    Hi soon to be Mrs Dow,

     

    I'm glad you were able to see the pics..Thanks!  Guess I downloaded them right!! lol!  I think they do always do the cake, and everything right after, but I'm sure if you wanted it different that wouldn't be a prob!

      I have read other comments from ladies on the site that Tia is Waaaay more expensive than the other vendors in the area.  My quote was originally for $3000 and I thought that was ridiculous; not to mention they were very unfriendly to deal with!  But I think that price is even worse when it's impossible to take them home and enjoy them after the wedding!  I think I am going to do some checking and see who else is in that area as a vendor. 

       

      sorry...I sound negative...Refresh....Wedding...In Jamaica....Okay...I'm better! 





      You can try checking out floral fantasies for your flowers. I read about them in another post somewhere on here, but I think they were much cheaper than tai. Try searching for a tai floral thread that might be where I saw it. If I find it I'll post it cuz I think there was more than one vendor in that area.

      Also I know their are tons of sellers on etsy that make real touch bouquets and bouts. I saw a cute idea for a bout that was peacock feathers (depends on your wedding colours I guess). I also thought the starfish bouts were cute.

        I bought a TTD dress from le chateau for $20 lol. Not what I would want to walk down the aisle in, but if I'm rolling around in the sand It will work. It's long, and white, see through satin. eek! Might need to get a slip or liner sewn into it.

        That's a great idea to do the TTD the day of your hair trial (if you aren't wearing the dress later on). I'm still torn about changing for the reception. If I do it will definitely be into another white dress. At my friends DW she just changed into a random sun dress and didn't look like I bride at all anymore. I wanna be treated like a bride as long as possible lol.

              Agreed, great idea on the hair trial.  I dont know if I want a TTD pics yet, I still need to find a cheap dress for them if I do!


              I want to be treated like a bride as long as possible too, hahaha, which is why I'm still contemplating to get a second.  I could get a white cocktail type dress, there is a super cute one at BCBG I've been dreaming about for a while, but Im very indecisive!

                And then I read down more and had more to say, hahahaha.  Tiptop is agreat place for suits, I still dont' know if I want my FI to have a suit jacket, or just pants and a shirt.  I guess I need to try them on him to see.  And I tried Le Chateau but he said he woudln't go in there, hahahahaa, so I'll try tiptop I guess!   They do have a really nice Calvin Kline line, so I think we'll try that out.

                  I don't know how "trashed" the dress gets after, but figure I better play it safe and do it the day after...hopefully it doesn't get too "trashed" partying either!  But I totally want to be a bride as long as possible too and I want more than the people down there with us to take note of it! 

                  love reading these posts ladies!  i have 3 months to go and a groom with no suit!!! EEEK!

                  other than that, we're really excited!



                  We got really nice linen suits for the guys at Herbergers...the pants were $30 and the jackets were $98; my FI, his dad and my dad are wearing jackets and the rest of the guys are not; as of yet, we still have to find some nice white shirts though.  We still have to find my FI TTD outfit, too though!  hehehehe  For you ladies doing a TTD shoot, what is your FI wearing??  (Eric can't wear his suit b/c we are having an AHR that he will be wearing it again for.)

                    Same boat as you, but with everyone except me! lol. We're only having a best man so him and my fi are planning to start looking in sept...and my bridesmaids have been looking for over 2 months and we can't find anything...hopefully they all find something soon! lol

                     

                     

                    For those of you not being able to see the pics, i had to click on them to download them because they wouldn't load so maybe try that!
