Thanks ladies for the information about the sound system.  That's a load off my mind.  My fiance' and are big music lovers and I would hate to have to bring my little portable ippd player to use for the wedding & reception and have it barely audible over other resort noise or sound like crap.  I too would be interested if they charge to use the sound system...sounds like they nickle & dime ya for everything else ; ).  I thought about Canon in D as I really like that song but you hear it at every single wedding so I might decide to go with something more tropical and less traditional.

 

Stella - I saw that too.  I can't remember who is next on the wedding list but I sure hope there are no weddings planned during this period.  How awful.  I wonder how bad the damage was? 

 

Thanks for letting us know about the Brilliant virus.  I was one of the unlucky ones who got the virus from their site last time and I had to reinstall my IE as a result and lost all of my wedding planning favorite sites I had saved.....grrrr.  Not happy about all the time I spent bookmarking pages and now they are all gone.  I hope you didn't get the virus.

Our wedding is set for 9/24, 30 days---so hopefully the 15 days of being closed and cleaning up willl be enough!  Two years in the making, I can't imagine if we can't go.

Stella, I was just reading some of your posts.  How many guests did you have?  I'm having 22 (including us) an I've seen mixed reviews about the WC getting reservations at restaurants. I want to have  a Welcome Dinner.  We are having an 11am ceremony with a buffet lunch--low key and then everyone has the day to relax and enjoy!

Hi,

 

Island is fine, some flooding in low lying areas and tree branches down etc, but no structural damage anywhere etc and more importantly no loss of life.  Airport is open, and flights are coming in and most of the island has power.  The resorts and Grace Bay area had power the whole time in most places.  Resorts and restaurants are open for business, except for Beaches which has closed for a few weeks.  There are no reports of damage there, but as in years past whenever we have any kind of storm in August or September, Beaches will shut for a few weeks after, I would check with them to keep updated if your wedding is in September as we have heard conflicting reports on their reopen date.  

 

Our office and staff and their homes are all fine...all are feeling a bit soggy but drying out as the sun is shining again.  Everyone was unpacking boxes/computers etc yesterday and pulling down all of the hurricane shutters and starting to sort through the 3-4 days of email that has accumulated.  Andy was on the phone with West Host our server for a while again yesterday as soon as he heard about the virus again.  We had been assured the blog had been secured but we are waiting to find out what happened again.  This is the current update posted on the situation: 

 

Weâ€ve just had a report of another virus on the blog. If you have uptodate virus software you will be fine, but if you get any messages asking to update your adobe software or such, do not click on them ! For now please be very careful – I have the web team working on this again to remove the malicious code…..thanks for your patience.

 

We haven't had any problems with it affecting Macs and currently only one report but we are taking it very seriously (Andy is not happy, hurricane and virus not a great combination LOL).  You can check us out on FB in the meantime if you want to see some photos.

 

Thanks for all of the messages and patience!  But for anyone worrying...island is open for business, water is blue and sun is shining!!!

Sorry - I thought this would attatch to the questions about the stereo equipment/ipod dock, but it doesn't look like it did!  So to be more specific, there was no cost for speakers, ipod dock etc for the ceremony, but it was $125 per hour for the reception.  Hope that helps!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
