      Jessica at Stylish Scribe was so great to work with. One small complaint I have is that once she is done with your order, she does not respond to emails. I emailed her shortly after I had received my invites (and confirmed they were good) to ask about the postage for the invites and she never responded. That being said, she was very responsive throughout the creation process and they really came out beautiful. We've gotten rave reviews!

       

      Quick update - I booked my make-up artist and hair stylist. I am working with Peter-Gaye Lambert-Rose (female) and one of her stylists. They have been very responsive and the hair dressers claims she can keep my wild tresses from frizzing out the day of. For airbrush make-up and lashes and hair for me, and traditional make-up and hair for my two attendants and FMIL, the cost is $620. A 50% deposit via Western Union was required to confirm the booking. You can see her work here.

      I almost used the stylish scribe! She does great work.

          Thanks!  I figure this is the only way anything will get done.  Lol!  I should be receiving the samples this week, so I will post another update re: how they look.  I still go back and forth between spending the money on chair ties in the colors I want and just going with the free silver or white chair ties from the resort.  I think it will ultimately come down to money if we need to cut costs as we get closer.


          Next on my to do list is to start exploring possible excursion options.  Since we are only "hosting" 4 days, we don't want to infringe too much on our guests free time, however, many people have asked us what activities we're planning.  We are hosting a welcome cocktail hour on the Thursday most guests arrive, a rehearsal dinner and possible "last night out" for Friday night, the wedding is Saturday and then a good-bye/thank you brunch on Sunday.  I was thinking maybe a group trip to Aquasol Theme Park which is a theme park at Walter Fletcher Beach and has all kinds of activities (fees may apply) such as jet skiing, glass bottom boat rides, go-karts, etc.  According to Frommer's, admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids, plus the cost of any activities.  I figured that while I can't afford to take everyone on a specific excursion, I might be able to afford to at least coordinate the trip to this park and pay the admission fee for our guests.  We'll see how this works out.

          I am going to check out efavormart for me sashes as well as I will be needing some. I ordered samples from cvlinens but I think the ones you mentioned are a better price.
          Can't wait to see more of what you are planning!!

                  Every thing looks great so far! I ordered my invites from weddingpaperdivas, and was really happy with the quality for the price.

                    Thank you!  I actually received my chair tie and table runner samples from efavormart.com and they are not bad at all!  The colors are perfect (sage and turquoise) and the price is right!!  The green runner is a slightly more narrow than the turquoise but I'm not sure if it's supposed to be.  I plan on alternating the tables with turquoise and sage runners and alternating chair tie colors around the table.  I will try to post a pic soon.
