No problem! I wore my hair mostly down. I did have the pouf in front but the rest was down and curled. I LOVED having it down though now I wish I had had it ALL down :) So many things I would do differently because I loved planning so much :) I did have a "hair ornament" as well. It was windy as HECK on my wedding day (April 25). We were at SMB for 9 days and I think there were only 1-2 days with a flag color other than red. They use the flags to indicate wind strength and red is "hella windy". lol Our wind was not so romantic but it was still gorgeous that day. Here is a picture that shows how my hair was: IMG_0651_1Large.jpg

    Thanks Kits55! You look beautiful by the way even from the back!! :)  I could see it could get really windy especially in the evening.  Maybe I'll do a half up half down...

    Thanks Reeree!! :) Sorry, I can't remember if your ceremony will be on the beach or by the pool but if it's by the pool it will be ever so slightly less windy by the pool. :)

      I am only going to have 20 people including us and I am not sure if it will be worth it to hire a dj. Has anyone had any experience or advice to give? Your opinions are much appreciated! We are having the reception at the gazebo terrace. Thanks!

          you could totally do a DJ with 20 people -ask Cecilia if you can only have the DJ and no MC - it's up to you - you could also use an i-pod docking station with a fun mix

          Hey Melly:

           

          I also only had 20 people at my wedding (including myself, DH, and our two photogs) and we hired the sound system and hooked my Ipod up to it. We made a playlist ahead of time and used that as our music. I think Simistar hired a DJ and her reception looked like a lot of fun with the a cool floor, lights,and dancing. It's probably "cooler" to hire a DJ but for us we didn't have very many dancers which is why we went the sound system route. You could search on the forum for Simistar's review of her wedding at SMB for more info on "to hire or not to hire a DJ"...she was married at SMB in December also.
