    ughhhhh looks like ernesto is coming just in time for the wedding on tuesday night :'(

    We are here now and they are saying it will be a storm watch. I will be writing a review soon, prob after I get home, but we had bad wind at our reception and asked to be moved in the middle of the 2nd course. They moved us to thes seaside grill in a flash. I was bummed for a minute but then realized it was better for our guests and we had already gotten the dances and everything our of the way

      Hey Ladies, I leave in 5 days and I am just wondering how did everyone pay for their wedding? Should we get travelers checks? Did you just charge it? Also my wedding coordinator has not answered my emails in weeks so I am really going down there without knowing much details about the big day! its so frustrating!

      We ended up using a debit card. We had our mtg with Lorena and paid for half that day and half the next day. I had poor communication the week before my wedding too, but I just kept myself organized with lots of spreadsheet and printed out every single thing I could (copy of wedding package, homeymoon package, emails, etc)and brought it with me. Just like everyone says, you are in good hands and they go over every detail with you when you arrive :)

        Hey ladies, We are still here honeymooning, so when I get back to CA, I will write out something about our trip for sure. Long story short, everything was and is great. Our guests are thanking US for doing this. One snafoo-We did have ridiculous wind during our reception. They sky turned black. The staff assured us it wouldn't rain, but I looked around army guests and half of them had their sunglasses on because the sand was everywhere-in their eyes and food. We felt bad and couldnt bear to have our guests sit there like that, esp our older guests So we asked Jorge (Lorena's helper) what we could do. They moved ius to the Seasode Grill within minutes. So don't panic, they always have a back up plan ready for you. Whether it is what you envisioned or not, it will be top notch.

          If it is an extraordinarily hot day, I'd move the reception to the pool deck.  The Seaside Grill was beautiful but there was NO BREEZE that day at all!  People were soaked with sweat haha.  We all just kind of resigned ourselves to it and had a blast anyway.  But no recommendations, they will make everything perfect!!  I don't know the table sizes because I didn't bring linens, but we had tables of 6.

              I am waiting for my wedding high light video from Mike Cantarell Films!  I am so so so excited to see it!!  My dad said to him, "I've seen your work, it's fabulous!" and he said "This will be the best one yet."  I am waiting and trying to hold myself over with photos!  I wish I could go back to that day because it seriously was the best day of my life!!

                    Hello ladies!

                     

                    I'm curious... How many Save the Dates/Invitations dd you all send out? And how many of your guests actually booked and/or attended your wedding? My goal was to have a small intimate wedding but my mother is forcing me to send out STDs all of the "family". My guest list is now over 100 but I would really like to have no more than 50 people at our wedding. I 'm getting really nervous now. Is it bad to hope that not all of my guests will actually attend???
