    Sorry, I logged off last night shortly after my last message.

    Our first dance was to At Last by Etta James. That would be a good one... not sure if it was just too slow.... and I know, predictable, but that's the only song that teared me up! Esp, since I really thought about Tim, "geez, finally I found you!!"

        Again the pics are perfect! If you dont mind me asking a few questions? Are those real flowers in your hair? Where did you get your earrings and shoes? I know ten questions but I just want to know where to look when it comes time to pick out those details. Thanks

            Not a problem! I don't mind sharing, most of the ideas I got evolved from other brides sharing.

            I did not want to mess with real flowers, but wanted something that looked real. I got the Classic gardenia set from Late Bloomer Boutique at http://store.lateblo.../clgabrset.html

            The earrings are Nadri, I found them at Nordstrom.
            Here's the link to it online in silver, I got them in gold from the store in NC.

            The shoes were also from Nordstrom in Champagne satin, and they were a STEAL!!

              Karla- Thanks for the quick response. I was looking at Nordstroms the other day at earrings. They have so many, they all started looking the same after a while! The only place I had searched for flowers was the craft store. But they didnt look as real as yours. Thanks again.

                You're welcome Natalie.

                If you have a Nordstroms nearby, go look at the Nardi earrings. They are absolutely beautiful in person. I was like a kid in a candy store when I saw them and could not decide which ones I liked best, esp since I was having a hard time finding earrings I liked. The crystals in them really shine and the designs are really intricate. Now that I think about it, I wished I had gotten a better close up of them in my pics. I absolutely loved them!

                  Karla, sorry I have questions for you as well.

                  1- Where did you get your fans from and did you have to tie on the blue ribbon at the bottoms of them? Did alot of people use them?

                  2- Who did your centerpieces?

                  3- Do you remember how many calla Lillies you had in your bouquet?

                  4- What time was your ceremony at?

                  Thanks. Again I loved all of your pictures and you looked beautiful!

                    Hi Natalie M! I see you've gotten quite hooked on the forum (like me) in the past couple of weeks! I don't mind answering your questions at all!!

                    1 - Got the 10" rafia fans from oriental trading company online
                    http://www.orientaltrading.com/
                    I got the ribbon and Michael's to match the BM dresses and wrapped and tied for a hours! Lots of people used them, it was VERY hot that day.

                    2 - The florist my wedding planner contracted was called Rossy. I wanted something really elegant and modern, I think they totally hit the nail on the head! Like I said... I loved all my flowers!!

                    3 - I think my bouquet has a dozen calla lilies.

                    4 - Ceremony was set to start at 4 PM.... but we did not get to the restaurant until 4:30 PM (my parents were late, older sister was freaking out looking for her hubby and baby, don't get me started!!)... ceremony started probably around 4:40 PM. We had to rush around to get pics at the beach though, since we were almost an hour behind schedule.

                      Thanks Karla, Ya i'm addicted to this forum now! I just feel if I'm not on I'm going to miss out on great info right away!! Thanks for anwsering all my questions. I was thinking about doing white calla lilies and i liked the amount you had, and I also liked the color. I'm so torn on what to do with flowers. If you don't mind can you give me an estimate on how much your flowers were.
                      I was debating between either the parasols or the fans. I still can't decide. I loved the ribbon on yours though. Do you have any thought on which one to go with? Thanks
