I am wearing a waltz length veil (about calf length). Who knows how I will handle it with the wind...that's one of my worries but I hate the look of those veil weights so I'm gonna wing it.

I have about a dozen mercury glass holders and another dozen silver tealights.. that's just not enough on its own.  I just want something simple and beautiful... but not empty looking... sigh.. two years of planning and I never thought I'd be here one month out.

 

Do you have bridesmaids who will have bouquets?  I am using all of our bouquets as centrepieces.  I bought vases and glued burlap and lace around them.  I also am using mercury glass votives and tea light holders.  I picked up double sided picture frames from Ikea and I'm going to have photos of us in black and white on one side and the other side "I Spy" sign for photo poses.  I also am taking down my own place cards and menus.

I have 5 rectangular tables. I'm doing the 11'' borby lantern from ikea ($10) with a pillar candle and on either side I'm doing a small silver pail with an assortment of garden roses and other flowers. The pails are also from ikea and were $1 each. The florist for my resort is providing the flowers at $25 a pail or $50 a table. My resort provides burlap runners at no charge. And I'm still debating adding some votives

We're also doing rectangular tables. I got tall (maybe 12") cylinder vases and white Rotera lanterns with tealights from Ikea. I'm going to alternate those and put orchids in the vases w a floating candle and turquoise stones in the bottom- Hopefully it looks ok lol! Pic below shows the layout we are also doing, and you can see her luminaries there, we'll be replacing those with vases and lanterns.400

We leave for the Now Sapphire in exactly three weeks! I am so excited, but I'm sad to say I am WAY over planning. Is this normal? I don't want to make any of the last minute items (fans/ programs, menus, door hangers, etc.) that I was planning on, but I'm worried I'll regret it later on. Advice?

If it doesn't matter to you and your FI, then don't worry about doing it just to please other people. I hadn't planned on doing any of that, but ended up doing so, and will say I'm glad that I did. My FI made all of ours in publisher, if you're interested in just using ours as a template to save time, I'd be more than happy to share what I have :)

Tova,

 

What length do you use? Obviously you go a little longer on the edges. I really like this look.

I know my tech told me, but I honestly can't remember.  When I got my first set in Decemeber, I took a pair of the fake Ardell lash strips that I use to wear and told her to match them. I'll try to remember and ask her during my next appt.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
