*waves* Hi everyone! I'm new!
I'm in the process of confirming a June 15th, 2012 wedding with DPB. I sent in my request form and CC auth form a couple hours ago by e-mail. Mercy has been responding to my e-mails thus far, quickly I might add.
I saw those photos of the (flags? sheets?) hanging from the palm trees and fell in love. Mercy said the only ceremony decorations that comes included in the "free" package are the white chair covers and ceremonial table, which is fine with me.. I'm not really into bows, or arbors, or what not. But those sheet things from the palms? GORGEOUS! BRILLIANT! I'm dying to know if that bride rented those, or just brought them herself (what material? where? who had to tie them to the trees?!) What a clean, crisp look. Love it!
Also... I'm a total budget bride. Anyone else out there bankrolling this thing themselves? We need to share ideas. I'm definitely going to go for the semi-private dinner, but what after? Would it be fun just go to the disco? Has anyone seen the bonfire thing? I'm only going to have about 20 guests so, it's not a total big deal if I don't pull out all the stops, but I still want to have a WEDDING and have FUN!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to stalking this thread for the next year or so...!
