    I doooo recommend bringing fake flowers for your bouquets and boutonnieres.  IT was SOOOOO HOT that my real flowers would've wilted in like a second!  If you want an etsy recommendation, I'd be happy to tell you one!


     Thank you SO much for the information! I really don't want to bring my own for the same reasons you didnt but $100 is kinda steep so I'll have to see if I can fit it in the budget. Would love your recommendation on etsy for flowers.. Thanks again!!

          Hi everyone,

           

          I have asked the DJ ( im using the resorts DJ ) if he could have someone playing the bongo drums ( a percussionist ) and he asked me to ask my coordinator. He said its possible. but they don't provide it. Did anyone do anything like this ? I love the way those drums sound when they go along the music, its a really nice touch . . just wondering if its worth it!?

                I used Alexis Grace Designs on Etsy.  I think it's one word.  I love my flowers and they're on display in my foyer right now!!  They really popped in the pictures too!  Here is my slideshow:  http://200712mcmahon...ephotos.com.mx/

                 

                There you can see how nicely they pop in pictures!

                  Thanks!!  It was VERY HOT....but it was also the middle of July.  Depending when you get married, the seaside grill should be fine.  We also got married on the stillest day of the week!  No breeze at all in the restaurant!  But I still wouldn't change a thing!

                      The bridesmaid dresses are Dessy, I live in Vancouver Canada so you wouldn't be getting them from the same place ( LOL ).

                      They were truly beautiful on each and every girl.................it took the bridesmaids a very long time to find a dress that they all liked.  

                      The color was cotton candy, Dessy was the only bridesmaid line that had that color pink.
