I've seen a few posts regarding that.

    Thanks ladies for all the help!
    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!

                  Were they tea light candles around the table? Or in the middle of the table?

                    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!

                      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...
