I tried using some fishing lines to hold them in place but that turned into a disaster. That's why I was so curious as to how you did yours. I pretty much abandoned the idea, but now

When we did our resort visit in May, we took notes of what and where we needed to find some items that were cheap. The maraca's, Tequila for the the tequila table, and Cigars. The maraca's were only $1.50 per pair! Hacienda Tequila was the name of the store.
  3. Here is a pic of our Cake. I HEART the way it turned out! Our shoe valet. Front says "shoe valet" Back says "Got Sand" This is a picture of when I realized I forgot to put my garter on for the garter toss! LOL! My awesome BM & MOH's ran up to my room to get it for me. But, that was after I realized NO ONE HAD THE KEY TO OUR ROOM! I forgot to take it with me when I left! DH carrying me through the threshold

I've been wanting to do the flowers and crystals on our huppa too, but haven't had the time to start the project. Let me know if you're ever interested in selling yours! lol By the way, I couldn't really see clearly, but what did you have in your centrepiece? As our centerpiece I wanted to keep it as simple and CHEAP as can be. I used the same Orchid Flower Heads I used to make my MOH/BM/Bride Bouquet. I put 3 white orchids, 3 coral orchids, Sand, 2 fluorolytes and starfish submerg

Supplies: Fishing Line Crimp Beads Crimping Tool Crystals I guestimated the length of the fishing line by making it a little taller than my bedroom door. I then crimped a bead at my desired spot, added a crystal, and then another crimp bead, and crimped it right above the crystal. That way the bead will not move. I then spaced out on the fishing line approx. 10 inches and crimped another crimp bead, and repeated the proc

I was going to bring them with me, but, it just made it easier to rent.
  7. This is it for now. I'll have to update some of the other stuff at a later time. Thanks everyone for looking!
  8. THE RECEPTION STUFF: The Guest-Tree Sign in Table: I originally BORROWED my girlfriend's manzanita tree branch that she used for her wedding. I handcarried this bad boy, giving me scratches on my legs and arms... Come to the end, when we tried to go through customs when we arrived in mexico, after running it through the xray machine 4 times.. I couldn't bring it through. =( But, my GREAT MOH & BM went zip lining 2 days before our wedding, and smuggled into the resort 2 branches they took from the dessert! After all that, it was better than the manzanita tree branch only because i
  9. THE CEREMONY SET UP I purchased the Chair sashes from Weddinglinensdirect.com I loved working with them! I also purchased the Orchid strands from a fellow BDW member, and I made the "Bling" strands from Chrystals. Rev. Marco was awesome and had everyone crying!
  10. TO-GO CAKE BOXES & sign: "sweet dreams! Enjoy your midnight snack! on box sticker. My MOH's little sister designed the Sign: "Too full for cake? Take it for later! The guest loved it! I also handed out White Handled paper bags with a sticker that said "Thanks for Attending" no pic =( TEQUILA & CIGAR TABLE: The sign's were in the wrong place, but, it didn't matter... People got the jyst of it! The Snuggle up sign was supposed to be on the Pashmina table. But, who cares at this point!

  12. Where to begin! Before my now DH signed me on to this forum, I was such A Hopeless-Bridezilla who didn't know what to do with herself! I was seriously so manic because I didn't know where to begin! After 48hrs of nonstop being a BEST DESTINATION WEDDING FORUM STALKER I seriously had our wedding planned in 1 month. My hat certainly comes off to Tammy for starting up this forum for us Hopeless-Bridezilla's (in my situation) out there!! SO here it goes: THE ENGAGEMENT: It happened Christmas '08'. The best Xmas ever! Long story short, we were running late for church, and DH goes in
