Since we are doing AS for the wedding, I thought it would be fun to go back to one of the adult only places if we return.
I have taken 2 of their webinars and they are great :)

I'm right there with you guys. I refer to you as all as my "forum friends" and it is hilarious because when I'm talking to muy family and I don't have an answer for something, my Dad will say, "Well did you ask your forum friends?" We laugh everytime because all my immediate family knows this is more of a resource for me than the paid WC and AS folks.

So, I, in no way wanted my wedding to interfere with that. I got sick of fussing about it so the cruise is officially off. I still tried to look into keeping my site visit appointment but flights are more expensive than I expected.
I'm sorry Meredith! I know how much of a treat this would have been for your to get some of your visual curiousities satisfied. If it is any consolation, like you said.....you and FI will get to take it all in together and enjoy the aww of the moment in each other's company. Good memories!!! :-)

I know we've probably discussed it before but I just decided to try to get one so I didn't pay attention before.smile35.gif We were going to use our iPods but that's making me nervous now for some reason.
I too have started wondering about DJ's that AS ladies have used. This is FI's task and he even came on here in the vendor section to research! Go him!!! :-) He said he read good things about DJ Doremixx and DJ Mannia. I think he will be reaching out to both for info and pricing and if we get it before you, you know I'll share.

Ditto! ESPN for FI + BDW AS thread on the laptop on the couch for me = A content couple! cheer2.gif

Anyways, anyone who has been married there, I am thinking of having my reception in the area by the pools and I was wondering if anyone had had their reception here, if so, what kind of lighting was supplied if any. I am not wanting big center peices and I remember one bride saying she didn't have center peices and they put candles on the table anyways. There is a thatched roof structure and I was wondering if they put any lighting under there or do I need to ask(and pay) for that. Thanks!!
Hi there, I had my reception by the pool and it was the perfect place for our group. We had 65 guests (so nine tables or so), I brought LED lights for the round pink decorations for the staff to hang and the DJ also brought lighting. We didn't have any trouble with being able to see our meal, etc. I thought it was perfect. Here is a pic for you to see, it's not totally dark yet, but you can still get an idea of the set up:

I saw them at work today. Wow. I am totally envious. The pics are great and looks like you guys had an amazing time. Honestly, I spend so much time on this forum and chatting with you ladies and looking at your photos that I am started to feel like I know you. Especially you Amy because your info comes up on my facebook feed everyday and with all the weeding pics hard not to look. Please don't be scared though. wink.gif He he.

BTW, I am sure that you all have probably experienced this by now but FI thinks I am crazy for talking about you guys and your weddings. He thinks I live off in this virtual world somewhere talking about a bunch of fake people and their fake weddings. I had to remind him that without this forum and my "virtual world" that I would be completely lost and much more stressed without all of your tips and advice. To that he cheers'd me. :)

WTH? Transportation breakdown. I'm glad you were able to get passed all that. Seems like you all had a blast. It is really so amazing that you had so many friends come and that they could come to both. What, do you all live the fab life?
Haha!!! I try to live it up, I really do AND I do go overboard that's for sure. I can't deny that... I am a fun lover, I can have fun doing anything and going anywhere... laundromat, alleyway, 7-11, doesn't matter. I think it's because I don't really get too embarassed and I can handle actin' a fool and I dance everywhere, DH always looks at me with a little smile shaking his head... :)

Glad you liked the photos, I had SO much fun! I feel like I know you girls too so it's not weird. I throw up so many photos and now a video so I think I'm become more real... since your FI thinks we're all fake, LOL! We are very real, I assure you. I would happily meet any of you in person, I'm proud of my forum friends and talk about you girls all the time. I'm going to Cassie's wedding from the forum in 2 weeks and get to meet her, I'm so stoked!

My group of friends all tend to lead fun lives, we see each other often and attend a lot of social gatherings or just hang out & BBQ :)

Thank you again!! Yeah it was such the polar opposite from Mexico, which was perfect. The real wedding and then super laid back wedding.
Don't worry I'm scemeing to get this limo company back!

I would definitely take them down Amy, that's soooo unprofessional. I'm glad you had fun despite it all but I know you were looking forward to that.

HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY AMYKH (in case I miss you Sunday)!!! smile29.gif
Yeah I am pissed in general due to their SERIOUS lack of professionalism etc. Can't even believe it... THANK YOU for the birthday wishes! =)

HAHA!!! You girls kill me!!! I wish I was a wealthy socialite so I could say, yes I really DO lead a fab life! Reality is, I work my booty off 12 hours a day now and don't have time for much else sad.gif

Awww, that's too bad, just know that you don't need one. Once you'll get there and meet the onsite coordinators you'll say in your head "Amy was right, this is totally under control!" =)

I don't but I know that both Doremixx & Mannia are great. I used Mannia and even talked him down on his price. They did a great job, MC'd the whole thing, had all my songs, took my suggestions etc. Brought and set up lights and everything.

Same here, DH was on the computer playing games and I'm chatting with you girls! He has never thought it was weird either since he plays games online and talks to people he's never met before too!

Amy, What is that little face meant for anyways? Its super cute!

 

Regarding the DJ - I had whoever the hotel gave me and they were AWESOME. They had a DJ that did not speak English and an MC that did. If the MC is important to you, i would recommend using a family member or friend b/c they weren't totally clued in. Not their fault - its just that I never got to meet the MC or DJ until I got introduced, so I could not tell him what I wanted him to do it or how. Not a big deal but I wanted my name to be said and not just Mr & Mrs - but thats how they introduced us. In regards to the music, lights, bubble machine and smoke machine, everything was great.

 

Whoever asked about costs, etc, I would be more than happy to break out my expenses if you want to PM me.

 

I am working on my planning thread now, so hope it'll be up this weekend!!!!

    • 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
