  • Wedding: December 2010

@HoneyBear: We’re having a destination wedding in Savannah GA on December 1. Our venue is providig pretty much everything we need for just the two of us.

I did make my hair piece. It’s a comb with silk pink roses and ivory flowers, I also made a lace wrap to wear with my dress, and I’m thinking about making a cake topper, but I’m not sure we need one.

I basically just looked at the things I might want at the ceremony that the venue might not provide. Most of those things have been personal items.

I don’t know how much help this is to you, but we are planning a LOT of DIY for our Destination Wedding.  My Dad is making a “bar” for us, which collapses so it will fit in his jeep.  We will be driving down, and I am sure the car will be packed with all of out DIY stuff (centerpieces, favors, menus, programs, etc).  Also, a friend of mine just told me about http://www.wholeblossoms.com  She had the flowers delivered to her hotel room/bed and breakfast before the wedding and arranged all of her flowers the day before the wedding- she was very pleased with this website and said they were pretty cheap.  Can you drive to where you are getting married?  If not, maybe consider mailing some of your DIY stuff beforehand (cheaper than extra luggage on a plane!).

Are you already making welcome bags for TWO years fom now?? The reason I ask is because I am getting married in Costa Rica next summer and without knowing how many guests I’m having I am having a difficult time thinking of DIY projects that I can do now. 

Some of the things I’ve started working on are designing the fan programs (its an outdoor wedding), and the bride/groom signs which we’ll hang on our rooms before the ceremony and move to our chairs foor the reception.

  • Wedding: August 2010 - Ocean View Villas/Jasmine Seafood Restaurant

The easy to travel with DIYs are personal things like veil, hairflower, gifts for wedding party, guestbook, and paper products.  I made signs for the bridal suite, paper table numbers out of folded cardstock.

@HoneyBear:  We are getting married in Mexico and live in NJ.  I plan on doing A LOT of our details including the centerpieces..  so that includes all the glassware (plan on bringing on carry on) and everything else I will need for them.  I also plan on bringing tablecloths and sashes (the resort provides us with them but I’m not crazy about the teal they offer… and am a bit picky ;-)… I also plan on purchasing Real Touch Bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids – the resort provides again, but I will be using the flowers they provide to decorate the alter/gazebo 🙂
