Ok ladies, here it all is as promised!! Jill's (Jak27) Wedding Stuff!

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies, I promised I would get all of this posted before I leave. I have done such a good job pre-packing, using the packing guidelines on this forum, etc that Iâ€m ahead of schedule! HOORAY! So here goes, hereâ€s all of our wedding stuff that I have at the moment. Obviously, Iâ€ll share all of the pictures I can when we get back!

 

Wedding Location: Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos

Events:

Before guests arrive, Family Dinner: Edithâ€s

First group event: Tequila Tasting & Taco Bar at the Imperial Suite

Rehearsal Dinner: Mi Casa downtown CSL

Ceremony, Cocktails, Reception & Dancing

Coolers for the OOT bags (love them!)

Goodies for the OOT bags: pash, mints, Purell, Crystal Light, First Aid Kit, Chaser packet (ha!), aloe, koozies, Herban Essentials hand wipes, Miss Manicure emery boards, Pepto, Advil, Immodium, sudoku books from OTC. We'll also add bottled water, some snacks, mini tequila and margaritas once we get to Cabo.

Custom Maps by Couture Maps. I totally love the way they came out. The map is pink the other side is lime green. Theyâ€re more keepsake maps rather than for directions, but I still think theyâ€re adorable!

Special bags for our close friends (weâ€re not having a wedding party, but are still treating them as if we were): will be stuffed with good tequila for the guys, gossip magazines, shot glass, maybe a cigar, and a note from FI & I. Big bag for the girls, smaller bag for the guys.

Our stationary from iomoi.com which I love, for thank-yous. We mixed four patterns so it wasnâ€t all the same, and didnâ€t include last names so I could use for gifts we have already received.

Rehearsal Dinner Invitation at Mi Casa

Wedding gown. Terrible pictures, I donâ€t think I look that fat in real life! :) My veil is floor-length, diamond white with the edge seared (so it has that little edge on it).

Wedding Shoes

Wedding Bands. FIâ€s is palladium and brushed on the main part w/ a polished beveled edge. Mine matches my engagement ring, but is one row of pave using the same size melee.

Hair. My stylist at home helped me come up with a simple style that can be recreated and will look nice with the veil all night. Iâ€m keeping that veil on all night, it makes me feel like a bride!

Bouquet. Without the shells & starfish, Iâ€m not a shell-type gal. But I will have The Starfish from BDW in it. Yay!

Color Scheme for reception. Alternating tables of turquoise and lime green, both round and rectangular tables, low rounds and tall (bar height) rectangular. Pewter charges and napkin rings. Opposite glassware.

On the low, round tables, these hanging lanterns will be the centerpieces with some white flowers.

Lounge decor for ballroom/dancing/lounge. Highback couches placed around the walls of the room, matching & similar pie shaped pieces and couches. Light up coffee tables, white throw pillows with blue & green fabric, and uplighting.

Sorry I donâ€t have any pictures of the ceremony setup, but itâ€ll be like this: dark wooden benches and a coconut colored aisle runner. Shephardâ€s hooks with globes lining the aisle with turquoise and lime ribbon hanging down. Chocolate brown chuppah with white fabric. Very simple since itâ€s so quick!

 

Wedding favors: custom cookies from Cutie Pie Cookie with a picture of the bride & groom pinatas used at a shower thrown for us, with “Happily Ever After†in Spanish.

I donâ€t have a picture of the guest book, since I already took it to Cabo, but itâ€s a coffee table book that our guests will sign in.

 

Ok, I should stop now, but itâ€s all just so fun. Thank you all for your inspiration, help, words of wisdom, etc. Without BDW there is no way my wedding would be as planned and cohesive as it is. I got so many ideas from this forum that I had to stop reading sometimes, b/c I would want to do it all!
