    I emailed Carolina today asking about the new colour sashes and she actually emailed me back within a few minutes! They now have these colours:
    Orange
    Gold
    Emerald Green
    Lime Green
    Fuscia
    Blue

    I'm curious to know what the blue looks like. if it's even remotely close to turquoise, i would be stoked! I think though no matter what, I will just pick one of the colours they offer, it just seems so much easier that way than me carting them down. I already have 40 bubba kegs, and like someone else said - those things are huge!

    i'm still not sure if we're going to bring and decor stuffs. i think when I get closer to the time, if i have some time to think about it i might round up some things to accent the decor already there, but I really don't want to have to lug a lot of stuff around with me.

    We're doing the sand ceremony as well. I keep meaning to go to Michael's to get the sand, since they have it in my wedding colours (turquoise and aubergine). I want to use a picture frame though instead of the vases, so I'm still looking into that.

      I would love to see what this blue is too - I have 50 royal blue colored sashes, at least they don't weigh a lot, but if she already has them that's a big bonus.

            well I am a little annoyed, the price dropped more then $500 for the resort my week with Air Transat, but since myself and my guests have already booked, we are stuck with the higher price. My mom even called and asked our TA. I need to resolve not to let it bother me, but next time I go on such a trip (resort) I am going to just book my vacation time and then wait to book the trip until a month ahead.

              aww,I am really sorry to hear that!!
              It's the problem I had, do I book now do I wait? I took me about 2 months before I decided to book. I was lucky to get a price drop policy, if it drops a min $25 to a max $300 p/p I get to make a claim and get my money back.
              From all the research I've done over the last 3 years of starting to travel, the price is usually higher further from the date, and closer when they realize they aren't selling it the will drop the price, maybe!
              Try and not worrry about it, it's like the freakn' stock market, the price will go back up.
              At least you can say you, and your guest are booked, there is no worries of the place booking up (which could happen) especially during high seasion.

                Hi Glas,
                Sorry I haven't been around but I've had H1N1 for over a week now, and went back to the doctor last night and now I have Strep throat as well. So I haven't been feeling to good.

                I was wondering what everyone was bring down for decorations as well, I was going to try to bring a bunch of stuff but now I think I'm just going to bring my sand ceremony stuff and some paper laterns for the evening. I'm not even going to bring down centerpeices for the dinner, I just can't be bothered. I'm usually always right at my weight when I go away so I know for sure I would be wayyy over if I brought all that stuff down. I'm sure my guests won't care if we have centerpeices or not, especially since were having our AHR a week later.

                And WOW!!!!!!!!!! the gazebo looks amazing!! When I seen the first bunch of pics I was like well, I'm def getting married there! but now, I can't believe I ever thought of the beach!! Mike will just have to suck it up!! lol He will like it once he sees it. PS - He'll be home in 19 sleeps!!!! woottt!!!!!

                  I am sooo sorry to hear you got so sick I hope your going to feeling better real soon, get lots of rest.
                  I've made my centerpieces,and I am reconsidering even taking them!! Like you said, the guest probably wont even notice them, and if i didn't have them it wouldn't be missed, after all no one thinks of centerpieces in DW.
                  I am so like you, I'm always exactly on my weight with the luggage, so I know I'll for sure be over, but I will make a bag and gift it to a guest lol
                  I have the same feelings toward the new gazebo, get best of both worlds, the garden and the ocea!!
                  Where is Mike? 19 sleeps thats long? when my Mike goes away it's usually for 1 week business trip, I am not sure I could handle 19 days!!

                  Feel better xoxo

                      That is crazy talk!!! you must get very lonely. But I am sure your use to it by now. The SIL doesn't see her Husband much either due to work, they joke around saying it's why they are still so in love!
                      I have a cousine who lives in NS and her husband is also in the military and works like your FI. She can relate lol.
                      I'm sure your excited to see him, counting down the seconds. And you get him for 6 months!!! I guess he'll be going back when you guys come home from your wedding?

                      Hows the wedding planning coming along? Or are you even doing anything at the moment wedding related? I find I may do a few things and then kind of get bored,and get back to it a few weeks later. My weeks are starting to run out!
