    We are 28 days from the wedding...doing flowers from the resort florist. We are taking lanterns and wooden letters, so we don't need a lot of flowers and I don't want to have to meet anyone at the gate to pick them up! I guess flowers were the one thing I was willing to pay a little more for. I am really upset about the cost of the sound system...The wedding book said $150.00, but they e-mailed me and said that was per hour! I think I am just going to go buy a Bose sound system and take it with us...one more thing to pack...

      Just wondered if anyone has used DJ Movil? We are getting married in January 2015 and trying to decide between the DJ the resort provides or an outside DJ. Any recommendations?

      We also thought that the cost for the sound system was a bit ridiculous.  The speakers are included for your ceremony.  We then had the guitarist (included in our divine package) play during our cocktail hour - he has his own sound system.  We purchased a portable battery powered speaker system from costco.  We love it as it also runs on bluetooth.  It was small enough to fit in our carry on luggage and we have used it several times since the wedding.  I think it cost us 120-130$ - less than one hour of speaker rental at NS.

      You must be getting really excited!  I am doing my own silk flowers for the bouquets and we are taking them with us.  I am too much of a control freak to trust a florist I have never met :)  But we are using the resort florist for a couple centerpieces (the one included in the package and one extra)  the design I want for those is extremely simple.

       

      My invitations came in the other day and they look great :)  I'm still trying to decide the best time to send them though, how far in advance do everyone send theirs?

      I am also getting married in January and hired Disco Movil. They were the best priced when I did all my comparisons.

      I have 5 weeks! I have 42 people including us.  im stressing a lot now. mainly about music...im using DJ Mannia bc they had great reviews on here,but im so nervous trusting they have all the music I want..and its a lot of work to back up all your own music,especially when your paying them..

      im using Floreria Riviera for flowers. a lot of women on here have used them so it felt safe .Alina is fast to respond and answered all my questions. cheaper too.

      I sent out my invites in January. so 11 months in advance. I had a room block and that expired in june.but not everyone booked on the room block.i had people book this week still 5 weeks out. I know everythings gonna go well but I have SO MUCH on my mind now that im 39 days out.

        I bought the harmon/kardon bluetooth sound system to take! It was expensive, but I'll get to keep it after and it sounds amazing! We are 20 days from leaving! We just heard back that we were comped 1730.00 toward rooms! More than expected because his family was giving the TA grief and I told them to book with whoever they wanted!

        Hi brides! Happy Oct 1st!! 122 days until my wedding day! I was wondering if you are having the resort do your makeup, do you know if they use airbrush makeup or what kind of makeup are they using?
