Thanks this was very helpful. We are thinking of doing an catamaran trip instead of a welcome dinner. Are you doing the drink & food option?

Picking the "perfect" destination has been so much harder than I expected. I have been very heavily researching countries and resorts for the past 6 weeks (feels like years), and I'm pretty excited to have picked Azul! I have never been there before, so reading everyones reviews has been extremely helpful.

Does anyone have any pictures of the garden gazebo they mention online? I've only seen one picture and it looks like it cant hold more than 10 guests?

Any other random tips for this first stage of the process?

Thank you all in advance!
Jaime
Welcome Jamie! Great choice!

My best advice is to make sure you pick a good TA - if you're using one.

AGREED! Also, if you pick a TA and end up not liking them shortly after, CHANGE immediately! Don't wait, it won't get any better :)

Yes we're doing the drink option. We're undecided on the food. The pictures of the food look sub-par to us, and there's such great food to be had at the resort. But, we don't want people to go hungry either.

We'll be sending out an evite for this sailing trip in a couple weeks. When people reply they'll have the option of telling us if they want the open bar option. Not everyone in our party drinks, so this is a good way for us to only pay for those who want it.

You should drive down the street and BRING you wedding party to the Sky Deck and watch it in person :) I may not have enough seats for you all since they're $16 per chair, LOL!!

Awww, I'm sure if you have someone video it or send her ample pictures she'll absolutely love it :)

I heard! Sorry for the bad weather, it's my fault. I prayed that it would be freezing while I was gone. At least you didn't get the 25 feet of snow I prayed for!

Good luck with your application! The garden gazebo?? I don't even know what that was. I'll have to check it out and then look through my pics for you.

ooh, my songs! This is what I have so far:

 

Bridal party (processional) aisle song - "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Bride aisle song - "Here Comes the Bride" by Bobby Morganstein (the island version--very upbeat and tropical!)

Wedding party (recessional) aisle song - haven't fully decided yet, but leaning towards "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz

 

during the sand ceremony, we are going to play "Wind Beneath My Wings." Both of my FI's parents are deceased, and this was their song, so this is our way of including them in the ceremony

 

Reception entrance song -

First dance song -

Father/daughter song - "Butterfly Kisses" (my dad had this song picked out 10 years ago :))

Mother/son song -

Cake cutting song -

Bouquet toss song - "Single Ladies" by Beyonce

Garter toss song -

Last song of the night -

 

that is as far as I have gotten...I want to include "Smile" by Uncle Kracker somewhere, but not sure where yet. My FI and I are thinking about doing a goofy first dance--has anyone seen this video? We are both goofballs, and this is our style, lol

    • 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
