  1. Jen as I told you last night our house is split - Sean votes #2 and I vote #1 (well for now at least - before I officially vote I want to see #2 in person). Although I love the detailing on dress 2, something about #1 just shouts "jen" to me... It seems to have a classic but sexy bride look and I don't think the pictures do the lace or the sparkle justice. That being said dress two is beautiful and unqiue and has the lace-up back I know you wanted plus fits you so well which makes it difficult to pass up. Either way you can't go wrong... they are two gorgeous dresses, just two different
  2. I wore Maggie's Treasure for my wedding and loved it! A corset back was a must in my search... and the dress felt so light! Plus I loved the illusion train - perfect for a beach wedding. I bought my dress for ~$500 from a local bridal salon. Of note, I called most of the salons in my state that carreid Maggie Sottero to check on prices. The one I bought from had it listed for $200 cheaper than everywhere else. Not sure if it was a mistake or what, but its worth making a few phone calls! As an added bonus it fit absolutley perfectly - no alterations were needed! THe corset made the
  3. Ours were little circles (probably dime size-ish) that we bought from Michael. We put them in a little plastic snack bag with a note saying to keep your room cool. And then a sentace explaining they can put it over the sensor on the balcony door frame when the door is open to keep the AC on. Of note - you can hear a little click when you get it in the right place - and obviously can hear the AC still on. Plus I would add a note to consider taking it off when you are leaving the room - or provide multiple magnets - because several of our guests lost theirs when the maid closed teh balcon

Every time I tried to call or e-mail her a question, she was out of office for several days. PLUS, she told me that they don't like to book the RIU, which is what I really wanted, and tried to convince me that
  5. I've recieved some questions from several individuals... and since some of them are repeated I thought I would just copy and paste some of the answers here for anyone else who is curious: 1) Do you have templates of the documents you gave your guests about the resort, your wedding...etc that you would be willing to share? I *think* i still have them and will email them to you who have asked. I should have my invitations/std letter, our welcome letter, timelines, and programs saved. For information on the resort itself I mostly used my wedding webpage. For more details look at: Our We

  8. Beautiful pictures! I love the overlooking shots as you walked down the aisel. Very cool!
  9. I would advise checking back in with them from time to time or watching the site closely. When I went to book my wedding last year for this January 5th... I was told that booking wouldn't open up until end of March or early April. At the time I was a bit inpatient and worried that I wouldn't get the time I wanted so I emailed them weekly and was told the same thing over and over. I was quite suprised (and a bit mad) come February 20th when all of a sudden I heard other brides on here were booking. My date/time was available when I went to their website so there wasn't a major issue... b
  10. Everything looks so perfect! and you're flowers are gorgeous!!! Plus... don't you just love that tree? It was our favorite... we made the whoel bridal party climb it for a picture. haha
  11. I had 3 bridesmaids... 2 of them ordered their dresses at the same time from our local bridal store. The bridal store had warned me that colors could vary if we didn't order all the dresses together - however at the time it wasn't possible and I didn't want to wait any longer. In the long run my third bridesmaid ended up ordering hers online through houseofbrides.com as it ended up being way cheaper than ordering it from her bridal store in Canada. She had no problems with ordering the dress and the shipping was on time. When we compared the dresses from online and the store... th
  12. Thanks everyone! We had a fabulous time. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I can try and help.
