    Oh, I have those!  I just didn't know what they were called.  One of the things I did was go to www.cafepress.com and have t-shirts made for the ladies and hats for the men.  It's a nice little commemorative personalized thing.  Our moms have "Mother of the Bride" and "Mother of the Groom", my best friend has "Bad Ass Maid of Honor", etc.  I'm also including packs of playing cards, sunblock and bug spray.

              Couldnt agree more.   

               

              We went with the Beautiful Beginnings package as there are only 6 of us in total going.  We went for the 2 hour reception.  I haven't heard or booked anything to do with a rehearsal dinner though.  Did you do this through your wedding coordinator.  Who is yours, I'm using Dania.   You say your reception is on the beach, have you picked your ceremony location yet? What are your plans for music?  I'm in two  minds between having the saxophonist for the 2 hour reception or whether to just go with the Ipod option.  Not sure.  

               

              Looking forward to seeing all your pics.  Have you sorted your hen night out yet?  (where abouts in the UK are you?)

                My WC is Ebony and she is Great!!!! I don't get to pick out my reception area or rehearsal dinner area until we get there but it is in my proposal from my WC that the Wedding and reception is on the beach and rehearsal dinner is in the garden area. We went will the Calypso band for the 3 hours.  We also went with getting a dance floor as well as a few other options. I am not in the UK I am In Las Vegas Nevada =)

                  I've heard really good things about Ebony.  Unfortunately Dania isn't quite so good.  I'll have to ask her about the rehearsal dinner.  Does your rehearsal dinner also include a rehearsal of the ceremony too?  They calypso band sounds fantastic.

                    I don't have anything to compare her to, but I don't find Dania always that helpful either.  Very nice, but tried to upsell me constantly.  I never even heard of being able to have a dance floor.  I will have to ask about that.  Did you see the maid of honor shirt? :)

                    Sorry for the confusion about you not being in the UK.

                      Hi Sarah,

                       

                      Had a look at your Maid of Honour T shirt......LOVE IT!!!  

                       

                      Dania, she's certainly a strange one & I know exactly what you mean about her trying to constantly upsell.  She has never told me what's available to us. Everything I've asked for has come off the Sandals website. 

                       

                      So what's your dress like & are you having a Trash the Dress session?  I would really like one, but not sure about finding an off site photographer. 

                       

                      Hope you had a good day.
