I actually don't have many good pics of the candles...hoping to get some as friends and family send me their pics...

Here is an enlarged picture of my bouquet and candle arrangements...I made them...pretty simple....turquoise ribbon with a starfish pinned on one side and paper flowers glued on the other. I also had blue tea light holder with the same turquoise ribbon and paper flowers.

Also, here are our placecards...I put the same paper flowers on them...I think they turned out nicely wink.gif

Lulu- 2 quick questions!

 

1. How did you get the glass centerpieces down there? Did you bring the candles too or get them there?

 

2. Is the flower in your hair fake or from the florist there? Did you order it specifically ahead of time?

 

Thanks hun!

I made the centerpieces so that they could be completely disassembled for transport and assembled again there. I had the ribbon with flowers and the starfish with pin wrapped in paper towel inside the glass holder and then I wrapped everything in tea towels and put them in my luggage that contained all my clothes...for extra padding. Natalia put the centerpieces together for me on the wedding day..no muss, no fuss! I did bring my own candles...gave all that to Natalia too. I just asked her to put sand in glasses and arrange things for me.

The flower in my hair is fake. A friend of mine who got married in Cabo last year suggested I go with the fake because her real hair flower wilted because it was so hot. I looked everywhere for one (and there are quite a few nice ones on etsy.com but I started looking too late and didn't leave myself enough time to get the shipment to me...I'm in Canada and most of the sellers are in the US). Plus, the flowers were pricey. I just went to Michaels and bought several fake flowers on the stem (they were even on sale!). My worry was that I wanted something real looking. I think the roses worked well..I also had one large peony but decided with the 2 roses on the wedding day. I snipped the flower off the stem and just glued an 1.5 inch-long hair clip onto it using a glue gun. I think the whole thing cost something like $10 for 3 hair flowers. It was totally worth it to make my own!

That was a great review! It was nicely detailed and your laid back attitude about the things that weren't perfect made me realize that those situations are what you make of them. There's no need to get upset over the small things. Thanks again!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
