        Yay I'm glad that was you and not some concerned bride that thought she had a stalker!  LOL  Well you looked so beautiful and yes we were all cheering as you walked by.  At first I was afraid to go say Hi but I'm glad I did :)  I figured if I let you know I was from the forum (since I called you by first name) that you wouldn't think I was a crazy stalker lady lol!

        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!

          Well ladies the planning thread is up!  Here's the link but if you can't open this I posted it in the "Planning Journal" section.  Or you can do an advanced search for my user name and find it that way.  http://www.bestdesti...10#post_1459950

           

          Also, I have most of my wedding review all written out.  I want to try and get that posted tonight as well but it may be later tonight...I have GOT to go get food, I'm starving!  Also, being back to reality where you actually have to go BUY your food really sucks!!  Pooey

            smckinney,

             

            I read that you had the tres leches cake...did you have any problems requesting that? I asked my wedding coordinator last week on the phone and she told me that I couldn't have it. Should I insist? lol  Did people like the cake?

             

            Runningbride, what kind of cake did you have?

              Congrats Runningbride and smckinney!!!! I am so happy to hear that you both had beautiful weddings!! I can't wait to read more on your reviews and see pics!

               

              Runningbride - Do you think the Luxury package was worth it? I keep going back and forth on if I want to keep it or downgrade and go from there. Just want to see what your thoughts on if everything it includes was worth it/useful?

               

              Thanks again to all of you for your advice/thoughts on my booking frustrations :)

                On a side note, I am having my engagement pics taken next Tuesday. It is pretty chilly here in New England, so trying to figure out what to wear...I was thinking a sweater dress with tights and black boots or something like that.

                 

                Any of you ladies who had engagement pics taken..did you tip your photographer? I'm not sure if I am supposed to or not...?

                  When did you originally book?  I booked back in July/August of 2009 and probably requested the Tres Leches cake about a year prior to the wedding when I turned in my initial checklist maybe?  I read other posts saying that they can't get the Tres Leches cake either which I find very strange.  It turned out great and tasted great, it didn't melt or anything so that's odd that they'd take it off the choices of wedding cakes.  If you do really want it I'd just send her a message asking what the reason is that it's off the list?  Surely there has to be an explanation about it. Let me know what happens with that.

                    Ok ladies I'm just about finished with the full review...where the heck to I post this thing?  LOL  I tried to go where Lady_Di posted hers in the actual "review" forum but it's shut down.  It says something about to not post there and to post to a vendor site or something?  And then the top of this thread says to not post to this thread either?  So you ladies tell me where to post it and I'll do it
