      I did make them myself! Thanks for the positive feedback, it was definitely a labor of love.

      I have a copy of sample ceremony outline from Nicole to send you since I can't attach just yet. Hope it helps.

            hey everyone, I just received confirmation from Nicole that you CANNOT do a slideshow during your reception dinner if you do not rent out the restaurant to make it private.

                If you dont do your reception at Uncle Tony's, I dont see why you cant have your ceremony on the beach on Thursday. The beach party doesnt start until later in the evening - I wanna say around 6 or 7pm.



                 Hmm...I think we might actually do it at Unclue Tony's, I like that it's open air. But My FI and i talked and now we might do it on wednesay so it's easier for people to get off work for just that one week. A lot of our guest want to stay a week and if we did it thursday they'd probalbly end up staying the weekend and into next week.

                      Thank you! LOL, It was pretty hot making out in the rain!! Luckily the 'jungle' setting really worked with the downpour.

It also looks like they moved them inside afterwards for you?  How many people did you have at your wedding? It looks like you had a private reception.   Where did you go to take your trash the dress? Where did you get the robes for your bridesmaids? I loved them! Did you have your make up done by the hotel as well? It looks like your hair turned out great.

                      Congratulations, you have made me so excited!!!
                       


                       


                      Ok, tried to answer everything below:

                       

                      It looks like you brought your own fabric for the huppah.  I also want to do this, how much did you bring?

                       

                      Someone posted the huppa measurements in this thread, so I used those measurements to figure out how much to bring. Just do an advanced search in this thread for huppa measurement and you'll find them.

                       

                      It also looks like they moved them inside afterwards for you? 

                       

                      I think the fabric for the reception backdrop was a separate piece (My mom and sisters made them after I gave the measurements). But yes, they set it all up for me.

                       

                      How many people did you have at your wedding? It looks like you had a private reception.  

                       

                      I did have a private reception, and I only had 23 people. I kinda lied to the WC and told her we had 40 ppl coming. My plan was to just invite some 'new friends' aka others from the resort to make up the difference (we had five days there before our wedding day). Or if that didn't work, I was going to do just a cocktail reception on the balcony with appetizers. Luckily, the resort management allowed me to have it with just my guests because the resort wasn't super busy on that particular day. I did have to pay for 40 people though and I used a lot of persuasion to make it happen.

                       

                      Where did you go to take your trash the dress?

                       

                      We went to the green grotto caves in Runaway Bay. They're about 45 mins to an hour away. We didnt even get to shoot in half the really cool places there cuz the rain and mosquitoes kinda killed the mood. But I REALLY recommend it. Google it for images. Also, call them ahead of time and book a time slot and make a deal - there is an entrance fee but you can work something out with them.

                       

                      Where did you get the robes for your bridesmaids? I loved them!

                       

                      Thank you! I actually sewed them myself then took them to an embroidery place. You could easily buy robes and bring them to an embroiderer to have their names embroidered on them.

                       

                      Did you have your make up done by the hotel as well? It looks like your hair turned out great.

                       

                      Yep, hair and make up done at the spa - all my girls had both hair and make up done there.

                       

                      Congratulations, you have made me so excited!!!

                       

                      Thanks! Youre gonna have a blast!

                      Ya, for the small difference in price it makes sense to stay the full week. I hope you get the date you want!!

                      We actually started REALLY early because there was another wedding at the suites that day and they booked all the 11am-ish spots, I think we started at around 8 or 9am (whenever the spa opened). But I really liked going early, I didnt worry when I had them re-do my 'poof' 3 times and my appointment ran late cause I knew it was no rush. Plus I had time to make a few changes to my hair and make up in my room afterwards. We weren't sitting around waiting by any means... The walk down the aisle came fast enough! :D
