  1. Hey there... sorry for the delay.. I started getting ready with make up at the spa around 130pm with the girls photographer did boys getting ready around 2 Girls and me in my room around 3 Ceremony was at 4, and we still had quite a bit of time for pictures.. I would just say be organized with all of the photo shots you want to get and have someone in charge. We had best man and MOH calling up specific groups for shots with us...

  3. When I asked Pilar about vases for bridal and BM bouquets she said she could do it free of charge. Maybe just ask her during your meeting.

    Tipping Etiquette?

    I tipped wedding coordinator at the resort because I was so impressed with their dedication. They stayed throughout the entire reception and were awesome with all the details.. I also tipped the photographer a smaller amount. I'm not too sure what most people do.. I also wasnt sure about what amounts were appropriate. I gave WC $100 and photographer $40, but we had a wedding of 75 guests...
  5. Our whole wedding was purple and turquoise.... I was afraid to do the girls and guys in diff colors, but now that I did I loved it. What color are your girls wearing. I think either way it will look good!
  6. I strongly reccomend getting more photos on CD. With the full 1 day coverage ($999) we had over 900 pictures and it took my husband and I 4 hours to try and narrow down to 250 pictures. We had 100 included and had to pay $1/photo extra that we wanted. It may be a better option to try and get more pictures ahead of time because the last thing you want to do on vaccation is spend 4 hours looking at pics. Also the divine package counts at $300 credit towards adventure photos. The included photo book can only have 80 pictures....
  7. I had ceremony at 4pm annd had my make up done at 1pm. My BM actually curled my hair before that and set it and then finished off when I got back around 2pm. When the photographer got there at 3pm I was still doing hair... Hair and make up would probably take about 2 hours.
  8. just wanted to share this pic of the bridal party. Loved the 2 colors together!
  9. Here is my full set! Love it <3
  10. I never paid extra for chairs. The only extra costs with guests were dinners, cocktail hour (we cancelled), champaigne toast, cake (not necessary since dinner has a dessert. Also to add on time to our reception was some sort of formula based on the number of guests.

    Beautiful wedding & Beautiful resort!

    Thanks so much! I asked the resort to use the centerpieces to line the isle, its a shame not to use them when you are paying so much for them.
  12. - My Hubby and I paid after our meeting with Pilar. I am sure they will allow 2 cards to be used. Advice for my fellow Canadians *pay for your wedding invoice in travellers cheques as the US exchange is better than Visa or mastercard. - 5 of my BM got hair done at the spa and the spa did not wash any of their hair. I would say dont wash it, but they are pretty great at making sure your hair will stand the elements throughout the day
