    Wedding Date: 22 March 2011

    Wedding colours/theme: No theme, just lots of things that we love. Main colours are fuschia pink / bright green / tropical orange!





    Number of Guests: We currently have 24 booked and confirmed, but it may be up to 30.

    Ceremony Venue:  Chapel of the Flowers, in their Glass Garden. We also have the Victorian Chapel reserved in case of rain.







    Reception Venue: 
    Little Buddha in the Palms. We are having a 3 course meal with 2 hour open bar for $115/head including taxes and gratuity. They serve Pan Asian fusion food and sushi, garnished with orchids and it all looks so pretty!



    No. of Attendants: One MOH and one Best Man plus two groomsmen.

    Your Dress: I absolutely love my dress! It is not a wedding dress, but when I spotted it (before FI popped the question!) I knew it was The One. I also have my shoes and clutch:








    Groom/smen Outfit: FI tried on suits last weekend - here is what we have ordered! All the boys are wearing black shirts, black waitcoats and grey suits. FI has a fuschia pink tie and the others have bright orange ties.



    Bridesmaid Dress: It has been tricky to find something in the right colours, but I think we have settled on this Alfred Angelo number. It is a bit over budget, but needs must...



    Stationery: This was really important to me, as lots of people would be unable to attend and this would be their only memento. I sent out Save the Date cards:



    ...and the matching invitations were sent this weekend:



    Transport Vendor: We have rented the Big Blue Limo from NTS Services. It holds up to 45 and is absolutely amazing!

    Photographer: Todd from Bently & Wilson

    Make-Up/Hairdresser: I have booked the Glamsquad to work on me, my MOH and our friend who is doing a ceremony reading. I am having airbrush make-up, flase eyelashes and I am really undecided aout how to have my hair.

    Cake: Just about to confirm with Dawn at LV Cake Designs. This little beauty but in our colours - I was worried it would look garish but Dawn thinks it will look great. It feeds 50 and is costing $425 including speciality flavours and delivery:



    Flowers/Bouquet: The chapel is under very strict orders with these - I am worried, because a lot of the floral designs on their website look old-fashioned and a bit chintzy. I am having a 24-rose bouquet with no greenery and hand-wrapped stems. My bridesmaid is having the same, but in cream:



    All the boys are having cream rose buttonholes and the mothers are having cream pin-on corsages.

    Ceremony Music: Entering to At Last by Etta James. Walking out to You've Got the Love by Candi Staton.

    Favours: Pink and orange fortune cookies from www.fancyfortunecookies.com :



    Pre-Wedding Event plans, including Bachelorette Party / showers: It is all being held in Vegas - we have a Welcome Dinner at Yolos on day 1, day 2 we have our seperate Bachelor/ette Nights and day 3 is the wedding. FI is under strict no-hangover instructions!

    Vegas Accommodation: We are staying at the Encore for 5 nights in a resort suite room.



    Honeymoon: After our wedding, we are doing a roadtrip to L.A with our parents and siblings (my family lives in Australia, FI's in the UK so it will be good to spend some time together). Then we are flying to Cancun for 8 nights of luxury at Secrets Silversands - I cannot wait for this!



    Post a pic of you and FI...! This is my current Facebook profile pic, taken in Portugal last month:

    (not uploading, will be back when it works!)

     Maggianos



    No. of Attendants: None

    Your Dress:  I am so in love with both my dress and shoes. I knew since the day me and my FI started planning our wedding that I would have no other color wedding shoes but red, and that's exactly what I got. My dress, my dress, my dress, I was about to purchase another gown prior to purchasing this gown but for some reason I couldn't go without checking out this boutique near my house, and when I got there, this dress was the first and last dress I tried on.






    Groom/smen Outfit: The groom will wear a suit like this but with a white suit jacket instead of black.

    Ceremony Music: I will walk down to Jennifer Hudson - "Giving Myself"

    Favours: Haven't given this any thought, don't know if we'll have any favours.

    Pre-Wedding Event plans, including Bachelorette Party / showers: None

    Vegas Accommodation: We'll be staying at The Vdara for 5 nights.




    Honeymoon: We're calling our trip to Vegas our "Wedding moon" because this is where we'll be getting married and beginning our honeymoon. We'll end our honeymoon in Pocono Palace Resort, in Pennsylvania (in Agust 2011).

    @ Wiwi - Great photos, thanks for sharing! The Salon Suite is in the Wynn, isn't it... are you using the in-house catering?

    @ Formerlymeowmeow - 'I hate cake'.... Surprised

    @ kteel717 - I really want to have my Bachelorette Party at XS... do you have information on their bottle service prices? How are you organising it?

    @ sdb0611 - I love your shoes, they are fabulous!

    Gribbles- my sister (MOH) will be organizing the details when it gets closer so I am not sure of bottle pricing, but usually its $200+ per bottle and you need a couple of them if you want VIP and have more then 4 people.

    My FI was just there for his best friends bachelor party and they all highly recommended it. Said it was the most fun/coolest nightclub scene they have been to in a long time and the staff was very nice!
     
    Tryst also looks super cool. So many things to see/do- so little time!

