Ya I am only selling them after my AHR though. Decorations included at our resort are white tablecloth linens, napkins and chair covers. You have to pay additional for centerpieces. I am dealing with Juliana the outside florist for my flowers, centerpieces and decorations because the resort is too pricey.

Char, that makes me feel much better!! Im sure everyone will be fine, its just so hard to plan for me bc my photographer isnt on the resort, I have to leave to get all of our photos taken.
Laura, absolutely not, you dont want things to be too matchy match, besides you have a bunch of different flowers in your bouquet not just one type of flower. What did you have in mind?

I have no idea what kind of flower I want - i'm sort of playing it by ear to see what's there you know? I've toyed with the idea of getting a turquoise one, but i think the turquoise gerberas are enough, so I'm going to go with white

Lua, I think people would be happy to relax, maybe go back to their room and freshen up and of course have drinks at the bar

Lua, is there a 5pm slot you could switch to? Our ceremony is at 5 and our reception is at 7, and we're just sending all of our guests to a lobby or pool bar while we do pics. There will still be plenty of light for pictures, but it shouldn't be as hot out.

meg - unfortunately i don't think so. i know they only do 3 weddings a day max and i'm pretty sure they space them out by 2hrs... so with one on at 4, i won't be able to do 5...
speaking of.. i just went to the riu site to check avail time on my date and my time is showing avail?!?!?! WTH?!?! stressing a bit right now. i have a confirmation email any everything!!! emailing the WC right now..

Trista's "wedding stuff" weekend plans:
- work on ceremony script (I had to stop last time because I was bawling!!)
- BD shoot on Sunday at 1:00 (ntm I have to find what I'm wearing, oops)
- work on centerpieces (this is an ongoing process it seems)
- work on welcome magazine I'm making (again, ongoing process)
- buy my wedding ring? (maybe)
I think that's about it. Our payments are due in a few weeks so we're also making sure everyone is aware of that... We haven't had much time for wedding stuff this past week because of house shopping. We've seen 8 houses already... 2 we loved but I'm not "sold" yet (haha.. sold...)

Lua- Don't worry! I've been to a wedding at 1:00 and then we got back at 6:00 for the reception. For my friends and I was so much fun and I even had time to change. Your guests are going to be fine at least I would if I had a bar close to me
Kitty- I know how you feel. It's like everything is on me. I wish I could share the wedding decisions with my FI

Laura don't stress. I think it's fine to get married at 2pm and I'm sure your slot hasn't opened up. I didn't want to make our ceremony any later because it will be so hard to wait all day to get married. Everyone else is right, remember you're on a resort with tons of stuff to do in between. Also, you might want to hold off on Michaels trip until tomorrow, there is a 50% off coupon starting Saturday.
To do this weekend:
Shopping for OOT bag items
Paper supplies for programs
Print Place Cards and Assembly some frames
Repair iron ons
Purchase FI & GM ties

WELCOME Primavera! I had some close friends stay at the NOW Jade this summer and loved it. Great choice! Yes, this thread is super active....each time I'm away I have to back up 5 pages to get caught up! We apparently like to gab
Don't stress too much about what you haven't gotten done yet! The beauty of a DW is that it's on YOUR terms.....and the gorgeous scenery lends itself to so much. What size of dress do you wear?
