OK... here goes vent time LOL!

 

I was one of the girls that had Suzanna. NO CLUE she left until I called because I hadn't heard from here in hmmm 2 weeks.

 

Wait a minute....Suzanna lefthuh.gif? Oh great! I have had issues dealing with her as well. I've gotta call and see who my new contact is.

Thanks for the heads up and good luck!

So, I've called the Royal and have been assigned to Flora. Is anyone working with her and should I be concerned? That is such a bad thing to say, but after the lack of communication I can't exactly be faithful. Now its time to go through my emails and make sure we are on the same page.

My fiance and I are talking about doing a honeyfund. We have lived together for years and have what we need. This is a great option that our guests can contribute to at any denomination.

Hi ladies I have a silly question. For the ceremony to you do assigned seating? Or do you just reserve the first few rows and mark those seats for father of the bride and so on?

Yes that is our situation, too. We have owned our own home for 4 years now and do not really need any household items. We initially weren't going to register for anything, but then decided that it was best so that we don't just receive random things. My mom, however, still wants to have a shower, but I don't think it makes any sense.

We are doing the same, this is the site we are using Honeymoon Registry, Travel Planning, Perfect Newlywed Experience | Traveler's Joy - we did this for those who cannot attend the wedding and would still like to send a gift

I also did not want a shower because I felt everyone was spending so much money to come down. Well I found it I am getting one anyways lol. I decided to register at Crate & Barrell and keep everything under $50. I figured we can always use new towels etc

FOR PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE RECEPTION

SALADS
Royal seafood salad perfumed with plum & peach oil (SP-1)
Was very fishy and the one we had was infused with jasmin, the presentation is amazing but it did not taste that great
Avocado stuffed with crab pulp au fresh dill vinaigrette (SP-2)
This one the dill
very over powering but again beautiful presentation

Spinach soufflé with blueberry sauce au white wine flavor (SP-3)
I think this is the best choice, fish can be hard not everyone likes it

MAIN COURSES
Shrimps au sherry served with jambalaya rice (SP-1)
Red snapper Fantasy stuffed with seafood & black caviar cream (SP-2)
Beef fillet tournedo with fresh wild mushrooms sauce (SP-3)
The beef was cooked perfectly, presentation was amazing def! go with this one, you will love it, again the other ones are just tough because the majority may not like it

DESSERTS
Baked pear stuffed with almond mousse (SP-1)
Paris chocolate shell stuffed with fruit au white Cinzano flavor (SP-2)
The chocolate shell is amazing, they make it all right than and there. I can't remember where my presentation is but I have a link to pictures and this is one of them. It was an amazing dessert and would go perfectly with cake.
Cannoli trio stuffed with praline & raspberry coulis (SP-3)


here is the link for pics from my site visit - http://www.shutterfly.com/lightbox/v...bbd47cbb382743

hope this helps :)
I was looking at your pics again. Do you know which soup was which? There was one in there that kind of looked like a bisque. I'm thinking it must have been the clam chowder, but not sure.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
