    I do actually! I'm going to be selling a bunch of stuff, just haven't had a chance to take inventory and post it all yet. But I have a ton of fans left because I bought 85 from another BDW bride and I only used 35. I'll sell them for $1 each (which is what I paid the other bride) and free shipping if you're in the US. Sometime this week I hope to post everything I have available.

      You're welcome! I was eager for pics and info when I was planning so I'm happy to share. And thanks for the nice comments on my pics!

       

      I don't have many pics of the cocktail tables. :( They were tall tables draped with white fabric and the hotel supplied clear vases then filled them with some of the flowers from the pomanders. You can sort of see it in this pic.

       

       

       

       

      And here's a pic that shows the dance floor (please excuse the groom dancing by himself. haha.) They set it up with the dance floor in the middle, 2 round tables on either side, the buffet at the back and the sweetheart table at the front (facing the buffet but separated by the dance floor) One note about the buffet: in addition to the wedding cake or cupcakes that you get, they also supply a whole table of desserts. It's really so much food. We didn't get to eat much of it but the guests said everything was really good. We sadly didn't get to taste any of the cocktail hour food and I wanted to try some of those things!

      Some do, but not all. :( Actually a lot of them have green ribbon because the other bride's colors were purple and green. I had to remove it and re-wrap in purple ribbon for mine. It was a pretty easy/fast process though!

        I really think it's a great idea  that you had and did to buy the plastic bins to transport all of your stuff and use those as "checked bags" and then just leave them there.  How exactly were you able to check them?  Did you have to do anything differently since it's a bin?  Thanks!

        The only thing I had to do differently was make sure I taped them up really well so that the lids didn't come loose and spill items everywhere. Other than that, I think the airlines are used to seeing all kinds of oddly shaped luggage so no one even questioned it! These are the bins I used: http://www.homedepot...04#.UboErpz9Us4

         

        I flew American and the dimensions of these were within the limits. I also weighed each one after it was filled with items to make sure it wasn't over the weight limit because I didn't want to pay extra at the check-in counter.
