Good idea for the guestbook!

Hey Kate,

I made out with Ikea, Pier 1, and Homesense gift cards. It was mostly cash gifts because we live so far away that cash would be the easiest to travel with. It was such a good time.

I hadn't posted my dresses on this thread but I do have them in the Bridesmaid dresses thread (it should open up to the right page, if not, it's page 53). The dresses are going to be in Espresso. They each have a different style but we used the same designer and fabric to make sure they were cut from the same roll of fabric.

I can't wait till they come in! smile159.gif

Hey, I got the same BM dresses as you. The third one you posted for BM2. My MOH got it in espresso and my BM got it in tahiti blue. I love them! They are really flattering. Can't wait for them to come in...

As promised, here are some pics of the orchid curtain that I made to go on the arch behind us during the ceremony.

 

The beach ceremony location:

(Obviously not us, but it shows the arch so I thought I'd post)

The curtain will hang on the arch behind us during the ceremony. I made the curtain before the WC had sent me pics of the ceremony location, so it may not work as I had thought. I will see how it would look once I'm down there and can see for myself.

(please ignore the lack of crown molding and half finished paint job at the ceiling....waiting for someone to put it up, hint, hint...)

Our chair sashes won't be orange as they are in the picture. Our colours are aqua/teal and gold, with hints of pink. The chair sashes will be gold, and the BM dresses will be teal. Here are a few pics of their dresses from the site.

We bought our airfare on Thursday!!!

 

FH and I had a minor fight over the cost of airfare earlier this week; basically, he was more than willing to pay more than $600 for plane tickets and I wasn't (I told him I would rather drive from Maryland to Florida than spend that amount of money).

 

Well, I found the cheapest cost, at $186 per person, round trip, totaling $372.

 

And, one of my best friends live near Ft. Lauderdale (where we're flying in) and has offered us his home until the cruise ship leaves, so that saves us some money on taxi's and hotel!!

 

I still need to find a wedding dress and FH outfit...

AWESOME! What color are you thinking? A lot easier with only one!

I found out that my BM dresses are not going to be in for another 9-10 weeks!!! They were supposed to be in already but it was a popular color or something. Grrrr....
