Shane I can't believe u found a dress. Did I miss the post??? Which one?? pics pics. text me a pic for God sakes lol. The dress is with the seamstress lol. You know that child wants to test my patience to the last second lol. It will be ready on Friday or saturday and I will def text u pics. U saved me from an absolute nightmare. 

 

Coco it's all good- it's a running joke because I always think I know everything and he laughs that I go running to u. when our weddings are all over we should all try to get together somewhere maybe a night out in Manhattan if you and Shane ever come this way or jersey maybe AC if you do that. 

 

Thanks Jamie it all goes so fast ;)

 

Chipmunk the parasols were something I wanted from the start also. I got the pink ones from luna bazaar and i love them - the mr & mrs I got from etsy and I am a little upset because the seams all have glue showing through and it kind of looks dirty. she offered to take them back but i waited so long i wouldn't have been able to get new ones without paying rush charges. i wish I would have done a color because i think it's the white because she said she got them from luna bazaar also and my pink ones don't have that. They are so cute though and the pink ones were like 7 or 8 dollars each and the mr & mrs was 35 with shipping so really not bad considering that i can use them for ceremony decor, pictures and than reception decor as well !! 

 

The pashminas are really pretty good quality and only 4 bucks. but the shipping was a little steep but my husband said he would rather pay shipping than drive into the city so that works for me lol. They say pashmina on them and they are really a nice size. I wanted to do pink ones and put them out at my reception but it is at the end of the week and i thought they could really use them all week and who wants pink pashminas so i got cream and black and I will put them in there bags.

 

Okay to clarify the shirt situation lmao he does not want to tuck this pink shirt in- he bought this pink shirt so he wouldn't have to wear the linen one i wanted him to wear UNTUCKED with his suit jacket over it. He has this thing about wearing a jacket without tucking in his shirt so this pink one he wants to wear without the jacket and untucked which i guess is the better option. apparently i can't get my way all the time and it is either a suit jacket with a tucked in shirt or the pink one untucked . why does he make me want to kill him right before my big day lol. hissyfit.gif

Thanks girl! WOW! 10 days!!!!! How exciting! You will LOVE it! One suggestion: Walkie Talkies! That was the BIGGEST pain in the ass!!! No one wanted to use their cells because of roaming, and we didn't have a strict event timeline since we wanted people to do what they wanted during the day, AND of course no one spent any time in their rooms so it wasn't like you could catch people there...it made it REALLY hard to find everyone and not lose people if we needed to run and do something wedding related. People aren't kidding when they say this place is HUGE!

HI Girls,

 

I NEED HELP PLEASE....... I'm getting married at the Moon Palace in October 2012. I booked the Sapphire Package early 2011.  I was all chilled out about it. Was happy that everything was taken care of didn't have to do a thing just turn up.

 

NOW with only 7 months to go I'm in complete panic. Someone please help me What are oot bags do i need them?

We have dinner reservations for 35 people. At first i thought this was great value now I'm wondering, is the wedding party going to be sitting with everyone else having dinner? Where will we have our first dance? What will we do once dinner is over? Also i only have 12 adult guests coming plus 8 young children. we are on a budget so i don't really want to spend out on a DJ or a function room. I'm getting really scared now and want to cancel the whole thing. My other concern is the Theme sapphire. I live in the UK and cannot get sapphire colored table runners or sashes, I'm not very creative but does anyone know if instead i could use Royal blue? if not what shade of blue would work best?  Sorry everyone i know I'm rambling but i need help.

The raffia was fine but i put a small glue dot on each one to make sure it stays in place. I got the glue dots from michaels they have all different sizes so the small ones and it comes in a dispenser so it is quick and easy and it makes sure the raffia doesn't fall off. The poems are:

 

 

Now the partyâ€s getting good.
Weâ€d like to hear this if we could.
Stand and shake with all your might.
To see the groom kiss his bride tonight

and

Rather than tapping on your glass,
Hereâ€s a system with mexican class.
Stand and shake with all your might,
To see the bride kiss her groom tonight.

 

I used the second one and I got printable favor tags from Michaels (Gartner studios) and you can get any shape that has perforated edges. You go on a website that gives you either a blank template or all different templates with flowers or designs and you write in the poem and print them up- this tag even has a little hole so it was easy to tie it. I stamped mine with stamps and pink ink that I had anyway because I couldn't get a picture on them with the way the template is but I am not very good like that so you probably could and than I put our sticker on the back. They are so cute. one of my favorite things. I saw really nice hang tags that people had made up on etsy and i was thinking of doing it but I am running out of money lol.

   yes in the wedding aisle at Michaels there are all different types of tags and labels. They all have the website on the back of the package and u put in the UPC code and get free templates . make sure you get tags and not labels. i did that the first time and they were stickers lmao duhhh. really easy. if u need anything else just email me ladydi1844@aol.com I probably have the template if you get the same tags. Do a few practice runs on plain paper and measure it up to the tags before u waste any because it took me a few tries to line it up just right.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
