    I ate at the buffet but just like Amy only in the mornings. The food was great! From smoothies to sweet bread we tried it all! For the sake of the wedding, of course!!! he! he!
    I will probably be having my welcome dinner there. It's called the "World Cafe". They have several rooms to the side, Sandra will probably use for your event. And yes, I would certainly bring something to add to it as there is nothing. I was thinking of ordering several flower arrangements, bringing linens, candles and other centerpieces just to make it special.
    And yes, plan on either purchasing extra flowers for the wedding arch or maybe bringing organza to drape. It is very, very plain.

          Okay i just got my 'confirmation' email back from Sandra - i wrote her confirmign the details we discussed when we met. here's what she said:
          Also- just to confirm you said that the ultimate package will include the beach reception as a private event. no further charges for this.
          THE ULTIMATE COVER THE DINNER WITH NO EXTRA FEE , BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THAT OVER 20 PEOPLE THE FEE IS $55 USD PER PERSON , AND THE RIBBONS WITH SPECIAL COLOR ARE EXTRA $3.00 USD PER CHAIR

          the ultimate package includes the set up we discussed - ribbons, tables, chairs, white linens/sheets to decorate the pergola (no seperate privat event fee)
          YES CORRECT , WELL THE ONLY THING THAT IS NOT INCLUDED ARE THE RIBBONS THIS ARE $3.00 USD PER CHAIR AND YOU SHOULD TELL ME THE COLOR THAT YOU WOULD LIKE . THIS IS THE ONLY EXTRA FEE THE REST IS INCLUDED

            Awesome! I'm getting the ultimate wedding pkg too! Glad to know there won't be any extra fees like other resorts.
            I was going to ask if we could get "tiffany" chairs. Some resorts charge 8 bucks for each and if we already have to pay 3 bucks for ribbon it may be worth it.

                He does have a microphone for speeches though or if you want someone else to jump in and announce the cake cutting,etc
                I am glad to hear this and happy that we decided to just rent the speakers for an Ipod versus paying $150/hour for some to hit the play button!

                    I tried attaching a pic of a tiffany chair ( at least that's what another resort calls them ) but had no luck. Says the pic is too large.
                    And I am terrible at describing them but here I try... they are the golden colored chairs that have four posts (almost like fake bamboo sticks) as the back as opposed to the regular ones. And they are the chairs that typically don't need any covers or bows...they are beautiful as they come.

                      I'm a little late but here is a link (easier to do than attaching) to a photo of a Tiffany Chair on google images...I'm thinking about doing this too! So pretty!

                      Google Image Result for http://www.affordablechaircovers.com.au/galleries/tiffany/Silver_chairs_3.jpg


                      Whew that is a long link! Hopefully it helps!
