Who did you use for your photographer? Did you use the one at the resort or someone diffrent? Oh and did you have your make-up done at the salon?
        Hi Melissa- I used Citali from Claudia Rodriguez. Will post a review when I get the pics! Plus post the pics of course!

        I did not have my makeup done there. My step mom did it for me. I gave the free makeup job to my MOH. She liked it although my step mom 'smoothed it out' a little.

            Amy, great review! And you look like a gorgeous bride in the pictures! Reading your review has made me so much more excited and less anxious. Thanks for all of the detailed information!

            Where did you get your chinese lanterns and how many did you bring? I had a couple of those years and years ago as a teenager, but I remember them being fairly difficult to set up; there was wire cutting and fusing involved and everything! Did the staff put all of them together for you, as well?

            Did you mention that the draping material for the reception had been left there for you?

              I got the paper lanterns from this website: Japanese Kimono, Chinese Paper Lanterns, Chopsticks, Chinese Dresses

              We ordered 24 or 25 of white round paper lanterns. We got the battery operated ones and then bought AA batteries separately and brought those down as well. They come flat and that's how i packed them and gave them over to Landy. She assembled and hung them (and put the batteries in them, etc). I'm not even sure if they hung all of them up to be honest. I thought the 12 inches were fine but 14 inch would be good too. I wouldnt' recommend going smaller than 12 inches though. It was all pretty easy.

              THe material was purchased and left by a bride that got married a week before me. Can't Wait. Landy said she'd let me use it and just charge a set up fee but she made it sound like it was a huge favor. My guess is that she'll charge any other brides going forward. Not sure what happens to all of this stuff post-wedding... Definitely ask Landy ahead of time.

              Your wedding is so soon, Lauren! You must be getting psyched! yay!!! I'm still living on a cloud and stalking my photoshare account for new photos daily! It was such a beautiful place. Your wedding will be awesome!

                Amy,
                I was just wondering if you still had your inspiration pic for your bouquet, if you do, do you mind posting it? Ha, I'm getting so anxious waiting for you to post your pics, i keep checking almost every day! I can only guess how you are feeling waiting for them to come in the mail!!!!!

                  Thanks, Amy! Yes, I am getting psyched! A little nervous...I had double-surgery on my foot not too long ago, so not only is my foot still swollen and I'm having to learn to walk all over again, but I also haven't been able to work out for 3 months!!! Furhter, my bridesmaids dresses still have not come in and now I have 2 extra--2 of my girls just told me they're not coming. I'm at the "whatever" phase now. I'm sure everything will work out, though.

                  Thanks for the response!

                  Lauren

                    Here is the document that I sent to landy and printed and brought with me. WE used the first pic as the base and decided to add a few other colors/flowers to it.

                    Claudia said my pics from Citali should arrive by about January 10th... so i'll post the pro pics shortly after I get them. PROMISE!!

                    Merry Christmas everyone!
