle lables from Etsy ( http://www.etsy.com/...DoArtsyWeddings) asking them to be my bridesmaid/maid of honor. I then made each of them a customized WV wine glass because they are all big WV fans. I purchased the glasses at the Dollar Store and the paint at Michael's. They turned out great I thought. Then I made a card for each of them and gave them each their gift. They all loved them!
Next up were the save the dates. I did a boarding ticket type save the date that I purchsed on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/...isamariedesigns). I then bought raffia at Michael's and ordered silver starfish off Ebay to tie on to the front to add a little pop.
