I have a question about some decorating ideas. We have had to change where we are having our private dinner reception b/c we have more people coming thatn we initially thought. So we have moved it to Plaza Zavas...which I think is absolutely gorgeous in pics! So I wanted to get some feedback on decoration ideas for this space. We are bringing our own centrepieces down but need everything else.
- paper lanterns: I love how these look in photos. I am assuming past brides have brought them down with them? Approx how many do you think you would need to fill the space nicely? And I notice some light up, are these the LED throwies I have been reading about? Any good websites you can reccommend for cheap, decent quality lanterns?
Paper lanterns really do make that space sparkle. We used about 20-25 lanterns in varying sizes. I ordered mine from asianideas.com (mostly due to the fact that they would ship to Canada) This will do the edge of the gazebo. I know a few girls also wanted lanterns hanging inside the gazebo-if you choose to do that I would suggest planning for about 35 lanterns. We made the LED throwies to put inside the lanterns to light them up. The lights that you might be referring to are actually part of the resort on the palm trees, as well there is some neat lighting by the adult bar which is sort of in the background. If you look at the photos below- in the left one you can see a pink light (that's part of the bar lights) and the lights around the palm tree are always there.


Has anyone done welcome bags for guests at the resort? I am starting to plan mine but I have no idea how I would go about getting them to the guests.

It might be a lot of work, but find out when your guests arrive and meet them in the lobby with the OOT bags. I know my hubby and I spent a lot of time in the lobby waiting for our guests, but the look and appreciation that your guests will have that you are personally welcoming them means a lot! Remember they are coming down for your special occasion, so it's nice to show them that you really are excited to see them.  I had a spreadsheet with everyone's flight times and we managed to greet all our guests. Plus we didn't have to spend the extra $4-7 per bag for delivery!

        Hi ladies!!! I have been looking into options for desserts at our reception. I'm getting more & more aggravated with the prices Lomas wants to charge but I'm willing to work with it, if it's worth it! I've heard many mixed reviews about the cupcakes they provide- mostly negative. They're willing to do a cupcake tower for about $400 which is still alot, especially if they're not tasty &

        look terrible =(

        Can anyone provide me some feedback on past experiences?

         

        I also saw a candy buffet & ice cream buffet, but again they want to charge about $10 person, and that would be about $1,000 just for that. Whatever is worth it, I'm OK with but I'd love some of your opinions =)

         

        Thanks so much!!

          Jenny- I had the $400 cupcake tree also. The cupcakes were TERRIBLE. Literally the worst cupcakes I've ever had - tasted like they'd been sitting around for 5 days. I ate one bite of mine. They also served assorted desserts with dinner -we had the family style menu. Those desserts were adequate, nothing amazing. I don't know what the other options are, but I would definitely stay away from the cupcakes. The sweetheart cake we had on top of the cupcake tower was better than the cupcakes, so maybe the regular cakes are better.

            We just did a simple sweetheart cake. Our pick and choose came with dessert, and like you thought $400 for a cupcake tower was ridic!! We figured since we couldn't freeze the cake and take it home with us, no point going crazy with extra dessert. And the dessert they provided was delish!

            Just look on the DIY section. There is a forum on the LED throwies and all the info you need. Or message me directly if you have specific questions.

            We did a 'set menu' dinner and it included dessert. We just did a small sweetheart cake for photo purposes. It really wasn't that tasty (vanilla), and the other desserts were decent. Our guests were happy enough with dessert, and were not looking for 'wedding cake'. I think it ended being eaten by the six kids at our wedding.

             

            Plus don't forget if your guests really have a sweet  tooth there is a large buffet open ti 10pm at Spoon! LOL

              Ladies- THANK YOU SO MUCH!! You have really helped me to make my mind up once and for all. And after reading Jessie's post, my worries were confirmed!!!

              I will most definitely stay far away from the cupcakes LOL And I'll look into any other options that can't really be messed up [like candy buffet or ice cream cart].

               

               

              Has anyone used Fresa Weddings for any decorations or desserts? I keep hearing about them, but from this forum some ladies used them & others tried but the resort wouldn't allow it. They have rave reviews so if that's what it takes to get things cheaper & for better quality, I'd love to try going about things this way =)

               

              Thanks for all your help I truly appreciate it

                Jenny I was trying to use Fresa but my WC told me they were not allowed however Kristy from Fresa told me she did a wedding there this month! So I resent an email to my WC to try and get her to let me use them. I'm waiting to hear back! I think it's worth try asking your WC and getting price quotes from Fresa!

                  I am allowed to use Fresa for some reason. I've emailed my WC twice to confirm and both times she said Yes. Maybe their policy has changed? Maybe they are only allowed for 2012 weddings and the policies changed for 2013? They should really give an explanation to you as why the vendor is not allowed.
