      Hey Rory, I don't know if I'm ready! I haven't done much but I went to pick up my dress on Saturday and had to make some adjustments so it won't be ready until the 28th...lets see, I ordered some chair bows on ebay, no idea what I'm doing to my hair...Jacy still hasn't gotten back to me on my list of questions! I'll be leaving NY on 4/6 staying at Dreams until 4/11 then checking in at Secrets Maroma for my honeymoon until the following week. Our families will be getting to Dreams on 4/7 and 4/8, on 4/9, the wedding day, my FI is hosting a fishing trip in the morning for the men. On 4/10, we're taking everyone to Tulum and Xelha. It should be a fun time and I'm getting excited! We also ordered underwater cameras for the kids to use at Xelha.

        I have spoken with many and I think I'll be going with Flight Centre. The group agents are fery helpful and have got back to me quite quickly. I tried Expedia, but they don't do group bookings.

          I got this in "Jade" from ebay: Organza Sashes Bows Chair Ties Wedding Banquet Covers - eBay (item 300289733313 end time Mar-28-09 09:34:01 PDT)

          To match this color for the dress that my moh chose for herself:
          COLOR Bridesmaid Dresses - Browse David's Bridal's bridesmaids gowns by color

          She chose a long dress, I don't remember which one it was but it was chiffon.

          The best man will be wearing a linen shirt that same color.

          The ring bearer and flower girl are both 2 years old so my sister and one of my sisters in law will also be wearing matching mermaid color dresses, short chiffon to complement the moh. They chose what they wanted I have no idea, I only told them what color to get the dresses in. They will be holding hands with the babies to walk with them. The ring bearer will be wearing a little guayabera shirt and the flower girl an ivory sundress.

          Not a conventional bridal party but I thought it would be a cute idea.

          I have no idea what I want to do about the flowers or anything like that...

            That is such a beautiful color and will really look nice with the Caribbean as a backdrop. I think the little ring bearer in a guarabera shirt is going to be adorable!! If you have any ideas for flowers - bring them with you. You'll be there enough before the wedding to show Jacy what you want. She told my niece that the florist can do pretty much anything as long as the flowers are available. Lyales flowers were very pretty, and the arrangements on the gazebo were nice too, so I think they do a pretty good job of that.
            You seem very laid back and calm, so everything should be great.

              Thank you. I think I'm just mostly looking forward to the vacay...the wedding is secondary. I can't wait until its over and I get to jump in the beach with my dress on!

                Patsah,

                I love the color you chose. Very bold and vibrant! I know what you mean about looking forward to the vacation aspect of it! Me too (although I have a long time before my vacation starts!)

                Also, I love nontraditional wedding parties. For me, my FI didn't want any groomsmen so just my sisters will be my honorary MOHs but we aren't having a best man or groomsmen or anything. That is the great thing about destination weddings- they are so flexible!

                  Hey Patsah,

                  Those are all good questions and some I'd like the answers to also. PLEASE let me know what her response is. I just sent her one today. She seems to be getting back to me within 3-4 days.

                    Congrats Lyales! I'm so glad everything went smoothly. Did you do the decoration or did the resort? Also, I can't remember what package you got. I've been trying to catch up on all the posts so my brain is fried! The bouquet was beautiful! Did it come with your package, did you pay extra for it and if you purchased off the resort where and how much? I was also wondering if you paid the $80 per person extra to have your reception on the beach?

                      Patash-
                      Are you leaving the sashes there, or bringing them back home. My color is simliar for the girls. It is POOL from David's Bridal. I was going to do pink and that color in order to not worry about having a perfect match. Anyway, thanks for the link!
