I think I saw your wedding on Saturday! I agree, get the extra hour at the reception for sure!
I just used the resort flowers for less hassle. I thought they were beautiful. A tad expensive for roses, but it was less of a headache.
The map did help, thank-you!! I printed them off and gave them to our guests so they could see who was where. We had oceanfront (736) the last 3 nights of our stay. We had guests all over the place but it worked out nicely.
We didn't do the DJ and it did look amazing. Our guests drank enough to keep on dancing, lol. But I did see DJ Ivan at work and it was spectacular!
Lady Di, you and Heather Graham were my hair inspiration so I have to give you a shout out!

No you can't bring into or take out of the country any flowers or shells, well you can but if you get stopped they will throw them away. I brought fake flower petals and the resort used those.
The tables at The Royal for our reception held 10 people comfortably.
I used the resort for hair and makeup and it turned out beautiful and everyone said it looked "stunning" lol so I'll post pics and y'all can see what you think. But I'm so very glad I went with them.
If you have to open up a new credit card, have a garage sale or beg, cheat and steal to raise the extra money for a DJ then DO IT. I would have paid him twice as much as he was asking now that I know how much it was worth it. Of course we all love to dance but we had such a party going on that the locals and other guests from the resorts were pulling up chairs to watch us. Our picture look like a night club. A iPod and speakers wouldn't have been able to keep up with us. We saw another wedding there that did have an iPod/speaker set up and hardly anyone was dancing. So we're so glad we sprung for Dj Ivan. Also, spring for the extra hour at the reception and make it 4 hours if you have a Dj. You won be sorry you did.
I'll get the full review all written up, do my planning thread and post pics when I get home from work.
Also, I saw runningbride (I think) and I said hi to her by the pool. I hope it was her lol. But she looked so amazingly beautiful! I'm sure she'll be back soon too.
WELCOME BACK LADIES AND CONGRATS!!!
RunningBride- you look absolutely stunning!! I love your hair, it looks amazing. Fernando and his hair guy did an amazing job. YAY!! I'm so glad I got Fernando! I'm thinking of a half up and down myself but not sure how the humidity will affect my hair in June. hhmmm....
Did you use the luxury package? I thought the bridal bouquet of dozen roses were included?
Smckinney - Can't wait to see your pics and how their salon did! I'm using them for my rehearsal dinner night. Was it easy to communicate with them? I'm pretty good with my spanish but I don't know every word. LOL...
If anyone has gold chair sashes and wants to sell them, PM me! As of right now I'm guessing 40 or so. Gracias!!
