    Hey! I love the way your reception dinner was setup! How much did it cost p/p? are the decorations such as the lanterns included or did you get them also from tai flora? approx how much does tai flora charge for the centrepeices?

      Can anyone who recently got married at the ROR tell me how long it is taking to get your marriage certificate in the mail? I have heard several weeks to 5 months. Keisha told me 8 weeks but was just wondering if that was accurate. Also does anyone know if you can expedite the service? appreciate any help with this?

      One other question..for those of you that did a sand ceremony- did you play a song during that time. I'm trying to get all our music organized and wasnt sure if I should put a song in there. DId you pretty much do some preceremony songs, a song with me walking up the aisle and then a recessional song at the end? or did you somehow incorporate others and where? 

      THanks girls.

        You get a temporary certificate that you sign on the day to take home, and it took 8 weeks exactly to get our official certificate. It was shipped by DHL.

          We did preceremony songs but not enough of them.  Allow for 30 min of pre-music.  The guys playing the music filled in with stuff they had which was just fine.  We had a song for my kids to walk to but we ended up not recognizing it when it started so they didn't go.  So we had them skip it and walk to my song which was way long enough for all of us.  They don't play music during the sand ceremony as the minister is speaking.  They did one for our certificate signing and then our exit. 

          We were married 4/16 and still haven't received our official certificate.

            Can someone tell me if there is an ipod dock at the plantation that can be used to play dinner music? We wanted to just make a playlist and listen to that during dinner. Does the DJ also have ipod dock of some sort that we can put requested music onto an ipod playlist?

            Thanks girls.

              We had the semi-private dinner and no music was allowed during that, and yes the dj has ipod dock

                  hi girls!!!!

                   

                  Sorry ive been MIA for a month, but its been crazy around here!!! working, raising a toddler, planning a destination wedding, attending grad school and planning an AHR is no easy feat!!!!!!!

                   

                  I'll try to start throwing together a review....

                   

                  in the meantime, my fb is www.facebook.com/misti.hagemann.  You can go there for pics.  I wont be on here too much so if you have any q's email me at mistinicole@yahoo.com.  I prob wont have TOO MANY answers since I went basically free all the way, but I'll answer what I can.

                   

                  Oh! and for those of you looking for a photographer, i researched photographers out there for HOURS and DAYS but couldn't afford anyone I really liked.  it ended up being cheaper for me to fly a internationally acclaimed photographer out there (www.erickpozos.com, www.erickpozosblog.com) to take 2 days of pics than their ridiculous prices.  He's absolutely amazing.  ....and as sweet and humble as it gets.  seriously.  www.facebook.com/erickpozos

                   

                   

                  Best wishes... and DONT WORRYYYYY!

                   

                  There was only 3 emails between the WC and I before I got there (really, she only answered ONE with my question list).  I just picked from a picture book upon arrival and everything was (almost) perfect!!!!!!

                   

                  Ok, now onto my review....

                   

                  Cheers!

                    The WC will contact you via email approximately 2 months before your date.  You can ask her any questions you want.  All of mine were answered and I kept a friendly stream going with her.  We went with the free wedding and didn't upgrade anything so it was very simple, as a DW should be.
