My sister also used the nanny services when we wanted to do things at night. PM me if you have any questions about that and I can forward them to her.

 

How do you like Jennifer so far?

 

On Delta, your bags would be free. My in-laws flew Delta but we flew Continental and our 2nd bag was $27. The same goes for American and US Airways, also.

Reception question - I am having my reception at Plaza Zavas.  I'm trying to work in a slide show.  I wondered if anyone has ever inquired about bringing their own laptop and projector but renting a screen only and the cost they were quoted?

Great pictures!  I too am interested in your OOT bag contents...where did you find the "Oh S#!t kit" container and was it filled with the contents already?  And the spanish for dummies - was it the pocket guide you can find on-line?

Thanks for sharing smile159.gif

The lighting on thr trees are provided by the resort. We didn't pay for them. The only thing we had were LED tealights on the tables and paper laterns. We had 6 large and 12 small lanterns and I think that was enough lighting. It wasn't too dark but intimate IMO.

We had the welcome cocktail party the day before the wedding. After that we had a rehearsal dinner (the rehearsal was supposed to be before the cocktail party but that didn't happen). There was also the wedding and reception of course.

The bags came from Dollar Tree!! Yes, they were only $1 and  my mom's friend embroidered them for us as our gift. I have to say I think that was the best find. They're seasonal, though, and they come out in March. They come in yellow, light blue, red, green and hot pink. None of these were my colors but I couldn't pass up the bargain so everyone just has assorted colors. If one of those are your colors though, I would recommend hitting all of the stores in your area if possible and you should be able to get enough. You may also be able to order them by the case but they would have to be assorted if you do it that way.

I wanted to do a slide show but they quoted me $600 for the projector. I think I remember someone saying that just the screen is about half that price.

This is why I shoud really have done a planning thread embarrest.gif. Please forgive me! Most of the items I got from Dollar Tree. The Oh Sh!# Kit was actually a 1st Aid Kit from Dollar Tree and I bought the labels from Office Depot and cut them down to fit the container. The kit came with bandages and gauze I believe. I added a few things to the kit like Motrin, Pepto-Bismol, Zyrtec, and B-complex. I also had info in there about what to do to avoid a hangover. I got the Motrin and Pepto from Ebay (be careful if you decide to do this, I would only get it from top sellers) and I get free Zyrtec samples because I'm a pharmacist.

 

If anyone wants the template for the Oh Sh!# Kit, just PM me your email address.

 

The Spanish for Dummies I got from Ebay. Those were $1.50/book. If you just ask some of the sellers on there, they will go down on the price. I did see the pocket guide that you can get online and I was about to do that if I didn't get a good deal on the actual books.

I just wanted to share something that I didn't put in my review.

 

PUT YOUR DRESS, SHOES AND ACCESSORIES IN YOUR CARRY-ON!!!

 

My Matron of Honor's luggage was lost and she didn't get it back until an hour before the reception was over. Imagine if she had her dress in there. Her shoes were in the lost luggage and that's why we all decided to wear flip flops as a sign of solidarity. But there's no way around you or a bridesmaid not having a dress. They actually made my mom check my dress which was in a bag with hers, my sister's, my flower girl's and my ring bearer's tux. She actually started crying and I thought she was insane but I understand now what could have gone wrong.

Hey girls,

 

Just wanted to ask for those of you who have been there, how many of the paper lanterns do you think are needed for Zavaz Plaza?  I have a girl who is going to sell them, and my first thought (based on what she has to sell) is to buy 5 turquoise and 5 white of the 12" lanterns, and then all her little ones, 8", which is about 19. 

 

Sound like a good combo?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
