I can post that too if you want...
    The technician who is working the sound system played our songs perfectly (I didn't give them any instruction). If you are getting married on the beach, it isn't a super short walk to the aisle so a good amount of the song plays before you get to the aisle. I'm not sure how it goes with the gazebo. He also faded the songs so that it transitioned nicely.
    So, did you just take an ipod with your songs on it and they plugged it into speakers? Thanks for letting me know because I've been wondering about this. We are doing beach wedding so I'm glad to hear my song will play a while before I get there. I was just invisioning like the 15-30 second walk down the isle and that be it. LOL! Thanks for all your continued help on the forums! It's awesome to have brides who continue to fill us in even though their wedding is over!

        Ladies thanks for the great reviews!!!!!!!!! I cant believe my wedding is 6 months away!! Time flys by soo quickly... Love the songs you have all picked... I still have no idea but I might steal one or two from ya all. Anyway, has anyone used Esty.com for their monogram? I wanted to get a referral so i didnt just use anyone. But I'm looking to incorporate my monogram into invites, and programs so I need to get it ASAP. I tried the lady at Pinkdesigns but she is on maternity leave!

        Does any brides have a picture of what the hanging paper lanterns look like?

        thanks to this forum I am not a CRAZY bride... Thanks all for your help and advice!! :)

          Allison,

          I have about 100-110 guests prob coming so I was thinking of doing the rectangular tables but when I see the round ones lit up underneath I second guess myself... I was going with the fuschia organza or satin chair ties and if i go with the rectangualr table I want to buy the table runner for each but wanted to incorporate the coral in the centerpieces w flowers. i am going to try and use my BM's flowers as the centerpieces for the tables since I have 10. And then buy small candles to surround the CP.

          I am not sure at this point considering I like the idea of 16 people at a table, easier for seating people together.. the round limits us to 8 or 10 I am also trying to buy coral/hot pink paper lanterns.. what are you doing?

            ladies what is your FI and GM wearing?? We bought them white linen pants (calvin klein at marshalls for $30 and nice leather slip on kenneth cole sandals at the outlets for $35 each.. but we are having trouble finding them linen shirts that are white/hot pink striped.. has anyone seen a nice shirt thats not too expensive?? I have only seen them at Express for Men but a few of the guys are pretty massive! lol... as well as my future hubby who is 6 4'

            Any ideas or suggestions would be great! I figured we couldnt do a bold hot pink (guys would never go for it) but the stripes wont be sooo overwhelming for them. lol

            our BM's a re wearing long chiffon Impressions dress Fuschia & flowers will be fuschia w coral

            FI will wear a custom white linen suit... he might go with same shirt or custom shirt with maybe larger stripes?? HELP!!!

              JD Hall - we're using Berman travel - they've been amazing. I highly recommend them!

                I have no idea - I guess I'm leaning towards using the hotel simplly because it'll be easier - but if the quote is outrageous I'll try another avenue.
                How much did she quote you?

May change it but I'm pretty sure that is the line up! :)
                  I looooooove "I've gotta feeling" I think it's perfect!!! But my fiance announced he hates the black eyed peas although thruthfully I don't think he would recognize them if I hadn't told him who it was haha. I might sneak that one in :)

I tried this dress on in the store and fell in love with it but it was too much for my beach wedding and barn AHR (it just wouldn't work)...so I went with another dress (which I love just as much and it's perfect for my settings!) but it's not the "princess" look that I originally fell in love with. So...by searching online, I found a local girl who had the "princess" dress un-altered and brand new in my size for an AMAZING price! I LOVE it! I will now have beautiful pics in both my wedding dresses. I am soooo excited and just had to share! :)
                    Yay! Congrats!! That's so exciting!!! I got my dress in last week - It's so exciting!
                    That's awesome that you found it for a great price!

                      There's a thread on here "Share your etsy finds" - you'll probably be able to find someone there that can suggest a person. I've used etsy quite a bit - loooove it! I got a garter, a hanger that says "Ron heart Casey" (it's an actual heart, not the word hahaha) and a hot pink sash for the reception which is HOT! So if you need any of those things, I'm happy to send you the contact info!
