Alisa- thanks for the info! I just bought some paper lanterns from the Dollar Tree today...I only bought one at first bc I wanted to first see how 'cheaply' made they were before buying more. I was actually thoroughly surprised by them...they look the same as ones in other pictures I see online. I am also doing the fuschia/tangerine color combo! Can I ask where you found the little colored lanterns? That sounds really cute...will you use tealight candles or the battery operated ones that look like a flame?? I'm thinking battery-operated bc wind from the ocean and candles doesn't mix well...

I am also still undecided on all white paper lanterns, pink/orange, or a mix of the colors and white. I feel like all white gives more of an elegant look, but I also like the splash of color that you get from the colored ones...any thoughts?? I am so back and forth with it!

I am having lanterns at my cocktail party at the Pandero Terrace and am using a combo of white and orange.  I too think the all white looks very elegant, but I wanted that pop of color!


Here is a pic from a previous bride with the all white at the Pandero.  I actually went as far as to put pictures of an orange lantern I found online scattered around the picture below in place of some of the white and decided it would look good.  Since all of the chairs and linens seem to be white, I think its nice to have that pop somewhere!

Ok...another update...  (this seemed TOO easy!?!)


I wrote Yesenia and told her that I wanted to use an outside photographer and who it was (Octavio Montes) and she simply replied:


Hi Jessica,


Thank you for the information. I have made a note in the system that you will be using an outside photographer. Please make a note you will have to purchase a wedding day pass for the photographer.


Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact me.


Thank you,


Yesenia Soler

Wedding Sales Executive

Good luck!!  I think it will be fine.  I really think they just want to be informed.  It doesn't seem like they are trying really hard to prevent it -- at least not from my recent interaction with yesenia.

Question re: cake - do you ladies have your fillings picked out yet? :)


Any recommendations from past brides? Do's or do nots? :) 




We had three layers - Bottom layer was carrot cake, middle was chocolate, and top was cheesecake.   All three were wonderful!!!   I am a Carrot Cake lover, and it might have been in the top three that I have ever had.

Hi Ladies,


Ok so I am a couple days out from leaving.  I was wondering if any past brides had any opinions on the buffets that they offered.  There are so many and I know the food was amazing during our site visit but there are too many options!!  Any guidance would be appreciated.


Also, does anyone still have the 2010 price list they could email me?  Mia.Roberts.Esq@gmail.com


Wanted to also give you guys a heads up that I received a power point presentation from Wilma that had each event and the little details associated with it.  she even included a picture of each venue.  I would be more then happy to share it with you just shoot me a pm with your email.


I found it super comforting to see a recap and it gave me time to ask questions and tweak things a little. 


Hope you ladies are doing well!
