    Isn't it a lot of fun trying dresses on, but also can be confusing if you don't know what you want!
    Don't pull a me
    Hi girls,
    For a private reception, do you have to book it before you go down? is there only one place for a private reception? I am scared if I dont book it now there wont be a place available.
    Yes I suggest you book your reception if you want a private one a.s.a.p.
    If your well aware you want a private reception, go for it!!!

      Wow, I go away for a few days and there's all kinds of action on this board!!

      Congrats on the new house carribeanLover! That's fantastic news! And I am glad to hear you are feeling ok after your surgery!

      My wedding plans are sorta at a stand still right now. I have the dress, I have booked a photographer (engagement pics at the end of the month!), and the invites are out. I guess I should decide what the boys should wear? I feel like there's more I should be doing, but I don't know what it is I should be doing!!!

      I also don't know if I will even get 20 people and I think you have to have that many for the beach party? We wanted to do the semi private reception and then the beach party but I don't know if that is going to happen.
      Counting down to January 17th in Punta Cana!

        Hiya!!! yes well I know I can be very chatty lol

        Thanks!!!!!!!! we're very excited!!!
        Yes thanks again surgery went well and pretty much back to my normal routine. I even got to clean my appt from top to bottom (well almost lol)

        Ohhh perfect!!! dress is #1 lol. Yes good idea, you can go through pics and what not see what interest you for the boys to wear.
        Will you be doing favour's for the guest? I did OOT bags (which is very time consuming so if you'd like to do something like that you can get started.
        These are the things I had in my bag................

          I really like the idea of doing OOT bags, but I won't have any extra room in my luggage to take it. And does't it cost alot if you are over your weight limit? What did you guys do?

              terilina: I read some people give them out at the airport (if you and most of your guests will be departing the same airport at the same time)

              I was wondering how long does it usually take for Carolina to answer your emails? I emailed Friday and had no response (I know it is only Tuesday lol) but just wondering what the normal time for her responses are?

                It does cost a lot for extra luggage weight. And I didn't think of that until it was time to go lol! What I did was gave the people in my town their bags (and stressed the fact they would need it down there..no one forgot their bag!) I had 7 people in T.O 2 ppl in N.S and 1 in Ireland. T.O people I fedex their bags (way cheaper then the extra luggage, was $30) and for the other people I gave in town guest their bags (as a lot of them had extra luggage space) so this could be an option. If not you could also just do mugs, a lot of brides have done this (if I would have known how crazy I would get over labels and how time consuming, I would have just gone with the mugs lol....even though all the guest got a kick out of everything and loved it all)

                I haven't notice a pattern with her! I waited a few weeks one time (I even forgot I emailed her until she replyed lol) so if it's urgent (I use this word lightly btw when it comes down to weddings....everything is urgent LOL!!) and it's been a few days, go ahead email her again.. she totally understands how we brides are (and I think she also gets it can be nerv racking making plans with someone you've never met,especially for your big special day and so far away on top of it)

                    Tracy, your review is awesome!! You certainly put a lot of work into it and it's MUCH appreciated!

                    Your tip to have someone collect your belongings after the ceremony/reception (like the sand ceremony vases, cake topper, etc.) was a good point...I would never have thought of that until the last minute then panicked trying to designate someone to do it, lol.

                    Question: the ceremony decorations, like the turquoise ribbons tied to the gazebo pillars and chair sashes, did you bring those? or does the resort have them? My colours are the same and I basically wanted the same sort of decor.

                      Thanks!!!!!!!!! I just so glad most of you got to read it before you wedding for some pointers and what it basically look like.

                      The ceremony is decorated by Carolina, and she supplies with ribbon and all. In your meeting she will ask you what colour. You tell her turquoise!! And you'll get the exact same set up!! :)
