    I had the gold dinner menu. We had the romaine creole hearts of palm salad which was ok. We chose the lobster bisque which was pretty nasty. We had the beef medallions with shrimp which was pretty good. And the tiramisu which I heard was good. By the time the dessert came we were all up dancing and only a few people touched it. 

     

    For the gold cocktail we chose the prosciutto canapes which I didn't have a chance to try, the sushi which is really small pieces but decent (I'm a sushi lover!), and cream cheese avocado rolls which I didn't have a chance to try either. We got the chicken taquitos for the hot choice and these were really really good. I heard this from many guests of how much they loved them. 

     

    Hope this information helps!

      Hello Ladies....just got back from my vacation and 'Dreams' Wedding!!  It was AMAZING....

       

      I had a ceremony on the beach at 3pm - the sun was out and it was a little breezy which was wonderful.  We had a time confirmed by the judge of 6:30pm - which was too late for me.  So we arranged to have the WC marry us and we would legalize later that day, however when Deyanira picked me up she told me the judge was here and ready to go - so that was a great surprise.

       

      My WC, Deyanira, is so sweet.  She is amazing.  All of the things that I brought down for the wedding I gave to her days before and she took care of all of it.  She took my seating arrangements, my wedding favours - everything.  I did not even go to see it before the wedding - to be honest - I forgot.  I was so happy to see the terrace.  We had the Himitsu terrace and it was perfect.  We had a group of 43 people and it was perfect.  We danced the night away and I never worried about anything.

       

      I brought my own playlist on my ipod which Deyanira hooked up to a stereo system - it was so easy.  She pressed play and that was it.

       

      The ceremony was beautiful - she played a song for my bridesmaids and I walked to somewhere over the rainbow - it was soo perfect.

       

      She also played music after the wedding as they were cracking out champagne for all of our guests.

       

      We had a cocktail hour from 4pm-5pm - with assorted sushi - it was good, avocado cream cheese rolls and smoked salmon canape.  All of the apps were great..I did not get any complaints.  I also had chicken fingers mainly for the children in our group - but the adults loved them also.

       

      For supper we chose Buffet #2 and it was served at 6pm - Chicken Cordon Blue, Salmon Hollaindaise, and we substituted the flank steak for tenderloin.  We also had an assortment of veggies, rice, potatoes soup.  The meal was really good.  Most people had the beef and loved it as well as the chicken.  I had the salmon - it was a bit dry as it was sitting in a chaffing dish - but the flavor was good.

       

      I had no complaints about the meal everyone loved it.

       

      The break between the cocktail hour and supper was perfect as it allowed us to get a tonne of photos with the wedding party and for myself and my hubby.  I brought my own photographer - who is also my sister - so it worked out well.

       

      The reception went off without a hitch - in fact the entire day went off without a hitch.  I could not have been more pleased and have not one single complaint.  I loved every minute of it. 

       

      My only suggestion for upcoming brides is to try to take it slow and enjoy every minute.  It goes by so quickly.

       

      I will hopefully have pics up soon on facebook...I will copy a link if I can!

       

      If there are any questions....feel free to ask.  Also on a more general note, the resort is also wonderful.  All of my guests loved it, they had no complaints about food or service.  Everyone that came with us had a spectacular time.  I would not even think about going back and would in a second.

       

      Carol

          Jenny,

           

          I sent my WC a picture of the cake I wanted and she said the baker was able to mimic the design so just find a picture of one you like and send it to your WC and ask if they can do it!

            Send a photo of a cake that you like and they will try to mimic the design.  That is what I did and it was beautiful and exceptionally delicious!!!

              Just another thing I forgot to mention.  they will charge you $15 US for each flower you have on the cake and my WC indicated that they typically do not put flowers right on the cake for reasons of cross contamination - at least that it is if you want real flowers.  I did not bring a topper with me and they had one - it was a groom carrying a bride - it was cute.

                  No, I don't think so.  If I understood right when I met with the WC - the cost is based on the people that it has to feed - so basically the size and numbe of people you are feeding.  I honestly can't even remember how much my cake cost - I would have to look at my receipt that I got for the wedding when I left.  They have a number of flavours - choc, vanilla, almond and strawberry - I think.  We got the vanilla and it was delicious.
