CarrieA,

 

Your pictures are beautiful, I am glad to see everything turned out well.  Quick question, where did you get the rose balls located on the chairs for the ceremony?  Where you able to purchase them there or did you bring them with you.  Simple yet very elegant, I love how it turned out.

Hi CarrieA,

 

Thanks for posting the pictures - your decor looks very elegant, great job!  I have a question about the vases: could you please tell me how tall they are and what color / shape they are?  I'd really appreciate it.

Yes, it is extra if you want to have one. However, I did a reception lunch the day before at the seaside grill (and it was free). I told Yanna and she had them make arrangements (we had to be there right at noon). The service was great and we had the entire room to ourselves. I had wanted to have a dinner, but I actually got word that some of my quests who were on a short trip wanted to try the restaurants at night, so it worked out.

 

One other thing I wanted to note for you ladies. We brought about 30 different sized vases (3 sizes  X 10 vases) with us to the DR. Because it was such a hassle to transport, we told Yanna that they could keep them at the resort for future weddings.We also left the sashes (shown in the attached pictures) as well.

 

That's all for now... we had the best time and couldn't have been happier. Once I get some more time I will write a full review.

Hi-

 

Ok, some answers to your questions:

 

Sashes- we ordered them from weddinglinensdirect.com- very affordable and I thought they looked really nice.

 

Kissing Balls- we actually ordered off of ebay. They are still listed at: http://cgi.ebay.com/10X-White-Silk-Flowers-Kissing-Ball-Wedding-Decorations-/180527896962?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a084d1982 There are different colors to choose from. Also, we bought some ribbons from a craft store to spruce them up a bit. Unfortunately, we were one short on each side but I didn't notice until I saw the pictures!

 

Vases- The vases are not that big. The largest is 4" by 12" and the other two are smaller versions of the same vase. We put candles in the small ones and actually put the bridesmaids bouquets in the 4 X 12 vases.

 

I think that's all the questions for now:)

 

Good Luck!

Carrie
