Thanks Julee,


No, I guess it's not easy for you to plan with your travels and work...At least, you have the right attitude and all the essential stuff is covered.  Are you doing any special activity with your guests during the week?


I have a special thought for Monica Mai who is getting married this Saturday (April 16th) Whoo Hoo! plane.gif

After a cancelled wedding in November because of the tropical storm, she deserves really the most amazing wedding ever!


If we do not have the chance to see you online before the big day, I want to send you my best wishes for your marriage and wedding day!

I can't wait to read your reviews about Ladera and Jade Mountain when you will be back! 


Enjoy, you gonna have the time of your life!

LilyRose, I know how you feel!  I have a daily panic attack, and I can't really do anything right now, because I'm a teacher and that is taking all my energy right now! Can't wait until the end of May when I can start buying welcome bag goodies and clothes for our trip. 


I did make some big decisions yesterday, and I am so excited to share and see what you guys think.  We are getting married on the beach, and I've been going back and forth on flowers, arches, table decor, etc., but this is what we have decided....

I'm loving the feel of the purple and orange now! I'm usually into simple/earthy colors, but I decided to go all the way tropical.  Getting so excited now that it is all coming together and so close!

I really feel the need to stop thinking about things and start "doing" them! LOL


Have a good day!

Hey ladies! Glad to hear everyones plans are going well, especially those of us who have weddings fast approaching :-) Thanks MEve for posting info on all the info on the various resorts (especially AMB, which is where we are staying with our guests. I agree with you about the looks of the gazebo, so I'm glad we chose tohave our wedding site elsewhere) So I'm still trying to pin down my exact number of guest, although we asked for everyone to confirm and put down their deposit on March 15!! I am a little angry about that because we practically have to chase people down, so we can give our final numbers to ACW and so we can plan for the reception. But I guess it's jut part of the process of planning a destination wedding to deal with guests who aren't as anal about my wedding planning as I am, Lol! So far we have about 22 guests confirmed out of the 30 we invited, and I'm fine with that. And I picked up some cute wooden fans at Pier One (they were on sale for a dollar each!) for out of town bags! I haven't begun dress shopping yet so that will be my next project. Happy planning ladies!

Hello ladies!!


I am back! We got back really late last Friday . .. and have been going through St. Lucia withdrawals all week.


The wedding was absolutely A-mazing and each and every one of you ladies are going to be so happy you decided to choose St. Lucia as your destination wedding spot!!  I am so glad we decided to wait to the wedding there.


When we first got there is was rainy and dreary. .. which I was a bit upset about but by the end of the week things started to clear up. The Friday night pre-wedding celebration was great! Weather was perfect.  Wedding day Saturday started off extremely HOT and then the rain clouds rolled in.. . but, we were able to make it through the pictures, ceremony and the cocktail hour with no rain!!  We originally had planned the reception dinner for outside by the pool, but by then the rain came in and they had to move everything inside.  The restaurant has an open concept and no air conditioning and after the rain (it lasted maybe 30 minutes) it was super hot and muggy. At the dinner table I had my dress all hiked up!! Ha Ha!  The only regret I have is that I didn't like my hairstyle for the wedding. . . .so we might take some additional photos .. . but I'm waiting to see how the all the photos look.


and then we  went to Jade Mountain!!  Oh Lily Rose you have chosen the most beautiful and ultra luxurious hotel EVER!! We loved every single minute of our stay there. You should definitely try and have the ceremony at the celestial terrace... from up there you have the Pitons in the background and also you have views of the most beautiful sunsets.  Message me any questions you might have. We loved it so much we are planning a vow renewal there in 5 years!!  Just be ready to climb up and down stairs!!! 


If anyone's interested in sneak pick of our pics check out our photogs blog.. . . www.christinehallphotograpy.com  .. . when you get to the site click on blog and scroll down.. . the first shot of us is us standing on a small dock -- the title is St. Lucia wedding.


I'll post more over the weekend for yall!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
