Are those of you who are doing the "hand ceremony" also doing a sand ceremony? I think this is also really cute but wasn't sure if it was strange to do both?
We currently are doing the sand ceremony but I now want to incorporate the hand ceremony too. Still have to run it by FI, though. I don't think it would be strange to do both at all! It's your ceremony to write as you wish.

Our sand ceremony is right before our vows, so I'm thinking we could incorporate the hand ceremony one of two ways: either at the start of the ceremony to get things going, or perhaps at the start of the sand ceremony. My thinking there is that since we're pouring the sand with our hands, and the idea behind the sand ceremony is the uniting of two separate things, we might be able to make it work. Dunno, just thinking out loud here!

Thanks! I felt like total crap yesterday but put my game face on and powered through. Unfortunately, I feel even worse today and am rapidly going downhill. I am not a happy girl right now...

We're taking our guests on a catamaran trip. It's our gift to them for coming.

We are also doing the flan, not such a hit huh? Is it something that can be changed since it is a preset menu? The rice pudding didn't really sound good to me. And, I read your comment about Tiffany...is there a way to get a differant coordinator? She has been getting on my nerves. I am interested to hear what problems you had with her, because I don't need any more planning problems. She has totally ignored my email about honoring the fabric quote. She answered the other questions but totally ignored the fabric thing. I don't really know how to reach her supervisor or how to request a different coordinator.

I'm with you ladies on the money thing. We're paying for everything ourselves (including footing the bill for my mom to go to Mexico), and it's been tough. February was the "uh-oh" month for us. Photography payments and room payments came due. Up until then it had been small payments (that added up to quite a lot, mind you), but now it's huge payments at one time. It's hard to wrap my brain around these dollar figures!! Next up, on Wednesday our Karisma payment is due for the wedding.

Whatever happened to parents and family footing the bill, lol??
I hear ya girls! We are also paying for the wedding ourselves, we have had no help what so ever, and like you, we are paying for my mom and also paying for my FI's sister and her 6 year old twins. This is definitely panning out to be much more than we were originally hoping to spend. We are also then paying for the AHR in June.....don't know quite how we'll do it yet. 2 weeks or so an our final payments will be do on all three rooms we're paying for, oh and we just added our photographer so 4 rooms, and the wedding. It will completely drain the savings account and everything after that for and the AHR will have to go on a credit card, might have to max it out and then transfer the balance to an interest free card to pay it off. This wedding stuff is stressful, I'm trying to find ways to cut corners but Karisma does not make it easy!

We included our photographers in everything since we brought them with us, we wanted them to feel like part of our group. If you are using someone at the resort i would say you don't have to feed them, they should know to eat before they come and shoot.

Sammy, if you are getting the silver package or above the sand ceremony is included.

Sooo exciting! I can't wait till I get my wedding band!! They are in the process of being made, but probably won't have them for a while.
I'm getting pretty bored being home for march break, so I think I'll take a picture of my wedding shoes and try to post it. Would someone mind letting me know how to post pics?
