Well I've finally managed to read/scan through all 300 pages of posts and I must send a big thanks to all the past, present, and future brides of GBP. All your comments and information are so helpful and it is greatly appreciated. Everyone's pictures are absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to experience GBP for myself. We were actually considering doing a site visit because we just didn't know what to expect in planning a DW, but we've decided against it; mostly because all the helpful info here and the WC have been fairly quick in getting back to me recently, which helps with peace of mind.
So, our date is booked and confirmed with the resort, met with our TA today who is going to get me pricing as soon as it's available, and our STDs will go out after the holidays. Think I may be a bit ahead of the game because I've already designed all my STD's and invites, have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting for OOT bags/favours and bringing for decorations. I think I'm gonna pass on spending a chunk of money on flowers that you can't bring home or fake ones that no one really keeps and just use fans or parasols for my BM, and I'm going to attempt making shell bouts for the guys; trying to channel my inner DIY creativity...lol Oh, and I got my DRESS...I know it's really early but I could not wait to go shopping for it (I've been waiting 6 yrs for this to come), and I just knew when I put it on, I love it!! So excited
Hope everyone has a upcoming great holiday and happy planning!!!
