Lindsay, your pics are amazing! I'm so jealous you got castaways, it wasn't available when we were there
Hi everyone! We just got back on Sunday, woo hoo!
The wedding was great...seriously, don't worry about anything. Francina was wonderful, we were very happy with her. Pay attention to the WEATHER!!! We were supposed to do our reception on the beach but it was too windy...then we moved it to the pool area. Immediately after the ceremony it started pouring rain. We had to eat our dinner in the buffet and then moved out to the pool area when it stopped raining . Needless to say I was extremely disappointed. But once we were out there it was a blast. I highly recommend Caribbean Celebrations for centerpieces and other items you might want. Even with the outside vendor fee, the cost was way less than the resort. They did our decorations for the gazebo, pomanders for the aisle, tiffany chairs, sashes and lounge areas for the reception. They were great. The hair lady was awesome, I was SO happy with her...makeup not so much . I left looking like an orange mess and immediately washed it off and did my own.
As far as welcome bags, Bubba mugs were a HUGE hit as well as band aids and pepto. BRING PEPTO AND IMMODIUM!!! It's just the price you pay for going to a different country. The beach was beautiful, one of the best I've seen. The resort was nice too, very pretty.
We hired HDC, they were AWESOME!!!! We came home with almost 300 pictures that were amazing.
I'm trying to think of anything else but can't right now . I will add things as I think of them. Feel free to ask my ANY questions!!!
Also, pm me if you want to, I have pics on Facebook and will friend you so you can see them .
