  1. We used Sascha and loved him and his work. Highly recommend his services.
  2. I went with a bouquet of white calla lillies and had the stems wrapped in blue ribbon (that I brought) to match our color. You can pretty much have whatever you want if you don't see it. Just find inspiration pics of what you're looking for and email them to your wc. I couldn't really find the bouquet that I was looking for so I sent Lupita a pic of what I wanted and it turned out better then I had hoped for.
  3. Oh, Heidi I'm sorry to hear that your FI parents are being that way. Big hugs!
  4. Okay, this new site is going to take a while to get use to, but I'm loving it! Ahollo I can't wait to read you review and see your photos as soon as I find them, hahaha! We didn't pay an outside vender fee, but we we're pretty rough with Lupita. She had originally agreed to wave the fee and then when we got there she didn't want to honor it. We just kinda looked at her like she was nuts and flat out told her that we weren't going to pay it. Never did pay it either. We had the steak and shrimp dinner and it was very good. I liked the steak from our reception better then that from the French restuarant. And, we also had a symbolic ceremony, and no, nobody could tell the difference. A couple days after we got home my mil was asking me if their was any paperwork that we should have signed, and I just said hope, everything was all taken care of. Nobody ever knew the difference, and they still don't!
  5. Ahollo, I think your invites are super cute too Invites are really expensive for some reason. A lot of brides on here are addicted to vista print, and I think they do invites too. We didn't do paper invites for our wedding b/c we wanted to keep it really small, but we sent out invites for our AHR that we bought from Target, and had printed at Office Depot. Unfortunately I don't have a pic of them but they looked very professional and really good. For 200 invites, I think I only spent around $70 for them, and that includes the invite, response card, envelopes and all the printing.
  6. I wore this dress and I loved it! So glad that I went with something light and comfortable Good luck selling it.
  7. My husband went through Aqua World, but they nobody on the boat caught a darn thing and they were sea sick the whole time. He goes deep sea fishing all the time, like 24 hour trips and he's never been sick before. Him and all his friends that went didn't have a very good time either, they said they were basically trolling (sp) the whole time. Hope you have better luck then they did!
  8. You should really start looking for your dress now, especially if you want to customize something or if you are looking at higher end dresses, like the Maggie's. I didn't start looking until about 4 months before our wedding (we planned the whole think in 5 months) and I got so lucky that I found one off the rack and didn't need many alterations done to it. Otherwise, it would have easily taken several months for it to come in, and then even longer to have the alterations done. Take it from me, you want to start dress shopping early! And if you're looking for a photographer, consider using Sascha Gluck. We used him and he was fantastic. You can find my review w/ pics here: (the pics on scattered across the first 2 or 3 pages) http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-galore-61203/
  9. My shoes were champagane colored, and complimented my diamond white dress well.
  10. I haven't worn my dress yet, but I've been known to prance around the house in nothing but my veil, panties and my bra!
  11. How are you ladies getting your dress cleaned? Are you just taking it to a dry cleaner or finding a specialzed company to do it? I really need to get my cleaned before any damage happens from the sea salt and chlorine. I just don't want to spend several hundred dollars to have it done.
  12. Tink - I really like your monogram! Very simple and elegent
  13. Fab photos! I loved your idea about putties tiny sea shells at the bottom of your sand, that is so neat!
  14. Agreed, Sascha is amazing. We used him for our wedding and couldn't be happier. Here's the link to my review and tons of photos (scattered across the first 2 pages) http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-galore-61203/
  15. HAPPY WEDDING DAY CAIT!!!!!! I hope it's awesome and can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!!!!!! YAY tinkertoy! Now you can get onto the good stuff, the planning!
