I know I'm going to want shrimp as part of some course of the dinner, but I have one guest with shellfish allergies... Will they give an alterative to her, does anyone know?
Hi Tara,

I asked about this and Deyanira said that they will substitute meals for people with allergies/food restrictions and will do it for free as long as that is the reason. Otherwise, it is "pick one" for all guests.

btw..hi! I've been silent on this thread for awhile now. Would you believe I STILL haven't booked my date?? Talk about procrastination (well actually I have been mad working out preparing for a fitness comp...came 2nd :) and I have another this weekend coming so one more week of mad-dash training).

Love the activity...had to spend the last 30 minutes catching up! I'll keep peeking incase there are any questions I can answer. Oh and thanks for the 2010 prices LaToya!

Yeah Tam their site is kick a**! The checklist is more geared towards an at home wedding, but it still gives you EVERYTHING, even if you don't need it! The website builder is pretty user friendly too!

Hi girls! Can I also be added to the cake and bouquet list? My email address is abrowab@yahoo.com. I just hired Dj Mannia for our wedding. They are a little expensive, but I have read great reviews about them! I was a little nervous about using an iPod, knowing my luck, something would go wrong. Has anyone heard of hiring a cigar roller for the reception? I thought that might be a nice touch!

 

Thanks!!!

 

Amy :)

amy, i know they can do a cigar roller, but i'm not sure how much it is. the last time i looked i saw that most cigar rollers charge by the number of cigars. it looks like some people have had a great experience, and others didn't get as much as they wanted out of it. definitely worth asking a WC though if it's something you're interested in!

Yikes I'm so behind in all this news!! A massive thank you to you all for posting such useful information!!

 

I'm so excited that the 2010 prices are FINALLY out!!

 

Although i'm a bit miffed that the WC at dreams NEVER responds to my e-mails!! Grrr

 

OK...i'm off to finalize my budget!! :o)

 

anbrkl2010 - I'd heard the cigar roller was $250 (09 prices) but wasn't sure what exactly that covered.

On my homepage it shows up on the left hand side, in the tool bar under the heading of "planning tools"... I believe thats where it should be when you are just starting out too (since that would only make sense!) :)

Take a look at mine if you would like to get some ideas:

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
