    Yeah you bring a good point. Thanks!

     

    Your date is coming up fast! Are you having your ceremony on the beach or at gazebo?

      We are having it in the gazebo and having the white curtains as lciz had suggested. Her pics looked so great with it, I had to add them!

      Plus with it in the gazebo my guests can get a little shade. 

       

      In the webinar they said it seats up to 40 or so...cant remember the exact number since I was only concerned with 25 people.

        well we were going to do black and white, but i didnt want white with the beach/sand.   my dress is ivory, which i thought would be better.   so we decided on red and black

         

        what are your colors?

         

        we have 8 guest including me and my fiance joab.

          I love the black and red! Good choice! Our "theme" if you want to call it that is Mayan, but only in the sense of Earth, fire, water, air....so not so literal. We wanted earthy sort of colors and somehow wound up with chocolate brown, burnt orange and burgundy. My dress is ivory as well. 

          Our guest count is FINALLY complete with 32 of us. People will be trickling throughout the week and some are staying in the hotel zone for the first portion of the week. The bulk of everyone will be there by Thursday and most leaving on Sunday. I'm stressing trying to keep track of everyone!! It really is mostly friends coming, with a handful of family so it should be a fun group...I hope they don't get out of hand!

          I can't believe we're leaving in just over 3 weeks!!! :)  Are you getting excited??

                  Here's a quick rundown of our wedding :)

                   

                  I used the hair and makeup from the resort and it was awesome! I just brought in photos of what I wanted and she did an amazing job. I was a little nervous about it all and did not do a trial run, but everything was perfect. My hair is long and I knew my fiance (now husband) wanted to see me with my hair down and curly. I had my laptop and showed the lady a photo from my Pinterest collection of hair styles the moment just before she started. It worked perfectly. 

                   

                  We really wanted to do a beach wedding, but when it came down to it the gazebo was the winner. It was less windy, we could actually hear each other talking and everything about the gazebo was great! We used the curtains, a runner with roses, the rocks/candles and rented tiffany chairs. It was beautiful. We did ask that the fountains be turned off because even though they were beautiful they were very loud. N. had them turned back on after the ceremony ended. We also requested that champagne be waiting for us and our guests right after the ceremony so we could hang out in the gazebo, have a toast and chat before heading to the beach for group photos. N. had everything timed out perfectly. The X-lounge was perfect for the cocktail hour. We had a Bose system following us around with music that we picked and it really set the mood. It was definately loud enough. The reception was supposed to be at the Spice Terrace, but with an 80% chance of rain they moved it to Touscana restaurant on the terrece. They were able to put up my paper lanterns which looked awesome!! The waitstaff here are the most amazing that we have ever had. When we would think of something that we needed they would already be there with it. I would definately do Touscana Terrece for the reception just for the service they provided. They are also the same servers that provide the breakfast and lunch buffet. LOVE them! Our cake was cute, and I did make a few changes to it before everyone saw it - like turing the cake topper around to a prettier side of the cake and adding some flowers from our centerpieces and moving the plates and cake cutting knife off to the side for photos. It was really amazing and N. and the staff was great. 

                   

                  I actually only saw N. three times, once for our initial meeting, once before I was going to walk down the aisle and at the end of our ceremony waiting with the servers who had the champagne. She was really sweet and always made sure that someone was taking care of us and was a point person for whatever we needed at each of the different locations.

                   

                  Basically if you think of it, they will bring it to you. Everything is so perfect.
