I figured that it's simple enough of a menu that even the pickiest eaters (like FI) will eat what they like. I'm on the fence about the tres leches cake though... what do you guys think for a dessert? Note that we decided to nix the wedding cake that's provided in the package- we're having an AMAZING one at the AHR and I've seen so many reviews where it goes to waste, so we decided to cancel it!
    WOW! We are doing the EXACT same menu and cake...everything! Hilarious! I knew we were alike, but geez!!!LOL

      I had my final fitting Saturday which was great because my sister and niece were visiting for my shower which was yesterday. I have such amazing friends, they went all out and it was so special. My friend and fiance actually coordinated to fly and pay for my mom to come in and surprise me at the shower. His mom came too and it was the first time they met so very special weekend in all :)
      That sounds SO nice! My best friend, and MOH, threw me a bachelorette over the Christmas holidays, when I was back home in Alberta. It was SO much fun!

      We are having Hot Hors D'oeuvres (Chicken Chimichangas, Mahi Mahi Fingers, Chicken Satay, and Cheesey mushroom turnovers) during the cocktail hour. We are having the ceasar style salad, Green peppercorn beef medallions and the fruit tart for dessert. We ARE having the standard wedding cake, Tres Leches, and we've requested that once it is "cut", it be taken back to our room, where we will have everyone over the next day!

      Ken and I actually did a test pack run this past weekend, and we were able to fit all of our wedding stuff (for AHR and Mexico) into our one large suitcase. I am so proud of this feat!
      What are you using for centerpieces?
      We are using the basic table settings from the hotel, and I have purchased some different sized Starfish to be scattered all over. We are also purchasing Maracas, I have the tags made, and those will be at the settings, along with the starfish wine stoppers, and personalized bottle openers.

        Tati, you do not have to pay for the upgraded dance floor. I just asked Veronica the other day, she got the light up floor for no additional charge and she just had the Ipod set up so it wasn't even a matter of getting it with a DJ. Just thought you should know in case you have your heart set on it like me!

        I'm so excited for both of you! Geez, I have such a long wait! I would greatly appreciate it if you both would give me your input of which beach location would be best for my reception when you return. I would think by the pier would be too busy and too much public traffic.

          V told me the same thing...but I have been told by my wedding coordinator that it is $500 to upgrade the standard white dance floor to the light up one! I'm expecting the white one, but hopeful that we too, will have a nice surprise!!

          You have a wait, but...when I started planning this whole thing, I had exactly as much time as you do now....enjoy it! It FLIES by! Honestly...I don't know how the last year has passed us by...but it has!

          I'll try to get as many photos as I can (I would anyway - picture whore here) to show you the different settings...but I'm sure another bride will beat me to it!

            Where/how are you ladies getting your make-up done? I'm a little hesitant to use the Resort's MUA. Has anyone heard anything about them?

            I've also contacted MAC cosmetics and they have a store on 5th avenue. I'm debating booking an appointment there instead....

              This is so crazy that we are all getting infomration that is so different. I wish they would get on the same page with their pricing. We have decided to cut out some things because of the pricing we were given by Zulma (which has been higher than what I have been seeing poseted from others)....I have been going back and forth with her this week because I leave in 5 days!. Even she gives me different pricing everytime I talk to her. I am so stressed right now. I wanted to do a Chuppa, but with the prices Zulma is giving me, we decided to cut it out....which really sucks cuz I don't really now that I like the standard set-up too much. She also is not sure if the minister is booked for the day now....since I started with Laura and got switched to Zulma everything has gone wack!

              Sorry for the vent session...but I am really freaking out here!

                I would be freaking out too, but just keep in mind that everything can be figured out when you get there price and decor wise. So breath! Most of the brides have said that a lot of their decisions were last minute during their meeting there with Zulma. I would focus on making sure there really is a minister but otherwise everything will get worked out.

                Now, just be excited! You leave in 5 days and we fully expect a report as soon as you return!

                  I hear ya! Man, I hope everything comes together for you though. I'm feeling kinda the same way...since my "account" got moved to a new coordinator, I feel like...she doesn't know who I am, or remember (or check) what we discussed previously...and...I'm completely not convinced that all the things I am hoping for will actually...come to life.

                  But...I'm just trying to focus on the Mexican holiday I will get out of it...and marrying the man of my dreams....even if I end up doing that in the lobby bar!

                    my guests are concerned also. I really think we will all be fine though...

                    Does anyone else have concerns regarding this?
