We are having the reception on the beach - we're at 99 total guests (FINAL!).  We are offering chicken, steak, or a vegetarian dish.

 

I reserved the Maroma Beach catamaran through Lomas at $54 per person (includes appetizers, drinks, r/t transfer from hotel).

Hi Amanda,

 

I hope to have my reception on the beach as well.  I've read through the first 500 pages of this thread, and back then some people commented that the beach gets quite windy- have you heard anything about this? Are you renting a tent? What part of the beach is your reception going to be on?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Tamara,

it's honestly windy anywhere you go especially if you get a windy day like ours. We had our reception at Plaza Zavaz and it was just as windy as on the roof top.

Hi Everyone,

 

I've kicked my wedding planning into high gear and I'm coming across many obstacles re: flowers so I'm turning to you ladies on this forum for some guidance.


1) Has anyone used flowers outside of Lomas? If so, does anyone have any recommendations??
2) Is it possible to purchase some things from Lomas and other items (eg. bridal/bm bouquet) elsewhere?

3) If there are no options for outside vendors, can Lomas customize the flowers?

 

Thank you in advance ladies - I'm not very happy with the selection they have for us and I have a feeling they're overpriced, but with an $800 outside vendor fee I hope our possible florist will have prices that would be more worth it.

 

Hope to hear ya'll!

SL

Woo, I remember that day seeing my 1,1,1!

 

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't get 'excited bride' feeling until we got TO the airport in LA... seriously it really hit me when I was on the plane about to land!

There are no dumb questions my friend!

 

No they will not charge you, they may charge you a setup fee. Just to give you an idea, I brought SO much stuff with me, all my flowers, paper lanterns, string lights, votives, menu's programs, you name it I brought it. They charged me a total of $180 to set it all up which was worth it. I gave them A LOT. I also mentioned to her, "there has got to be a bride that brought more than this with her right?" to which she responded, "ummm, no, you win" <--- oops :)

 

The outlet's are standard US outlets, you're good!

 

Kittenheart,

 

you brought your flowers from home? Were they real or silk flowers??

I am looking at my flower options and I feel like I have no choice but to use lomas, which I'm not satisfied with...=(

I was not thrilled about the flower options either. I decided to get silk flowers and after a lot of research, I found www.bloombridal.com. They had so many good reviews and I loved their flowers! The colors are so bright and vivid. Plus they won't wilt! I will also be using them as centerpieces for my tables. Below are the flowers I ordered for my bouquet and they are creating a matching boutonniere for my fiance. My bridesmaids are going to have small bouquets with just the purple plumerias and the groomsmen purple plumeria boutonnieres.  Good luck on your search!

Your pics so far are gorgeous! I just browsed at your photographer's site, and she has done some beautiful work.  I am currently looking into photographers, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing how much you paid in total for Sara to photograph your wedding!

Thanks a ton!

    • 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?
