      I love the dress but I cannot see your shoes ... did you have bare foot?

       

      Yes!  After all the worry about shoes after switching to the beach I went barefoot.  I had heels I wore for the pictures and after the reception when I changed into a shorter dress.  I bought wedges from Victoria's Secret for the ceremony but ended up just wearing them for the reception instead.

                  Hi everyone,

                   

                  My apologies for taking so long to get my rear in gear and post since our wedding. We've been moving and starting new jobs and it's been pretty crazy.

                   

                  The wedding was so wonderful. We had an amazing week and the resort is so gorgeous you ladies will love it. I worked with Valeria and she was so helpful. I know everyone else has said the same thing, but to reiterate. The wedding coordinator will make you feel so much more at ease. I went down there feeling so unprepared and not really knowing what the experience would be like. In seeing my girlfriends plan their own weddings I think I was prepared to be flipping out, but Valeria and her assistant Yolanda (who is an absolute doll) really took care of everything.

                   

                  We got married on the beach and didn't do any of the sand ceremonies or extra things like that. The weather was great and being on the beach really kept everybody cool. I wore a long veil and put one pin in to anchor it down and would really recommend the same to anyone else wearing a long veil as it can get a little windy. The one thing that I did that I would not recommend doing is getting ready at the spa. They will not let you have food or drinks in there and we got married at 5 so it was a looong afternoon with no comfort eating/drinking. Definite regret, the only one though. Ceremony was nice and short and the setup was nice. I included a photo of the setup. Its what you get included in the Secrets of Love package and we brought our own chair bows and the starfish for the chairs.

                   


                  Our cocktail hour was also on the beach. We upgraded to the Mexican tapas and it was pretty good. I probably wouldn't upgrade though if I had my time back. The 1 hour goes by so quickly once you get over there and though we wanted the upgraded bar too, you can't really drink enough in an hour to make it worthwhile. One thing I would also recommend is asking if there are other event occurring at the same time as your wedding at your selected location. During our cocktail hour there was also a beach party happening pretty nearby which kinda was a bummer. If there is events happening maybe you could request to be further apart.

                   

                  The reception we did at the gazebo. We brought our own centrepieces and Yolanda set them all up. One thing I will say is that the food at the resort was super good, but the food at our reception was noticeably even better, which was nice.

                   

                  The whole thing was great and as long as you go into it knowing it's a different kind of wedding than the traditional at-home wedding and be a bit relaxed about it you'll have a great time and anything that isn't perfect won't matter and won't be remembered anyway.
                   

                  So exciting for all of the brides on their way down the aisle in the near future. I wish I could do it all over again!

                    Congratulations, Kristinallily!

                    Your wedding dress is beautiful!  Thank you for the tip on the salon.  Did you get your hair done there?...love it! 

                    Was wonder if you could share where you got the chair sashes and the star fish...really cute!!  I'm debating between the chair covers and non chair covers...really like what you did.  Congratulations again and thank you for sharing your experience! - Karin
