Did you have thronged the same sashes from the ceremony for the reception? Where did you end up having the reception? We would like to do the beach but are worried about the sand bugs at night. Who was your WC at the resort? Sorry for so many questions, I must just be getting antsy for April!


    We had the reception right on the beach. We went out a few nights before the ceremony just to see how the weather was at night & to see if there were any bugs. Of the whole week we stayed, the bugs were only bad ONE day on the beach & that was after it had rained ALL day the day before. The cascade pool area is pretty but I had read from a previous post that it can get warmer in this area because the buildings block the breeze. I liked the beach location better because they were able to grill all of our food right there in their barbque area. Instead of the food being brought over & just placed in warmers, it was good & hot when we got served!

     

    Griselda was my coordinator at the resort. Isuyney helped out. Both were super nice & really easy to work with. I took 60 chair sashes down with me & they are still at the resort for anyone who needs them so you may want to ask them about them.

      Thanks for sharing Amy! I will definitely ask them about the sashes when I go down in March. I love the royal blue with the turquoise!

        Also, did they do your hair at the salon? It looks great!

          Yes, they did my hair at the salon (which is in the spa). I was VERY impressed with my hair. I took a few pics with me which was a good thing since the stylist spoke very little English & I speak very little Spanish. I have ALOT of hair. It's really thick & anytime I've ever had it done it seems to take forever & they have to use oodles of bobby pins. Isabel had my hair styled in 20 minutes!! AND I had less than 20 bobby pins supporting it. The gentle breeze we had that evening on the beach couldn't move it either so whatever spray they use is super!

            Cool! I too have A LOT of hair and it is naturally curly (I know it is straight in my pic) so I was hoping that it would turn out well!

             

            Did they wash AND style? Or did you come with your hair already washed? If they do not wash it, then I will need to flat iron it to take out some of the volume...

                Diva,

                 

                I had washed my hair the night before & all they did was style it. I've always been told it's better to do an updo with 'dirty' hair because it stays better. From my own experience, this seems to be true!

                    How did you put your photos in the Word doc? I cannot seem to get it to work by inserting the IMG code from Photobucket...

                     

                    Thanks
