    Hello ladies.. we just got back this morning and it was AMAZING... all those with any worries, let it go! It was like all the other ladies in the past few months have written to a tee... Landy/Anabel & Natalia are so all over the details that you really don't have to sweat the small stuff!!
    I will post pics and review in the next few days (we used the resort photog and he was awesome.. we had no trouble choosing 50 pics!!)

    ps - on the topic of the batteries for the ipod station in the rooms... its NOT the D size batteries ( I can't remember who it was that spoke to the front desk about this..) I checked 6 rooms.. all of them take triple A batteries.. but the big bummer... ALL six that I checked were wired directly into the wall - there was no taking them anywhere! We ended up bringing speakers and it was perfect (just make sure you charge the ipod fully the day before and you'll be good to go!)

          Congratulations Tracy! The two pictures that I can see are beautiful and I can't wait to see more. Your positive post makes me feel even more comfortable with the thought of how great our wedding will be in a few short months. I'm looking forward to reading you review.

          Welcome home!

            Hi ladies, quick question about the spa. My ceremony is at 4:00 and I emailed Jennifer at the spa to schedule my hair appointment for 11:00 a.m. She wrote back and said she thinks that is too early. I was wondering what time everyone has had or is having their hair done in comparison with ceremony times.

            Can anyone offer advice on this? Thanks!!

              I wouldn't let anyone try to dictate your day for you! It all depends on what you want to do in between. My ceremony was at 3pm and I had my hair done at I think 9 (maybe 10, I'd have to check my review to be sure). I wanted lots of time for everyone's hair, and to do my own makeup, to get dressed, and most importantly take pictures! I had read some other people's stories about being so so rushed before the ceremony and I didn't want that to be me. And since we were limited in time after the ceremony for pictures, we wanted to get a lot of pictures (the ones that didn't involve my husband and I seeing eachother) out of the way before hand.

              So I would say it depends on if you are having an outside photographer come earlier for pics, or if you are using the resort photographer who will only show up approx half an hour before.

                Thank you for the advice I really appreciate it. I haven't been on this site a lot lately because I've been so busy with work the past few months and now I'm scrambling to get all of my wedding stuff done.

                We are using the resort photographer but it is important to me not to feel rushed, but I also don't want to be sitting around bored and waiting. Jennifer at the spa said my hair will only take 35 minutes, but I know my hair will take longer than that.

                Thanks for your help! I would love to hear about everyone's timelines of their wedding day, trying to get ideas.

                  My wedding was at 4pm and we started getting ready (hair & make-up) at 1pm...we were a bit rushed at the end so wished we'd started at noon. I think 11am would work out great and give you plenty of downtime so you're not rushing from one task to the next.

                  PS - SBlake, your pics are great! And congrats Tracy!!!

                      well I think your time sounds reasonable. I think it's safest to assume your hair will take an hour, based on my experience and that of other brides.

                      Try to get the resort photographer to come to your room an hour before the wedding to take as many pictures as possible.

                      You can see my full wedding timeline in my review (which allowed TONS of time for photos at my photographer's insistence. If I were to redo it I probably would have started only 1 hour later and we still would have had plenty for all the photos we got).
