      this picture is from the sheraton hacienda del mar website and is basically what made me want a DW....

      soooo, we won't be that close to the water but oh well! i know we'll have white chair covers (required and provided), but i can't decide if i want white sashes or navy sashes on the chairs....white sashes are free but navy are approx. $4 per sash...the petals will be yellow rose petals instead of pink, and i don't want anything @ the "altar" (just me, scott, preacher, and 5 attendants on each side)....SOOOOO what do you think: navy sashes or no? i can't decide if it's worth the cash...? ((same dilemma for the reception))

      let me know what you think.....other suggestions are welcome!
      I say go with the navy. It will add some colour to things.

        That's really cool! You will have to show me your pics when you return.
        I have talked with a couple people that have my date. The other girl is actually going to the resort I am and her wedding is after ours.
        22's are just in with us (both b-day's are 22's) so we figured keep the chain going.

          Geez, I go away for 2 days and there 5 pages of new posts! Welcome to all who have joined the thread in the past few days. I've been getting moving with my planning again after taking a few weeks off. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

          Andrea, I love these too, but didn't want to end up with 250 of them! I would need 40. If we can get enough people who need them I'd love to order with everyone. Starfish are all-over my wedding stuff so that'd work for me, but if someone comes up with something else that'd probably work too.

            OOOh, I might be interested in going in on the cups. I have to talk to FI first (not tonight lol). We were talking about doing travel mugs, so I have to see if he wants to do the cups instead. I'm not 100% sure how many I need right now because we still have people booking and our deadline isn't until mid-November, but I'm sure to have a better idea of the number in Sept or so...

            Anyway, depeding on when you put the order in adn what FI wants to do, we might be in :)

            My shower was this weekend :) Other than the massive fight with FI RIGHT before it, it was wonderful. I have to wait for everyone to send me their pics and then I'll post a thread :) I can't wait to use all my fun new toys!!!!!!

                Dez---how fun!! I won't have a shower until December =) I'm nervous about opening gifts in front of all my FI's mother's friends....I'll have to drink a little wine first =) and yes, we'll have to meet at the MP since we're both staying there and getting married a day apart =) The planner on-site planner with Aventura is wonderful!! But I hope I don't wish I'd stayed at MP!

                And I'd go with one color Sash. I like Navy and then the pretty flowers will "pop" =)

                I'm trying to pick out invitations this week! My mom and family are NO HELP. I swear no one has an opinion until I make a decision =) ANOTHER reason I'm having a DW!!!!

                Oh--and I found my MOH dress on ebay, it's jcrew and a green color called aloe.

                I'll post pictures of everything soon! Everyone looks so beautiful in theirs!

                Time for another work week! =)

                  I was gonna do Bubba Kegs but it was gonna be too pricey.
                  I did normal plastic drinking cups that flash colour when you turn them on. It has a mini flip flop with our names and wedding date attached :)
                  I think they will be neat.

                      Looks like you had a blast Dez!!! I hope you guys got everything you wanted!!!! I'm not sure about the whole shower thing? My mom has mentioned it before, but I haven't heard anything further. The only thing we are "registered for" is $ for our honeymoon, so I'm not sure how we would have a "shower." Almost one more month down can you believe it? I feel like a broken record but I'm having such a hard time with the GM clothing!!! AHHHHHHH Everytime I think I have it figured out there either isn't the right size, isn't the right color, isn't the right this, or isn't the right that! I'm ready to scream!!! And my FI's suit came in and his pants look like MC hammer!!! I was trying not to giggle, but after he was like "Oh I think it fits perfectly" I had to tell him how low his crotch was actually hanging. (men are so funny sometimes) Anyway, he's been losing weight so I don't know if he should wait another month or two and order a different size, or order now? I'm affraid the suit will be out of stock. Who would have thought the MEN'S clothing would be such a PITA?
