By the way any of you ladies planning on adding pashminas to your OOT bags? The reason I ask is I found this wholesaler in NYC and the more I order the better the price... let me know if you're interested!

Can any of you recommend a good TA? It's hard to just randomly pick someone! I don't know if I am too early since I am just under a year, but I figured I have to start somewhere. When is the best time to set up a group?

Christi:Welcome! Congrats! So great to have another NOW bride! I would give you my TA's info, but right now I am not the most pleased with her. I am still waiting on a contract and it has been several weeks. She keeps saying it is the resort's fault, but I am starting not to believe that based on what the other girls are saying. I would google destination wedding TA's in your area. I have heard it is much better to have someone who specializes in DW. Good luck!
JB:I really love that new dress for your BM's! Go with that one for sure, it is figure flattering and I am all about the one shoulder. I am actually going to Vegas in a couple of weeks and am thinking about getting it for myself, ha ha! I own nothing that is "Vegas appropriate". Yeah, I have been wondering about my contract too. If I don't have it by next week I will get a new TA. She did send me an email today saying that I shouldn't worry about the resort, she said she has never had a NOW customer complain and she has sent many people to these resorts. That did help me. As for the OOT bags, can you try for 8 pink and 7 green. If not any mix is fine. Thanks again. Oh, the map is great, keep it the way it is. Much easier than numbers with a legend.
Where are you ladies having your receptions and cocktail hours? I have asked what the options are but have not gotten a response. I don't even know what the options are! I also want to know about the options for photo person and DJ. I am not planning on using either, it would be soooo nice if I could change it up for better food!

Oh, and one more thing...I bought some supplies for another DIY project tonight. Hobby lobby had their floral stuff half off, I bought a bunch of hyrdrangias to make pomander balls for the isle decor. I am going to hang them off the chairs. In the meantime I am going to hang them in our bedroom as the colors will work well! Here is my inspiration, I will post a pic when done. This weekend is finishing STD's, so I may get to them next weekend.

VERY NICE Acutie, love the idea! You must share pics of the finished product! I'll see about getting 8 pink and 7 green, will update you tomorrow when I get them

Oh and as far cocktail and reception I'm hoping to get the Castaways for both. It's open air which is what I want without being "on sand" the whole time.

Welcome Christi! So excited to have another NOW Bride. Happy Planning!
Christi I am using Destination Weddings. The lady I am using is AWESOME~ Let me know and I can give you her info if you want.
AcutieRN, I am wondering the same thing about the DJ and Photographer I am thinking about downgrading the package and hiring DJ Mannia and HDC photographer. I don't know what to do yet because if I do downgrade then I loose the chair upgrade but maybe I will just splurge on the tiffany chairs??
AcutieRN, I love the idea, must share the pics when done
Also as far as the cocktail hr, I have no idea yet but for the Reception definitely the Castaway Restaurant
