Personally, if you don't have sashes for the ceremony, it won't be a big deal. We just used the regular chairs since our ceremony was only about 30 minutes long. Use the sashes for your reception first.
this is a bit off-topic, but i was wondering where everyone is planning to do their honeymoon? we were thinking belize, but it turns out that to fly there from cancun it takes 8 hours because we'd have to fly back to miami first !? so now we're thinking of staying in the cancun/playa del carmen area. what is everyone else doing?
We stayed for 3 extra days after our guests left to relax and unwind. We then headed up and saved up for our real honeymoon (which was months later). We went to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia!

Congratulations MRS. ! You look stunning Can't wait to see more photos and the review.
So I'm on the fence with one thing in particular that's very important to me- my SHOES! LOL
I work for a shoe company, where we design & produce shoes for stores allover the world! So of course, I'm working on designing my own pair to wear on our wedding day. But, I need some advice- Are heels in the sand really impossible? I really would love to wear a gorgeous high heel and add some height to this short body of mine [I'm 5'3"]. Any past brides with advice?
I'd love to hear what you guys think, thanks =)
Honestly, the sand is so well packed on the beach you can walk in heels no problem. You just have to remember not to apply all your weight onto your heels while standing still LOL! I wore heels, as did all my bridesmaids, and none of us had any problems. And remember heels or no heels, take your time walking down the ramp to the beach. The sand makes it slippery, no matter what you are wearing on your feet!
This is a photo of my shoes. About 2 1/2" heel. And I know about the height issue- I'm 5'3", my hubby is 6'2" and my MOH is 6'! The second photo shows us all just strolling down the beach....no problems.
