      great review, Marie!! Looks like you had an amazing time! Congrats!!
      Question for you, you mentioned you brought the iPod for your reception, where did you plug in the docking station?

          Sweetluna....about the docking station.....it plugged in somewhere around the side of the bar...I honestly dont know, Chandlyn took care of all that...all i done was tell her at the meeting that we had an ipod and docking station. She suggested renting speakers because the entertainment up above is so loud (TRUE....DEF NEEDS SOME SOUND SYSTEM) Sooo....she met us there after the meal, actually she met our friends there to ensure the plug ins were correct...for some reason, our ipod was really crackly...she kept telling me not to worry...next thing knew I saw her coming down over the stairs with something, it was her own sound sytem, a different one.....not quite as loud as the original speakers, but it done fine......at this point we didnt use the docking station, we used whatever it was she had..I honestly cant remember that part.....but we plugged our ipod into her set up...................she had no ide why the speakers were crackling,......so i cant explain that part, but either way-as long as you have your ipod and docking station....thats all you should need..............she came to check on during dinner, and my husband got up to chat with her, she asked for our ipod n stuff, so he went to the room and brought it down with her, to set it up........she took care of the rest and made sure we got music.......

            .....Im not sure how clear that post was lol......it was very odd we had trouble with our ipod originally...you shouldnt bring any cords or hookups or anything, just the ipod and docking station, we have NO idea what went on with ours originally...she said there must have been something wrong with the speakers (our luck).....she had it all plugged in and set up on the side.......once she realized the set up sucked...lol (cause of the crackling) she used another system, where we didnt need the docking station...just like plugging it into the car....lol....it wasnt QUITE as loud as the original speakers we had rented, but it was fine......

                Thats a really great and detailed review. Thanks for all of the tips and info, its really helpful as I am beginning to stress about small details myself.

                  Ohhh JennandMike08...PLEASE Dont stress over the small dets.....I know I did, and if I could go back Id change a few things, that would be one of them........and I would have tried to let the feeling go of me trying to control everything! lol

                  Little stuff tho, like decor for the dinner table...I had white lanterns, and brow candle holders, the fake tea lights, flowers...I ordered some from online.....picked out matching stuff at stores, the worried about putting the stuff in other peoples luggage, then trying to tr4ack it all down once we were there, then getting it to Chandlyn, it was the little stuff that upset me lol..and I hated wasting my time once I was there....

                  As for controlling things, I wanted every day planned out..spend this day here, this one with these people....spend less time in the room, eat here, then there......I spent so much time worrying about everyone and palnning the next day....I ruined it for myself!!!

                  I think after planning these weddings and vacations for so long in advance, that we just want everything to go a certain way-and when it doesnt, we get upset,...thats how I was! And wish I hadnt been!

                  So, thats my advice....lol
