Here is a quick mock up I made yesterday. Otherwise I'd probably just go for either white lilies or calla lilies and still wrap the stem in the same fashion.

Hey Carina.

 

I love these flowers. My issue with using the flowers from the resort is that you just don't know what you will end up with. I'm sure they have options and you would be happy with something if you do choose to go this route but if you want to be sure they look like you had invisioned I would go with these. They are great.

 

I am doing the same thing. I had a lady make my bouquets (currently being made) and I am going to put them in tall mason jars for the centerpieces. I'm also getting small mason jars and putting water and a floating tea light in them. I'm going to run the little mason jars down the tables without the centerpiece, as there will be only one centerpiece per palapa but three or four tables. If that makes sense.

 

Hope this helps.

Ours is this Saturday. Everything is set and ready to go. Hopefully everything comes together.

 

Waterproof labels is a great idea! Can't wait to see them all put together.

 

We got the guys pants. You can see the front and the back of them. They are wearing their shirts too. I don't have a picture of all three of them together. Two was the best I had. lol I was a little worried about putting a linen shirt and a light dress pant together but I love the way it looks. I'm hoping for them to wear a white dock shoe or a nice flip flop.

 

Let me know how yours goes Alley :)

 

The guys attire looks great, I finally just ordered the men's attire which will be:

 

 

 

Andrew, my FI is wearing the same but with this jacket:

I am SOOO happy the guys stuff is now taken care of!  They just need sandals, which I don't really care if they match or not as long as they are black!!!

 

I ordered from Island Importer, I will update once they arrive on how they are!

I was looking on Island importer and I found they had really nice black flip flops for $30 I'm not sure if it's the look you are after but you might want to check them out. Maybe they can add them to your order so you don't have to pay shipping twice.

 

I will look for that linen jacket on ebay. I'm looking for a different colour. Hopefully I can find it. Love the blue. It matches perfectly with your colour theme. Can't wait to see it all come together.

Alley and Kay - have so much fun with your Jack and Jills! I have never heard for these before coming on here... those are just not something we do on the eastcoast - but seems like a lot of fun! Also love both of your guys outfits! Very nice! Last week my parents were visiting and we hit up the Banana Republic Outlet and found my dad a really nice pair of linen pants (pretty much exactly what I was looking for) and the best part... they were 10$ regular like 90$. I was sooo happy! They actually look very similar to the ones you bought Kay!

Jolene and Lydia. Have a fabulous time. Try not to stress and like Carina, I can't wait to hear how it went.

 

I will definitely take lots of pictures. I've invited my photographer so hopefully she can come and take some really great pictures. I'll be sure to report back. Can't wait.

 

WOW what a steal. Pants for $10. LOVE it. Good find.

Hi Alley,

 

I know I love those sandals... but there's a lot going on with the guys right now and ya.... lol didn't want to spend the money buying them for them.   Long story.  Good luck they did have different colours of the blazer

Hey Kay.

 

Totally understand. Hopefully everything works out.

 

I'm going to go and check it out now. That's awesome they have different colours. Did you buy it from a certain seller?

Sounds very nice! Make sure to have someone take lots of photos of the palapas set up at your wedding so you can share with me so I can see how it would be set up (if its possible!). I really I think I will bring the flowers (well they are coming with me anyway since they will be my centerpieces) and I will order the fresh flowers... really I just want white flowers anyway so I think the fresh flowers will look nicer then the faux ones. But at least I'll have a back up if it happens that I don't like them. I think at the end of the it won't really make a difference to me... flowers were one thing that I didn't care that much about.
