I love to do lists and feel a sense of acomplishment every time of things gets ticked off a list. So I am planning the wedding since now. Nothing bought yet, but I will start this month by ordering things that I already decided. Better too early than sorry.
So, without further ado, here are some of the things I have decided so far:
Date: 1st of february of 2014 (almost exactly 2 years from the day we got married in the courthouse).
Theme: travel/long distance relationship (we were long distance and LOVE to travel).
Bride and bridesmaids bouquets: felt and buttons from a seller on etsy.
Ushers gifts: cufflinks with flags from countries me and dear husband have been to, together or on our own.
Bridesmaids gifts: sterling silver bracelet with an airplane charm.
Number of ushers and bridesmaids: 3 of each (including Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor on that counting). We just need to decide on who the third usher will be, the others are already decided.
Cake toppers: from an amazing cake topper maker from Brazil, it will be like those, but the bride wearing the camera and the groom the map. also, the names of the cities will be customized with our choice and the groom and bride to look like us, of course:
Save the dates: from etsy, on postcard format.
Wedding invitations: from etsy, passports!
RSVP: together in packages with the passports, being boarding tickets.
Wedding cake: suitcases.
Color scheme: blue, white, brown and cream.
Send off items from the religious cerimony: paper airplanes.
Other items for church cerimony: hankies for tears of joy and programs.
Wedding dress: something with lace on the upper part. I am considering Justin Alexander 9552 or Justin Alexander 8512 but need to try them on before deciding anything further.
Guest list: being worked at.
Guest book: also found it on etsy.
Party favors: luggage tags with the same drawing of us from the save the date postcards on it.
Flowers for the church or wherever the wedding cerimony will be: white roses.
Ok, ok, I havent bought anything yet from the list, but will start this month already, as to slowly get those things out of the way. the cake toppers will only be ordered after I choose the dress, though. Any other suggestions as of what I should be checking now, that maybe isnt that expensive, so I could decide beforehand?
