Hello!! I'm getting down to the wire now with the wedding and I wanted to start a planning thread to help me keep my head straight! My wedding is on November 21, 2014.

First off, my fiancé and I have been together nearly 9 years and we have an 18 month old daughter. We met several years ago while we were both working at the same restaurant and I guess you could say the rest is history! Shortly after our daughter was born we decided to make it official and get married. A destination wedding just made sense because we wanted a small, intimate ceremony. We only invited close, mutual friends and immediate family.

We have 16 people attending the wedding.

My OOT bags were by far the most work for my wedding. Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1413169265.547544.jpg   330.26KB   13 downloads
We ordered these bags off of vistaprint with a coupon. They ended up just a little 3.00 a piece. I designed that myself so you won't find that particular logo on their website!

I made oh s$*t kits and survival kits for the bags. Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1413169362.581169.jpg   409.44KB   12 downloads

These are made out of cardstock labels I made at home and ziplock baggies.

Oh Sh*t Kits:
Lens Wipes
shout wipes
Nail polish remover wipes
Insect repellent wipes
Sewing kit
Bobby pins
Safety pins

Survival kits:
Aloe
Chapstick
Crystal light
Dramamine
Ibuprofen
Antacid
Anti-diarrheal
Kleenex

I also put a small first kit in the bags as well. I just put a custom label on it.

I also have the following to go in the bags:
Gum
Puzzle books
Wet wipes
Loofah
Playing cards

I made key card holders as well...

I made small pockets to go in the bags to keep all the paper stuff together...Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1413169668.530985.jpg   341.05KB   12 downloads

I ordered the pockets online. They're just an invitation pocket and then filled it with stuff I made. I either ordered all my items from vistaprint or printed them at home.

I added a photoshare card for an app were using called WedPics and a sticky note pad that I was able to get from vistaprint for free with another order.

I made small bouquets to go on the chairs as aisle markers that I'll be taking down with me as well.

And I'm taking chair sashes, table runners, and about 30 vases for the tables. I have paper lanterns to light and hang. We're doing our reception by the pool so I wanted the extra light.

The vases will fill with water beads and also be lit to help light the table!

I need to construct my programs still.

I will continue to add to this post as I get stuff done!!

@amarie4713

 

Wow - everything looks fantastic!  Did you design everything yourself?  It's all very professional - I would have guessed that you had paid someone a lot of money to do it!  Great job!


30 guests, Bride & Groom & 2 kids - one FANTASTIC time!

Thank you ladies! Yes @marinah84 I'm sure I saved a lot of money by doing it myself, but it was a lot of time!

I'm so picky about what the design that I wanted to do it all myself. Slightly controlling I guess :)

I used a publishing software on my MacBook. Studio publishing I think. Thank you so much. It's so great to get such positive feedback
