  1. I agree - it all depends on the photographer's prices and the quality you want...
  2. I love bubbles! Can't go wrong! Think only the guests on the ends of the aisle would blow them or throw the rice, confetti, etc? Or does everyone do it?

    Hey there!

    Congrats and good luck with your planning! A note on why we picked our island - Jamaica is the easiest and closest cheap flight/destination to the east coast - wanted to make it as easy for our guests as possible!

    new bride here!

    Welcome! You're right, these girls have some great ideas and help! I wish I would've found it sooner and had more time - good luck with all your planning!
  6. I was thinking about that too - having somewhat of a supply of meds in our room and letting the guests know, so we didn't have to spend as much on the individual packs... but this is a great idea! Thanks!
  7. Shoot! I didn't even pay attention to the size of the decks of cards when I placed the Oriental Trading order! I just thought the flip flop shaped cards were too cute! Now that I went back and checked: "Flip Flop-Shaped Playing Cards. Great for travel! Your family will pass many fun-filled summer days playing games with these colorful playing cards. Each 2 3/8" deck comes in a plastic container. (54 cards per deck)"... they are tiny! Oh well, it's too late now... but I should mention that I saw packs of 2 decks of regular size playing cards at the Dollar Tree too... so they'd be 50 cents each, and that would have been my backup plan (because at first I couldn't find the flip flop cards on Oriental Trading). Anyway, my OTC order should be in soon - hopefully they'll get used at some point!
  8. I wish I would've thought of doing something like this! I ordered generic flip flop tote bags from Oriental Trading... you DIY girls are so creative!
  9. We registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohl's... I was surprised at how frustrating it was too - we've lived together for 3 years, and really we just want cash towards new furniture and carpet... we've got the new little stuff, but all the expensive items are hand-me-downs! Any suggestions on how to 'register' for furniture?! We don't want them to think we want any one person to buy a couch or something, but more like a 'hint' that we are saving up for that stuff, know what I mean?
  10. I keep hearing about Hobby Lobby- I really wish we had one in Delaware! We're stuck with just Michael's and AC Moore...
  11. At our Dollar Tree, they were in the aisle with all the makeup and cotton balls, etc, and were in the 2 packs for $1 each... works out to 50 cents per lip balm, and I couldn't ask for a better price than that! Hope that helps! They were different than the lip balm available at dollartreedirect.com, so I guess they're in-store only? Let me know if you can't find them, and I'll get the brand name from home tonight! Actually, now that I'm thinking of it, I'm pretty sure they're made by Chap-Ex, and the packaging was blue with maybe a beachy pic?... the flavors were written on the top left and right corners by the hanger cutout...
  12. I was inspired by these last week, and went to our Dollar Tree over the weekend... they had 2 packs of lip balm (some with red or orange lids, some just white) with SPF 15 and in tropical flavors! There's a Key West Lime, Caribbean Coconut, Bahamian Berry, and another one I can't remember at the moment... but you can't beat that - I may not even get to the labels now, I'm happy I found the fun flavors and they have the SPF! Just wanted to share!
  13. Very cute! One of my bridesmaids brought up a similar idea for our "meet-n-greet" that we're having here before everyone leaves... we've had a lot of people saying "Who's all going to Jamaica?"... so we decided to pick a Saturday night and have everyone get together at a local restaurant/bar... this will give me a much better chance of actually pulling something off! Thanks!
  14. Brides Against Breast Cancer and the Making Memories Foundation are a really great cause! I was able to buy my dress from their Drexel Hill sale last October too! It's currently at David's for $499, and I bought it for $299, so I saved $ and helped a good cause! Can't beat that! I was torn between 2 dresses at David's too, so this made my decision easier as well! The dress doesn't even look like it has been worn, and it has a one-button bustle that I'll be changing to a french (?) under-bustle! I love it!
