I'm happy got hear about your Nan! :) those are great news :) 

 

I love the idea of having a "meet the guests" book. We didn't have one but most already knew each other, even if they had only seen each other once or twice :)

Thanks Ladies! Yikes...I guess I better get on top of the whole dress alts situation! Ok that's now on the list for this week!

 

I got the idea for my boutonnières at Ted Baker London... We went in there looking for a vest for my FI months ago and they had these fly boutonnières on some of the jackets. My FI thought it was awesome because he loves fishing and he asked if we could do that for the wedding. I started looking around on etsy for some. When I was home in July my friends dad had made her a pair of fly earrings so I asked home if he could make my boutonnières and he did! I think they are awesome :)

 

The message in a bottle was not that hard... Made 30 in about 15 mins :) I had my friend bring me back the sand from Punta Cana when she was there in April so it's the real deal :)

 

@@calgarybride2015 could you send me the template for the guests page?... Im having trouble putting mine together!

@@RivieraBride15 Thanks! I have made an apt with a seamstress for Sunday...fingers crossed it goes well :) She came Highly recommend from The Brides Project.

 
@@TinkerSofi Thanks! You are so lucky that everyone knew each other! All my friends and family know each other and same with the FI's but the two sides have never met together...we don't live close to any of our family or close friends  so we've never had an occasion / party / event to bring everyone together ...My parents met the FI's parents three times...maybe. So I'm hoping this will bring the two sides together a bit faster...since we only have a week together :)

Amazing news about your Nan!!!  So happy to hear! 

 

All your updates look amazing!  I was thinking about a Meet the Guestsbook too - will you update us on the response and if you think it's worth doing?

You're another bride that is so crafty! Wow! Everything is really great. Love the meet everyone idea. It makes it very personal for sure. And the message bottles - totally cute!!

@@RivieraBride15 my dress alteration meeting went well, waiting on your fitted dress pics :)

 

@@deecol thanks! So I took those pictures and I made an album on my secret Facebook page I made for my wedding...everyone Loved it!!!.. I wrote little things about them under the picture, so they could get to know each other a little bit. I'm also doing a small paper version for the welcome bag with just the names and a space to write the room number guest book phone book :)

 

@@acw271011 Thanks!!

 

So it's just 60 days til we leave for Punta Cana I've almost got all my physical To Do things done Yay... Just a few more little things to finish up :). Then I just have the email / appointment/ list kind of things left....

So good to hear!  My second fitting didn't go as well as I had hoped for so we didn't take pics this time.  My next one is October 7th.  Hope they get it right soon, I am under the 5 week mark now!!

Cute tags!!!! I actually did something similar too but I don't have those awesome welcome stamps. . those look so good!!

I used the same type of stamps for the names too and mine are extremely far from perfect haha.. there's even some where I accidentally stamped too hard and the outline made an ink impression. ahhh well.

@@RivieraBride15 Sorry to hear that!! I'm sure it will be all fixed on the next go round though

 

@ I got the Welcome stamp on the weekend at MIcheals. It was  group of Stamps that came in a Plastic mason jar with the Eifle Tower on the top....there were some fun stamps in there....wish I had found it earlier!! I've some of those "press too hard" things going on too! I just have the best ones in the picture hahahaha! I got the tags at staples. I wanna see yours, I'm sure they are fantastic and will blow mine out of the water....everything you make is awesome!
