These are the only pics I have so far.  In the picture of the guests you can see the beach bbq in the background. (You also can see that we had one very drunk guest who couldn't hold his head up at all during the entire ceremony!! LOL)  It was VERY VERY VERY hot so please make sure you check out the weather.  I don't think anybody has a date coming up too soon so  maybe it will cool off by everyone else's wedding.

 

Here are the pics:

Love the pictures Danie!  They look awesome.  I love the pink and white BM dresses and the pink and gray GM shirts.  I did white pants on the guys too - they look so good!!!

 

Congrats on being a Mrs.!!  Too bad you could not stay longer at AS, but hey there is always your first anniversary or sooner!

It worked out fine and saved a lot of money because all we had to pay was $250 for the amplifiers and speakers.

 

If anyone has any questions about the resort or WCs ask away.  I'll be happy to answer.  And if anyone knows where reviews go please let me know.

Really? That's weird, I had my dress steamed the day before my wedding and they picked it up and brought it back like 2 hours later and it was perfect. Not a wrinkle in the whole thing and it was satin so I was shocked... AND it was $13.

 

Good thing to keep in mind is that when you know your dress is coming back, don't let your FI open the door... he opened it and my dress is out of the bag exposed for all to see and he literally opened the door and flew back into the room and was like "It's your dress, I didn't see it!!"

My TA says the only rooms with Double beds are on the family side. Stupid Question but that isn't a big deal if all they are doing is sleeping right. They will be over on the adult side with us partying most of the time.

I have a couple single gals coming as well but they have all said they don't mind sharing a bed on the adults side  

 

Did anyone else run into this?

I'm glad you brought this up. I didn't even think that far but I hope my guests have smile35.gif

Love it!  My sister swears that i will just want to wear my wedding dress again, and really I have the opportunity to wear it twice, so will probably just do that.  Do brides wear their dresses again at the AHR??  I hope so! 

Cute dress!

I don't have Fay but I had Cecile and I miss her too. Fabio just said that she's "no longer with the wedding department." I wonder what other depts. they have or if they just let her go? She was good. I just got in touch with my new WC (Carolina) after a month! We have a phone call scheduled Monday so hopefully she blows my socks off.

I got the name of my WC from my TA. I had to contact her 1st because according to the contract and other info they suggested I START planning Aug 14th! I get married Nov12. So this shows how laid back they are about it all. I would say ask your TA or email Fabio to see who you're assigned to. Even when I was just re-assigned to another WC I had to contact her although I was told she would contact me.

Hey girls,

 

Was looking to get an opinion on this dress.  I think it's the perfect color, totally cute, inexpensive, and to top it off it's ID number is the same as my FI's work ID - mean to be!  But, one of my BM's said it's not very beachy.  I think it looks like a BM's dress though. 

 

Thoughts??? 

I think its a cute dress and I love the color. I'm not sure how short it is and if you have heavier girls in the wedding but I would just take that into consideration. If you think it would look nice on all of them, I say go for it! You cannot beat $30!! Your BMs should love you for that.

I agree! I would say narrow down to 2 at the most then take a vote if you just really want to be diplomatic. Or you can get one of them involved whose opinion you really trust and only consult her on the options. Getting the opinions of all of them could be overwhelming.

Congrats Mrs!!!  thewave.gif

 

I am glad the iPOD worked out. That's what we are doing and I am starting to comply the list of songs. Would you be willing to share your list? I am asking my friends and family to help me with the song list. Most likely I will have to buy most of the songs on iTune.

 

What time was your ceremony? Who was your photographer? You look BEAUTIFUL!

 welcome4.gif I think the most important thing is reserving your ceremony and reception sites. And make sure you read through this forum (even though it's super long) but there are so many "deals" or "discounts" you need to be aware of.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
