    so that I can add you to our list! It's fun to keep track of who is coming up next, and then we have all the links to reviews and pictures in one place.
    Hi SunBride,

    Yes, I am reserved at DT. My Date is Oct.9, 2008. I do see that I am on the list. I love your photos and the decor for the gazebo. I'm thinking about doing the same thing but with a sage green colour instead. Not too sure about the starfish though as they will take up a lot of luggage space. They would be nice to have though.

      Oops, didn't realize you were already on the list. There are so many of us it's hard to keep track!

        I'm wondering if they don't want to keep all of the stuff?? You know there has been plenty of brides that have left stuff behind. I made hanging flowers to resemble this
        Click the image to open in full size.
        I plan on leaving it behind and I'm going to tell her to keep it for future brides and refer it to this forum. Oh and I plan on leaving extra white tulle.
        Hopefully they will keep it. I'll let you know what she says when I get back in July = )
        HIGH FIVE, WE'RE MARRIED!!!

          No, the margaritas weren't extra - we just asked if we could do anything in addition to champagne and she said sure, what do you want? We said margaritas and she suggested all the flavors..
          The buffet was $55 per person over 20 people for the gold dinner.

            My pics show the sage green (from Michaels) - the color is really pretty next to the ocean!

                Sorry, let me rephrase. I went down there recently, and amongst my million questions from Jody and myself, I was planning on finding a magic happy closet for us. So, she told me while I was there. Sorry to make it sound like I had actually talked to her recently.

                On another note, as far as her responses. I told her a lot of the girls were worried because they were not hearing back from her for days and sometimes never. She blushed, said she was soooo sorry, but that she was completely swamped right now. She said she has a ton of weddings from now till early June. But, as soon as mid June rolled around, she was going to dedicate herself to responding to everyone ASAP. She has one day a week off right now, and sometimes uses it to go do stuff for the brides. For example, on her day off while I was there, she came back the next day to show me linens in the colors I had asked her for. So, I felt a little bad.

                I hope this helps everyone have a little patience for her and also feel more comfortable that she will get on the ball with all of our stuff as soon as she has some breathing room.

                My suggestion. If you have one major thing you need her to answer, write it as an independent e-mail and put SUPER IMPORTANT or something of the sort under subject. It is fast for her to answer one question, but I know that I usually send her a list of questions and if she only has a minute, she can't address all my concerns, leaves them till later, and then I'm freaking out to not hear back from her.

                Hope this helps.

                    We were taking pictures during the cocktail hour but my family said it was great - per them - the Caribbean trio was really good background music that set the happy Mexican beach wedding mood, the drinks kept coming (we requested that they bring all different flavors of margaritas and they did that and more - they even recognized the father of the groom from previous nights and brought him cans of bud!!), the food was displayed on tables - they said it was a really nice display and everyone ate as soon as one person started, they said it was really tasty!
                    Good to hear positive feedback on the Caribbean trio - still not sure what we'll do for music, but leaning that way.

                      Did anybody use a different DJ than the one that Sandra/Landy provided? Music's important to us, and although the boy was planning on using a DJ that he liked from the Blue Parrot in Playa, he's running into some scheduling challenges. Anyone have a DJ that might even be able to MC the event (not a lot, but just announce us and stuff, announce the dance - our tango - etc.), just run the show a bit more than what I've heard the resort DJ does. Suggestions, let me know...
