@MrsCtoB I know!! I'm about 5 months away....it's definitely approaching quickly. Are you all set? Any issues with the planning up until now?

For the most part, yes! Of course, I still have small to do's but thankfully all the big things are taken care of. No issues other than the dress and getting everything organized really. I am not sure if you said you have Ana for your WC but she really is amazing. I don't know where I would be without her. She is so patient with all of my questions!

@MrsCtoB  You're 2 weeks away!! How did you decide to differentiate who was eating what? I remember the coordinator saying that this was expected so avoid any confusion during reception. 

 

Be sure to come back and let me how things went! I believe we are both using mainly the resort's resources so I would love to know your experience with them. Hair/Makeup - getting it done by resort also?

Yes...I can NOT believe how fast time is going by. 

We ended up adding a small bedazzle thingy to each place card (blue for fish, red for beef, and green for vegetarian). Ana said that was perfect so pretty simple. 

I definitely will. I am using most of the resort vendors, yes, so I will be sure to let you know how they are. Hair/make up is the one thing I am not utilizing. It does come with my package though, so my mother in law and a few other guests will be using the salon so I will let you know how theirs comes out. I have seen some of their work and its pretty good. I am an on location hair and make up artist so it didn't really make sense to use that lol. My best friend (and owner of the company I work for) is in the wedding party so she will be providing hair and make up for the bridesmaids too. I will pass on any photos I have of the VIM salon services though!

@MrsCtoB Such a good simple way to differentiate! I agree, definitely doesn't make sense for you to utilize their salon given what you do loll Thank you in advance! I look forward to your feedback  :D
