    That sucks that you can not even just rent the speakers the DJ would use.

    Amy, i love your new picture, its so cute!

      Good news (I think)
      Tiara said she'll allow me bring in my own system for free and not use the P.A.
      I figure I can get good outdoor speakers for the price of what she would want me to pay a dj and I can keep them.

      She said she's not supposed to do that but she'll make an exception so if you ladies are looking for the same thing ... tread lightly.

      So, I guess I'm booking the whole SSG for dinner and dancing! Yay!

        Sunandsand - Way to go! I see you figured out the combination to getting a straight response from Tiara! Number the questions and just allow her to answer in the space following!!

        I'm thrilled that you've decided to go with the SSG as well. I think that the atmosphere is going to be just gorgeous and with the dancing outside you can really party and not worry about a hall getting all stuffy 'cause you'll be outside! I'm not sure how the setup inside the restaurant will go (that's really why I'm headed down there) I want to make sure that it's still fairly cozy and that a few speeches can still be made.

        Dolfinluck - thanks for the idea, a sunset tour sounds beautiful...I'll have to cost it out though, since I find my budget is beginning to run a bit tight!!

        Thanks ladies...you're all awesome!
        Love is a wonderful thing!

          Hi all,
          Seems like alot of planning has happened since I logged on last.
          My biggest concern is with the dance/music part of the reception. I would like to use my ipod too. Hopefully, Tiara will allow all of us to bring our own speakers. I am going to send her an email now and see if I get lucky.

          Wish me luck.

            I believe you should be able to bring your own speakers if you are doing a private reception. If we decided to do a private reception by the pool we are bring down our bose portable speakers but we will have a smaller group. I dont know how well they will for a larger group. But others from the forum have used it and said it was loud enough.

              That's actually something that Dolfinluck and I had been contemplating as well! I think it's a great idea.

              We had looked at the organza chair sashes/runners on this site:
              8x108 Organza Sash - Fuchsia50509(10pcs/pk) (those are just the fuscia ones, I would like a mix of orange and fuscia) Their prices seems pretty good, but if you have any other sites/suggestions that'd be great!

              I like your other ideas as well! I would definitely like to work together to share some decor!

              If you could email me some of your pics that'd be great!

              Ladies:

              I'm not sure if you have thought about doing this but I remembered that you (Dolfinluck, Amy, Bridget) were all using fuscia and orange for your wedding colours. I found these cute fans online...they come in a really nice fuscia, you can put your program on them and maybe add an orange ribbon instead of a wooden handle. Just a thought!

              Wedding Program Fans

              and Amy because you're such a DIYer try this site too!!

                  Hey Maybride, It looks like Tiara's letting me bring my own speakers too. I'm going to start looking into the best ones for this. Good to know that Bose will do the job. I'm going to start pricing them.

                  Also, I asked Tiara about the price of white table cloths and napkins and they are included so the only things I'm thinking of bringing are some chair sashes and possibly centerpieces.

                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  I don't want to pay $70 per table for flowers so I'm going to take some branches and non-breakable vases and probably buy a few flowers from Tiara to add to the centerpieces.

                  BTW, that's not me in the photo.... just found it on another website.

                    Wow that's stunning! Where are you buying your non-breakable vases from? And how is everyone planning on bringing all their stuff down?

                      When we bought our luggage not to long ago we also picked-up a couple of these nautica duffles that fold into them self when empty, if you click on the "click to enlarge photo" they have a picture of it folded down.
