I'm looking for the stuff I have on flowers... you can pretty much do anything you want. If you find a photo and send it to Perla, she can get you a price.

For me, I went with a silk bouquet and real lillies around the bamboo gazebo (not the bundles in the corners, but actually wrapped around and up the poles). The bouquet I wanted was $100 (the free one is white roses, which just aren't me), and the bouquet I got from Angels was... $100. So it was a toss-up. I figured I'd go with silk because that way I could keep it forever.

I found the files. I have two other bouquet pictures, but they are too big to post. This one isn't bad, though.

Hi Ladies....I have seriously just read 52 pages of your forum....we are still deciding on location so I might be an "official" member of this forum soon.

 

Does anyone have pictures of the different packages? I am comparing "Aqua" and "Chill Out".

 

Thank you!

Thanks for the heads up! Just read through all three parts and it seems as thought everything went over pretty well.

 

We too hired DJ SWANK - I really hope it's not a total disaster..

We've asked, and begged and pleaded. Unless you are in Royal Service, they will not reserve, block or otherwise formally save chairs. You can always go down early and put a bunch of towels or whatever on them and hope no one moves them.

You are quicker than me, you told everyone before I did LOL. Well I know there is tons I forgot so dont be afraid to ask.

Oh and on the paying one month in advance situation I was told the same thing and Im not sure if they were completely swamped or what but I emailed before we left and asked Perla about it she just told me to have everything ready when I arrived. Due to other weddings and conflictions I dont think I ended up paying until 3 days before the actual wedding. Turns out they did not charge me correctly either, they charged my cc in Pesos instead of the Dollar amount (I didnt even notice). After our wedding ended Perla came over to explain what happened and asked if I could meet with her in the morning to redo the remaing portion of the payment (I felt a little bad b/c it was her day off she was coming in just wrap this up). Due to weather and not having the reception outdoors we never ended up having some decor we requested Perla took this off the bill as well which Im not 100% sure would have been refunded if I had already paid in advance but I would certainly ask this question.

Quick question:

I haven't even received my estimated cost yet but I am just assuming that I will sometime soon. (?) I have had some emails with Perla and she has told me by the end of the week 2x's now. It's okay though I have done a rough estimate (thank you Missy for the spreadsheet) so that we could know what the budgeting was looking like. Do you '09 brides have that yet? I am assuming she is super swamped.

 

Thanks again for the review Michelle!

Congratulations Michelle! Thank you so much for your detailed reviews, your wedding looked amazing and you were a beautiful bride.

 

Do you mind if I ask where you got your cake topper? Its so cute.

Did you ever do a site visit or did you make all your decisions through email? We have been told we have to finalize the details a month ahead of time so that they have time to order things....was wondering if anyone else was told this and how easy would this be if we aren't doing a site visit?

 

 

Yamille - we havn't got our 09 pricing yet we are basing it on the 08 pricing and leaving room for the price increase as Im sure there will be one!!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
