Update 10.1.14

 

Today is a flower update!!

 

 

 

Flower Girl Ball

I finished the ball, and I like it!  I ended up leaving the shells and 2 smaller starfish loose.  I like it!  The bow was a pain, but it's pretty simple.

Bridal Bouquet

The florist texted me pictures today of the cascade bouquet they put together with the flowers I ordered, and I love it!  I haven't seen it in person, but will pick it up tomorrow or tonight (2 sick kiddos means probably not tonight lol).  She's going to add the ribbon on the handle and a charm I picked out that says "Love".  Can't wait to see the finished product! (And then pack it away so it doesn't get dusty!)

Love the flower girl ball and your bouquet! I can't believe how much you've done already. I'm such a bum... I haven't even figured out my invitations yet.

With 2 small kids, you have to prioritize or it never gets done!  You've still got time for invites, especially if you have a wedding website.  I've found invites are really just to say "ok you really need to start looking at booking now...", at least with my family & friends.  Of course, I picked the most popular spring break weekend by accident so prices are pretty high right now for that week :(  still decently priced but sheesh!

Update 10.3.14

 

Some quick updates!

 

Cake Knife/Server:

I ended up purchasing the plain cake & knife set and will customize with charms/shells.  I've seen some cute ones with ribbons so I'll probably get "inspired" by some of those!

 

Toasting Glass Set:

Bit the bullet and purchase the customized toasting glass set that basically helped me to fall in love with a beach wedding/make up my mind I had to have one!  I purchased on eBay since it seemed it was the same sellers just with free shipping (probably to capture "bargain" ebayers!)

 

toasting glass Set

 

Survival Kits:

Today I had some down time, and designed the Survival Kit labels and test printed!  My printer is apparently out of colored ink (tho they look full to me...) so I had to do B&W.  Here are the computer images and what it looks like printed out (non-stuffed).  I designed the 2 images in Picmonkey with inspiration from @MK0386 and her thread here: http://www.bestdesti...rice-breakdown/

 

I put the front & back images together on a little less than half a page in word, flipped the back image around so it'd be right side up when I folded, and "grouped" them together so I could easily alter the size.  First try it was too big, this is pretty much perfect, aka the size I'm sticking with!

 

Front:

Back:

Together on Word doc:

B&W test print & staple

Wedding Bouquet:

Picked up my bouquet - I love it!  I may try to put a few white orchids in the cascade part, as it's a LOT of blue, but the bouquet itself is gorgeous.  Perfect size for what I wanted, as well!  

 

My dog was curious as to what I was doing, haha:

Here is the charm/ribbon on the stems:

Everything looks great.

 

What font is that? I really love how it looks and may use it somewhere myself.

I know exactly who the other BDW member you are speaking of, I loved her work too!

 

I think the safety net letter is a great idea.

I traveled to the USA in August and had a 'non notarized' letter from the kids dad and the border didn't even ask for it, but just in case I plan to have a 'notarized' letter from him as this is a little bit bigger of a deal than a trip to Seattle! lol!

 

What sunglasses are you buying?  I bought my kids these pink and orange sunglasses from the dollar store this summer but they were more adult size. I joked about getting the bridal party all a pair for a fun pictures but never did. Still debating doing it.

 

I may start my planning thread this weekend!  The kids are with their dad and my fiance is gone, so I have some time.... well probably hahah I plan to spend a lot of time in the mall! ha!
