    I am back from my wedding! It was really an amazing experience. We had a group of about 40 and everyone got along and had a great time. We had a wedding, another couple got engaged, a wedding ring was lost and then found....endless laughter and many fun experiences shared!

     

    Of course, there were a couple of very minor, very tiny things that did not go as expected, but in comparison to what went right...I am the happiest girl ever! I am not going to list out all the goods and bads...because that is somewhere already on this thread. I will just list out a couple of things that I wanted to share:

    • We had 20 rooms booked. My sister had a brilliant idea to get a directly of our guests from the wedding coordinator. This helped out so much as when plans changed, we could easily make a phone call and leave a message.
    • When you get to the hotel, make sure you know what places are open on what days and for what meals. We had to switch our restaurants twice as one was no longer ope for lunch and another was not open on Sundays. No big deal...thanks to the phone directory we had.
    • Since my hubby and I were so busy...we hardly took any pictures. Thank goodness 4 of our friends took over 500 each. We created a photo sharing site on shutterfly.
    • We rented the Amp...even though we had a very detailed list of music, the people controlling the amp did not follow it. Whoever is your MC, make sure they are on top of those people.
    • Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! It goes by so fast.

      I meant "directory" instead of "directly".

            Congratulations ladies! I had one question for you both: Did you do the legal ceremony? If so, how was it? We decided to do a legal ceremony, but the script isn't allowed to be changed according to my WC i.e.., we can't do ouw own vows =( . So I'm wondering if it's OK or if they allowed you to include some other details?

             

            Thanks!!

                Jsal- how was the amp? Did it work ok and was it loud enough for dancing and stuff? We are planning on renting it as well but what do you mean about being ontop of whoever is in charge of the music? We were planning on just making playlists. But ya I guess we need someone to change them right- is that what you mean? Jenna- beautiful wedding and thanks for the pics!!

                  I had a symbolic ceremony so we were able to do our own vows.

                    Yes, the amp was definitely loud enough.

                     

                    There is an employee who changes out the playlists. We had things on our play list like, first dance, dinner music, last song, etc.... When dinner started, they did not play the correct music and also when we walked into the reception as the new Mr. and Mrs. a random song (not on any of the playlists) was playing. I had my brother-in -law MC the whole wedding and he was great, but I should have told him to make sure the correct music was playing too.
