    30 Meters of fabric would be 32 yards.  I had 14 yards... so I'm guessing there is 16 yards of fabric for each color based on the length.

     

    I don't know what they did for her fabric, but for mine they just tied it up, there were no cuts made.

      Hi Jemma, which wedding package did you have? Was the toast after ceremony included and was the akumal bar close for guests to drink whilst photos are happening? Xx

          Maybe but she also had her husband as a second shooter to take any angles she couldn't get, did you take a look at mine? At least what she told me she said she had no problems getting all her shots. I had Martin, maybe he was different but he was everywhere, so when he was on one side of us Vina was on the other lol we felt like super stars

          Great review Fally!!  I have added it to the official thread, it'll be helpful and fun for other brides to read.  Thanks!

              Crystal and Fally (or any other bride who had their wedding dinner at Dolce Vita recently),

               

              Were the tables set up as long 10 tops? That seems to be the consensus....

              Did you use a seating chart or place cards at all? If so, did you just give it to the WC and let them go for it or did you have someone else help set that up for you?

              Did you have a sweetheart table?

               

              Our group is rather mixed and I think it would be beneficial to have a chart to ensure that like people get to sit at the same table as one another. My thought was to just make a board that shows people's name under a table number and then just have the number on the table and then they can sit wherever they want at the actual table. It seems easy and efficient. That being said, I would like certain tables to be near each other (our friends span 2 tables, my family spans 2 tables... you get the point). Also, I think it would be nice to have a sweetheart table to have that time to just be with my new husband and "catch our breath".

               

              I would love to hear what other brides did :)

               

              Thanks,

              Jill

                I didn't do a seating chart since my group was fairly small and they all seemed to get along by the time our wedding came. Myself, my hubby and wedding party sat at the same table though, we had 2 long tables set for 10 and a round table set for 6 or 8, you can look at my pics (link in my signature) near the end are the dinner photos you can sorta of see it lol

                 

                I'm sure if you had a seating chart or table names the WC will have no problem setting it up for you, just give it to her in your meeting and explain where you want it or if it matters.

                I'm so sad Crystal!  Every time I try to look at your pictures Facebook says "view more" and then it errors.  I only get to see up to the group pictures on the rock wall and then no more :(

                  Thanks for your feedback Crystal!

                  We have 50 people coming and the majority of my Fiance's extended family are very subduded and don't drink so that's why I am going with the seating chart. But I will just make something up and let Eugenia know and then not worry about it from there!
