Sungodess.... its almost here for you! I am trying to do a review too and post it quickly. Having trouble with photos on here though so I opened a photobucket site and might just do a link to all photos so you can all see the beach party, dinner, hotel, gazebo, etc. Will do that soon... I promise.
As Caribbeanlover said it is friggin hot here! Just walked to the store for my husbands b-day cake. And guess what I am doing in this heat... cooking a turkey! Just a small one. His Mom and daughter are coming over so it should be fun.. HOT.. but fun.
Talk soon girls! Really excited for those of you whose wedding is around the corner!!!

I find that whenever I'm in the Carribbean I LOVE mornings -- like, waking up at 7am, going for a coffee/cappuchino and then lounging by the pool. There is somethign about mornings in the carribbean that gets me, it's so calm and relaxing.
So now every morning I wake up, I imagine I'm there and it's nice! lol..it's perfect weather too!! I'm down by the pool with a freezie (just came up to get sun screen lol)
Great idea for the review Dawn - with the link to the pics, that works perfect!
Cooking a turkey -- wow, I give you credit!
Carribbean lover -- we are staying at Dreams Palm Beach! I've heard great things, and we got a good deal on it! All of the reviews on trip advisor have been amazing (like 6 pages of only good reviews). Grand PAlladium has been hit or miss lately. But I know not to believe trip advisor 100% lol..just with a grain of salt!

Soo how are you sleep?!?!?! I could hardly sleep a little less then a month away!!
Sheila I promise my review will be up soon lol (i'm so horrible!!!!!!!!!)
But......... As promised with much delay (sorry about that) I put together some pics to give you a sort of idea how the beach party looks. pls minus us (I looked like crap by then, sweated off my make-up, danced my hair back down)
The Enterance (behind that is La Uva Restaurant)
behind us, the yellow gazebo, is where the DJ is
the chairs and tables are on the left hand side (the camera is hinding it) also where the bar is
sorry this is the only pic i found of the bar lol!! it's a hut kinda thing.
As you can see behind us there is more chairs.
I have pics of just the tables I still have to scan those tho!
Hope this helps a bit, sorta of get an idea. As you can see in the sand or on us there is a spot light (which is high on a tree)

Good luck sleeping sungoddess!! I have issues sleeping regularly, so I totally understand how frustrating it is to not sleep!
My only wedding news is that I am going to try on my dress tomorrow! I hope it looks good!

It was my pleasure!!! Hope it didn't take to long
Oh me too I have sleep issues!!! so annoying!!!!! I feel your pain.
Ohhh that's so exciting, hope you can post some pics, would love to see!!!
I'm totally still in the wedding world, so much so DH says I should become a WC lol!!

Yes...take care of yourself! although I saw on fb that you got a BBQ lol...so take care of yourself WITH some BBQ'd food. mmmm
Well...I have been sleeping fine knock on wood -- but as we're getting closer I'm getting more anxious about the flight. Bah, I Was never like this before! Anyways, that's my only issue. ONE MONTH TODAY!! Perhaps I will start thinking more about it now.
I ordered a veil online from etsy. I hope I like it! It shipped from the states on the 24, so should be here within the next 10 days.
Also, we ordered my second wedding band last night!! It's a beautiful set and I can't wait until it gets here!
Glad you are still in wedding mode -- COME ON JUNE BRIDES, join BDW! lol.

1. Does the ROV ceremony prices increase drastically from year to year? I want to book NOW but if the price doubles I will have a heart attack lol.
2. How do you reserve your date and time? Since its a ROV can we just have it any time we want? I don't know if a judge does the ROV or if the WC does. Anyone know? I am thinking 5-6pm is best but I really don't know how it works.
3. And from experience, would it be better to get married on a Thursday or Friday?
4. Is a deposit required?
5. Are outside photographers permitted?
Sorry for all of the questions. Seeing that the WC is out I can only imagine how busy the assistant is, so I'd rather see if I can get answers here before e-mailing her. Thanks in advance!

2. I am doing a ROV and the time IS more flexible beacuse you do not need to coordinate with a Priest/Judge. We requested 5pm and as of now, we have that -- it is subject to change, however I think I may request later (like 6pm) when I get there.
3. I don't know from experience, but I don't think it matters whether it's a Thursday or Friday...! lol They don't seem to mind either one.
4. No, a deposit is not required.
5. Yes, outside photographers are permitted -- they will be required to have a day pass (paid for by you -- I forget how much it is though)
