    Have any of you girlies seen the personalized shot glasses anywhere? I'm thinking of getting them as one of the favours. Then get the mini tequila bottles when we're out there....
    Im looking for personalised shot glasses to, will only need around 8 i think... im on the hunt :-)

      Whoo Our wedding date has been confirmed today, Its the date we requested May 6th, BUT we couldnt get the 4pm time we wanted so we are now getting married at 1PM... Im not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing?!?

      1.) Wanted to sunbathe AM.... (gana have to master getting ready pronto)

      2.) Ages to wait for reception diner.... (always stay at the bar before hand for longer)

      3.) Will it be too hot.... (have now got fans... THANKS KERRY)

      Ooooooooo look @ that, The good outweighs the bad....

      I think it will be ALL good :-) Argh it feels even more real now :-) Wedding pack should be through in a week or so (not holding breath though) xox

        Nicy it's such good news!! really happy for ya... xx

        let me know if you find any nice shot glasses!!

        CW emailed today with the new 2011 wedding package price for our hotel and it's a little higher than we want to pay. Only around £250 but i'm gonna email the WC at the hotel direct and see if she can do it any cheaper.. Worth a try a suppose. Every little helps doesn't it? Then hopefully we will confirm and get a contract signed! So exciting!!

          Oh that sucks!! Maybe try and play it that you "booked" in 2010 so therefore you budgeted based on those prices n that it was never mentioned before?

          I found out today that my resort wants $5 PER CHAIR to put a bow on! So thats $100 just to decorate some chairs u gotta be kidding me!!

              Kerry.....The chair and bow decoration is the same as our hotel the cost is quite high, they are also charging me for napkins etc as well!!!!

              Nicyx......Congrats on the date confirmation it's fantastic that you got the date you wanted.

              Michelle & Nicyx.....I am wanting personalised shot glasses to but not yet managed to find them, many places are asking for a high minimum order number and i only want about 20, if you find any let us know, i will do the same.

                    that sucks, but deffo worth trying to barter! or even say you'll pay that price if they throw in your flowers/cake/dj or something? try and get something for the cost

                    i find the cost of chair bows absolutely awful! how can they justify that?! my hotel are charging me $55 for 'set up costs' so she said i can bring anything i want on chairs/tables etc. so i bought the chiffon/taffata from ebay and they're going to put some on chairs (but not every chair, just down the aisle chairs etc)

                    thanks hon! course i don't mind! basically i bought some 220gsm paper. I designed the invites on powerpoint (I can email you them if you want?) and just printed them onto the paper. then i bought some of that acetate (I think that's what it's called) paper and cut each A4 page into three (long ways) and folded it round the invites and secured it with a tab (all of this from hobbycraft). then i attached the ribbon around the acetate the same way and added the starfish last (again with those sticky tab things) and they looked great!
