    We played "somewhere over the ranbow/it's a wonderful world" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (I lived in Hawaii for 5 years). It is five minutes long, which seemed perfect. The signing of the legal documents takes a while so it was a nice element.

    A couple came up to us the next day and said they had seen our wedding (we never noticed anyone) but said that having all the music we did made it a lot nicer than another ceremony they had seen earlier in the week. It was a nice compliment after putting a lot of work into the ceremony.

    I didn't do programs. It's so short and our group was so small it didn't seem necessary to me. I had asked for an outline from Valeria and never got one. We added our vows and a reading but it was pretty awkward b/c Glorai was asking me during the signing of the documents what should be done next. Not a huge deal but it would have been better if it had been planned out in advance. I had forgotten to ask in the meeting. We went over it on the phone the day before but it wasn't totally smooth.

      Thanks Bre!! and how jealous am I that you lived in Hawaii!?!!!? I've been debating about the programs- it's been stressing me out a lil bit- so I'm leaning to just letting it be,not doing the programs- and just making sure the cd's with the music are clearly labeled and adding a song during the signing stuff... We are having a pretty small crowd- so it shouldn't make a difference...Thanks so much!!!
      PS- I told Valeria how excited I was after seeing your photos and she told me to tell you she was waiting for pix- so if you haven't sent her the link! :):):)-- how sweet is she!?! :)

              No, never heard of him. Is he someone related to the EDR?

                  So what did everyone decide on far as tipping the resort staff: wedding coordinator, judge & who else?

                    i have read the threads about tipping but am unclear as to if these people are tipping their personal WC's that they have hired, or the ones that are from the resort? again, does anyone know if we actually meet with Valeria or Monica once we get there or do we deal with other people from the resort once we are there? I have heard there are two men that help once we get to the resort and I would hate to bring a bath and body works gift bag for them!
