I'll try to help the best I can by sharing my experience.
I got my chair sashes from Weddinglinensdirect.com. I spent about $40-50 total with S&H. I thought about getting overlays or runners also, but just didn't find it necessary. i might get some fake petals or beads to sprinkle on the table. still not sure yet.
Shoes. I'll be barefoot for the ceremony and probably for most of the reception too. In case I need something, i got these cute little flip flop/sandals. they are just my style:
hey girls so i have a few questions that i cant seem to get answers too.. maybe you can help..
chair bows: i cant really see paying $5 per bow when i looked on amazon.com and they have them for less than $1 each. Are most of you ordering your own sashes and bringing them down with you ? Is there a fee for them to put them on which basically makes it cost the same amount anyway ? please help
shoes: im having my ceremony on the beach... so im assuming ill be wearing sandals ? I love heels so im getting a pair for the deck reception anyway to wear for a little and for some pics... but is the runway hard enough to wear heels on or should i find really dressy white snadals ?
flowers: how much about are you guys spending on your bridesmaids bouquets ? mine is included in the ultimate package but i dont want to spend a fortune on flowers.. i think i saw in the catalog that bouquets are at least 60$ ea ? is there any way around this ?
spa: does anyone know about how much it will cost for the bridesmaids to get their hair done at the salon ?
centerpieces : i have the pictures of the centerpieces but there aren't prices next to them so I am not sure how much any of them are... are most of you bringing your own or have any idea about how much the cost of the ones in the catalog are ? this is another thing i dont want to spend a fortune on!
I don't want to spend on my destination wedding what I would have spent at home LOL so i am trying to figure out where I don't need to go crazy.. any help with any of these questions would be very helpful!
