I emailed Beverly today about the gazebo as we are doing it even though my mom thinks its a waste of money, however I know we cant afford the $15pp for a bartender...heck this should be free in my opinion!
White chair covers are free - however I am going to buy aqua organza sashes to wrap around them and the poles that are leading to the gazebo. I dont know if it needs anymore decoration than that I have seen people put those coloured paper lanters up so I might still consider that, however I dont know if its needed as the scenery is enough in itself!
I want to do something else with my guests and was thinking of doing a bonfire the night before the reception...I dont think it was that much money so it might be something to look into!
We are meeting with a photographer in 2 weeks as I agree with others that its really important. My FI's best man does it professionally but we dont want to ask him and take away from his "duties" as he calls it, lol...even though he says he doesnt mind.
I shopped around here for real touch flowers to bring down for the girls and it looks like it will be the same $$ to get them fresh down there so thats an added cost.
The website they deal with is Tai Flora - I found it helpful to look through and I love the music on the site...haha!
