@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.
Oh I hear ya on that sister! I just spent a ton on decor , chairs, lighting ...and our entire ceremony, dinner and reception is outside ---so I am praying for no rain as well. I'll make a special wish for you on your day We fly in on the 12th so we will likely be overlapping for a few days
