      no, I didn't grow up here; been here just about 2 years now. McDevitt is VERY close by; I think it's technically in Wyncote, which is a few miles from me

      *updated: I just mapquested McDevitt....holy crap ~ it's literally right around the corner from my apartment! WEIRD!!!


      and yes, Brittney - we'll have to all meet half-way sometime! MD/VA??

        MomentUs...you said in another thread that you had an extremely organized wedding. Can you go into more detail on this?

          MomentUs - Did you use the flowers, florist and cake that the RIU provided? If so, what did you think of all of it?

            When were you able to decorate for your reception. What all did you use? What kind of favors did you make?

              That's too funny, I thought it was near there.

              Brittney - maybe we could have a BDW weekend in MD/VA sometime, that would be so fun!

              Ok, now...

                My FFIL lives in VA, and we usually go up that way about once a year.

                  MomentUs... Can you give me the contact information for the outside vendors that you used. Your cakes look very pretty!

                    I actually ordered roses which were spray painted pastel colors the night before the wedding and placed in a vase (another activity that the bridal party helped with). The favors I made were frosted votives that were personalized with a chinese love sign since my husband is Chinese and then wrapped in a chinese take out box that was decorated with our wedding colors. (Favors Shown Below)
                    I used tulle to decorate the entrance to the reception and a free arch was provided by the resort and I also purchased lighted flower garlands that would line the tables. We also reused the flowers on the head table that was used to decorate the gazebo. See picture below.
                    The reception hall was actually decorated at 4 pm the day of the wedding, by the workers. We created a layout of all that we wanted them to do and they did it.

                      Thanks for the pictures that you have posted. The pictures are beautiful and it is very helpful. I was wondering if you had any more pictures of your reception. I am having my reception at the plantation and need a better view on how to set it up for our wedding. If you can provide this my email address is shakirakenya@yahoo.com.

                      By the way, I love the favors!
