    Finished my invites this week & mailed out the long distance ones.  We're hand delivering the local ones to save $.  Really proud of the design:

      Wow these look really really great. I made my own too but they are not this intricate. These are gorgeous. I love the beads. I would def try to sell them. I like near the beach and have never seen them until I started planning my wedding.i was gonna buy some online but of course ppl wanted like 50$ a pair ...

            The ones she suggested for me are roses, freesias and lisianthus. I haven't been able to find the last two in the flower shops though, only roses. She suggested silk flowers for the ones that I want that would require her to import them from Holland. She also has all kind of tropical flowers such as lilies, cala lilies, gerber daisies, orchids, snapdragons, birds of paradise and a few others. Her prices are of course higher than the flower shops but she will arrange them for you, deliver them and you are guaranteed good quality.

             

            If you pick tropical flowers you'll have a better chance of finding them at a reasonable price since we are in the topics, either on your own or from a wedding florist. :) Most of the tropical ones I listed are availble at the flower shops in town.

             

            I went to a flower shop last night and their prices were a bit higher than Walmart although the quality is probably higher too. You can also pre-order with them via email with the shop I went into. It is called Floreria Sac-Nah and it is on the corner of 30th Ave and Calle 16, right across the street from the Walmart. Their email address is sacnah@hotmail.com. They don't speak English so I reccomend using Google translate if you want to email them to pre order your flowers. I would say you're having a gathering of friends and don't need them arranged, and don't mention they are for a wedding!! I wouldn't do it too far in advance either since "gatherings of friends" aren't usually planned months ahead of time.

             

            I took a photo of their price list (all in Spanish and pesos but I translated it) and here it is:

             

            Carnation (Clavel): 12 for 60 pesos or $4.70

            Daisy (Margarita): 12 for 80 pesos or $6.30

            Pom Pom: 12 for 80 pesos or $6.30

            Gladiola: 12 for 80 pesos or $6.30

            Spider (Spaider): 12 for 80 pesos or $6.30

            Alstroemeria: 12 for 150 pesos or $11.76

            Roses: 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

            Gerber Daisy: 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

            Cala Lilies (Alcatraz): 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

            Hibiscus (Hawaianas): 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

            Birds of Paradise (Aves de Parasio): 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

            Heliconia (similar to BoP): 12 for 220 pesos or $17.24

             

            Iris: 1 for 25 pesos ($2), price for 12 was blocked by a shelf... why they put a shelf in front of their price list, I don't know... the rest of the prices will be per 1 stem since that's the only price I could see

            They had a bunch listed that all seem to be coming up in Google as lilies...

            Lily (Lili): 1 for 25 pesos ($2)

            Tiger Lily (Acapulco): 1 for 45 pesos ($3.53)

            White Lily (Casa Blancas): 1 for 45 pesos ($3.53)

            Lily (Azucenas): 1 for 45 pesos ($3.53)

            Tulipanes (Tulips): 1 for 45 pesos ($3.53)

             

            Hope that helps for those of you doing DIY bouquets! Again, I think the prices at Walmart are better than the florerias but you're risking not being able to pre-order and having a limited selection. I'm going to Walmart today so I'll have a look at what the other prices are.

            My gosh! I could seriously kiss you right now! I feel like I have a spy on the the other side who is passing vital information to us!! Thank you so much for all your input. It is very much appricated.

              Whooooo!! You should celebrate with a cerveza! Now it's the waiting game to get the rsvp cards back. We sent ours out end of Dec with a RSVP by March 1. What's that you say? How many have we got back??? Ya um...we have 6 out of 30 sent. FML. Get on the ball people! I am about to send an email out that says "If I don't have your RSVP back in time I'm going to choose what you eat and it's not going to be what I think you like, it's going to the be the opposite....and NO booze for you!"

                This does not surprise me!  I had to sent out a few threatening emails before I got all of mine back .... and of course some never did show up, jerks!

                  Justin and I have grand plans for our wedding photos and couldn't pass up this deal for canvas prints.  The promotional value expires in August 2013, so plenty of time to get our pro pics back and pics the most cavas worthy!

                      Thank you!  I worked so hard on them, I do hope everyone loves them!  I received my first gushy response from a friend who received hers today, and it was super gratifying!  She's a published scrapbooker, so it was doubly nice, sort of like showing an outfit you made to a fashion designer and receiving positive feedback.  Made me very happy!
