    Aww thanks!  I'm glad you found it helpful.  You'll love this forum.  Let me know if you have any other questions!  Good luck with your planning!!

    I wasn't able to view these, any chance I could get you to send them to me or re-post them?

    Hello ladies!  I am trying to get back through all the posts and read your advice, but I was wondering if anyone had anything that they recommended that we address with Cecilia ahead of time, questions we should ask, etc. We have a hold for November 23, 2013 and we are going to move forward, but I am trying to make sure all my ducks are in a row before we do.  All suggestions are appreciated :-)  We are currently thinking getting married on the beach and then having the reception on the Gazebo Terrace. 

     

    Also, I wanted to know if anyone had a list of "what to bring" and/or "what you need for the wedding".  I am a big list girl and I'm trying to get my budget in order (although at times it feels like it has taken on a mind of it's own).  I am just trying to think of everything beyond, shoes, dress, flowers, photographer, food, etc.

     

    Thank you!!!!

        When you confirm your wedding date and have paid the deposit, be sure to reserve where you want your reception to be. Do that by letting cecilia know and then signing the contract and sending it back to her. Otherwise your preferred reception location/time can be taken by someone else.

        Hi everyone!!! We got back Sunday, but things have been so crazy since then. I do plan to write a full on review, but I am waiting for the video and photos to come in to give a full and accurate review. 

         

        HOWEVER, I did want to go ahead and tell you ladies that we had the most amazing, breathtaking, effortless event. It was even more beautiful that I had even imagined. Cecilia did an over the top job of executing my vision. I did bring a TON of stuff, and stressed out HEAVILY about it, but at the end of the day, all that stress was WELL WORTH IT!!!!

         

        I do  highly encouarge to use the Preferred Club as a bride. I was in the Preferred Lounge everyday working on last minute details. But please be assured, upcoming SMB brides, you will have a magical day, guaranteed!

        Here are some photos from our big day! I tried to include decor photos. We upgraded the beach chuppah to the white ceramic one that Planner 1 Events provided, and it was absolutely stunning!!!
