Can I asked where he got them, I've been searching for the pink ones - the diamond is easier to find. I also want those JCrew sandals! I'm so glad you posted this thread - your very inspiring.
Aww you're so so sweet, dominiqueamber! I never would have thought I'd be 'inspiring' hehe, but I'll definitely take it as a wonderful compliment. And thanks, the hubs is a hottie, if I do say so myself. I lucked out with him.
The dresses blew everyone away at the wedding. No one could believe how cheap they were. The girls (one who recently got married) were dumbfounded and very proud. The guys (one of the guys was like. "uhhh... aren't they usually like... 20x that?") were all impressed with my cheap skills. If you don't already have your dress or would consider a bargain one, let me know. I can probably share some extra insight on that. It's probably not the best method of everyone, but again... budget bride here and too many expenses.
The roses were beautiful and actually lasted the rest of our stay in Cancun. We used them the following day for our TTD session and they held up really well. FREEEE! was the best part! haha His matching corsage was also included free of cost.
Also free... our wedding cake.
Thanks again about the rings and flip flops.
Flip flops, go to your outlet stores!! J.crew has very reasonable prices at the outlet stores.
Rings -- I actually need to get the hubs to check in with this one. He knows a local and reasonable jeweler here in LA. That's one recommendation for sure. Local and family owned places are usually much more willing to negotiate with you. Don't be afraid to negotiate the price. We all know they're marked up and everyone's hurting in the economy. Both my necklace and rings were all picked out by the hubs.
Pictures to follow...
