    Hey girls-
    I'm really concerned with having good food at our reception. One of the main factors in determining where we have our reception will be the menu and food.

    For all of you brides or brides to be that have done your site visits, can you tell me the following:

    Resort/Hotel Name:
    What type of service (buffet, plated, etc):
    What did you sample (brides to be) or serve (brides) for the:
    - Appetizers:
    - Soup/Salad:
    - Entree:
    - Dessert:
    How was the food specified above (ok, bad, excellent, etc):

    I understand that everyone will have different likes/dislikes when it comes to food but I'm trying to determine if certain resorts/hotels have outstanding food and which ones I should stay away from.

            OH I have a great place for you.... The Sheraton has a great place called Py-somthing.. (oh I can never remember the name of that place) but it's an award winning place. It has awesome food. Hmmm I think Natasha ate there and wrote up a review,, could be wrong. Anyways the food was awesome and it's beach front so you'll hear the waves hitting the shore. I'm actually having our wedding dinner at De Cortez, the food is good there as well (not as good as that Py..... place but still good) but we picked DeCortez because it was the "feel" we were looking for.

              TAMMYM....just looked on the Sheraton website and the DeCortez is EXACTLY the look that we've been looking for! Do you have any information (prices,etc.) from the Sheraton that you can share with me (PM if you want)?

                For those Cabo Hilton brides, can you offer any suggestions on the food? What you may have ordered, liked, disliked?? I will be working on picking out the food soon, I'm hoping to keep it simple. Thanks.

                    We are having it at the Hilton. We are having a jicama salad (sp) to start, a choice of beef tenderloin or the fish Vera Cruz, and we are bringing in our own wedding cake for dessert. We are working with Emeline to ahve churros and hot chocolate passed around at the end of the reception. I feel though that we should maybe have another sweet with the cake. Did anyone just do cake??

                      This is very good to know. I don't want cake and just sent a messag to Emeline about other options for dessert.
