We got sooo much stuff! We were registered on honeyfund and got a lot of money to put towards our honeymoon. We also were registered at crate and barrel and got a tonnn of stuff. I also got some cute nighties ;-)
All in all, my bm's outdid themselves and made my weekend very special

Pearl earrings and necklace, much smaller pearls than the BMs though

going to fill them with stuff, just not sure what yet lol
Ogio gym bag with their names on it (black w/ initials on front)
Engraved glass top humidors with names engraved
Cigars for inside
We finally decided on a cake. Our venue told us the cake was included in our price, so when they sent us to the bakery we of course were not told that cakes with fondant were an extra $325. At first I was pissed because I felt we were mislead, but was willing to pay the extra to have what I want. After re-doing out budget, we both realized (more him than I lol) that it's not worth it, especially with the lavish viennese display... make your own ice cream sundaes, fondue, pastries, cheesecakes, pies, etc. I can't even get over how much food and dessert there will be!
Anyway this is what we decided on, without the top because we have a cake topper. We got the topper with the bride pinching the grooms butt, since we are both very flirty with each other:)
First fitting :)
So I absolutely fell in love with my dress again after my fitting. I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't like it anymore, after losing a little weight and not seeing the dress for 9 months... but here are the pics. :)
Going to attempt our card box soon. I bought the boxes and fabric, just need to see the best way to attach the fabric to the boxes! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I am going to try to copy this as best I can except I bought round boxes.
Favor Boxes/ we bought out candy!!
So we decided on doing the chinese take out containers and got the demask packing tape and a little sticker with our name on it. I forget the bride I got the idea, so I'm sorry for borrowing your idea and not crediting you for it if you see this :) The sticker also says "Love is Sweet" you just can't see it. The sticker is a little small, but I'm going to move it up a little so it will look better. We got pint containers and when I look at them I hope they're not too small, but then again I also don't want there to not be enough candy for everyone. FH suggested making extra boxes so if people want more they can take two containers. I was thinking of getting extra bags or something. Any ideas ladies?
We also bought all of our candy for the buffet. I hope it doesn't melt before the wedding. I have to find a cool place to store it! We're doing black white and a touch of red. I hope we have enough candy for 130-150 ppl. Once we open the bags of candy and arrange them in the jars we got, I will probably get a better idea on if I need to buy more- what do you think? We have almost 100 lbs of candy. Here's what we got- let me know what you guys think!
2lbs white M&Ms, 2 lbs black M&Ms
4 lbs Black and White Gummy Penguins (cherry flavored)
4.5 lbs Red and White Gummy Rings
5 lb Black and White striped Hard candy rods- black cherry flavored
10 lb Swedish Fish minis! (YUMM!!)
5 lb Red and black Raspberry gummies
15 lbs of yogurt covered mini pretzels
6.5 lbs nonpareils
5 lbs French Vanilla Jelly Bellys
5 lbs Black and White Cordials (mix of Chocolate Chocolate cordials and French Vanilla cordials)
5 llb Cookies and Cream covered Malt balls
10 lb Strawberry Twizzlers
