These are mine, in petal pink, I'll have 3 girls in each.

Aww very cute!!!! My main concern was a maxi dress (so i don't have to worry about matching shoes) and that they could wear it again. They all loved that you could tie them differently so they'll look like different dresses!! and for the price....I can't complain much!

The coozies are so cute!  We definitely do live close enough to do a group buy. I'm guessing I need between 48-52, but I want mine clear.  I'm going to put waterproof labels on them that I found on Etsy.  I want the majority to be surprised which is why I'd just have my Mom and Sister pack stuff for me, they won't be surprised by anything because they're helping me with everything all ready. I'm getting them each separate gifts they'll be surprised with anyway :)
So I stopped at the dollar store in Woburn this morning.. they had .... A few all different colors... Mostly clear... I can't decide if i want clear... I grabbed all the blue and green ones they had...I also can't decide if I like the red ones hahah Which they had a bunch of. With the amount you need you a couple of cases would be perfect for you and maybe a few strays from the store.... I still don't even know if I want to add the tumblers hahah.... I do love the koozies... I can't decide if the cups or koozies would get used more.... Doing both would just be too much! Right? Hehe Secret gifts are sooo fun :)

It seems like everything is out of our price range, I am looking for a small boutique hotel in the playa del carmen or Tulum area, and a wedding planner that is reasonable, will work with our budget but also make our wedding beautiful!!

Welcome!   You but you may want to almost work backwards before you fall in love with a place that just isn't reasonable, which was the very first thing I did only to realize my guests would've been paying $4K minimum for 5 days. 

 

After that mini hiccup I decided the max I wanted my guests to spend per person then went from there. I did a lot of research to find a beautiful place that would still be affordable for our guests. I also researched airfare which is why I'm getting married 2/7 and not later in Feb like I originally wanted, when the airfare was much higher.  My resort has great reviews and the pictures are gorgeous, it also accepts kids and for those with real little ones it didn't impact the room rate (all things I researched and had quoted out too).  My wedding planner has been so hopeful and responsive but my resort is definitely not boutique style so it probably wouldn't be of interest to you, but someone on here may have some really good suggestions for you.

 

i agree. I fell in love with a place that would have cost twice if not three times more than where I am having my wedding. It was beautiful but it wasn't fair to my guests. I actually grew to like the place where I will be marrying my best friend :)

Including:

invites

STD

photos

reception

ceremony

music

coordinator

welcome party

Our  budget is $7,000. The package at our resort includes the video and the pictures and all the bouquets, ceremony, reception, cocktail hour and lots of extras etc and is $3,000. My dress was $750 and our STD came out to $110 with shipping and everything. Our DJ is $850 and WC free. Were just going to go as a group to a restaurant as a welcome dinner and eat for free since it's all inclusive.

 

These are reasonable budgets. I am hoping to stay under $10,000 with everything included (7 days in the resort, flight, wedding bands, photographer, reception, ceremony).. I can go a little over but i REFUSE to do anything more than $15,000. I just wish I knew how many people were coming so that I could have a set budget, My fiance decided to make his guest list longer by adding more family members that I never even met! Ahhh the stress....

Personally I think you could do koozies and tumblers because they're for different drinks, but the again I can almost ALWAYS rationalize why someone should buy something. wink.gif

the koozies...im not sure pple would get much use out of them. most resorts serve you everything, even the beer in a can. so that's something to think about.

We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
