What about doing a drink saying? 'To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold' or 'drink in my hand feet in the sand' or 'something old, something new, something to hold your brew' haha there are tonnes

@IzzyDeee Wow! That's impressive! Is it heavy?

Yeah, I've thought about that, but the FI says it's too cheesy.  <_<

Thank you! All the pieces are from people close to me; like my great grandma and great aunt who passed away, and some pieces are from my grandma, my moms sister and my moms! I wanted to do it since I'm not a huge fan of flowers to begin with and this is something I can keep for forever, and pass down to my daughter one day
It's about 5 lbs so not too bad!! @pddcmc

I love the sayings that Calgarybride mentioned. It's exactly what I was thinking but when it comes to rhymes in English I'm totally useless haha. 

 

Also, if you don't like the writing on the tags, how about printing the text on a clear label and only worrying about the background of the tags? You could put the shell in the background and then stick on the label with the saying on top. Or put the label and then the stars on top. I also like the idea of sticking the hollow starfish on the hole of the tag, so the string will come through it :)

 

Another idea, with the drawback being that it might take a lot of ink, is to create a label, a little bit smaller than the tag, then  you can design any kind of tag you want on the computer, then print them off and just stick them on the tags. I obviously have too much free time and thought I'd try a few things haha. I attached them here so feel free to use that or change it however you want, or you know, trash them if you think they're horrible haha. The measurements are probably wrong, I was just having some fun :) and I hope I'm not intruding into your planning. 

 

I got all the pictures from this site, the possibilities are endless! So many nice things :D

...ha....ha...still, have yet to do that...


@TinkerSofi aw! I love your ideas and I'm sorry I didn't see them first! I just kept on keepin' on with my original tags because I figured the amount of time put in to them wouldn't be worth it - guests would look at them for 5 seconds and then toss them in the trash.

To Do:

  • Finalize Wedding Planner Form (just a couple things to iron out, otherwise this can be checked off)
  • Finalize Guest List & Seating Chart (gotta love those stragglers...)
  • Finalize Ceremony script (FI will do this when he get back from his business trip). (and print a copy, just in case!)
  • Music - getting ready, ceremony, first dance, AND reception
  • Design and order stickers for cups
  • "Stuff" for cups - Instead of doing OOT bags, we are putting things inside the cups and attaching a tag to each one
  •           Finish purchasing items for cups - I bought chewable Airborne packets, mini Johnson & Johnson first aid kits (obvi these won't fit in the cups), and mini Aloe Vera bottles for 97 cents at Target     :). I also bought plastic baggies (I've read several times that people always find use for these?) and mint LifeSavers. Will will also add pepto and lip balm (still need to purchase).
  • Finish said tags for cups
  • Write Welcome "letter" - this will also be "stuffed" in the cups. This will include a welcome and thank you note from us, currency conversion ($1 USD = x pesos), restaurants and their hours & dress codes, an About Us section, a Who's Who section with bridal party and our moms, wedding day itinerary and reception menu, the resort map (this indicate wedding event locations), "tips", a list of places people traveled from to be at our wedding, and resort activities.
  • FI's shirt (we have the pants and shoes)
  • Print Alternative Guestbook (FI designed it)
  • Start packing - I'm 97.4% 98.6% sure we will need to purchase an extra suitcase, or two
  • Dog sitter - start taking the dogs to the sitter (as I have mentioned before, we are new to the state...and unfortunately, our dogs are spoiled and slow to warm up to people...the last thing we need is to worry about our fur babies)
  • Go to the courthouse and make things legal    :wub:
  • Exchange money and get traveler's checks
  • Finish place cards and table numbers
  • Get e-ring cleaned
  • Have final fitting (08 April)
  • Purchase chalk markers or dustless chalk for chalk board easel
  • Buy a few new bikinis and rompers.
  • OH! and I want a big, floppy sunhat   :D
  • Gifts for moms, MOH, and best man (any ideas here? I am thinking about paying for our moms to go on an excursion of their choice. I don't know what else to do or what to get MOH & best man)
  • Appointment for waxing
  • TRY to PATIENTLY wait/countdown until we leave for our WEDDINGMOON!!! 14 days!!!!

You are crossing off quite a bit on that list, I'm so impressed! I hope I'm as organized as you when I'm down to 14 days before our wedding. You must be so excited!
