    Kristie, any dress alteration updates?

    The days before I leave have been so busy! Sorry for lack of responses! Sooo good news! I have my dress!! Basically I went back to the salon and they brought in their "master seamstress" who said it would be no problem to fix! She added some boning and some other magic tricks and wa-la! I have a dress! So be honest I wish it fit a little better in the bust (more push up) but I'm happy it fits and I feel good! I leave Saturday morning before dawn! Soooo excited! Good luck to you Tova and all my othe may brides! I wish you all the best and happiness on your wedding day and everyday after that! I am so excited to see everyone's pictures! Enjoy every moment ladies, we only get this day once!

      Everything went really really well!  It did rain on Friday from like 3:30pm - 8pm.  We were still able to have our scheduled bonfire at 9pm and light wish lanterns at 10pm so it all worked out.  We booked a private catamaran for our guests Friday from 10-1pm.  And, my husband, my brother, his girlfriend, and I went to Negril.  It was awesome!  I jumped from the cliff at Rick's!!   How was everything with you?   Did you do an excursions????

      Everything went soooooo good. Wish I knew you came to negril and went to ricks, we were right down the street but we hung out there Tuesday. On Sunday we went to YS falls which was pretty cool we got to do the rope swing right into the falls. On Monday we did a photoshoot travelling all over but ended up in some awesome ruins right by the chukka tours place just outside of lucea I think it is. We also hit up a club, the jungle, a couple times and it was awesome.

        I leave Sunday ladies...and I still haven't written the ceremony script, my speech,  picked my music, done seating tables/ or packed for my fiance and I. (kids are packed) ...freakin out a bit...tomorrow spa day all day and then all I have is Saturday and that's hair day...so really only 1/2 day to do everything!! LOL

         

        Anyone have a sample ceremony script that has sand ceremony or kids as part of the ceremony? 

        Ok, here's our playlists for you. I don't know if we have the same taste, but hopefully this helps you a bit. As I mentioned, from our dinner to the end of the night we're transitioning from the 50s, to the 60s, some 70s, a bunch of bangers from the 80s and then some more current songs. Our taste in current music is indie/folk, but I'm not sure if that's your style.

        Good luck with all your last minute details! 

        Music while guests are waiting at ceremony site (we're narrowing this list down to 5 songs:

         

         

         

         

         


        Still working on a walk down the aisle song...

        Music during ceremony, playing quietly in the background:

         

        Villa De La Refugio - This Will Destroy You

        The Mighty Rio Grande - This Will Destroy You


        "You May Kiss the Bride" and walk back up the aisle song:

         

        Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel

         

        Cocktail Hour we have a mariachi band, so that will be our music for that hour.

            Sooo good news! I have my dress!! Basically I went back to the salon and they brought in their "master seamstress" who said it would be no problem to fix! She added some boning and some other magic tricks and wa-la! I have a dress! So be honest I wish it fit a little better in the bust (more push up) but I'm happy it fits and I feel good! I leave Saturday morning before dawn! Soooo excited! Good luck to you Tova and all my othe may brides! I wish you all the best and happiness on your wedding day and everyday after that! I am so excited to see everyone's pictures! Enjoy every moment ladies, we only get this day once!

            No worries on the delayed reply, I'm just happy that you're dress is in hand and ready for your big day and you feel good in it. Safe travels Chica, and I wish you and your FI the best!

                Congrats you early may brides! Kristi so glad your dress is good! I'm finally tying loose ends together. Now mainly just the the hair and nails thing left. Hopefully I can hold it all together now that my mom has totally turned against me. Selfish me, she would never do this to her family, blah, blah. Hope we will work past this eventually.
