  1. Hi Morgan, I am happy to answer all of your questions but I am NO EXPERT. Lol. 1. Debora from Del Sol Photography shot our TTD session. After the shoot, we placed all of our wet clothes in a large plastic bag and when we got back to our room, we hung it in the shower and washed as much sand out of it as possible. We then hung it out on the back of a chair on our balcony. The dress was completely dry by the time we were ready to checkout and go home. As soon as we got back to NY I dropped it off at our local Dry Cleaners (they charged $300) and it was like almost new again. 2. We shipped nothing down. Our wedding coordinator made it clear early on that they were not going to be responsible for and shipped goods. However, Maracas Mexico did ship our maracas to the resort a couple weeks before (I think that was an exception). I brought 2 extra luggages down with me. Both were hard-top to prevent any damages. We used 1 for mostly the OOT bag items and the other for the extra wedding decorations. It worked out great for us because my sister was allowed to carry 2 extra bags for free (she has 2 kids). 3. I waited until after my wedding to post my planning thread. I even waited until after I received our "sneak preview" of our professional photo so that I could include our photos. I would suggest you start to write your post from beginning to end by using Microsoft Word or something. That way, you will only have to copy and paste it write onto the forum. Also, I have been MIA for awhile because I'm in nursing school. I logged in today and saw that there have been many changes to the site. So I wouldn't be able to assist you as to how/where to post your thread, Thank you for your kinds words. I hope I answered all of your questions and I wish you all the best with your wedding planning! Hi, Thank you so much for your kind words. Our resort forbids the use of silk flower petals on the beach (for environmental reasons). So I purchased 5 bags of real rose petals through them. If the costs of the flowers weren't so outrageous, i would've had a much fuller layer of petals for the aisle. Oh well... it did the job and I think it turned out beautiful either way. Sure. I'll send you the templates when I get home tonight.
  2. Thank you! We had our guest sign on it with a fine pt. marker. It turned out so beautiful and unique. Thanks so much everyone!! I am glad you all enjoy my planning thread and I was able to give back to all of you helpful and creative ladies!!!
  3. Thanks! Here's a photo of how it turned out on my planning thread. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/75527-justnoelles-peacock-wedding-planning-thread-long-pic-heavy/?p=1816690

Planning a wedding is definitely doable. However, If you can save money DIYing, do it. I had very little spare time due to my work and school schedule. But if I had the time, I would've definitely did a lot more myself. Good luck! Quote: Originally Posted by Jahanee Conner @JustNoelle Your wedding was simply gorgeous!!!

Thanks Jahanee!! You may not be able to open in the PM either. I believe you have to reach a 150 post count to open any attachments but I'll PM you the attachments anyway. I bought the mini tote bags from EBay. They don't have the turquoise or purple colors anymore and they are now more expensive then what I paid. I'll look to see if I can find the link and send it to you too.

Lol it was so much fun!!
  8. WOOHOOOO!! My planning thread made it to BDW's featured home page!! The little things make me so EXCITED.

My wedding was after yours. I love your mothers dress btw! So perfect for a peacock theme. Thanks EV! Finding the frames was sought of last minute for me. I was searching the dollar-trees, Marshall's and Walmart for frames that were decorative enough, made a statement and did not weigh much (to avoid overweight luggage charges) and decided to take a chance in paramount... And Bingo! I found exactly what I had been looking for. I didn't realize you had a peacock theme. I was searching high and low for peacock brides on BDW. I think I was obsessed with finding you all at one point. Lol. But I'm glad you like my thread. P.S. Let me see them pics girl! I'm sure your wedding was BEAUTIFUL!
