    Karla amazing review! I found it very interesting that you didn't use flowers. I can't wait to see pics of what that looks like. The Westin and the One & Only sound amazing. I feel like leaving tomorrow. LOL. I am sooooooo glad that the pashminas were a hit! Its always nerve racking to buy something for someone and not know whether they are going to like it or not. But luckily your guests got use out of them. Juan better hurry up with the pics!

            Since I got the pashminas from Glenda, I had no problems. I got turquoise pashminas I ended up having to buy extra pashminas from a different source because I did not have enough. So they did not match the rest. But it was no biggy.

            All of the ladies used the pashminas during the reception. And I've seen a lot of my friends after the wedding and they've used them. It was such an appropriate gift because I have a ton of pashminas that everyone knows I use all the time.

              Question regarding your reception decor. You said you brought allot of candles with you.. did you need to rent holders? That's where I'm finding my centerpiece expense to be.

              I'm glad you had such a wonderful time!

              The votives already had glass holders that came with them, so they were not a problem. I had them all over the tables and steps and around the border of the pool. They were really nice. I wish I would have brought more. But, I thought 300 would be plenty...wrong. I guess you can never have too many.

              I brought mirror glass holders to set the pillar candles on. But what I really needed was a glass hurricane. The pillars kept blowing out. But honestly, it was a minor problem. I dont think people payed too much attention. I would have just not brought these. But they looked nice on the table!

                Great review your wedding sounds like heaven. The whole event sounds like a dream. I think your costs were unbelievably low for a wedding of 100 and three spectacular events. I am sure your friends and family will use your wedding as the bar that all weddings are set by. Gonna be kinda hard for anyone to top that. Kudo's to you!!
