    I think I may just bring my own as well. Having the outside vendor fee really makes sure you don't save any money :(

      Hey girls! My wedding is 13 days away... I'm so excited! I had to tell you (especially those worried about the cost of centerpieces) that while I was in hobby lobby the other day I found a type of fake flower called "real touch". They look & feel so real... I decided to make my bridesmaids bouquets myself!! They also happened to be 50% off! So each of my bouquets cost $12.50 vs. The resorts $80. I also found matching, pre-made boutonnieres in their wedding section that are made with the same real touch flowers! They're $2.99 each. I'll post some pics later, but had to tell you guys so you can check them out. It will be a ton cheaper to make your own & pay for an extra suitcase than it is to buy theirs, or pay the vendor fee for someone else's.

Yeah the his & hers from hobby lobby are great! And if you're not good at making your own, they have per-made bouquets! My wedding is January 26th in the Gazebo. :)

                  I love those bouquets! Looks like a Hobby Lobby trip is in order this week...

                   

                  Is anyone shipping things down ahead of time? I was told by my WC there is no way to do that. I'm not convinced though. I used to do trade shows for work, and for a fee you could always ship a box or two to the front desk ahead of time... At this rate my suitcases won't have room for clothes!

                    Any resort would let you do that. I did that when I was on a vacation, let alone this will be your wedding.
