However...what my point is, sorry for babbling, is that if a resort is going to charge, why not just buy a ipod docking device? You would then at least have something tangible at the end of the day. I might just do this myself. Def saves on a DJ...just make play lists or have it set to shuffle and your set! :)
    Hi All,

    I have been off for awhile and super busy with a new job, wedding planning, car accidents (yes plural) and life in general. But my wedding is now 8 weeks away and I'm trying not to FREAK out during all this last minute stuff. I bought an IPOD and a Harmon Kardon docking system that pounds out the tunes. I was debating on the Bose too and this one has way more wattage so that's why I got it. I'm sure either one is going to be fine because they're quality systems. The savings is huge when you think about it, so go for the best. The only downfall is that my system is a bit heavy and bulky so hubby will be bringing it as his carry-on item and I will have THE DRESS!

    Speaking of the dress, I go for my first fitting in about a week and then have my bridal shower a couple of weeks after that. I still feel really unprepared though. I am almost finished with the OOT bags and just need to assemble them, and I finally have the wedding party coming with clothes on. Up until a few weeks ago they were all naked. i do feel a little better now that final payments have been made and I have 20 people confirmed.

    I'm so happy for you Jamie. Congrats. I'm glad everything went well for you. I was wondering if the head table is round or rectangle. Jacy hasn't responded yet so maybe you can help me out by letting me know. Thanks, and thanks to everyone on this site that has helped me out with their insight and reviews. You are awesome!

      Anyways, she found this link that gives some really nice 360 views of the resort and I thought some of you might like it for yourselves or if you have a wedding website on the go (like me!).

        Hi all-
        Went on Trip Advisor and typed in Dream PA and it was the newest post. I think it mentions "wedding" in the title of the post.

              Hey Meghan,

              Yes it is the dress at S2...I was surprised when I called yest to find out that the fitting for measurements must be done at Sonias, and they do not take apts!? Weird...they rec apts to select and try on dresses...but to actually want to order one from them they dont take apts. Hmmm??

              As for the quotes...I have the ones that I mentioned to you and have since (couple days ago) recieved quotes for the Azul resorts. I'm waiting to find out how there promotions will/ if any benefit us to have it with them? This is seriously taking longer than I would like...but I'm trying to stay positive and think it will only benefit me to not rush into it. Sounds like you have done some good OOT bag shopping...I posted on the other thread.

              Hope your all having a great week! :)

                Well it is a little bit odd that you'd have to get your measurements done at Sonia's but when I was there, part of the store was an alterations room so I imagine that it's just easier for them to coordinate, plus then the person doing the measurements is also doing the alterations for you? And they prob. don't do appts. because a fitting takes so much less time than trying on a bunch of dresses! It's just a matter of getting all your info written down.
                Good for you trying to stay positive and patient selecting your resort. It is a big decision and in the end you want to do what works best for you all around, not just in one aspect. Kepp at it :)

                  I couldn't book one night through the website either, I've never even called them i've only gone through my TA. My wedding is on a Friday too. It actually came to to 420 USD fo 2 people in a garden view room for one night.

                    Hahaha, maybe I should just get your TA to book an extra room for me and I'll take care of the price! LOL! How did you find this TA if they're booked out of Florida.
