    Nikki - somehow you've been the only recent bride who's been able to accomplish that.

    It's usually set the day after your arrival. We got in Wednesday morning, and met with the onsite WC at 1pm on Thursday.

      For those of you who did the ipod wedding music...when did the WC take your ipod?  We're going to try and use an ipod and have backup music on my iphone, but I don't want my iphone taken from the date we have our meeting with the WC to our wedding date.  I can't NOT have my phone with me!  HAHA.  Also...using my iphone I have the "myweddingdj" app downloaded, but am unable to figure out if that can be used on an ipod.  If anyone knows please help!  Thanks so much ladies!

      do you mean for the ceremony? or for the reception?

       

      for the ceremony, my husband brought that iPod with him to the ceremony (per our WC's instructions). they gave it back to him immediately after the ceremony, so it wasn't in their hands long.

       

      We didn't use it for the reception, but I'd guess the WC would take it from the ceremony to the reception site.

       

      you should be able to use that app on the iPod as well as the iPhone - usually those are the same apps (iPad has different apps due to the screen size).

      Gail - here are the starfish & shells I have. I have 20 white starfish of various sizes, 1 and a half (gallon zip loc) bags of medium shells, and 1 quart bag of the small shells (3/4 full). I will sell them all for $20 + shipping. I won't post them on my sale thread yet - please let me know if you're interested. 

       



      Hey Allie!

       

      Congrats on everything, it looks like and sounds like everything went REALLY well. I'm so glad to hear that!!

      I have a couple of questions for you.....

       

      1. Where did you get the chair sashes for cheap? I figure if I have to pay $5 per person for them to decorate I can bring what I want!

      2. Is this what you paid $5 per person for them to set up for you?

      3. Did you sell your starfish/shells/etc yet? I'm interested in seeing what shells you are selling.

       

      I'm so happy for you!!!!

      Also, someone asked how many lanterns - I had a total of 52 paper lanterns around Tucanes. Yes, excessive! lol

        I've seen a lot of people comment on how happy they were with the spa for hair appointments. My question is, has anyone been for makeup as well, and what did they think? I'm pretty inept when it comes to that type of stuff, so I was planning on getting mine done but wanted some feedback before making appointments.

         

        Also, did anyone go ahead with hair and/or makepu trials prior? Was it worth it? Anyone who didn't but wish they had? Thanks!

        I only had my hair done there, and I did a rehearsal. If I was going to do make up also, I think I would skip the hair rehearsal (to save $$). My hair rehearsal went great, and she did exactly what I wanted - a low up-do, off to the side. The only thing I asked her to change for the wedding day was to hide my headband a little more (it had ribbon-covered parts, and bling-covered parts, I only wanted the bling to show). On the day of, she did my hair in the middle, vs. off to the side like she did for my rehearsal. It looked gorgeous, and we were out of time so I didn't have her redo it. The rehearsal was for my own peace of mind - knowing what I do now, I'm not sure I'd do a rehearsal again. But then, I am a control freak, so maybe I would!

         

        If you have pictures of what you want for your hair & make up, I'm pretty sure they replicate both perfectly.

          Allie, what did everyone do about the time, did people use their phones, were their clocks? I'm remembering when I was on a cruise, it was so important to always have a watch since we couldn't use our phones.  Did you and your guests have this issue or did you use your phone? Also, while I'm asking, is there WiFi that you connected to? Just curious...

          Most people used their phones for the time. There are clocks in the rooms - ours was set at the wrong time and we never managed to figure out how to correct it (in 10 days! HA). We would also ask the bartenders what time it was fairly often... most times they would tell us the truth
