We are using LED lights. I got them from Dollar Tree 2 in a pack for $1. I will be selling all of my stuff when it's all said and done if anyone is interested in them. I have 72 tealights and they flicker like fire. I actually tested them against more expensive LED's and liked the look of these cheaper ones better.

Can't believe yours is over already! Everyone keeps asking me if I'm ready to get it over with and I'm not. I have no clue what I'm going to do next month without wedding stuff to plan.

I know you got answers already but I would definitely consult the mutual friend first. The conversation may have come up between them already and your questions may be answered without ruffling any feathers. HTH!

I have to be honest and say I'm not a fan either. I love the idea, just think that maybe you could execute a little differently if you don't mind me saying. Maybe a smaller feather on the strap across the toe? I do agree with the all clear rhinestones if you choose not to get the pink shoes. If you still want that pop of pink maybe you can put it on the bottom of the shoe so when you kick your feet up its visible. I know Paris Hilton has shoes with pink soles (similar to the red of Louboutins). Of course it will cost more than $9 which I'm not sure I'd want to give up either. Try www.endless.com or www.zappos.com for your shoes....they have tons. Plus with them you get free shipping both ways and can return up to 365 days after purchasing. This way, if you're indecisive like I am you can change your mind about them with no obligation. I do, however, like the idea of the peacock feather (I wish I would have incorporated them into my wedding) but I do think it would look better with a hot pink shoe.

For my wedding  however I am a fan of a deep purple (plum) or burgandy if pushed into a corner to decide.   So...I've looked at a few websites, incl "the knot" and I am not convinced by any one colour as "awesome"....

but I am partial to the plum/purple:

the debate (all including green and likely some white with a plum backdrop):

purple and orange

purple and yellow

purple and lime only

another combo???

My style is- sharp, modern and simple.

Thoughts?

I'm a huge fan of the plum/purple. My colors are dark purple and bronze with green accents. For once in my life I was fashion forward and now that purple is the color for fall. I see it everywhere! This way it should be easy for you to find elements of purple that you're looking for.

Welcome home MRS. Amanda!!!  thewave.gif

 

Sorry to hear there were mixed feelings.  I hope everything is settled smoothly with Karisma and I'm glad to hear that overall you didn't find it to have damaged your wedding memories greatly!!  So glad your time at the resort was good overall (weather, food, visuals from day of etc).  Can't wait to hear the review!! 
 


I was quoted the same price as Maggie.  $85 for day of hair but not makeup.... hmmmm....

Which spa menu do you have?
 


 



Thanks for this suggestion.  I'm definitely going to talk it over with her too.

I got my hair down at the spa and loved it. Even though I think I was quoted $80 from my Miami WC they only charged me $50 onsite and it was well worth it. I didn't do a hair trial and I knew what I wanted but my girl was great and let me talk her through it as we were going. If I didn't like it I am sure she would have taken the time to fix it/do it over again. The salon staff was really wonderful.

Amanda, did you put your hair apt etc. on your details sheet?  Or did you just tell them when you got there.  I'm worried that I'll want to know that we have booked enough time in the spa (making me want to book it on my sheet) ... but don't want to be charged a potentially higher amount because I book/pay ahead of time.  Thoughts?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
