Too cute
Some of the smilys are really cute... a couple are mean.. I'm surprised they are on there HAHA So.. I may have already asked you (sorry if I am just having a bad memory) Are you planning on using one of the pre-designed packages from Beaches?

Where are they on the computer? Tooo funny I was going to ask you that. I actually am unsure. Lots of the girls on my other board went with the beautiful beginning with add ons..I might do that. I really like the packages though. What about you? With them not allowing outside vendors I am actually excited that they now offer the photographer I was thinking of using for off resort pics

Will the st.lucia resort be offering outside photographers? This was one of my biggest issues with the resort

I have to confess to you ladies that you guys are slowly becoming my saviors/motivators . At least once a day for the last month I have a meltdown because I just can't imagine planning this whole thing. Ironically a decade ago , I was an events planner. That's probably the reason I could skip the whole big wedding thing. I'd like to go thru a drive thru chapel, but my FI is much more traditional and really wants this big wedding. The destination thing was a happy medium/ compromise for me. So after I spaz out and say I can't do this, put on my big girl pants and come on here. I live reding all the stuff you guys are into and it gets me excited . ( I do love a good party) lol! So thanks!!!!

I just realized.. most (if not all) of you are getting married way before I do ... what am I going to do when you all leave :(
We are in it all the way girl. My wedding is a week after yours.

Where are they on the computer? When I type a reply they are on the right hand side of my reply box.... I assumed it was part of the website..... :S&M::liar::gives: DON"T HATE --- JUST EXAMPLES :cool: Just a couple of the ones I am surprised to see .. but I guess if it isn't part of this websites its ok....? Tooo funny I was going to ask you that. I actually am unsure. Lots of the girls on my other board went with the beautiful beginning with add ons..I might do that. I really like the packages though. What about you? The beautiful beginnings is pretty... I like purple... but I never thought of myself having a purple wedding... I actually think they are all really pretty. However, I am for the most part doing with the Island Paradise. Changing some stuff but I like the brightness and all the colors of that one! Without telling him what I liked best I asked my FI - he picked that one too... So it was a must! With them not allowing outside vendors I am actually excited that they now offer the photographer I was thinking of using for off resort pics
I was thinking of that too... if you do off resort pics only.. what would you do for pics of actual ceremony?
Will the st.lucia resort be offering outside photographers? This was one of my biggest issues with the resort
As far as I understand. I don't have the details about this yet but when I look at the website I don't see anything about St. Lucia not having this options..... I am so undecided on what to do about this. I will wait to hear the options/pricing for the outside photographers (assuming it is an option) I really don't like the packages that the resort offers. One of our friends that is coming is really into photography. I told her I wasn't thrilled with my options and asked if she would want to take pics for me. She was more then excited that I asked. After I saw the new program I wanted to get some info before I made any finally decisions on how much I want to leave picture taking to just her. I don't want her to feel like she is missing anything because I have asked her to do this and I want to get lots of group shots of everyone and I most definitely want her to be part of all of those. I talked to her about doing just a TTD type session and she was all over that. She said I shouldn't worry about her feeling excluded as she will make sure she is included in everything. We have a pinterest board going - the inspiration pictures she post on there are AMAZING and if she can capture moments like that for me I would be more then pleased!! She said she has a tripod and remote for her camera she will bring (so she can be in the group shots) I just don't want her to feel like hired help! haha Sorry that was a long answer! HAHA I'm just torn .... We are going to their house for dinner this weekend - I will talk to her more about it then and try to get a feel for what she is comfortable with : )

Aww... that is sweet! My FI and I have both at separate times mentioned going to Vegas again and just doing a drive thru.... I think he only said it cause I was asking him too many questions one day! I actually thought it sounded like fun... for a minute! But the tropical beach is callllling my name! I have planned so many parties for others (including weddings) it is soo different when it is your own - I TOTALLY understand!! :grouphug:

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
