    I've never seen it advertised as one wedding a day, I think its a common misconception .... Beverly told me they usually do 2 weddings a day.

      Did you find out if you can bring your own liquor and mixes to the gazebo?

      Also, wasn't your bouquet included in the free package?

        I can't find the sand frame on the umbra website.  Which Chapters did you see it at?

        Do you use this frame at the actual ceremony or do you put this together at a later date?

        Thanks

            Yup, my flowers were included...

            You can buy the bottles of alcohol and mixes, but she never gave me pricing, told me we would go over it once we got there....by that time I just figured screw it, we were saving enough money having a destination wedding and I really didnt want to have to worry about buying enough bottles, and mixing, etc. .... The good thing about Beverly is that you literally dont make any final decisions until you are there. I sent her in everything before hand and we literally sat down 2 days before the wedding and she asked me everything again and filled out her own forms. So dont feel like you have to make a decision now. Wait til you get there and check things out....

                Are you in Canada?  I haven't seen the ether frame on the Umbra site in months, but I got mine at Urbane.com - it's a Canadian only site - not sure where you are, but if in Canada they still have them...

                  I've seen them at Party Packagers. They have a whole section of hawaiian themed party supplies, including palm trees, coconut drinking cups, candles etc...I'm thinking of the same thing for a home reception! Dollarama also has big baskets of shells, for $2!

                    thanks for all the feedback, lots to consider and look into..... just confirmed my date this week for October 25 2011!! we're having it at 1pm, so i'm pretty excited, but pretty stressed too! i've read so many of you saying not to stress don't worry it all gets worked out when you get there, but oh i'm still stressing.  i feel like i have sooooo many questions to ask, but i can't get it together to think of what they actually are... i am also lookiong into merrick cousley for our photographer and his work looks so amazing and i was totally shocked at his prices!! they are so reasonable! anyways keep the info coming ladies and maybe i'll figure out the answers to the questions i can't think of by reading this!!!!

                      Hey Kerlitz,
                      I finally got a quote from Jan's Flowers and will be making that deposit today but have already made a deposit for Merrick Cousley. I thought it would be simple to show up at the bank with the account numbers he gave me and just wire the money but there's a pile of other information (inclding his personal address) and well as paperwork to make it go through at the bank so I ended up using PayPal and saving money compared to the bank fees!
