He emailed back for me to call him so we can have a conversation... not that there's anything wrong with that, but did you all have to call him? I'm much more of an email girl...
Hi girls...hope eveyone's plans are going well. I have a few questions...!
1. I need help with the music!! We want a dj and I know you girls have done alot of research so maybe you can help me out.
2. Did someone mention in an earlier post that they are having a slideshow at their rehersal dinner?? That sounds great could you fill me in on any info.
3. What is everyone doing for their rehersal dinner??
My photographer is doing a slideshow at the reception - I understand that he's uploading a small batch of photos to a laptop and letting it run during party time. I'm sure that the hotel can accomodate a slideshow, but you may have to bring your own laptop. Check with Perla or Elisa.
For our welcome/rehersal dinner, we're hosting a cocktail hour on the mexican patio (where the fountain is by the theater). For the dinner following, I just booked a group of tables at the reef grill.

I am going on a site visit this weekend to check out Paradisus, and my FI happens to be very very picky with food, and I wanted to have tasting while we were there. But frankly I am totally lost as to what to even request to taste. Has anyone had tasting at the hotel? We are very interested in Le Hermiage. Becks, I noticed that you will be having your reception there? What did you choose to have? Would you mind sharing the dishes you are having? How much per person did it come out to? Are menu set per package? So many questions, So lost help~~~
We are having the beef carpaccio or crispy shrimp for apps, then the lamb, beef or mahi mahi for entree. We are skipping the soup course, because who wants soup in August? We're having the yummy profiteroles for dessert. Cake will be afterwards, out on the terrace. We are paying approximately $85 per person for the dinner.
If you want something you can customize, want to make speeches using a sound system or want to have dancing between courses, I'd abandon the idea of L'Hermitage. It suited us, but mostly because we were willing to work within their rules.
