    Thanks Mwise!!!  It honestly wasn't too far off. LOL :-)  Elizabeth Medina is phenomenal and the credit must go to her!  She did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions of candid moments.

    What sort of IPOD dock did you travel with?  I am pretty sure that it was the BOSE one (does it have one large speaker?) -the one I was looking at is

    BOSE® SoundDock® II Digital Music System - Black

    Same sentiments as Murmel here, Hubs was in charge of this purchase but I just checked our box and he purchased the exact Bose system you listed above.  I do know that he purchased it from Amazon.com because it was cheaper than other places he'd priced and they offered free overnight shipping with his purchase.  We used it in our room, for our Cocktail party, and while lounging on the beach during our Honeymoon and it has outstanding sound.  The remote fits in your pocket too because we recently used it for our 4th of July Block Party and were able to change songs and volume from quite a distance.

      Your pictures look great!!! Your hair and makeup came out awesome!!!  Thanks for the input!! Also, good to hear they dont overbook the salon, because having a few moments alone would be nice before everything starts :)  What photographers did you go with??

      Hi MishMash!  I used the salon at AS and was styled by Edgar.  He did a WONDERFUL job and I didn't have a trial.  We met the moment of my appointment on my wedding day and he was exceptional!
       


      Hi Ally!  One here!  :-)  As you'll read above, I used AS's salon for hair and make-up and was BEYOND PLEASED!  I really kind of let the hair and make up thing fall under faith after figuring out that none of our guests could help me.  Another bride PM'ed me about sharing a hair / make up stylist, but she never wrote me back, so I just booked an appointment in the AS salon and I am thankful I went that route.  I packed all of my MAC make up, flat iron, and curling irons in the event that I hated the results of the salon and needed to make my own "repairs" or "touch ups".  I didn't feel like doing a trial because it was more important to me to be with our guests the day before (and we also had our Welcome Cocktail Party the day before our wedding.)  I booked my appointment through the WC's and had no clue who I was going to be assigned to.  When I arrived at 1pm, I was introduced to Edgar.  I showed him two pictures of how I wanted my hair (a low messy chignon / bun) and he did a BEAUTIFUL job.  I also brought all of my MAC make -up, but he had his own and I believe he actually had better colors than I had in my own personal stash.  :-)  All I said to him was, "I'd really like natural looking make up," and he nodded and went to work!  :-)  All I had to do was wash and blow dry my hair the morning of our wedding, arrive at the salon with a clean face, and Edgar took care of the rest.  We just recieved our wedding slideshow this past Friday and our photog blogged us.  I will post more pictures when we receive our CD.  I have posted some photos of my hair below so that you can see Edgar's work. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received regarding Edgar's work on my wedding hair and make - up.  Everyone who has seen our slideshow always asks who did it and is impressed.  Ask for him and please tell him I sent you!  He is a Sweetie Pie!!!!

      If I can make a suggestion for those concerned about fussy kids???  Just order them chicken fingers and fries through your WC.  They will add it to your detail sheet and you don't have to pay for it during your private reception.  We had 3 children at our wedding, order them chicken fingers and fries, and that was $70 plus dollars we saved on adult priced plates.  We didn't know this until we asked because we knew although they were 12, 10, etc.... they were not eating stuffed this or drizzled in sauce that. Just my two cents....

        Thanks again!  This is awesome, I am going to have to let Chris know and see what he thinks...I know we would use ours when we get home too!

        We did not have a legal ceremony, so I am not sure how different it would be. But we were allowed to input our own vows in. And really I think you could put anything in here at all. As well, you could have someone do a reading for you as well. They are fairly flexible with making the wedding of your dreams happen. (I realize there are likely parts in the legal ceremony that can't be changed, but I am sure you can add in with no problems!)

          Awesome!

           

          I have airmiles, so could get it for $90 instead of $350!!!  :)

          One question though, how did it pack?  hard to tell how big it is from the pic.  and were you worried with it on the beach/on the sand?

            I just went on a site visit to Azul Fives and LOVED it! I am waiting on confirmation of the date, but after that everything will be set. There isn't much activity on the Azul Fives forum so I think I will be joining you ladies! Hope that is okay. Wedding should be June 9, 2012 at Azul Fives. I'm so excited!!!

                I got Erin Blackwood on the phone today, we are going to set up a boudoir shoot for 3-4 weeks from now!!  :)

                I am pretty sure at dinner you said that you just got the proofs and did it through snap fish?  If I plan this root, how much time should I give to put it together/order?

                :)

                So pumped I got her!!!!!

                  You guys are awesome! It means so much that past brides still come on here to offer advice. I changed my menu to the petit gourmet and will be using bridesmaid bouquets as the centerpieces. That was an awesome idea. I now don't feel so bad about using the ipod. Thanks for saving me some money!!!! I still have 3 months to go, I hope I don't change everything again lol

                   

                  Couple more questions -

                  What are you guys using for your processional throw? Rice, bubbles or rose petals?

                  Anybody doing authentic maracas as a favor? Where can you find them on the island for a reasonable price? My coordinator didn't recommend shipping them to the hotel.

                  Anyone doing a welcome kit? We have bags for each guest with the weekend's itinerary of events along with a custom coozie. I'm thinking of having them delivered to the guest's rooms or given out at check-in.

                  What are your thoughts on custom champagne flutes and the cake serving set? I keep going back and forth. I don't want to bother with having to transport it down there but I also don't want to regret not having it as a memento as there are so many things we won't get to bring back (i.e. cake, bouquet, etc.)

                   

                  Thanks again!

                    I have no words to thank you for responding to my post. I have been concerned about my hair and makeup from the very beginning. Thank you so much for putting me at ease. Btw - you looked STUNNING!  Your pictures are gorgeous as well, you guys looked great. And the 80s hair? I'm just going to leave that alone lol Really, it looked wind blown (which it should as you were on the beach) so that is a good thing.....Congrats and thanks again!!!

                      Hey Ally,

                       

                      I have 3 months to go too....

                       

                      I am not going to have anything for a processional throw, although when I was going to, it was going to be rose petals.

                      I am doing the maracas, and if you search "maracas" on this site, you will find a ton of people showing pics/reviews of all sorts of maracas.  I am in Canada, but am probably going to order mine from the states, its a little more expensive for me, but we Canadian girls don't have as many choices, or none that I have come across anyway.



                      You guys are awesome! It means so much that past brides still come on here to offer advice.
