    wow..u looked beautiful/ congratulations..


    thanks so much for your review..its always so helpful to hear from brides that have experienced their wedding at the ror..

    just a few questions for u if u dont mind..

    the hoopa that u married under is exactly what i want.. did u ask them for the vines or did it come with the vines..

    i remember sending a pic to chandlyn she quoted me 200.00 but it was with out the vines.. your ceremony location looked so beautiful..

    u said yr mom helped move the decorations into the reception..(would u recommend we assign a back up coordinator) i remember somewhere another bride suggested this.. did u have the cocktail reception after the ceremony?

    oh your bouquet was gorgeous..

    thanks..

      The pictures look amazing! Congrats. Even more excited to go after seeing them. You were such a pretty bride. Kinda of dumb question considering where we were all going, but were you hot? I am worried that I will be uncomfortably hot.
      Thank you!
      Actually paying by cash slightly lowered the cost, because then Michael doesn't have to pay a credit card surcharge to the bank. But that is something you have to work out with Michael.
      I wasn't hot on the beach because of the constant breeze...but that night the wind completely died down and it was sweltering upstairs at the Plantation. I kept going down to the pool to dip my feet in and cool down...it was also a nice little quiet reprieve!

            Wow, Again Thanks For All The Info. Sounds Like You All Had A Blast. I Don't Know If This Has Been Answered Yet, But Is There An Alternate Plan For The Wedding If It Rains? Thanks

              I'm glad you brought up the wind. I was thinking of wearing my hair down but I think I'm having 2nd thoughts. For some reason, I wasn't thinking about wind.
              Also loved the hoopa. It was very pretty.

              Oh, quick question. I really liked your sand ceremony set. Where did you get that from? Did you get it home ok?

              Thanks again!!!
              Thank you!
              We did really all have an amazing time.
              As for the wind...it was a relatively calm day and my bangs still kept flying everywhere in the breeze. Perhaps you could consider a partial updo with your bangs back? That is what I now wish I would have done. Perfectly beautiful pictures were slightly wrecked because my bangs were covering half of my face.
              We found my sand ceremony set online at Weddingstar - Wedding Accessories - Cake Toppers - Wedding Favors. We also had our initials engraved on the main vessel. It was very nice with the stand. We packed it to the top with the leftover sand, and then grabbed some industrial saran wrap out of a restaurant kitchen! According to my mom, it worked just fine!

                I did ask for the vines to wind down the two front posts...but they wound up doing all four, which looked great. I think our floral arrangement on top cost so much due to the flowers we used. Most of them had to be imported, which drastically increases the price.
                I think it is a good idea to appoint someone if you want things planned in detail. I actually gave my mom and mother in law carte blanche on the reception decor. They actually put everything together that afternoon before the wedding and then surprised us with it. Everything looked absolutely lovely :)
                We did have a cocktail reception after the wedding with the steel band rented for an hour. Fruit and rum punch were served.
                I loved my bouquet too!! Thank you!

                  I don't believe we or any of our guest took pics in the disco. It was really really dark in there. We had alot of fun at Pasha's and closed it down many nights. My only complaint was that the music was sooo loud, you couldn't carry a conversation.
                  If it rains on the day of your ceremony, I was under the impression the ceremony would be moved into the conference center (not even sure where that was!!). Just think positive thoughts...and it won't rain on your wedding day!!

                    Although not one of us, myself included, want it to rain on our wedding days it is considered a good omen for the marriage

                      Thanks for answering all our questions...here's another! Did you used the Steel Band? If so, do they sing also?

                      Thanks!
