  1. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do either especially the idea of sand shifting and such. I ended up doing a Unity Glass - www.unityinglass.com It's much more expensive than the sand, but I just received my sculpture and it is FANTASTIC! If you end up doing this I can send you the wording we used in our ceremony.
  2. I was just married in Nassau and used Anne Marie - she is wonderful! The food at the Poop Deck is fantastic, great choice! I can't speak much more to any of your other ideas but I'm happy to give you any recommendations as needed. Happy Planning!
  3. @@Sara1603 - I'm in Texas. I'm happy to ship to Canada but I don't know what the shipping costs would be. If you want to send me a message through the site I'll be happy to estimate shipping costs.
  4. I have a spreadsheet that shows how many people are on each invitation and how many kids they have. We are sending out about 60 invitations but many are out of state so we know they won't come.
  5. I'm in the process of planning my AHR too and am also wondering how to plan for kids. We have many friends/family with small kids so I know they don't eat as much as an adult. We are planning buffet style vs sit down dinner. Any recommendations on how to count people for the AHR for the caterer?
  6. @@atyson03 - I just posted my items in a new post
  7. We had a beautiful wedding last month, now it's time to declutter everything that has been stacking up for months. Please help me clean out! Please see my wedding site at: http://beachweddingdecor.weebly.com I have starfish, sashes, votives, fan programs, and much more!!!
  8. @@atyson03 - I just returned from my DW and will be posting things I have for sale soon. I have 20 4-6" pencil starfish if you are interested.
  9. I have 25 fuchsia chair sashes. I'm getting married this week and will have them available in a few weeks. I'll be happy to sell them upon my return. Please PM me if you are interested.
  10. Thank you both so much for your thoughts! I know that my mom does mean well but none of us are from blended families so I am just trying to keep the kids in mind. I've worked hard these past few years and I don't want to derail that. They have just started saying "I love you" to me (oh it makes my heart melt) and I really want them to go at their own pace. Thanks ladies!
  11. My FH has 2 kids (13 and 10) and we were discussing "what will they call my parents?" The kids already have 2 sets of grandparents and I am clueless what they should call my parents. I've been around the kids for the past two years and they call me by my first name. We were thinking to have the kids call my parents by their first names. But last night my mother insisted they should call her "Nana" just like my brothers kids do. My future step kids have never met my mother (they have met my dad) and just like it's taken time to develop a relationship with them it will take time for my parents
  12. I just received my earrings today and they are beautiful! I ordered through https://www.etsy.com/shop/earringsnation and I couldn't be happier. I ordered 2 pair because I could't decide what I wanted and cost was cheaper for both than one pair in a bridal store!
  13. I have 2 of these candle holders in silver and also 2 shorter silver coral decorations the same look. I'm getting married next month but would be happy to sell them when I'm finished. http://www.decorpad.com/look-4-less/1170/Lazy-Susan-Coral-Candleholder-Gold-Look-4-Less If you want pictures of what I actually have let me know.
  14. I have a friend that is doing my wedding as well. We have worked out an amount that I will pay him for his services, but I'm not paying any hotel/airfare. He is using my DW as a vacation and going to the destination even before I get there with some of our other guests to enjoy some vacation time. We have also mentioned to him to tell anyone local to our destination that he is shooting the wedding for free so he doesn't get in trouble with any immigration laws of working in another country. The majority of the time he will be there will be vacation for him, but he will be our photographer
  15. Here is the garter I got: https://www.etsy.com/listing/153831029/wedding-garter-wedding-garter-wedding?ref=shop_home_active_24 It took a full 6 weeks to get it in but it's beautiful - a little added touch underneath
