      My WC is Jacki and she has been wonderful, always had lots of advice and great ideas/options to keep costs down.

      If anyone would like me to check anything out for them seeing as we will be there May 1st thru 9th, perhaps take some photo's for you I will be happy to do so.

        I WILL BE GETTING MARRIED THE SAME WEEK AS YOU AT THE SAME RESORT!!! How exciting. We are getting married June 14th 2012! I still have so much to plan and I am so nervious about how everything will turn out. Everyone keeps telling me to calm down.

         

        So far we arent getting a DJ because my fiance and my dad think it is a waste of money. But I feel totally nervous that with just an ipod it will be cheesy. Im sure everything will all workout in the end but I wish I was there already so I could see what everything looks like.

         

        7 MORE WEEKS GIRL!!! It is coming up so fast. If you have any questions or just want to share ideas of what we both are doing that would be awesome. I have so many questions too and I have had a hard time getting ahold of the wedding planner down there.

        You can email me at themsbauer@live.com or find me on facebook "Angela Bauer". My profile picture is me with my cousin at her wedding! Hope to talk to you soon!!! Maybe we need a shot of tequila when we get to the resort!!

         

        oh! and what are the dates of your trip, im curious?

         

        Wedding wishes,

        Angela

Reading all the posts on here, I am questioning so many things I felt I was set on! Like have the reception on the beach and doing my own music instead of a DJ. Anyone that has done a beach reception, did you have lights under the tables and was this enough light at night or do they have other ways to light up the area? I am doing a light-up dance floor in the sand too so I think that will help.  Does anyone have pictures from their wedding with silk flowers? I am considering this but I do not want them to look fake. My girls are wearing coral colored dresses and am nervous to do the resort flowers because it is such a hard color to match.

           

          Thanks!

          Hey Sarah! I am getting married the same week as you at the same resort. I tried replying to this post before but I am not sure if it worked! I am getting married on June 14th 2012 at DPA. I am so excited but I am having the same anxiety as you. I feel like I have so much do to before I get there. I have been questioning everything too. I really want a DJ but my dad and fiance think it is a waste of money. :( Oh well I cant have everything I guess. I would love to chat with you or share information on our wedding if you would like. I am sure it would be helpful to both of us!! This way we could give our men a break, well at least mine. I keep chatting his ear off about it all.

           

          I am also curious about the dates you are going. We arrive on the 10th and leave the 17th.

           

          If you would like to chat about the wedding you can email me at themsbauer@live.com or find me on facebook "Angela Bauer". My facebook photo is me and my cousin for her wedding. Hope to hear from you!

           

          Wedding wishes,

          Angela Bauer

                      Hi 2012 DPA brides! I'm about 6 months out from our november DPA wedding! Can't wait! Got a lot of the big things done: Dress - chiffon Maggie sottero Location - gazebo at 4pm the reception at el patio STD - sent in feb- made onshutterfly with pic of us in snow in our swimsuits in chairs with coronas cheersing! Website - www.weddingwire.com/BennettFischer Travel agent - hired and have about 10 groups booked already! Expect 60-70 ppl total! Got agent recommendations thru this site and she's been great so far! BM dresses - persimmon bill levkoff chiffon style 565 (sweetheart w corset back) http://www.billlevko...smaid-dress/565 GM - tan perry Ellis crimini vested suits w persimmon ties (likely just wear vests if too hot for jackets) http://www1.macys.co...-suit?ID=657069 yet to do: Photographer - hire out? Del sol ? Lulu? Or just go with resort photographers? Decor - bring anything on my own or is resort setup enough? Invites - Any tips on does/donts for dest wedding? What info to include (vs What they'll just get from website)? Thinking of asking for song requests in the RSVP card too! Anyone include entree selections? Favors - planning for bags and personalized sunglasses and plastic insulated cups w lids/straws (I always bring mine to all-inclusive bc cups so small there!) I like the idea of wedding guest guide in the bag too since large group from all over world and different points in our lives! Week itinerary - so planning for welcome night bonfire on beach with cocktail - appetizers after quick walk thru w wedding party; then frid thinking of hiring fat cat sailing catamaran trip for our entire group - booze cruise, dancing, swimming, snorkeling. Need to book all this but thats what I'm thinking about for anything structured besides wedding ceremony-reception. What else do I need to plan ?! I welcome advice - tips!!! Happy wedding planning!!! Katie
