Also, there was a page labeled garnishing, is it one garnishing or two?
    i was wondering this too, i'm not crazy about some of the menu options for the luxury pkg either, and i would like to possibly get some of the other options from the other menus, but haven't heard if we can do that or not?
    also, i would like to know how many choices for garnishes we get with the luxury package?

      Hey I just noticed your post about being from Dallas. I'm sooo slow haha! But yey! I'm actually from a really little town just east. You know how everyone always pictures Texas as open pastures of cows and horses and all that junk? That's my town to a T!

      And let me tell you I'm sick of this weather we're having today! Come on summer!! :)

        can some of you ask your WCs about the legal ceremony outline? i need to email my WC again to clarify that we can personalize our legal ceremony. Krisswim said we can't change anything if we have a legal ceremony.
        HI - yeah i was told you couldn't change anything for the legal ceremony. But the day of my wedding as i am waiting with my bridesmaids for the ceremony to begin the judge asked me if we had written out our own vows! I was like "uh no we were told we couldn't"....not that i wanted to though....but still!!! Talk about giving me some notice!! So who knows. I think vows are ok, but sand stuff and readings are a no ( unless this has changed since the beginning of May).
        One word of advice though for all brides: I was really stressed about silly things like programs and decorations, table cards etc...but really when you get there they treat you SO WELL and are SOO attentive towards you. EVERYTHING is taken care of right away. All my worries were immediately eased. I was able to call my WC anytime while i was there OR go see her in her office. It was terrific! (Michelle was my WC) She ROCKED - actually even before the wedding i never had trouble hearing back from her.

        The legal ceremony went like this:
        Judge does an introduction - she said a nice reading from a Mexican poet or something like that. then she did vows. Then we did rings ( kinda similar vows) then we signed the marriage certificate and did our thumbprints. Then we kissed. And it was over!
        Its really quick but really nice. I ended up not doing programs ( mainly b.c i ran out of time and realized that I was getting married in Mexico - so who really cares?!) But then b/c of the swine flu half our guests canceled the day before we were leaving and half of the wedding party had to cancel too. So i
        am SO glad i didn't waste my time with them. LOL.
        If anyone wants the name of that Mexican poet i can watch my video and try to get his name. PM if you want more info too!
        Thanks!
        Shannon (Kriswim)
        **Shannon** 40 people BOOKED! (but only 23 made it b/c of the Swine flu Pandemic )

            Yes they do offer steaming, they need the dress 2 days in advance. I do not know the cost though, it is included in many of the packages.

              i think it's $30 to steam the dress, according to the price sheet i received. much better than i expected!

              and as far as you texas ladies complaining about the weather? i'm from minneapolis and would happily trade you ANY time!! :) talk about a loooong winter, ugh! nah, actually we've even had some of ALL our snow melting over the last couple of days. it's mid-30s now and (sad to say) that feels pretty nice. i am more than ready, though, for hot sun on my back and sand in my toes!

                Oh, I bet! FI is from Canada and he always tells me I have no idea what cold is (when I say i'm freezing lol), so I bet you feel the same :-). We just had a record snow fall here two weeks ago (snow is rare here) and it also snowed over Christmas (when the day before it was mid 70's and i was in shorts). Crazy stuff!

                  Thanks Stephanie and dianep! I have the Eternal Romance package so it's not included in mine. But if it's really $30 that isn't bad.

                  And dianep all of my family lives up north - Minn, Chicago, Penn... they always tell me my blood is too thin. Haha. I was in Chicago over Christmas when it was -10 degrees and I thought I was going to die. And yes as Lisa said we had about 12 inches of snow a few weeks ago. It was so pretty!! :)

                    This is exactly what I thought, too. Remember when they said they had a "big meeting" a few weeks ago? I mean, I HOPE they are, but we shall see.





                    Was this for luxury package? If so, I didn't get that one lol
                    We did not get a package, we decided to do a la carte. We are having a three hour private reception, though. She told me that this included a four course meal.

                      can you tell me about the pricing for the a la carte wedding? we're so small that i'm considering switching. i currently have just the classic package. we'll have ten guests at the most... thanks!
