    We're getting there on the 7th, crazy how time is starting to pick speed. I was going  to do welcome bags but then I wanted so much it seemed like such a project so I totally scratched that idea and just got nice aromatherapy candles I got matches with our name and date and mini wine bottles with personalized labels and calling it a day, I will post a pic soon

My mom wants to start getting supplies, but I'm not sure how much stuff should go in them. Thanks again!!

      We will cross paths! :) I am getting married on Oct 25th but staying two weeks and will be leaving on the 5th at night :) I can come watch your wedding :P LOL

       

      Im doing welcome bags but probably on a smaller scale yet. its the next project to finalize on my list. I have bought a bunch of stuff already but its all smaller. I will do larger welcome bags for the wedding party. I'll keep you posted as i should have this all sorted in the next week or two :)

            Janet1480, you are welcome to stop by the wedding! Hopefully it will all be going well. Another question- are you ladies wearing heels for the ceremony? My mom suggested wearing flats, but I'm only 5'1. I don't want to sink into the sand, but I don't want to fall over in front of my guests. My first fitting is coming up soon, and I need to have my shoes by then!

              katy21500 - I'm short too and I always pictured myself wearing heels at my wedding. But in reality, this is the one day & night that I do not want my feet to hurt. I ended up finding these absolutely beautiful Valentino sandals on ebay (pictured below)! They are soo comfortable but still elegant and even though they don't add height, that jewel will look stunning peeping out from under my dress. So maybe you want to consider something like that? You'll be glad that you chose a flat when you can still dance and party pain-free until all hours of the night!

                  Janet,

                   

                  You are so sweet and I can't put into words how appreciative I am of you sharing your experience. It was such an organic process with you. From the moment you sent me photos of your bracelet and dress I knew exactly what I wanted to design for you.

                    Hey ladies,

                    I read a few negative reviews on Arricefe the preferred photog vendor for PPC.  anyone else use them and have any feedback?  Good or bad?

                    I have emailed Teresa, but you guys are usually faster... is there a fee at PPC to bring in another photographer?

                      Hey hatfiehm, there is a $120 fee to bring in an outside photographer. We've hired Photo Souvenir and are super excited about it :-)

                       

                      Everyone else--have you stayed or had guests stay in regular rooms and were they okay? The reviews are sort of freaking of me out. It sounds like things are okay if we get into the rooms that have been renovated. Does anybody know what buildings to request to get in the good "normal" rooms? I'm worried about our guests quality of stay.....

                       

                      Also, does the resort offer any excursions/tours?

                       

                      Thanks!
