Looking forward to hearing about your wedding experiences!!! 

 

@desmiv - Congrats on finding your dress!! I've been having a hard time finding a dress. I'm hoping I'll have the YES to the Dress moment soon. A little stressed about it :\

Just today decided to add tumblers to my welcome bags because the other items in there just weren't filling it up :) and i found them on dollar tree for $1! each :) also got stickers from DavetDesigns on Etsy.

 

29 days til we leave, 32 til I do :)

@Sheaka and @bitbitz, thank you ladies.

 

@bitbitz, me too. It was not easy and I still find myself questioning my pick, but that's because I'm a very indecisive person sometimes. Don't worry though, you'll find it and you'll love it. Good luck!

 

@smileitseb, I am beyond excited for you so I can't even imagine the level that you must be at right now. Holy cow 29 days!!

 

I see that you did end up with 60 guests. What pkge did you take and are you doing the plated or buffet? What time is your ceremony? I would love to see it through the web cam. So exciting!! I bet you can't wait for it to hurry up and get here already. lol

 

Are you all set with everything? How was the planning stages with the planners so far?

@desmiv Thanks so much girl!!! 30 days til I do and 27 til we leave :)

 

Someone just dropped out yesterday (i hope there are NO more changes ugh lol) so we have 59 guests now :) We have the Dreams of Love package, the Ultimate package seemed to have a lot of stuff I didn't need. We are doing the buffet, originally BBQ but I just found out another bride is getting food from each of the buffets so I'm going to try to do the same thing! My ceremony is at 5 you should definitely watch!!! I'm soo excited I could scream lol

 

Everything is pretty set, well the big things. waiting on a few more things to get here for my welcome bags, have to get married, finalize menu, arrange transportation, finish our vows, finish ceremony script, get bikinis and cover ups, dress fitting, finalize music, finalize timeline, make welcome letter, itinerary and meet the guests cheat sheet, finish the wedding planner form, buy extra luggage, get ring cleaned.................LOL i guess I have a lot more to do but I know it will get done :)

 

oh and the mister needs to get his shirt, suspenders, tie, and shoes for the wedding lol. oh and our white outfits (we are having an all white welcome reception)

 

I see you are 14 months out, never too early to get started!!!

And, yes, the FI has to get his shirt, STILL! 


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

    Thanks for sharing... we have approximately 41 guest and I think it's interesting you aren't going with Ultimate package. What have you decided about cocktail hour music or did you switch that out for something else?
    Does anyone or did any of the past brides use real touch (silk) flowers for their bridal parties bouquets? If so where did you find a deal at?

    Funny thing I coordinate weddings on the side and I have a client getting married Sept 20th in Chicagoland area. It's actually keeping me calm on things for my own wedding since I have to keep my client *the bride* stress-free. Ha!

    I thought I'd share this website: http://destinationwe...cking-list.html

    It has a packing list and tips on traveling with your wedding dress  :)

    @pddcmc thank you for the packing list. I was looking for one of these. I'm so nervous about leaving something. One thing that I saw as a recommendation is to create a packing sheet for each suitcase so that you can double check your bags when you arrive.

    @smileitseb I can't wait to see your review of your experience with the makeup and hair peeps. I'm super nervous.

     

    Is anyone taking items with them for decorations? How are you transporting? I'm taking some lanterns and am nervous about checking them because I don't want the glass to break. Also, what about bringing your decorations back to town. Are you shipping them back or carrying them yourselves?

     

    Thanks and Happy Monday!


    I will put maps in the bags. Have you guys already started working on your letter to the guests? Any extras planned?
