    Congrats I'm not too far behind (8-3). I'm sure everything will fine and exceed your expectation. Can't wait to hear your experience.

    Hello ladies! So my wedding is now around the corner in only 12 days!! I'm so stressed out hoping that everything turns out okay. I decided to do a non-denominational legal ceremony on the beach because I didn't want to walk down the aisle and already be married, I was just worried it wouldn't feel the same, but guess what? I still don't have a time for the wedding! I can't create a timeline with my photographer or anyone else for that matter as the judge hasn't confirmed the time. I don't know what to do! I will be sure to write a review and let you ladies know how everything ends up turning out. Wish me luck!

        haha I just noticed that! Compared to MissJali, who's a month before us, I'm definitely a little behind I think! Waiting on the completion of my invites that I am having custom made, hoping to have them sent out in August. I found my gown a couple of weeks ago and now working on the rest of the bridal party. Right now I'm also focusing on figuring out what I can use to make my own centerpieces. Aris sent me samples of what they have as far as centerpieces go, and I was NOT impressed, way over priced. Also hoping to start buying stuff for my OOT bags while all the summery stuff is still available!

         

        How about you?

          Girls who are using the Bar Higuey, are you buying paper lanterns to decorate? Do you think it's necessary or will the basic draping included in the Tangerine package be enough? I'm wondering if I should even waste my money. 

           

          What are you girls doing/have done?

           

           

          Lovely Gemini,

           

          I'm ahead of the game b/c I go back to school in August and will be focused on school (well at least i should) until after the holidays. Leaving me only 3 months to deal with everything plus hopefully we'll find a place to live by Jan lol. I'll be a very busy bee!

            Considering everyone else's experience on this board that I've read about, they're pretty adamant. I have read of at least two brides taking the photographers from their area or friends or flying them out there and including them as guests. If I'm not mistaken, my WC might've mentioned that is a possible loophole. This is the one thing that's really irked me about the whole thing, I hate that Tropical Pictures are the "official photographers". Their style is not bad, but their prices give me a headache every time I think about it. LOL But I suppose they have to cash in somewhere.

              aww, I love how ahead of the game you are! It's really pushing me to get as much stuff done this summer as possible. I'm taking a summer class now but I'm taking full time classes at grad school again in the fall as well so I really should get a move on it, especially with the size of my wedding. I'm just such a procrastinator! 

               

              Not to mention, it's gonna be impossible to get any summery stuff, like for the OOT bags once its over, so it's definitely smart to do it now.

                Just wondering if anyone has experience with anything other than round tables.  With the people who have decided to come I was thinking that one big table (a bunch of rectangular tables pushed together) would work better for our group.  I'm worried that the resort will only want to use round tables as that is what I have seen in all the pictures.  Thanks!

                  Hey LovelyGemini-

                  I am feeling the same way about centerpieces and am currently working on creating my own, that are airplane friendly. If you get a chance, could you email me the samples of what Aris send you on centerpieces? I have not been able to get a copy yet!

                  laurieewald@gmail.com

                   

                  Thanks so much!!

                    Just sent it! My email is efermin88@gmail.com

                     

                    I had hinted at possibly bringing my own materials for the centerpiece during my meeting with Aris a couple weeks ago. I'm just terrified of trying to transport vases or any other glassware. Aris suggested wrapping it all in bubble wrap, but knowing the way luggage is handled at the airport, I'm not sure how comfortable I feel with that idea. I might just do it though, might be worth the risk.
