Thank you!! We are expecting 30-40 people there - not sure where the numbers will end up but we'll see!! 

 

 I originally booked the Amethyst Rose Collection but have since change as a result of changing our colors!  We are now going with the Diamond Collection which I am realizing is what most brides do since it's the easiest to put everything together! :)

My planning is also going great.  We sent out magnet STD's from magnetstreet.com and they turned out great.  Currently I am working on our DIY passport invites.  I feel like those are the best invites to get the most information out.  Our colors are orange and fuchsia.  My biggest decision now is whether or not to do real touch flowers or real ones.  I am just so scared of the uncertainty of picking out the bouquets when we get there.  I feel like flowers are such a pivotal part of the decor and I know what I want.  These are the RT bouquets I am looking at:

Those real flower ones look amazing. I am doing real flowers for me because they come in our package, but bring real touch flowers for my centerpieces. They are just so expensive at the hotel. The bridesmaid ones look very nice from what I have seen but are pricey too.

 

One past bride said she broke her bouquet appart between three girls. Nam.

 

You can see she slide show on the Del Sol Wiki, Look under Aventura Cove and Spa, Natalie and Justin. Her flowers look steller! Not to mention some KILLER photos from Del Sol the photo GODS

I am definitley going to do real touch flowers.  I love the idea of bringing home my tropical bouquet and having it in a vase next to a picture of us on our wedding day and our sand ceremony.  I'll probably take the real bouquet I get down there and split it up....or just make it a centerpiece/decoration.

Skadow:  Seems like you are all set!!!  I'll prob get fidgety too once I have everything pretty much done!  I contacted JSAV as well for audio equipment, just nervous about not having an actual DJ (although from what I'm reading are EXTREMELY pricey in MX!!)... because if you just book the audio equipment the provide, how do they do the actual announcements?  You know?

 

I actually asked my TA about the double resort dollars today! I didn't think of doing that! Silly us were just thinking about staying on the Cove Side the entire time!   huh.gif 

 

I reached out to Fernando for pricing and have not heard back from him yet - I also reached out to Norma Zurama and heard back from her, but would like to be able to compare with Fernando's prices!  Can you share that info with me? :)

 

Also for the wedding ceremony, which musician did you pick?  I'm leaning towards harpist I think :)

Haha that's so funny!! I'm still debating to be honest!! I think Thomas likes the orange combo better than the raspberry but I don't know!  Was thinking of purchasing dark teal linens and accenting with orange/peachy flowers.. what are your ideas?

Well I got 400 days to go from today so I have plenty of time.

 

I have a lot of stuff figured out but I can't really do anything until it gets closer.  I did reserve my photographer (La Luna) ...so excited.  I have lots of ideas for the OOT bags, where I am going to buy my chair sashes, the style of centerpieces I want and so much more but I really need to wait until it gets closer so I have a better idea of how many people are coming.  I plan on going dress shopping starting next month.  Have a specific style I want so I hope it ends up looking good on me.  I've been working on my boarding pass STDs that will be sent out next month and already decided to do the passport invites.  So I have lots of stuff figured out but now its just a waiting game for me.  You're lucky yours is so close!! =)

 

I did find my shoes....fell in love with them.  These will be the first item I buy for the wedding haha!!!

shoes4.JPG

 

Those shoes are hotttttt girl wink.gif  Where did you find them?   I'll be starting wedding dress shopping next week!!! Totally freaking out about that! haha.. :)  Where are you ordering the chair sashes from and are you going to be making your own centerpieces? I definitely will be! :)

I couldn't agree with you more about the bouquets! I'm totally leaning towards Real Touch Flowers as well! I think i'd just feel a lot more secure knowing exactly what I'm going to be carrying in vs. picking a few days before!! I'm really picky about stuff like that and am nervous that I won't like what the resort offers or something (although I have seen PDFs) but still! :)

 

That arrangement is beautiful!  What website is that from?

Honestly, I've seen people do teal, orange and pink all together!  I'm having aqua/teal'ish dresses with orange, white and maybe a splash of another color for my flowers.  I think it's nice to throw a few splashes of color into the mix.  I was so safe in the beginning with my thought on colors, and just picked orange and yellow (because I originally went with the Amber Collection)..and I've branched out so much!  Here is an example of how my friend joined all of those colors..maybe it will inspire you?  I actually picked/changed my colors to what they are now and just saw her pictures and realized I made a great decision!

 

(I cropped her bridesmaid's face out because I stole her pic off facebook haha)

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
