  • Wedding: March 2011

Hi everyone,

My name is Saokrazie…..Mr.Cee and I will be getting married on March 18,2011 in Las Vegas (were from NYC) with nine or maybe ten of our closest friends. We will spend a week there and then head to Tahiti. Because we are having a destination wedding we are doing an engagement party with thirty of our friends and family…..

I HAVE A BLOG AND I HAVE INCLUDED A SNIPPET IF ANYONE WANTS TO READ MORE U CAN MESSAGE ME.

By The Way I TRIED MICROBRAIDS AND I DONT LIKE IT, I THINK I WILL GET A LONG WEAVE.

So today me and Mr. Cee decided since we are having a destination wedding that we will have an all in one party….slightly unconventional (I KNOW) before the wedding. Meaning we have bridal shower, reception and engagement party all in one. For those that will not attend our nuptials in Las Vegas. We also  had a to count our peoples that will feel can and can’t attend. I am not for the drama before I let someone fuck up my party….I will not invite them….but Mr.Cee is cut from another piece of fabric…before he make a enemy out of his self….he will invite his whole family.Which in a matter of opinion is not exactly cool.His family scrap like a old Jerry Springer episode….and its embarrassing. So I decided to break our 25 into 12 plus and agreeable middle.

So I wonder how our 25 turn in 30, being mindful it will be in our house. We going rent tables, chairs with coordinating colors sashes(our colors-navy).and have a chef come and cook a buffet style dinner. We also will  have a candy buffet done by Couture Candy Buffet..We will have all of the amenities in our large ass apartment. My family will be coming up from Baltimore and his from New York.  We ordered our party invites from Vista print and it had a Vegas theme…they should be here in 21 days(approx). They was a little more expensive then Wedding Paper Divas,where we purchased our actual wedding invites from.

I also want to have a singer come in an sing songs to him it will be a little surprise. I am looking for favors online because I want everyone to leave with something special to make them remember that day….any suggestion?

@trugem: Well the time you spent on the shoes really paid off because they look great. I remember seeing your invites on another post and they look really great as well. I too saw how much the boxed invitations were and decided just to make my own. I really wanted the silk invitation boxes but couldn’t wrap my head around paying $60+ per invite and that wasnt including shipping. I have no idea how much its going to be for the invites I made. I’m pretty sure I’ll have a postage fee vent around the first of Feb 11. lol

@Cheeks11:Thanks! LOL postage is is going up after the new year. I would stock up on those forever stamps if I were you. I have expensive taste and I found someone local to make the invites to fit into my budget. It is still expensive, but not as bad as it would’ve been if I would’ve ordered them in Houston.

@trugem:I guess I need to wrap a box and take it to the post office to see exactly how much it will be and if I can get stamps in advance. They’re not real heavy but I’m sure they’re going to take more than a few stamps especially since they’re not letter sized. Uggh!

@Miss Tattoo: I was under the impression that the Forever Stamps would always stay the same the price. I know a couple of people that stock up on them just because they knew the post office would raise them again in a year or two.

@Miss Tattoo: I know! It seems like things have gone up alot in the past few years. I remember when gas was less than a $1.50! That was just about 6 years ago!

Hey y’all! 🙂

I’m Mrs. Oyster and I got married July 9th.

We had a lovely wedding here in Dallas. My only made-from-scratch projects were my hair flower, my ring pillow, and I designed my own dress.

Thanks for revitalizing this! For some inspiration check out the real weddings of color thread also!

Sounds like you guys are having some beautiful weddings coming up! Can’t wait to see your ideas & projects!

@crebre: Eeee I can’t believe it’s just one month left for you! It’s comin’ up soon, girl! 🙂
