    Adrianne - are you just worried about losing a diamond or something from your engagement ring while snorkeling? Or do you have gloves that fit really tight? I can totally understand that you wouldn't want to just leave it in the room safe for sure. What about passing it off to a friend or family member who will be staying at the resort while you're away for the day? That way you know exactly where it is and might not have to worry as much?!?!
    CONGRATS Megan.....I can't wait to hear all about it!!!

        I wore my engagement ring the whole week I was there. It didn't budge at all.

          Thanks for all the engagement ring input. I'm still undecided. I'm glad to hear the hotel safe information.

          Wow Meghan only 1 more day! I hope it's the best day ever!

            Hello ladies!!!! So, I am still trying to decide between DT and DPA....after reading this entire post I'm pretty convinced I will be choosing DPA!!!! The only thing is I'm still waiting on an answer from my first email to the resort...and I don't know if they have my date available....do any of you have the wc direct email? I'm so excited about having my wedding there!

              Welcome to the DPA thread m&d! Unfortunately I don't have the direct email other than the generic one. Hopefully you will hear back soon!

                Hi DPA brides!!! I have a question: I just received the wedding guide from Jacy and I'm soooo confused!!! there's so many choices....do you mind telling me what you chose and what made you choose? I believe we are having about 30-40 guests....

                Also, for the reception it says there that we can only pick one appetizer, one soup, one main course? That doesn't make sense

                Are you doing a welcome/rehearsal dinner? Does anyone have a budget spreadsheet that would be willling to share I'm trying to figure out my budget and i'm so confused!

                HELP

                Thanks

                  m&d,
                  I feel your pain :). The wedding guide is confusing. We are choosing the ultimate wedding and adding dinner for an additional 43 people. (We have 63 total). Based on other brides experiences, Jacy the WC is flexible with substituting package items. So we hope to substitute for more pictures and flowers. We aren't going with the silver or gold menu. There are some cheaper dinners found under the banquet menus. We are mixing the Carribean and Mexican buffet to make a specific meal for our guests. It's $35/guest. Our guests get a buffet with 3 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 3 desserts choices. If you have less then 50 guest you can get a served dinner for even less then 35. As for a DJ... we are hoping to use the Desire lounge instead of DJ. We are going to check it out and decide yah or nah on the DJ once we are there. We are taking as IPOD to make sure we have our father/daughter and first dance song.

                  We are doing welcome cocktails at Barracuda bar which should be free. because we aren't reserving anything.
                  After polling the past DPA brides, no one felt like they needed a rehearsal because Jacy/Sandra were so thorough. So we are skipping that.

                  I would love to give you a budget spread sheet! However I ran into the same problems as you are having. What has calmed my nerve is hearing all the reassuring comments from the other brides about the WC being flexible and everything working out well. We know big money items (i.e. the wedding package, the extra dinners and the DJ) and we are just going to go to the resort with an amount of money that we can spend and hopefully Jacy can help us get everything we want for the price we want to spend. If you have any specific budget questions, I'm sure the WC's could answer them for you... however the trend i've seen is that whenever a bride asks in advance she'll get a high priced quote however once they are at the resort sometimes they get extra stuff thrown in (i.e. chair covers, microphone, speakers, etc).

                  Hope this helps. Good luck planning... I remember being 1 year out like you are and worrying about the same things.

                  On another note, my work bridal shower is tomorrow YIPEE!
