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:

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...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

    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka.
