    Bee- thanks so much for answering all of the questions. I didn't see the pictures of the exact vases you were bringing but I think I have an idea. My vases are just plain cylinders about 9 inches tall. There are a lot of people traveling with us so I figure someone will have an empty arm to grab an extra carry on bag.

     

    Wow I can't believe that we are only about 7 weeks away. Now that my shower and bachlorette parties are done, I need to sit down this weekend and create a plan of attack for the remaining things that I need to work on, yippy.

I'm expecting about 100 people and I don't know how much to order.


      OOppss...sorry I missed that question. Umm I dont remember exactly but Im pretty sure I ordered 2 extra pounds of cake. We were 40 people in total and only a few of them had any cake. Not even hubby or I had any cake (except for that little whip cream we tasted for the picture lol) There is so much food and drinks that people are pretty full to have any cake. To be honest, the cake wasnt that good...it was very dry inside.

      Taking my vases in people's carry on was not an issue for me eiher as we were 40 people in total and I only had 5 vases; the problem was that the airlines wont let you in the aircraft with glass (unless you put it in checked luggage) as they consider that it can be used as a weapon. They say you can take the risk at the gates, but its pretty much a no. So I decided to take the chance of bringing them in my checked luggage rather than have them taken away. Guess that didnt work out too well lol

      But Im thinking that 9 inches isnt so tall...if you wrap them well in bubble wrap and then pack them well amongst all your clothing, im pretty sure they sould be fine. My centerpieces were about 22 inches and had a top and a round base ;(

        oh wow, your vases where large. I need to find out what the rules are on Jetblue for such a thing, need to get the TA on it. Thanks for that tip Bee. Maybe I will try this weekend to wrap up the vases and see how well they might lay in the suitcase. One more worry added to the list

          Thanks for all your replies Bee!

           

          I have one more question. Did you give a ceremony script to Elke, or did you just tweak the standard one a bit? The ceremony I want is nothing like the script Yanna emailed me, and I worry that it will be too much for her. It only takes about 5 minutes to read, but some people sound awful reading out loud if they don't know the passage already.

           

          How did you work this?

           

           

          Oh, also, do you have any idea how much your dad tipped her? I don't want to be insulting, but I don't want to go way overboard either.

            I had my own ceremony script (never even seen the resort one) and it was about 20 minutes long. She did an amazing job! I sent it to her ahead of time. When I met with her, she had it already printed out and she circled certain words she did not understand so she could go over them with me and then she wrote it down the way they were supposed to be pronounced. 

             

            I believe my dad tipped her about $60 USD. I would have tipped her more but I also wanted others to be tipped such as Yanna, trio band, waiters at the reception, etc.

              I love this site!! You are all so helpful. Where do I get a wedding script from??? I am still undecided what decs to take with me but I was worried about glass so I bought some metal lanterns, hope they don't get squashed! Really need to start making a list, just so mind boggling trying to decide on anything. It's a good job my MOH is a fantastic planner:0).

               

              Thanks agaiin for the great help.....

                 I had actually called my airline (Sunwing) and when I spoke to the lady there, she said that having the glass vases in carry-ons would be ok with the airline and security. Then my father-in-law freaked me out when he said that she must have been wrong as glass can be used as a potential weapon. So I called the airline AGAIN and this time I was told that I could not have glass in my carry on as they could be used as weapons lol....

                So I guess make sure your TA double/triple checks with Jetblue; maybe you can also call yourself as well just to be safe. Good luck :)

                    When you said you rented out the deck.. you didn't opt for the inside of the SSG? Was the outside deck a different price??
