        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

           

          Pick a Seat Sign

            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

             

            Thank you Sign

              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 :)
