Re: More than 1 Dress

I'm having more than one dress as well even though it's a destination wedding. Although this wasn't on purpose - I had bought a simple dress and then larger decided on a mermaid dress so I didn't wanna waste the first dress or sell it either :D

Re: Silk Robes

I've been to 3 stores in the past week and they all had it. The tag says $24-something but it scans at $15. Some stores had t in their 'sale' racks so it may have run out of your particular store?

Byo alcohol?

Does anyone know if the outrigger let's you BYO spirits for the wedding reception?
Half our guests are non drinkers, the other half are spirit drinkers so I'm thinking of having bar tab instead of beverage package and buying alcohol from duty free.
