Beer - he wants lots of selection - like 2 six packs of everything! He just finished organizing the shuttle vans from hotel to the location -- it took him weeks and he sees how much work planning a wedding is now

Lastly, I got on the scale this morning, and yes I did have a couple bottles of wine between friends last night so I probably was a bit dehydrated but it said I hit my target wedding weight and lost 25 pounds!!!!! I am so excited!!!!! Probably will not step on the scale before I leave now and just keep this high note.
OK, going to the beach to work on my tan now. Tomorrow is a spa day and finish packing, leave Monday at 6am!!!! woo hooooooooooooooooo
YAY for the food course listings--OMG adorable!
Super big YAY for the 25 pounds! FANTASTIC!!!
And the biggest YAY of all cuz you're leaving in less than 48 hours!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!

So sorry to hear about your friend. How wonderful you were able to have someone in your life that you connected with and saw as an inspiration.
I agree with everyone on the invites. No reason to send them to people who've already said no. It's both a waste of money and you could possibly make people feel worse if they really want to go but can't for whatever reason. If I got a STD that said "Invitation to Follow" but I had already said no to going, I would definitely not expect a formal invitation.
As for all the other stuff, you also don't need to include that with the invites. You can send an information packet before you go if you like (or newsletter), or you can just let them know once they get there. For us, when our guests checked in they got an itinerary for the weekend and our ceremony details.

I'm a Newbie and just joined BDW about 3 days ago. My FH and I signed our contract last week for a May 2011 ceremony at the Azul Sensatori. I found this site after searching for reviews on MR photographers and I have been lost ever since. :-) I spent hte past 2 days just trying to read this thread alone and have only gotten about 75 pages completed. I posted twice, once as the automated welcome email asked me to, and another in a 2011 Brides thread. I have not received any responses thus far, so I don't even know if I'm posting correctly on this site. :-/
Anywho, it looks like there are quite a few of you in here and if anyone who has recently married at the Azul Sensatori is game to "initiate or haze" me into what what to expect and which vendors I should be looking at closer, please feel free! I am all ears and eager to accept all advice I can get.
Oh and I have to share with you all that I am trying to break the bank to get Elizabeth Medina to photograph our wedding!!! I found her site by accident and I AM IN LOVE with her work!!! If anyone has experience with her as well.....I'm ALL ears!
Have a great Sunday, Ladies and I so look forward to getting to know you all!
All the best!

I have 2 suitcases packed and Mark has 3 (2 of which are the OOT bags). I have the wedding details sheet printed as well as our ceremony and readings; packed my USB key with all the details. Shoes - check; dress - check; rings - check!!!
I am so nervous and excited !!!! This has been over a year coming and I am so happy its here but also sad that it means my wedding planning days are over. Its been a roller coaster of emotion, starting from when, 2 months after getting engaged, FI got transferred to Boston and we've been living apart for 9 months. I can't say I regret anything - even my stupid travel agent got us a beachfront massage and our guests on the short list for upgrades, so it seems it was just a hassle more than anything looking back. Very surreal now...
Anyways, I will post my planning thread and review when I get back. Hope you all have a great week and think of me on May 29th!!!!

I've been thinking about you today knowing that you leave in the morning. Reading your post just gave me serious goosebumps!!! I know you are going to have the most fabulous, fabulous wedding! Azul Beach will really take care of you.
Let's see, say hello to Mayra, Manuel, Nadia, Reveca, Tony, Hans, Angel, Martin, Antonio, Carlos, Eduardo, Axael, Oscar, Alejandro, the list goes on!! Yes, they're so great I even remember their names and what they did for us.
I CANNOT WAIT to hear all about it when you get back!!!!!! I will relive every moment of my own wedding and live vicariously through you!!
HOOOOOOOOOOOORAY for you!!
