I don't really eat cake and I know a lot of people don't eat it (especially since we're probably gonna be doing heavy drinking) but I don't know what to do.
I would not get a cupcake for everyone. If you get 60 cupcakes, you are most likely to going to increase your price by 30% compared to getting 40, and I do not think everyone will eat some....maybe not even 40.

A friend of mine had a similar issue when she called for up the grade price to the adult only section swim up room - it took them TWO WEEKS to get back to her!
Has anyone else experienced issues like this with their TA's? What did you do? Is this normal?
I'm not impressed with the level of customer service they are giving our guests and us! We've asked questions before... we don't get any answers until we follow up two or even three times.
We're nine months out and I'm scared that this is going to scare away our guests when they try to book with them...
I noticed you are from Toronto....you should contact "The Wedding Holiday". They are based in mississauga by square one, and they are fantastic. That is who I am using. They get awesome deals as well. their website is www.theweddingholiday.com

I noticed you are from Toronto...have you heard of "The Wedding Holiday"? I am using them and they are fantastic. They get great deals to and work a lot with Karisma hotels. You should contact them. Their website is www.theweddingholiday.com. They used to be based in Oakville, but they just moved, I think to mississauga near square one.

Danie, I agree with Meghan. I would do 40 max. Maybe think about the size you want the arrangement to be and then decide on # of cupcakes. 30-40 should be fine. They sound cute.

 

Crista, You are 9 months out, I would really recommend changing TAs. I should have and I regret it now. I am going to have a stern talking to her on Tuesday with my concerns, but I only am waiting on 2 to 3 more people to book, so what else can I do? I really like Jennifer, the TA on this thread. She was so helpful and responsive. Call her and see what she can help you with.

So my Mom was at my sister's house yesterday and they called me on Skype to show me my wedding dress that arrived. It was hard to see it on the hanger so my sister and I convinced my Mom to try it on so I can see it on a person! hahhaha It was hysterical. She put on the veil and everything. Then I wanted to make sure it was the right size so I made her put on the other dress too. We were all laughing to hard.

 

Good news - the new one is amazing! My sister is nervous it will be too fited in the hips (the 2 of us did not get my mom's slim frame) - but they both loved the dress. Yay!!!

So I'm packed and heading to the airport in a few hours for my trip! I'm sure I'll have 100 pages to catch up on when I get back! Have a great weekend everyone!
We are just havng the 2 person cake in the package but I'm not crazy about fondant. I wonder if they can change that to buttercream icing.


Nicole-
Have a great trip to DR. I am so excited for you and your hub, it will be a nice get away from the winter weather.

What did we do without the internet! That is so cool you got to see your dress online while talking to your family. I bet that makes a being away from home much easier. bunny_4.gif

Hey ladies! I have been MIA so I am so happy to get to catch up. I finally feel like I am making some major progress. We got our travel vouchers from our TA yesterday which was a releif. She was being a flake and didn't charge any of our guest till last week but asked for final payment at the beginning of Dec. I was pretty PO'ed, people budget for this big chunk of $$ to come out of their account and then she sat on it for 6 weeks. I was not pleased and thought it was a bit rude but we got over it now have our travel vouchers. Stressed out to the max about that for a few weeks.

 

I got my make up for the ceremony yesterday. I decided to go with the Bobbi Brown waterproof eye make up line. Its really cool and last for 8 plus hours. I have a few things I need to work on but I think it will work out great. FI and I also picked out and ordered our cake topper for the AHR. So we are almost done with the cake planning as well. Today we are working on center pieces for the AHR with his parents. Well he is workiing on them, I am going to cook and watch football. He is the creative one and I wouldn't know the first thing on how to make a center piece stunning and romantic. Only 20 days left till the big day. The time is going to fly by. I am ready for the beach and a little sun!

Andrea, sounds like you are READY to get married! Woo hoo. Did you take loads of pix so you can recreate what they did for your make up? Are you having a professional from Azul do your make up on the wedding day? I cant wait to hear if it was sweat & cry proof :)
