    I actually just bought a bunch of cala lilies at Michael's because they were 40% off and looked real. I am hoping this will not be an issue because I have not consulted with the wedding planner.

     

    Luckily, I have a wedding decorator who is a friend of the family that will make them into bouquets.

     

    How many were you using per bouquet?

        Also- I finished my survival kits to put in my OOT bags.  This is a big CHECK! Off the list.  For the new BDW brides out there I have a word of advice- if you are planning on doing these or other OOT bag ideas buy things as you find them and don't wait to start stocking up once you figure out your game plan.  I started buying things last fall which helped the $$ situation now.

        My favorite thing in the kits?  Caribbean Escape Antibac from B&BW.  How perfect!! (They have that new collection of lotions that are all destination themed- unfortunately no caribbean- I think they're Bali, Rio and something else.  I guess we'll have to go to Brazil for wedding renewals sometime LOL!!)

         

         

        What a great idea. : )

          I haven't talked to my coordinator Lily for a long time.  I was just contacted by Joannis who says she is my new planner and that she would honor the $65 set up fee.

          Quote: "If you have been told about this $65 set up fee by a planner or at the resort, it will be honored."

           

          Hope that helps!!

            Joannis also said that a second dinner reservation at a restaurant would cost the same as a private function...

                  Praying for a speedy recovery and healing.  I'm with you. Wedding can wait, Mom's can't!!!!  Blessings to you and your family.

                  Well my wedding plans are being put on hold for a little while. My momma passed out yesterday (reasons still to be determined) and fell flat on her face. She woke up in a pool of blood. After several hours of tests, x-rays and ct scans there are no broken bones (we were extremely concerned about her nose) and just some minor whiplash from where her head bounced on the floor. Her face is badly bruised and she has a "razzberry" under her left eye from where she slid across the tile. Thank God there was nothing worse. But anyways I'm putting things on hold until after I get back from going home on checking on her. She's going to be having some test done on her heart to see if it was the culprit. She didn't experience any dizziness or wasn't light headed prior to passing out. So until I get her all fixed up I'm going to put things on hold for a little while......wedding can wait my momma's health is way more important! Can't have a wedding if she's not there. :)

                   

                  For the ladies that have been dealing with the set up fees.......do any of you have paperwork that states the $65 for the set up? I think our contract stated that. If so I'll be fighting for that if we decided to have more than the cocktail hour.

                   

                  Emma - you should qualify for unlimited private events since you already have 91 nights. You should be able to find it under the wedding amenities section on the website. I just looked it up. The only thing that is specified now compared to when the rest of us booked our weddings is the time allotted for each day. They only let you have 3 hours a day for events = one hour cocktail hour and a 2 hour dinner. You and your hubby will get 7 free nights as well. Congrats to you!!! I know we are all hoping for the same kind of turn out with our guest.

                   

                  Happy planning ladies!! I'm still going to be checking in on the site to keep up with everyone!

                      So sorry :( I agree as well though. Mom's health is way too important.
