    Amazing!!!  Oh my...I had some laughs too...like over the room without a view...I wish I was more balls-y like you when it comes to certain things!   

     

    And the Vistaprint postcards for guests to send messages to you...I threw three stacks of them into our recycling the other day after my groom-to-be decided we shouldn't do it in the end...eeesh!!!  I would be super envious right now if you told me you had an album full of advice and good wishes that had been mailed to you on those postcards! ; )

     

    So would you recommend the Riu just for a one week holiday in that area?  We're considering it for our anniversary next year.

     

    Congratulations and the very best to you both!

     

    J~

              Great thread Krista, you are hilarious! Can I ask where you got the menu for your reception, did Keisha give this to you?

               

              Your vows are beautiful, they brought a tear to my eye. We have chosen a religious ceremony but I would like the minister to say a few words for my FI's parents. They have both passed and we have a memorial candle that I would like lit at the beginning of my ceremony. Was there any trouble with your own vows?

                Great planning thread. You looked beautiful! Love the table set-up! Did you have your reception at The Plantation or The Steakhouse? For the free wedding package, did you have to pay an additional fee for the meals?

                Thanks...I'll keep in mind to watch for any overcharges. I just noticed that we have the same hair flower! I love the look and simplicity of it. Lauren just asked the same question I had wanted to know about the menu so I'll wait for your reply on that. But I was curious;the photo of you by (against) the wall, where is that located? Was it on the property because I'm racking my brain as to where. What time was your ceremony and did you feel it was enough time between the ceremony and reception? Mine will beat 3pm and I thought cocktails weren't needed in between...I feel our guest can grab something at the bar or go and freshen up. For the decor at the beach, is this the one that is included with the free package because it looks great. Your photographer took a nice shot. Sorry for all the questions..i hope you don't mind.
