We did the BBQ Deluxe Buffet and all of our guests loved the food. I vaguely remember eating LOL but what I do remember I liked. 

 

I felt that the family style too would make the table too crowded.

The one thing that's super annoying though is that we had to have our guests choose which main course they wanted ahead of time. Also, out of ~60ppl, about 50 chose the 1st, so I'm not super confident we picked the right 2nd option since almost nobody is having it. Hoping its just because a lot of people like Surf'n'Turf, lol.
 

Pick 'n Choose.... oh man, I better go back and review that again because that might be the way to go.  Thanks for the input KayaWasTaken!

We're thinking about the BBQ as well, but just weren't sure because we have some guests that won't eat food off the grill if Pork or Beef have been cooked on it.  Which is all new to me because I eat everything.  I never even thought about what would happen to the centerpieces with a family style dinner.  Thanks for bringing that up!

 

Time to revisit the menu choices again.  Thanks for all the ideas and input girls.

Hi Jennypert, that sounds like a great idea about adding the salmon.  I always worry that there won't be enough food.

 

We'll be getting a 3 Tier Cake.  I haven't heard back from our WC yet about the costs of cupcakes or cakepops but we were originally sent the cake costs and have a cake chosen.

Hmmm! Guess I better check to make sure no one will be upset if pork and beef are cooked on the same grill as the fish!!! Hadn't thought of that since, like you, I eat everything!!!

Finally, heard from my new wedding coordinator, Christine! She found the emails I sent to Karla and has answered my questions. She seems a bit more forthcoming with information so I am pleased.

Here is a picture of what the dessert portion of the BBQ buffet looked like. Of course I have do not have pictures of the actual buffet. Sorry.

And a picture of our 3 tier cake. All our guests liked both. Some people had 2nds on the cake.

I will tell you that both the cake and the desserts that come with the BBQ buffet were way too much for a party of 50ppl. I think a much smaller cake would have been better. It just all went to waste.

These are beautiful pictures!!! I'm so glad we chose the BBQ Deluxe. I ordered the smaller 3 tier cake (for 30-40 people) so I hope we won't have a lot leftover. Knowing my family, they'll pack up any leftovers and take it back to their rooms. LOL

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
