    I know, I think one of the most stressful part of this was trying to get in contact with Carolina to get answers, especially these last few months.
    very annoying, but understandable... can't imagine just how much she actually does down there.

      Thanks for the offer regarding the seamstress!! I actually just dropped it off on Friday to one that I heard was fantastic in Kingston (where I live). Thank you very much for the offer though!! :)

          I though that's what I read, but was sweating when I read the above notes......I still haven't heard from Carolina, but the last e-mail I received from her she told me that the birth certificated needed to be translated......I hope she gets back to me soon, so in case I do need it legalized i have time to do so!!!!.....

              Hi, I dont think we should worry.. if I remember right Noonie, another bride on this forum had mentioned there was another beach party at the same time they did her's... I know they can only do three weddings a day... My wedding time is at 3pm

                yes i am using a dj, and will just bring tracks that we would like to hear on a disc... Carolina had said my beach party/ reception will most likely be from 9-12, if we start dinner at 6... although I am thinking I may want to have supper start around 5 since our ceremony is at 3

                  same here, ceremony at 2... dinner at 6, beach party at 8 is what I'd like. I have mostly older guest, not sure they'll be able to stay up until 12, or at least don't want to force ppl to stay up that late.

                  Like Courtney said, don't worry about it Daneille, Just print everything and you should be fine, does look like the rest of us wasted $$ in getting the b-certificate legalized!!!
                  I'll also be bring everything she wrote to me in e-mail..especially since we didn't have to put a deposit

                    I just wanted to pop in because we are getting soo close!! most of you have a little over a month!! I am addicted to BDW right now because teachers' college is on March Break right now -- so I'm doing lots of planning/research!

                    How is everyone doing? What do you still need to get done?
