  1. @JayKay - I think all of the suits were English Beige. However, we ordered the groom's suit 3 months earlier than everyone else's as a test. They must have come from different fabric lots.The groom's pants were also the straight cut. We thought they might be too narrow for the other guys and had them order the classic fit. Hope that helps.
  2. I am so excited to be sharing our wedding with you all. Get ready for a long post with lots of photos... How it began - Brett and I met in the fall of 2000 during our junior year at TCU. Due to the number of coincidental connections we had, we were destined to meet and although we started out as friends, it quickly blossomed into more. Our first kiss was like it was out of a fairy tale. We were at a overnight event with our business fraternity and stayed up all night chatting in a barn overlooking the river. As the sun came up, Brett leaned in for a kiss and I was smitten. Engageme
  3. Thanks for all the help! I cannot believe that we leave for Mexico tomorrow! I am so excited!!! Can't wait to tell you all about it.
  4. We have decided to stay at Mezzanine. It is the sister property of La Zebra and it looks nice from the website. If anyone is looking for information about Tulum, you should check out my friend's travel journal about his trip with his girlfriend. There are a lot of good food recommendations and photos - http://www.everlater.com/natty/shambala-in-mexico/tulum-mexico. We're also planning to use the Everlater website to upload all of our photos from the wedding. It makes it really easy to create photo books and cards. And Barbara, thanks again for getting back to me. I will defin
  5. I did not keep any of the material from my dress, but I did order hankies online from Bumblebee Linens (http://bumblebeelinens.com/). I ordered 6 with blue flowers for the moms and bridesmaids (one for me too) and 6 with white stripes for the dads, groom and groomsmen. I'll let you know what their like when I get them. I ordered on January 6th, they shipped on the 7th and I am hoping they make it here by the end of the week.
  6. Here is my dress! I am so excited and cannot wait to show it off at our wedding in a month. I will not wear the blue sash until the reception. It's basically a blue ribbon tied in a bow.
  7. I am in desperate need of help. Our wedding is less than 5 weeks away and we still have not booked our honeymoon!!! We are getting married on Isla Mujeres and plan to honeymoon in Tulum. We have fallen in love with photos of the beached there, but we've never been. My fiance and I are pretty adventurous and prefer a romantic boutique beach hotel with some privacy. We have stayed in an all-inclusive before and it's just not our thing. My ideal place would also have an outdoor shower - how romantic! Our honeymoon time is going to be pretty short so I want to make sure that everything
  8. Thanks everyone! Dominiqueamber - Thanks for sharing the story of showing the video to your fiance. It is funny how different men and women think! :-) Hamme - The song is called Milk & Honey and it is by Million BIllion. I absolutely love the whole album. Too bad the band broke up after the first album was released.
  9. Teira1013 - I have the same question about the stapler...did you just use a regular one? I am really confused as to how you got it in the middle of the invitation without bending the paper. BTW, these are fabulous! Amazing job!!!
  10. Here is a photo I took of the orange satin runner. It's with my iPhone and under indoor lighting. Side note: my mom is a big scrap booker and we are using "pumpkin pie" paper for our thank you notes. I held it up to the runners and it seems like a pretty close match. Here is a link to the paper website. http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=119939
  11. You did such a great job! I liked the idea when I saw it in Martha Stewart Weddings, but I think yours is even better. Thanks for the tip on Paper Source. I am going to have to look into this again.
  12. mochamakes3 - I would say the color is pretty orange with a gold shimmer in the light. Since I went with the satin, the color is more saturated. I think the organza would have been too light. I feel like my mom is trying to push me toward coral over orange (I don't think she really likes orange), but I am hoping to sway her when I show her these over the weekend.
  13. This was very helpful. My mom and I are going to try to make my veil this weekend and I am very nervous. You make it seem so easy. And it turned out great.
