    Great ideas! I've been wondering what to do, and now I definitely have some more to think about. So far we've been planning to have some kind of get together at our house the Friday night before we leave Sunday morning, and then a welcome dinner in Cuba but I will definitely be using some of these ideas to make it more fun!

      In the most recent Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine (Destination wedding edition) there are some great ideas for helping your guests get to know one another. One suggestion is to give them these cute little buttons when they check in. The buttons say F.O.B. or F.O.G. (Friend of Bride/Groom) so they can see and talk to other people at the resort that are your guests.

              Wow I'm so glad everyone loves the amazing race idea! I'm getting so excited, i have it all mapped out now, just need to think of some fun challenges.. what i know so far is... we are going to start at the beach gazebo, where we are getting married, and we are going to bury each teams clue and put a flag on the pile so they have to dig to get their clue. and one challenge we are going to make them find 3 important things of the resort...ATM! everyone needs to know where to grab cash for stuff, the medical office, just incase of an emergency, this way we know everyone knows where to go in a hurry, and the restaurant of where we are having our wedding dinner...so they will know where to go for the ceremony and then for the dinner! so then we have one challenge that they will have to find a GM on the beach with 2 kayaks and each bring a beer...they the GM will tell them the challenge...the team of 6 will split in half and race eachother, they will put on the life jacket, get in the kayak, paddle out and back in, chug their beer and take of the life jacket and give it to the next team mate, first team of 3 to finish, wins! lol so fun! we are also having our 33 year old Flower Girl hanging out on an island that is in the middle of one of the pools and they have to bring her a drink and have a drink with her, and then she'll take their team photo underwater! and one of my bridesmaids at the beach bar pit stop will play flip cup with the teams! lol So excited!

              So i need more ideas for fun challenges, but i'm stumped! only have 3 and i need 3 more. hehehe so fun! 3 months today until our wedding!!
