        Hi Kerri,

        Thanks so much for sharing the photos!!

        Did you happened to ask for the price of the bouquets and table arrangement?
        Do you know if the resorts makes the wedding program and menu card (as part of the wedding service)?

        Ladies,

        Just found out last Friday that Signature vacations does not do Blue Bay anymore. So, the TA had to frantically find other options for me. Luckily Transat was able to price match but we're now leaving for MR 2 days earlier. So, I'm in the midst of changing my wedding date by a day! Another head ache.

        On a happier note, I'm thinking of ideas for the OOT bags and favours. Having trouble finding mini aloe vera gel (for burns) and mini sunscreen for the OOT. As for the favour, my FH really wants to give away locally made photo frames but I don't want to have to go looking for them when we get there. So, I'm gonna have to find frames here. Any ideas on where to get these things?

        JO

          I am leaving in 2 weeks for the wedding, and I finlly got this email from Candy outlining the wedding day. Note that we only have 20 guests coming, and we chose the "Silver" Package - US $1650.

          "Package: “Love is all you need, Silver”

          5:00pm Ceremony on the beach: (the ceremony takes aprox 40 minutes)
          Ceremony performed by a non-denominational minister.
          Please find attached the set up options that we have available (please note that natural flowers are not included in the package, let me know if you want to order flowers for the decorations)
          We will set up the chairs with white or beige covers, and if you want we can put mats under the chairs.
          Music: Please confirm if are you bringing your own music in a CD or I-pod, or do you have a special song I can look for you? If you prefer to have live music please like the trio of guitars please let me know
          5:45pm Toast: The toast can be after the ceremony this way you can have photos with the toast also. The toast will be with sparkling wine.
          Photos: Photos start when the ceremony start and after the toast you can take around 20 more minutes for pictures walking on the beach, etc. Please let e know if you want to get any photo wedding package

          6:30pm Wedding Reception: We offer in the package the dinner reservation in one of our a la carte restaurants, they are Mexican, Italian, French, Steak House, Oriental and Seafood (please note that this restaurants are open for all the guest)
          Please note: Restaurant whit AC have a code dress, gentleman have to wear long pants, close shoes, and shirt with sleeves. All these restaurants are open from 6:00 pm until 10:00pm.

          We have open 3 of the 6 restaurants one night and the other 3 options the next night, I don’t have the schedule of the restaurants that will be opened on your wedding day but I will be sending you the information as soon as I get the information.

          CAKE.- We serve the cake after the dinner at the restaurant you have chosen the cake called Ribbon´s. Please confirm which flavour you would like to have for the cake the options we have are: vanilla, white chocolate or almonds.

          FLOWERS.- The bridal bouquet you want is the No. 7 with calla lilies and white roses.

          I am booking the live guitar trio, which is US $340, but I haven't heard a sample of their music. I'm sure whatever it is will be better than a CD! I also asked if they have a tres leches cake.

          I am going to try to post the location set-up pictures as well as the list of extras in another post.

          Anyways, hope this helps.

          Natalie

                Ladies all this info is so helpful its not even funny! I also really appriciate the photos, I went from being nervous to really excited, it also seems that once Candy starts to focus on you all is well!
                I'm also not sure what to do about gifts for everyone, I can't seem to make up my mind. Once I do I will let you all know, but in the meantime if anyone comes up with anything let me know!
                At this point I think that is all I have to do besides the photographer, which I think we have pretty much decided... Where does the time go? I thought I had forever and now its 3 months away! AHHH!
