    Great idea---I love the leather capri sandals in Metallic Ice from J.Crew...maybe I'll do this as a gift to my girls. Obviously something they can wear later!! THANK YOU! I have no idea why I didn't think to look there!

        Thanks so much for the update! So glad to hear that everything went fairly stress free for you. I think the stress level goes up because we're all so far away and if you're a hands-on type person, you feel a bit out of control. My niece is stressing a bit about the flowers. What sort of arrangements did you have?
        Also, regarding the Barracuda Bar. We're having the rehearsal dinner there as well as the cocktail hour. Is there an additional charge to set up a bar? Sorry to hear about the food at the cocktail hour. The choices didn't really sound all that appealing. Maybe we could ask them to put out some nachos/salsa in addition to the appetizers - just in case.
        Sounds like you have a wonderful wedding - wishing you much happiness!

          Thanks Lyales!! Your wedding review is appreciated so much! One question for you, did they make you pay a one night room rate for your photographer?

          Thanks =)

            My flowers were an assortment of local flowers there were a few gerber daiseys and lots of lilys!! I don't believe there was an extra charge for the bar i just assumed it was included :)

                  Hi Guys,

                  What is the best time to give your attendants their gifts? I have never been a bridesmaid or a bride so I don't have a clue....especially if you arre giving them jewellery or shoes to wear for the day?

                  Thanks,

                  Jen

                    Are you having a rehearsal dinner? If so, then the gifts are usually given out them. If not, and you are planning on getting together for hair and make-up; you can always give them out then. The groom can also give his gifts out to the GM at the rehearsal dinner or when they are getting dressed for the wedding.

                      Thanks Rory,

                      I don't think we'll be doing a rehearsal dinner, and I can give them their gifts while we're getting ready, I'm just concerned that they'll buy shoes and jewellery before we go which will then be extra $$ spent. Thanks for the info though. Do you think that I can give it to them before we leave home to alleviate the problem? Or maybe I should just tell them I'm paying for those things while we're shopping, and then save a little something to give when we're down there. What do you think?
