Thanks, it really has been a labor of love doing most things DIY and steal away.  I can't believe we are less than 3 weeks away until we leave for Mexico!  I'll definitely post after the wedding anything I want to sell, there will be a lot of things I'm sure.   :D

What's that saying? Keep calm and... Lol. Enjoy these days (easy for me to say now- November will be a different story) and remember how jealous at least this one bride to be is that you'll be on a beach celebrating in 3 weeks!

You have a truly amazing planning thread!! I'm sure all of your guests will love all the little touches you've put together! I am also doing maracas for guests and would love it if you could post or email the tags you used (mmckiever11atgmaildotcom).

 

The cardboard cut out of your dog is hilarious. It's difficult to incorporate pets at a destination wedding but kudos to you because I think you nailed it :)

I did the same thing to incorporate my dog into my wedding day!!  I ordered a cake topper with her.  My mom is also getting a small frame to attach to my bouqet with a photo of her.

Another DIY Project

Flower Bouquets and Boutonnieres for Home Ceremony

 

I'm getting married tomorrow at my home church then having a small dinner with my family and knew I wanted flowers so it felt like a wedding.  But I didn't want to order them from a local florist because the numbers I was getting for just the small amount of flowers I wanted was getting to be too much and it was money I didn't want to spend so close to leaving for Cancun..  Instead of ordering the flowers from a local florist I decided I would do them myself.  I went to my local farmers market on sunday and bought several bouquets of different flowers and then made my own bouquets and boutonnieres, it was super easy and so cheap.  Here is the final outcome and I only spent $15 for all the flowers minus the floral tape, ribbon and pins but that was probably under $10.  Not bad for a DIY project lol.  So for any girls who plan to buy their flowers from a florist or costco in Mexico you can definitely do it in Cancun just practice once before and get help it will take some time.

We just took photos of him with a good camera and my brother in law who is a graphic artist blew it up and printed it out and glued it onto a foam board.  He does these cut outs all the time for my nephews birthdays of cartoon characters so one of my dog was simple.  Its very easy to do on your own but there are also some websites that will do it for you and make it a cardboard cut out. I forget the site I was going to use but just google it cardboard cut out and I think you can upload your own photo.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
