    Cool, yeah we're doing the same thing. Question, in your registry, did you post $$$$ contribution, or actual activites & gifts for your gifts to choose from? Right now we have $$$$ contribution as an option, but we kind of feel like this is too straight foward about the whole thing. Any suggestions about how to go about it? Also, should I go through Lomas for picking things?

It is helpful to have to put towards any of those things. I had my TA book my hair appointments and my massage. The WC will but you have to pay when you pay your bill 30 days prior when doing that. We had resort credits and cash from the gifts purchased from honeymoonwishes.com so we just paid at check out.

        Hey Tracy-- hope you are doing well! :)--- I haven't gotten the photo album or CD -- only the slideshow.. But I sent in the selections for the slideshow early, bc we are sending out a few annoucements with the slideshow link on it... Hopefully the album and CD will come in the next few weeks-- I'm slightly ADD about the photos- hehe....

          We did both. We did massages and then just different dollar amounts. The nice thing about it they will direct deposit the cash into your account then you can use as you like. We did mostly dollar amounts. We didn't get alot from that but enough for us both to get the couples romantic massage. That was the main thing we wanted. Plus I had a small shower anyways. You could go through Lomas if you want but either way I think is a great way of getting something nice for your honeymoon/wedding.

            I'm doing pretty good. And you? That's a good idea with sending the link to friends and family. I have to sit down and figure out which photos we want. Did you get all of them put on a cd or just the ones from your slide show? Hope your having a great summer. Keep in touch

              I have a question about the cake cutting, when did everyone do this, on the beach right after the ceremony or did you wait for the reception? Also, did anyone do the champagne toast?

                We did ours at our reception-- and we didn't have a special champagne toast--they had champagne in nice glasses for Vince and I- and it took about 3 minutes for the staff to have drinks in everyone else's hands-- so Vince's brother did a toast right before cake cutting....

                  Did do ladies do a bouquet toss? How about the Garter thing where hubby takes it off your leg? If so, when did you do this? Would you mind sharing the song you played while these 2 things were being done. Thank you :)

                    I didn't do a bouquet toss-- I didn't want to give up my bouquet! - I think everyone just thought I was kinda drunk- but I was serious! :)- we put my bouquet in vases in our room and enjoyed the bouquet the rest of the week!

                    We had our photographer for only 5.5 hours- and since we had before pictures, the ceremony, our cocktail party, dinner, then the reception at Tucanes- he was only at the reception for the first 30 minutes. So when we got to reception, we did the toast, cake cutting, then first dances, then the garter....so he could get pictures of all-- then rest of reception- we played our playlist and everyone danced and drank.....

                    Our song for the garter thing-- marvin gaye's "let's get it on" .....

                    here are a few garter pictures from reception at Tucanes...

                      Does anyone know if the Health bar used to be called El Cotorres? My coordinator said that on the map it is called something different, but hasn't told me what it used to be called, I just need to know so I can point my guests in the right direction.
