I thought of doing a criss cross layer of blue as well .. i'll just have to play around with it. FI says it looks like a blue candy cane right now lol!!! and yes, the orchids came with the blue rhinestones on them. I'm hoping they'll add that extra little sparkle when out in the sun near the water.  I'm hoping for a sunny day this weekend so I can get some better pictures that really show the true colours. :)

Oh so I ended up buying some luggage tag loops last night!  I found some turquoise ones (sweet!) but... had to buy a box of 100!

 

Any one here interested in turquoise luggage tag loops??? Once I finish up my tags, the remainder (approx 72) will be up for sale! :)

Laura - I LOVE your bouquets!  Very nice job on them!!!!  You are making me wonder if I should add some more flowers to the ones I'm going to make (for the MOH and BMs in the wedding).  I only have orange gerbera daisies (six for each bouquet)...Hmm... 

 

 

So, I wanted to share with you ladies...  FI absolutely shocked me last night.  We were on our way home (we bowl in a league on Tuesday nights...it's like our "date night"), and he says to me, "You know, our numbers are lopsided right now....  with you brother not going to Mexico.  Do you think I should ask Steve to be in the wedding?"  Now, Steve is a good friend, because he is my MOH's husband.  We hang out with them more than anyone else really...  My only worry is, what if he does, and Steve feels like he's just "filling in"?  I told him I was fine with it, but he needed to figure out if that's what he wanted to do.  He didn't say anything else, so this morning when he emailed me about something else, I brought it up and asked what he was thinking and if he was going to ask Steve!

 

I guess even though I don't care that we'd be lopsided, FI does!

Erin - thanks!!! as for # of flowers, this is my bouquet but to give you an idea, I included i think 7 of the gerberas (orignally planned for 5, so i'm glad I bought a dozen!), 3 of the amaryllis (each with 3 blooms and 1 bud) and 5 of the orchids (i actually have 1 leftover!)

 

 

hehe that's funny how both your FI's thought that!

for portion control, you can also use smaller plates.. That helps sometimes.

    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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 :)
