Thanks, I love the stackable ring style. Of course I couldn't wait for the first year anniversary band and when Nathan gave me the other ring for Christmas, I thought perfect this would make an awesome stackable ring...lol

 

Yeah I figured it would be nice that people can all share their photos and it don't have to be Facebook. Be nice for other options for people that don't like to share on Facebook. I know a couple of our guests already hate posting anything on Facebook. So at least this is something else so I could see the pics.

Sorry my photos ended up turning sideways. I loaded them up the right way. Oh well guess because it as from my phone, it was being stubborn.

I love the stackable idea. Not sure it could work with mine given the twisting of the band already. I know I want one for the other side but I kinda want it now so I can get them sautered (sp?).

Mine is an embraceable so my e-ring already sits down in the middle with a band on either side. But I was thinking some kind of eternity ring for the renewal given everything we've been through. Doug has lost so much weight that his wedding ring doesn't fit anymore. We have to have it sized but it's tungsten so they've said its a one shot deal. If he gains weight back his ring will be toast. I was tempted to just let him keep it on the bigger finger that he has it on now and buying him a new one for October. I found a site that has them at a very reasonable price so definitely thinking a lot about it.

Well just sent all my paper work to the resort. ITs tough because I am not having my reception there but wanted to replace the dinner reservation for the wedding night for another night before hand for the welcome dinner. So I was writing notes all over the place on the forms and again in the email. I hope they understand what I am trying to say and request because half the time I don't know what I am trying to say. Anyway wait to hear back I spose.

So girls I figured I would try to cut down on some decorating costs for the boat. I originally had Chinese lanterns hanging from around the boat, table cloths, napkins, and centre pieces ordered from Carribean Celebretions. This quote came to $800 and change.
Since I updated I cancelled the Chinese lanterns and the centre pieces. Instead I am using the bouquets and my genius friend came up with the idea that if I have left over tumblers (which I do) to use them to hold the centre pieces and just put some rock in it for weight. Perfect size to what I was needing too. So now all I have to get is rocks. So since cancelling the original quote, my quote is now $181. Not bad hey?
Here is a pic of the bouquet in the tumbler (without rocks) and now I have to peel the stickers off four of them because that's the amount of centre pieces needed. Hopefully I won't have trouble with this.

Awesome idea. Sad it wasn't mine hahah jk!!! I would try to heat the labels a little with a blow dryer. May help. I did that to get the original sticker off that came on them when I purchased them

Ok I have a silly question. Why do you want to take the labels off? I think they turned out great first of all, and what better way to tie everything together than to just leave the labels on? Sorry - I just think it would be neat on the tables.

I have thought about that just to save me the trouble but still undecided on it. I just don't know how it would look. Mind you I am not overly picky but I am with certain things.
Hmmm???

I think it's a good idea but you may need something other than rocks to weigh it down. They may clash. Michael's and dollarama has lots of ideas for alternatives.
