    oh pashminas are a good idea! are you doing them for just the weddding party or all the guests? Where are you getting them from? I'm still working on groomsmen gift ideas - my fiance wants to do something different (like not a flask or cufflinks, etc.) but he is not coming up with any other ideas...

      I'm doing pashminas for all female guests! we will have them display in a table the day of the wedding for the ladies to use towards the end of the dinner when it gets a bit more cold at the terrace... I'm getting the pashminas from: Wholesale pashmina solid scarves wholesale pashmina scarves
      I haven't order them yet as I have plenty of time before my wedding and I want to order once I have the final RSVP's from my guests.
      For the male guests we are not sure what to do... like I said, I would love to do cigarsss but most of my guests don't smoke so not sure yet...

        I was thinking about putting my favors in the welcome totes, along with the other welcome gifts. I like the winestopper idea as well.Do you think that's ok? I just didnt know if people are going to want to carry another thing after the reception. My totes include custom coozies, magnetic picture frames, gum, personalized chapstick and sunscreen, trail mix, granola bars, wine stoppers, fancy soap, cookie cutters. I think thats it so far.... I think I am going overboard with items for the bags but oh well, its fun to buy stuff!

        Also, I'm bringing my daughter who will be 18 months and I'm definitely bringing a car seat - I know she is a bit younger then the other kids you guys have been mentioning but I've heard the ride in from the airport is really rough and bumpy. And we also need the carseat for the drive to the airport un nyc

        I booked in May 2009, so it wasn't that far off from when you booked. I would definitely have your travel agent look into it. Good luck to you!!!

          I love the pashmina idea! Are you getting a variety of colors for your guests, or going neutral?

            For those of you who are using paper lanterns as one of the decorations for your reception, I am curious to hear how you are going to use them. Are you buying the plain paper laterns and simply hanging them up around the reception site, or are you also buying strig lights to hang up and then hang one laterns at each light bulb, or is anyone using the battery powered paper lanterns?

                That's a great idea. Love the colors!!! I'm thinking that I might go with bottle openers but now you have my mind racing. I would love to have pashminas all draped over the chairs for the ladies. Hmmmm, you creative divas you!

                    Hi ladies! I've been reading through this thread to get some ideas and see what I've forgotten to think of. It's been a lot of help now that I'm less than 3 months away. You all seem to really have it together!

                    We decided to have the civil ceremony at home and symbolic one there after reading about others' experiences, but I'm not quite sure what the ceremony will look like down there. I know we're writing our own vows and we'll exchange rings, but that seems like it'd only take 5 minutes. Does anyone have suggestions or can you give me an idea of what yours will be like?

                      You could add a sand ceremony... Sand Ceremony Sets and Sample Vows
