       Thanks Ann!  We had an amazing time!   I did get your text the one time I turned on my phone and really appreciated the sweet message you sent through, so thank you!  Didn't know if I'd see you on here again but wanted to thank you again for the brochures and steel drum music, VERY appreciated!

       

      Eight months already?!  Time flies doesn't it!?  The hubby and I would love to go back to the GBP next year as we loved it so much!

      We're almost 8 months married now and are going back to the resort in October for our first anniversary. I can't wait. I still look back on our pics and love them. Our photographer did a wonderful job. All the reviews about Stacey on this site were great so I'm sure your photos will be fabulous!

        The OOT bags you just pick stuff up along the way... if you look at the main threads to this forum there are amazing ideas on things to put in them, places to buy and people selling off older stuff as well.  Once you know how many people are coming to your wedding you can start gathering everything and putting them all together. 

         

        A friend of ours made our fingerprint tree.. I have the finished copy at home with the fingerprints and signatures but here's what ours looked like bare.  I love it and can't wait to hang it in our house!

          We got our guests Bubba Kegs and then had a friend engrave everyone's names on them.  Everyone loved them as the cups they serve the drinks in are so tiny and these keep your drinks nice and cold.  So if you can work it into your budget, I'm sure everyone would love them!

           



          How many songs do you need for your wedding? Just burn them on a cd and give it to the dj? We are hiring the steel drum band to play as well. Will we need music on a cd if we are having the steel drum band play? We aren't doing a private dinner so can we bring stuff to put on the tables? What do you brides recommend for a guest book? Any recommended websites? My wedding isn't until June 22, 2013 so I have a little over a year, but I just want to be prepared! Any suggestions or websites on what to do for out of town bags? Or should I skip out of town bags? I found someone on etsy who would make custom mugs for the pool for all my guests for around $150. Thanks ladies!

                  Hi Kristo,

                   

                  The Bubba Kegs appear to be a great idea. Did you buy the bubba kegs in bulk?  Where did you find them, and how much did it cost you?
