Thanks! I spent numerous hours looking for my bouquet. I think this is the hardest part about having a wedding so far away - trying to find a picture of everything you want. There is NO such a picture exists!!! I think your combo sounds great! I didn't want to have all white flowers since my FI is also wearing all white.

You can make your just bigger to differentiate from bridesmaids bouquet. My bridesmaids dress has 2 shades of blue and light green. Then they are carrying something white & pink flowers. I am all over the place with my colors. But who cares!!! I do think pink and blue go together

Decisions!! Chong your bouquet is gorgeous!! I am trying to stick to budget so am only going to get a 60 bouquet if I can. Thats why I am unsure how I will differentiate it, maybe will bring some crystals to stick in the bouquet? that could work.
I heard that WC at the resort act as a MC and ipod controller. I am counting on that so we don't have to ask someone to announce us. 20 Days till our wedding!!!
I will let you know once I am back

Any thoughts? ideas?
We have 27 people coming to our wedding. What time is your ceremony? We definitely wanted to have the sit down dinner. Even though it's more money than we wanted to pay for (we are doing the $39 per person family style dinner), this is something we didn't want to skip on. I heard that many people changed their clothes and hang out at the pool all night. We didn't want to go out too far since we do want to go back to our room at some point and enjoy the moments together
We are also having the rehearsal dinner night before the wedding to have a chance to introduce everyone. Not everyone knows everyone...
You got plenty of time to think about what you want to do!!!
FYI - This is my preliminary schedule:
1pm: start to get ready (hair, makeup, etc)
4pm: private pictures (we decided to meet each other before the ceremony to take some pictures)
6:00pm: open bar (we decided to have the bar open first and start the dinner around 7pm)
7:00pm: first dance & cake cutting (we only have the photographers for 5 hrs so decided to cut the cake in the beginning so we can have pictures of it)

I have a party of 25 coming over with me and at the minute im trying to decide whether or not to have a private party or have the free option in one of the restaurants??? but then i have no idea what we will do afterwards, anyone who has any idea please share with me!!
Thanks in advance,
Haha.. my FI is not into dancing at all. We debated on the dance floor (maybe use the yoga platform area?) but decided to just have it.

Another idea that I have yet to discuss with FI because not sure he will like...is to have a night in Cancun afterwards...maybe some of the clubs will do a discount because it is a wedding....
