    Just an update to my previous post. I'm not using Peggy Russell as my officiant nor for anything else. I'm using Sue Hyde who has been very responsive and has sent over some great vows that I have to go through. Or maybe I will just do my own.

    Centerpieces are still a work in progress. After a quote from a florist I've decided to diy them. I'm definitely going to use a trio cylindrical vases on each table (picked up the trio for an awesome price). One vase will have key limes in water (I love me some key lime pie!), a green orchid stem submerged in water (probably a silk one because in the water it looks real!), and third one will have something else probably an orange or fuschia orchid submerged in water. All three vases will have floating ivory candles. I'll place votive candles around the vases and gems on the fuschia tablecloths. That's it so far.

    Amanda,
    I have not seen that bouquet you're ref. to, but I've purchased a starfish bouquet jewel that I will insert in my bouquet. I have no idea what the bouquet will look like other than it will have orange amazon roses, some fuschia flowers and green orchids with the stems wrapped with ivory material and some baroque pearls.
    Are you using both John Hunter and Julie?

    Good luck all! It's getting close for some of us!

      I'm thinking my cake will be chocolate buttercream frosting with 3 layers. two layers will have white cake and key lime mousse and one layer will have yellow cake and strawberries and cream. I will have lime green ribbon around the cake (I think) with white chocolate starfish. Still thinking about the chocolate part.

        I am hopefully using Julie. I talked to her for a hour today and absolutely love her! She did give me a name of a new florist in Key West named Peter Bek. His number is 305-613-1582. She said he is great and good with individual attention. She also said Mama's Flowers are great too. She raved about Key West Cakes (I think that was what was originally mentioned in this thread). She of course is very professional and didn't say anything negative about anyone else. She also mentioned Sue Hyde. Do you happen to have her phone number? She didn't have it on her.

            That's awesome you were able to talk to Julie. She is so chill! I love her style and think she is going to be awesome. She referred me to Susan Hyde, I can't find her phone number, but her is her email marryingsue@aol.com. She is super nice and Julie told me she likes working with her. Joey and Paulie were great when we had our cake tasting. I think I might have the colors worked out, just took a pic of the almost finished centerpiece and so far so good. I will look into the florist she recommended. Mama's florist gave us the best quote for our bamboo canopy. My inspiration is from this website New Page 1. Click on the Hyatt Key West wedding and check out the bamboo canopy at the beginning of the video.
            Also, I'm using Jim Cooper from Soundwaves for my dj, and Bongo D for my steel drummer for the reception and cocktail portion.

            Glad you like the colors. I'm still trying to figure the stuff out..arghhh.

            Oh, I am also going to use the Key West Colors book as my guest book. I saw that in the video link from above.

            Good luck gals!

              Oh, forgot to mention. Ava said all I have to do is ship my diy stuff down to KW and show her how to do one of the tables and they would handle the rest. AWESOME! I'm thinking of doing small and large paper lanterns and the crew will put them up for me..whew whew!
