Hey! Your wedding looked so beautiful!  I am getting married there Dec. 30/2013 and I noticed that it looks like you had lights under your head table?  Did you have to pay extra for that?  If yes, how much?  I really like how it looks!

Thank you! I actually didn't even know about the lights until we got there, so we didn't have to pay for them they just did it. Might be worth asking about!

Okay, I think this is actually my favorite planning thread so far!  You hooked me with the treasure chest, and I've been stalking all of you sellers on etsy  haha.  Where did you get the beach bags?  I absolutely love them!

I figured I should just start a thread with my goodies, since I'll be going along and wanted to share in case anyone else gets some ideas from my stuff, I figured I post it as I go along.  They'll be lots more to come, as I'm not getting married until January, but here's what we have so far: My Birdesmaid invitation boxes  Just something I pulled together with a little creativity at the local dollarstore.  I really wanted a different and super special way of inviting my girls! BM Boxes.jpg these are just beautiful!!! My Save-the-Dates. I designed these up in Photoshop and then just had them printed on 4" x 6" photos, and attached them to magnets (I cut up self-adhesive biz card magnets from Staples and stuck them on the back).  Ben & Sarah Save The Date 1.30.2013.jpg My self-designed logo (again, Photoshop).  We'll likely use this for some of the tags as well as the mugs I'm going to get screen printed. LOGO-6.jpg My centerpieces *I think*  I saw something really cool this weekend that may make it's way into these plans and flows a bit more of the vintage feel into it, which I'll of course add here if I do!! Again, dollar store cheapy vases and Orchids from Jysk (surprisingly good quality). Pardon the crappy cell phone pic ;).  I think I'll have some scatter gems mixed with seashells around these.  418207_10151351818295702_556685701_23241010_2127310644_n.jpg My card box. I love this one!  I cam across this treasure chest at Jysk for $15 and I just loved it, but I really want some more vintagey" feeling things at the wedding. So, I painted it up and antiqued it.  A very messy but fun process. Treasure Chest.jpg My "vintage" table number photo frames!  Again, a steal at the Dollarama, they are actually $1 plastic frames (which is perfect because they weigh NOTHING for travel).  I spray-painted them (using a spray paint meant for plastic) and then used my same paint/glazing method as I did for the box.  I'm not sure this is my final design for the numbers themselves, but that's what I've come up with so far, that co-ordinates with my other Photoshop designs so far. Table-Numbers-Collage.jpg That's it so far!  I hope to have lots more to show you (lord knows I have a head full of ideas, whether they actually work or not, that's a different story!!)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
