I cut apart the leis and used them for both my hanging flower garlands and also the flowers floating in the water in the vases. I hope that helps! Best of luck

Definitely steal the idea for the tag holders, but just remember, only the guests who book suites will get key cards, the rest get actual keys. Everyone gets towel cards though, so it is useful regardless. We gave the DJ CDs. I was not going to count on him having an iPod doc or cable to hook it into his system. He had

Congratulations! Great choice changing to the ROR! The DJ was only at the poolside dancing reception. The cost was $300 for two hours. We had actually brought some CD's to play at dinner, thinking that I could just b

With the spanx - it really depends on what you want I guess. I wore them during my dress fitting a
  5. Thank you! Enjoy your wedding and congratulations to you! The flowers on the table were real flower petals that Tai Flora substituted for my bouquet in the free package. The flowers in the vases were artificial orchids. They were the same ones I used for the hanging flower garlands actually. I bought them from Save on Crafts, Wedding Supplies, Flowers, Tulle, Lights, Decorations & Discount Craft Supplies Save-on-crafts. I actually bought dendrobium orchid leis and cut them apart. It was very easy and cheap ) I hope that helps. Feel free to let me know if you have any other ques

  7. Hi everyone! I know I am still a newbie, but other reviews really helped me in my planning, so I am hoping this helps someone. Please feel free to PM me or post specific questions. Just some background about my wedding: We arrived at the RIU on July 16 and were married on July 20. We had 26 guests arriving between July 16-18, and most people stayed until July 21. On July 21 my husband and I moved to Sandals Dunn’s River Villagio (which happens to be directly next to the RIU) for our honeymoon and we left there on July 28. US AIRWAYS/ALPHA WORLD TRAVEL The trip was very smooth ove

I really want everyone to feel special when they arrive, so we are going to do our best to greet everyone personally when they arrive and give them their bag. Hopefully this will work out.

I'm having a tough time trying to find those and Purell hand sanitizer for reasonable prices. Hi! I found both the Advil and Pepto packs by searching around on Amazon. The seller I used was: Shore Wholesalers. Lots of other places had individual packs, but to save on shipping charges, I used the same seller for both packs. I found the Shout wipes at drugstore.com Online Pharmacy - Prescription Drugs, Health and Beauty, plus more. They had free shipping on

I've had a lot of questions about the "Magic Magnets." They are simply Heavey Duty round magnets that I bought in a pack at Michaels.

  14. Hi! I have some items I need to sell! Please note, the floating candles unfortunately do NOT fit in the vases I am selling ( Hence, why I can't use them. But maybe someone needs one and not the other, or has a special talent for trimming the edges off of candles! Anyway, here are the items: 1) 6 cylinder glass vases. Each stands 9" tall with a 3-1/2" diameter (opening). Asking $20 for all 6. 2) 12 floating candles (color ivory) to sell. These are brand new, in the plastic wrap. 3" diameter candles. Unscented. Measures 1-3/4" tall. Burntime: 4-6 hours. Asking $15 for all 12.
