Love the idea Slaughter2be... My bridesmaids went with Transformer dresses in the same color... Each will tie them in a style that suits them. My MOH even had hers cut into a high-low (which my wedding gown is)!

Oh yes I saw something like that on David Tutera. Looks very nice. I actually have two maids of honor. So thinking how to differentiate them, possibly lighter shade.

    Hi ladies, I haven't been on much due to this crazy semester I've been having at grad school. Only 2 more papers to submit and I'm done until February! Then I can use my whole break for the next month to focus on wedding planning. This would be so much easier if my friends and family would ACTUALLY RSVP!! grr, only 5 familes have responded so far out of over 120 invites we sent out! I guess it's my fault for giving them until January 15th to rsvp, totally regretting that.

     

    So far, my bridesmaids dresses are being custom-made (I did not have time to look for one, this was just easier for me and I have a friend who's making them) and I am patiently awaiting the arrival of my gown. My fiance and his best man are having some trouble finding linen suits, considering it's almost winter! Any ideas on where to find these kinds of suits in the offseason? 

     

    I've also decided to use uplighting and extra drapery for my reception in the ballroom, I think it will give it a nice look as I saw a previous bride used it in this forum. Just trying to figure out what the wedding dept. might have listed it as on the pricing list... maybe LED lights? I'm trying to hold off bugging Aris, my WC until next month.

     

    only 3 1/2 months to go for me!

    LovelyGemini, my FI ordered his pants from Tommy Bahama, which I am totally nervous about as they still have not arrived (we leave in less than 3 weeks and the 1st pair were not the color he wanted). I ordered his & the groomsmen's linen shirts from the Gap, but not sure if they still have them. Good luck!!

      Candacey, thanks for the tip!! I'll have the groomsmen check it out. 

       

      Oh no!!! call them up and explain the situation, maybe they'll send them express to make sure you get them on time!!

        Hi Ladies! 

         

        I can't believe we are 4 months away from our special day! I have bought mostly everything we need, but I still have so much anxiety as to the "little" things that need to be done. I know for sure everything will fall into place, and that puts me more at ease! 

         

        HAPPY PLANNING GIRLYS!

        Hi there - I made the mistake of not buying linne suits for my fiance and the groomsmen in the summer time.  Luckily, my fiance and I found these suits online, they turned out amazing and fit true to size: http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/B002T6N68G

         

        We ordered the dark blue as our wedding theme is nautical.

         

        That is an amazing deal!

         

        I live in Canada and we had them shipped to my cousin in Atlanta who came home for the holidays so we saved a lot on shipping costs.

         

        best of luck!

         

        Melissa

        Yay I'm back in! Missed you ladies. I could only read for a while, couldn't post because the password reset wasn't working for me.

         

        Soooo general question.... How is it having a September wedding in DR? Thinking about moving my date, but weary of hurricane season. Anyone on here have a September wedding or been to DR in September?

          Less than 3 months to go and 4 days left until the official RSVP date and I'm still (im)patiently waiting for my lovely family members to respond...  -_-

           

          An issue that many of our guests have been complaining about has to do with the "Day/Night Pass" that people have to purchase in order to even attend the wedding if they are not staying at BBPD. The day pass covers entrance from 10am-6:00pm and cost $55pp. However, my wedding is at 5:00pm and the reception starts at 7:00 which means everyone will have to purchase the "night pass", also $55pp in order to stay on the property after 6:00pm. I think it's a little steep at $110pp especially when we're already having to pay $50+ for them as additional guests on top of our wedding package.

           

          But anyway, does anyone know if children have to pay the full price of the pass? Can't remember having read this in previous posts.

          Hi Ladies

           

          Just wondering if anyone could help me with finding a vendor for real touch flowers/bouquets. I know there are plenty on etsy & other sites, but I would feel better about ordering if I know people who had good experiences with them. Thanks!
