    Is the $200 set up fee for each table or just overall?  This will make a difference if I bring my own reception decor or use the Colin Cowie ones?

    The new setup fee is $200 per TABLE! Completely outrageous right? It's the ONLY reason why I'm even considering using the Colin Crowe collection. Because after buying my own linens and decorations, paying shipping to get it here, paying airplane fees to get it to Mexico, and THEN the set up fee? Screw that. Might as well just use their stuff and forget about the hassle. *eyeroll*.

      So.......I'm taking a break from packing, and thinking to myself "What do I still need to do?".  I'm pretty sure I have everything all ready to go.  I'm doing my eyebrows, going to the bank, yadda yadda on Monday.  Then, I have this thought--I still haven't heard from Kalena to set up an appointment to meet with her when I get down there!!!  We are leaving WEDNESDAY.  My wedding is in less than 7 days.  So now I'm kind of having a panic attack.  I mean, we're going to be on the plane and flying at 6A on Wednesday.  I know I won't hear from her tomorrow. That leaves 2 days to try to get contact her.  Aaahh!!  In other news, my wrist is still not fully healed from breaking it in February.  They have taken off the cast now, but it's in a splint I'm supposed to keep on for 3 more weeks.  They told me I can take it off occasionally now, so I figure I'll just take it off for the wedding and while I'm down at the pool.  Unfortunately, the cast just came off, so there went my plans to work out and get tan.  That stuff is totally not happening.  :( Luckily, I'm so close to leaving, I kind of don't care anymore.  I just can't wait to go down there.  We are staying for 10 days, and I feel like hubby is going to have to drag me home kicking and screaming.

          I saw the list of linens etc but picking out linens and centerpieces etc still come to about $200/table. So might as well go all out and get super gorgeous fancy with it.

                  Hey ladies- I need some ideas!  My fiance still hasn't got the groomsmen gifts yet!  He is buying them nice leather sandals for the wedding and that is part of their gift, but we can't seem to think of something else!  The groomsmen are our age except my brother who is 15 so barware or a cigar holder is not exactly appropriate for him (I'm sure he wouldn't mine but my parents would hahaha).  So any ideas???

                    Wow, Wow, Wow... I'm so excited for you!  I think your plans for the split is a good one, just be careful.  If I don't get a chance to lob back on before you travel.  I wish you and your guest traveling mercies.  Have a DYNAMIC, BEAUTIFUL AND FAB WEDDING!

                      Hi Ladies-

                      So we had our ceremony on Friday (still down here until Thursday) and what everyone says is true...don't worry about things so much on the front end. From the spa services to the wedding planning to the ceremony, everything has been beyond perfect!

                       

                      I will write a long review when I return..happy planning guys and try to relax, it all works out!
