      It's kind of like a villa or boutique hotel. Very small.

      www.syrynity.com

      I think that's the website.

      Very nice!! I almost did a boutique hotel in Mexico too- I liked how intimate it would be but it didn't hold enough people. What day are you flying in on and who are you flying with?

            Very cute! I like that you get a bit of height too. I'm short so this would work well. Just checked the site. LOVE THE PRICES!! I like the cute dresses too. Lol. ...i'm so not focused!

            My mom and I both purchased a pair from the site (hers were flats with bling) and they look awesome in person. The customer service was great. We had to send both pairs back for the next larger size because they seemed to run a little small but the owner was great and sent the new pairs out really quickly.

              I forgot if you don't see your color/size email her. She didn't have my size in white in stock but she ordered them for me.

                Wow I came back to alot of posts of everyone freaking out lol at least it's not just me. But reading everyone's to do lists makes me feel better we are all pretty much on the same page give or take a few items. What is everyone doing for speeches? I'm not much of a speech person and with only 3 hours for dinner and reception I don't really wanna take alot of time with talking. I was thinking just a BM and MoH speech and we will say a short thank you. I'm not sure if there are any other speeches we are 'supposed' to do that would make anyone upset if we left it out.

                  We are struggling w that too...I think my parents will want to say something, but then his will. And so it begins.

                    @Dazey I was wondering the same thing re speeches. I think MOH, BM, parents, and one or two special ppl on ea of our sides can say speeches. To avoid it taking up too much time I'll have speeches start during dinner so we're not sitting around waiting for them to be over.

                     

                    @Danak, I will look into them for sure. Thanks for this. I saw a couple other cute prs on the site but will need to take more time and order the perfect pair from them.

                     

                    @KHunt, Michaels sells a nice sand ceremony set for about $50-60. BUT, I just bought the sand from them and had an old but pretty vase at home that works perfectly. I plan to remove the label from the sand container and add a ribbon so it doesn't look so bland. If you want the budget friendly version, just buy 4 different sand colours from Michaels and one large vase (they have some urns there that would work nicely). Even winners and dollarama have great options. In fact, Dollarama has 4 vases and the larger one to pour it into.Some of them even have the sand.

                     

                    SHOOT!! I also need to get clear stones for my centrepieces...add that to my list!!! ARGHH!!

                     

                    @KDoyle, I fly in on the 6th. The entire ceremony is outdoors (please god keep the rain away), so it can hold all of our guests (approx 100). we have a tent as our backup but again I will be praying the rain away that week and entire day.
