everything looks amazing!!! congrats, can't wait for your review!!

quick question...did you bring the fabric panels for the gazebo or get them through the resort? if you brought them, what are the dimentions, if you got them throught the resort how much did they charge?

thanks so much!!

hi tori - i bought the sheer curtains at ikea which were about 90" h. i didn't sew anything...i just brought them as is. i bought these before the gazebo was remodeled so unfortunately they were shorter than i planned (but i think it looked fine). the gazebo is bigger than it looks! the tall posts are 5m (about 16.5').

THe gazebo looks great, can you share what the measurements were please for the curtains you made - did you have to sew the top or anything on them? I think they frame the gazebo really well...
CAn't wait to read all the reviews :)
Take care,
Tori

I got one of my friends to write all my questions in spanish and sent out an email. Cecilia replied in an hr. I know that she is very busy and lately has been taking days/weeks to get back but this time right away.

I emailed Ceceilia and Claudia this week as I want the 'A La Carte' price list as with only 10 people attending I might ditch the package - the emails got bounced back both times.

I will try again today and wirte in Spanish, my spanish is a bit rusty, I used to live in spain 10 years ago but I can probably get by.....

Thanks,

Tori

Another question for you ladies if you dont mind - in my case how would you set up the tables at the reception, we have 10 adults / 3 teenagers / 3 children, thats including Jason and I.  So really 14 guests including the children and us.

Family keep telling me to still keep the dance floor as we are british so like to have a few drinks and dance the night away, but not sure how to sit everyone in circle tables or a line or what.....

 

Any advice appreciated.....

We have ditched the package and are going with the free package and then a la carte the rest. We are having 13 people including ourselves. That being said, we are just doing dinner at Oceana on the patio as we didn't really need the dancing afterwards with that few people. This way dinner is only approx $15 per person instead of $50-90 (I cant remember the breakdown). You will have to decide what is important to you, ie. photography, videography, cocktail hour etc as these things add up and you may end up saving with the package, even with so few people. We are still going with photo and video but are not doing the cocktail hour or having the trio or any of the other extras. Also keep in mind that if you are qualifying for the eternity honeymoon package (you have atleast 5 rooms booked), if you ditch the package you cannot qualify for the free wedding and the honeymoon package. We still decided that saving on the wedding itself was better for us as we are staying an extra week for our honeymoon at a different resort so weren't worried about the honeymoon perks at dreams. 

 

To answer your other question about tables, we are having one long table with the 13 of us as opposed to splitting into separate tables. If it works for your group you could do 6 and 6 at rounds and then you two at a sweetheart table, or again just do one rectangle and not split people up. 

 

We are leaving in 7 days for our wedding in 9 days and are getting very excited! I will write a review when we get back and let you know how it all went with our small little wedding group!

Happy Planning!

hi ladies...just a thought, but i'm having a bit of a hard time getting used to this new forum so i was thinking that once we get back from our weddings and post our reviews, maybe we could post a reply on THIS thread letting everyone know that the review is up; might be a bit easier...at least for me, lol!!!
