    Some pics from online...that trivet for the base of a centerpiece...

     



    I don't know where to post this, but I happened to stop in at Pier 1 this afternoon, and WOW...for any of you brides using peacock feathers/colours as accents, you should pay them a visit.  I saw packs of peacock-printed tissues for $1...they had these beautiful peacock feather round trivets(?)...in the placemat section...one of those in the middle of the table with a glass vase & flowers would be stunning.  They had beautiful fabric drapery panels embroidered with peacock feathers that you could take some wicked photos with I'm sure.  Just stickin' it out there!

            Allie,

            Thanks for the info.

            I received a Groupon yesterday for laser teeth whitening and I was a bit worried. I read about another bride's bad experience so I am glad to hear the crest white strips work.

            I have heard that the fill in molds are better then the strips. Do you know anything about that?

I plan to do this before my wedding, and they only cost about $45 compared to the $200-300 it can cost for your dentist to do!

              I so hear you on the wedding blahs!  I have no desire to deal with my wedding at all but could be due to a slight frustration with my TA.  I really thought they were supposed to take away stress and not add more.  Apparently my guests final payments were due today which wouldn't be a big deal if she had given the heads up but oh no she went Mexico in mid Nov and apparently is down there for a month (Who doesn't tell there clients they are going away right when there final payments should be due!!) and her email didn't even work for the first week she was down there had me thinking she had disappeared and now that it is working she let us know two days ago to let our guests know that payment was due today and then today she talked to the tour operator and had it extended for another two weeks.  Oh and the even better part is she told some people that it wasn't due until Jan and another lady who paid her deposit in Aug was just informed that her deposit never went through and not due to lack of space on credit card but due to her punching in a wrong number!  Is it not her job to catch these things happening and inform our guests of when payments are due and of any travel changes that happen???  We don't have a list who says whos paid and not!!  My word of advice is don't use a independent TA cuz if they suck you don't really have anyone to complain to or at least until everything is dealt with!   Sorry thats my rant just had to get it off my chest!!!

              Ladies...I have a confession to make....Just not really into the whole wedding plan thing right now.  I wish it would hurry up and get here but don't really feel like doing much else for it.  Maybe once my exam is over on December 9th, I will feel more into it.

               

              Anybody else getting the wedding blahs??



              Yes take it in!  Mine is 18k white gold and started turning yellow after 6 months so high quality or not it happens to all of them!  Just do be prepared to hand it over for a week but it comes out amazing and looks just like new again!

              I will definitely try taking it in. Thank you!

                No I don't know anything about the fill in molds, can these be bought at the drugstore, or do you have to purchase them at the dentist's office? I'm curious about the price and to hear if any other bride/future bride has tried them!

                  I'm almost positive I've seen these molds at Shopper's and Walmart right next to the Strips but I'm not sure which is better.

                    So when I joined this forum I decided to read through the whole thread. I'm proud to day I'm on page 94. Woohoo!! I'm getting there and I'm taking notes. Talk about informative.

                    I'm feeling very discouraged at the moment because I've fallen in love with a hotel that is out of our price range    I'm really in love with Majestic Colonial. But for our June wedding the best price I can find is $1365 and we're trying to stay as close as possible to $1200. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win the lottery but I don't think it's going to happen. Time for a reality check. Don't you just hate those.

                     

                    So....For all of you who have already picked your hotel. Which hotel did you pick and why?

                      @ceciliag62,

                       

                      I know a lot of people on BDW have gone through travel agents for pricing. We didn't. I called around to the airlines and to hotels and asked them what is the best rate they could offer our guests. Don't just check web prices, call, too!

                       

                      We are choosing our hotel because it is on both of our sisters' timeshares. This will make it more cost effective for our parents and siblings to attend since our sisters can request multiple rooms through the timeshare. We also are choosing this hotel because they have the lowest fee for guest passes and many of our guests live on the island or will need to stay at other hotels. Lastly, since we are having our wedding, reception, and other activities off-site, we didn't want our guests to feel like they were losing money staying at an all-inclusive and not having any of the benefits. This hotel offers European, Full breakfast, and All-inclusive plans, allowing our guests to choose what fits them best.

                       

                      Hope this helps.
