@hapykat - We are renting 12 vases total…three sets of three different sizes for centerpieces that we are putting together. Below is the picture that Jessica sent me to show me what they have. As you can see, there are three different sizes. She quoted me at $4 per vase, so we should be looking at $36 total. Of course, I'm hoping that she doesn't come back and tell me otherwise. I should be getting a current invoice from her soon to double check where we are at with everything so far. I actually sent her a follow-up email this morning about it.

    @hapykat they did contouring but only a little. I added more when I got back to my room!

    We used some different songs or not so traditional. I'm trying to even remember what my husband chose for the bridal party since I couldn't hear it lol. I walked down to my aunt singing the beyonce version of Ave Maria (the song has special family meaning)

    After the ceremony we walked back down the aisle to "I got a woman" by Ray Charles lol. We has a super laid back wedding though.

    For our 1st song we also did something more untraditional and did "Blowers Daughter" by Damien Rice.

    For centerpieces, we did BC-13 since 2 were included with the gold package. From the picture they looked small but they were HUGE and beautiful. I wish I had gotten a picture of it because a lot of people complimented them. They were only $70 each so we only had to pay for 3 after the 2 free ones.

    Let me know if y'all have any other questions!
    @Sabes44 we didn't do a first look pictures, our "first look" was when my husband saw me walk down the aisle. For me 30 minutes was plenty of time for getting ready, I didn't have any shots in mind and she captured more than enough for me. If you are wanting to do first look I can definitely see why you would want the additional
    30 minutes. My husband didn't care that much about pictures so we went pretty basic are were more than happy withy how everything turned out. And our first look pictures of him seeing me walk to the alter are some of my favorite and very special ;)

    @hapykat -  So how much did she tell you?!

     

    This is really getting ridiculous with every single price increasing. It's not even about budget at this point; it's about the principal of the matter. I am starting to get really irked. Nowhere in that email that I forwarded you did she mention a possible price increase for 2015 and she knew my wedding date.

    @JenniferH114
    I have yet to get a quote. I think many brides are opting for the vase rental since the arrangements are so expensive and now they're trying to find another way to make some money

    @hapykat - I'm sure that's what it is. I just find the constant changes irritating, and then when we hear on this thread that people are being told different things I start to question.

    To all former brides I was wondering if Mosquitos were an issue on your wedding day?

    @hapykat we had no problems with mosquitoes and I'm a mosquito magnet! Never even saw one.

    @JenniferH114 that is very frustrating that prices change so much. When I was planning, I noticed it a few times between brides but from what I'm reading now a lot has changed. Jessica will honor the original price she gave you though. I rented 3 vases and they were $5 a piece.
