    veronica and i really started making decisions the week before the wedding. she would email me a couple of times a day to ask me questions. i did not have bridemaids so i used the flowers for the reception table. i used the other photographer also, even though i had my own. i figured it couldnt hurt to have more pictures. also, the price seems to change when you get there. when i got there she told me a dj would only be 250 dollars. also she had quoted me a price for speakers ahead of time which was 200 dollars. i told her no. then when we got there it was only 75 dollars for the speakers.

      I also didn't know that they do two wedding per day. So if you want any specific locations reserved you have to tell her in advance, otherwise she said you'll choose from what's available.
      The upgrade for the orchid bouquet according to her will be $100-150. I hope that doesn't change :))
      Also, those flower arrangements on the gazebo are $100 each. The arrangements that they have are so old fashioned.

      Also, Lindsey, she only charged you $75 for the speakers? Is it speakers only or the whole sound system? I was told to book through PSAV, and the sound system without the DJ came up to $476.30.

      Katusha25, my wedding is on April 23. When do you arrive for your wedding? You will probably have a chance to see my wedding :)

        Lindsey, Egle, or Katusha,

        Did you or are you bringing a lot of wedding stuff on the plane with you like decorations, OOT bags, favors, etc. Or having them shipped? Any word of advice on that?

          we only used the speakers. the ipod plugged into the speakers.

          i brought 3 suitcases as well as 2 carry ons. we had t-shirts made for our oot bags so they took up alot of space, as well as all of the decorations.

            I will bring everything with me. If it doesn't fit then I will put it in my family members' luggage :))

            Lindsey, what did you use the speakers for? Just for ceremony or reception too? I need them for reception so i don't know if I need the whole sound system... if you only used speakers

              I am bringing some light decoration stuff with me, like chair ribbons, rose petals, etc.
              But things like candles we are shipping to the resort right now. It shouldn't take more than a week to get there but I've heard of many brides shiipping decor to the resort ahead of time. I think it's risky to pack fragile things in check-in bags and too heavy to carry on with you...

                    Katusha, have you finalized all the details with Veronica? How many people you having? Where are you going to have your reception?
