Chris - I'm so glad my posts are helping you!!! that was my whole intent.
I think Lomas/Valeria can help you set up a catamaran trip - we did one through them with Marina Maroma, you'd have to ask about the rum punch though. we got water...and that was it!

Allie... I've read through EVERYTHING you've posted and it was so helpful- thank you so much. Your wedding was beautiful and I'm glad it was everything you imagined.
All along though I've wanted to take the bridal party on one of those snorkeling/rum punch catamaran sailing excursions though as their present... anyone know of anything like that we coudl coordinate?
I can't believe so many of you ladies I started out on here talking to are all done and married- congrats to you all. I can't WAIT for my turn!! xo
It's a wedding, you're allowed to be obsessive and crazy about it! lol Here's what I'd recommend for music playlists along with what we did:
Guest seating - 2 songs - (Iz's mix of Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World, and Going to the Chapel by the Dixie Cups)
Bridal party - 2-4 songs (depending on how big your bridal party is, if any) (none for us)
Groom walk - 1 song (we didn't have one)
Bride walk - 1 song (Silverstring Quartet's Just the Way You are - instrumental of Bruno Mars' song)
Recessional - 1 song (Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder)
I would pick your songs, and create playlists on a separate iPod with just those 5 playlists.
Our WC didn't tell us we could have a separate groom-walk song, so I didn't have one for him. OOPS! And we didn't have a bridal party, so we seated the mothers to the guest seating songs - fortunately they were pretty long. I have all of these songs as mp3 files, and can email them if you want.

So far we only have 12 confirmed guests, so very small and won't need a lot of walking down the aisle music but I don't even know what to use for that.
Thoughts, previous experiences, music used.....anything you have to offer I will take it!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
