Oh I defiantly get wanting your own children there!! I don't have any so I guess it was less of a must for me. I guess because we just want a fun family time for the wedding children are okay with us..however if we were planning for home only our own children would have been allowed. . They had dark brown, black, dark blue, white and grey for men's flip flops. I was so undecided on the colors. I ended up getting a mix of brown, blue, and black. I was able to get 10 pairs (only need 9) so I grabbed one pair of white as well. I didn't particularly like the grey ones - the white ones were kind of my favorite but I am having everyone wear white to the wedding and I didn't want them to think I was saying they MUST wear those.... Oy.. I just don't know LOL
Atleast you have a variety. .are you going to put in oot bags or have a flip flop station? I was thinking if having guest wear a certain color as well but not sure now.
I looked into Beaches-Turcs and Caicos but it was way to expensive (in my opinion). Since I'm getting married in February it's prime traveling time and I couldn't ask my guests to spend $3-$4K for 4 nights, well I could but I'm pretty sure instead of having 45-50 people I'd have about 4 haha. I tried to be conscious of the fact that our friends and family have a wide array of income, my FI and I are in a better place then most but we have two incomes, no kids and are in our early 30's. Plus we didn't want to pay to much for the wedding/stay because we're doing a 13 night honeymoon after our wedding!!! Yes I think Cancun will be nice, I haven't been to the resort I'm getting married at but I've been to that area several times and my sister used to have a time share there. As far as I'm concerned if it's warm, there is a beach and tropical drinks in February it's way better than being home in Boston!
Turks is a lot more expensive than some other islands however I did give guest 2 yrs of notice if our intentions of having a turks wedding. All that will be able to join us we are delighted to have those who are unable will be missed but it is what we want! 13 days is amazing wish we had that long. Where will honeymoon be? You are so correct warm..tropical drinks and beach we are all lucky will be fabulous:-)
