The fabric is organza so it's light, I've fallen in love with it - maybe ill have to get two!
Happy planning xxx
do you have a pic of your shoes perhaps? I don't know what i should get. originally i wanted bright yellow heels, but i feel like wedges might be better. but i'm not sure how they'll look with my dress...ugh

Palace Hotels have an amazing wedding department and it has all been so effortless so far. We are doing the complimentary package with the wedding ceremony on the rooftop Skyterrace and the cocktail hour/reception next to the rooftop pool.
As for color scheme we are doing white, sand and turquoise with pops of tropical flowers (tangerine, pinks, yellows)
I sent out e-save the dates in March to all our friends/family which had the basic save the date details with a link to our website. The website had all the information and details on how to book, etc. When booking with Sunwing Vacations through the tavel agent, my fiance and I only had to put down $200 each to hold a block of rooms/flights for up to 30 people and secured the group price rate. This hold was good for 60 days which gave our guests lots of time to make their $200 deposits to reserve their spot. After the 60 days was up we had a pretty good idea who was coming and who was not. A few stragglers booked after the deposit deadline and were still able to reserve their trip but the group rate had expired so they ended up paying a little bit more, but it all worked out fine.
Now that we have our "for sure" guests I am currently putting together a more formal invitation package to send out. I made my own tropical invites (http://i.imgur.com/47dXF09.jpg) and then bought these adorable candy tins (http://i.imgur.com/ed1V6J0.jpg?1) which i am filling with flip flop shaped candy to include in the envelopes (http://i.imgur.com/HFj5YNp.jpg) along with some more info on a sunset charter boat that we are booking and a panflet on the hotel. It is going to be a bit of an invite/"thanks for booking" package. I am going to be hand delivering them due to most of my guests living close by which will save on postage because the packages are a bit big
Congrats to all the other May 2014 brides!!
Hello - and welcome to the forum! Go you on 26 guests booking and congrats on your engagement and upcoming wedding.
