My new husband and I just got back from our wedding last Wednesday and it really couldn't have been more perfect! My wedding coordinator was Elizabeth and she was AWESOME! My parents, in-laws and the bridal party couldn't stop raving about how well she kept things running. I gave her all the little details (guest book, programs, place cards and favors) the day before and the morning of, and she had everything set up wonderfully for the wedding.
For our guests we made welcome bags, there really is no easy way to get the bags to the guests. we knew around what time our family/guests would be getting in and would just hang out in the lobby with the bags for those guests.
We had 80 guests, including ourselves. Our ceremony was in the garden, which was beautiful and very private. The reception took place in Bar Higuey, which was decorated beautifully. To get to the ceremony/reception site the WC had everyone meet at Bar Carey and they were taken in decorated trolleys to the location. The only complaint I heard about the night was that it was hot. Being from South Florida though it's something we were all used to.
For the reception we had the DJ, who was great! He kept us all dancing until the very end of the reception. We gave him a playlist for dinner and one for dancing. What I really loved was how he looked through the type of music on the playlist and played the songs of the same type that we did not include.
We used Tropical Pictures and had Mika as our photographer. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous, I really couldn't be happier. If there are any specific shots that you would like, just let Mika know and she will be sure to get them.
It was hard to believe that the whole wedding was a product of 100+ emails and that I had never seen the place! It was more stressful to get everything ready before we left, once we got there everything went so smoothly and we were stress-free.
