Im also upgrading and getting Hydrangeas :) all white for myself with some white roses and greenery, and white hydrangeas for the BMs.  We arent doing bouts or crosages.  I was quoted $100 for mine and $50 each for the BMs so $250 plus tax I assume

It's really simple, but I love the round look and I wanted to keep it pretty classy. The girls have teal/turquoise dresses with lots of bling around the neckline so I wanted something simple :)

 

It's $339 + tax for my bouquet, 2 BM boquets, 6 bouts (FI, 2 GM & Dads & my grandpa), 2 wrist corsages (for the moms) & 2 pin on corsages (for the grandmas)

 

I know tons of you ladies still have some months before your weddings so I promise I'll be back with a full review and be able to answer any questions (and with pictures :)!!). We leave April 23, I'm getting married Apr 28th, and we're staying an extra week for our honeymoon... so come May 7th I'll be back in action here! haha

So apparently there is a store on the premises you can purchase bottles of liquor - that is what I'm going to do for the gazebo as there are only a few of us.

Also, does anyone know if there is any kind of centrepiece on the tables in the restaurant for the dinner?

Thanks

Does anyone know what would be the coolest (weather wise) time of the day to get married - also thinking of photos - don't want it to be too hot. My fiance has a problem with the heat. I love it........

I don't want to have to pack a lot either and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on flowers that would go to waste.  So I am going to make these: http://www.chattybrides.com/index.cfm?postID=1720

 

I am going to buy photo mats and use them as the frames instead of real frames and then print the pictures out on vellum in black and white.  They should pack really easily since they are flat and be light weight.  I'm going to coordinate the pictures with the table names/numbers... haven't totally decided what they will be yet but I was thinking it might be zip codes.  I have little electric tea lights that I am going to put inside instead of hauling down candles and votives.   I also got a great groupon the other week for personalized fortune cookies, so I am going to order them in bright pink to add some color and put one on each persons plate.  I ordered some loose orchids from the florist so they will prob scatter around the table as well.

Great idea mekanabr. I  have been busy with trying to figure out every detail of the wedding, its what I spend every second of my free time on, but centerpieces is one thing that I have even thought about yet!

does anyone know if this is the usual set up with the yellow flowers?  iF SO, I won't have to change anything and probably don't need centrepieces because yellow is my colour theme.  IT has been so difficult to find anything yellow here.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
