So what are ya'll doing for your something borrowed?
    Hhhhhhhmmmmmmmm... something borrowed.... I suppose there's the traditional/typical stuff... jewelry (earrings, bracelet, ring, etc), a viel, hair accessories, maybe a clutch... sorry, my creative juices aren't flowing this morning.

    Iberostar09 -- Nice suggestion.

      Here are a few more items you can borrow...
      toasting flutes (if not personalized), silverware to cut the cake, a book from the library to read a poem/scripture from or if your mom/sister/aunt still has their garter

        Well since we are on subject- I can't come up with anything old. Using my FI moms earrings for borrowed. No old jewelry pieces in family.

        Also, I have had no response from WC since gabriella left. E mailed over 2 wks ago

          That sucks Gail! I wish I could say I'm surprised but Reyna doesn't seem like she's as "on the ball" as Gabriela was. I mean she's nice enough, but still...if it makes you feel any better, I still don't have my marriage certificate with apostille yet.

I can't wait to read your review! Also, if you have bars you recommend to meet at I would greatly appreciate the info!
            I really am working on a review, but being the idiot that I am, I decided to get married, move to a new town and start a new job all in the same month, so it's been really busy for me the last few days...

            The Vitrales room was perfect. It gave us privacy, we did speaches, cut the cake there etc. The Ipod connections were all there, we actually plugged into a laptop and used itunes, but all the connections were there. They had a speaker and a microphone...which had great sound. It just really felt like a real reception as opposed to just hanging out in one of the bars. We had the room from 8 - 10:30 and then we all headed over to the disco.

            I'm hoping to get my review out by the end of the week.

              Sorry - missed this part. We usually met in the lobby bar at the Lindo. There's also an open area with seating just across from the lobby bar that we would sit at as well. But that was the general meeting point.

                Did you have a sand ceremony? Did you have to write anything for the ceremony or bring your own music? I'm doing the Civil Ceremony. I only have about 15 people coming down so far and don't expect anymore than about 25. Just trying to keep it simple as possible.

                Thanks,
                Noel

                  Noelynn - We did not have a sand ceremony but I am sure that if you wanted to, they would certainly accommodate for it after the judge is done performing the civil ceremony. I didn't bring my own music but Gabriela told me that I was more than welcome to bring my own. Hope this helps!

                    Wow you sure are busy! That is a lot of new things to happen all at once!

                    Thanks for that info. I am thinking now we might rent it out...we are having an AHR, but it would be nice to hang out and have a private room for everyone to chill and relax and talk.

                    The Lobby Bar...good to know! Thanks again!

                      My Fi is going down next week for work- an hr away from resort. They have him on tight schedule. I scheduled with gabriella for him to meet for about hr on 29th. She emailed before she left to send reminder to Reyne- well I did but no response. Hope she is available when he shows- if anyone needs him to check out anything in person let me know. Again, he don't have much time but he said to make him a list. Speak now or forever hold your peace
