I second @perianjay, the proposal boxes are very cute. I feel like the most unromantic person ever, I basically just asked my MOH's to be there and they said yes haha. I kind of wish I had done something sweet like you :)

@Ashhtayy I love the "proposal" boxes to your wedding party! Those are so adorable. I had originally wanted to do that for mine but I just mailed them cards since we dont see each other very often. I'm sure your wedding party loved them! WIll you FI do anything special for his groomsmen too? I had to force my FI into handing out cute cards that had a bowtie on them that said "your service as a groomsman is required" (or something along those lines). Can't wait to hear more!

Agreed, me too!  I didn't realize people did this until I found this board.

I have only been to 2 weddings, one was when I was a teenager.  The second I was a BM and she only just asked me personally too.    HAHAH  like I said in my planning thread, if it wasn't for this board my wedding would have been 'special'

@ashhtayy The choices for the welcome cocktail at the sky deck should be on the first email you got. There's one document explaining all the perks at the sky deck, and the options are right there :)

 

I chose my hair appointment about 3 months out. I also asked and you can change things around once you get there. I budgeted for extra time for my hair because hairdressers never take into account the amount and length of my hair, and then complain that it takes them so long and they're late. I'll see how the trial goes, and if less time is needed, I can just change it up before the wedding. So definitely don't stress about that right now. In a few months, I'd pick the day of your trial and then a tentative time for your wedding day hair and makeup. They told me to budget 2 hours for both of them on the day of, so I budgeted anywhere from 2.5-3. It's always better to have extra time rather than to run around trying to play catch up. 

 

@TinkerSofi yes, i missed it. what did you pick? if i didn't have to consider mike's choice i would be going with the bellini or sangria lol he is on a work trip but gets back friday - i will run it by him :)

 

smart call extending your hair appointment! you are FULL of great tips. thank you!


Thanks for the tip! I will probably order 5 sets :)

 

@perianjay here are some details:

  • Cost - $13USD each (rather than $14.75USD)
  • Shipping - $27USD
  • Ordered - 5 on 03/26/2015 & a 6th on 03/29/2015
  • Shipped - 04/06/2015
  • Delivered - 04/14/2015

I'm either super impatient or the date of delivery is incorrect. It felt as if they took 3 weeks to arrive but etsy says i got them 8 days later. either way, they arrived, they're adorable and all the girls loved them :)


@TinkerSofi it was REALLY hard to wait until i finished the boxes to ask my girls. some of them told me afterwards they were like 'what the f, why isn't she asking us?' lol so, it actually may have been more kind to ask everyone right away. we were engaged in October and i didn't ask anyone until the end of April and early May. i knew who i was asking the entire time, i just wanted the proposal to be perfect haha

@yycbride2016 thank you! i saw your cards and they were great. i'm sure your girls and your FIs guys loved them!

 

Mike was thinking of using fiverr to propose. for those of you unaware of fiverr...check it out. basically you can pay strangers $5 to do just about anything - edit your essay, create a video for you, etc. anyways, we found this guy that makes these super offside and hilarious videos and he will say whatever you want. we thought that would be a funny way for him to propose because we thought he wouldn't be able to see his groomsmen in person for awhile. all that changed because we are going to be there for 10 days in august. still looking for an idea or a gift for them!

We had picked the mojito at first I think but then someone said it was disgusting so we switched it to sangria. Hopefully that's good!

Bellini is probably really good too!
