      Hi everyone!


      Thanks for the sweet comments everyone!! 


      LilyRose I was so happy about my flowers!!  I did not have to import them, my hotel was able to work with a florist in Castries to get them for me. So I would definitely check with Jade and they  should be able to do the same thing for you. 


      Everyone take bug spray!!!  My hubby didn't get bit at all, but I was eaten ALIVE!!  My legs looked absolutely horrible and my hubby referred to all my bites as "wounds" :(   ... better safe than sorry. I didn't see that many bugs but then in the morning I would have a ton of bites so my advice is to just spray some bug spray everyday even if you don't see any bugs.  I am still suffering from my bites after two weeks.  LilyRose at Jade Mountain what we did was bring some citronella candles and we lighted them in the bathroom (that's where we saw the most bugs) and around the pool and that seemed to help. Definitely make sure you keep the mosquito netting around the bed completely closed off. .. . some pesky mosquitos would get in and those suckers were HUGE!!


      Enjoy the planning ladies!!

        Thanks Monica Mai for your advices!


        Did you bring the citronella candles from home or they were provided by Jade ? I know that they provide coils but maybe just in "high mosquitoes season". LOL

          Congrats Monica Mai! 


          You look fantastic and so content and happy!  Do you happen to know what vendor your coordinator got the flowers from? 


          Only 1 more month for me...

            Hey everyone!! Hope everyone is enjoying your planning!!


            LilyRose -- we brought our own citronella candles with us to burn. I bought two packages of three and just fit them in my suitcase. I think I did see coils, but we've never used those before so we just stuck with what we had.


            Julee -- I'll check with Ladera and see if I can get a name for you about the flower vendor.


            I am so excited for all you!!!

              Love that gorgeous fuschia, Wilsonj2! The color reallly pops against the white. Best of luck in your planning!

              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....
