    Thanks!!! Did you put that in your invitation or did you just put the start time of your ceremony?

      I just looked through my stuff and I didn't mention a cocktail hour anywhere.  I guess the first my guests will see of that is on the itinerary in the OOT bag.

       

      My invitation only mentioned a time for the ceremony.  (Although now I will be changing that - oh well - but the new time will be on the itinerary as well)

        True, that's a good idea. I didn't even think about the itinerary! what does OOT stand for?

         

        What about an MC... do you know if that comes with the package?

          This bride got married two days before me, I remember this on the terrace as it was the night of my rehearsal, that was actually just her cocktail hour on the terrace and then she had her reception on the beach. Claudia is pretty willing to set up anything you bring, they have a team that does it all like a "well oiled machine" lol. I can't see it being a problem for the cocktail hour.

            Questions: Satin or Organza, I can't decide!  I'm just having one long Table because I have about 15-20 guests coming.  I'm way behind in planning and need to order these linens so does anyone know the table length for a longer table or show I just order a table runner, maybe two to be on the safe side incase more guest come.  Any advice? I too want to do the laterns, how many do you think I should order.  I have seen pics of these on the beach around the dinner tables.. They look so good but I forgot where I have seen the pics.  I'm sure they put something in them to weigh them down.   Good looking decorations if you ask me!

              Hello Ladies! Quick question, do you remember how much it was for the buffet? Was it one set price or do they still charge one set fee per extra person (after 20)? I am thinking I may ave about 43 guest.

                  I was wondering who everyone has used to book group travel. Any recommendations of a good travel agency?

                    From what I understand, the same per person price applies for either the seated meal or the buffet meal.
