However, she did switch her reception from Tucanes to the Health Bar as she liked it's location across from the beach better. We did get a geat breeze there that you don't get at Tucanes, and they actually leave 4 or 5 tables with the chairs at the back of the Health Bar. It did keep some people back there rather than dancing, but they seemed to be glad for a place to relax and they probably wouldn't have danced anyway. The Health Bar also has a pool beside it and we had the large flowers from the gazebo cut into 2 pieces and floated in the pool along with some lanterns (Raphaela's idea - the head WC at EDR).
Thank you so much for the reassurance. We are having a reception at the Health Bar as well, so I am now very excited.

I'm so glad that person posted that picture and review on Trip Advisor. It does look nice with all of the foliage.

Thanks again for taking the time to look at it!

Okay, I am obviously in the worrying mood today, but how did everyone do their ceremony music at EDR?

 

I asked this before and some people said ipod and some said cd.

 

If you did cd did you have all of the processional songs on one disk (or playlist) and the recessional song on another?

I was worried about my music, too, but it turned out beautifully. I put my music on a CD and had them in the order that I needed them to be played. I also labelled the CD w/ the song numbers that were to be played at each segment. I just put all of the songs on one CD and the EDR staff knew what to do.

I did my ceremony music on a cd & back up on my ipod. The cd I had the songs in order also a playlist & when I wanted them played for each section of ceremony. They had everything right on & was beautiful.

I was worried about the music too. I gave my 1 CD with clear instructions written on the front to the WC. and I gave my Ipod to my brother and told him to look after the music. I told him if it can play off the ipod just to do that. I felt better that someone I knew was helping to look after it.
I think they played straight from the ipod for the ceremony. At any rate it was totally fine!!

I had 2 songs on my CD (I didn't realize I needed 3), so we used my back-up IPod for the 3rd song. No worries at all!

I had a CD for my ceremony with the songs backed up on my ipod. I wrote out a list of the # of the song and when to play it. I also wrote it on the CD itself with a sharpie. Everything went beautifully and was played when I wanted it.

We had our reception at Tucanes- which was amazing! -but as we walked back to our room, after everything was over- we walked past a reception at the Health Bar-- and it was so so beautiful-- so you won't be disappointed!

We had a CD with 5 songs on it- 2 for while guests were sitting, one for the groom to walk into, one for me to walk into, and one at the end as we kissed and walked back down aisle.

They actually played one of the songs that played while guests were being seated, while we did our finger stamps, and the witnesses were signing the certificate-which I hadn't asked (or known to ask!) -but that actually turned out perfect!

 

They did great with the music- I was worried about that too. Also, they just played straight from the iPOD at the reception- it worked out really well-- you have no worries! :)

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
