Amarie4713 Now Jade Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

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. post-273400-14131692672_thumb.jpg

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. post-273400-141316936267_thumb.jpg


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:



Crystal light







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:


Puzzle books

Wet wipes


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...post-273400-141316966829_thumb.jpg


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. post-273400-141316983644_thumb.jpgpost-273400-141316984606_thumb.jpgpost-273400-141316985683_thumb.jpg


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!!

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!

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 :)

We don't need it. I just wanted everyone to be able to keep track of where everyone else was

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

    • 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?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
