    Katie I cant wait to see any pics of the set up you had/ chair bows- I'm still debating on getting some to take with us.

      KimmyG- I hope you have an AMAZING time!!! Enjoy every minute of it, because it definitely flies by!

      Paige- I actually didn't do OOT bags...instead we made up bags with our favors, which was a photo album, and a welcome letter. We just gave them to people at dinner each night on the day they arrived. I wish we just had the resort do it as guests checked in though, because it was kind of annoying having to hand out bags every single night before dinner. And then people actually had to bring them to dinner too...and of course people would forget them and I would have to track them down the next day, lol!

      We also used the resort photographer, Carlos, from Calypso. The pictures he took came out great, although I'm not exactly thrilled with quality of the album and what he called a "slideshow." I just received it all today...the album was pretty much 50 pictures that we picked out, blown up to an 8 x 10 and then glued to each page of an album. The pictures are completely fine...I just wish it was more of a professional album. He also told us he was giving us a 10 minute slideshow with a couple songs playing...we ended up getting like a one minute "mini" slideshow with a mexican instrumental...one song...and only like 10 pictures in it. I'm going to email him tonight to complain about it. I wouldn't stress out about getting an outside photographer if you don't already have one though...I still love all of the pictures, and we have a cd with all of the pictures and the rights to them.

      As for good bars/clubs to go out to...for my bachelorette party on Wednesday night we ended up getting a bus and going to Coco Bongo. Two of the hotel staff actually came with us, which was nice, and it made us feel safer. It was definitely an awesome place to go, so if you have the chance, I would do it. We didn't do an all nighter there though...we only stayed until around 2am, which was enough for me! I was way too tired to stay out til 6am, lol! :)

      Sorry I haven't posted my review yet...grad school is taking up all of my time right now and stressing me out! I do have a lot of pictures on Facebook though, so feel free to friend me and you can see all of them. I made my own album and I'm also tagged in a bunch. Just do a search for Katie LaBate Barbera and I should come up! If anyone doesn't have Facebook, I will try to post some ASAP...especially the professional ones, which I will do anyway!

              I am so excited! Everything is finally coming together. We got a great rate locked in at RPRM for our guests, we finalized our Save the Dates (they should be in next week) and I am going to try on dresses tonight for the first time!

                    Ladies do any of you know how much a guess pass costs? I have 6 guests will be staying at their time share so will need a day pass but just wasn't sure how much it was I think it was $80 not sure.

                    Also the guests offered to pay it themselves but i feel bad making them pay, if you were in my place would you have paid for the day passes or let the guests pay? Not sure what the right thing will be.
