I see you are getting married June 13th! A day before me! I'll look out for you! We arrive on the 12th :-)

We have 2 instrumental, one is my song,  I'm walking down to Kenny G - Sentimental. Here's my song choices:

 

Guest Seating:

 

John Legend - Stay With You

Train - Marry Me

Kenny G- Songbird

Robin Thicke - Angels

 

Processional (Mothers and Wedding Party)

Sade - By Your Side

 

Me! :-)

Kenny G - Sentimental

 

Recessional - 

Robin Thicke - Magic

 

Great song choices!! I'm still trying to decide on what to do.

    Hey ladies!!! If anyone is looking for passport invites I just put the finishing touches on my my amazing passport invitations!  I highly recommend them, the quality is impeccable and very reasonable prices!  I added some ribbon and little embellishments!  Vanessa and Dave did such an incredible job on them and I truly cannot thank them enough!!

      We are flying in on the 12th and leaving the 19th. I wanted to get there as close to the wedding date as possible b/c I know I won't be able to relax before the big day! My relaxation time will start the day after the wedding is over! Right now we are at 62 guest! And I'm really hoping THATS IT!  Wayyyyyy more than I ever expected. I'm very over-whelmed. We invited everyone we would invite to a local wedding thinking people wouldn't come....WRONG!! Boy were we wrong! I thought maybe 40-50 max. Whew, the cost are really adding up but oh well. Nothing we can do now :-) People on my FI's side that I have never even heard of are coming. I'm just coming to terms with the fact that my idea for a small/intimate wedding isn't happening! My poor dad--when I mentioned a destination wedding he thought we'd have about 10-15 guest... lol...I'm honored that all these people are coming but I just didn't expect it. But I suppose it's better than a 200+ guest wedding locally! I'll take 60 over 200 any day! 

       

      Good song choices! I'm sure everything will come together for you! Go ahead & download the songs on your iPod and then hopefully you won't change your mind once they are on there!

       

      What time is your wedding? 

       

      Pilar said she'd block off a section of the lobby bar for cocktails the evening before.... That was before our count of 60 guest... Anyone know if this area will be big enough for us??? PLEASE SAY YES ;-)


      62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

        Hi! We're getting married at the resort on May 3rd and I was wondering if anyone could give me any info on the readings they use for a legal ceremony?? I'd love to make programs with this info ahead of time but I haven't heard back from Pilar yet. Thank you!!

            The lobby bar will definitely be big enough to accommodate you - it's the main lobby and there are dozens are couches, benches etc.

                Oh yay! More inconsistencies. I finally got a response from Pilar. Will post it later when I am on my laptop. From what I remember, you will pay for iPod set-up for the ceremony even if you have a dj for the reception. Then, what pissed me off the most is that you have to pay $40 if you want them to re-use your chair sashes for the reception or you have to provide double. Super annoying. Oh, and you can't use your hour photography whenever, only for the ceremony. WTF! The rest I forget but I will post it later. 

                 

                As a tip for everyone, I put numbers in front of all my questions and Pilar answered every single one of them. :)
