I also loved my cake, and it was DELICIOUS!! I am normally not a big cake person, but I loved that cake! We ordered a three-tier, which was too much, but my husbandâ€s parents werenâ€t able to make it to the wedding since his father is ill, so we ended up sending the top tier of the cake to them through my aunt, so they could have a piece! And on our last day at the resort, we had the whole group up to our room for coffee and cake, so it all worked out! They just put it in a freezer for us and delivered it to our room for us along with the coffee and some plates!

aww congrats! wow you look Amazing! looove your pics! so happy for you :)

im glad to hear someone finally say that they liked the cake! What kind was it?? thats cool that they saved it for you to eat later! i like that.

can I also ask you what your music was for the ceremony? did you have a few different songs?

thanks so much for the review! all of us future brides cant wait!

Congrats on everything!! You look great... Cant wait to see more :)

Thanks so much! I really enjoyed the beach location, it just depends on your preference and of course the weather! When we picked the beach location, Cecilia indicated that this would be the Tower beach, unless it was too windy, and then it would be located on the main beach. I think the tower beach would be a little more private, so that's probably why that is the first choice. As long as you don't mind kicking off your shoes and having the sand between your toes, then I think the beach is a great choice! Good luck with your planning!

You look beautiful and it looked like everyone had a great time. Congrats Mrs!
Thanks for your comment!! We had a blast!! In terms of my hair, since it was such a windy week, I was concerned about having my hair down, but in the end decided to stick with it since that is what I had envisioned. She put LOTS of spray in my hair so it held up pretty good. It did get in my face a few times, but it wasn't bad at all. It is windy on your way up to the gazebo, but I found that it wasn't as windy once you are actually up there. I loved how it turned out and I'm happy I decided to stick with what I liked. I did however decide not to go with the veil, and instead put some flowers in. By the end of the night, the curls got more relaxed but I think that's to be expected.

Not sure if you know of this site, Project Wedding - Wedding planning, wedding vendor reviews, wedding photos, and more!, but I found it really helpful when looking for hairstyles, makeup, etc. Good luck!

Thanks for the kind words! The cake that we ordered was vanilla, however there were layers in between, so I'm not sure if it was actually the vanilla or if it was the layered cake? It was sooo good though, everyone loved it!

This was our song list for the ceremony, a lot of mellow/beachy songs. The song I walked down the aisle to has special meaning to us :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
