Thanks for your wonderful review!!! I'm so happy you had such a wonderful experience. I just have a couple questions...(sorry!)

Chandlyn took the pics to the florist, and at an additional cost, I had the most beautiful bouquet. There were burgundy calla lillies, blue orchids, burgundy roses, greenery, and it was wrapped in a gorgeous ribbon of turquoise and pinned with pearls. It was beyond my expectations. What was the cost of the upgraded bouquet? Did you have bridesmaids? If so, what was the cost of their bouquets?



I actually didn't care too much about the cake. At most weddings I've attended, nobody really pays attention to the cake. Therefore, I went with the "free" cake offered. My husband had one stipulation...it must be chocolate. Therefore, we ended up with a vanilla/chocolate cake with white icing and beautiful blue orchids on each of the three levels. Again, beautiful beyond my expectations. Was the free cake large enough for 60 people?


Beach Wedding:

We were married on the beach at 4:30 pm under the hoopa. It was wrapped in soft, gauzy white cloth which was then lightly wrapped in real vines. A beautiful greenery arrangement with some of the same flowers from my bouquet were set on the top of the hoopa. It was larger in the middle and extended out and tapered to the sides, which then wound down the edges. It's hard to decribe, but I'll eventually try to post a pic. Sheldon, the minister was wonderful and had a great sense of humour. The vows were very easy to follow and quick! It was over before we knew it! What was the cost of the hoopa? Did you have any other extra decor (flowers, etc)?



The reception was at the Plantation as we had about 60 people attending. We had the upstairs level completely to ourselves. It is shaped in an "L". Chandlyn, my mother in law, and mother put the bridal table in the middle of the "L" and tables of the guests extended out either side. There was a space in front of the bridal table for speeches, dancing, etc. It was perfect.

That does sound perfect! Did you have a choice between the upstairs or downstairs?


We rented the DJ for four hours. We had so much fun at the end of four hours, we rented them for another one! They played perfect dining music, and after dinner, played a great mix for all of the age ranges present. You could take your own music...but they did such a phenomenal job, we never once used our own! Was the dj able to play burned cds? Like, if I brought our first dance song, could he play it?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
