      Sorry I've been MIA recently girls - just keeping busy!

      Maybe you girls can help- my FI and I are looking for his suit. We're looking for a nice khaki suit (I am picturing him wearing it with a linen-type white shirt, top two buttons unbuttoned..). We have been to Nordstrom, Macy's, Bloomies, Banana Republic & JCrew... and can't find one! Anyone have a khaki suit-spotting lately?

        Have you tried bluefly.com? My FI bought an amazing Zegna Suit! A ton of stuff is on sale!

          I PM'd you about this.

Do you mind me asking how long it took for her to produce your order from the time you submitted it? Also, how did the travel/transport to AS from Cali go for your flowers and how did you pack them?
            You're welcome! I suggest you contact her and ask her questions, she always answered my emails in a timely manner as was very helpful with all the questions I had. I ordered my flowers in September and received them mide February. She is so busy that you need to give lots of time for Real Touch. You can find out how far out she is booked out to give you an idea of when to order if you ask her.

            Thx! We're using white lillies and white, purple and lime callas.[/url]
            Yeah there were some candles on the table, definitely plenty of room for candles.

            Pretty! Love the colors and the lillies, those should go great with either bronze or white blume boxes, good choice!

            I have a good friend who (I did bullets cause it was wayyyy too long):
            - took my original wedding date
            - asked me to be in her wedding
            - refused my request when I asked her to be in mine
            - told me that since mine is a month after hers, she has to "see if they have money left" after theirs is over to come to mine
            - chose a dress and shoes for us that total almost $500
            - chose a honeymoon location that required plane tix that were $4000 (just airfare)
            - cancelled that honeymoon because she needed more money to spend on the wedding (although everything was already planned and money was already alotted)
            - called and asked for my TA's info NOT for info on how much travel was for our wedding, but for recommendations on placed to go for her honeymoon
            - just got her mortgage reduced over $1k/month (approx cost for her and her FI to come to my wedding = $1600)
            - and constantly says she's poor!!
            How is everyone doing on their "to do's?" I got my invitations mailed!!! YAY!! I will post pictures soon. They turned out great, but they were SUCH a labor of love. Hours and hours and hours and hours of DIY.
            I think I'm doing pretty good! I need to remember what they are, mine need to be completed by Thursday so I need to update you by then!

              I plan to get married there September 2011. Ive booked the hotel but im still undecided which wedding package to choose (silver or gold) so havent got my wedding day yet. Is the gold package worth the extra money, or should i just go for the silver and add extras?

              Thanks

              Natalie
              Okay, so I didn't even know The Knot had a guide to DW's!

                Hi girls, I am waiting to do my final wedding review until I get my pro pics back, but wanted to post my flower pictures for everyone. I googled a lot of flowers and also used the sticky note link regarding what flowers were in season in Mexico. I was very happy with the flowers; they were a superb quality and for the cost, I thought a great deal!

                Bridal bouquet:
                Orange & Pink lilies & roses - $50 additional (b/c size was 16" diameter)
                Click the image to open in full size.

                Bridesmaids Bouquets - $50 for each - yellow, purple, orange & pink lilies and daises (they added tons of yellow roses too which were pretty)
                Click the image to open in full size.

                Centerpieces - $50 each
                Click the image to open in full size.
                Inspiration Picture given was:
                Click the image to open in full size.

                Aisle decor - Tall glass vases of Gladiolas - $43 each - moved from canopy to in front of the DJ table
                Click the image to open in full size.

                Groom boutonniere - $25 - option was shown to us from Lomas in their binder at our pre wedding meeting.
                Click the image to open in full size.

                Sorry I dont have a close up of his flower really - but he loved it and thought it was worth $25. Imagine a guy saying that!! hehe it was cute.

                Hope this helps! I think they did a great job of recreating what I sent them.

Wendy and Amy had good photographers who they flew down, but I don't know how much they paid....
                    So, are you able to use photographers from Mexico?? I thought i read somewhere that it was either use one of the places Azul Sensatori recommends or bring someone from the US?? Or, can you use whoever you want but just have to pay the $500 fee

                      YAY on getting your invitations out!!! Can we see them?

                      I'm with Amy, I have very limited time to finish my To Do's! My big Sam's Club shopping trip is tomorrow, and I'll be spending Thursday and Friday cooking for this thing. I'm so excited, both to go have some fun and for all this to be OOOOOOOOOVER!
