Regarding the comment about packages, did most everyone buy the basic 'pearl' package and customize (unless planning on the Sky add-on which requires the silver package)? It seems that this may be the way to go if doing a private beach reception?? Also, just trying to get a sense of everything, are most bringing their own centerpieces? I've seen a few posts regarding that.

Thanks ladies for all the help!wink.gif
I have the Sweet Free Wedding Package and the Sky Deck. I've been planning my wedding for over 2 years now and was looking into AS before it was even built, LOL! That package is no longer available but the Pearl seems most comprable to the Free as in I decided to build mine from the ground up.

I am brining real touch flower for my centerpieces since they are submerged orchid stems with a floating candle on top and I am renting the vases from them. They quoted be $400 per table for 3 orchid stems and vases so I opted to bring my own orchids, much cheaper.

Sounds great! So how did you arrange the signature cocktail? Did you give instructions for how to make it and they ask for it at the bar or pre-arrange for some to be made? I am so early in this process...hopefully I'm not getting to far ahead of myself:)
Sorry to jump in on Wendy's question here, I also have a signature cocktail and I just asked my coordinator if I could have one and just give her the recipe. She checked and got the approval from onsite. I then made a girls evening out of it and made 3 different pitchers of cocktails and we tried them all and picked our favorite, then I sent my WC the recipe.

I also have a signature drink for the Sky Deck I created as well for the welcome cocktail.

FI & I are also doing a Catamaran - but we are doing it the day before the wedding in lieu of a "rehearsal dinner" and FI's parents are paying for it.

They can accommodate up to 50 people. We are also bringing 3 kids and Mark at Paradise catamarans is providing life jackets for the kids sizes as well.

We have approx 35 people going and its about $2300 for transport, drinks, and food, and 4 hours on the boat from 3pm - 7pm. I guess that is the sunset cruise too but we will go snorkeling first too.

Yup it's that easy. Just give the recipe to your WC and they'll make sure it's available. We're having a toast with ours right after the ceremony but it will also be available during our reception.

Sure thing! This is called a Boulder Sunset and it's served in champagne flutes. It's layered for that "sunset look." Our friends served it at their wedding last year...an original creation by the groom's uncle!

I'm really scared that Jagermeister might be our signature cocktail. My FI is the brand manager for Canada and most of his guys are coming to our wedding or and the wildest one is a GM! friday.gif

Feel safe in knowing that packing bottles down there would be risky b/c they could easily break. Also, you could tell your onsite WC when you get there that under no circumstances can Jager be served! You don't even have to tell your FH... wink.gif

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
