I actually just received an email from my WC, who is Nekeisha:)
I have chosed the Waves of Love package, as my bridesmaids dresses are a light aqua/mint color, and flowers will be very deep/vibrant purple. I am most likely going to have small bouquets made for them, as well as the corsages/boutinierres (sp?) for the guys, however wasn't sure what to really do for my own bouquet? I was thinking mainly white with a hint of the aqua & purples in with it...
I was just planning on bringing an Ipod docking station down for our music...but I really don't like the idea of someone having to constantly monitor it & change it...plus I only have a total of 29-ish people attending, 8 of which are part of the bridal party so it's not a huge amount.
I'm having a hard time with figuring out centerpieces too...I already feel like I'm going to be bringing way too much luggage with me, so I'd like something light...a few people have mentioned using the bridesmaid bouquets and putting them in vases, that's a good idea, and i have a few packages of those expanding water bead things, so maybe that will be the way to go:)
Does anyone have any experience with their hairdresser? I have super long, fine hair and I'm so scared that it will be completely flat & gross looking by the time I walk down the aisle...what time should I be scheduling a hair appointment for if my wedding is at 4:00?
Anyway, looking forward to hearing more peoples thoughts & ideas!
Hey! We are getting married the day before on the 30th! so exciting, I can't believe how quickly time is going by. Our ceremony is 4pm on the beach, followed by a reception at the blue lagoon. I also heard from a few brides about the reggae band but I spoke with someone who was there recently and she saw a bride give each band member $20 to keep it down and play their slower tunes until 10pm. Money talks there apparently. So I'm going to try that and then have all of our speeches done by 9pm. We have 70 people and we orginally had the Poseidon but had the oppourtunity to switch so I did because I wanted to make sure there is enough room for a big dance floor. But the Poseidon looks stunning. I'm still a bit sad it won't be there lol It will go perfectly with the waves of love colours.
We have the waves of love package too. I bought all the centerpieces from Pier 1, I attached a pic. I also bought little starfish tea lights because I love the look of all candles on the tables, espeically when it's an open air space like that. So i'm hoping for no wind! lol
I'm going to do the same with the bridemaid's flowers for the head table. I think that will look beautiful.
I'm bringing my hair dresser, I've heard people have had good luck with some stylist from off the resort!
Have you finished picking all your favours? I'm just finishing up all of ours right now, I think I was a bit too ambitious!
