    Holy Crap I cannot believe it's already my turn to do this. We leave on friday morning at 5:15 am in an excursion limo with 43 friends and family to Jamaica!!!!!

    Thank you to everyone on this forum. With the amount of info (or lack of info) you get from the resorts and the slow emails, I think I would have gone crazy planning a DW without you guys!! I would also like to thank whoever I "borrowed" templates from (I definitely can't remember right now haha) but it was greatly appreciated. I can't wait to be laying on a beach drinking rum !!!

    My Dress:

    I bought a Pronovias Ladera dress in Ivory (probably a little to fancy for the beach) haha I'm realizing this 3 days before I leave..Nice! Oh well I LOVE it so I'm going to rock it!

      Bridal Hair:

      So I have SUPER curly (not nice curly, frizzy curly hair) I can straighten it and it looks good here, but in humidity ..not a freaking chance! Sooo to cut down on wedding day stress I decided I will "tame" my hair by pinning it all back and hairspray the crap out of it and let extensions do the work! I'll let you girls know how that turns out :)

      The Cake:

      We'll see how well this gets re-created. I ordered it from Sheila's bakery. The bottom layer will be vanilla with strawberry filling and the top will be chocolate. It will only be 2 layers and no flowers on top.

      Flowers:

      Ive ordered my flowers from Tai Flora. I can't copy the picture due to copyright issues but my 3 bridesmaids are getting long stemmed white calla lilies and I am having the same but with a few orchids mixed in. I'm also getting white paper lanterns to hang at the poolside reception from them, an isle runner and rose petals. The total for all of this was $960.00

      Reception DIY stuff:

      Starfish name tags: These will be at each persons place setting at the table (I purchased these off Etsy)

            First off, let me say that your dress is FAB! (I'm a Pronovias bride too great taste!) and not too fancy- it is one of the only times that we will be able to wear something like this! Second, I love the enthusiasm of your BM. You're going to have a great time. Last, as always, post more pics, and best of luck1

            OH and can you tell me where you got your scatter jewels!? I think I spent too much for too little quantity.... Thanks!

                Looks great! Pronovias for myself as well - too fancy but I don't care! I think that it's more fun that way. Super cute BM dress!

                  I absolutely LOVE your dress. I'm having a hard time finding something like it that flatters my body type.

                  Just a note: On your bar list, I think you meant "every" instead of "ever".

                  Awesome job!
