I went with the florist that Juney recommended, I don't recall the name. Deciding on what flowers I wanted was a difficult task. In the end I just told Juney I wanted a nice tropical mix( minus callalillies) and it turned out lovely. I booked photog & hair/makeup directly and just about everything else I did thru the resort.
I sent out save the dates about one year out and formal invites about 3-4 months before with an rsvp of 2 months before the day. Some people never rsvp'ed ( yay or nay) and that was a pain!
For me it was all of the little things at the end that got me stressed. Try to do as much as you can now. I created an extensive to do list of things I needed to get done each month and attached a shopping list and tackled it that way. Just as long as the main things are taken care of( bride and grooms attire, officiant, food/drinks and guests), it will all fall into place. Don;t stress the small stuff- Keep it simple. Your guests will be so thrilled to be on a private island for your wedding, that's all that matters.
Don't forget to enjoy this engagement period with your fiance! As soon as I got the ring on my finger it was wedding, wedding, wedding for me. I spent weeks afterwards just unwinding and I'm still doing wedding related stuff( thank you cards).

Juney recommended elas's flowershop. They dont really respond and keep referring me to facebook for their work. Who did you use? Also did you book your vendors through Juney or direct? What else should i be focusing on since your a pro now!! haha

Thanks for your help!!
