I just don't want to wait last minute to buy favors and put together goody bags for the guests. How soon did you ladies start these tasks? And did you just over buy and then sell whatever you had left over? I need to strategize! :)

    I am not the bridezilla type that stresses about all of the minor details, but I am afraid that if I wait too long,I will become her! (nothing wrong with her-but not just me)

    And, I don't know if I can wait two more months for an onsite coordinator to get in touch with me! I want to know details now :)



    I am a little less than 4 months away. My invitations will be going out by the end of March to early April. We hope to get a def. response by May 15thish. We know who is going already by keeping track of the booking process, the unknowns is what we are going to wait for.

    I am stressing a little.. I am writing down questions and sending them to my WC every now and then.

    My Welcome bags-My fiance and I will be screen printing them soon. Probably right after the invitations go out!

    I am still trying to decide on decor and on entertainment.
    OH and a place for my honeymoon!

    Good luck to you!

      Hello ladies,

      Last week I sent a word doc with EVERY detail broken down in catgories with all my questions listed beneath. I got back a response from Lily color coded and everything....but now I have a couple questions for those who have already completed their weddings.

      I was told I would have to have a family member decorate our recption tables (if I wanted flower petals/candles that I brought put out on them). Did anyone else have to do this or was it done for you? I am not paying the decorating company to come in....just wanted the extra petals and some tea lights spread around.

      Also, along the same lines, I was told I would have to have a family member/bridesmaid put the sashes on the chairs in the chapel ahead of time. I suppose I figured I would give the sashes to the wedding coordinator and it would just be done. Am I assuming too much?

      Thank you for your advice in advance. :)

        One more thing....she made a note that the carpet to the Tucan Gazeba was light brown. In all the pictures I have seen it shows red. I don't care either way, but I am a little concerned that we are both confused. I clearly wrote (Tucan Gazebo 1pm Confirmed via email) and she cleary wrote back (Si) in red. Hmmmm...

          Janelley100- How funny I had the same exact questions as you about adding some decor- pedals, and LED lights and Sashes and my WC said I would need my family to do that.. honestly it kind of annoyed me. Bc they are over pricing things, and to just add a few details they can't arrange that?

          I think I am just going to have the company do the sashes on my chairs, but only the ones that are bordering the isle. Online I found the sashes for .75 a piece, but to go through the aggravation and having my family and guests put it together I think is just crazy.

            Hi Guys- I am not much help with the seats or petals. I didn't do private and I went on the cheap side and didn't do any of it, but at the dinner they staff put out my rose petals.

I kept telling him to pose like he's on GQ!! Hahahahhahahahaha! I think it fits him perfectly. We ordered the length a little long so we could have them cuffed (they're just folded up in the picture to see what it will look like)
                It looks like it has a hint of peach under certain indoor lights but outdoors it is a nice light tan/sand color. The color we ordered was beige linen. Oh, and the quality is fantastic! I will definitely be ordering another. We got his suit and a pair of pants for my step-son also. We'll be ordering the groomsman pants asap also. It took exactly 3 weeks for us to get them in.
                You are the best for posting pics and details. we are definitely ordering one now!

                  that is so lame that they would make you but on the petals and bows yourself. that must be a new thing because older MP reviews mention "i dropped off my chair bows and decor to the WC....." always implying that they did it for you. ugh

                    I dropped off all of my stuff in the WC office and they set up everything for me. When I'm done with my review I'll post pics. I thought they did a good job.
