    Hi ladies,

     

    Well I'm still on vacation at the hotel and probably shouldn't be online during our honeymoon, but we've had a lot of down time. The weather was great up until 3 days ago and then it started raining everyday and always overcast. It hasn't stopped us from doing our activities but more reluctant to hang out pool/beach side. I will give a full review of the hotel and wedding day when I get back. My wedding day did not go as smoothly or as planned as everyone else's unfortunatly, I don't want to scare anyone because it seems like my experience is one that does not happen often.

     

    Good luck to all the upcoming weddings and congratulations to all the brides who have already been married.

          Hi!!  I know I am so so so excited!  It will be 2 months from Sunday and we leave 2 months from today!  Planning is good.  Yamina has all of my specifications so now I really feel like it's just about getting there.  I am bringing fake flowers for the wedding because I wanted ones that were too expensive to be real.  I am worried about packing everything we need to bring.  I am getting fresh centerpieces of floating orchids with a candle in the top.  What about you?  I can't wait!!!

                Hi everyone, I have been absent from here for a little while and am trying to catch up but i need opinions.. my fiance and I feel differently about when we should actually get married since we are doing the symbolic ceremony at dreams on 2.22.13...

                 

                I feel we should get married before so that when we are there with our friends and family we are celebrating the marriage (that already took place)..

                 

                He feels we should do it right after because if we are already married what is the sense in the whole walking down the isle, exchanging vows thing if in fact we are already husband and wife. He feels we can just come back and sign the papers but the symbolic ceremony is our wedding and we are considered married after it.. but i might be dissapointed when i realize the next day we are actually still not really married LOL

                 

                I NEED OPINIONS!!!! thank you!!

                  Im in Brooklyn so we are probably having the same flight problems... everything is very expensive right now I am actually worried for my guests!! I am estimating my weddign at around 20,000 total.. and hope not to go above this but I think I am still leaving stuff out. I just feel the welcome dinner is where they are taking advantage because those guests can go eat for free seperatly but if we sit together we have to pay... ? anyway hope the flights go down a little for both of us!!

                    Hi.. I am having over 50 people and having a plated dinner ( on the deck )... we are doing a 3 option dinner that is going to go out with the invitations because the hotel needs to know 1 month in advance since normally they only allow one dinner option & i cant have that. If you tell Yamina exactly what you want.. she will work it out for you- it will cost extra however. I am having the most expensive food plan but thats a big deal for us so to us its worth it. and my wedding is in feb. and i have no filled out those forms yet.. i dont think theres any rush with that! lots of luck ;)

                    Random questions (You guys are the best, and your answers are always honest)

                    Has anyone used Juan Navarro as their photographer instead of Adventure photos.  Do the photography prices jump a little if you do?

                     

                    With the plated dinner, was there any issues with having a large party (40-50) ppl?  Yamina recommends a buffet, but im not sure if I want to do that.

                     

                    Sorry for the questions.  I'm freaking out a bit.

                     

                    Thanks everyone!  Happy hump day!!

                      Sorry to hear that it didn't work out so well for you :( and also that the weather isn't behaving right.  Hopefully the sun will come back out and you will be able to have a great ending to your wedding/honeymoon!!  Can't wait to see pictures and hear you're review.  

                       

                      Congrats!
