Thanks to everyone for your opinions on the BM dresses.  I totally appreciate it.  I think that if a) my sister (MOH) wants to, I'm going to go with her in purple and everyone else in turquoise.  I'm relieved that none of you think the 2 colors is too much!  I'm kind of excited at the vision of pulling it all together now.   (Of course, theme is still beach and main color still White!  haha)

I have 5 girls so don't feel bad. I actually was supposed to have 6 but you may have seen my post about my lovely "friend" that declined. (Back to topic) I LOVE the purple and turquoise together and was about to switch my colors (I like the way peacock feathers tie in with it) but my friend had already purchased her bronze dress. So, once again, if you look at my pics (not sure how much time you have since we don't have tickers) and don't like the dresses in two different colors, you know what NOT to do. Lol!

Oh right... I remember all that now.  I love your dresses!  They're going to look awesome.  I have tonnes of time still (May 27, 2011) so I'll be sure to think on it for a bit too.  And I too think the peacock feather idea is a GREAT inspiration. Thanks so much for your input!

I feel like I'm never going to make it to Jr. Member.  Sorry for the many posts in a row - it's partly because I want to be a JM and partly because multiquoting is just hard on the new forum  I'm sure I'll get better tho!  huh.gif

My FI thinks I am obsessed about accumulating the points... haha he is right!

 

 

 

I was trying to explain points and posts...FI looked at me like I was nuts....He's like "what does it mean that you're a member?"  i said "I get the word Member there"  He shook his head and went back to TV :)

You should check with your WC b/c I was told that you are not allow to bring your own decoration, use of mic, play your own music or make speeches, etc if you use the group reservation which is included in the wedding package. I am sure you can negotiate this but check with your WC first about the decorations. Also, you should consider having a private event if you are qualify for 20% off a private event promotion. We decided to do ours (just the reception rather than cocktail hour) due to the fact that we got 20% off.

 

 

 

 

I sent an email to ask that...because I was also wondering what happens to all the flowers that  are on the Gazebo..do we get to take those and use them for centerpeices or is that just for the ceremony.

I don't think I qualify for the 20% off...not doing a group agreement..it was too soon for most of the people invited to fully commit (I have my mom and one of my MOHs for sure) .  My TA said that later on if I have enough for a group...then she could try to negotiate and change to that...

I think there was a different promotion for that too...but because my wedding is so far out..they wouldn't give me that. I'm not too upset...got the room upgrade and the Free Wedding..I'm good for now and I'm sure there will be some amazing promotions throughout next year...

I think I'm ok with not doing a private event...but if I can get a really good price on it..we'll see...

It says we have to wash our hair before coming to the salon. Is this true, anyone? they don't wash our hair???

 

They tell you not to wash your hair because it is easier to style (especially for an updo) if the natural oils are there.  Hair holds shape better than if it is soft and conditioned :)

Hey ladies,

Good morning! I'm slipping this post in before work. but I was up all night thinking about this so if any one can offer suggestions please respond.  Ok. FI and I originally decided to switch resorts from AS to  an Eldoroado for our honeymoon.  we booked the honeymoon suit at AS but really wondering if switching resorts is truely worth it.  Are the Eldorados better than AS? Does anyone know how nice the honeymoon suit is at AS?  Has anyone seen any of the Eldorado resorts?  Need help making a decision so all your ladies advice is appreciated.

I was considering going to the El Dorado for a night or two as well. 

 

Girls, when you get 20% off a private event, say your reception - what exactly does it take 20% off of?  And I read that someone asked about the ceremony flowers, are they transferred to the reception site? 

 

And, is it lame to not hold a cocktail party and just have guests mingle at a lounge/bar for an hour?

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
