    If they look good, why not! But make sure the silk ones aren't more that the real ones. Have you price-compared?

      Did you do a wedding package or basically do everything from scratch

        I did the Dreams wedding package, which was basically the free ceremony and $20pp for ceremony set up & cocktail hour and $20pp for reception set up. A bouquet was included, but I didn't use it. I had my own made.

        I hired Maye Cortinas to coordinate my wedding and basically sent her pictures if things I wanted and she sourced them for me and quoted me a price. I booked my bouquet & flowers, music, cake, centerpieces, paper fan favors, firedancers, & luminaries through her. I used Mariana at Dreams for the food, set-up, tiki torches & wiring of the chinese lanterns. I arranged the photographer, videographer on my own and purchased the Chinese Lanterns on my own. I attached a copy of my budget if you're curious?

        Let me know if you have anymore questions??

                Thanks. It is really important to document every penny and build a cushion into your budget. Because things will come up and that way you won't go over. Just like anything else, stuff adds up fast and if you don't keep track, it could get you into trouble and add a lot of unnecessary stress!

                I got the luminaries from Maye for 2.00 each. Now, it is a paper bag and a tea light, you can do much better by bringing them yourself. I just didn't push it because I negotiated other things down with her. So I picked and chose what was more importmant to me, so I didn't seem like I was trying to screw her!

                  Rebecca,
                  Thank you so much for the budget.. it's true there are so many "little things" that if you don't get track.. you could go way over budget.

                  Question for you if you don't mind. Were you able to negotiate the rate for your Rehersal dinner? If you had 60 and it only cost you $700, that's only like $12/pp.. maybe not everyone was there?

                    Actually, I tried to negotiate the rehearsal dinner, but they would only budge to $18pp vs $20pp. But I took it! We only had 40 at our rehearsal dinner. Bridal party and family only. They also wanted me to select two items. I begged for 3 items and they gave it to me! Are you having your rehearsal dinner at Portofino too? If so, I can tell you what was good!

                      No clue yet. I know I want to have it at Dreams. Most/All of our guest will be getting in that day, Friday. (Ceremony is on Sunday)

                      I went there in '05 and our group ate there one night. I remember it was great.
                      Sorry if you already answered this, but what was on your menu that night?
