  1. Is there any way I can report a member for sending me spam?  They have done it directly to my bestdestinationwedding PM inbox...  The member name is remis300. Obviously I will not reply to the email - but I did want to bring it to someone's attention to protect other members  .......................................  Hello. My Name is Remis I was impressed when i saw your profile at (www.bestdestinationwedding.com) and i will like you to email me back to my inbox so that i can send you my picture for you to know who i am. I belive we can establishe a long lasting rela
  2. Hi Ladies I need to borrow your creative genius! Can anyone think of a cute saying to put in the playing cards in the OOT bag?? allong the lines of "to have and to hold, and keep your beer cold" ?? any ideas?
  3. woooooooohooooooooo! I got the dress and I am OVER THE MOON! Not only does it fit! it's stunning! The dress is a LOT heavier than I was expecting, and it is well structured with full boning etc. The lining is a thick bridal satin and then there are several layers of beautiful quality chiffon over the top. The beading is not as sparkly as the original - but I dont actually think thats a bad thing! I was a little concerned that my dress choice was a little too bling for a casual beach wedding... Anyway - so here is the bit you have all been waiting for - the picture
  4. Yeah sorry - I should have been clearer about the shoes Duosheng also made the shoes... I started with a pair of high heel black and white striped shoes I found online, but it in paint and then went from there... I knew I wanted fun and colourful shoes - but everywhere I find them, they have a MASSIVE heel (I'm such a clutz I would end up faceplanting in my wedding dress) so I decided to give duosheng a try for the shoes as well Shoes were $75 including postage - which for shoes that I had a dream about then got to design myself, to match my colour exactly - I'm totally stoked!
  5. So I finally got my pictures from Duosheng... and I think I will have to wait until I get the dress before I know if I am happy or not! The thing that concerns me the most is the size of it! I am a size 16 and this dress looks TINY! I have asked her to confirm the measurements for me, and remeasure the dress, and those were all right - but tell me if you think I am crazy - but that is NOT a 105.5cm waist and 135cm hips! But she assures me that it is, so I guess I will just have to wait... The original is definately not as floral, but I don't mind that... The original is VERY sparkl
  6. I was supposed to get photos of my dress from duosheng on Tuesday, I emailled Wendy on Wednesday, and now its Friday and still no response... I not really worried that anythings wrong - I'm just so anxious!!! I'm DYING to see it and just put my mind at ease! sorry had to vent... but as soon as I get these photos I will put it up for everyone... AAARG! HereFishie & bluestarfishsea you must be so happy - both of your dresses were AMAZING!
  7. OK, so just as a follow up incase anyone is reading this wanting to find them too - An Aussie bride on another forum mentioned that she had seen lots while vacationing in Vietnam - Well I never thought to try and look for a vietnamese onlien retailler!!! Two minutes on google and I have found an online retailler!!! They even have one specificall for candles insted of light globes!!! They are silk so no customs issues... http://www.vietnamonlinestore.com/produ ... _offset_=0 and at less than $5US a pop - they are a BARGIN!!!!
  8. Hi Girls - Sorry I've been a bit quiet! It's been a while - and it has really helped me reading where all of you are up to... I am a bit of an organiser, so I have a few things done, but reading some of your stuff has reminded me of so many little things!! So I thought I would write out fully where I am up to - hopefully it may help one of you! xx Venue booked Our invites are out, and we have started to have people booked! ME: *I ordered my dress fron China which should arrive in the next couple weeks It is a bit of a gamble, but there are no places like David's Br
  9. Hi Girls My internet searching is getting me nowhere! I saw these lamps in a shop window - they are about 30cms tall - and about $60 each! I would love to use them as centrepieces... There are battery operated candles at our resort already (in Fiji) so we are really just looking for the shell of the lamp - and it doesn't need a fancy base... Anyway, just thought I would try you ladies in case someone has seen them before somewhere!! Thanks, Jo
  10. My boss thought it was so strange that someone would send me real flowers in a box! She even commented that they didn't look wilted at all even though they were sealed shut...! The photographer who has done our engagement photos said that silk flowers are easy to tell, but she has done whole weddings with real touch flowers and not realised they were fake until the end of the night when she inspected them as they had not started to droop so she wanted a closer look... Anyone who touches them on the day will be able to tell, but I dont think you can tell at all in photos or fo
  11. I was really happy with the price vs quality. The thing that scared me the most about ordering fake flowers is that people would be able to tell and they would look tacky - I think it is worth paying a little extra to get really good quality that I will be able to keep It was about $150AUD for the flowers inc delivery
  12. You will have to click through from the email they send you. All different combinations of free stuff are on offer at once - but they are set combinations... So you may recieve on email letting you know postcards and rack cards are free, and another that says postcards and flipbooks are free - but unless they are on the same emial, you wont be able to order the free rack cards from one email and the free flipbooks from the other email together in the same order... alway click through from the email and you will be right... remember that the email deals are only available to those recievi
  13. I have been a bit slack lately and haven't uploaded in a while. I am very happy to report that I have recieved my bouquet from Life Like Wedding Flowers I'm so happy! The quality fo the flowers is really good, they are a thick latex with a felt-like touch... Massive thanks to Island Bride for putting me onto this vendor!
  14. Some of you may remember my original monogram, which had a funny hibiscus/face in it. Well my beautiful friend has been very patient with me, and changed it to an orchid, then to a frangipani - and now finally, used a design element from our invites, and I couldn't be happier with the final result! and I am glad to report, that even though I frelt like a I was a horrible, fussy bridezilla - she still loves me (although I do owe her a cocktail at the wedding!) and we are both really happy with the final result
  15. TAaaDAaaa! My invites are finally done! I will start with the finished product: Its has totally been worth it in the end, but an absolute mountain of work. Easy stuff first - pocketfolds were from Cards & Pockets So, to start with I chose a vector design from 123 Royalty Free - Stock Image and Photo Subscription and downloaded a 30day free trial of adobe Illustrator (and taught myself to use it using online tutorials and youtube). I had already ordered some test products from Vistaprint, and knew that I wanted to use rack cards, brochures, postc
