CANDLE HOLDER/PLACE SETTINGS: I really love SIMPLE décor and LOVE lights and candles.  I wasnâ€t going to originally do place settings because I didnâ€t really care where people sat. But then we had 2 menu options so we had to do something to differentiate the beef choice from the salmon choice.  So, I purchased candle holders and printed each guestâ€s name on a piece of vellum paper and cut the paper to fit inside of the candle holder. To wrapped a pink ribbon for the salmon choice and a tealish/blue for beef choice and taped it using double sided tape.  I used flickering tea lights to light them up and whalla…easy, affordable and elegant! See pics for up close and far away shots of the candles.  I am now selling:

-          Candle Holders- $1.50 each + shipping. These are actually 8oz polycarbonate tumblers that I purchased for $2/each. They stack easy and are so easy to pack in your suit case! I have 34 of these left.

-          Flickering Flameless Candles (6 pack)- $3 per 6 pack + shipping. I have 3 unopened packs.

-          17 Light blue chair ribbons- $4 for of all of them + shipping. The ribbons are 8†x 3y. They came in packs of 6 and I have one pack that is still unopened.

-          Guest Book: $3 + shipping. The guest book is very cute and beachy. We forgot to set it out, oops!

-          Thank you cards for a bridal shower (11 cards): $1 + shipping  http://www.myexpression.com/prodDetail.cfm?ProductID=16799&CFID=14285389&CFTOKEN=bbe738737ebd51c5-5D1D6473-2BFD-02BD-DE436B517684778C&jsessionid=de306740e9023308da7167667f50291c3f33

For more info:  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/67323/cake-stand-cake-jewelry-cake-boxes-w-pics#post_1516653

                             - CAKE STAND: For the cake stand, I purchased a sheet of 24x24†plexiglass and held it up with 9 round “candle holders†which we filled with clear crystals and put blue lights in them. This looked AWESOME at night (our reception was dark).  I also brought the candle holders from home (which I purchased as 14oz polycarbonate tumblers)…they are plastic so they travel easily. I purchased them from simplysmartliving.com for $4 ea, will sell for $3/ea + shipping (I have 9 of them).


                            -  CAKE JEWELRY: I was (still am) in love with my cake jewelry. I had the resort design a simple cake and then bling it up with these special touches. That way, you spend less on the cake and more on the décor….that you get back and can either re-use or sell, of course!  I purchased mine for $140 for the set…SOLD http://www.bestbridalprices.com/bel-aire-bridal-cake-jewelry-c4008-p-21988.html?keyword=cake+jewelry


                          -  CAKE BOXES: I saw this idea and stole it from someone on here. This was definitely one of the smartest things we did. Most people donâ€t eat the cake at the wedding (who knows why) and this way people can take one back to their room with them (or home) and eat it either late night (munchies) or the next day. We purchased stickers that said had our name and wedding date on them and put it on them to sit out. The boxes are white 4x4x2 ½†with window a window. I have 77 of these left (no stickers on them). I will sell for $0.30 each or SOLD. I purchased these from brpboxshop.com.

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣
