my riu wedding in ochie

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

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