      Can we ask for them to remove the red aisle runner? It doesn't go with my aqua and chartreuse theme :-)

          The first one is taffeta.  I tried it on after a few satin dresses and it was much lighter, but definitly not airy.  Some of those dresses were so heavy!  

          I'm always hot to begin with so add a heavy dress and I'll be a sweaty mess, haha.  

           

          Still waiting to hear back from bridal store about getting the sample of number 2 in.   

           

          Thanks for all the words of wisdom ladies, you rock!

            I hear you, girl. I am also curvy and 5'3 and once I saw the wonders the corset could do i was hooked. (and i'm in a heavy satin dress but i don't care! lol) I figure the sun will be down 1.5 -2 hrs after my ceremony and then it will be relatively cool outside next month. I have to practically wear stilts though because FI is 6'6 and a half! 

             

             



            Corsets are AMAZING!!!   Whoahhh 6' 6" get those stillettos ready, haha.

            Your wedding is next month already?!?!  Wow, it's so close, how exciting!

            I definitly don't want the red aisle runner.  I'm going to ask them to remove it and just have flower petals sprinkled.

            I looked at ordering one of those custom monogrammed aisle runners and brining or shipping it down, but I decided not to.  It wasn't worth the money to me.

              I would prefer to just do flower petals as well, but I am worried that walking in heels, it may be easier to walk down the runner..? I might be way off in that assumption, I just thought that when I looked at the pictures of the walk way it looked kinda cobble stone like..?  Either way, I am with you Lisa...I am not really into the red. I know they have different color runners because the pictures I saw of the beach set up for a ceremony they have different colored runners there....I think I might either bring my own or ask for a different color.

                By the way are you bringing a steamer or what were you thinking of doing for it?

                 

                Also to all ladies did any of you save a seat for the photographer at a table or no?

                  Oh crap!  I didn't even think about the actual rehearsal!  I have been more worried about where and how much a rehearsal dinner will cost.  LOL

                  That is super strange they don't do a run though.  When I went for my site visit there was a yoga class taking place in the Royal gazebo...

                  They did have chairs already set up though for a wedding they were having that day, so I'm sure at some point it should be free for a run...

                   

                  I don't want the red aisle runner either!  It will clash with my colors...but if they forgot to take it away or something I won't be too upset.

                   

                  I FINALLY ordered my STD's from Vistaprint last night!  I got the free priority shipping and they said they would arrive by next Monday.  If that really happens, that is freakin awesome!!!  I need to get them out asap!

                   

                  Happy Monday y'all :)

                    Lisa - I was just looking at your wedding page ( so cute btw!!) and I realized that we are moving onto Cozumel also!!

                     

                    Where are you guys staying when you go there? We are actually staying at this tiny little hotel that I found on TripAdvisor. It is like the exact opposite of the Royal, but I think it will be super romantic and I am excited!

                      thanks ladies I added a seat for the photog to and a meal :)

                       

                      so Runninbride got her dress steamed and said it was fine so I am just going to go with that :) I was just nervous that they take it away but she said after 24 hours to call and check on it.
