    We will have to chats more.... I'm still trying to finalize my dress. Until that's complete, I don't think I can think about anything else....

    My wedding is July 18th so we will be there from the 14th-21st! I'm starting to feel stressed with decorations and everything!

    I'm starting to feel stressed too girl!  Everyone keeps asking me how I'm going to get all this stuff down there... I suppose I'll wing it.  Are you pretty much planned?  I have my centerpieces planned... my welcome bags are being designed now... but I don't want to go too crazy until I have a final count.  We thought we'd only have about 35 attending and we are already over 40... so the panic is setting in.  I dream about this stuff in my sleep, haha.

    The dress is the only thing I've got completely taken care of.  Get that done, and hopefully we can trade ideas.

    I would love to chat more! It's so nice to talk to people who understand this process and what we are going through!

    Lol I have still have so much planning to do!! I keep waiting for a count to order stuff since I don't want to over or under order anything! What are you doing for your center pieces? Are you having a company do your bags and what are you putting in them? Bags were going to be my next project to work on! :)

    I got aqua colored square paper lanterns for my centerpiece with light gold votives and seaglass sprinked on the table.  The lanterns are nice b/c they fold up so they are easy to transport and my wedding coordinator at Now, Luisa told me that there isn't a charge for using them which is awesome! 

     

    As for my bags... I found canvas bags on etsy that are reasonable and customizable.  When I get the proof back, I will post it.  I'm putting the following in the bags:

    Koozies (etsy)

    Plastic Tumblers (etsy)

    Resort key/money holder (waterproof and super cheap) 

    Welcome Letter

    Itinerary

    In sickness and in health bag - pepto, advil, tylenol, shout wipe, band aids, mints, tums

    Hand Sanitizer (bath and body on sale)

    Coconut body lotion (bath and body on sale)

    Sun screen

    Word search book

    Gum

    Tissues

    Chapstick SPF

    Sewing Kit

    Gatoraide packets/kids get koolaid packets

    Beach balls

     

    I think thats it!  I've just got to get it all together... and down there :blink:

    @kosrae89  Thank you so much for sharing your wedding photos.  I have Claudia booked as well for our July 24th wedding at Now.  I don't have her booked for the 1st hour of our reception, and I was wondering if you would recommend that I add that?  Was it worth the extra $500?  Also, how long did it take for pictures between the end of the ceremony and the reception.  I too booked the minister for my symbolic wedding which is at 5:30... the cocktail hour immediately follows at 6:00 and reception at the pool at 7pm.  Not sure if I should push the wedding back to 5:00.  Did you feel rushed?  Also, do you know what the difference is between the quiet pool and the relaxing pool?  I can't tell which is which.  I would love to have your full review emailed to me when you complete it.  Thank you again!

    I just emailed you the full review and the answers to your questions! Please let me know if you have any more questions. Happy planning!

    @TinaBanita19 hello our wedding is May 1st, we are flying in our photographer from "home" and using DJ Mannia. I found flying in a photographer and using a outside DJ to be cheaper than using the resort.



    Does any one have Francina for their coordinator?!

      Hi DR2015! My wedding is in August and Francina is my coordinator. She has been really helpful until now. How has it been for you?

      @Jariana2010 same here- I would say since around thanksgiving she has been slacking, at one point I emailed her supervisor Mercy to ask if Francina still worked there and of course Francina responded to my month old email at that point. I know we aren't the only wedding but for the amount of people we are traveling with I would like to think this is going to be well worth the travel and expense..

        @DR2015 I have called her directly and that seems to work best. Same here! I plan on having about 85 guests. How big is your party?
