      Taryn - seems like a small detail I know, but how many LED lights did you use for each vase? I'm about to order and wasn't sure if one is all that's needed for each or more....

       

      Also, things have been crazy with work lately so catching up on this thread - your wedding was BEAUTIFUL!!! You were a stunning bride and the videos were fun :)

      Congrats on being a Mrs and thanks for all your helpful info!

        Hi Jamie!  Thanks for the comliments!!

         

        I used only 1 LED light per vase.  It was plenty of light.  If you want more illumination I would recommend mirrors underneath them.  The reflection helps.  I didn't want to bring those with me but I plan on doing something like this for the AHR next month.

          Thank you thank you!!!

           

          Honestly I can't think of anything.  It all went so smoothly.  I packed everything I needed and was so organized.  I guess the one thing that many other past brides agree with is PACK LESS.  Even though you want to make sure you have an outfit for every possible day, night, afternoon and special occasion - you will most likely pack way too many things and you won't be able to wear them all.  I did end up bringing way too many dresses.  I thought I'd be wearing one every night but I forgot that one night was the bachelorette, one was the welcome dinner and one was the wedding so there were 3 dresses right there that I forgot to take in to account LOL.  On the honeymoon I re-wore some of my long dresses that I wore previously.  Anyways...pack a little less than you think you will need.  Helps with the luggage weight too!!  :)

              Pretty nice.  When it was sunny it was perfect!!  We got a few days of rain - the day before and the day after the wedding.  I got so friggin lucky.  But the days are warm and the nights are breezy but a bit humid.

                Perfect - and thanks for the suggestion! I didn't even think about using the mirrors underneath to help illuminate!

                 

                Enjoy planning your AHR!

                  I am getting married on the Cove side on May 26th, 2012, and I am so excited. I feel like everything has been smooth sailing, but I am getting anxious to start planning the details. Yesenia told me I wont be contacted until 3 months before, which puts me in Feb or early March. I know that should enough time, but makes me so nervous!

                   

                  Congratulations to all of the brides on here, happy planning!!

                    Congrats on your soon-to-be marriage and for picking such a wonderful location!!

                     

                    Do not stress about not being in contact with your wedding coordinator.  You can get about 95% of all the info you could possibly need from this thread.  Plus your wedding coordinator may change throughout the planning process so it really doesn't matter too much.  Just have your list of everything you know you want/dont want and be ready to supply it when the time comes. 

                     

                    Good Luck with your planning!!

                      I do have one question. For your makeup...Did you do your own makeup? Or will the SPA also do your makeup the day of the wedding? Just want to plan accordingly. I am planning on getting my hair/nails done at the SPA and making reservations for myself and bridal party in advance.
