that's my worse night mare, rain on my wedding day but what can you do, we don't control the weather sadly.
who played your music during the ceremomy? The system will accept Ipod, or just CD's?
did you have music playing for your cutting the cake during the ceremony? did you have an exite song?
I don't plan on doing the private dinner, we will do the private beach party, and have our first dance then (I know the photographer wont get it, but just make sense to have it then as suppose to right after the cake cutting) Carolina told me the cake cutting happens during the ceremony, but people only get to eat it after dessert, right?
I'm so happy you told me how much it ended up cost you for make up and hair for everyone, so we decided all to do our own make up, and the girls will do their own hair. I will just get my hair done at the spa.
Did you do the TTD session?
WHOA, you paid a lot!!!! once in a life time kind of thing, just keeping thinking that lol.
Thank you so much for the great details, and congrats again for becoming a MRS!!!!
Thank you for answering my question a head of time
Courtney,you definitely need you birth ceritifcate translated and legalized. As well as your single status. and your passport doesn't need to be translated or legalized.. they just use a copy of that as a form on I.D.
I will also definitely upgrade my bouquet. We are not sure we will have AHR (hoping to get out of that lol) Great deal for the bouts $10 at Michael's. The resort is charging $10 as well, but I wasn't thinking about bring them back.
I sometimes have that problem logging on to just this thread and no other threads, weird!!

The music was played by a CD player. I don't think Carolina has an ipod dock, so I would burn all of your music for your ceremony on a CD before you leave. And if you have additional music for a DJ, put that on a separate CD since it was a PITA to get the CD from Carolina, to the DJ, to the videographer for the the DVD.
We cut the cake during the reception, but if you aren't have a private reception, I think you cut the cake during the toast right after you walk out. You and your wedding party go, have a few moments to yourselves and then we went back for a toast and pictures with all of our guests. We paid for the photographer and videographer to stay for the reception, since I really wanted pictures of the whole night for memories. You won't remember everything so I wanted great pictures to remind me, and it was only an additional $300 for both.

We gave him our first dance song and father/daughter, mother/son and some other songs that we liked and he had all the rest of the music picked out from that. Every song he played was perfect. Right up our alley. My H and I have been to 7 weddings in the 2 years we've been together, so we made a treat for our guests and played everyone's first dance songs again, which got everyone up and dancing and then moved to "dance songs". Dancing the whole night! Which is not bad for a group that is usually the ones sitting at the bar when dancing is going on....

I will actually ask my photographer if he can and how much it'd cost for him to stay during the beach reception, I doubt it tho, it wasn't an option on the packages.
Thank you so much for answering all my questions. Yeah, not having the private dinner(btw how much did the private dinner cost you, for how many guest did you have?) so I guess I'll be cutting the cake during ceremony party, and have it served as dessert.
Now to think about it, it's costing me $9us p/p just for the beach reception, that's over $200, I am wondering if it might just be worth doing the private all together, pls pls let me know how much it cost!! thank you thank you.
I will definitely make sure the girls use a lot of hair spray, thank you for the suggestion and advice!! well needed. I can only imagine just how windy.
