      The aisle one's are very pretty. Have you asked how much it would be to have them do this? I feel like they might charge you a ton for having to tie the ribbons to the chairs (I guess depending on how many chairs you have...). Something to consider...

        Sorry my iphone was acting up when i typed this earlier today, this is what i wanted to let you guys know....


        It is very rewarding, we did the same thing. I wouldn't change it for the world, we had the best time on are wedding day, who gets to swim and relax on there day, with your closet family and friends. You will really enjoy yourselfs, everything went perfect for us and who doesn't love the beach. We had so many compliments on everything and how fun it was. This is the way to go!!!! :)

        It's such an accomplished feeling knowing that you aren't relying on anyone. My FI and I are doing this 100% on our own and it feels great! All my friends that have gotten married have had these lavish $40K weddings that daddy paid for and it baffles the crap out of me! Yes our wedding is very small and the costs are waaay low but I can honestly say it will probably so much prettier than all the others I've been to (hoping the weather keeps.)  Way to go for doing it by yourself!

          heydenay-

          I paid for our bridal's party's dresses and got them each a small Coach clutch (the outlets are amazing! I got 4 clutches originally $85+ for about $35. My husband paid for his guys Kennth Cole suits from Macy's, so he didnt get them anything else. I think the excursions are plenty! Thats such a great idea, because who really needs more stuff?! I am definitely a fan of gifting experiences over things.

           

          You and 2 other people will have transportation to the ceremony location, literally 5 minutes before your ceremony starts. Everyone else is forced to try and hitch a ride on a passing cart. It was about 50/50 for us finding a cart when we needed one. I had read on this board that one Bride and Groom paid a shuttle driver a good tip and he drove the bridal party all around to take photos all over the resort... we tried this and he basically drove away as soon as we handed him the tip...

          Hi guys....mine is sneaking up soon Aug4th...and I was wondering what you all are doing for bridal party gifts. My FI and I and taking the bridal party on seperate excursions (guys/ girls only) the day of the rehersal dinner..... but I kinda feel like we need to give them something as well....

          Also For the ladies that have gone.....what did you do about transportation to the ceremony site for the bridal party? How early were you allowed to visit the reception/ceremony sites to "Set up" stuff on the tables and such

           

          THanks :)

                My father in law passed away this past Saturday which in itself is terrible, but we were also scheduled to go on our honeymoon in 10 days. My husband doesnt think he would be ina good place mentally to honeymoon and I completely agree, but now we are stuck trying to find a place to go, preferably not in Mexico, later in July. The place we were originally booked (thank goodness we got insurance) is sold out that week, so we looked at our second choice Secrets Wild Orchid. If we book through DW.com, the cheapest/worst room is $3216, with the mid level room being $3966. If we book on the Secrets website, we pay $2900 for the mid level room, but there is a chance that we could get there and they could move us to a lower level room or even the sister resort next door. I kinda think we should take the chance and book through the site because the worst that can happen is we pay the $2900 and the demote us to the worse level room, so we will still be paying less than DW.com quoted us for that room level. Plus we have the chance of getting the better room. So 1) what is everyone doing for their honeymoon? and 2) What would u do in this situation?

                  I agree with Murmel! :) The whole thing is nice and unique, though! :)

                    Nikki,

                     

                    First, I LOVE your pictures!!! :) BEAUTIFUL.

                     

                    Second... I'm so sorry to hear about your father in law...

                     

                    Also, since you're planning a bit last minute now, maybe you'll be able to take advantage of some of the super cheap specials that cheap carribean offers? I get their e-mails all the time!

                     

                    If you do decide to go to Secrets with those rates, I'd have to say I'd wing it and take the cheaper rate. I don't know how the sister resort is, but as long as it is comparable, it might be worth it. On the other hand, it is your honeymoon, so you want it to be super special... if you're not comfortable with the worst case scenario, I wouldn't do it, because think of how dissapointed you'd be. :( So sorry you're dealing wiht all of this!

                     

                    -Chris
