As for flowers, I'm not a big fan. I had my bouquet made out of buttons, my bridesmaids carried parasols and the boutonnieres were made of feathers. If you want flowers I would find a picture of what you want and send it to your WC to see if it is possible to make there and what the extra cost might be, if any. The pictures that they have of flowers are quite outdated and IMO a little lackluster.

The only things I brought with me were hand fans and candy favours. All the other things were provided by the resort (chair sashes, flower petals, candles etc.)

Now for the ceremony. I'm pretty sure it was about 15 minutes long including signing everything. It wasn't really personal and there weren't an vows. The judge read a story about what marriage should be like, we put rings on and said "I do", signed and thumb printed, and it was done. I did bring my own written ceremony with me but Karla said what the judge had was really pretty so we went with that. I advise you to write your own and send it to your WC before hand so they can pass it along to the judge. You might even need to have it translated to spanish first.

Phew that was long winded. Hope I answered your questions. If you have any more just holla.
Hi Kiera!

Welcome home. Great pictures and it sounds like everything went great - minus the fall maybe.

What kind of candles did they have? Like little tea lights or something? Did they rent them to you?

That's the only question I have for now.

I'm sorry you girls are going through all that trouble with the food and the photographers. I will see what I can find out when I have my meeting with Karla.

Raykel - you should call the front desk of the resort and ask for her, they'll put you through to her.

That's not fair at all. I hope it works out for you.
