      Agreed on all points!

      I really like the last picture

        LOL Meghan. I think 1 orange at 1 table, a yellow at another, so forth...

        I had really liked the orange one too!!! but when I went to go back.. there is no more orange flowers. So I had to change bouquet colours again. I had enough to add 1 in every centerpiece. But that's it, so sadly I wouldn't be able to have the orange one. but I could stick the yellow (1 orange) bouquet in water... mmm.... I'll play around a little after dinner with them, and take pics of my fav and get all of you finally opinion, and I wont bother you all with it again!! lol .

        I wanted to add, Michele
        How much you made me laugh with your facial expressions when you were opening all of those 'kinky' gifts. I'm still laughing.
        All very nice gifts!! Your too funny!!!!

          That would be very pretty!

            You might hate me for this, but my idea would be:

            Put some beachy looking rocks in the bottom to line it- just a small layer (you can probably find brown pebbles/ stones at micheals)
            fill with water
            float two or three small floating candles on top
            keep the surrounding shell candles
            don't bother with the flowers

            Just my two cents, though.

            ETA- I also like the idea of the candle, sand, and single flower, too.
            Loving married life!

              Well, I'm off work from now on! Hurray! I managed to leave before 5 and have all my ducks in a row, so I won't have to work extra tonight! Maybe I'll be able to follow this thread tomorrow, instead of coming to tons of post & pics...

              I have a few things left to do in the next 2 days:

              - shopping: sundresses again, nice underwear for the ceremony
              - buy more sunscreen
              - pick up prescription meds
              - buy some "fashion tape". Even with the added padding in my dress, it will be better if I tape the middle of the decolletage to my skin.
              - get some socks for FH, to wear at dinner with his shoes
              - buy 2-3 things for make-up
              - waxing tomorrow morning
              - haircut & colour appointment tomorrow for me! Nice relaxing afternoon.
              - spa afternoon Friday. My MIL gave me a package including 1.5h massage, mani, facial. What a good day to use this!
              - do most the packing tonight

              I think those 2 days will be quite busy, if you add the fact that I have to drop and pick-up FI to work both days, since we only have one car. Still very fun, and the weather is great, sunny and temps much higher than normal, almost like summer!

                  Hi everyone!
                  You all are so sweet for thinking of the girl whose legal day was last friday (3/26)- that was ME! We went to City Hall, the Mayor performed a lovely ceremony and we exchanged rings, said sweet words, then kissed! Our parents came into town to join us. Then we all went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. It was fun!
                  The next day we went to my parents house in Columbus to open the wedding gifts that had been sent there (hey, we're legally married!) and my bridal shower was on Sunday.
                  I've been working since I got back to Cinci so I haven't been able to get online much, sorry for the late update!

                  Overall, I thought the legal day was fun, but the bridal shower was stressfull. Mine was just lunch and gift opening... aaawkward. Would have been better if there were some activities/games planned. Use that info for your own showers, plan your own activities if you have to!

                    Your list seems very manageable!! that's great, looks like your right on track!! you reminded me to put 'get refills' on my list of things to do, so thank you very much!!

                    Kim,
                    Congratulations!!!!!!! It must feel darn good after all the work. Now for the fun part to come, your vaca and beautiful ceremony!!!
                    Ohhh cheese cake factory, We don't have that here, been one in FL.. so darn good!!!
                    I'm so glad you guys had a great day. Altho I am def sorry to hear the girls couldn't make a game (IT'S A BRIDAL SHOWER, THERE'S GOT TO BE A GAME OR TWO!!!) I can't imagine how awkward it must have been. At least it's over now lol.
                    Congrats again,MRS!!!

                    Mel,
                    I love your idea, but my original idea was the floating candles, they didn't work out for me. Plus our dinner is most likely going to be out side, where I know there will be wind, they wont last. Plus it'd take me more candles = more luggage weight. Thanks so much tho!

                    I also can't do the bouquet in water, as the bouquet is tied with floral tape, and it just tore the bouquet apart

                    So I'm left with the 1 flower and sand with the LCD light which I really like. Simple but fun and carribeanny (I know it's not a word, but you know what I mean)
                    Here is the final out come.

                      Oh- I like this set up with the smaller candle! It seemed like too much with the larger one you had earlier but I really like the little one! The shells are a nice touch, too. This is the way to go, I think, Tracy. You're right about wind and candles not mixing and I'd never even thought about the weight. That is looking good!
                      Loving married life!
