@veryvalentine I did. It's part of their gift and then I also bought them robes, earrings and I plan to buy them something else too..not sure what else yet, but the Kate Spade bangles were a top contender. haha.

 

My girls probably won't get a ton more use out of the dress after so I don't feel too terrible if it isn't the most amazing quality ever. I wouldn't expect them to want to wear a bright coral dress very often haha

Thank you!! 

 

I just read some of the lovely compliments and they totally cheered me up.

 

@wafflesmom  my burns are healing.  It's amazing the difference that 1 week can make.  The pain is basically gone.  Now I'm dealing with the actual injury itself but I've been really careful to keep it clean and with cream.  I'm frustrated because I still can't work out but hopefully in another week I can start up again.  Need to fit into my dress!

 

@ashhtayy   thank you so much for your lovely compliments.  I wasn't sure if I was going to do a planning thread but it helps me out immensely just to keep me on track and motivates me to continue to work through our projects.  My  next project is my flower crown :)

 

@maybeoneday   Sorry to hear about your mom's passing.  This process has been surreal without my mom around.  I knew this day would come and I knew it would be difficult.  I still haven't decided how I will honour her memory. 

 

xoxo


@perianjay

 

Agreed.  But I do think that some of my BMs will wear it again, especially if they go to a resort or are on vacation or maybe a summer wedding.  I love the convertible style dress.   The colour shows up kinda red in the picture but it is more of a coral in person.  I am also thinking of giving them their dresses as a gift but I'm still deciding because it's a bit out of my budget right now.  My intentions were to do it.

@veryvalentine Yea.. If I were to have gone with a more expensive dress.. it would've totally been out of my budget too. I wanted to be able to give them more than just a dress so that's why I went with the DaintYard dress.. I felt like it was the best bang for my buck and it will be a nice way to save a bit of money to put toward their gift.

 

I'm sure no matter what you decide it's going to look fantastic.. you have great taste :)

Table Numbering:

 

I am torn between two ideas one is slightly more fun than the other, mainly because it involves alcohol!

 

Idea number 1 @TinkerSofi  I'm laughing because I'm remembering your Martha stewart frustrations!!  These better be easy to use.

 

Message in a bottle table numbering - easy enough and looks pretty.

Idea number 2

 

Drinks will lead you to your seat.  I feel like this gets the party started just right!

In love with the message in a bottle escort "Cards". I think they are more unique and they are super cute!! I guess the only issue I can see with the drinks would be if a lot of them end up going to waste haha.. Everyone has different taste in drinks.

@perianjay

 

Very true, and then with the drinks I'm going to rely on having the resort put them on the cups and they'll probably charge $1000 per glass just to do this.  lol

I totally agree with @periandjay. I was actually going to do the message in a bottle, it's just super cute :). I feel like the drinks will be a lot more work and you can't plan for it ahead of time. This means the hotel might charge you for set up, and let's not forget the increased room for error because they don't know who is who so they can't catch anything that might not look right. With the bottles you can have them filled up already from home or do it one evening with your fiance sitting in your balcony having some drinks ;)

 

Another thing you could do with the bottles, depending how big of a paper they fit, use it as your guestbook too. So people get their table number, then write a message on the back and return it to you :D. It would be super fun. You could even make it more fun and have two or three different baskets/boxes which indicates what anniversary you guys will be opening the message on. Then people people choose when you'll read their message :). So you might have a basket for 1st year, another for 5th and say another one for 15th, or something like that. Total message in a bottle! Without it ever getting lost in the ocean :)

@TinkerSofi

 

Totally agree with you.  I think we will go with the message in a bottle.  The drinks seemed like soooo fun but they have to be done before hand and the people giving the drinks away are not going to know if someone grabbed the correct drink.  I could see it being a bit of a mess.  Message in a bottle we can prep before hand and I think it's just the best idea.  I was thinking of wirting a small little message to each our guests jus tsaying thank you again to them for coming etc etc or our fav memory of them.

Something sweet to set the mood.

 

:)

I think that's an excellent idea and your guests will totally appreciate the personalized messages and the fact that you took the time to think about a message for each one of them.
