    I was told there were no centerpieces and the photo they sent me actually has areas whited out on it where they'd taken off things! Lol! Maybe it depends on the package you get?

      What package do you have?  I just have the classic package.

        Here is the basic beach set up picture they sent me with no upgrades.

          Girls we arrived yesterday with an astounding 18 bags between 4 of us!! Ahhhh! Sailed through customs which was AMAZING considering! Arrived at the hotel which is beautiful and has character and was met by our personal concierge and out Wedding Coordinator! Easy peasy! Almost all 55 of my guests are here with the rest coming today and the ones who have been here since Sunday are blown away by the service etc. it was Caribbean buffet night on the beach last night which was a huge party and my guests thought is was "great for us to have put that together for them" ;) and a fabulous platform for our two families to meet for the first time! I'm praying everything else goes just as smoothly! I meet my DJ, coordinator and officiant in a few hours to hand over all my decor and go over details and then I think I can finally "check out" and be on vacation in my brain! Lol! Ill try and let you know how it goes but so far I've been impressed and my guests have been too! In terms of OOT bags I wouldn't bother paying the ridiculous fee for them to deliver them...my FI and I hustled and assembled all 55 as soon as we were in the room and then carried the ones we needed down to the lobby area without telling anyone we'd arrived and the size of the resort is perfect because it just happened that pretty much every guest ended up in the same area at the same time so bam, bags distributed! Lol! Ohhhh I can see why brides and grooms don't give out their room numbers! Everyone wants to know it and we're sticking to our guns and not telling anyone! (Just wondering how long Sir can keep it a secret...lol).

            Thank you so much for the update!! Have a FABULOUS vacation and wedding!  What is the weather like there? I keep looking on weather.com and looks so horrible but I know it's not reliable.  That's a great idea to not give out your room number! So excited to hear more, I leave next Friday!~

                    Thanks y'all! Newest update...don't look at the weather channel! I did that and freaked myself out...I'm still worried about Saturday but the weather has been beautiful since we arrived when according to my phone and the weather channel it's thundering non-stop. The clouds have rolled in but it's almost nice to have a little relief from the sun. It's extremely hot (think two showers or more a day hot) and I'm hoping I get through Saturday without being a dripping mess before some good photos! Lol! We met all the vendors and our coordinator with all our multiple suitcases of decor this morning and although people looked at us like we were insane for lugging it all with us, I can't tell you how amazing our coordinator is!! She saw that I had organized it all for her and we went over every detail so there's no misunderstandings!! Four hours later I can finally breathe and relax and realize I'm on vacation! I think my FI saw the stress leave my shoulders! Now if I can catch up on sleep be good to go!! Lol
