About AnnaReeves1

  1. We got married on a friday at 12, and there was only one other wedding at 4pm that day. We arrived on the Thurs, got married 8 days later, then had 6 days to relax, had to do it that way as some guest only came for 1 week. We saw weddings the weekend before ours where there was up to 4 a day, but only really on the Fri and Sat, the other days, although not a day ( apart from Sun) went by without a wedding, usually only 1 or 2, spaced out, per day

Most of the people in the suites around us, seemed to be brides that we had seem previously getting married, and we got the impression that they almost 'save' those rooms especially for wedding upgrades. crossing my fingers you get your upgrade!

    ROR wedding - 14th March - PICS!

    Thanks for the lovely comments! The electricity saga was quite funny, I had already decided nothing was going to spoil my day, so when it went off, I was not bothered! My sister had spent ages practicing curling my hair with tongs, and she was stressing that it would have all been for nothing if the electric didn't come back on.... but it did, and we were able to get everyone ready on time! My bouquet was one of the free ones, there was only a choice of the carnations or daisys in a variety of styles. I had to pay for the bridesmaids boquets - $30 each. I had seen some lovely roses ones, but as they have to be imported they were very expensive, so I just went with the simple carnations, you can ask for any colours and they will try to accomodate
  6. Hi, Hope this link works! Wedding was fantastic - despite there being no electricity in the resort until 30 mins before the wedding! Snapfish: Share:Registration Anna
  7. We didn't choose to have a song for the bridesmaids, I had 3 'grown up' and 2 'flower girls' so by the time the two little ones (aged 2 and 2 1/2) had walked across the sand, and up the aisle to scatter petals, a whole song had played! I have no idea what was playing as we signed the register, I guess I was too caught up in the moment!
  8. On the way!! So many things to write about, am just uploading photos as we speak for you all to see!
  9. Hi You look great! I actually saw your wedding, it was a few days before mine, and (hoping you didn't mind) I watched from the back with one of my friends, and we were both all teary when we saw you. Your dress was fabulous!
  10. We had Eric Clapton - you look wonderful tonight as the bridesmaids, and my dad and I were walking across the sand to the gazebo ( this later became our 'first dance' song at the AHR) and then as I was walking up the aisle with Dad, Elvis' I cant help falling in love with you

    guests able to hear vows @ the ROR??

    Hi, We were married at the beach gazebo, no mics, and still those at the back were able to hear! ( we have 40 guests!) It was a very still day with no breeze, so we may have been lucky!

  13. Ladies, I have tried e-mailing chandyln with this, but she has not got back to me yet and we leave in 8 days!!! My bridesmaid has a 8 month old and a 2 and a half year old, she just wants to know if there is a shop in the hotel/town where you can buy babies nappies, swim nappies and SMA bAby milk formula I was wondering if any or you know if these are available in the shops? Thank you!!
  14. Hi If you are worried that the Maggie dress is to 'busy' then have you looked at the jessica Marie? I have posted the link below, it takes away the frills and stuff, but IMO ( as it is my dress!!!!!) it is lovely
