I printed on 70lb card stock.  I chose a light yellow card stock with the hot pink print.  They look pretty cute.  I hope the idea works for you.

The room card was a martha idea as well that i thought would be fun for people.  Plus it will save sometime trying to figure out where everyone is since the resort is booked and some are on the family side and other on the adult.  This is what the card looks like. I formatted it so three will print on one cardstock. I hope this helps.

Wow...thats just crazy.  I asked multiple WCs in Miami and onsite and all told me it must be in Spanish.  I believe their exact response was "this is 100% a requirement and there is no way around it".  Goes to show nothing is set in stone if you can get ahold of the right person!
 

Welcome back...and congrats!!

Hey ladies!  I haven't been on here for a while but wanted to see how all your planning was going! 

 

Oh and that is unbelievable that they DO perform the legal ceremony in English!  I was a victim of the "no it must be done in Spanish" response.  So if it can be done in English I definitely recommend that lol.

Thanx for the other forum.

 

But your wedding is definately first im not getting married till 2012!! Tried to plan in advance in an attempt to make it affordable for everyone! Although still getting the moaning. Surely 15 months gives everyone plenty of time to plan their trip!

 

Hope your planning is going well.

I used this company and was pleased with the customer service and the product:

This was 135$ less 20% for the food discount we were able to get - so just over 100$.  The flavours I chose were a mixture of vanilla and strawberry.  They were very tasty and guests even took some back to their rooms to have for the next day.  I loved it because we didn't have to cut slices for the guests and because it still had a cake we could cut on top for symbolic sake.

Also, thanks for the info on the legal ceremony....I was totally considering changing to a symbolic ceremony because of the Spanish thing...now I have to reconsider.



Cigar roller is 400$ flat rate.  This price automatically entitles you to a selection of 200$ worth of cigars at no additional cost.  Once on site they give you a booklet with all the cigar choices you have.  They vary in prices with the most expensive one being 100$.  My FI (at the time) was able to select 20 cigars of various name brands with the 200$ he was entitled.  You may be able to select more or less depending on the price points you pick.  Of course - if you go over the 200$ you need to pay the additional costs for the added cigars.  There is no per person charge for the cigar roller. 

Congrats on being a new MRS!

Thanks!

My wedding coordinator in miami (Carolina) always said it could be done in English - but b/c so many people kept saying it couldn't I just figured I didn't care either way.  But when I got on site - immediately there was no problem and they acted like it was done all the time.
