    scottwashington - Stacey Clarke and Misha Earle both seem to be highly reccommended photographers. I am using Stacey. If you think you really might end up wanting Sun Gold, I would check your date with them now. I checked with them 10 months before our date and they were already booked. Only 7 days left until we leave! 10 days until wedding day!

What is everyone doing? So confused... I was worried/confused about the same thing. I just checked with our photographer on what would be best. We were told sunset would be around 6:20 or so and our photographer thought 5 pm would be best for the wedding. She said the sun would be at a good angle for ceremoney shots and we would have plenty of time to get other shots in before sunset, and of course beautiful sunset shots. Hope this helps!

    Hi Ladies, I started packing tonight! We leave in 12 days. I think all we are going to carry on is our wedding clothes, rings, camera, and netbook. We have been planning this wedding for a year, I can't believe we are 12 days away!! I ordered my boudoir photo book last night from blurb.com. It arrives in 1 week. I hope I can intercept it before FH sees it. Hope all your last minute details are coming together!

    autjo- haha! I literally did wake up at 3 am and panic!! For the three weeks prior I was all about working out and eating lite, doing the whole high protein thing. Then my stress response was just to eat cake. It's so funny that you said you cried while watching Say Yes to the Dress - I did that just this afternoon!! I was like "WTF is wrong with me?" I guess its just a combination of stress, nerves, and excitement.

    OMG, I leave for Jamaica in less than 3 weeks! In 21 days I will be married! It is approaching so fast. Here are a few reviews ... HairComesthebride.com - haha, I laugh everytime I type that! I ordered a flower hair pin on a Wednesday and it arrived on Friday - that's paying for standard shipping. I chose the gardenia and it is exactly as it appears online. I have no complaints, plus the FH loved it. They have lots of other hair pieces - tiaras, veils, headbands, combs, etc. Weddingfactorydirect.com - I ordered some "bling" for my bouquet here. I had been endlessly searching for a letter 'B' rhinestone brooch for my bouquet stem and found a good option here. The upside is that the letter is on a pick so it can be used on the stem or mixed in with the flowers. The price couldn't be beat - $12.50 - it looks expensive, not cheap and fake! My one complaint - standard shipping was as much as the item itself. It weighs nothing, I can't figure out why shipping cost so much. But again, I ordered it on a Wednesday and it arrived that Saturday. Ashley Brooke Designs - she designs custom stationary and whether you need thank you cards or invitations I would highly reccommend her! She designed an announcement for us complete with a drawing of me and my honeybear in front of the gazebo. She was a delight to work with, and she was very prompt in responding to emails. Overall, the entire process from start to finish was about 2 months, it could have been much faster but I was usually the delay in responding. Her price for custom work was VERY reasonable. Our announcements arrived yesterday with an 8x10 keepsake to be framed. I will post a copy after we return. Also, I did my boudoir photos this past Sunday. I got a teaser pic from my photographer. It's on my blog, check it out and let me know what you think! I am starting to get nervous plus I am just so excited at the same time! I am not a super emotional person normally, but lately I find that when I think about our day I get all kinds of emotional. Today I was thinking about what I was going to write to my honey in his card and I started crying! (note: I am not a crier at all!) Anyone else experiencing this?

Mastistyle - What's your date? How's planning coming? BTW I'm the worst, I bought a dress and don't want it and I'm reluctant to go find another one. I keep telling Kerry I am going to make my selections and have failed to do so. I want to pick my dress before choosing my bouquet and I'm still in the air about using the band or a DJ. Maybe after I hear you guys reviews I will get motivated and back on the ball. Please don't leave us hanging, when you get a chance fill us in wth all the lovely details. Best whishes to both of you and happy planning to everyone else! We are leaving in less than a month! WOO HOO. I can't wait. I think right now I am more excited about just having a relaxing vacation than getting married. We have both been super busy the last two months, we need a break. I think we have everything together. Just need to pack and pay the photography balance. This weekend, I am doing b-pics for FH wedding gift. I hope they turn out well!

    I am just wondering ... how much are you paying for airport transfer to the resort?

Let me know if anyone has any suggestions. (the guest book is a coffe table book of pics of Paris) The fortune bouquet is something I found on Martha Stewart. It is a bouquet made of several different mini bouquets tied together with 1 ribbon. Each mini bouquet has a fortune tied to it. When you toss the bouquet, untie the ribbon and all of the mini bouquets spread out and several people get a piece of the bouquet. I am going to ask all of the ladies to come out for the toss and have someone tell the legend of the bouquet toss. I printed the fortunes on left over vellum from my invites and bought flowers from the dollar tree. The fortunes I used are also attached. Fortune Bouquets Bouquet Toss In ancient times, it was believed that a Bride was especially lucky on her wedding day. Guests would sometimes tear at her dress for a souvenir piece of good luck to take home. The Bride's tossing of her bouquet grew from her desire to offer a good luck souvenir, and prevent guests from bothering her (and her dress!) during her reception. I downloaded a reciept template. I will fill one out per bag and make up amounts so that FI has $300 worth of stuff and I have $300 worth of stuff. I am also putting a note explaining the contents with each receipt. Both are attached. Hmmm... I haven't even begun to tackle this! I am thinking that I will send in the songs, but also have them on an ipod as a back up. I was thinking an hour of dinner music (slower love song feel) and then 3 hours sounds good for the dancing music. I figure the DJ can mix in a couple of his own songs if needed. This may be a silly question ... but, what is the letter to customs and receipt all about? Is this something I should be doing too? Thanks!!

    59 days until we leave and 61 days until we are married - can I get a WOOT WOOT? Today we are ring shopping for FI and we HAVE to find his shoes and belt. Also on our MUST DO TODAY list is apply for passports (I know, we are way late in doing this!), fax our birth certificates and DL to the resort so they can get our marriage liscense paperwork started, and fax our photographer contract. The only other item on our to do lists are get my dress hemmed and FI suit jacket altered. Whew ... I think that is it. Oh yeah, and we got our final proof for our announcement this week and it is so cute. Ashley Brooke Daniel of Ashley Brooke Designs did a custom announcement for us. Check her out! Her stationary is so cute.
