Morning!! Yes, tomorrow will be one month for me!!
As far as shoes goes I am wearing a wedge flip flop for the ceremony. I was also going to go barefoot but when I went to alter my dress I would have to either alter it to the high heel shoes or barefoot and I also want to wear a high heel at the reception. The alterations person said if I altered it to the high heel and went bare foot for the ceremony that I'd have to pick the dress up when walking down the aisle. No thank you!
For hair and make up I am having the spa do it as it is included in my package but my sister will be there as a back up plan. I originally was going to hire someone to come on site but the cost was crazy plus the vendor fee was WAY too much.
They do offer steam cleaning of your dress and the grooms suit but check your package.
I was down there in July and they basically told me that weddings get planned about 3 weeks out. It was hard for me to understand at first but I get it now. They do weddings pretty much everyday so I'm trusting it will all work out fine. My only issue is that a month out, I still don't know what the cost is! Yikes!
We have 61 people and we thought we would only get 35!!
The diet is basically shot to heck! I just came back from my bachelorette weekend where I drank and ate way too much. Also I hate to work out but have been forcing myself but its even harder when I never see any results. Ugggh!
I'm FB friends with them!
Getting nervous too but so excited. Packing is not going to be fun at all!

So I have 30 booked and we are hoping thats all that will come. Lol. I actually wanted to chat and get some input from you ladies out there on a couple of things. I'm a little picky about my shoes, and always thought I would be getting married in heels. I am now thinking of teeny heels, to flats cause of the sand. I initally thought of going barefoot when I walk down the isle, and then save the heels for later, though I noticed that the flooring on the patio area has little grooves for heels to get stuck in.
I know this issue seems small, but what is everyone doing out there?... I guess it would be more personal preference, but it would be nice to have some ideas.
Hair and make-up. Does anyone know if in the salon they offer hair and make up for the bride?...
Anyone know if there are steamcleaning services for our outfits?...
Anyone know when the resort will be contacting me to discuss all the details on my wedding. It is for Dec 6th and I haven't heard from anyone. I dread calling, as I did one other time and I was passed around.. and I litterally am not joking for 17 mins (as per my cell phone read) until they found someone that could speak better english to assist me.
It may have been luck of the draw as I have called before with no issue, but again I need to allocate lots of time to calling and not to mention the patience.
Angie, how is the diet going for you. Can you believe one month left for you... I am nervous for you... but am looking forward to seeing your pics when you get back.
I just found the resorts profile on FB. You guys should check it out... Love to hear from everyone so keeping chattin'
