  1. You can bring them and they will set them up and not charge you for labor, it's all part of her job. They do all the setting at in the gazebo and such too. Not sure how they would hang them in the inlet though? I think that's why they use the stand up ones. Worth writing about and asking to see if/how past brides have done it though! There is an option for tiki torches, I *think* it was about $100 for a bundle of 10 or something like that.

The Aventura Spa resort and the staff really go out of their way to make you feel at home and very accommodating. I had Dulce as my wedding coordinator and she really went above an
  4. Just out of curiosity....what is the meaning behind the tradition? And why wear if you aren't going to throw it?? Just to have it as a keep sake? I hope that doesn't offend anyone, I'm just not sure I get the point if nobody is going to see it.
  5. Hi Ladies, Since this is the July 2010 thread I thought some of you might be interested in this contest http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-2010-a-61160/ Even if you have a photographer it is a great opportunity to get some amazing pictures! Just thought I would pass it along and get the word out. You all are so close, best wishes and CONGRATULATIONS!!!
  6. I have to agree with the majority of others. If you're going to spend $1000, I would do it on a photographer instead of cameras. While I see the creativity in your plan...you are also assuming your guests want to take on this role of make shift photographers and personally I wouldn't be so thrilled about it if I were a guest at someones wedding. Besides, I think most people will bring their own camera anyway...why not set up a page on a website like Shutterfly and pass out "upload cards" with username and password during the trip, then after everyone gets home they can all upload pics to one p
  7. We did all of it! I wore my garter all day and it didn't slip at all. My Wake Forest garter: Tossing the flowers (for those who don't want to ruin their bouqet, you can take a BM's since they are usually smaller or ask your WC to have a special "tossing" one made that is a mini version of your own bouqet or just a few flowers tied together): And the garter toss:
  8. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you picures. Brings back so many good memories You looked amazing and gorgeous and your pictures came out stunning. Del Sol rocks!! Congratulations Jackie!
  9. I don't think there is a right answer. You do what works for you. I was only engaged for 3 months before I got married and some people never get engaged...or married, they are just together. If you want to get married, get married...you can always go back and do the wedding when the timing is better.
  10. I can only speak for Fernando but I love, love, loved him. Would totally recommend many times over. I dunno if they would get upset if you hired one for one thing and another for something else but it could get expensive, and I would tell them before hand just so everyone is clear.
  11. I try to make sure my plate is filled with majority fresh food and lots of colors as a rule of thumb. So my favorite quick meal to make is Parmesan Chicken Salad: -skinless, boneless chicken breast pounded thin (for quick cooking) -mix flour with salt and pepper and coat the chicken -dip coated chicken in egg that has been beat -cover chicken with mix of 1/2 part bread crumbs 1/2 part shredded asiago or parmesan cheese -heat up a dash of olive oil on skillet and cook chicken until it is cooked through and outside is golden brown and crisp -plate it and put tomato, cucumbers a
  12. I would check with the resort if you can have outside vendors first. If so, I think this would be a great touch! Sorry, I don't have any recommendations but I think your guests would love the added flare. Good luck with your search!
  13. Di-your TTD are stunning!!!! So glad that is worked out and you got to do this with Del Sol. You look beautiful! Congrats!!!
  14. If you want a photojournalistic style...you won't find anyone better than Del Sol. They are so great at what they do! My slideshow is in my siggy but here is their website if you want to check out more of their work del Sol Photography Good luck!!

I was going to do most of the stuff when I got down there. I want purple tablecloths too. They can only be purple! lol...(eggplant purple would be ideal) I might reserve those too.
