      Congratulations and welcome back :) We had the same bouquet with different color roses! I love that design, it's so fresh and clean. Yours sounds beautiful! Can't wait to see it, and all the pics.

            Thanks everyone.
            I think Beth will deliver the pictures to my home in about 3 weeks. At least that's what the contract says!!

            My bouquet was just like yours. I originally requested purple calla lillies but Nicole thought they would look fake so she suggested the ones like yours and I loved them so much!!!! They matched my dress perfectly. I will need help posting the pics as soon as they are in!! I have no clue. Oh, wait. I believe Beth is putting them on a website so that should be easy but I will be getting a ton of guests photos as well. Hang on girls!!

              One more thing: I believe our boat was late as well with the guests. My dad said they took the scenic route whatever that means. I wonder if Nicole needed more time to set up. I just know that the men were rushed once they arrived. They don't need much time to get ready anyway!! However my reception started so late. I didn't know what time it was!!

                Hmm- I thought it was cool that they took them on a scenic route and showed them Los Arcos. But after talking to my grandma, I kinda wish they wouldn't have. My grandpa had a really hard time motating over to the ceremony site. He has a bad hip and can't walk that fast. And then everyone complained that they had to go to the bathroom after drinking on the boat and couldn't. They didn't realize they were late until Nicole came running up. Oh well- but for future brides that have slower moving guests, I would almost recommend them not doing the "scenic" route.

                  Our boat was late too ... there was a private group/party on the beach and they wouldn't leave! So the boat "took it's time" getting to Caletas.

                    My grandma is a little slow moving. And always cold. So as you can imagine, she is being a real breath of fresh air about the whole thing.

                    Hey Marla, was it really cold coming back at night? I know mine isnt till December so the weather is different then anyway, but just curious. Also, was the water choppy?

                      I'm not Marla, but I'll answer. haha

                      It was cold-ish coming back. It wasn't OMG freezing, but it's definitely more comfortable with a jacket/sweater. Plus it's REALLY windy! I reminded all my guests to bring a jacket the night before the wedding- everyone did too. My guests had no complaints about the water- it was smooth sailing on the way back, but getting to LC I guess it was a little rougher.
