    Hiya gals-
    I got a quote back from Jacy on the floating orchid idea. The pink orchid is $250US and the green orchid is $50US!!! Too much $$$ for me. Any suggestions on what can go in the tall vases? Help!!!

      Why dont you buy fake orchids from Michaels and put them on top of water. They are plastic so will float I bet.

          I wanna say the dates we were there was June 12-16?? My dad sat at the Cat's ice cream parlor balcony and watched a wedding that was at Dreams while we were there. I find it funny now that we know we will get married there However, I am one of the few who wants a beach ceremony instead of the gazebo.

              Those are pretty what centerpieces do you mean. At your dinner the day of the wedding. I didnt even think about that lol. Will most likely use our flowers I guess. My brother in law /husband of a BM developed shingles and I am stressing over no one in my family catching it.

                We are doing a symbolic ceremony...so it will definitely be short. I didn't even think about having some people stand...I think that would definitely work. Thanks for the suggestion!

                  Hi girls! I wanted to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Jen and I am from NJ. I am officially a DPA bride!!!!! We are getting married January 14, 2011. :)

                  I feel alittle overwhelmed because I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. I have my dress. My bridesmaids have their dresses too, but I feel like I should be doing something more...

                    First off Congratulations. Thats awesome and hehe nope you have lots of time. Good for you for already having your dress and your bridesmaids dress. The resort from the sounds of things takes care of everything pretty much closer to the date. If you really want to do something you can plan an OOT bag and start putting those together. I still have to finish mine, 7 days to go. There are some great threads on them. Whats your honey wearing. I had such a hard time finding something beach casual for mine to wear. Again congrats and welcome to the DPA family.
