Can you explain how the lanterns work and what lights you used.  We have the christmas lights but i am so confused on what all i need to buy for the lanterns.  SO DENSE right now cause there is so much to organize.  If any one could feel me that would be wonderful. FI wants them and now i'm trying to figure it all out last minute.    HElp!!!!

There are a couple of things you can do. There are tons of electrical outlets in the gazebo, so you could just run the Christmas lights into the laterns.

The DIY LED lights. Quite simple-there is a forum on here where I got the instructions. It was super easy. We bought the batteries and LED lights from dealextreme.com . We bought 40 batteries and 120 LED for about $30.

The basics are tape the LED lights and battery together with electric tape..stick a piece of plastic between the battery and contacts for travel. Once you get to the resort, remove the plastic piece and use a small alligator clip to keep the battery and contacts tight.

Thanks murmel!!! Awesome.  

 

Maggie, I don't blame you.  I get very frustrated with diy sometimes that buying premade may be worth the extra price.  My fan panel programs are working on my last nerve now!! LOL

I actually thought Zavaz Terrace was Zocalo Al Fresco... 

 

BigBop I haven't sent out invites either, and my wedding is before yours! 

 

I guess the saying about "misery loves company" is true in some ways! msnwink.gif For some reason hearing that I am not alone with the tardy invites made me feel so much better! I have been feeling like a slacker regarding these dang invites and some days I ponder about why I am even sending them out to guests since it is so late. Everytime I read something that suggests it's okay to send them out 6 weeks before the big day, I have a silent confirmation that I don't suck that bad afterall. cheesy.gif Thanks for sharing, I feel better already......

I'm having some memory issues, so hopefully you girls can help.  Did the free wedding package ever include the brides bouquet?  ($60 credit towards one at least).  I could've sworn it did, but my WC now says its not, and I cant find my original package info!

 

I've changed my package multiple times, so anything is possible :)

I had to pay for my bouquet (we did the Free Sweetheart), but it was $60. It was beautiful.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
