    so i am back
    the wedding was awesome!
    Chandlyn was very helpful. We met with her a few days before, i showed her oics of the type of cake and flowers i wanted.. she took those and showed them to the florist and the baker(wjich she outsourced for us)
    We met quickly the day before for a rehearsal. basically it took 5 mins i just wanted everyone to see where they were going and when,she met me in my room adn escorted me to the beach so i knew excatly what to do.
    The pastor was great, adn you dont meet him before which is kinda strange. we wrote our own vows which he had no issues reading, he just didnt know what some of the words were like ebb,k and pronounced it wrong- no big deal.
    the weather was on and off clouds which kept it from getting too hot and it was not windy.
    We had champane served right afterwards on the beach.
    then off to pictures, micheal was awesome.
    we finally got a suite the day before the wedding which was awesome for the bridesmaids and ladies meeting in my room beforehand.
    als great for the wedding night, which however never did get decorated as promised and we didnt get our breakfast in bed as promised.
    in all it was great.
    we paid for the upgraded flowers, champane, isle runner chair covers, private reception in plantation resterant, special menu,steel drum band at ceremony, mento band at the reception and an outsorced cake, extra flowers. also paid extra to have a dvd made and have hte photog stay and extra hour at 90 usd , everything including the caprice package was 4500 usd.

    i will tryed to post some pics but it wants a url and i couldnt figure it out and got fustrated. so tell me how or look on flickr.com my account is colleen.crummy
    and the facebook group for riu weddings

    everyone who is getting married there will have a great wedding!!!

        So I'm on Flickr checking out your pics. First, your dress was BEAUTIFUL. Love the blue around the waist!!! The 2 girls, I guess your flower girls & your bridesmaid...LOVED their dresses & colors too. Everything looks sooo nice. You guys look like you had a ball.

        Then I got to the pic of the guy in the blue bathing suit taking pictures....FUNNY!!!

          I loved your pictures!! I LOVE your dress. I think you used the same colors as me (blue and brown). Your wedding looked amazing. It was fun to see a wedding that wasn't mine at the same place. Though you caught Chandlyn in a couple of pictures I laughed b/c she seemed to escape all mine. And you had a different officiant. You looked like you had a blast. Congrats!! Oh btw I swear I saw the same guy in the speedo was at the resort when I was there...hahahaahah!!

            The photos and your dress were beautiful! Those are my colors exactly and they looked so great in your wedding!

            Was there any hiccups at all? How much did it cost for the chair covers and sashes?
