    Check with your resort first on the petals for the aisle...most resorts will not allow you to use your own petals as they have to be freeze dried. If they are just fake petals can you imagine how littered the beach and ocean would be from all the weddings. My resort will only allow me to use my own if i have a certif showing that they are freeze dried.

I am going to order more sugar starfish on Ebay and put some on the front of the gazebo with turquoise tulle. I may also put a starfish on each chair with the turquoise chair ties.

     

    What do you think about using fake rose petals? The hotel is charging a crazy amount for them and I was thinking of getting the fake turquoise petals to line each side of the aisle...I am making red fabric pomanders, was going to hang one on the end of each row of chairs, but now thinking it may be too much if I use chair sashes that are turquoise. Do you have any thoughts? I have looked at lots of photos but a bit frustrated on how to incorporate both of our colors, red and turquoise...

        Me either!! Sadly it was too late. I had bought about 8 huge bags of petals and when i had my planning call with my resort they told me i wasnt allowed!! I will probably just sell them or re-use them for something else.

                Our final payments are due Dec 1st for a package leaving Jan 29th.  We were impressed how much our TA managed to wiggle things when she called the right person (the tour operator).  I would lay it on thick with the TA and tell her to do the very best she can with the tour company to keep everyone on board.  That would be in her best interests as well...more sales!

                    the TA says the reason why it is due early is because we are getting an early booking bonus

                      I would DEF talk to your TA...my guests just had to make final payments and we leave Oct 21st. Their 200 dollar deposits were due a while ago though. Originally they wanted payment in June which still isnt bad but i was able to stretch it.
