    HAha thanks Janna! I've totally list my brain lately and can't remember what conversations I've had with who, or even whether they were in person or online! LOL! But at least I totally did remember :)

    I really appreciate the insider info about the uneven ground at the lagoon - that will totally impact our decision if it's just too difficult for his family to maneuver.

    Hey here's a question for you - I've got strings of mini lights that I wanted to put up above our reception area somehow. Between the lagoon, poolside etc... does one had an advantage over the other for that sort of idea?

      I had to make a second post to say THANK YOU for the great review Janna! OMG I cannot wait to see your pictures!!!!!!!!

      I've been worried about a few things lately and you really helped me get some of it in perspective. Like a lot of other brides on here, I'm a little bit of a control freak (okay a LOT about everything!) and I've been doing okay so far until now :)

      As for getting your pictures on here, photobucket probably is the best option BUT if you didn't know already - I'm pretty sure you can upload straight from an email account or website so that might save you some time (and additional headaches!!) from having to go through and upload all of your pics all over again. I can't access photobucket from my work computer (crap, damn, stink!) so if you need more help I can check it at home tonight. It was pretty straightforward though if I remember correctly.

      Thanks again SO MUCH! Down to 19 days until departure for me.... I'm getting SO EXCITED!!!! EEEK!

        You're very welcome!!! I am the same....I was (ok am!!) all about control and I think our need for it gets heightened when aren't physically able to see our destination, or talk to Jacy when ever we want. If I was being honest, when the past DPA brides said "don't worry, it will all make sense and work out when you get there," I didn't buy that or trust it!!! But its true...it will be perfect, and it all works out the way you want. 19 days.....yay!!!!

          Lagoon would be hard to do I think....and the pool already has some fabulous lighting b/c its by Oceana. I think it would be easier there...

              Thanks Janna! I didn't see your post last night about uploading from an email account so I'll get on it tonight if you don't have any other help before that :)

              I've been trying to stay really calm about the things that I haven't gotten done yet because FI really gets frustrated when he sees me upset about stuff. So last night I said that even though he was in a good, happy mood I was still suspicious that something was wrong. And I was right! He's worried that I'm getting too panicked over little details which was what we wanted to avoid by having a DW in the first place. He knows I can get to the point of practically being sick with anxiety so he's promised now to help more so that I don't feel so stressed! What a guy!!

                  sorry, we booked everything as a package deal straight through a couple of airlines here, and not through a TA.

                    Janna, thank you so much for the review! It makes me even more excited!!!!

                    As far as a TA, we used a local TA. I started working with DestinationWeddings.com however when our rep. tried steering us away from DPA we dropped them and went to a local TA. I was nice to have our guests deal with someone directly instead of me having to be the go between. It's worked out great.

                      I started using destinationweddings.com myself and got my $ back after the lady assigned to me wouldn't get back to me when she said she would. Anyway, I am using Elite Travel Group now and so far so good. They specialize in destination weddings and they also help me out with the planning at no additional cost.

                      Great pic by the way!
