      This had to be approved by the manager, so be sure to request that this happens, especially if you want your ceremony guests to sit on the patio and not in the gazebo.

        I did put them on the reply cards, but only half the people replied anyway lol. You should be okay. The other half called to tell us they wanted chicken or beef haha so it really doesn't matter if you put it on the reply card or not.

          Hey ladies! I don't remember if anyone used the resort videographer and what they thought. Also, does anyone know what company they use for videos? I know they use Funever for photos but I'm not sure about videos. Thanks!

              Randi - how many people are going on the catamaran and what did they quote you? That sounds like a great idea.

                we are doing an AHR because most of the guests who are going to mexico are friends/family friends (besides our parents/siblings and a few aunts/cousins etc).  but the majority of my family isn't going and it is hard on my grandparents not to see me in my dress etc. so we were going to do just a small, happy hour type of AHR with drinks and appetizers on Dec 11th at a restaurant in town. we are going to wear our dress/suit and have pictures all around etc. we thought we'd keep it small, and my fiance is from milwaukee (we live in minnesota) but people keep telling us they will see us in dec! so we'll see what happens :)

                 

                 




                WOW!!! That was really quick! I'm glad everything worked out!

                Did I read correctly that some of y'all are having your guests are pick their entree (between filet, chicken, salmon, etc.) and then you will have a color coordinated place card so the waiter knows what they ordered?  If so, that makes dinner much easier!

                  For any of you that are having a rehearsal dinner at El Bistro: did they mention a charge for table/chair rental? Valentina never said anything about this, but Jose (the manager) did. Is this right?

                    I could be wrong but I think Lady Di may have used them. I know she used the resort photographers and the pictures looked nice. I think we're going to use them as well, might as well. LOL
