        Hi everyone, I am going to chime in with a bit of unsolicitied advice! Hope that's ok....I love threads like these!

        DH and I loved everything about our wedding, and we did do some things that our family questioned (like learning a choreographed first dance, making our own truffle favors, etc.) But in the end, those were the things that we loved about our wedding. So, if something is really important to you, do it. Don't worry about what other people have done in the past, or what people think you should do, just do the things that actually mean something to you. That, IMHO, is what makes your wedding special. And if you just want to throw traditional stuff out the window and hang on the beach with your friends and family, do that!!

        The best weddings I have attended were the ones where the bride and groom's personality showed through - and those were also the ones where B&G looked happiest!

        Oh, and try not to stress out too much the day of the wedding. Allow more time than you think you will need so that you aren't rushing around - nothing is worse than a tight schedule! (Been there, done that!) Oh, and at the reception, take a moment to just stop and look around at everything and everyone. I love remembering being at dinner with my new husband, and just looking around the room taking it all in, thinking "Wow, I can't believe we're finally here, and finally married!" Yes, I really did that. I'm such a sap sometimes.

          You know - I don't. Also, the candles blew out! When I asked my husband if that was something we could have not done, though, he said, "no - I really liked them" so he must have noticed them! The real big impact factor, though, is having the candle bags line the perimeter of the pool. It's beautiful

            Yes, we had luminaries too!

            Maybe you can find some floating votives then the wind can't blow them out? I'm sure they make them.

              Check out the little flowers with the candles in front of the pool. What do you think of something like that?

                  I'm really going to go bankrupt!! When you do the sand ceremony is that included in your WC price or do you have to pay extra for that stuff? I swear it's the little crap that drives me crazy. Like in traditional weddings that take place at home, people buy unity candles, and the knife for the cake. That is so annoying to me! Uggh who wants to be bothered with those minute details.

                      OK - here are mine (I just found this thread and literally read all 11 pages straight through!):

                      1. In the end was it worth all the money?
                      2. For those who are non-AI how much was your bar tab at the end of the night?
                      3. (For those people who bought expensive dresses) In the end was it worth it having your dream dress or would it have been just as good in a cheaper version (too late for me! but just curious)
                      4. What is the minimum # hours someone should hire a photographer?
