        The great thing about destination weddings is you can do as little or as much as you want!! Most of my projects are just things I"m working on to personalize my wedding. If we were to leave tomorrow, without any of those extra projects, I'm sure my wedding would still be amazing!


        Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

          Aww I think you are so right!  Regardless of how much or how little you do, the backdrop and the people make it all!  I love planning, so that's why I am so ahead of the game and doing so much, but I wouldn't trade my DW for the world because of the amount of pressure/stress I DONT have!

              Where are you having your cocktail party at?  I am having mine at the Pandero Terrace and ordered orange and white paper lanterns to hang from it.

                  Hey Jess,

                   

                  I am having mine at the Maracas terrace.  Wilma did tell me that there is places to hang paper lanterns there so I may do that.

                    I'm sorry, I wish I had advice for any of those things, but my resort has a Videographer, I'm not having a DJ, my sister-in-law is doing my hair and makeup and I am doing my own flowers.  Have you thought about DIY flowers?  They were important for me because I am also having an AHR when I get home and I wasn't interested in paying for real flowers twice  :oP

                     

                    I heard there is a guy named Fernando that is amazing at hair and makeup!  Search the forum for him and you'll get some good info (start out by just searching "Fernando".

                     

                    When are you going on a site visit!?  I would definitely just take the time to look around the whole resort and take plenty of pictures of the different location options.  Definitely plan a meeting with the WC, she will be able to tell you all of the decisions you will have to make!

                      Ok! I never took the time to really look into any of the other private event locations because it was like I saw the setup for the Pandero Terrace from another bride and I knew I wanted mine there!  Are you doing any kind of music for it??  I'm flip flopping with the idea of hiring the mexican trio for mine.  I'm going to ask the girls on the ASP forum their opinion on if its worth it money-wise.
