      Also, how much it cost for an extra tier on the cake?

        Re: save-on-crafts.com - my dress has a layer of feathers at the bottom, so I decided to make my bouquets out of feathers as well (and save some money on flowers in the process!)

         

        The feathers from save-on-crafts are beautiful - great quality and they shipped quickly.  Definitely recommend!

        OMG! Ladies, I came across this site and it seems to be a one stop shop for the DIY in you.  I'm excited to have found feathers that i'm thinking of using for my centerpieces instead of flowers.

        HOPE IT HELPS!  HAPPY PLANNING!

          Hi NJ2012,

          I wouldnt worry to much now about flight costs. My wedding is in May and alot of airlines dont even have schedules available. Flights look high but its because its so far off. I am not going to worry about booking a flight until Jan/Feb, unless I see something drop dramatically. A friend of mine had a destination wedding also and said she had same problem- flights are usually high until 3-4 months before.  A few months before her May 2010 wedding, flights dropped from $600 to $350 for direct flight to Dominican Republic. Flights from NY/NJ should be same- max $400.  I would suggest stalking expedia a few months before wedding and booking when you find a good price.

           

          Dont stress!

I'm wondering if I'm making the wrong choice and if i should some how ask for my deposits back if this is possible.

            I spoke with our travel agent and she said kids 12 and under are free. Airfare is not free which I was fine with. I guess it would matter the time you are having your wedding. If it's their busy season then she said kids are not free but the time we are having our wedding is their slow time so kids are free. You may want to check with your travel agent and see what kind of deals they can get you. Plus we have a large group and she's been able to use that as leverage on getting things.

            We were told that 2 and under is free and 3-12 is half priced from an adult.  However, If you hear otherwise PLEASE let us know!

              Hi GCR,

              I asked her this question several times and her final response was if you pay for a room for them it is fine- you can use them or just get day passes. She keeps contradicting herself. If you are persistent she will ok it. Just keep your emails. First she told me I couldnt use outside vendors, then she said I could if they had a room, or if I paid a vendor fee. I am keeping these emails as my proof.

               

              Good luck!

                  I can't believe we leave Sunday the 23rd for DRC.  Our wedding is on the 28th.  I am super excited and so nervous about how everything will work out.  Wish me luck.

                    Dimplesandsuga thanks for the website they have some great decor!!

                    I am having my reception on the deck and want to have lots of candles- does anyone know if votive candles will stay on with the breeze or would it be better to get tall vases for the candles?

                      I was thinking of doing the same thing, myself, for my Oct 2012 wedding and everything I read suggested either tall vases or floralytes/battery operated votive candles. Apparently it can be quite windy and constantly blow out votives. I hope this helps!
