  1. My mom wore a Kirstie Kelly for Disney collection dress (Kirstie Kelly for Disney Fairy Tale Weddings - Maidens) Style - KKSB4 MA2012 (Sleeping Beauty collection). Here are some actual pic's of her though: It took about 6 months to get in! Longer than my Maggie!

Those are the salons I know carry the Maggie lines :-)
  3. Ok, sorry about the delay in posting pic's of this Ireland dress. Again, I incorporated the toga straps from the Maggie SD5230 and attached a silk/feather flower (with a four leaf clover in the middle b/c it was St Patty's day that we got married)! I do live in Dallas and there are a few boutiques in the area that carry Maggie. Mocking Bird Bridal (off Mockingbird and 75), Lulu's in Uptown (off Routh St), and then Ocone's in Fort Worth (that's where I originally tried it on at and fell in love with it). Here we go: (My mom is wearing the Kirstie Kelly for Disney Dress) (Our Tres Leches Sand Castle Cake) I hope that helps...I am DEFINITELY NOT a model NOR even close to a model size. I'm short too at 5'3".
  4. Can you post some pic's since no one has seen this on a "real" person yet? :-P

For $36 I could buy a bad ass boom and still own it afterward LOL What fees for hooking up your iPod? If you don't what good are the speakers ... like for your reception? I don't get it ... why would that cost more? Thanks for the help. *SmiLes* Suzanne The iPod docking station is in every room and attached to the wall (can't take it out of its place next to the bed)...I don't know why they were trying to charge her $365 on top of the $150 rental for the speaker system. I was only charged $150 and it covered the entire speaker system for the entire night (until 11pm)...but I had my reception and dinner both on the beach. The iPod was used for music after the mariachi band (cocktail hour)... We found that using the iPod was great b/c you could change the songs and volume with ease and didn't have to "manage" it... The only thing I can think of for the additional charging is b/c she had her reception inside the Seaside Grill and they wanted to charge for having to play thier music instead of what they normally play (like an incovienence fee or something)...but I don't know. (She got married the day after me, so I saw her there).

I have read the order of ceremony on page one, my FI and I have written our own vows but, will they still use something standard for us when we exchange the rings? 1. Yes, as Sunbride said, they have someone in control of the music 2. Rehearsal ceremony - no ...but keep on them b/c she asked when I wanted mine, I said Monday (wedding on Tues) and we never had one...so I was nutz about what to do, how fast to walk, etc! 3. We wrote our own vows too, but "Mexican Law" prevails and you have to listen to her read the document...then you can say your own vows (I chose to take away the microphone at this point b/c I wanted it to be more intimate and be between him and me...it wasn't for everyone to hear)...so to better answer your question: you have to listen to the judge read the marriage license (no reading out of the bible like a traditional wedding) document, but you add your own vows (or sand ceremony) in there too! :-)

Now my planner is saying she doesn't think we need it but the resort website says it is required and I'm panicking that I'm not going to be able to get this done before we leave on April 19th! Any advice is welcome! Thanks! The "Apostille" is simply a fancy word for "certified" or stamped by an official government...if you have a certified copy of your birth certificate from your local county office, then this is perfectly fine for what they need. As far as needing divorce decree's (if you have been previosly married), then the wedding coordinators are looking for name changes...basically, if you changed your name from your "given" name to something else, then there is more paperwork involved; but if your name is still the same as your birth certificate, then that is all you need (well, you'll also need your traveler card (which is given at the airport) and your passport. I had Landy with us and she just needed our passport and traveler card to make a photo-copy of and didn't even look at our birth certificates or divorce decree's b/c neither of our names were ever changed...so it I feel ya about bein' stressed out, but once you're down there, everything will be OK! :-) I hope this helped :-)

No, there is one in the room wired to the wall...I meant for the reception dinner, there was the choice of the DJ (using a CD or his music) or just using the iPod...if you use the iPod, the DJ shows you (or whomever is working the music) how to work the stereo and all you have to do is plug in the iPod :-)

Now I really don't know what to do!!! Also, did you bring your marriage licence home with you or will they ship it to you. I'm not sure if I want to leave it there!!! Thanks! If you use your iPod for the dinner, then all you have to do is hook it up and push play and in every room there are iPod docking stations to play it! :-) I brought our marriage license home b/c we were going to get it "Apostled" and translated here in Dallas instead of paying them the fees and waiting the months to get it back...but that's really your choice as it would cost less here at home to get that paperwork done...plus you have the license in hand

Does anyone know if I use the Caribbean Trio for the cocktail hour will I still have to pay the $365 if I use their speaker system just at the reception. I want to use my ipod but a mic is really important. 3. For the girls that have already been through this, was it easy to get your decorations back? I have to get married at home a week after I get home from Mexico and I would like to be able to use some of the decorations twice...that way I only have to pay for them once ) Thanks for any help!! 1. The hair flowers are $6 extra...but they give you like 5-6 flowers! You would pay that in the total price when you pay the wedding. So no worries on that :-) 2. I only paid $150 for the speaker system rental for the entire night (until 11pm) and we had the Caribbean trio and then used our iPod for the dinner & dancing...on the beach :-) 3. The wedding coordinator will ask you if you want the decorations back and they will deliver them back to your room that same night :-)

I don;t think I really need the speaker for the cocktail hour but the Ipod Docking Station would be enough. BUT if I am having the coctail hour on the beach anyway...I imagine there will be music there anyways...no? Any insight or advice from past brides would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks! It's a flat rate of $150 for the speaker "rental" until 10-11pm (that's what we were charged)...but we had our reception and dinner on the beach...so if you have it in the restaurant, then that may be the reason for the additional charges :-)
