We didnt really want to rent anything to bring in a dancefloor, figured people could just dance in the sand. But will people dance with that small attendance?

We were going to just do a ipod dj type thing. Real laid back. But now Im wondering do we need a dj?

I cant picture how this is going to pan out.....

Do I need someone to get things flowing?
Firstly, fantastic invites! Second, IMO it's not necessary to have a dance floor for so few quests. I think the majority of people will only dance to the slower songs, while only some will get down to the whole array of music. Those people that dance the night away will have fun doing it no matter what is under their feet.

I have a question for you girls too. I just bought a pair of shoes that are a half inch too high for my dress. Will it be tacky if my dress is half an inch off the ground while I walk down the isle? I love.gif these shoes so I really want it to work but not at the expense of looking tacky.

The gazebo is the picture you see in all the Gran Bahia pictures but if I can find one I will send to you.
Good luck and enjoy!
Thank you tata2... havnt been here for awhile, so i jus now noticed...

I just lost my camera and my phone takes horrible pictures. I'll see what I can come up with. I can't even find a picture of the shoes on the internet. :-( As for them and the dress, that can't be done either as it's being altered right now. I guess thats why its bothering me....the fear of the unknown. lol.

You're probably right. I suppose it's a good thing my dress won't be touching the ground during the ceremony, I am the queen of clumsy. I wouldn't put it past my self to trip while walking down the isle and sliding face first into the altar. hahaha.

Great invites Melissa. You did an awesome job on them! I need to make something for our AHR later in the year since we didn't invite anyone other than parents to our wedding. I just don't know if I'm that creative!

OMG ladies, we have close to 97 days till our november weddings, and sooo much to do, how nervous are you guys. I'm excited and nervouse and just want it to be here already,lol. How much are you communicating with your WC or are you putting it in their hands and waiting until you get there.

I'm getting really excited too. Today is the 3 month mark for me!! I've been talking to the WC at our resort for a couple weeks now and its about every or every other day. Just putting the final details on the timeline for the day before we move onto the decor etc.

I had my first stress out yesterday but that is becase people (mostly FI family) haven't even put deposits down yet and Steve and I are going to get stuck with the bill if they don't do it by August 15th!! Crazy but now that its down to the crunch we're hoping some folks get their butts in gear.

It's is getting so exciting. 3 months, geez!!

 

It is very frustrating not having people book, reserve, pay, etc. Still better then an at home wedding though I think. I'd much rather worry about one or two procrastinating than meeting with the florists, the baker, the hall director, the caterer,............ I already love our wedding and it hasn't even happened yet!!

 

Ps Keira - saw your BD pics, they came out awesome!!! I'm getting so excited about mine. How many outfits did you do?
