Craft Day - Ribbon Wands, Welcome Bags, Bridesmaids Gifts

We had a craft day at my parent's house today.

Finished printing the welcome letters.
Made as many gift bags as possible (ran out of water bottle labels and maps).
Worked on ribbon wands (ran out of a few supplies).
Packed our ceremony & reception totes as much as we could.
Made gift bags for the bridesmaids.

Floor covered in ribbon wand supplies -


Each wand has a bell or a few bells on them...I think it will make a nice sound affect when everyone is waving them over us.


Our cute Mickey soaps that we included in the welcome bags -


Welcome bags done -


Other items in the bags...
  • Welcome letter I posted earlier.
  • Park maps.
  • Overall map of Disney property.
  • Water bottles.
  • Candy.
  • Door hanger.


I also finished the bridesmaids' gift bags...


Items...
  • Minnie ears.
  • Thank you card.
  • Necklace I posted earlier.
  • Mickey hair clips (orange and green)


Worked out my 4 somethings....
  • Something blue - Georgia Southern garter
  • Something new - my shoes
  • Something old - My grandmother's brooch (I'll attach it to my bouquet)
  • Something borrowed - Pearls from my step-mom

Funny thing about my something borrowed...when I got the pearls today, my step-mom told me she bought them to give to me on my wedding day while I was in college and dating another guy...she saw it possibly going towards marriage until we all realized what a jerk he was and she was thankful to have held on to the pearls! She tried to give them to me today, but I told her that I couldn't use it as my 'something borrowed' if she did that...so she's going to hold on to them until Christmas and then she'll officially give them to me.

_____________________________

I received an email from our DJ this week...we have Scott Messina. I have heard of anyone else having him....but we were really impressed with his website and requested him at our last visit.

_____________________________
My dad and I decided on our father daughter dance. I Loved Her First by Heartland.
_____________________________

To do...
  • Touch base with the outside vendors to go over details, confirm times, etc.
  • Write my wedding day letter to Thomas.
  • Finish the ribbon wands and welcome bags.
  • Finish worksheet for the DJ.
  • Get in touch with my aunt to ask her about blessing the meal at the reception.
  • Thomas needs to order the groomsmen gifts (has them picked out...just needs to get them).

I think that's all I got for now!

Fun fun fun! I love crafting! I'm so eager to get started on all my DIY projects! Yours look awesome!
For the water bottles - did you use generic water and put a new label on? Did you print your own labels?

I got Walmart brand water bottles - the labels covered up the other label perfectly.

I printed the water bottle labels myself...just a tip, labels were very hard for me to find! I hunted all our local craft and office stores with no luck...I ended up just getting full-page labels and cut them myself...then the next week I found a bunch of water bottle labels at Michaels.

I only designed the candy label...all others came from Something Printable by Victoria Ann - http://www.etsy.com/shop/SomethingPr...ef=seller_info
I love her work!

Here's the designs she did for me...
Bag label -


Door hanger -




Bottle label -

I just realized I never responded to your question about the soaps...my step-mom bought them off eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/25-Mickey-Mo...item35a77cb295

One Month Away!!!



We are one month away and got a new planner as of yesterday!! Our previous planner got a new position so we are now assigned to Amy Riendeau. I'm actually looking forward to it! I've heard great things about her already!

A few little updates...

I was able to get in touch with our photographer (Randy) and florist (Jonathan) today to touch base on timelines and such. The only thing I need to iron out is getting my floral to Boardwalk so they are there for getting ready pictures with Randy.

Randy is all set with everything...definitely put me a bit at ease about wedding day.

Stressing a bit because I've messaged our singer about getting her music to me by today...still no response. I sent a new message just a moment ago. Got a message back within a minute...she just forgot to respond last week and is looking it up now.

All the tux rentals except for Thomas' uncle (best man) have been paid...the due date for that is....TODAY. So I'm really hoping Thomas remembered to remind him again.

Thomas is actually out to sea this week...his last underway before he gets shore duty...no more deployments!!!

I got the groomsmen's gifts ordered as well...all of them coming from Thomas' favorite website... www.thinkgeek.com I think all the guys will really like what he chose for them!

I still need to fill out the worksheet for the DJ...I'm just not sure what to put on my top 10 songs to play / do not play.

Hello! You are so close to being married! How exciting. Thank you for commenting on my PJ. I plan to start a TR very soon. If I can give you any advice for your big day, it's don't worry about it.....Disney will blow you away. I am still having trouble believing that we got married there. It will be one of the most amazing days of your life. I promise. Cannot wait to read all about it.

Thank you! The dipping picture is my favorite I have of us. We couldn't figure out how to do the fall leaves down the aisle at a decent cost...so instead we're having flowers tied to every other pew and frames on the other pews. More info in this post - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=124

It's still hard for me to believe we're getting married there too!! I can't believe we're in the single digits!!
