    Rachelle, you looked beautiful.

    I would be afraid the sparklers might distract the guests from your first dance, what about when you cut the cake?

          I know what you mean! My friend gave me a dance video (for weddings) and we still have yet to watch it!! Hopefully we'll be fine!

          I think we are going to use the sparklers right when dinner finishes as we make our way to do our first dance. Juan will still be there to get some pics and then it will be a way to get everyone up and start dancing right after we finish our dance!

            That sounds like a great plan....the sparklers will burn down a little as you're walking to do your dance and then everyone will still be gathered around when you're done. I like it!

            Ooh! One more thing I thought of...at my reception site, they required us to have somewhere for people to dispose of their sparklers. We did cute little flower pots filled w/ sand...almost like an ashtray I guess. Anyway, it was a safe place for people to get rid of their sparklers and not risk any stray embers or sparks getting on things.

            Your reception site may already have this taken care of. But I just thought of it.

                Thanks!! I loved my dress too! lol! It was a Casablanca. . .I got it at Lulu's in Dallas (on Routh I think). They are awesome there...whenever you start looking, I totally reccomend them! They seem to have a pretty good variety of dresses/designers and price ranges...esp if you're not particularly looking to spend like 5k on it! ;-)

                  Ooooh, good to know - thanks for the tip!

                  Is Lulu's a vintage store...? It seems like I've heard that name before... or maybe I'm just thinking of Lulabee's Antiques...

                    Lulu's is just a normal bridal store. But it is in a cute little old house! It's right next to a gorgeous antique shop....also in a cute old house. So it looks vintage but they carry all the normal designers that you'd want to see at a bridal shop.

                    They also have a sister store up in Plano called Stardust - it's a little more high end (the whole West Plano thing) I think their dresses start at 1500-2000 and go way up from there. My dress at Lulu's was like $750 or so? And I think they go up to 3-4k at the highest. But Stardust is also very nice - and since it's closer to where I live (and like 5 mins from where I work), they let me have my alterations done there. very helpful!

                    Here's their website:
                    StarDust Celebrations

                      Awesome, thanks so much! I'll have to remember that whenever the planning gets going.
