Oh and believe me... The Welcome dinner is almost as wonderful as the reception. When we arrived for the Welcome Dinner at Don Manolo's they had segmented off a private area and had it decorated just like a wedding reception. Since we had seen a previous wedding earlier that day, I thought the dinner was the actual reception for that wedding because the decorating was so elaborate!! Nope.. THAT was our WELCOME DINNER.. They even had a head table for it.!!
    Thank you Susan for taking the time to take all those photos and for thinking of us! I really appreciate the info you and Josie have shared! What a beautiful wedding!

      HI!! So I have been reading this daily! It has provided me with SOO much helpful information. I am getting married May 22, 2010. Guess I'm starting to kinda get a little overwhelmed! Have not done much and it's hard b/c we are not really sure how many people will be going. I was wondering if you use the photographer at the Riu do you have to contact them a head of time or do you handle that when they contact you about a month prior?? Just don't want to get stuck w/o one!!! Thanks so much for all the great input and ideas!

          welcome,dont get overwhelmed enjoy it because believe me it goes soooo quickly.glad you find the thread helpful its been a god send for me.if you have any quires just let us know and we will do our best to advise.lisa+josie have been really helpful to us just lately.regarding the photographer yeh you can use the resort photographer who are called calypso photography (i still havent found their website lisa/josie do you?)or you can have your own but you have to pay for them to enter the resort for the day.

          you still have time but the way i got through was make a diary of things you need to do by what date and tick them off as you go along.good luck.

          have you tried on dresses yet?

                    not really no i keep trying to think of stuff i need to do and think of something new.i have bought my perfume today.its also my something blue.i need something borrowed+old but just cant think?i have been looking at hotels/carparks i need to book that.we need to collect fi,s jacket from the alteration place.then in jan get some currency and i think thats it.i need a few more dresses for the evenings but im really struggling because the shops either have the crap sale stuff in or the winter stuff.

                      Shellk- I'm still thinking about it! I have lost 17 lbs and would like to lose 12 more before the wedding. If I can lose about 5 lbs by the end of Jan I am going to do the BD shoot for sure! I can't find a good photog around here though with reasonable prices. I need to continue searching!
