  1. My videographers were from Norfolk VA. It was one of the best choices I made. There is nothing like seeing your wedding in video form. They are called Jeremy Mitchell Cinema http://www.jeremymitchellcinema.com/ . They are so amazing.

  4. Yes, I am bringing my centerpieces and a few decorations I found around town. Im trying to keep it minimal. I also have to pack all of my welcome bags. I was going to ship items, but it was too expensive. It will be great to do the suit case thing because I will have extra space after I get rid of all the stuff for the honeymoon!!!
  5. Hello Mommybride14, Pretty much all of our wedding detail are complete! Thank goodness. I am making my own centerpieces. I bought tin buckets at IKEA and got children's book cut outs of the letters that spell out our name for table numbers. In the buckets there will be our favorite candy and childhood games ( go fish, old maid, hearts, crazy 8's and apples to apples cards) next to the buckets there will be IKEA picture frames that are double sided with a picture of us when we were kids. No one ever remembers centerpieces so I wanted to make it fun. I know that there will be people who don't want to dance, so they will have something to entertain themselves. Plus I come from a big board game family, so it is special. We have 82 guests so its fairly large. We chose the beach wedding and are doing the champagne toast on the beach and taking off to do pictures. We were very certain that we did not want to do the pictures ahead of time, because we want the first time we see each other to be when I walk down the aisle. We are having our reception at the open air restaurant on the beach. El Faro is what it is called ( I think...). We will be serving Grouper and Tenderloin We picked the Japanese restaurant for the rehersal dinner. We are going with the hotel DJ for 340$ for 4 hours. They do not MC, all they really do is set up and make sure everything is working. We are going to have each member of the wedding party listen out for cue songs for each event we have planned at the wedding. The other option was to hire a dj for 500$ more. We are pinching pennies so we opted out. The wedding is in less than a month! I am so excited. I went through beach bum vacations for all the bookings. Steve is wonderful. He kept me in the loop with everything that was changing. Luciana is my WC and she is wonderful also. If you have any questions, I will do my best to help. Jessica
  6. So, the clock is ticking! I am at the point where the final decisions are being made. I am encountering a few concerns...like, Should I make my centerpieces there or make them at home and ship them? Is the hotel DJ going to work out? Should I spend time on additional decor or is the standard decor fine? Why do I only get to choose one entree for the dinner? Are there going to be random beach people showing up in my wedding pictures? Should I get a second dress to wear at the reception? I think I may be stressing because I am pre-programmed to think weddings are stressful.... Is anyone else in the final stages of planning?

  8. Flower, food, location choices...actually all the choices that need to be made.
  9. Hello ckl22, I just e-mailed my WC at Ibero Beach and she quoted me 250 for a dj setup. We are hooking up a playlist from an ipod and letting that play throughout the night (to avoid bad music). I believe a mic and the speakers are included. Music is a big part of our lives and we are trying to avoid the chicken dance and other wedding songs.

  11. I was thinking of doing my makeup through the hotel. Were you happy with how it turned out? Its only 90$ which is much less than the quotes I got from outside vendors.
