Meghan,

that's exactly where I went. But it's not just any stitch it. It was to be stitch it and embroider place. They only have 1 in Montreal. But they have millions of just stitch it

 

They aren't charging much either, just for 'I love you mom' will be about $10 or less.

Erin,

Really, you don't think the flowers it self looks tacky?

 

So instead of the clear beads, in your mind just sand?!

I'll try that, I have sand I bought from walmart for my own centerpiece on my coffee table.

 

I'll let you know how it works with pics! Thanks so much!!

Tracy I think Erin had the right idea with the sand - I like that already! What about waiting until you're down there and getting some sea shells to add as well maybe?

 

Oh yah and are the flowers from your bouquets or can they be separated? It is tricky to tell what the flowers are like from pictures (because you're worried they look tacky) but maybe you could put a single flower in the sand and angle it off to the side with a candle in the top of the sand as well? Just have to be careful that you're not going to set the flower on fire LOL! But if they're your bouquets then that won't work anyways - I'm just brainstorming!

Tracy, I like the sand, too!

 

What if, based on your original idea to change it, you had sand, then a top layer that's a mixture of shells and clear beads, then a candle? (no flowers)

 

Another idea might be to have the flowers sit flush with the top of the vase instead of sticking out above it. You could cut off the stems so that the flowers are resting on the top. The inside could have clear beads/shells in the bottom with water all the way up to the top?

 

Dunno, also just brainstorming...

They aren't the bridesmaid bouquet, so I am free to do whatever to them

 

I've tied them with floral tape, which always can be removed.

Meghan, like your idea, I would actually get the LCD candle (they are so much lighter) so I would have to worry about the flower catching on fire.

 

I also really like your idea taylorwd I will try both and produce some pics and see what you guys think.

I really appreciate you guys helping me so much!!!!

 

They are short enough to hit the bottom of the vase, so the flowers are againts the top rim just like you said. I just didn't get it far enough before putting the sand in.

 

So here is Meghan's idea. I actually like it. The thing is with each stem there is 3 buds of flowers.So the yellow one has all three of them. The orange I pulled apart so it's just 1 bud.

I will do the other idea a little bit later. My problem is I start doing 1 thing, then I see something else to do, so i go do that, next thing you know I'm in the middle of doing 5 different things, so none of it actually gets done!!!! It's truly drive me mad.

I can either keep this colour of candle (matches blue, but it's a real one, I can see the flower catching on fire, so if I went this route, it'll probably the tall white LCD candle)

this is what it'd look like if it was just water (I don't have the clear beeds made yet, but i put the purple ones it, just changed my water to purple lol) I cut them to short if it'd be water, they don't hit the bottom, but the sit nicely on the rim.

and this is just the trail one ,the real colour was the yellow and one orange in the middle.

tracy i definitely think that looks better! my only concern would be whether the flame from the candle would mess with the flower at all. i'm tempted to say either flower or candle, but not both? if you want the extra pop of color from the flowers though, absolutely keep them!

I def wouldn't put a real candle, they'd be the LCD light, with the fake flicker. So in that case since it would be safe, do you think I should keep the 1 (yellow or orange) flowr and the LCD candle?

I think for the candle on top I was thinking more of a tea light?!?! You could partially bury it in the sand so that the cheap metal edge isn't showing either. I guess that's why in my head there wasn't as much of a problem with the flower catching! LOL!

But if you're thinking of doing the little LCD lights then it would work out alright too, and you could even add two depending on how close they are to each other.... they would also light up your flowers from the bottom a little bit which might look neat in the dark??

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
