From 6 to 7 we did dinner and dinner music, which I just had on my ipod. Then we did the dances, the cake cutting, and then the dancing!!
Did you rent the sound system? We are thinking about bringing an ipod docking station with speakers since we have such a small group....

Our WC recommended we change as little a possible. We ended up changing the vows only and adding the sand ceremony and got someone that could read English very well.

CAKE-CUTTING: Did you bring your own knife and spatula or did Moon Palace provide this?
CENTER PIECES: Did anyone get any centerpieces? How much do they cost? Are they in Glass Vases? Did anyone use LED's under their Glass Vases for extra glamour or is this just tacky
EXPO-CENTER: Has anyone had their dinner and dance at the ExpoCenter? I only got one tiny little picture from them and I would like to get your feedback as to if it is cute or not. My party will be small (28-40) people.
FAVORS: What favors did you all have? I am thinking about cookies as well as luggage tags and maybe a wine set (cork screw opener and a top).
SUNSCREEN: What kind of sunscreen do you recommend? I heard that you need biodegradable to swim with the dolphins, is this true? Where do you get them? What about sunscreen for your hair?
I get married next month and I am beginning to PANIC.

They then glanced at our receipts and sent us on our way. Didn't even take 10 minutes! I would definitely bring the receipts with you, just in case.

I get butterflies in my stomach everytime I stop to think about what day it is and how in just a few weeks I will be getting married!! OMG!
Just how windy was it when you were there? I'm trying to decide on a hairstyle and I keep hearing that it's best to put it all up, away from your face b/c of strong winds? Is that true?
Also, this is probably a dumb question but is there A/C in the rooms?
Vgirl, I'm attaching examples of ceremonies that Maribel sent me. I'm in the middle of writing mine. I'm using the "religious" one and changing it up quite a bit and hoping for the best!! We don't want an overly religious ceremony but I liked the format of that ceremony better.
