    The wedding package includes flowers but I needed more and wanted orchids and lilies which costed ALOT(like double)through the resort so I used Juliana and everything went great. We had our first meeting the first day I arrived and she delivered all the flowers on the day of the wedding around 11:30. The resort had three vases with lilies for me and the pergola post flowers. Everything else was done by Juliana. She is a really nice lady but busy so a little slow at responding sometimes but she came through and I loved the flowers.

    I bought my shoes at aldo and bought two starfish brooches at a kiosk in a mall here in Toronto to bling them up a bit and go with my theme.

      Congrats Lisa! 

       

      Did you guys have a private bar at the reception- do you think its necessary? Also, did you give the DJ a list of events to follow throughout the night?

        We did have a private bar and I couldn't tell you if it was necessary or not but I can tell you that the bartenders and waiters kept finding me and FI and giving us fresh drinks constantly so the service was amazing!

        I had a meeting with the DJ Ivan Gomez and gave him a breakdown of songs, names and timelines for entrances, first dance, parent dances, garter toss and bouquet toss but my uncle was the MC so he did all the announcing.

              I bought the maracas at Amols in Texas and they were great to deal with! Had them shipped to my grandmother in Florida and she brought them down. I used them as our kissing thing and a favor for the guests.

               

              Back went substitutions were allowed, I got two extra hours of videographer as I had my own photographer and then I just paid him for another extra hour cash and cash for the highlight video.

                I have been too exhausted since we got back to post anything yet (although Lisa already posted a pic of me and her :) Thanks sweetie!!), but will try to write my review and all that this weekend. In short, everything was wonderful, the resort is great and Ana Maria was on top of everything!! We had an amazing time!!

                  I'm working on our Ceremony Program and wanted to know if anyone has tips on how exactly the Sand Ceremony works?  I'm just not sure where to insert it in the ceremony or how to word it.  Any info or help is appreciated it!  Thanks!
