Tho' I'm generally quite comfortable in heels I am one of those people who always manages to get my heel caught in boardwalks etc. and am curious if I should avoid the small kitten heel altogether. (Already having visions of tripping down the aisle - not a comforting mental image).
    I had the wooden runner with aqua coloured fabric on top. I wore sandals, and had no problem walking. I think little heels would be fine.

    I do have a couple of questions for you Meghan! I was looking at your photos on FB. Thye are just amazing.

    I noticed you had some small children attend. I will have 3 toddlers all between 1 and 2, one being my own little guy. I wanted to see if you or your guests used the oniste babysitting and if so, what your experience was. Anyone you really liked or could recommend?

    Also, how were the latterns hung up at the Zvaz plaza? I don't want to do latterns but was thinking of hanging little candle holders. Maybe something lke these:
    I know you B2B's don't want to stray from wedding talk but if you don't mind indulging me, what do you all do for work?

    I know what Amanda does but that's about it!
    I'm an elementary school teacher, but I'm not permanent yet, so I'm usually doing maternity covers, etc... I've been able to have my own class for the past 2 years, but I need to reapply for jobs each summer....which sucks and is really stressful.

      That was going to be next post. So after a crazy 2 weeks and investigating close to 15-20 hotels and analyzing their wedding menu/packages, reviews, etc. I decided....to stay at Azul Beach!

      My fiance spoke at length for 3 days with Fabio who is FABOLOUS. Totally honest...no BS and got the info we needed. We know that there is a chance there may be some construction going on but no bulldozers etc. We hope its all finished but there is a chance it won't be. He said ti will be the interior of the rooms. We are just keeping our fingers crossed for the best. We are also going to most likely plan ANOTHER trip there before the wedding to check out the progress.

      So as of today 39 rooms booked and TA is working on getting 2 more if possible. Hooray...now I'm off to party plan - my sister is due in 7 weeks and I am planning her shower with my mom (poor mom has lots of showers/parties to plan this year)

        Awesome jobs ladies! Glad you love your jobs, that's always nice :)

        Amy - 6am - 5pm or 6pm, 7am would be soooo nice. No gym, no long lunch, no errands no nothing. Just me and my over time. I take a 30 minute lunch and that's it... aside from BDW of course :)

        Our company gave us unlimited over time for the month of July and are pushing us to use it... I'm in sales so there's no lack of things to do ever and the more you work, the more sales so they like to crack that whip!

        Glad to hear your sticking with AB!!!

          YAY! So happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wendy spoke to Fabio a lot too and she thought he was amazing. So glad you don't have to go and change everything now. Even once you get there they will help you do anything you ask to do and be persistent!

            Wow you are so motivated!! I have never had a job where I make an hourly salary but I am still not sure I'd work all that overtime. Does your husband get it when he is traveling? My old job I used to travel a lot and I think my salary on an hourly basis was like cut in half all the extra time I spent in hotels and airports.

                  I'm so glad you've made a decision that you're happy with. And so glad to hear that you've got Fabio involved and taking care of you and being up front about it. Azul Beach sounds amazing and it would be a shame to lose out on all the work you've already done too.

                  Wow! sounds like you work worse hours than ME! Haha. Actually, I can't really complain. As a lawyer I have it pretty darn good. I work for a small firm JUST outside of the city (of Vancouver) and we have REALLY reasonable hours by industry standard. I basically only work 8-6/6.30 (unless I have a trial or something - sometimes things get hairy).

                  Unlike others, I do not LOVE my job. But I don't hate it either.

                    Good for you girl!! I so hope that the construction is minimal, and that Azul Beach made it worth your while to stay there. They didn't really do much for me, so I pulled up roots and moved over to Barcelo Maya Palace. Maybe FI and I will be able to visit Azul Beach someday :)



                    As to the job sitch: I'm a supervisor in the Card/Wire services department at a Credit Union. Not a big fan of my job right now, what with all the financial industry FUN that's going on right now (pretty stressful) but it pays the bills.

                    My fiance is a commercial electrician...he just got turned out as a journeyman last week, and I am so proud of him!!

                      Thank you to everyone for "disinviting" advice...pretty sure I'm just going to let it ride...and the next holiday or family get together, I will casually mention that we have scaled our wedding way down to be immediate and wedding party only :) Not sure how FI will want to handle his side....but he sees his family less than I see mine...so..hopefully...that should be ok too

                      Hopefully, we will do an AHR later on that summer (2012)..we have an AMAZING backyard and could do an open house/all day event so it's not too overwhelming...and basically just have to get a big tent and rent some table and chairs....but...that can all be decied later...
