Not tacky at all. I plan on re-using as much as possible!  Any flowers used in the ceremony will definitely be making its way to the reception.  Bouquets, hanging flowers...all of it!  My WC also highly recommended doing this, so I'm sure it wont be a problem with the resort to transfer everything.

I totally understand.  It took my FI a long time to get it together but i just kept leaving the sites up on the computer and eventually after he saw my bridesmaids were done he got on the ball.  It all works out just don't stress.  Our groomsmen are wearing yellow linen shirts and white linen pants.  My FI is wearing a white linen suit with the same yellow shirt as the groomsmen.  It looks really nice.  FI even bought the pants.  We purchased them from www.islandimporter.com  We had to do custom orders cuz his groomsmen are pretty tall. great service and received items sooner than expectedcheesy.gifQuote:

FI is wearing a white linen suit that he choose himself. The groomsmen are wearing Volcom shirts and shorts (again FI choice- although I had to bug him a little to order them in the summer, before the summer clothes were gone)

Q for you ladies, does your ring get really big in the winter?  Mine is spinning around my finger a lot.  I'm wondering if it needs to be sized down again, or if it's just the winter season.  I'm guessing winter???

Yes, mine is bigger in the winter and smaller in the summer.  Its ok if it swings around a little, but if you shake your hand really hard and it starts to come over your knuckle (or any chance of losing it) you should get it sized.  Then in the summer time it should be difficult to get on, but be comfortable around your finger.

 

I used to work in jewelry so I have this whole sizing thing down to a T!  :)

My guests are calling me because my weekend is sold out.  I only have 16 people booked, plus us.  I TOLD them 2 months ago to book their rooms, get on a payment plan if you need too, etc.  Now I'm stressed because so many people will not be there.  If anyone getting married that weekend has any left over blocked rooms please let me know.

I am ordering tall glass vases to double as my isle runners during the ceremony and then table toppers at the reception.  Gazebo flowers will also be transferred too!

Anywhoo sharing the tiffany runners and sashes is a fabulous idea! Let me know....


 



Our groomsmen are wearing tommy bahama shirts and custom made pants.  My groom will be wearing a custom suit for the ceremony then he is changing into the matching tommy bahama shirt for the afterparty.  Just simple white/creamy coloured linen shirts.

I wish I nudged my FI more - all the suits will be done in the nick of time for the wedding next month.  Hopefully wacko.gif

I guess I shouldn't worry - I gave up on my original wedding dress when I went for a fitting a couple weeks ago!  I will never buy from a sample sale again!  Fortunately a local wedding shop still carried the designer I love and I found "the dress".  I got so lucky!  It too will be ready right before we leave...

If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
