      Thank You very much! The pearl letters on the ribbon are self adhesive but I was concerned they might come off from being shipped and handled so I decided to dab a little glue on them before putting them on the ribbon.... then of course some glue would ooze out the sides a little (no matter how little I tried to use)   so I had to put the glue on with a toothpick then with a different toothpick clean up the edges....... in the long run I am sure this was a good idea but DAMN did it suck!!   ahaha  Don't even get me started on  the wonderful time I had tying the ribbons wacko.gif I am glad they are finished for Sure!! I think for my invites I am just going to call people and be like "so yeah we invite you - you coming or what?"    smile124.gif

      Hahaha yeah right phone call. .see toothpicks glue I don't think I could've done it..what kinda invites did you say your doing to top these off?

      I'm so cheaply I made my STD on shutterfly and then added a stick on magnet tape strip to the back. Lol. It'll do

      Cheaply works out well...lol

            Yes I totally went to deals and bought the arm rings for my toddler RB and FG, for my other FG i'm thinking one of the inflatable lounge chairs for the water but I might want it for myself! LOL

             

             

            So I found out my wedding package includes a private rehearsal dinner for 20 people. I originally was going to reserve a spot at the japanese restaurant for 24 people but Im thinking maybe I should take advantage of the free rehearsal dinner with a set menu and do the japanese restaurant another night with the people that won't be at the rehearsal dinner (since it would only be immediate family and the bridal party)

            What do you girls think?

              if it's included i say go for it. would it be the night before the ceremony? and then the other people are staying after the wedding ? so you have time to do it another night?

                I think my mini freak-out moment got my FI moving ! LOl

                 

                He actually sat with me last night to go over details! We looked at photographers, figured out an invitation design and picked out our colors! Cutest moment was when I asked "what should our colors be?" He looks at me with the most perplexed serious face "we have to pick out colors???" I start cracking up and he goes "I'm sorry!! I had no idea! Really! I don't know these things!!"

                 

                Luckily I don't mind if he doesn't care about colors, flowers or invites but he actually gave a lot of input which i'm happy about.

                 

                I love bright colors so was thinking along the lines of fuschia or coral but they are "too pink" for him. He wants blue and I half jokingly said "and orange?" Half joking because blue and orange are the Mets team colors and we are die-hard baseball and Mets fan. But I do also love orange cause it's so bright.

                 

                I google inspiration boards for him (and again he was like "whoa, what are inspiration boards?" lol) and we decided to do lighter shades of blue and orange to fit the tropical destination ... so to be fancy we're calling it "teal and tangerine" lol

                  I could do the japanese dinner the sunday night, after the wedding which is on Saturday.

                   

                  I'm also doing welcome drinks with everyone on Friday night before the wedding so the rehearsal dinner would be immediately after the welcome drinks. Im thinking maybe people would be too drunk to care that it's just immediate family anyway and we could meet up after the dinner since there is nightly entertainment at the resort. Although I imagine I'll be calling it quits early that night so I can be well rested for the wedding the next day.

                      I love this! We're doing purple, aqua and silver. The idea is to have stronger and softer versions of each color (e.g. purple, lavender).  However, I've been wanting something a little more rich than the aqua, and I think teal might be the ticket!
