i have a question, does the ipod speaker system come with a microphone? or is that seperate? i'm hoping to have one of the groomsmen announce the cutting of the cake, etc.

For a plated or buffet dinner, she quoted me a price of 1200 for the first two hours and 360 for the second two hours. That includes either the buffet or plated dinner, round tables, white linens, drinks, china, silver, etc.
She told me that having a cocktail reception would be 600 for the first hour, and 300 for every hour after that - which would put us at 1500, pretty much the same price. However, we're supposed to get the first hour for free - which would make it 900 I guess. I'm wondering if I go this route if they keep bringing food out each hour, or if the food stops after the first hour. Seems a steep price to pay if they don't bring food out each hour!!
She also mentioned that I only get tall cocktail tables for the cocktail reception, no sitting areas. She seemed to really be pushing me towards the buffet...I'm not really sure what I'll do.
Eureaka, I got that book too, LOL. Also, I got The Knot Book of Wedding Vows and Traditions, and that has some awesome music selections in it as well. We've been using that book for finding ceremony music.
Also, they were going to bring the chairs we had set up in the gazebo over to the terrace for us but it was too windy; they should let you have the chairs from the gazebo for extra seating.
Have you considered the lounge furniture from Deco Cancun? It was very comfortable and was perfect for the number of people we had.

For July brides - are you doing your reception indoors or outdoors? I really envisioned it outdoors, but my fiance thinks it might be too hot. Any thoughts?

JodiMichelle - That's how I feel about it too!! Besides, I don't want to have to decorate a room - I want natural beauty!

We are sticking with the plan to have ours outside but our WC is tentatively reserving a Ballroom, just in case we get there and change our mind.
I have to show you my shirts I got in yesterday. I think my DH will get a laugh out of these the day after our wedding. The color isn't showing up right.... they are a medium teal color.
I got them from Advantage Bridal!

We ended up booking a buffet for our reception. Now I'm not sure where to use our free cocktail reception.
I am torn between having it Friday before our welcome dinner, or for an hour before our wedding between noon and 1 - the wedding starts at 1 - to tide over our guests until dinner, and to make sure everyone has a cool drink for the ceremony!
