    BigBop...forgot to say that I would LOVE to see your pics if you don't mind OM'ing me the link. :) Thanks!!!

And will be thrilled to recieve such a wonderful exciting and thoughtful gift like this. I bought a cheap set of satin sheets to drape across me to hide certain areas, and it turned out looking sexy and intriguing. Take a few different pieces of sexy lingerie, and one of your FI shirts to wear! I wore one of my FI dress shirts and it turned out to one of his favorite shots.
    I too wore FI's shirt, that must be the "in" thing? ;-)

We didn't think we could get married on the beach the day before our wedding, because it was sooooo windy, but the night before the wedding coordinator told us it would be great, and it was. It was the most beautiful day ever and I want to do it all again!
    I"m so tired right now, so I'm going to be short, but all I can say is it is a FANTASTIC place to get married. No one has any reason to worry at all. I will post pictures as soon as I get some from friends. If anyone wants to add me on facebook to see pics, please do (meghan yao!)
    Congrats MEGHAN!!!!!! Welcome back Mrs!!!!!! Can't wait to hear all about it and see photos!!!! I love it when you AS brides return with great stories and positive energy!!!

I'm trying to recruit my MOH to do it with me for her husband. Too bad he's the one who took our engagement pics and she said hell no when I asked if she'd be comfortable with him doing my BD pics! Lol.

    bigboponthebeach - I've been on the invitations thread lately but you're on a roll girl! I'm almost positive that unless someone slips me a mickey I'm not gonna go totally nude either. I like the idea of a sheet and one of his shirts. Don't even think I can do the panties although I just racked up @ Vicki's Semi-annual sale! I'll put you on standby cause I may text you for a little pep talk when I do it.

    amandamarieb - I say we all do the BD shoot. I'm game now! Still embarrassed but all in! Too bad if I were you, I'd want to crash that bachelors weekend tho!!
    DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!
    Quick question for all of you....did you use a DW specialist to book your travel and group and wedding? I am currently using destinationweddings.com and have ZERO complaints with my TA..she always gets back to me..explains everything..etc....
    BUT..I'm thinking it is possible she might be overcharging...my sister has a TA friend and tried pricing out the hotel for the same days and it was A LOOOOOT less. Did any of you switch TAs and is there any special etiquette for doing it? It comes down to price for me...and I don't want my sister's friend to do all this work for nothing...so if she can save me $$$ I would switch....Thanks
    I too am using DW.com. We are on our second TA with DW.com and all has been great since then! We had a rocky start with our first TA and tried to give ourselves about a month or so to warm up to her. It didn't happen so we emailed the Manager and were reassigned. As far as pricing, any good TA should be open to getting you the best price. The RA's on here are awesome as well, especially Wendy Hicks, who was kind enough to give us an estimate. A good TA is worth their weight in gold!!!

    Otherwise, switch TAs. There's no harm and you're perfectly within your right to do so. There's no special etiquette involved; your DW.com TA will know it was b/c of price.
    I completely agree with Wendy here! No one can knock you for switching TA's to obtain the best prices for your guest. A good TA should have that same interest at heart for you.

    I started out with dw.com but switched later. I noticed too that they were a lot more expensive. However, if you like your TA, just send her the cheaper options you found, and she should be able to match it. I even sent my TA now some cheaper options on Orbitz and she matched. IF you are looking for a new TA, I HIGHLY recommend Wendy Hicks @ BDW (Wright Travel Agency). SHe is SO SO SO SO SO SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    SENT!!!!!
    I second your thought on Wendy. She was awesome to talk to and gave us an estimate for our ceremony when we were considering leaving DW.com. Unfortunately, her prices were the exact same as DW.com, but that was out of her control and they were using the same vendor to pull prices.

    I am still waiting from pictures from Claudia too - her contract says 4-6 weeks. I have my friends photos for now but an DYING for the professional ones. Then again, with all this AHR planning, I probably should only be doing that and not looking at my pictures for hours on end :)
    Can't wait to see them! I know you are on pens and needles with anticipation!

    I started a wedding web site..here's the link if any of you want to check it out...
    We used Erik Rodriguez, and his contract is the same ...4-6 weeks. He said it is high season right now, and has to use photoshop. We saw some on his camera and they looked amazing!

    It's gotta be six weeks by now for you, isn't it?
    Can't wait to see your's as well! I think the anticipation is going to kill me following our return! :-)

      Sooo whos up next
      I used the Wedding Holiday, like Nicole. No one could find better rates and they don't charge any additional fee to use them. They were so fantastic. They even surprised me by getting us a cocktail party. When we were in Mexico, the wedding coordinator told us that the Wedding holiday bought us a cocktail party...I don't think many other TAs would do that.
      Great TA and great surprise!

      Does anyone know anything about karismas online honeymoon registry? I went to the site and azul sensatori was not an option when I went to sign up.I'm also unsure if I want to do it b/c it charges a 7% tax to guest.
      I honestly haven't looked into that because I had already set one up with
      finally, the talk about "forum friends" hahah. I actually went to a meet&greet for Vancouver brides on here (one of the only other threads I follow) the other day and my fiance would not stop teasing me. "Oh, you go on blind dates with your internet brides now?" Hahaha. Priceless that we're all getting the same grief. They just don't understand! This forum has set my mind at ease and been a lifesaver so far and I'm only 2 months in. You Ladies are AWESOME!
      LMAO @ "blind dates" that's hilarious!

      If you aren't digging your "problem" areas.....maybe you can wear your FI's work shirt, a favorite jersey, tie, or lie these things across you in a creative way. It will personalize them and give you some comfort......

      DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! I'm your number one cheerleader! See my post above about personalizing your shoot with FI's clothing.......
      Yay on more booking!! I remember how that felt. Relief!!

      I'm gonna do it and wear one of his shirts. I like the way that looks. I'm also gonna wear my wedding shoes!!! I'm so excited about that...I love those things!

        Marla - for some reason when I tried to pull up your site it didn't come up. It's probably because I'm at work and they block everything but I'm sure it's nice.

        Since we're sharing here's ours Meredith and Theo - Welcome. Hasn't been updated in awhile tho.

        AmyKH - still haven't gotten that video. Do I need to send you my email again?

          I forgot to share with you my 1st thread! I hope I did it right! I got some t-shirts for my flower girl and ring bearer and of course I had to get one for myself. I thought the site was really cool and they always have coupons, so check it out.

                I am doing OOT bags and in it is going to be a postcard that is a picture of our 2 dogs that we got from the same rescue. I am then on the back going to put in lieu of a favor a donation has been made to the Poodle Rescue of Houston. It was the only way I could think to involve the dogs without it being too cheese or dragging them to Mexico. Plus I got these cute little tuxes to put them in to take their pictures. On my Facebook is there 4th of July pic. Yes I am crazy dog lady! HA
                Maggie and Jay GOT married on May 15th 2011 at Azul Sensatori. Best International Wedding EVER!

                  I didn’t do favors persay, from what I kept reading people don’t care about favors really, like trinket like stuff. I did OOT bags and on every place setting in my little birds nest were the 5 light green speckled mint chocolate Jordan almonds in a little organza pouch which is the Italian tradition. So it was something little but not really a favor. The cigars went over bigger than anything so I kinda consider that a favor as well, LOL 

                      Hey Meredith-I'm looking at yours right now..I like that you have a dedication page...might have to add that to my work in progress page. What do you have on your For the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen? Might have to steal that too :)
