    I'm know you have it now but just in case, I posted her new address in post 169. She's quite lovely...tell her I say hi!

      I had real flower. Lusia has some extras in the spa so didn't have to pay for them. Mine was a pink lily.

        I'd have to agree with the comments about a real flower wilting. Plus if it's a little windy like it sounds to be at the gazebo, a silk flower would definitely hold up better than a real one.

        And I have to point out that as of today my ticker is now counting in DAYS and that has me very excited!!! It's just 26 days until we leave now and I'm trying to figure out the things that I'm missing on my to-do list! I feel like I should have a bunch but for whatever reason, I just don't - it's unnerving!
        Hi gals-
        I had a real flower (a lily) and it stood up against the wind and the night just fine. I did snip the pollen bunches out so it wouldn't stain my dress though. I didn't pay for it and just took the chance there were extra flowers around...

          Ginalyn you're right. The "lagoon" is the natural pool. This is where I wanted my reception at 1st however, when we were there, the smell of the algae under Barracuda bar was off-putting.

          Poolside is by the Adult Pool where we were scheduled to have our reception. Its by Oceana, very lovely. After speaking to Dee, (Dee changed her original location after talking to me about where mine was!!) it was quite cold there so I had my above Portofino. It was excellent. We had 1 long table, dimmed lighting, the floating candles with calla lilies and it was private. A good choice. Thanks agin Dee for the tip!

            Bridej9 and Meghan.... it's so exciting that you are counting down in days now! Meghan it's awesome that your to-do list isn't very long. I literally can barely wait to hear your reviews!

            As for me, my bridal shower and bachelorette party is this Saturday. I can't believe it's here already :).

              Thank you everyone for the advice on the flowers for the hair.

              We leave in 19 days! I tried on my dress last night, with the last alterations complete...it fit perfect! Next week I have to go pick up my ring. With all of that done all I have left to do is pack!!!!

                Well I'm glad that my to-do list sounds shorter coming out than it does in my head! I honestly don't feel that way at all. The good news is that I'm working on the assembly of my OOT bags (haha I'm classy and putting them all in ziplock bags until we're ready to hand them out in the real bags - I need to know all the items are contained and won't fall out in the process!!), and am 80% finished my DIY favours for our guests. I think all I have to finish printing out are some tags for the bags so I know who gets what - don't think the grandparents would enjoy a few of the contents we included for our friends :)

                Those were pretty much the last couple things to get done at home before packing. I also have to pick up my ring this weekend and go in for my second dress fitting. I'd really love to be able to have all the bits and pieces done this weekend so I can focus on getting all the pieces organized!!!

                  Oh thank you for the heads up about the lagoon! What is it like above Portofino? Is it outdoors? Like a roof top deck? I really want to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and have it outside.

                    Hi Janine-
                    Jacy and her team made it so lovely up there. I too wanted it outside, I totally understand what you mean and what you're after. The wind was cool when I went in March so having it indoors took away the worry that my guests and the food would be cold. There is a small outside deck where we mingled, and folks could go in and out if they wanted to. We also had our champagne cocktail hr above Portofino too. There were flowers everywhere, the lighting was nice, and the food was hot. Let me know how I can help!

                      Has anyone used Victor Hererra for their wedding photographer? What has been the general protocol for a deposit when booking an outside photographer? Sending money to someone's bank account in Mexico gets me a little anxious!
