    Non-breakable vases Where?? And yes, I was wondering how best to bring the vases down too. I'm bringing vases for a sand ceremony with coloured sand. (still trying to figure out how to get it home without mixing) And I'm also thinking about round fish bowls down for centrepieces. I was going to fill them with sand from the beach and throw some shells in on top of the sand and put a little votive in it too.

      Sunandsand, Be careful if you are planning on taking branches from home with you - you may not be able to get them through customs. When we went to the Dominican last year we were not able to take one of the souvenirs home that we bought there because it was unfinished wood. Apparently you can't bring any type of wood like that to another country because there may be bugs in it and cause plague. I know it sounds silly but we found out the hard way and were pretty upset to leave a really cool souvenir at the airport!

        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.

        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.
        hey Sunandsand, I am glad to hear the tablecloths and napkins are included. I was going to try and find that out next. I asked Tiara about the music and dancing and she said if you book the entire restaurant at the 1000.00 price. Basically we can do what we want.
        I saw a bose ipod dock system at costco the other day for 279.00. I thought that was a good price but I am going to look around. I am also going to bring the chair shashes.

        What chairs is everyone getting? The Tiffany chairs or the white wood chairs? If it is only for the 20 minute service I would think the white wood chairs would be fine but I am not sure if they will look nice with the sashes.

          I'm getting wooden chairs.
          Here's an idea I saw on google

          Click the image to open in full size.

          I kind a like this following idea, except instead of just a knot, adding a bow. You would use less material than if you wrapped the material around the whole chair.

          I'm just going to use tulle and I'm going to look into buying a roll of tulle and cut it myself. It will be cheaper that way. Save-on-crafts.com has them (for the US residents on this blog). Since I'm in Canada, I'm going to check Fabricland and some of the discount material stores on Queen St. W. in Toronto (5 minute walk from work).

            Just wanted to let you guys know, Alexander from Seavis just told me that they are now offering a sunset cruise from 6pm-10pm on their catamaran that will sail around the bay. There is an open bar, dance floor and music on board, so now i am thinking of doing this for the rehearsal dinner.

              Hey Jennifer
              Were you carrying the wood out where they could see it or was it in your suitcase when they stopped you? We have a big hockey bag that we carry golf stuff in when we're travelling but this time it might be a branch holder instead.


              Vases - I'm going to ask Tiara if she'll let us have 1 empty vase on each table. Might be even better than bringing our own vases. Also, I'm going to start looking at non-breakable vase options after the holidays (XMas gifts are still not finished)

                oh what the heck ... since I was thinking about it ... here's something from a quick google search, but I'm going to hit up some craft stores after the holidays too

                Discount plastic containers & flower vases - cheap wholesale prices

                  Sunandsand, it was in our suitcase. They randomly opened it and saw it and took it so it's kind of a gamble. Had it been in another suitcase, they may not have taken it!

                    I love these. I was going to buy the sashes but maybe buying a couple of rolls of tulle would be better, cut them the lengths you want, you can be more creative that way. I would be lost without this forum. Soo helpful. Thanks.
