How did you get on with the wedding dress? I'll bet it was fantastic. I have mine in 2 weeks time....forever to wait! I've been reading your FB posts & you're certainly working out hard. How you getting on with the veil?
We're staying in one of the rondovals with a butler. Your suite sounds fantastic. You must be so excited now. I'm sure the weather will be fine, but I hear that they talk to you about an alternative just in case it does. Part of me thinks it would be quite romantic to walk down there with big brollies & have the ceremony in the rain. Have you left yourself enough time to get your hair & make up done? I was really worried that they would over run so I've booked mine for 12.00 & our ceremony's at 4pm. I dont want to have any last minute panics / rushes. It's really unfair that the WC dont just give out a brochure with standard prices for everything. I've learned so much from this site about options I didnt even know were available to me. I know it's hard but try not to worry about your photos. I know this is really easy for me to say but I'm sure it'll all turn out just the way you both want it.
Your wedding shower sounds fantastic. Great idea to use the wedding registry. I'm sure you'll have the most fantastic experiences while your there.
The new job's starting to settle down but it's very different to what I'm used to. I'm sure it'll all work out just fine, I'm just quite process driven & my new place....isn't. LOL.

I am so sore today because Bob and I did a 6:00 a.m. bootcamp workout yesterday and OMG!!! LOL but I did love it...he hated it but is willing to give it a shot again I have always enjoyed working out; just stepping it up for Antigua.
Nancy: Welcome to the site and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Some of us are still in the planning process and getting ready and others as you can see have just gotten back and have been so helpful with the information coming back.
Sarah: How are the newly weds doing ??? I read your review on trip advisor. Great review and you have been such a help to us. THANK YOU!!! I got the Butler list and thanks so much! We are going to put our requests in and try to use them to make our stay even more enjoyable but we may get out there and like you said not really need them as much. Your pictures all look so much fun. I have been on trip advisor reading all the reviews and it is so wonderful that almost all of them are so good. Really a lot of info there. Just so exciting.
Alex: I am with you on the whole new job thing. I HATE starting a new job! I hope it calms down for you. You will really be ready for Antigua by then. Your veil sounds beautiful. I am looking for one with some crystals or something on it too to try to catch the sunlight. I'm a romantic too lol. I know you can't wait to get your dress. We are staying in the Mediterranean Honeymoon Sunset Penthouse One Bedroom Oceanview Suite LOL. We have a butler and concierge. I don't know why it would have both??? but it does. Those suites are either located on the 6th floor of the Cypress tower or the 4th floor of the Almond Building. I called Sandals yesterday and put in a request to have our room in the Cypress Tower. On the map it just looks like it is a better view of the ocean and it is higher up too. I also read somewhere that it is $30 to have your dress steamed which isn't bad at all. I have hair and make-up at 1:00 p.m. and then wedding is at 3:00 p.m. Hopefully it won't rain!!! I wonder what they do if it is raining? I wish these WCs were all on the same page because she did not even give me an option of a $375 cd package So worried about the photography but maybe shouldn't over worry about it.
Oh another thing: My friends/family/coworkers are throwing us a big wedding shower the week before we leave, and I found on the Sandals site that you can do a registry with them. So...we set it up where they can buy an excursion or spa packages or put money towards our trip where we can use it for photography or anything we want. I am so excited about that because we have everything and this way our friends/family can get us a gift which we truly will be able to enjoy and have fun with. So, just wanted to pass that on to you guys in case you hadn't seen it.
Hope everyone is doing well! I won't give you our countdown today LOL!!
