That's what I did also (chocolate and vanilla), after they told me not to choose the tres leche. Our dates are both in August and I have way more stuff I haven't done yet . . . don't stress. It will get done and it will be fab!

Anyone have any reviews on spa services (massages, facials)?

 

I'm thinking of booking a facial and massage for the morning of the wedding. Maybe not the facial in case they jack my face up, but definitely a nice 80 minute stress reliever massage.

Book your massages as early as possible.

I tried to book mine for my wedding day 3 weeks out and they didnt have the time available..

For anyone that had a legal ceremony or will have one, does your state require you to file your marriage license? I called my local county today (in Virginia) and they don't require you to file your certificate. They said it just needs to be translated to English and once you have your certificate/ceremony you're considered legally married. So if you don't file your marriage cert, how do they know you're legally married? Especially when it comes time to file taxes. I'm confused...

Nicole, 

 

I put my music is the EXACT order I wanted it to be played and the songs that were key songs I labeled FIRST DANCE, GARTER TOSS, ect... so they'd know to announce something. The IPOD setup worked out perfectly. I did 2 speakers as well and definitely recommend that. I wouldn't have done anything differently. I was really nervous about this because I wanted the reception to be a party, but it was!!! Everyone was on the dance floor! 

 

My wedding was originally at 6 on the sky wedding deck, but there was another event scheduled on one of the sky terraces scheduled at 6. They suggested I move my location. I kinda threw a fit about this because I insisted they guarantee the sky wedding deck before I would sign my contract - so they suggested moving the ceremony to 5:30. It was fine by me. We had enough light for pictures, but it got a little rushed at the end. That wouldnt have happened if it wouldnt have taken SO LONG to bustle my dress - we had issues with that!! I had my stepdad get ordained online so that he could perform our ceremony so we wrote that together. It definitely was doing within 30 minutes! I didnt want some long ceremony - to me, everyone wants to get to the party! 

 

Yes, I carried my wedding dress on the plane. They have a closet right when you walk into the plane, that wasn't a problem at all. He carried his suit too! It was linen so it was going to wrinkle like crazy in the suitcase. 

 

I did welcome bags with - full size IBpro bottles, aloe lotion, antacids, koozies, sunglasses and welcome letter. My "wedding favor" was glow necklaces and bracelets. They were really fun to have on the beach and dance floor. I ordered 150 necklaces and 100 bracelets for my 60 guests so everyone had a few. I got them on ebay with free shipping for like 60 and it was well worth it! I didn't bring a vase or anything for them, but I gave them to my WC before the big day and he had them set up in vases for me! It was perfect!

 

I did not do a themed package, I just did complimentary. I didn't use Ocean Photo either,  I brought a photographer from home. We went down on Tues and he arrive Thurs. That way he got some photos Thursday (welcome dinner), Friday (wedding), and Saturday (at the pool/ocean). I can't wait to see the pictures either!!!

 

I really meant to bring a little bit of sand home (like airplane liquor bottle size) to put in a clear glass christmas ornament as a momento, I AM SOOOO ANGRY that I forgot to get some!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought about emailing my WC to see if he would ship me some, lol. CRAZY, I know. I just thought I would tell you guys to remember to get something if you want :)

 

Also, I got the 80 minute deep tissue and it was HEAVEN! I wish I could wake up like that everyday. My mom and grandmother both got facials and loved them too. My mom also got some sort of scrub and said that was her favorite thing she did. Everything anyone got done at the spa I heard great things about.

OK great- I will wait patiently until the wedding coordinator gets back to me about the signature drink.

 

Yes I arrive on the 11th, and we are having our welcome cocktails that night.

 

Can you remind me of when your wedding is? Hope I get to meet you!

Hey Kristie

 

I hope to meet you too. Our wedding is on the 17th, but we are coming in on the 11th too for a little pre-wedding vacation with my immediate family. Our guests don't start arriving until the 15th. Good luck with everything! I am so overwhelmed with packing. HA
