There are few things people have asked about or I just thought of since posting my review:-)
1. I can't remember who it was who said they had to fight to get the resort to give them the "night-before" suite for their FI...(this is included in the wedding packages)
But I thought I would mention that while we didn't want the suite the night before, Cecilia offered to give my FI a suite in the afternoon, so he could get ready there.
This, of course, never happened b/c we just didn't have time that day to keep bugging Cecilia about it! (Especially since we couldn't even find her until about 2pm).
So, if this is important to you, maybe assign someone in your group to keep on Cecilia about it. Otherwise it won't happen :-)
2. I am going to attach the checklist I made up for Cecilia. I really do suggest future SMB brides do something similar. Mine is pretty thorough, but obviously having gone through our wedding day, I can see I missed some things.
Basically, my advice is this... write out your checklist as if you were writing it for someone who has absolutely no logic!!! Make sure everything is EXPLICITLY written out.
For example, we discussed at our meeting where our cake and toast would be held. I didn't have this on the list... Stupid me thought discussing it in person would be enough. It's not!!
Another example -- I didn't say to actually serve the wedding cake after it was cut. So it didn't get served:-)
Anyway, hopefully you get the idea... include EVERY detail.

3. One of our guests just posted some pics of our cocktail hour on our share site, so thought I'd share some here!
This should give you an idea of the set-up on the beach:
And for fun:-)
Once again -- any questions -- just ask!!!
