      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.

        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.Posted Image

              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 :)

                  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.
