Any input is helpful!!!! they did a great job on my hair and makeup as well as my girls hair! i can send you pics if you would like. as far as nails if you get the gel or shellac manicures/pedis at home you should def be ok for them to last. Thats what i did. I got my nails done a week before my wedding and they looked perfect.

We did not hire a DJ, we just rented the iPod equipment and they actually provide a DJ to run that. I did however have a guest who did the emceeing for us. He announced our bridal party and then we went right into our first dance. Then had dinner, dessert then did cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss. Let me know if you have any other questions!

I have read In the resort website that if you do bring stuff of your own then it would be subject to evaluation... I'm just wondering if it is worth it? they do charge a "set up" fee but i have found that it comes out way cheaper than to use their decorations and centerpieces. I am not sure if you got any quotes from them, but their basic centerpieces are almost $100 a pop!

We packed everything in suitcases or carried on the fragile items, nothing was shipped. It actually wasn't too bad. One suitcase for all our decor, and then I used the empty suitcase coming home to carry our wedding clothes home.
  8. thank you ladies!! it you need any help let me know!! I'm going through wedding planning withdrawal!!
  9. Here are the pics of my OOT bags!! Everyone and loved them and everything was used, most things by everyone and somethings were just used by one or two people, but with 29 guests, I think that is pretty good!! This is the bag, just a plain paper gift bag from AC Moore with a label I made from VistaPrint, and mugs I had made from an ebay seller. Off bug wipes and medicine packs with Ibuprofen, Tums, Aloe gel and Neosporin. Lint rollers I found at the dollar section in Target, 2 for a $1 and playing cards from Oriental Trading Co that I bought from another bride Room key holders and chapstick, idea from another bride, MK0386 Do not disturb door hangers made with VistaPrint. Everyone loved all the goodies and I had a great time putting everything all together!
  10. My handsome hubby, and handsome groomsmen! Just some advice, we really wanted a lt tan colored suit, and he wanted to buy it because it was just not worth it to just rent, but unless you go looking in March or April, you are pretty much out of luck to buy a whole suit because designers are already coming out with the fall and winter lines already! So we went with black, but I thought it looked so elegant, and he was ok with the heat once he took his jacket off.
