                www.discountmugs.com has a lot of cool travel mugs/tumblers that you can add to your welcome bag, and when you buy in bulk, they're only around $3 each!

                      Hi Vicky,

                       

                      OMG!  Yes, it was such a wonderful day.  :)

                       

                      When he proposed in 2008, I knew it was going to take us awhile to save money and stuff so it took us about a 1 year n 1/2 to plan for the big event.  Most of the stuff you see in the photos we bought with us on the plane.  My husband was so upset b/c we had to pay 100 bucks for a little 5 lb box which had our wedding flowers!  I can tell you though, I put most of the stuff together and once we got to the resort a few days earlier we met with Beverly and I explained to her how we wanted everything to look.  Beverly is a busy woman and you'll see when you get there b/c she does so many weddings, but she is quite creative as well.  Plus you'll see a lot of people are getting married there almost every day.  I've noticed a lot of people saying she hasn’t gotten back to quite a few people, that’s probably why.  We went through the same thing.  But she has also been doing this for years.    

                       

                      Yup, the center pieces you see, we brought on our own.  I went with silk flowers, everyone's different I have a thing for yellow roses!  My absolute favorite!!  Check out http://www.thebridesbouquet.com/butterYellowHandtie36.aspx; our photo made the website too!  :-)  Here's a tip...I reused our flowers from the ceremony.  I asked the bridesmaids to drop their flowers in the vases (which I bought from IKEA and they even had fake sand) once they got in to the reception.  That help us save sooo much money!  :)  Call me cheap but hey getting married is expensive and you've gotta find ways to save money!  :)  I end up doing my own programs and I used the craft store Michaels and did my own on the computer.  I can send you the format if you need it.  You can even use what I did as well.  If interested send me your email.  Oh but the dinner programs Beverly did for us, but I would check with her just in case b/c I did my own but then the restaurant changed on us last minute.  That was only b/c the prices we had were for 2009.  Oh and Dolce was amazing too btw!  Everyone loved it! 

                       

                      The stag n doe, I did on my own and just sent an email out to all of our guest to let them know that we were going to have one last get together on Thursday before the big event.  The rehearsal dinner on the other hand was a pain.  I would get with Beverly on that and see if she could book you something for your party. 

                       

                      Please steal them, that's why I shared!  :-)  For the longest time, I kept searching and searching for pictures just anything really so I would know how it all turned out.  I never found anything plus the resort was still sorta new at the time too. 

                       

                      Thanks for the compliment on the dresses.  Check these out, http://astore.amazon.com/debs03-20/detail/B0006VN9EW.  All of my bridesmaids loved how simple they were and it comes with a shawl and straps!! Oh and can't forget the bow on the size and here's the best part the dress is only 50 bucks!  Plus its one of those dresses that fits everyone's body shape! :)

                       

                      Thank you for the compliment on the website too.  :)

                       

                      Any other questions, let me know!  I feel like after this whole experience I feel like an expert!  :-)

                       

                      Hugs,

                      Karen
