        did/are you both having positive experiences with the wedding holiday?

        has anyone heard anything about other companies like luxe or weddings by oceans?  i've heard mixed reviews about all these three companies - but I guess that's the way with everything! everyone has their own personal experiences, good and bad :)

         

        thx!!

                You can't do a pick and choose, but you can have them pick 2 different options when sending invites and have a response card.  the resort just has to know 45 (or maybe 60) days in advance they say.

                I think you made a great decision!  I'm not an Indian bride but my TA/wedding coordinator locally (Toronto) coordinated the Indian wedding mentioned ealier.  The coordinator from Toronto travelled with the group to act as the liaison between the bride and the resort. She said that everything went smoothly and that it was beautiful.  117 people in attendance. 

                 


                I have the same number of people.  I am having a private reception at Zavas plaza.  #1 I wanted the privacy #2 I like the look of the location #3 its yours for the entire time scheduled #4 private bar = quick service. 

                Afterwards - I just learned today that the "teen club" transforms at 11pm into an adults only dance club with dj.  My coordinator (who was on site for a 10-10-10 wedding) said that it was more lively than the mojito lounge.  Mojito lounge has some music/bands but definitely more subdued according to my TA - e.g., no dancing.  When I asked if it was "teen like" in appearence - she said no.  Maybe brides that have been can give their opinion on the quality of the teen hangout turns adult only after 11???

                I am doing a coctail reception but as a welcome cocktail.  The time in between my ceremony and the reception will probably be less than 1.5 hrs - I am going to advise people to gather at a bar for a drink in between or go back to their room for a siesta if desired!


                 



                I am almost 100% certain that we will go with that menu.  I think it has something for everyone.  That or the Mexican buffet. 

                Reasons:  versitile menu - people can select what they want.

                Downfalls: buffet

                Trade-off:  There is no pick and choose menu that allows guests to decide what they want.  I don't feel comfortable "choosing" a menu for over 40 people when they have already paid to stay at an all-inclusive resort where every restaurant allows them to choose according to their tastes.

                What I would have preferred:  a pick an choose menu with some variety that is plated and served. (from what I understand - doesn't exist)

                 



                My TA told me that many items are placed into warming dishes and then there is a BBQ set up to cook/grill main courses.  I'm assuming that they replenish as needed. 



                I have really loved plum and gold and ivory.  but, also like the red in there if an option.......

                I'm not a big "omg I love...colour X".  

                For my wedding  however I am a fan of a deep purple (plum) or burgandy if pushed into a corner to decide.   So...I've looked at a few websites, incl "the knot" and I am not convinced by any one colour as "awesome"....

                but I am partial to the plum/purple:

                the debate (all including green and likely some white with a plum backdrop):

                purple and orange

                purple and yellow

                purple and lime only

                another combo???

                My style is- sharp, modern and simple.

                Thoughts?

                  I think Hot Pink with the Peacock feathers would look really cool as well

                  I know you've heard it over and over, but if you like it....rock it!  This is one day you can truly get away with anything you want!  Heck...Carrie wore a whole bird on her head :).  Sure it may not be some people's style, but with all of the festivities and excitement, do you really think those few would walk away saying "OMG, whats with the feathers on the shoes".  Dont worry about it. 


                  Agreed. I mean really it's your day and you should go for it if that is what you really want!

                    I had wanted to find hot pink heels, but wasn't having much luck.  So, when I came across comfy, cute champagne heels for only $9, I bought them.  Then, I thought I would dress 'em up myself.  I like the peacock feathers and I was excited about it, but my fiance made a face.  He wasn't a fan.  And, then upon sending pics to my friends, 2 more said  EH with 2 liking them.  I know I should just do what I want, but I figured I would get all of your opinions.  They will be under my dress, so you really won't see them anyway, but I worry if a lot of people don't like the feather looks, then they may not like my bouquets (as the girl is considering adding some feathers.)  Hmmm.......

                     

                    Thoughts?

                     

                     

                     

                    I think these are gorgeous!  I think they would also look amazing in hot pink with the feathers too.  If this is your style, then you will totally rock it on your wedding day, go for it, you only live once!  Also, no one is going to judge you on your wedding shoes, so do whatever makes you happy.
