I feel so out of the loop!!! I have been sick for the past couple days and I didn't even have the energy to check this site! (GASP!!!) I hope everyone is doing well and is having a good week. As for me, we now have 19 people plus FI and booked and are at 52 nights! There are a few more people that have said they are coming and want to spend the week there, which would put us at 73 nights! If that miraculously happens FI and I will purchase the rest of the nights, as it's worth is money wise! So, here's hoping! But regardless, FI and I are thrilled that our immediate families and the groomsman have booked.
Also, I think we finally have our locations. We got Tucan Gazebo for the ceremony, Tucan garden for cocktail hour and tucan terrace for wedding reception. I really wanted Venando Terrace for the reception, but of course it's taken. But it's all good, everything will just be really close for our guests!!!
So below I am going to respond to you guys!!! HUGS!
Thinking about you, but I have more to say below!!!

Happy Hump Day Ladies,
Well today unlike many others I did not wake up early to print. I just didnt' have it in me espeically since FI and I had a big disagreement over the Christmas gift that he is getting for his daughter that I don't think is necessary or warranted, especially since she still don't have nor nowhere in the process of getting her passport. So to me the cost of the gift simply screams "okay no matter the fact that you are giving me your

Thanks again Chelsea!!!!
I would like to share my WONDERFUL news with you.
I havenâ€™t been on the forum for the last few months because of my Grandson who is a 1yr old. At one of his routine check up he was sleep and one of the doctorâ€™s notice his breathing was irregular, so his pediatrician examine him asked his mother & my son tons of question. From that they had him schedule a sleep study for the next evening. They had the study done, the next morning they were told that the baby needed emergency surgery to have his tonsils removed because they are too large and was affect his breathing while he slept. Ok so I get a frantic call from son saying I need to come to hospital now!!!!! Get to the hospital and the other shoe drops; his white blood cell count is high very, so they explain before his surgery they want to do a CAT scan to make sure there is nothing else going on... The result showed a grapes size growth on his tonsil. My heart drop for my son and his girlfriend, so my grandson had biopsy done then the surgery was delayed until the result came back. So the next 24 hours were long but the hospital staff was great because Kaseem had visitor round the clock to that his parents wouldnâ€™t get overwhelmed... So the results came back NO CANCER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There was not at dry eye in the room!!!!!!!!!! Kaseem had surgery which was a success!!!!
He went back today for his follow-up check and received clean bill of health!!!!!!!!!!!
I AM THE HAPPIEST GRANDMA ON EARTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU LADIES FOR LETTING ME SHARE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you starting the cocktail hour later? I ask, because of pictures. Will you and FI take pictures after the ceremony during cocktail hour? I assume you thought of this. But, I think I would want to do the 1st dance first, so when you walk in everyone is all there and paying attention. Then I think you should do speeches a few minutes afterward.
What I would do, and this is just my opinion and it's all personal preference. I would
1. Come into cocktail hour and have our first dance right after we enter
2. I would wait on toasts and do them at dinner.
But I like to wait to for things like that, because for me, it keeps the momentum and fun coming.

So, we are just going to have a cocktail hour after the wedding and then have a reception dinner at one of the restaurants. For the cocktail hour, I'm planning to do the toasts and the first dance. When do you think I should do these?
I was thinking to let people grab food and drinks and then 20 minutes in, do the toasts. Then, 45 minutes in, do the first dance.
We'll do the cake cutting after dinner at the restaurant.
Thoughts? Comments? Ideas? Thanks!!
