I am sure some of the stuff I am brining down I wont care about returning with and it is only going to be used once. This is my cheap and not wasting mind thinking.
    Even if a bride left stuff there they would charge you to use it! That's what we're dealing with at AB. We wanted to use some umbrellas a bride left at the resort for future couples to use. The hotel charges $6 per umbrella plus a $50 hanging fee. While $140 is not much in the grand scheme of things, it's the principle of it that really pisses us off, so we will not be using the umbrellas!

          Google! I copied & pasted tons and then decided on a couple main things I really liked and wanted to say - like adventure with you through life, help to grow intellectually, and "I promise this for all of my days".

          We are going over the words next weekend together to see if we want to change them at all. Our vows are the same for eachother - the introduction the minister does before the vows is slightly different.

          I started with the ceremony Tiffany gave me & changed pretty much the whole thing - LOL.

          We are having "The Art of Marriage" by Wilfred A Peterson read by FI's Mom too. LOVE it.

          And doing the "Hand Ceremony".

          Seriously, I guess brides used to go to the library to find all this stuff? How much easier we have it with GOOGLE!!!

            Sammy, I am using 2 sheets - so its a lot of money! I wish I had not said I wanted the 2 sheets until I got down to Mexico and seen if maybe they would not charge me for the 2nd one. Ah well..... I am doing uncovered chairs and no bows so I am saving $ there I suppose. I am using the wooden plank runner and 2 tall glass flower vases with white Gladiolas in them. I am going for more of a rustic theme/look for the ceremony, hence the simple, all white decor.

                I feel exactly the same way. With this sorta thing you have to weight things out and see what just works the best, bringing your own or just coughing up the money. I'm leaving so much stuff there, I wish I could pass it along to another bride getting married the following week or something.

                I am writing our entire ceremony with FI... ish.
                Hi Ladies! I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had a crazy Saturday night, which declared Sunday lazy couch day.

                I did however buy some pashmina's from another BDW bride. It actually feels like I accomplished something... even if it wasn't on my list. Every little bit counts!
                Gotta love the crazy Saturday nights, I had a great weekend as well, Sunday was a little rough getting out of bed and having to go to our first dance lesson... but once we were done and I realized we were exactly 5 miles from the beach, I hit PCH and we drove for awhile and then grabbed some seafood on the ocean, that was amazing the weather over the weekend was GORGEOUS.

                Pashminas weren't in my plan either but I bought some and love them!

                Like Amy said below... GOOGLE! Gotta love it :) I was writing my vows last night and was looking at the suggestions on the knot and they were actually really helpful -

                Oh how exciting!! You are going to have a blast, you sound confident and ready, just how you should be! You are going to rock it girl

                We too are doing the hand ceremony, I love it!

                For real, how did people write vows before Google, straight from the heart
                Sammy, I am using 2 sheets - so its a lot of money! I wish I had not said I wanted the 2 sheets until I got down to Mexico and seen if maybe they would not charge me for the 2nd one.

                You found your theme!!! I love it!! Are you putting the 2 vases at the bottom of the chuppah? I totally see this theme coming together :)

                Sorry for being an MQ whore, trying to catch up with you girls!

                    I was also originally quoted 50/sheet of fabric, and didn't tell me colored was more then when she finally added it to my planning sheet she put it down for 150/sht and didn't even tell me and now she wont honor her original quote.

                    I bought real touch flowers, I am about to get my final proof pictures any day now and I'll put up some pictures once I get them. http://www.sharonnagassardesigns.com/ is where I got mine from.



                    Awww, thanks Nicole! This morning, waking up at what now is 4am, after tossing and turning all night, wedding nightmares and general bad sleep, I look like a zombie.



                    I too am buying 2 pieces of fabric and got quoted $50 each or $65 or something I think, white is cheaper I believe.
