I loved it, and think it would look beautiful on the beach....it has a Grecian style.
How do you know when to stop looking? I really didn't want to try anymore on after this one....
I am SO EXCITED!!!!
I am having the same problem. I don't want to dictate what we do the entire time, but I feel like I should have things planned.
I am thinking that I may have the smores bonfire on Thursday, welcome party (with cigar roller) on Friday and then wedding on sat. Also, I found blow up beer pong tables online so on Sunday, most of our friends are staying we may have a tourney in the pool!
One month to go you must be so excited! What did you think of your site visit? Getting worried about not having been to ABH!
We wanted to do the smore bonfire, but they were very very restrictive as to the time. Over the phone the latest we could get was 6pm-8pm. In my opinion way too early, and it's still dinner time. When we got to the resort, they said they might be able to do 7pm-9pm....but we ended up just not bothering.
Love the idea of beer pong tables! Sounds like a lot of fun
Ladies....is it the outside vendor fee for every outside vendor you bring in?
ie. photographer and DJ from outside the resort x 2 outside vendor fees or 1?
Unless the outside vendor is staying at the resort for a minimum 3 days, then you have to pay the fee for each vendor. (you may need to check your contract, the vendor fee was $500. I think it has now increased?) We didn't have to pay the vendor fee for our photographer since they stayed the whole week with us.

That 's the one piece of advice I starting giving to destination brides. Start putting everything you plan on taking with you in one place in your house/apartment, just so that you can see how much it really is! We ended up with 4 large suitcases, 2 carryons, and 2 suitbags. And I tried to keep what I was taking down with me to a minimum LOL!
Jamie- We did Place cards for our tables too! I love that idea. And your welcome books look amazing- so professional!
