Jenny's Planning Journal - Grand Sirenis 2013

Ceremony Space

 

This is a picture that's very close to what I would love to see on my wedding day (it's a photo borrowed from Sgreen99 who also just got married at Grand Sirenis)

But I'd ask for peach colored sashes instead of the coral to match my wedding colors

 

I've also ordered buri fans from http://www.beau-coup.com but it's now sitting with UPS since they won't deliver it after 5pm when I'll be home from work. And I was charged a $40 brokerage fee on top of what I paid so it turned out way more than I wanted to spend. I'd look around some more if you're in Canada.

Kissing Balls

I made 10 kissing balls to hang off the chairs down the aisle. It took around 40 mins to make each ball. The first couple took over an hour because I didn't have a wire cutter. I always do things the hard way. If you plan on doing this project, please get yourself a wire cutter - it really makes life so much easier.

The kissing balls will also double as a center piece after for the reception

 

Unity Sand Kit

I got this beautiful unity sand frame from etsy

My DIY Chalkboards

 

I plan on having a table right before the ceremony space where guests can read this chalkboard sign I made from an Ikea frame and a can of spray on chalkboard paint, and pick up a bottle of water before the ceremony begins

Cocktail Hour

 

We're going to have a champagne toast after the wedding then cocktail hour begins while Chris and I and our bridal party goes to get our pictures done. 

 

I learned of this great free printables website through AlexisinJamaica (http://www.weddingchicks.com) and we made some thank you signs and a cocktail drink sign with some straws

My DIY Straws & Cocktail Sign

 

I'll create a DIY Thread to show how I made all the things I made for the wedding. I made these flags off Microsoft Word and it was super easy to make. And I ordered these eco friendly paper straws from a Canadian supplier http://www.greenmunch.ca 

 

I just photoshopped our Thank You sign and plugged in my own text. My friends know that I have a love for lame puns, so they're gonna appreciate my punny cocktail sign using mine and Chris' last names haha

Great planning thread! Your shoes are GORGEOUS!! im a sucker for Designer brands! I am using printables from wedding chicks including the thank you sign. If u don't mind the silly question, mine printed on the entire 8.5 x 11 paper but yours looks a little smaller which I like because maybe I can display on each table. What size is your sign/frame?

Thank you :) I've been soo busy I wish I had more time to post more pictures. The signs I printed them 4 x 6 - you can use Window's printing wizard to set that up or just change the image size in Adobe Photoshop. Just make sure that the dpi/resolution is at 300 otherwise it will come out really grainy :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
