    @nicofio22 I love Tradesy.com and recommend it to anyone trying to sell some stuff that is still in good shape but you no longer use.  It's very simple to set up and I get the money right away in my paypal account.  For surveys I've been doing them on off for years on line to make some extra cash on the side, I save my gift cards to buy things off of Amazon.  Here is a website that has all the survey site that are available and what they are about. http://www.surveypolice.com/

    I'm a member of harrispoll, myview, mysurvey and I thnk one other one.  I get surveys emailed to me everyday and if I have time I'll sit down and answer some questions and get points then when you reach a certain number of points you can trade them in for gift cards etc.

      Church Ceremony Rosary/Lasso 

      18ea36471ca14ca396dca674914bb619.jpg

      Since we are getting married at our church before cancun we wanted to incorporate the lasso/rosary ceremony and this is the rosary we bought.  Its beautiful and is something nice we can pass down to our future kids and will always be blessed and stay in our family.

       

      Shoes for Both Wedding Dresses

       

      Shoes to go with the at home church wedding dress.  Found them at Lord and Taylor and with a coupon they came out to $40.00.

      Shoes for Cancun Wedding dress.  Found these on Ruelala.com on sale for $89.99 and I loved the beading it goes great with my belt's beading.

      Earrings

      My fiance actually bought these earring for me as my "wedding gift" he designed them with the jeweler who also made my engagement ring and wedding band.  I love it and can't wait to wear them.

      Wedding Band

      I went with an eternity wedding band it fit just right with my engagement ring and can be worn alone if i choose not to wear my engagement ring.

       I don't have a picture of my fiance's ring but its very similiar to this ring the middle part is more of hammered look he didn't want anything too shiny since he works at a Jail as a probation officer and that would probably scratch a lot.  The brushed/hammered look is less fancy and more practical for him.  We bought our rings last year when the price was low and we we got great deals on both rings. The jeweler also gave us a little discount since my fiance bought my engagement ring through them.

      The frames I bought at Walmart and Home goods and just sprayed painted them gold.  The signs my graphic artist brother in law helped me with some and the some I did by downloading fonts on Dafont.com. The runner I bought on etsy they are very cute and add a little something to the table and very reasonably priced.  This is the seller https://www.etsy.com...shopheader-name.  The coral napkins and gold rings I actually bought from a BDW bride and they also add a pop of color that I was looking for.  A lot of my candle holders and items came from Michaels with coupons and I just spray painted them gold to match my color scheme.

       

      Wedding Favors DIY

      I ordered my wedding favor maracas off of amols.com for a really great price and then just customized it myself with the help of my brother in law again.  He's so freaking talented lol I need to get him a nice thank you gift after the wedding.

      Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Festivities!!

      When I first decided on the DW I told my bridal party/sisters I didn't want any pre wedding celebrations because didn't want them spending money and for any guests to feel obligated to also give gifts etc.  My sister/maid of honor told me to stop talking crazy and that I should do all the same stuff that any other bride would do at home.  My maid of honor/sister and other sisters planned the best parties they did an awesome job at both my bridal shower and bachelorette party.  I'm so grateful for them and happy they didn't listen to me. lol  Here are some pics.

      My sisters are little crazy and surprised me with some "entertainment" but it was all in good fun and all the ladies had a great time at the bachelorette party.  


      Wedding Day Gifts for the Parents

      We bought the mothers and my grandparents embroidered hankies and they came out great.  I used this seller on Etsy https://www.etsy.com...shopheader-name.

      Wedding Day Robe

      I loved this robe from Love Ophelia and took advantage of a sale and ordered one with my new last name.  I can use it for wedding pictures and even after the wedding.

      Pre Travel Mailers/Luggage Tags

      I designed my brochures on Vistaprint and used a coupon code to purchase them.

      20140806 134653
      20140806 134643
      20140806 134635

      The luggage tags my brother in law designed for me and the plastic holder and loops I bought off of Amazon.

       

      20140806 134800
      20140806 134804
      20140806 134812

       

      I'm going to mail out the brochure with all the wedding events/timeline, resort information, TA/transfer confirmations and excursion/spa list to all of my guests. This way they have all information in advance and will be prepared to take full advantage of all the resort has to offer.

      Haha I love the stripper pics!!

       

      You are sooo organized, and your wedding is going to be gorgeous. You have an amazing brother in law! So talented. How did he make the "shake for a kiss" tags? Is it cricut? Would love to do something like that


      Also, did you upgrade your menu or does Le Blanc allow plated meals as well? Palace just has buffets included, and it's like $55 or something to upgrade to a plated meal

      @acw271011 Thanks!! I'm definitely going to share photos after the wedding! Only 36 more days until we are off to Cancun and still some DIY projects to finish.   :wacko:

      @tygrrlily Haha I know the stripper was a surprise and all the ladies loved him.  I just couldn't stop laughing, I mean my mom and grandma were there.  It was funny.  :P  lol

       

      We tried making it on the circuit but they weren't coming out right so he made a design of it and then we bought a tag punch cut out at Michaels and just used that to make the tags.  I have the pdf of the template if you want it I can email it to you.  Are you doing maracas for a favor?

      We didn't have to upgrade to a plated menu that was actually a choice either plated or buffet.  I really like having a plated dinner for the reception.  We are having our reception on the Terrace so there is no upgrade charge for the plated dinner.  There is a charge if we were to have it on the beach though.  For our rehearsal dinner we are doing the buffet a little less formal.
