That would be hysterical. Some brides have catamaran tours, my wedding party gets a scavenger hunt on the beach for large drapes of fabric. Hahahahaha. AWESOME! Seriously tho, I bet they would charge a $300 holding fee to store it if you left it with them. Too bad, or all the brides on here could just pass the fabric from one to the next.

Oh and the veil. I got mine off ebay. But, when I was in salons trying on different veils to find a style I liked, I was 3 months out and they told me that would be cutting it really close.

You have no idea how happy this picture makes me. I want to print in out and put it on the fridge so that when i get stressed I can look at it and say. Someday I will get a picture with the donkey. I know it is silly to be so excited about a donkey but for some reason he takes me to a happy wedding place when i am stressed. :)

Celina, would love to know how this works out for you, with cost; fitting in suitcase etc. as I'll probably consider the same.

I was thinking about it but I am undecided. What did everyone else do?

I'm glad to hear this! I was avoiding getting a signature drink because of the cost, but I will wait till I get there and ask for it then.

I had a sweetheart table with all the tables staggered in front of me and the dance floor off to the side, worked well! No one was sitting at the tables after dinner really and everyone could still see the dance floor from the tables if they were.
What is a sweetheart table? And where did you have your reception?

I wore a veil...Everything was custom made for me and I started the process 8 months in advance. I'd say 4 months would be safe for a veil...depends on where it is coming from.

Get the house wine & house champagne. I swear I love expensive wine and so does my Dad and his GF - and we all LOVED the resort's white and really liked the red. I wasted $$ by ordering "special" wine and no one even knew any better.

I borrowed a veil from my best friend and was going to wear it in pictures. I love those flying veils in the wind on the beach. I left it in the hotel room and never got the pictures I love. Oh well!
If you go to a good seamstress, maybe they can make the veil for you while you get the dress fitted? I would definitely FIND a seamstress now; I dont think you need to be fitted yet, but definitely start looking for one and plan to decide 3 + months out. I cut it close and was cool about not having my dress until the week we left but other people started to make me nervous when they heard I did not have my dress back yet !!

My schedule was:
430 - wedding
5-7 - cocktails
7-11 - reception

I would push the wedding up 1/2 hour to 4pm and do pictures with the groups from 430-5 then pics w/ FI from 5-530/545.
I agree with you too Amy! 4pm would have been a better choice than 5pm. I had an hour and a half cocktail hour which was surprisingly not long enough. I didn't do pictures before the ceremony due to traditional DH who didn't even spend the night with me before the wedding.

so excited!

We put down the 10 deposits this week to hold a group rate with our TA and then people only have about a month to join the group at the held rate. I better get on STDs real fast. We're planning to do email STDs and then traditional invitations (for the time factor mainly).
Ahhh so exciting!!! Congrats, you're official!

YAY!! I actually had my WC in Miami do this for me, to be honest it was her idea! You can always ask and if they say no, have the onsite coordinators take care of it.

No you're not behind at all. I bought my dress in August 2009, it came in late February, had my final dress fitting 3 weeks before my wedding.

I wore a tulle cage veil and I loved it so much I wore it all night long. I am going to post some pictures here for any of you who are interested.

Oh good! Yes, just don't forget to ask for whatever you want, it doesn't hurt!

A sweetheart table is a table just for you and your husband. It was better that way for us just with the number of people we had and so everyone could see us. I'll put up a picture.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
