Thank you everyone for the wonderful compliments. Sorry for the delay in thanking everyone. :)

Janna the resort did my hair but I did my makeup :)

Make sure if you do have the resort do your hair give them plenty of time. I was freaking cuz I had them do my nails and toes. And the resort scheduled me at 10:30 Am well it took her a while to do my nails ( I just had them painted) then it was 12:00 PM and she still didn't start on my hair yet. So allow a lot of time :) She finished at 1:00 but it was too close for me lol.

Hey Girls


Wow I have so much to catch up on! Mylene we may be at the resort at the same time! Im arriving on the 19!


Ginalyn and those who already had their big day -- did you have to pay extra to have the beach reception? I want my reception either on the beach or in the gazebo but not sure if I have to pay for it.


Ahh It's getting soo close, less than 3 months away!

Hi rain fall, from what I heard, you can choose the gazebo or beach for the reception and your guests just have to pay for their menu, you can choose a 18, 20 or 22 $ menu for everyone. Also from what I heard...You still have to pay this amount for a restaurant reception anyways!

I will probably choose the gazebo, more special and also more private.


I also will also bring my ipod with music and hope they can connect it to the gazebo speakers. I also heard (lol) that they do that for free. I am not cheap but I want to spend my money on all my 2 weeks vacation and not just that day!


I will be there when you get there, the family leaves before but we stay until the 23rd! We could meet and I could answer your questions! Time goes by so fast now, I can't wait!

I did not pay extra to have the beach reception. I had the Ultimate Package (but I don't know if that makes a difference). My reception was on the beach by the lagoon (more private). The other girl who had a wedding on the same day had her reception on the beach by the gazebo (where the volleyball court is). Since my reception was in a more private area, we barely noticed there was another reception going on around the same time.

ouf, I still don t know about the reception, I want it to be private and special, so outside. I am leaning towards the gazebo because we could use the speakers but I think I would rather be by the lagoon. I just find its ridiculous to pay by the hour for the sound system. I have my own music (ipod and dock) . We are the only wedding on the 15th so I guess we will take a look and choose there! Just want to make the best choice!

Mylene... if you already have an ipod and docking station, why aren't you just using that by the lagoon for your music? I may have missed if you mentioned before about your reasons. Or if you think your docking station won't be loud enough then maybe look into bringing down another set of speakers that does give you better sound? I agree that paying the higher fees for something so simple doesn't seem right, but if you're buying and bringing your own speakers then at least you know they're something you can keep using once you get home again!

I agree with you echo, I was thinking the same thing and yes I am afraid the speakers wont be loud enough, especially by the ocean with the wind and waves. Something we can check when we get there. We are a small group so if it works well, I agree with you that I should go with the lagoon, it seems like a very intimate and romantic spot! What did you choose?

I just want to get something booked and in stone!!!!!!!

As for my dress, I had earlier thought that I might wait until September to even start looking but then realized that if I had a six month window I wouldn' thave much time. I think I'd heard about the bridal fair in september but no details really. I'll keep shopping in the meantime and if I haven't completely fallen in love with one by then, I'll for sure check it out! Have you heard about any trunk sales coming up at all? I wasn't sure if those are only posted by individual locations... more homework I guess!
Hi Ladies,

I'm leaving for my wedding 1 week from today and am getting pretty stressed abut the last minute stuff. However, when I ordered my dress they said up to 6 months too, but it was ready in about 3-4. I think like everything else in life they need to cover their butts. Every store is different though and I wouldn't wait too long as you'll also need to make appts for alterations etc. I picked mine up last week and....it's still perfect!!!!. Just make sure you don't continue trying on dresses after you buy yours....that way no regrets. Hope it all goes well for you (and me too!) I haven't been on much cuz I'm crazy busy, but will try and post a review when I get back!

So sorry for the delay in answering your decoration question.

I love the hanging orchids as well but I'm not sure where I'd hang them. I'm afraid they might blow in our faces during the ceremony. I was thinking fishing weights... but I don't think they are heavy enough for the gazebo maybe around the reception site.

so I'm thinking these beads

Large Teardrop Beaded Curtain ~ Clear

I want to drape a few stands like curtain on either side of the gazebo. I think if they are tied back at least they won't hit us in the face.


I also wanted to soften the gazebo. My bridesmaid suggested we drape organza down each leg of the gazebo all attached to the ceiling of the gazebo.

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
