    Your pics are great...brings back memories.

    With the room situation I sent Erika a list of all our guest and when they would arrived. That way all our guest were put in the same building. We had no problems with check in.

      Em, everything looked beautiful!!!! I have a question about your decor:

      1) How much tulle did you bring?
      2) The flowers on the arch...are they real? did the resort provide this in the package or were they extra?

      CONGRATS!!!! Everything looked perfect!

        Thank you! I ended up not bringing any tulle or anything for decor. I used the silver shair bows since they were kinda neutral, and the resort has several different colors of tulle for the arch. They also provided the fresh flowers to decorate it. Those flowers end up being on the head table to decorate it for the reception.

          Hi Em, it looked amazing! I loved your hair and you had the perfect dress for a beach wedding!
          If you don't mind, I have a few questions for you, I know you must be busy!!!
          -What time was your ceremony at?
          -Where did you have your reception? Was the food good?
          -What did you all do after dinner?
          -What upgrades/extras did you do on top of the Royal package?

          Thanks so much! Take your time!

          Carly

              -What time was your ceremony at?
              The ceremony was at 6pm
              -Where did you have your reception? Was the food good?
              We had our reception at the steakhouse, and the food was honestly not the best. We had eaten there a few nights earlier, and it was great, so, I think it was just an off night.
              -What did you all do after dinner?
              We ended up hanging out in the main area of the resort where they have the shows at night. There are a couple of bars out there, and lots of tables. We were going to go to the disco when it opened, but it was really stuffy and hot, like it had no ventilation, so we just stayed outside. FYI-The other bride who had her wedding the same day did the same thing.
              -What upgrades/extras did you do on top of the Royal package?
              I just brought a few things, fans for the chairs, a parasol for my MOH, and OOT bags for the guests. I kinda left everything else up to the resort.

              One other piece of advice, is to go with the white cake with white icing. It was FABULOUS!! We got so many comments from all of our guests about it being the best wedding cake they'd ever had, and I agree!

                That's great! Thanks so much! What flavour would the white cake be?

                  Hi Girls! I have a question for you all regarding the music during the ceremony. How do they play the music when you walk down the ailse, is it a speaker system or a boom box?
                  Do you still play music as the ceremony continues or does it stop once you get to the alter? Trying to figure out whether I'm fine with that or I want musicians.
                  Thanks Girls!

                    By the way, I got some great Welcome bags from Toronto. It's a company called stitchy lizard, they are a woven linen and they are waterproof so would make great beach bags, and they are a good size, easy to take down! Minimum order is 50 and without any printing on it they were $6CAD each! They have lots of other bags available but these were the cheapest on there!
                    Okay, enough posts for now!
