  1. Love, love, love the Westin!! Darienne was amazing, she took care of everything. If you have any questions, PM me. Have fun, excellent choice!!
  2. We actually changed to an AI resort, but since I was already in the process of planning with the Westin, we stayed at the RIU and had the wedding at the Westin. We ended up getting such a great deal, it worked out less than if we didn't go AI.
  3. I agree!! Make the best of it. Aruba was amazing, the weather was perfect, food fantastic, and the people helpful. Island time is special, but I found I adapted once we landed. Was really not bothered by much, even when my cake almost took a header...meh...whatever, I'm married now, was pretty much all I was thinking. All of the things I thought would piss me off, didn't...shocking really, because I was so irritable before we left! Please PM me if you guys have any questions. There were little things I didn't think about until the week before, like place card holders...duh! You need them in Ar
  4. I agree! Prepare for the indifference!! People didn't care that I was carrying a wedding dress, and travelling with a group of 45. Plus, keep in mind, there may be other brides on your flight as well. My little tip for you, tape the straps to the hanger, that was almost the death of me, every time I picked up my dress, it was pooled at the bottom of the garment bag.
  5. hahaaa!! thanks! It was fantassssstic! wouldn't change a thing! For the music though, I rented the sound system that they had available, it was $250, but I can't remember if it was flat or $250/hour...more than likely by the hour. It was great. Someone on another thread was talking about this app called my wedding dj, and I actually bought an ipod touch just to take advantage of this $5 app. Let the resort provide the dock though, it is well worth the money in the end, not having to worry about it. If there is anything I can help you with, PM me, obviously, no need to be on this site much anym
  6. we went with ipod and hook up, and it worked out better than I thought it would. our guest were able to go up and skip a song if they liked, and i didn't care because I had at least an extra hour of music.
  7. I told the wc at the westin that I would steam it myself, she gladly brought the steamer up for me
  8. I loved this so much, I found it all useful, here is mine: THINGS I WOULDN'T CHANGE - 6 month engagement - OOT bags, as much as I got caught up in buying stuff for the bags (actually obsessed) everybody loved them, the Bubbas were handy, nobody at the resort had them, and in Aruba, it's soo windy that everyone's plastic cups kept blowing into the pool. The extra sunscreen definitely came in handy. - we delivered most of the bags the week before we left, very impromptu drop ins, this alleviated the stress of me trying to figure out how I was going to transport things. - staying at
  9. I flew with WestJet, and going, they didn't care, were not helpful...all I kept thinking was that I'll have to steam it the day of anyways. I was getting frustrated because it kept falling off of the hanger, coming home, I taped the ribbon hanging thingys to the hanger, and that was much better, and they offered to store my dress for me. Just be prepared for nobody caring that you're getting married, I was kinda surprised.
  10. Aruba is AMAZING!! I can't rave enough about it. The majority of our group stayed at the RIU, but we had the wedding at the Westin, which is right next door. The Westin is awesome...they treated us like gold. They arranged for transportation for us to and from the airport. We did see 2 weddings at the RIU, they were small, but nice. It was definitely worth the money.
  11. Thanks Manda!! It's already pretty far on the list, so I'm not worried And Torilynn...I KNOW!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK! We keep telling everyone, we have a couple of days to get out of our drunken stupor before it all goes down hill!!!!
  12. Torilynn, I don't even know what I would do without you on here!!! You are my online BFF!!!
  13. Awwww....thanks so much Nikadawn. This looks like the biggest crisis, so I'm not really that worried. I did think of a back up plan though, someone gave me a little blue shoe charm when my youngest son was born with his name and birthday on it. I'm soo exhausted and have very low tolerance for people right now, so this was the tipping point for sure! Meh, whatever isn't done, isn't done. Who cares at this point, right? That was the whole point of going away!!! I may go over to Victorias secret on my lunch though, just to see.
  14. Annie, if you're going to the states, I noticed, while I was in line at walmart (or target) that they sell 2 packs of advil (shoot, or was it tylenol..i'm really sorry, I can't remember) of the 10 cts for $3.97, don't stress about finding them here, you'll get them in the states for sure. As well as, in dollartree they had boxes of 3 pack (2 ct) advil and tylenol for $1
