I had to dig out the reciept -sorry for the delay!

The tulle is 6"wide, 25ft long and was $4.99!!!! They didn't have a ton of colour choices, but every Michael's I go into has a different selection and this one just happened to have my purple!

BTW -picked up the boudoir book for my FH last night! I'm super stoked, I think it turned out fabulous!smile72.gif

Meghan - My FI's BM is a web designer, they work together in their own company so I get to buy him sushi and give him wine and sit next to him and tell him what to do :) He has Photoshoper and Illustrator, those programs that are just too expensive to own on a regular basis. I designed the entire thing, he just did all the legwork wink.gif

 

Thanks Allisa! Haha, he just emailed me and said it was the proof and not the real image, I totally jumped the gun on showing you all because I was excited!

 

That's a killer price, about 62 cents each assuming you use 2ft per chair - that's a steal!

Any recommendations.

Thanks in advance,
Andrea-
Yes I did...to be honest...the rehersal hair was HORRIBLE. The day of I had 9 girls and everyones hair was amazing! I would tell you to make sure you stay simple. I brought a picture to my rehersal and they could not even come close to it. Let them show you what they are good at and choose from their pics. Thats what we did for the day of and all my girls looked great!

I refuse to give up on this stupid Buganvilla package. I will keep you posted and let you know what happens.

 

Kitten--that is the most creative monogram I have seen. I LOVE it.

 

Good news today....I bought my dressmile29.gif

 

Last night I was looking for nicer dress boutiques for the flower girl. I stumbled on a company that sells samples and what they call once wed gowns. All of them have to be in perfect condition and retail originally $3,500. I took my gay husband from work tonight, and in under an hour bought my dream dress! Even with alterations I am $1k under budget!!!! Finally something was cheaper than I thought. I may start sleeping easier now!

 

I got quotes on the DJ equipment today also. Not as bad as I thought, so I may bring that DJ from Atlanta after all.

Ash - Don't give up, even if only you get discounted we'll all feel a little better :)

 

Thank you, I love it so much!

 

Congrats on buying your dress! And under budget?! That's even BETTER! I went $1,000 over budget on mine... don't remind me!

 

Sounds like you're getting a lot done, that must feel amazing :)

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
