    Lindsey,

     

    I just found out why i couldnt quote you to talk to you...lol...i wasnt logged in haha was a newbie i am.

     

    Anyway...i watched all your youtube clips!! and omg you are an angel for doing that!! I felt like i was there and you were asking what i wanted to know...especially about the chairs when you guys were standing at the Gazebo....I was thinking..."what about them wooden looking chairs!?" and then you asked it haha.

     

    My fiancee and i are so grateful you did that cuz it really gives you a better feel of the property.  I am now just starting to get excited...i have been plagued with stress since Jan 1st...when i realized it was now 2012 lol....and then after a month of stress i realized how stupid it is to stress so hard...theres no point in planning for your goal if you arent going to enjoy the ride and remember to have fun.

     

    Your clips put alot of nerves to rest honestly.  Thank you so so much.

    We went down and video taped our tour.  If you missed it, check it out here:

      Another question:

      Anyone have ideas for DIY centerpieces?

      I want to bring all the components for centerpieces with me but I don't want to bring any glass in my carry-on......i'm thinking acrylic vases? but i want floating candles in them and i'm afraid that is not safe.

      what is everyone else working on that does not include glass?

            You're so welcome!!  That's exactly why we did it!  We wanted to help other couples out since we were so fortunate to be able to see it.  I love the white garden chairs!  I told her I had no interest the banquet chairs!  I decided on a destination wedding because I am naturally a stressed out person, lol.  I didn't want to stress over a big crazy at home wedding.  I feel like July can't come fast enough!!!

              Thanks! I will have to look into that site.  Is the $3.99 with your logo included?  My fiance found them on ebay and has talked to the guy but we haven't ordered them yet.  We are going to put our own logo stickers on it but I know the company on ebay does imprinting also and it might be cheaper than $3.99.  Here it is if anyone wants to check them out.

They have several styles and colors, and I think that $3.99 a piece is reasonable for what it is, but that would be too spendy if we had more guests (we only need 25.) We're also ordering coozies, those are only a buck a piece. I haven't found cheaper, please share if you know of a better deal somewhere online! I tried to go through a local printer too but that was going to be much more expensive, since our quantity was so low. Where else have other brides found good "promo" items for their big day?

                Thank you! I will definitely look into that.  They look so great and are probably a lot cheaper!

                These are them and when I got them in person I was even more thrilled!  Some of them even feel real.

                 

                One thing I don't like though, is someone in the shop smokes...so they had a faint cigarette smell when I got them.  It is gone now because I am keeping them in vases in their case with candles to freshen the sent.  I think the smell will fully disappear before the wedding if it hasn't already.  And I am thrilled with my flowers so I am satisfied!

                 

                I will say they resort quoted me an outrageous price for orchids too and I really wanted a tropical feel.  I am happy with me decision.

                  Does someone have a PDF for the blessing ceremony?  Our wedding is 14 days away and Eva still can't seem to return an email to save her life.  If so please email it to me.  extremedj@extreme-djs.com.  Thank you in advance!
