    I can't believe I just saw this - WOW Rachel, AWESOME REVIEW!!!!
    PS
    Don't feel alone. I can't get on an escalator without actually having to think about it and time it right. FI laughs about it every time even after 3 years together. And I can not walk down or up stairs without holding on to a rail. Those stairs are my worst fear. Mom said that I should wear shoes at least to the sand, but having to handle my dress, make sure I don't miss a step, hold on to a rail, and risk being tripped by my flip flops or kicking them off...no thanks!
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am so glad to know there are more of y'all out there! hahahaha I know I've said this before in the LC thread but I am T-E-R-R-I-F-I-E-D of falling down stairs! Sometimes it gives me a panic attack! It's a really good thing LC is so amazing because I would NEVER walk down that many stairs anywhere else for my wedding!

    Rachel - there isn't a rail to hold onto on the stairs, right? I think instead of walking down the "final steps" all by myself I'm going to have to have my Dad meet me up there and get a good hold on me - lol!

    Thanks again for the amazing review - soooo helpful

      Hell no! When we exited the suite and walked past the spa I looked down the stairs and thought "Oh shit." Meanwhile, Nicole is running down them saying "try to hurry girls. It's almost time." I just stood at the top for awhile trying to figure out how to do it. My MOH/sister stopped and came back up when she saw I didn't move. She tried lifting my dress for me but that just made me feel less stable. I ended up scooping the whole thing up and slowly walked down with my dress around my waist. I probably exposed a little too much, but I was stinkin nervous! Nicole saw me and laughed. She said she wished more photographers captured this part with the bride's dress hiked up to the waist.

      When I finally got to the point where I was in front of everyone, I probably looked like a clumsy idiot. I can't wait to see photos of it because I can't remember if I let my dress fall down a bit more. I was too nervous and I don't really remember that part much.

        Jaime, my dad came up to the bridal casita and walked me down all of the stairs the whole way. He came up there, our photog took some pics with my dad and I and then he walked me down - one of my bm's took my flowers, and I just held on to my dad's arm the whole way down....much better than walking down with nothing to hold on to!

        PS: AWESOME review Rachel - I laughed and cried! Brings back so many memories!

                  At least you made it to the beach! I didn't leave the casita all day ... so sad. Well, Nicole made me walk down once so she could ask me how I wanted the ceremony set up (the "L" shape aisle, or the straight one). Then I went right back up! lol