    Wedding Date:  
    August 6, 2001

    Wedding colours/theme
    Colors: Blue and Pink

    Travel themed (we like to travel as do many of our friends so instead of doing a Vegas theme, we thought we'd bring in the fact that Vegas has the four corners of the world all in one spot! LOL)

    Number of Guests:
    50-60 (guest list still being complied)

    Ceremony Venue:
    Wynn Lilac Salon -- unless we go over 50 guests, then I guess I'll have to upgrade :-/

    Reception Venue:
    Maggiano's Calabria Rm

    No. of Attendants:
     6 girls, 6 guys (that is mostly my FI's doing...he has a big family and lots of good friends -- he wanted more, but I had to put the brakes on that! If it were up to me, it'd be 2 girls, 2 guys)

    Your Dress:

    Just ordered it last week, so no pics of me in it, yet

    Groom/smen Outfit:
    Brown or tan tux or suit...he hasn't decided if he wants to rent one or bring his own. But I love him in tan/brown suits and I specifically requested it Wink

    Bridesmaid Dress:
    Still trying to decide on that one

    Stationery:
    I'm doing passport invitations for my guests. I thought it fit well with the travel theme and also, I figure with a more traditional invite, I'd have had to include lots of inserts anyway. Right now, I'm going with 4 page passports from The Stylish Scribe at a pretty good price. The photo below is from her website...it's not of me and FI, but it's the one that really sold me on the passport invite idea. Sorry I can't make it bigger :-/


    Transport Vendor:
    My mom and dad's cadillac truck LOL! They live out in Vegas now, so we'll just be using their car to drive us around. That and/or various cabs as and if we need them. 

    Photographer:
    *sigh* Cashman (that's an appropriate name for the company isn't it?)

    Make-Up/Hairdresser:
    Still working on that one


    Cake:
    We're just going with the desert options at Maggiano's. We're both massive chocoholics anyway and that scrumptious chocolate cake on their menu is pretty close to what we would have had made anyway. I hope it is as good as it looks in the photos!


    Flowers/Bouquet:
    Whatever Wynn gives me LOL! I think I've got 12 roses for the bridal bouquet. Not sure of the color. Was thinking of requesting pink for a bit of color, but at the end of the day, I don't much care. If it weren't included and if it wouldn't look weird if I didn't have one, I probably wouldn't have a bouquet! I'm also not adding any additional flowers to the chapel. Too expensive, and I hear it's nice enough as it is. 

    Ceremony Music:
     "So Amazing" by Luther Vandross. I love this song and the message has a special meaning to us as I moved to the UK to be with him :-) Not sure if I want to walk down the aisle to it or if it should be the first dance song though... HELP???!!!!

    Favours:
    I was thinking personalised luggage tags if we do favors. I can't afford the nice silver plated ones though, so I'm torn between not giving any at all or doing something like this:


    Only instead of our names, we'd put something like "Bon Voyage" so people will actually USE them! LOL

    Pre-Wedding Event plans, including Bachelorette Party / showers:
    Not sure what we're doing before. But the day after the wedding, we're doing a BBQ at my parents' house (well, at the clubhouse in their community).


    Vegas Accommodation:
    Working on it. My folks are taking care of that (thank goodness!)

    Honeymoon:
    On our 1 yr anniversary, we're going to spend a week in southern Italy (Amalfi, Capri, Pompeii). I love it there, and it's where he proposed  :-)

    This was a super fun poll...makes me wanna actually post a proper bio now...

    Pic of me and my Huney!

    Why so fuzzy? What gives? Oh well...  :-)

    Bridesmaid Dress: Jim Hjelm but in their platinum color (grey):




    Stationery:  Not sure yet, my mom and I will be doing all things paper, she used to sell invites etc. on Ebay.  For STD these are the two styles I'm thinking we'll try to copy:




    Transport Vendor:  Haven't decided on who yet, but we will have it.

    Photographer:  We booked Todd a few wks ago!

    Make-Up/Hairdresser:  2 of my BMs are hair stylists so they'll be doing hair.  Will prob. hire someone for makeup.  Hair I'll be doing, but not the flowers, prob. a vintage clip:





    Cake:  I'm doing a surprise Cake Boss type cake for FI including his favorite things, our dog, MN Twins, sports betting/horse racing from Gimme Some Sugar, inspiration pic:



    I then came across this cake, fell in love with it, so I may have GSS do a cakelet of it in grey and pink/rfuschia/black (oh and Previous Poster - I think you got this from me:)



    Flowers/Bouquet: My boquet will be just like this, BMs will be similar but smaller, we will be using The Pallette:



    Ceremony Music: I'll be walking down to Lost in this Moment by Big & Rich.  Unity candle will be to Oh by Dave Matthews and when everyone walks out it will be to Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band (we're huge DMB fans if you couldn't tell!)

    Favours:  We'll be doing a small welcome bag w/3 favors, giant oatmeal and chocolate cookies from Great Harvest Bread Company, Knot caramel and chocolate pretzels with tags that say "Jared and Sara tied the knot" and a CD:



    Pre-Wedding Event plans, including Bachelorette Party / showers:  Will probably do a Meet & Greet, thinking Margaritaville maybe.

    Vegas Accommodation:  Mandalay Bay (Vista Thurs. & Fri., regular room other 2 nights)

    Honeymoon:  Hawaii!  I'm determined at least.

    @ JB: Thanks so much! I'm soooooper excited about it! :-) I initially wanted something less formal, but I just couldn't keep my eyes off it. 

    @ Gribbles: check out this link: 

    Not a bad price either! Let me know if you use them, how they turn out. I'm not sure if I want to use them or not. It would tie in nice with my theme, but I don't want to buy them if no one's going to use them...I've got time to decide though. :-)

    :-)
