Our Summer Wedding
Posted: Jul 27, 2009 1:13 PM

Hi Ladies,

I also wanted to say thank you to all the ladies of the forum for their support. Planning a long distant wedding was not easy, nothing turned out as planned, but we're married!!!! Send me a message if you're getting married in Puerto Rico or need advice on what not to do if you're having a Destination Wedding!!!

Thanks you ladies!!! And by the way, I changed by privacy settings so if anyone has time to check again please let me know if you were able to see the pics. Nothing tragic happen at our wedding. Just little aggravating things that got to us. Our florist did not use the ribbon I sent her for the bouquets. Instead she used a gold and cantaloupe ribbon that had nothing to do with our wedding scheme (cream, lavender and chocolate brown). I had my first true bridezilla moment when I saw my bouquet, but I was able to fix it needless to say! Then, the church people didn't let me pick my readings. Instead, the deacon (the priest didn't speak English so a deacon had to perform our ceremony) picked every single chauvinistic reading from the Bible and read them to me with a grind on his face. This also meant we didn't have Communion at our Catholic ceremony. Then at the reception, our DJ/MC kept my recently divorced in-laws holding hands while waiting to be introduced while he tried in vain to utter a few words in English. All he did was to keep saying check-sound, check-sound and clear his throat!!!! Thank God a friend stepped in and rescued the night! Also, I forgot to handle the table list with what each person was eating to the caterer and it took them forever to start serving the food (it was around 8:00 o'clock at night). And you would think this was my bad, but 80% of the orders were chicken, so can someone tell me how hard is it to start serving out dinner???? We weren't too happy with the food's taste or presentation either. I wasn't happy with our cake either. We order fresh flowers to decorate the cake and the baker didn't do a professional job putting the flowers on the cake (believe me, I took 4 Wilton Cake Decorating Classes!). I also specified to the baker what layers were what a flavor (drawing and everything) and the woman got them backwards!!!!! Anyhow, it took DH and I a good two hours to let our hair down and enjoy the reception. At the end of the night, everyone had a good time and told us how beautiful the wedding was. Isn't that what counts right? ;-)

Isla Bonita, Things have a way of going slightly awry but they still turn out beautiful. At our wedding the limo was late and so we were late to the ceremony and it all went off schedule. The cake looked nothing like I wanted it to. One of DH's relative complained about getting food late and most of our guests left after the speeches, so we didn't really get to visit with them but everyone tells my mom how wonderful it was and I had fun and a great honeymoon. :)

Your pics are fabulous. The colours are so strong and your gown is beautiful. hank you for sharing.

I hope to be able to put some up soon. Unfortunately, I have to wait on the pics from the photographer because I didn't to have one of my friends take pictures with my camera. :( I have some before the ceremony in my gown though and I hope to upload them to facebook soon.
