    Yes, my WC was Laura, but I received an email from Zulma this week saying that Laura no longer works for the resort, and Zulma will be my new WC. I hope she doesn't get "bogged" down with all of the reassignments.

      Hi Everyone! It has been a while since I have been on here so I am catching up!!

      I also had Laura as my WC and now have Zulma. I have had a hard time getting resopnses from Zulma...which from what I have read seems pretty normal.

      To anyone who is using a huppa, do you have pictures? I asked for them from my WC, but have not received them yet.

      Also, does anyone happen to know the price if you just want to do hors d'ouerves after the ceremony? We are going to do the reception somewhere else, but I think I might have them do some hors d'ourves while we are getting the rest of our pictures taken.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!!

He was really like our child and for it to happen so suddenly one week after we got home from PDC has been really tough. Anyway, thank you again for your thoughts! I am trying to get back into the swing of things and just replied to the PMs you all sent. Please let me know if I can help you out in any way. My biggest advice is when you meet with your WC, be very specific in what you want. Bring pictures, write out all the details, etc. I know you have all worked so hard in your planning and it is so important that all of your ideas get conveyed to the WCs. They are very willing to accomodate you, but you just have to let them know what you want. Good luck!

          So sorry to hear about your puppy! I hope things are getting better for you both.

          I am still new but love reading and learning about all of your experiences. I hope you don't mind if I PM you later with questions.

          Congrats & hope you are enjoying married life!

            What is included in the reception cost as far as decor and floral is concerned? I can manage the cost for food, but much more just isn't going to happen!

            It was a slow night at my house tonight, so I've been looking through the history of "our" little thread- all 60 pages now! Aeroo (if you're still around!), I saw that you uploaded your reception quote... did you add much to it as far as decor? What was it like for all of your guests to have the same menu? Anything you would recommend steering clear from as far as menu items?

            Thanks in advance!!!
            We had our reception in the ballroom, but both the indoor and outdoor setups are beautifully done. The centerpiece is a hurricane candle (which is standard and included in the cost) and I just added a few more smaller candles around that. I spent no extra money on the reception decor and am pretty happy about that since the atmosphere was so nice anyways. They brought in the centerpiece from the ceremony and placed it near the cake. If you are having an outdoor reception, they put lights underneath the tables so it looks like they are glowing, which is pretty cool. I'm pretty sure that is also included in the standard setup. So, as for decor, what's included in the cost are: tables with white linens, chairs with white covers, hurricane candle centerpiece, undertable lights for outdoor reception. In my opinion, I don't think it's necessary to spend any money on the reception decor, as what they offer is classy and beautiful.

            I thought the food was excellent! We chose the salmon and it was delicious. They do allow you to have a vegetarian option as well, which was good because we had a few in the crowd. After the main dish was served, we found out that one of our guests did not eat fish, so we just sent it back to the kitchen and they replaced it with one of the vegetarian dishes at no extra cost! Our guests really enjoyed all the courses. I was really worried about the food because that was one thing that was so important to me. I would have been really disappointed if the food was not good, but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and presentation of everything. They did an absolutely wonderful job with the food - that's one thing I wouldn't worry about! It was definately like eating at a high end restaurant. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions!!

                      Hi girls
                      We are just starting to plan what my fiance and his groomsmen are going to wear and we are def going to go with the tan tux/suit since its a beach wedding. Just curious if any of you who are doing the same (seems most people don't do black) if they rented in their hometown and brought along with them or if they found a place in PDC that they trusted to rent from and just did it in town? My fiance is going to have like 6 groomsmen and plus my dad and such in the tan suits and I want to find the easiest and most cost efficient way to get them their wardrobe!! Thoughts and suggestions greatly appreciated!!
