Any advice ladies? Did any past brides see any weddings on the beach that didn't have the huppah?
Wow sammysgirl you only have a month to go!!!! How freaking exciting. Oh yeah, and packing advice would def be a help!
Hey Staicy! Excited to hear about your site inspection!

if no gazebo, then I think you Must have the chair bows: for about 180 you get the most bang for your buck because of the pop of color.
Also I think the caprice package comes with a bag of petals, you can scatter them along the aisle, or make two straight lines of petals for an impromptu aisle. Each extra bag of petals is only $10, right?
Then I also know they do small arrangements to put along the aisle as well.
Maybe get 5 bags of petals and divide it amongst the guests to throw at you at the end? Would make 4 great pics!
I wouldn't worry about the altar and huppah. The ocean is a beautiful backdrop as it is!
Hope this helped!

If they can't support us in our marriage, I really see no reason to spend time with them. I know it sounds selfish, but there is not one good reason for his parents not to come. At this point I want nothing to do with them. Everything is always on their terms. When I have a baby they will be all over me, but for something that might put them out of their comfort zone a little bit they can't do it. Not even for their son. There are no words to describe how I am feeling right now. I'm really not sure what to do at this point.

At the same time, I don't want to stoop to their level of having such poor sense of self and what is right by not going to the shower. I am a very strong woman, and I won't play nicey nice to them when I see them. So if I do go, they will both get the cold shoulder, because that's what they have given me and it would go against everything I stand for if I acted all fake like it is no big deal....ugh! FML!

However...I'm just like you and I would totally boycott their shower, but that might not be the best idea...

One of the things that upsets me the most is his dad's excuse. His dad isn't going because he's so cheap and selfish, but instead he told sam that the reason he isn't going is because he doesn't believe in not getting married in a church!!! It is such BS! This is coming from a man that is an alcoholic and divorced! Not to say that there is anything wrong with being divorced, but its not exactly like he's the most Godly man.

We had some family issues too, that my side and his side didnt want to stay in the same resort for a week. I could not handle it anymore. So we had a round table conversation with everyone in the family from both sides discussing the problem we had. I hope we solved all of them. We cried, hugged, kissed and started from new page. Now all staying in the same place. So far all good, we had even a big diner all together.
So may be it is an option to tell them how you feel.
Regardless what they will decide, it is one of the most memorable days in your life (second will be your baby) and it will be AMAZING no matter what.

I can't believe the dad made that Church comment, he must be crazy (sorry).
