    Rachel, thank you again so much for your review, and may I also join the call to see more pictures please when you get them!

    I am also so excited to have you shoot our Nathaniel! Now that things have really fallen into place I am relaxing and actually let myself picture the whole thing! As of today we have officially got room blocks for both our American and Canadian guests at the Dream Hotel, so that's one more thing down!

    Oh yeah, and I'm starting Team-in-Training next week so hopefully my legs will be in solid shape for going up and down the stairs by January!

      Awesome review Rachel! I especially liked the part about the wrong music during the cermony - I was laughing out loud! Everything looked so beautiful. Can't wait to see pics of you in your dress!

        So, the thing about burning a hole in the dress...you didn't really get into that. How on earth does that happen? Where on the dress was the boo boo? I'm guessing it wasn't THAT bad, but inquiring minds want to know (and see pics).

          Oh, there's drinking on the day trip! That is how I did my site visit, and they were bringing us tequila sunrises and stuff the moment we got on the boat!

            There wasn't a steamer at the hotel and they could send it out to get steamed but I didn't trust to get it back. As I was ironing all the groom's and best man's outfits I thought "hmm...maybe I should try to steam the dress out with the iron." So I began to steam the dress- worked out ok. I was nearly done and I accidentally touched the lace overlay with the iron and melted/scorched a hole in it. It was one spot about a dime size and another between a nickel or quarter in size. I freaked out- started to panic. Wanted to show Steve the hole, but I also didn't want him to see the dress since I didn't let him see it for nearly a year.

            I told him what I did and started to cry. He reassured me a little then called my mom to come look. My mom couldn't believe how stupid I was so she called my sister to share the story. My sister came over and they both made fun of me for a bit. Then they both reassured me it wasn't that bad since it was on the upper butt area and no one would notice. I don't know if they meant no one would notice because it was small or no one would notice because they wouldn't be looking at my butt.

            I just decided to get over it and have a attitude. It was easier to make jokes about it than to cry about it. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of it. I should have, but I didn't. Who knows- maybe I will have a lot of pictures of it if it shows up on film. hehe

            I've emailed my photog to find out when I get pics back. Haven't heard from her but my contract says 3 weeks. According to my calculations, one more week.
            Happily married since 2008

                Ooooh yes, and they make excellent pina coladas too. Make sure you get some of those on the boat if you like them cause they don't have blenders on the island!!

                    Make sure you have the rum punch - not sure if they have this during the day tour (I can't remember it) but on Rythms of the night they have it for sure - it is to die for!!!! We requested to have that specifically as our "drink" for the wedding - so Nicole made sure we had lots of it for the reception - and on the boat!!!!

                      On another note - I am seriously considering organizing a BDW get together/LC trip for next March - would anyone be interested? I'm thinking we could do something similar to what Tammy (host) is doing in Cabo this year - except do it in PV and have everyone go to Las Caletas!!!!!

                      Anyone interested? Maybe I need to create a new thread!
                      HMMMMMMM

                      (sorry for the hijack! - I tried to find the smiley - couldn't find it!)
