      ohh one more question are those the silks orchids you ordered ?

      and I think I may do the clear crushed ice or clear marbles at the botton so I can add the waterproof LED lights

        we got our orchids at hobby lobby actually.. the only decent flower i found there! i cleaned out two store of them since i knew we would need them for bouts, centerpieces, hair flowers and possible BM bouquets.

        the vase in the picture is an 8 in. cylinder. the ones i have are 11 in. (tall) squares.. probably a 4 x 4 square.

        i think the crushed ice look would be GREAT! i tried just clear stones and it looked weird too... too reflective.. the colors they picked up took your eye away from the flowers. with the LED lights, that will look fantastic!

        here is how my flower lady (she'd laugh if she knew i was calling her that) explained how to get the orchids to stay in place:
        "The stem needs to be kept longer so the flower can be held in place with the pebbles. For a silk flower, you'd leave the stem long because it's wired. You have to leave a few inches of the stem straight (coming down out of the flower) then bend the wire and make a circle with the remaining stem (kind of like a base). This circle would sit flat on the bottom of your vase before adding pebbles to anchor it."

        does that make much sense? i can't tell you the difference it made though... hers look 100x better than the ones i tried to put together!!

                Hey ladies!

                Hope everyone's planning is going well!

                Ebredhawk, I may have missed this (brain not functioning at full capacity this morning), but where did you order your bags/towels from? They seem reasonably priced, and I'm hoping to do something like that for my guests as well.

                  I plan on making my reception just like it would be here with an intro of the bride and groom, a first dance, dinner, then a toast ,and party til they shut us down since the reception is only 3 hours, I told all my guest we can continue the party in the disco lounge around 11pm

                  So lets say I ask for my reception dinner at the bordeaux restaurant on the patio... I might NOT have 50 people maybe about 30. Could we theoretically just have the supper and then go to the disco? Or by taking a dinne package does that mean we have to have a reception with music, toasts, intro, etc.?

                    Toya and Nat,
                    That's what I was thinking of doing too... I don't want to have to pay the extra esp just for an hour..It would be different if you didn't have time constraints, but I would rather just do the basic, I think??

                      I don't see why you laides would have to pay for the extra hour if once you are done dinner you go to the disco. That would make no sense to have to pay for it, but then again you never know. Better to ask the WC's at DPC.
