I feel like the people think the etiquette of real weddings do not apply to away weddings. Ugh, so frustrating! But it's true, as long as your fiance and yourself are there, no one else really matters. 

               

              No, we're staying at Dreams Palm Beach actually. Maybe our paths will meet up a different way while we're down there, on an excursion or something. :)

               I completely agree. I guess they feel like if they have to pay for a vacation then they should get a choice in the location... Umm wrong!.. lol

              Aww. boo.. :o( But maybe we will cross paths :o) Are yall planning any excursions? I've seen some people are having boat rides, etc. I've been so worried with other plans, I haven't even thought of these things yet.

                Do it :) So fun.  Definitely start looking soon.  They recommend going at least 8 months before.  A lot of dresses come from over seas.  If you need it altered that can take more time.  So give yourself lots of time in advance!

                  Haha, exactly. But seriously, you picked a great resort so they shouldn't be complaining! You did the hard work for them. If some of my guests had their way, we'd be staying in some cheap-o two star resort just to save some coin. 

                   

                  I know we're going to do excursions, but what exactly I haven't decided on. I also haven't decided whether we will "plan" one for our guests. My maid of honor is so gun-ho about the excursions and she keeps asking if I've looked into this one or that, but I really haven't decided yet! I think I'd like to go on La Barcaza at some point, it looks really nice. I don't think it's something that has to be planned that far in advance anyhow, so I'm not too concerned about it at the moment. ;)

                   

                  If you do decide to go on an excursion, let me know. Maybe we'll book the same one. :)

                    I went out dress shopping and fell in love with a dress that was $1500 - WAY more than what I wanted to spend on a dress I'd have on for a few hours. I found the SAME exact dress on ebay, same designer, right size, brand new, never worn, still with tags, for less than half the cost of the dress in the bridal salon. I bid on the dress Saturday and found out I won the auction tonight! I was the only one that bid on it. I'm UBER excited! Has anyone else purchased their dress through any non-conventional methods?

                      Congrats!!!!! Gotta love ebay! what designer/dress? I bought my dress the conventional way through a bridal salon but i guess you can say i went unconventional because i have yet to try it on (eeekkkkkkkk) I just fell in love with one on line and no store in my city/province had a sample. So i decided to just go for it.
