hahaaaa!! You made me LOL at work! Sure, you can help plan mine!! We were thinking of spending our wedding night at the Westin, away from everyone else., and the fact that I have a little love affair with the Westin...best beds ever!! My parents are in a timeshare with some other family members, and all of our friends are staying at the RIU, including us. Our ceremony time is 5 or 5:30, I don't even know right now. Thank you so much for all of your tips, awesome! I'm glad you loved it and had fun. It doesn't sound like too much stresses you out anyways. What kinds of things did you buy? Please don't leave the forum until after I get married??!!!

Here are some answers for you:
We ended up buying the aloe here in the states because we bought mini bottles for our OOT bags and they were only a $1.00 a piece here. I did see some Aloe vendors in Aruba, but it seemed a little pricey. All the items for the OOT bags were bought here before we got there, just because I knew it would be more expensive there and I didn't know what I could get there. We did buy lots of souvenirs and stuff for our house there after the wedding. We got married at 6:30pm, and it wasn't too hot by then. It's very windy in Aruba, so you constantly have those winds coming thru to cool you off. They did not have any shade for the ceremony since it was right on the beach, but they ceremony was only 15 mins long, so it wasn't a long time for anyone to be outside, plus the sun was going down so it wasn't right on anyone. We didn't do fans or anything like that, and everyone seemed just fine. What time is your ceremony? If it is more in the daytime, I would probably recommend a little bit of shade if you think it will run a little long.
Believe it or not, I miss all the planning! It was stressful at times, but so much fun! I had such a great time doing everything and I can't believe it is all over. I kinda don't know what to do with myself now...haha! Need any help with your wedding?
Oh btw, we stayed at The Westin our 1st night there and it was great! Some of our guests stayed there too. Very nice pool and not as crowded on the beach there.
