    thanks girls..

    lizz- no chandlyn hasnt told me when a date when i had to book, but i think i will go with Futuremrsbutler and book the mammeebay.. (great idea thanks girl..)

    This destination wedding thing can be so frustrating at times.. I guess maybe i am worrying too much.. i know that u are suppose to be carefree but Im not! :) i am addicted to the style channel, and am constantly watching all of the wedding shows to get ideas.. I want soo much that i know i cant have..

    1st of all like u futuremrs butler, we are also on a tight budget. I have already spent way more than i anticipated..

    I am just about done with my oot bags.. i know u guys have discussed this already so please forgive me.. in my bag im gonna put a personalized hand towel with me and my fh name.. i found hot pink and lime green bath scrunchies from walmart.. (those are my colors) i got the mini flip flop playing cards from oriental trading, packets of tylenol, candles in the tin cans and i will probably throw some candy in there..(midnight snack) i really wanted to get some off wipes for the insects.. any ideas where i might be able to get them wholesale? i hear the mosquitos are big out there..

        When I started planning my DW, I thought it would be easy too! I guess it can be, but most of us here on the forum are a little nutso about things, so we're making it harder on ourselves...lol!
        I wish I could do so much more than I am, but I also have to think about the expense and also about how to transport everything down there.
        Your OOT bags sound great! My colors are pink and green too:)
        I haven't found any place to get the insect wipes cheaply yet, I've been looking as well.

          I'm really no good at making logos, Heidi helped me with mine!

          No, you're not crazy at all, I'm sure you could bring down linens and ask Chandlyn if they have other glasses. I'm bringing pink and green picture frames for my table numbers and pink and green tealights for the table (bought all of this at Ikea...very inexpensive!). I am pretty sure that the Plantation has all white linens, so I'm not too concerned about colors clashing there.

            Another pink & green wedding here!!!

            We bought frames at IKEA and are making these http://bestdestinati....terpeice.html; and we also bought pink and green candles from IKEA.

            Mammee Bay linens are all white...there's a great picture SOMEWHERE of the setup, but I have no idea where I saw it! I'll keep my eyes open. Also, the set up for reception dinner @ Mammee Bay is one LLOOOONNNNNGGGGG table. I asked Chandlyn if we can separate it into smaller tables, she said it would depend on how full the resort is when we're there, so that's a 'play it by ear' call.

            Oh, and I can help with logo if you need it - just PM me names, colors, dates, anything you want (palm tree/starfish/etc) and if you have a preferred shape (circle/square/triangle/etc).

                    It was a thread on the forum...maybe a search would bring it up??

                      They were (good memory!), but when my BMs picked out pink dresses that they loved, I changed my colors to match:)

                      I've been meaning to ask you....would you mind redoing my logo if I sent you some ideas via email?
