  1. Hi! I had my wedding back on august 4. We didnt invite many people -- only those closest to us and had a turnout of about 40 total. I am going to be attending one of my friend's weddings next month, and wasn't sure how much to give. My friend and I have been friends since graduate school (about 4.5 years --- still currently in grad school together. We are working on our PhDs. I had a shower, and invited his fiance. His fiance and cousin (I also am in school with his cousin, but have only known her for like 2 years) bought me a combined gift totaling about $50. At the weddin
  2. I had 40 guests.... everything was perfect! I mean - there were a few minor things that weren't "perfect", but I'm naturally a very laid back person and these minor things didnt bother me... also, it all worked out ok in the end anyway: - my dad didnt get a boutinere - this was my fault because i ordered 5 instead of 4.... but my dad also came late to wedding, so im sure that he would have been able to wear the flower instead of one of the groomsmen if he had shown on time. - my bridesmaids had to stand (there werent enough chairs).... but this was ok! they improvised. - we ordered live

  6. Hello!!! I just got back from my Mexican wedding I have nothing but amazing things to say. I hope you find my review helpful: - We were engaged on July 4, 2013. We always knew that we wanted a smaller wedding, so a destination seemed ideal. Three years ago we traveled to the Gran Bahia Coba resort, so decided it would be good to host our wedding there since we were already familiar with it. - Since I am still in school (grad student working on doctorate), our wedding dates were limited to either August or December (when I have a break from classes). We decided on august 4, and b
  7. Do you think if we give the DJ a USB with mp3 music files on it he will be able to play it for us?
  8. oh yes good point! Thanks! I think making it at 5:30 might be better anyway because doing a run through shouldn't take more than like 15 minutes? and we want to meet everyone up at 6 for a "dinner rehearsal"
  9. no - but i figure we can do a run through near it. i just want people to see it before
