    Here's what, after what I'm sure amounts to hundreds of hours on pinterest, I'm thinking for my accessories.  My dress has a lot of bling along the neckline, so probably no necklace.  Chandelier earrings and a simple rhinestone headband.  The latest thing I'm debating is including a hair vine in my hair as well, I have the beads that match the beading in my dress and I'm thinking I could make a vine that later could be worn as a necklace.   the big thing is that I want to feel light and luminous... radiant even.  I want people to think they should have worn sunglasses when they look at me.

    I've posted a couple of these before...

When I get them made, I'll post them on here for you all to see.

    essentially, everything about me is gonna sparkle... and that's just the way I like it.  I'm hoping that if I keep it pulled back a bit on each piece it won't be too overwhelming all together.. Posting all of this was pretty helpful actually, it's the first time I've seen it all laid out together.

      Those of you who brought your own real touch/ silk bouquets...how did you pack it, or where did you have it for the flight. I'm still stuck on that and have no idea how I'm gonna get it down there. Any suggestions ladies?!

      Wish I could tell you from experience, but I used real flowers. But if I had to transport silk bouquets, I would likely wrap them in tissue paper, and then tuck them into a box if possible so they don't get squished. Is it just your bouquet? or multiple bouqets? If it's just yours, put it in your carry on (a small roller suitcase perhaps-again so that it will keep it's shape).

      Good luck!

      sorry! I missed your earlier question. I did as Miriam suggested - put it in my carry on. It was surrounded by tissue paper and a little bubble wrap, and we also had our (fragile) wedding favors in that same roller bag. When we got into our room, it was one of the first things I pulled out and set it in the ice bucket. I packed it in my checked bags on the way home, still surrounded by tissue paper and bubble wrap. It made the trip just fine both ways!!

          I am going with Sarani.  She is a little bit more on the expensive side however she has been really responsive to any questions I have and was willing to work with me to make it affordable.

            Since we've all been discussing music lately, Amazon has 3 free albums up for valentine's day.   I've downloaded all 3 of them and there's some good stuff in here.

              That's awesome. Caribe has really done nothing for me. In fact I haven't even contacted them directly.

              I did ask for a mixed package and they were not willing to do anything special.

              I may need to look at changing if this is the case.

                Ok, I have Caribe booked for a 3 hour package and have them starting at the ceremony.

                Is that enough, too much, not enough.......I'm just not sure how long we should have them.

                  Will you want any "getting ready" pictures beforehand? Or a first look?
