    I got Deyanira to send me the wording for a typical ceremony at the hotel, but I don't think my status allows me to upload.

      tam, i think the girls figured out that the $8.99 is just for the floating gel candles and not for the whole set up. you can make those kind of centerpieces for not that much money though, especially when you sign up for the weekly hobby lobby, michaels and/or joann's coupons.

      also, if you want to have the wording posted on here, you can email it to me (ebredhawk@yahoo.com) and i'll post it for you!

      i just got some of my questions answered from deyanira and wanted to share some answers that you guys may be interested in:

      -silk flower petals are okay, even for a beach ceremony
      -the huppah they offer is wood, not bamboo
      -you can get the huppah without flowers (just the white fabric) for $150 as opposed to the $350 with the flowers
      -a microphone is included in the speaker rental and you only need to rent the speakers for your reception. they are included for the ceremony.

        nsbride 2010 & lrdavis23 ~ We actually brought our own centerpieces! I got them at ikea for around $20 per table and in that we only had 5 tables it was a good deal! I'll try and find a picture of them and post it later! (If I can figure out how too.....!)


        rdhbride ~ We had the ceremony at 5pm, then group pictures right after which took until around 6ish, then the cocktail hour until just before 7:30, then reception until 10:30, then hit the nightclub!

        ebredhawk & jocy ~ They couldn't actually offer "a choice" we actually had both chicken & salmon on the same plate which was quite a lot of food! However, some people only ate one of mains, and some ate it all! I'm sure if you had really fussy guests then they could just put one item on the plate.

        Let me know if you have any other questions!!

          What terrace is on the ocean?
          IMO if you are looking for an ocean view, I would go with bordeaux, it's right there, and a beautiful location, it's actually right ontop of one of the resturants and even the stairs going up to it is pretty.

          El Patio doesn't have an ocean view at all, it's at ground level and pretty far from the ocean, so you won't see it, however it's still a pretty location.

            I have been on this website all day...hopefully work doesn't mind! I saw that a couple months ago, there was a lot of people requesting the bouquet info to be emailed to them. I am sorry, I don't remember who all had this information...but if someone could email it to me, I would be so grateful!! danathebride@yahoo.com

            Thanks for ALL of the great advice ladies!!!
