      If you send me your e-mail I can forward you the checklist. I found it was cheaper for us, because there were things in the packages that we would not use and things that we would have to add. This way it is customized for us specifically. For instance, we would not use the couples massages and we did not need the room decorated or morning breakfast. (I mean really, room service is included and I can order what I want from there. With the morning breakfast they only have one option) I'm bringing my own bouquets, because I like specific flowers that they do not have in their bouquet gallery and quite frankly its cheaper for me to do it. They give you a champagne toast with the packages, but champagne is included in the open bar for the reception.

        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!! :)
        It is 30$ I saw it on my checklist.

          wow I missed a very active day today :)

          so again I'm sorry but we all seem to have gotten different answers for the canapes and food choices. I am not having my reception at the royal anymore so even with out the ultimate luxury package I was told you get 4 choice for the cocktail hour. I sent Zulma my choices and three were hot and one cold and she said no problem. I had her put it in writing so I don't its extra for the hot apps. Again who knows though.

          Oh yes ladies wondering about cake options the tres leches was amazing! it was very buttery and moist and very light. I just loved it!.

          I am worried about giving my dress and having them steam it. I don't know why but my worst fear is that something would happen. Has anyone considered bringing their own steam machine? Someone suggested I do this but I have never even used one. Wondered if you guys had any thoughts on this?

              Ya exactly and one of the reviews at the roayl, I can't remember who I'm sorry. It was a mexican holiday and they forgot to do it for her . I just don't want that stress.

              So yes any thoughts anyone or positive reviews would be awsome.

                I finally recieved a response back from Suzanna because when I e-mailed her this time I CC'd Carroll on it. I finally recieved my wedding contract that I have been trying to get since January. Our wedding date is finally correct on it...my FI last name is still spelled wrong, my address is wrong and the type of wedding is listed as religous and it's not. But I'm not picky as long as the date is correct I will sign it and fax it back!

                We also booked our rooms today, even though the prices still aren't out. And Saturday we booked our flights. I can finally say I feel like I am going to have a wedding! : )

                So good to hear everyone's feed back, as we all have the same concerns!

                  I'm a cake freak but hate to spend the extra money on it if I don't even know how it tastes!! And can anyone tell what kind of icing it is? It all looks like fondant to me. :/ I was hoping for more of a butter cream.
                  I guess I'm a bit confused about this. There's a wedding cake (obviously) AND a dessert, that comes with the dinner?

                  Are you guys doing both then??

Also, there was a page labeled garnishing, is it one garnishing or two?
                    I was told one garnishing, but we can pick 2 if we'd like (so, 2, to answer the question!!).

                      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!
                      Dianep, I will be moving close to you very soon, pretty bummed to go farther north since our winter has been so bad!
                      yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!
