I sent them pics of two absolutely gorgeous but simple cakes to get them priced, and they came back being twice as expensive as their own cakes. Ridiculous! Imo, they were simpler than the ones they offer but one thing for sure about Karisma, they really stick you with a high price tag if you deviate from what they offer!
No, I believe we actually have the same exact options. My tactic is just telling them what I want (flavor and whatnot) and if they say it can't be done, fine but I got the total green light when I told them hazelnut with strawberries, couldn't believe it!

Also... I got reaaaaaaaallly lucky because the cake I absolutely LOVE was a cake done for a previous couple at AS that I saw in a Elizabeth Medina slideshow from there. So I sent them the cake that they had already done and had them make tweaks to it. My WC also has been successfully negotiating prices down for me. She got my cake cheaper and my chairs for almost half of what they quoted her... I don't know how she does it but she is the absolute BEST! We've become really good friends too in the last year, I'm sure that helps :)

You're so right! I think everyone has SOMETHING they dislike about their resort. One of my "must haves" was a liquor dispenser and a Jacuzzi in each room (obviously that was at the bottom of my list, but still). WOW, have another, huh? shots.gif haha I have no clue why...I just thought that was really cool. My resort does not have that great of a balcony, which I am super bummed about. I love nice balconies!!!!

Um, are you referring to Tiffany? Surely not.

AmyB, I am doing mainly just the workout. My FI and I have been eating way better, but we're not strictly following the diet. I have not had any soda, fast food, or ice cream for three weeks--this is a new record for me, lol! Also, Expedia has rooms open at AB the weekend of your wedding--I'm sure someone can get those rooms for you!!
