$60 per bottle for champagne!? For what?! It's not included in the private reception package? That could be a problem...

Does anyone know how you can get around the $60.00 per bottle charge for champagne,  This sounds extremely high.  Do they deliver bottles of champagne to your room if you want it in bottles?

Hi Girls! Whew, it took me about four hours to catch up tonight (this morning) because all of you have been so BUSY!  :-)  Glad to see you all progressing so well with your tasks! 

 

Quick question for you past brides - How much cash did you take with you to AS and was it ample?  If not, how much to you suggest grand total for set up fees, tipping, misc, etc???  Thank you and I hope everyone has been well!

I like the long table. I think I am going to do to that for the rehearsal dinner. Everyone can chat and get to know each other :) I know this is an AS thread but what are you ladies doing for hair and makeup? I know there's a spa at AS but not sure of AB. My wedding coordinator said they are building one and should be done by the end of the year. What's are doing?

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
