Not tacky at all. I plan on re-using as much as possible!  Any flowers used in the ceremony will definitely be making its way to the reception.  Bouquets, hanging flowers...all of it!  My WC also highly recommended doing this, so I'm sure it wont be a problem with the resort to transfer everything.

I totally understand.  It took my FI a long time to get it together but i just kept leaving the sites up on the computer and eventually after he saw my bridesmaids were done he got on the ball.  It all works out just don't stress.  Our groomsmen are wearing yellow linen shirts and white linen pants.  My FI is wearing a white linen suit with the same yellow shirt as the groomsmen.  It looks really nice.  FI even bought the pants.  We purchased them from www.islandimporter.com  We had to do custom orders cuz his groomsmen are pretty tall. great service and received items sooner than expectedcheesy.gifQuote:

FI is wearing a white linen suit that he choose himself. The groomsmen are wearing Volcom shirts and shorts (again FI choice- although I had to bug him a little to order them in the summer, before the summer clothes were gone)

Q for you ladies, does your ring get really big in the winter?  Mine is spinning around my finger a lot.  I'm wondering if it needs to be sized down again, or if it's just the winter season.  I'm guessing winter???

Yes, mine is bigger in the winter and smaller in the summer.  Its ok if it swings around a little, but if you shake your hand really hard and it starts to come over your knuckle (or any chance of losing it) you should get it sized.  Then in the summer time it should be difficult to get on, but be comfortable around your finger.

 

I used to work in jewelry so I have this whole sizing thing down to a T!  :)

My guests are calling me because my weekend is sold out.  I only have 16 people booked, plus us.  I TOLD them 2 months ago to book their rooms, get on a payment plan if you need too, etc.  Now I'm stressed because so many people will not be there.  If anyone getting married that weekend has any left over blocked rooms please let me know.

I am ordering tall glass vases to double as my isle runners during the ceremony and then table toppers at the reception.  Gazebo flowers will also be transferred too!

Anywhoo sharing the tiffany runners and sashes is a fabulous idea! Let me know....


 



Our groomsmen are wearing tommy bahama shirts and custom made pants.  My groom will be wearing a custom suit for the ceremony then he is changing into the matching tommy bahama shirt for the afterparty.  Just simple white/creamy coloured linen shirts.

I wish I nudged my FI more - all the suits will be done in the nick of time for the wedding next month.  Hopefully wacko.gif

I guess I shouldn't worry - I gave up on my original wedding dress when I went for a fitting a couple weeks ago!  I will never buy from a sample sale again!  Fortunately a local wedding shop still carried the designer I love and I found "the dress".  I got so lucky!  It too will be ready right before we leave...

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
