    Oh I'm waiting for a bill when I get there for the emails.....LOL!  Everything has a price for sure.   I will be there in 20 days......OMG....time as flown!  I'm so ready to get this party started!!  Just letting go of all the planning anxiety etc.......trusting in the girls on this forum when they say it will all get done when you get down there!  Took care of what I could from here and the rest I'll deal with when I get down there.....and of course I will have my trusty credit card!!!!  Sounds kinda crazy I know but at this point there really isn't much else you can do about it!!!!!!

      So, we just completely changed our minds about our reception (we were going to do snacks and drinks on a sunset cruise), but now we've decided to go ahead with the "Dreams of Love" package and it totally has me stressing now! With our wedding only seven weeks away, I haven't done a whole lot to prepare (many, many things have contributed to that, none of which are particularly my fault). The thing that has me stressing most right now? Table decor! I have no clue what to do since I hadn't even given it a thought since we were going to do the cruise. (We're still going to do the cruise, but it'll be the night before instead. I'm just a little sad about that because for some reason I was really looking forward to wearing my dress on the catamaran. I couldn't tell you why since I'm sure it'd have been a huge pain shleppin' that thing around...maybe because I think it would have made awesome pictures...)

       

      Okay, so here's the hitch as far as table stuff goes...I DO NOT want to worry about packing anything glass!...nor anything bulky since it's gonna be a tight fit anyway carrying our Welcome Gifts and all our other stuff. So, this is my idea (which, I admit, still needs a lot of work). I was thinking about buying some paper lanterns (super easy to pack) to hang with ribbon from the chairs on the aisles for our ceremony. Do you think there's some way I could use those as the centerpieces? Or would that look completely ridiculous? I was thinking I'd get big ones for the aisle, and then some smaller ones to help with the centerpiece idea. I know I could try it out once I buy the lanterns-do a practice run, so to speak- but I don't want to commit to them until I know they can do double-duty for ceremony AND reception. I'm not exactly rolling in dough or space...What do you guys think? Suggestions?

        Maybe something kinda like this, but I don't totally love this. I think I'd only want to use shades of our aqua blue color. Plus, flower petals wouldn't be a great choice if we end up having our reception outside. As much as I don't want to pack candles, maybe it wouldn't be too bad since we'll only have a few tables anyway. Oh, speaking of...does anyone know how many people sit at a table? Including us, there will be 24 adults and 5 babies. Round or rectangle tables? That might change things!

          Hi Oscar _Ernie -

          You should check out a webpage called SHORECHIC - they have great ideas for your tables.

          The tables sit up to 8people. I believe they are rectangular and can be broken down to a smaller size.

          Good Luck!

              BRIDE1008 - - Accordng to my wedding planner - Jacy will be there for the entire process. You will have a consultation with her when you get there to go over the details and how you would like the order of events to play out.
