I have seen those handkerchiefs and think they are so cute and special.  Was definitely thinking about getting one for my mother in law.  @NJBride2014 did you get one for each parent?

@Sabes44 I got one for my mom, grandma, grandpa he's walking me down the aisle, my mother in law and my father in law. The seller that I posted from etsy was great to work with but I would order with time because it does take a couple weeks to get it.

I love this website, and I am glad I found it, but man for someone who is a self proclaimed, very UNartistic person, I sure do have a ton of DIY projects floating around in my head. Haha!

We bought the dress, necklace for BMs and suits, ties and socks for groomsmen, plus we are paying for both mom's and BM's makeup and hair.

I would love to help if your were closer! :) I am an event planner and used to do weddings also.  We are also doing a legal ceremony here at at courthouse the week before and I have to go out of town for work that week, so that will be "fun" leading up to it lol

Don't forget to relax and enjoy the "ride" it will all be over before you know it!

I'm definitely surprised by how much food + drink costs for the wedding at an ALL INCLUSIVE! Seems so silly when everyone would be eating and drinking anyway. I'm sure some of it is for staffing but, I would call it a service charge instead of telling people to pay for something their guests already paid for.

 

I've accepted it, but still :)

    I thought that an all inclusive would be an affordable alternative, but looking at the package prices, there are so many things to add on and consider!

    That is how they really make their money!  I am just trying to stick with my original plan of keeping it simple.  Maybe adding a few things, if they will bring a lot to the wedding, but otherwise sticking with simple!
