    Frenchie and Chloe, thanks for all your tips!
    I don't want the private reception but I do want to have a first dance. Maybe I'll just do it to the live music?
    Did anyone see the Caribbean Trio play? I thought about having them during the ceremony. Would the cocktail hour be too quiet without live music?
    Is the Mariachi cheesy? I think I'd like it but I'm afraid it might seem a bit cheesy??

    Everything I've ordered has been received, so now I'm just putting things together (hangover kits, keycard holders, etc). Lots of fun things left to do! A bit concerned about how I'm getting the bulky mugs and everything down to RPRM, ahh!

    Time goes by so fast, don't let anyone tell you otherwise hehe

A year and a half ago when my sister was doing destination wedding, i had no clue on how she was on this site soo much... well i am officially addicted, i have been out drinking all night, but need to find out what is going on here when i get home :)
      So I just want to thank you all so much! I love seeing all the pictures and hearing everyones plans and ideas!

            Chloe- Welcome back and CONGRATULATIONS! I can't wait to look at all of your pictures (had a hard time opening them at work, but definitely going to look when I get home)! By the sounds of it, all of them look great! Thank you for your all of your feedback on everything too!

            Frenchie- Thank you so much for all of your tips! I was considering getting the harpist for my ceremony, but wasn't sure, so you definitely helped confirm that I should do it!

            KimmyG- I've actually been thinking about the same thing for the cocktail hour...I wasn't planning on having any type of live music since we're planning on getting the harpist for the ceremony and having a private reception with DJ. I just hope that it's not TOO quiet without anything.

            Virginia- Yes, can you please forward that email to me? I still haven't straightened things out with Ael...and I'm leaving on Saturday, so I guess I will just have to see what happens during our meeting with her next Tuesday. So frustrating!!!

SO cool that you got to see all of those weddings too! Even though you chose a diff resort, I'm sure it made you more excited.

              Chloe- awesome tip about the cocktail hour being free AFTER the mariachis are mentioned... I need to totally play that one up since we are getting them anyway I loved all of it in your pics- looked like fun! OH and I just told FI about the cigar idea you had for it- he's all over that.

              Samira-I'm not wearing a veil, and not sure if you can tell by my dress in my siggy, it's kind of between an aline and mermaid too. I'm just wearing a flower in my hair. Can't wait to see pics of your dress!

              Frenchie - Thanks for all the info!

              Ladytrunk - I had decided against the bows too, but after the link which Chloe sent me its so cheap to get the bows so now I have decided to get them. I heard before the hotel puts them on free or may charge a flat fee of $20. so now I am going with it.

              Is anyone doing a wlecome oot bag? if yes where did you buy the bags from?

                    Question for all the brides...how are all your guests booking rooms?? Did you put a deposit down? Or are you just letting your friends book their flight and rooms on their own? How did you book your room? Just trying to hammer out the begining details!
                    Thanks, jenna

                      Chloe- OMG, just got to look at your pictues! SO GORGEOUS!!! I absolutely LOVE your dress! And yes, please tell us who your photographer was!

                      Jenna- Most of my guests actually booked through the group TA that we used. Some of them also ended up booking on their own through other TA's or even online.
