    My original time for the welcome dinner was 6:30, but they changed it to 7:30, which I liked better. The pool closes around 6:30pm, so if you have more toward 7-7:30 you give people more time in the pool! I would just try to get a time and place confirmed with Nicole before you go. We just had to cross out the time and place and write in the new one before we handed out the itinerary. It's so hard to know what will happen. Just try to be flexible i guess ;). TBA would be good or just leave a line to fill in.

    GREAT GREAT REVIEW...BEAUTIFUL WEDDING!!! LOVE THE CEREMONY SET UP!

     

    WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR THE WELCOME DINNER ON ITENARARY OR INVITATIONS? I KNOW THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN TO ME.

     

    DO YOU SUGGEST PUTTING TBA INSTEAD?

      I actually never called Nicole...I just sent her my last wedding details. But if you have pressing matters you need discussed I would call her. I never heard from her either after I sent my details. I did hear from Tiffany, saying everything was fine for me venues--but then they had to change my welcome dinner venue, so that really sucked.

       

      Decor was really easy. They are like pro's and know what to do with a little guidance. Just type up directions of where you want things. I didn't do this and had to write it all down the night before on hotel paper! haha. They really decorated Aunt Ruby's so beautifully. I was impressed. and so were my guests.

       

      Our Final Bill was pretty much what we expected. When we met with Nicole before the wedding she went over the bill then and there. I had my husband do a final look over, but everything we had extra was on there and explained by Nicole. I do suggest bringing that printout when you checkout because all the charges are forwarded to the front desk. You just want to be sure everything is correct and consistent. Our bill was the same. we just did it to be sure. :)

       

      The hot and cold pools are on the ladies and mens side of the spa. However, they allow ladies to use the men's pool as long as you are with a man. The worker told me "the men don't care if women are in there." But ladies don't want men on their side. haha. It was a fun time. we used them a lot when it was raining. There is even a steam room and sauna. And few different shower types. It's cool.

       

      Hope that helps!

I sent her my final wedding details weeks ago and she hasn't replied so I have no idea what's going on for centerpieces, table cloths etc. I am only 27 days from leaving so I am getting worried. Am I going to be able to decide these things when I get there? I have been emailing Tai Floral but they are no better at answering questions.

      Did you run into any unexpected expenses when you paid your bill? I have tried to add up what I think ours will cost from our final wedding details but I'm worried there will be costs we don't know about.  I asked Nicole to email me back with a total but she won't answer. It's very annoying!

      You posted using the hot/cold pools at the spa.  How many people can use these at once?

       

      Thanks Misse17!

        Hey Ladies,

        I forgot a couple things in my review...of course.

         

        We didn't have a cocktail hour added as an extra. We just had our guests meet in the Main Lobby Bar (which I included a pic of). This worked out great. And no extra charge.

         

        Also, we had OTT bags, but we just handed them out as guests arrived to the resort. You can go down to the front desk and they will give you your guests room #'s. However, if you call they will not give you the room #. They will just connect you to their room via phone. This worked out fine. We got a work out going to all the rooms, but it was worth it b/c we were drinking and eating sooo much!! haha.

         

        Plus, we were able to stay at the Mango Walk Club a little longer because it was a Sunday, so there weren't as many people to step on my dress. But if you are going to be there fri or sat.--you might have to go back and change. It gets a little busy. I may have already said this, but just in case! Happy Planning!

          right after our engagement, i sent out engagement announcements and put up a wedding website...that way folks could leave messages and/or get info online...i sent the STDs a year in advance..i'm not doing formal invitations as i figure the STDs was enough and so i've opted to do nice OOTs for those that will be traveling..we're going to send those in advance so we don't have to lug everything down with us..they'll go out 6 weeks in advance of the wedding...

            I would love to see them, post some pics! I'm working on mine as well :) I love the boarding pass idea, going to send them now and then I'll make passport booklets with the week's info for everyone that is coming!

              Wow, it's my turn......we leave for our June 23rd wedding on Sunday morning. I can't believe that 7 months has flown by this fast! Thank you to all the wonderful people on this board for all their ideas, advice, reviews and templates. I honestly don't think I would have been able to pull all this together without BDW and especially this thread's help.

               

              Special thank you to IslandGirl910, EHolt and MrsDeloatchtoBe! Without you ladies, I think I would have lost my mind, but here I am calmly counting down the hours until we leave, THANK YOU!

               

              I promise to leave a review when we are back, but have taken up EHolt's approach....we are just going to go with the flow and enjoy ourselves.  Whatever happens, it will still be a fabulous, joyous, loved fill day and nothing can change that.

               

              MrsDeloatch you're up next, have a fabulous wedding and IslandGirl, I will call you the minute we are back from the honeymoon.

               

              Cheers!

                  Kecia (prettysparklie), I just told my husband I needed to check on you!  I am glad to hear you are calm and excited.  I wish you, soon-to-be hubby and all your guests a great trip!  can't wait to hear when you get back and I will be thinking of you all!  Safe travels!

                    Good luck Prettysparklie!  Can't wait to see the review!

                    Beachbum21- I'll post pics tomorrow.  I am going to the paper store to get some finishing details and then they will be perfect!  I've been obsessed with these STDs for the past 72 hours.  I gotta get them done soon before they take over my life.

                    AHHHH!  These are soooooo cute!  I love them.  And I love the pictures from the engagement!  That's a great idea about the OOTs!  I'll have to keep it in mind when I start getting responses back.  I have no idea what to expect for guest attendance when I send out invites.  We have so much family and so many friends that this may end up being a headache.  What's the expected turnout on a DW anyway?
