        I am going to get red pashminas for all of the females. I found a company on Etsy that will sale them for $10/ each if I order 24. Where did you order your's?

          Yes true hard liquors bring out the beast FI wants open bar so it'll be there..the DW is an AI so there will be all round liquors for those guest..

          I think grooms cakes are cute too.

           

          AI is the best way to go.. I was thinking about putting a note on the tumblers or something that says - "the drinks are on us, so drink up" HAHa

            Okay I just typed a really long reply below, sorry- hahah - to simply answer your question

             




            I am going to get red pashminas for all of the females. I found a company on Etsy that will sale them for $10/ each if I order 24. Where did you order your's?

            Hey - These were something I had on my maybe list to add - I wasn't really sure if they were worth it - how cold does it really get in St. Lucia.. right?   So I ended up seeing these ones on Ebay - they are 1.85 each and shipping is listed as 3.19 each.  so that made them only 5.04 each... Sounded like a good enough deal to make me say why not.   I had reservations about them being so inexpensive.. would they be cheap?  So as a "why not" effort I emailed the seller and asked if they would do a discount on the item and/or shipping if I were to by 12.

             

            The total for just the scarfs would have been 22 and just the shipping would have been 38 totaling - 60... they replied and said they would sell me 12 for 35 bucks (2.90 each WHAT?!?) - So of course I jumped on it.  That was like paying shipping and getting them for free (I LOVE FREE) hehe

             

            They came from china or something like that but I got them pretty fast.

             

            My WFT moment that I had when I first opened them were - the yellow was a bit darker then I thought it would be (or thought I had remembered it from the pics), there are flowers on them - that I thought were gray with a little purple.. there really isn't any gray at all.. just lots more purple, in different shades then I thought there would be, and finally they are much thinner then what I think of when I think pashmina.

             

            My feelings now are - the yellow is nice (it was just not what I remembered) - I like the purple flowers (The gray was the one thing that made me not sure if I wanted to get them in the first place) - Even though they are thinner then a "pashmina" they might actually be better for St. Lucia since I doubt a think scarf would be necessary there - and they are for sure something the girls can use in everyday wear.   Oh - and they are a really good size! 

             

            What are the ones you found on Etsy? I feel like you can do better then 10 bucks each!

                I had to take a break from the wedding planning. My invitations are out, people are paying deposits, I am still waiting for some rsvps, etc. Now its a waiting game. I need to order thank you cards, tumblers, business cards, pashimas, peacock feathers ( my theme is peacock- purple, blue, and green), decide on the menu, and other small things that add up. I might just wait to see what the holiday sales are and order everything in November and December. Now it is time to save, save, and save some more.
