Wow...thank you all for your wonderful comments. If you can't view the pictures you have to create a free account with snapfish. I hope I can answer all your questions and if you have more just feel free to ask.

 

Shoes...They looked like flip flops from the front but they are actually heels. They were really comfortable and I had no problems with them. They weren't skinny heels so they worked.

 

Guys outfits...the shirts were orderded in advance at Penners: Guayaberas, Mexican Shirts, Hawaiian Shirts, and Guayabera Shirts along with my husbands pants. The other guys pants were from macys. They were alfani. Cubavera makes nice pants and shirts along with Tommy Bahama.

 

Band....The music entertainment agency ENLACE "the reality show" works with Nicole at Las Caletas. She recommended this band and they were great. The guitarist was a friend we flew out there. We found out a week before the wedding that the harpist couldn't do most the songs we requested. He was a new contact for Las Caletas so now they know what to expect with him. He only wanted to bring his diatonic harp which limits the song choice. It's a good the my husband and I are pro musicians and had a friend that could go at the last minute. It worked out perfectly.

 

Other details....one of my bridesmaids is in beauty school and she did everyone hair and makeup. It turned out great. I also brought my own photographer. The wedding coordinater, Nicole, was great. She is awesome to work with and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The ceremony began around 6:15/6:30. I just went with the timing and it all was great. We didn't have time for the flower/garter toss because we were busy playing with the band at the end but we all went back to the hotel and did it immediatley there.

 

It all turned out better that I could have ever imagined. We are so happy we did it there. Everyone keeps telling us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Having a destination gave us so many memories we'll never forget and the guests will never forget it either.

 

Let me know if you have anymore questions. I'd love to help in anyway that I can!!

OMG...what a stunning wedding!!!!

 

I absolutely love the bridesmaids bouquest and the rose petals on the tables. They are in the exact colours I want for my wedding. Did you purchase the bouquets there as well as the decorations? Also, love your hair. Did you have it professionaly done?

I wanted to get a hairstylist originally but the cost was too much. One of my bridesmaids did it and it turned out great. She also did the other bridesmaids and everyones make up too. The flowers turned out perfect. I didn't know exactly what it would turn out to be. Nicole, the WC, sent me ideas and I sent colors and pics of flowers I liked and she worked with it and was exaclty what I wanted. The extra flowers we purchased were the flowers for my hair, the centerpieces for each table, Extra petals for the flower girls and to scatter, corsages for the mothers, the bridesmaids bouquets, and the guys boutineers. The extra cost for these things was actually not that much. Enjoy the planning and let me know if I can help in any way:)

So beautiful! Thank you so much for the post!

 

When was your wedding? I have worried about the sun setting too early, but from your pics it was still nice and bright! Nicole assured me that we would have time to take pics before the sun goes down, but it's nice to see it in film.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
