    Hi @perianjay, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I have been binge reading on this site and I really love yours and everybody's ideas!

    I'm recently engaged (rose & white gold ER :) ) and fairly certain we are going with Beach Palace. I am in the very, very, very early stages of planning. I had originally wanted to do next December, but we are trying to save for a house and are both on leave from work for health reasons. Getting regular pay with no overtime is no fun! So, now I'm obsessed with Day of the Dead details and am now thinking November 2017 might be more feasible for finances, theme, and for our potential guests. We work in law enforcement, so days off are pretty competitive and will fill up in January for the entire year.

    I've received a form letter response frome Palace resorts, but they haven't responded to my email with detailed questions. It's been a couple weeks, I know they are busy and totally understand their priorities. So, I was wondering if you, or anybody else reading this (You might not even read this for a long time with your date so close!) could forward me a list of costs wedding details for the Palace resorts? I found one online, but it's from 2012. Definitely interested in what's included for fewer than 75 room nights. I'm not expecting *too* many to make the trip, now watch 100 people want to come! Haha I'm still not an expert at navigating this site, so if there's messaging, idk, but my email is rebeccarpeck@gmail.com

    Thanks for any help/input and again, congratulations - everything looks beautiful!

    I know I said I wouldn't be as active before I leave because I have definitely been crazy busy lately, but i'm happy to report that we finally finished all of our music playlists with the wedding DJ app. For any girls that were wondering if they should go that route, i'd definitely recommend it. It's a bit complicated in some ways, but a lot of it is more on the itunes side of things (just making sure that you make playlists on itunes first).

     

    I noticed that the wedding DJ app only lets you have playlists around the 2 hour mark and I had 5 hours of reception music, so I had to break it all up into three music playlists on itunes and on the wedding DJ app. If anyone has questions, let me know!

     

    We leave in 9 DAYS! (single digits. wooo!)

     

    We're 90% done our packing. We're bringing summer clothes, so that made it really easy to pack in advance since i'm not wearing any of the clothes on a day to day basis.

    We will definitely hit our maximum weight with a pound or two to spare and that's even with us dispersing a lot of our decor etc to our guests. 

     

    I had my final dress fitting on the weekend and it was a tiny bit snug, but that's good news because he was able to zip it up fully. Not sure if I mentioned before, but when I picked my dress up from felichia in October, the girl there could only zip it up 80% of the way - it didn't want to zip up past my girls lol.

    I ate pretty healthy for that whole month and now it fully zips, but i'm not sure it's the most comfortable. Beauty is pain I guess.

    @calgarybride2015 Thanks Kim :) I'm enjoying the anticipation, but I can't wait to get out of here.. and get out of work most of all hahaha. My brain is in complete vacation mode so it's definitely not easy waking up in the mornings and dragging myself to work.

    Woohoo 9 days until you leave and a week till you and Chester say your "I do's"

    I cannot wait for your big day, I can't imagine how excited you must be. And I agree that it must be hard to work, I'm over a month away and I'm already on vacation/wedding mode lol
