If any of you have been or are currently married I'm sure you know how daunting wedding planning can actually be. I've decided to not opt for a coordinator b/c that equals to be more money paid out. This is going to be a very DIY wedding, and I'm actually excited. I've picked out a dress (although I need to try it on), assembled a bouquet, picked out invites and rings, and the bridesmaids have their dresses already. We're still debating on the exact venue location, but it will be on the Outer Banks here in NC most likely being at a rental property. Still undecided about a cake, but for the most part I have the major items done for. Let me know what you think of my picks!
Sand dollar favors (I'm going to add ribbon, and write our names/date on them too!
If you haven't noticed already my colors are pink and brown. As far as patterns I like the polka dots and lines so that's why I really like the invitations and the cakes above. The invitations were only $44 for 50 which isn't too shabby, but I haven't ruled out using the DIY invitations that you can find at craft stores. My dream would to get Illustrator working, and design my own for free. All I'd need is the stock paper which isn't expensive either. And now for a sneak peek of the dress I'm eyeing for...
