    Hello ladies! I am getting married June 8, 2013. I am very thankful for all of your posts on here but my emotions are up and down! One minute I'm reading not to stress that everything will be perfect, then I read another post that makes me stress! I have had my date set for over 6 months and haven't really put much thought into "planning" assuming everything will be taken care of closer to time, but I am starting to really think I will be behind and i do not want to plan everything at the last minute. I saw someone on here post that they received a packet for planning. Is this the case? My dad is my travel agent who is booking everyone's accommodations but it seems like I still have to do most of the planning with the coordinator. I did not receive any sort of planning materials. I have already sent out save the dates and invitations and most have already rsvp'd. We are planning to have roughly 60 guests. Our ceremony is at 5:30 pm at the gazebo and I am beginning to freak because I was informed there is another ceremony only one hr. prior to mine in the same location. Our reception is scheduled to be on the beach deck...looks nice but I am hearing mixed opinions. Any ideas for great cocktail hour locations? (If we decide to have one.) I have ordered my dress and am working on locating the perfect bridesmaid dresses. I do not want to take a bunch of things for decoration and I am wondering if what the hotel offers is good enough? I am also hearing a lot of mixed opinions on the hotel photographer and salon. Please let me know what you have experienced. I do not want to pay for or deal with hiring outside vendors so using what the hotel offers would be great, but not if it is not good quality. I know this is a lot but I have a lot on my mind and a million other questions to ask so please if you have any answers or words of encouragement please post back.
