toya.. thanks for letting us know, i had no idea her pics were up!

 

tara, it wasn't my original idea either, so no worries there. we're actually using a large wall map that we're going to get framed when we get home.

 

adrian'smommy.. the reception lasts 3 hours, but i believe you can pay a fee to have it last longer. or just take everyone to the disco afterwards!

I am going kinda crazy right now. I am trying to figure out a flower shop with in Ont or even Can. to use, but so far not much luck.
I bought some bouquets from another member, paid for them, but have yet to receive them or really hear from her so not sure what's up with that.
I am worried too about shipping/weight constraints for flying... like i was thinking of buying flowers for centrepieces and putting them together myself (or with help). I was at dollarama last night and saw square glass vases to use but they are pretty heavy... I don't know... I have to email Deyanira and ask her what kind of vases or centrepieces they offer there... my problem is too, that there are soooo many ideas to choose from, that I can't decide..
Then, I am still trying to figure out about a legal or civil ceremony.. financially it would make way more sense to do it here before or after, but then I still feel like we are lying to people...to add to all that, if it's going to be civil, then I need to really get on doing all the paperwork for it... censored.gif

I am getting overwhelmed when I think of all this stuff.. that and my trip payment is due this afternoon and we are not getting a free room like we thought, so there's another $3600 to add to our bill. censored.gif
OMG, this is long... sorry about that.. guess I needed to ventblush2.gif
How is it going for you?

Do any of you know how long the reception is? We have our ceremony at 5pm and we decided on a beach reception. I am so excited.
The receptions last for 3hours, but for an additional $10/person/hour you can extend it..
I think we are just going to have the 3 hours and then go to the disco.. so much keeps adding up, it's freakin me out a bit...
I thought destination weddings were supposed to be cheap!!


Have you thought about a DJ? or a photographer?

Another thought is to have fiberglass or plastic centerpieces but not sure if they would lookd cheap.. maybe Ikea would have something like that..

Tam I don't hasve MUCH about the centrepieces, I have a picture or two from the email she sent me! I am planning to "make my own", since it is probably cheaper... I have a pic at home that I am modeling my centrepieces after, and giving it to Deyanira to set up... we are just doing the disco thing too, its not cheap it makes sense!! You don't have enough for the free room? What happened, dropouts?

I plan on going cheap as hell on centerpieces. I don't think it costs a lot of money to put a nice one together from the dollarstore if you are crafty enough. Candles, for example, can look really pretty and ad a really nice warm touch. I was thinking of just getting those tea candles and a deep bowl/glass to protect it from the wind. Throw some pretty rocks around it and voila!
