    Hey Trisha! You definitely won't regret it!

    Don't worry about your guest list being too big either. They say you can expect like 1/2 of the people you invite to actually come to the wedding. Plus, you can inform them in the invites that you will be having a reception locally sometime after you return.

    Good Luck with all the planning!!

      Hey girls. You definitely can't please everyone. DH's family was SOO against a DW, but we did what our hearts wanted for our wedding day. And in the end DH's parently actually really enjoyed themselves and even said the wedding was great.

      LC has the ability to turn non DW believers into believers

        I am starting to think about what I want to do for the table cneterpieces and wanted get some info. I know that Las Calentas provides linens but I am assuming they are just white. Anyone know what they do have available other than that if anything? I don't want anything over the top (or anthing that will take up too much space in the suitcase) but want something colorful and fun but don't want to buy something that they might already have available. Guess I could also email Kelley, but thought I would check with all of you first (I tried a search in the forum but wasn't very successful).

          You are all SO right. As long as Vanessa and I are there the day will be perfect. It's our wedding, and while I would love to have the ceremony and reception bulging with guests that isn't the most important part of the day. I have my heart set on LC and that's where we're going to do it. I think, in the end, we will be happily surprised at how many people actually show up. I am back to being insanely, ridiculously, euphorically excited about being a Las Caletas bride! The economy does suck right now...but what could be less romantic than planning one of the biggest days of our lives around Capitol Hill?...
          Not gonna do it.
          And you know what? There are always going to be people who complain. It's human nature and an area in which my family specializes in (kidding). I know they'll be happy on the day of and that's what counts.
          Totally have the wedding you want! You have to ask yourself, how many of the complainers would rearrange their plans for you, you know? Probably none of them. And I agree that you may be surprised by the amount of people who turn up. Best wishes and no regrets

          Last I checked the tablecloths were white but they had a variety of runners. The newer brides probably have more info :)

            Thanks! I will have to email Kelley to see if they have orange. Then I can start searching for something fun for the centerpiece.

              Hi there!
              We didn't bring anything at all except our table names. Everything else you see on the tables came from them! They have lots of colors of table runners to choose from. I picked blue and pink during the walk-through on the day of the wedding, right after lunch and before I went to get ready. Keep it simple... it all looked gorgeous.

                hey girls, i searched my emails for table runner colors and here's what I found. Keep in mind this was what they had in May

                What color choices are there for the table runners?

                I have a chocolate brown, beige, fuscia, orange, yellow, red, bright blue, tourquouise and probably by the time of your wedding green. I can also rent them if your color is not present in this choice.

                  Awesome - thanks Tara! I think we will either do turquoise or fuchsia :)

I love LC and we'll have a big reception back in Mpls once we return! We may be there only days apart!
