  1. @IIimaa Thanks it was great. As i mentioned i brought my own decorations and didnt get them all back. I brought down the chair sashes, starfish, shells, vases, waterbeads and glass beads for the tables, and lanterns for the reception. I had to pay $25 to have them provide the blue fabric that is wrapped around the poles at the ceremony site. I gave them pictures of what i wanted and they set it up amazingly. It wasnt until i went to pick up my decorations that the problems came up. So make sure that you make a list of what you bring and exactly how much of everything and what it cost. For
  2. Hey ladies! Just got back and had my wedding on november 6th. Wedding was great! My few pieces of advice: 1)make a time line with your wedding coordinator and family and photographer! I felt way to rushed because I didn't make a plan before hand. 2)if you bring your own Decorations. Make a list of exactly what you bring and the amount everything cost! And if you really want make sure family members pick up your stuff from each site or move it. They lost a good portion of my decorations and blamed it on the clean up staff. In my opinion the WC was entrusted with it she's accountable.
  3. Thanks I only have 12 and they all have our names in them.
  4. I might be freaking out way to much on this receipt thing! How important ate they to have?! I've gotten a lot of my decorations second hand so there is no receipts!!! I have finger starfish that have no receipt and shells with none. My wedding favors are shot glasses and tumblers that's I hoy at the dollar store and did up myself. The dollar store receipt just gives a total not what items! Am I freaking out to much over this?
  5. How did you tip staff that helped with the weeding. How did you tip at dinner? How much? Did you tip the wedding planner?
  6. How did you tip the resort staff who helped with your wedding. Set up, dinner and stuff.
  7. If anyone has done a trash the dress session can you please pm me! Thanks!
  8. How long where the table runners you brought? I'm thinking of using my extra chair sashes and going horizontal in front of each seating.(for a square table) Will they move the chair sashes from ceremony to pool side reception?
  9. I haven't sent back my dinner yet. I have questions about it. Like what child friendly option is there. I have flower questions too. Their stuff looks pretty dated.
  10. Did you get any answers about bringing your own decorations and who will set them up?
  11. My wedding coordinator is Gina. What did you say on then phone!? Maybe I will call. Was their English pretty good?
  12. When is your wedding? I'm finding they lack the ability to respond to emails in a timely manner. It's almost once a month atm and my wedding is November 6th.
  13. I only have about 16 guests going working up to 20. I'm just curiouscase to what options for reception are worth it? We would like to do first dance, father daughter dance, some short thank you speeches and enjoy the rest of our night privately without all the other resort guests.
