  2. @@mam9p8 Thank you!! I believe that all venues are available on all days, as long as someone else hasn't booked it for the same day (they can hold up to 3 weddings on a single day.) So you shouldn't worry about a venue not being available. Also, certain bouquets are $75. So if you told her exactly which bouquets you wanted and she gave you that price, then it's correct. Boutonnieres range from $35-$50. I've attached the price list so you can see everything. Ariana wound up being my coordinator once I got there. I had no communication with her before hand so I was surprise
  3. Hello Everybody! Just got back from Excellence. The wedding was perfect. My only issue was with the cocktail hour...we had 16 guests (bride and groom included) and we chose Las Olas for our cocktail hour. They only set up 2 tables (high boys) and the rest of the space was empty. It was very awkward and we kinda didn't know what to do with ourselves. The 2 tables were very tiny and we didn't have enough space to all put down our drinks or bags (for the ladies.) Had there been a few more tables, it would have been more comfortable and the space wouldn't have looked so empty. They also
  4. @@vanessajfelice I believe it is any centerpiece from the "centerpiece catalog." You're wedding coordinator should have emailed you the PDF document with all the centerpieces. If not, let me know and i'll try to figure out how to attach it here. There are many different centerpieces, ranging in size and shape.
  5. @@Izzychadbone I plan on asking if they could put two real flowers on our cake as decoration. I'm going to ask at our first meeting when we get to the resort. I'm going to see if they could just take two flowers out of our centerpieces to add to the cake, rather than paying extra. I'll let you know when we get back!!
  6. Yet another question! We're going to order menu cards for the reception. Is it safe to order them before our wedding coordinator approves everything on our final decision sheet? And how long does it take for her to approve everything once it's submitted? I'm curious if anyone has had the experience that they chose an item for their meal, and then it was denied. I want to order the menu cards now to ensure that we get them in time for the wedding, but I don't want to order them if there's a possibility that the wedding coordinator tells us something we picked is not available.

  12. @@kjb0528 Thanks for all your information! I agree that $50 is reasonable...I was just feeling frustrated because it took so long for her to respond to my last email and many of my questions weren't really answered. I also mentioned that I was going to be bringing some decorations down and Thamara never mentioned anything about fees for hanging things. So I was surprised and got a little nervous that there may have be other things that I wasn't aware of that are important. When I first booked my wedding, I would gather some questions for like 2 months before I would email her and the
  13. @@lynne1609 You are wonderful! Thank you so much for all your help and information. I'm going to give my WP a few days to respond before I send another email. In the past, it become confusing when I sent a second email before she responded to the first. I will definitely do what you said and give her a detailed description of the decorations I'm bringing and my idea for a favor table. Hopefully she will provide me with some useful information.
  14. WAIT! You have to pay for them to hang the decorations that you're bringing?! My coordinator has not told me anything about that. Did you ask, or did they give you that information on their own? I was planning on bringing some little decorations for the table (runner, battery operated tea lights, napkin rings, and menu cards). I'm also bringing favors (mexican blankets) which I was assuming they would display on a separate "favor table." I got a small banner to hang on the favor table, more battery operated tea lights, and a framed sign. And lastly, I was going to bring my own st
