      That sounds like a great idea! 

      Did you get a DJ for your reception? We are going with DJ Doremixx because his reviews are so good. I just have to get my FI to pick out his attire and we are all set!

        actually, we just have a group of 26 so we are going with using our IPODS and amp system.

        my FI is very set on wearing shorts!! ~ I'm ok with this, it is very "him" ;)

        we picked out some nice linen shorts and shirts from  TommyBahama.com. Check it out!!

          We did the same thing with our ipod and it was great! Had 24 people too!

           

          Do you and your FI know that men have to wear long pants for dinners at the resorts? I don't think he will be allowed to wear shorts at your reception :(

            We did do OOT bags and they went over great! HOWEVER, if I were to do it again I would just buy one or two items like say the little sunscreen and aloe, tie them together with some raffia and attatch them to the info cards(flight info, resort dress code, local things to do, time of welcome dinner, etc) we handed out a few weeks before flying down.  I think a lot of the stuff never got used and I would have loved to put that money towards something like what angi111111 did!

We are doing a Catamaran Snorkeling trip the day before the wedding. I ordered some cute beach themed photo albums and a candle for each couple to receive at the welcome dinner. Less to carry and worry about when we get there...My FI was all for this idea instead of bags ;) so, it made him Happy!

              Have any Brides gotten a videographer? We are considering but the ones on Lomas website are not that great looking.

                We went with DJ Doremixx as well, but I was sad to find out he was not on our list of
                approved vendors" so we have to pay the $800 fee to have him at our reception. It turned out though that he was still much cheaper than the "approved vendors", even after we considered the additional fee!

                      I choose blue tulle to decorate the gazebo and decided to go with uncovered chairs... I looked at a lot of pictures and got some other girl advice and decided to spent the $$$ on other things instead of chair covers....we really want the beach feel so I decided against a runner and I am doing just rose petals on the sand and two flower corsages on the gazebo with a white linen table cloth on the small table under the gazebo with matching flower arrangement and sand ceremony vases. The WC said they will move the flowers to the cocktail and dinner area after ceremony....
