          sammysgirl - we didn't have chair covers at all, I like the just white and because we had 2 different colors for the wedding party it would be too much I think. The chair covers came with the Caprice wedding package that we got.

          ShellK - Your meeting should NOT be the day of your wedding, I would let the wedding coordinator know this. Our meeting was Tuesday and we were married Thursday.

            Ah!! I'm supposed to get automatic email notifications if someone posts in this thread...so i thought no one had been chatting. sorry for my delay but here are my answers!

            Lisa- I didnt get all my shower thank-you's out either, and my shower was over a month before my wedding, so don't feel bad! I'd send a combo...just make it extra nice!

            I know this wasnt to me, but i took my chairbows.... i got them for .99 and at riu they were $4. The white is included.

            Josie- where are your BM dresses from, and their shoes?? I really love them! Did you take the matching chair bows your self?
            I got my BM dresses at JC Penny for $25 dollars a piece!!!!!!!! They were amazing!! It was seasonal though so I don't think they have those exact ones anymore....but I'd definitely check the department stores. Especially during prom/homecoming and the other high school dance events. All of my bm's were tiny...so i was able to get these from the juniors department!

            The girls got their own shoes... i just told them "gold"...so you can probably tell from the pics that the shoes did not all match!

            Also yes, i brought the chair bows down, and still have them if you want. I have about 55 orange ones. They were small and easy to pack!

            Joise - your wedding looked amazing!! did you bring the chair bows and fans yourself or was it through RIU

            i was wondering what you girls are doing / did in terms of the photographer. Did you just use the one they recommended or did you bring your own. I was kind of hoping to bring in an outside photographer and was told it would be 100$ for a day pass for them.. however i never really realized how much wedding photographers are.... what do you guys think is a reasonable budget

            also about the reception i remember that some of you girls are having a private reception with a dj. i'm worried that my guest count wont be enough for a private reception and i dont want to pay extra if i just have 25 people. but then again i dont want to miss out on the first dance and father daughter dance.... any ideas?

            Lynn
            Yes, I brought my own chair bows (not the white covers though, those are provided) :) I also brought the fans down which i thought was a beautiful touch... everyone LOVED them!

            My photographer was flown in and I DID NOT pay any $100/day fee. I simply told the resort that my guests were photographers and would be taking my pictures, and they never charged me! I would go that route if you're planning to fly someone down. I won a BDW contest so I just had to pay for flight and hotel, I had 2 photographers and it ended up being around $1400 total which I think was very reasonable! But depending on what you want, you can spend up to 5 or 6K. I didn't want to go over 2, but that is just me personally!

            In terms of the private reception. They will work with you. Even if you have a small guest count I'm sure they'd still do a private reception. The DJ was one of the best parts of my entire night and I couldnt imagine my wedding without him....... he was a BLAST!!!!!!!! So don't sacrifice :)

            [QUOTE=shellk;1095180]josie,thanks for the videos you have got me thinking again do i book it or not.you wicked wife you.did you use the spa for makeup?
            QUOTE]

            I'm sorry I forgot to answer this earlier! Yes I did the make up and I really liked it! But then again, I suck at putting on make-up so I probably would have been happy with just about anything. They let you pick your eye-shadow shade so don't worry about it being too drastic!! I think you will be very happy if you do it. It was a big relief to me and my make-up lasted the entire day and even withstood cake being smashed ALL OVER my face!!
