I mean it's not like the groomsmen stuff (ie Golf stuff and Beer) so what now??? And I don't think he'd enjoy lipgloss and pink spanx like the girls. UGH I need some ideas ladies!

 

Cuff links or a watch maybe... fun dress socks in your colors to wear at the wedding...

Oh I love the coloured socks idea for a GBFF!! If all the girls are wearing coloured shoes... Great photoOp. That standard picture, bride and all her girls feet (to show the shoes) only the GBFF lifting up his pants slightly to show coloured socks that match the BMs shoes lol.

So true about the photo op... I showed Justin and surprisingly he was all about it - me and my chartreuse green shoes and I just found him a pair of argyle green socks

We are totally having a beach themed laid back AHR because I'm not paying for a wedding reception twice!!!

UGH! So I wanted to have a real laid back reception and thought it would be fun to have buckets of beer and wine on the table. Anyone wanna guess what they're charging?? Min price of a bottle was $21 and a bottle of Beringer White Zin was $27!!! You can get that at a liq store state size for $10 for a liter. My BFF BDW Kellaway had the smart idea to get buckets while we're down there and just grab the beer out of our mini fridges.

Ladies! 

 

I am desperately looking for cheap beach bags.  I was hoping for bulk jumbo bags to come in stock at dollar tree, but I just called and they are not going to be getting them in bulk any more.  I also called the individual stores and they said that they are not going to get them.  Any one have any leads???

 

Please help!

The three quotes I got came from Elite Media Concepts, Kevan Stewart, and a local club dj, which is who I believe we're going to end up using. All charged the same price so I assume that's the going rate. Elite and Kevan have websites - just google them as I can't recall off hand what they are.

On a sidenote, I have been to a JA wedding where ELite was the DJ and it was great!! They played every type of music, genre, era etc and did mashups,  & mixes. Felt like a MuchMusic VIdeo dance party lol.
