    I emailed her and phoned the next day to follow up. I know it might rack up the bill but I hate waiting for a return email. Hope you get it all figured out.

      Thanks for staying so active on the forum...I will need you in Feb for sure!! Did you have your reception outside? So sorry, I can't remember.
      No problem, I love this forum! DH makes fun of me because I still do wedding "stuff" even after we're married, haha, boys just don't understand

      I had my reception by the lagoon.

        Welcome to the DPA thread!!
        ugh! Jacy can be so frustrating. I don't understand how hard it is just to email me the fri /sat dates that are available in april or may. I feel like I have to specifically ask for a date, and then by the time she emails me back and gets my email, someone else already has taken it!!! Ok, sorry, just had to vent!
        Yeah they have a weird process. You pick a date, then she has to ask the officiant if he's available. That could take a few days

            I just looked at your pics again Ginalynl....so stunning. Another gal on here had her reception right by the gazebo or in the gazebo and I am worried about the wind.....the lagoon looks perfect.

              I bought a CiCi brand calling card to use for my calls to Mexico and the rates are Great! I think on a $20 card I got about 300 minutes to use and they have no connection fees. By far my recommended calling card! You can pick them up at most convenient stores I'm pretty sure!

              Boys don't understand AT ALL! The last couple weeks (yes, since I found this site) I've been on the computer quite frequently and FI has been complaining that I am on so much :) Of course he doesn't realize everything that gets done without him knowing either! But he was very confused as to why I was searching individual Advil packages yesterday until I reminded him of the OOT bags that we (I) am doing. Thankfully he hasn't asked how much is going into them yet!! Hehehehe!



              Oh! And did I mention that I bought my dress this past weekend AND got my invitations all done up and just about ready to print?!? It was a very productive weekend!!!!!

                  I am currently working on my STD's and not sure what to do. I am a bit of a perfectionist and hate trying to cut straight lines even with my cutter. And I have a 7 week old kitten from work that is determined to screw things up by being in my face constantly lol. Or on my keyboard or in my embossing powder. She's a brat but totally adorable. Well back to work.

                    Awww kitten!!! Don't tell my FI about it, he's a total cat lover and my house (and vacuum) can't handle much more than the two cats and dog we have already! He'd be very envious of your barn and it's cats!

                    As for being a perfectionist, I'm right on board with you! The biggest time consumer with my invitations was that when I tried to print them from word (oh, I'm doing the boarding ticket invites!) a couple of the images were awful looking - very pixelated! So after some trickery, I found a website that converts word documents to pdf really easily and the picture quality was WAY better. The downside was that a good portion of the formatting from word to pdf was completely off so I had to do a bunch of editing so that the pdf print version looked the way I wanted it. If you saw the result on my word document you might think I was cross eyed or something!

                    The long weekend couldn't have been at a better time though because I was in my office using my dual monitors to work on all this and I doubt I would have finished nearly as much just using my laptop at home. And overall, it might not have been the most direct route to accomplishing the invites, but I'm pretty happy with them so far. They're off for approval at the moment - a.k.a. FI is looking them over briefly - so I'm hoping no major changes will need to be made :)

                      Hi ladies!! Sorry, I have been missing for so long....work has taken over my life so I haven't been doing near as much wedding planning!!!
                      Question, for those of you who have already been married at DPA, maybe you can help me. We are thinking of adding either extra photo or video to our day. We're going to go with playaweddings which I actually found here. I've been emailing with them as they are capable of both photo and video. Both are incredibly important, but we can only do one or another. I'm wondering as to the quality of the photos and video that is included in the package already. Are either incredibly lacking in any way? We are having a party back in January and will play our wedding video there, so want to make sure it's of good quality. At the same time, of courde photos are always important!! Any advice anyone has is very much appreciated!!!
                      Thank you!
