    So am I!!! I am taking this wedding with such ease and relax. That was the reason why I chose to do just a bride and groom only wedding so that I wouldnt have to stress over things like this. I just need a simple, white dress and it doesn't even have to be a wedding dress by the way that's why I haven't been too proactive on it. And I'm just like you, I really don't have any particular or special requests, thats the whole idea behing bride-groom only right?

    What are your plans for your weddings? We are having our symbolic ceremony on the beach and the reception near the pool. Are you guys having music during the ceremony or a DJ for the reception?

    Congratulations!
    Lauraereed: I just got married at SMB about two weeks ago and and it's still pretty fresh in my memory. :) For our ceremony we rented speakers (they were having a "sale" for $80 plus the 10% tax. We hooked up our Ipod and there was a guy (i think from the resort) that played the songs at the appropriate times. He actually did a great job and even took my requests afterward. We did not do anything for the reception as it was inside World Cafe, no one would have danced much, and we would have had to pay to get the speakers moved. I was glad we did the iPod thing because then the videographer was able to use our music on the video.

Most of our group is family or friends over 30, so I doubt there will be much dancing going on...

    Kellykm it would be so beautiful to have a solo guitarist for the ceremony. I will say though that if you are doing group pictures AFTER the ceremony then your guitarist may not stick around for the beginning of the cocktail hour. We used the videographer, photographer, and Mexican trio in the Ultimate package. They all only stayed for 60 minutes exactly. It might be different if you are paying for an outside vendor but our group pictures took like 45 minutes! So by the time I was able to get up to the cocktail hour our trio only played like 3 songs and they were already done Are you guys having your reception by the pool? The gazebo there is gorgeous!

      Looks like I've found several other brides on the same wave length as me here! My fiance and I are getting married legally at Secrets Maroma on July 2, 2009 with just us. A simple ceremony on the beach, romantic dinner on the beach, and much time relaxing on the beach - this is what we have been dreaming about! Then we'll have a large reception/party in town mid August to celebrate with family and friends!

      I wasn't even planning to wear a white dress until I went dress shopping on a whim with my mom. Two days later I walked out of a store with a gorgeous white dress that needed some minor alterations! airampz - if you aren't super focused on one particular dress then you will be fine!

      The one area I would like to focus on for my wedding is photos! Must have some great photos of the event! It's been helpful reading over these posts because I'm really considering hiring an outside photographer. Thanks for the tip!

        ebeth, we're got the same plan, wedding for 2, then AHR in August.
        Have you considered a TTD photosession?

          Well,

          I found my dress at David's Bridal. It's very beachy and simple but yet beautiful. I love it! I'll try to post pics soon. The dress was really not a big issue for me and like you pics are very important. I hired an outside photog based on recommendations from the forum, Cecilia Dumas. I have heard great things about her and she is so nice in her emails. I decided to go w/an outside photog because it seemed thats what most people were recommending. Good luck with all your planning and I hope you find a good photog, there are great recommendations on the forum!

          Ebeth: my most concentrated area was definitely the photographer. Pictures were a top priority because I knew we'd have them forever. I don't have my pro pics back yet but I can already say that I'm glad we hired an outside photog!
