      Holy wow!!  Just got done reading through the whole 110 pages and I feel so Aventura educated now.  I am an ACP bride and I am getting married on June 11, 2011 and couldn't be more excited!!!  I look forward to sharing ideas with you ladies and bouncing ideas back and forth. 

       

      Is anyone planning or renting their linen?  It seems a little pricey to spend $200 foe every 20 guests.  I am planning on having around 100 people there.

       

      Also, how did you get assigned a WC so early?  I was told by Yesenia that an on-site WC is assigned 90 days prior.

       

      I am also so nervous about the flowers regarding centerpieces and bouquets/bouts.  Anyone else feel the same way?

        Linens:

         

        I am renting table cloths only. I can't be more then $10 a table. The table cloths are eggplant purple. I am using the white napkins they provide for free. I thought the two would make a good contrast. I found chair sashes on line for .68 that I bought 40 of. Much cheaper then renting and the vendor that I went through had a great shade of eggplant.

         

        Decor:

         

        I am putting real starfish on each plate. I bought 40 for .70each on-line, Also from another great vendor. They look amazing....Again so much cheaper then buying their. I also bought candle for each of the tables. 3 per table.

         

        Centerpieces:

         

        I bought 5 vases from hobby lobby with 40 real touch Cala Lilly's. I got everything 50% off. I also bought 50 Chinese Lanterns.

         

        This all will be a pain to transport, but again...Cheaper then buying their. Also I plan on using everything for my AHR.

         

        I looked at all the centerpieces I could find on their website and from PDF's. I couldn't find anything i liked for under 80 per table. I think I bought everything for my centerpieces for 80.

         

        If I had extra money I would totally buy their, but I am using the cash elsewhere. Like on makeup from Fernando and Del Sol photography.

          One day I emailed Dulce about some questions I had and a few weeks later Wilma emailed me and said she was taking over for Dulce. Ever since then I have been emailing her back and forth and have not been disappointed!

            $10 a table for the table clothes? I was quoted $25 per table and $3 for the chair sashes.

            Im purchasing the chair sashes and table cloths from direct-linens.com. Everything is so much cheaper and linens are definitely easy to travel with. Im thinking of buying hurricane vases to put candles in out here and possibly doing a small floral centerpiece that I can buy in Mexico. Im gonna put maracas out on the tables for favors and will probably use the basic white napkins as well.

             

            I booked my stay and the wedding back in January and in February I received an introductory email from Dulce. Once everything is paid for, Im sure youll receive an email from one of the WC's.

              I paid for my package and still don't have a WC.  I will have to email tomorrow and ask for one.

               

              I am def going to do my centerpieces my self.  I want a candle based centerpiece because I am having a 6 pm ceremony and it will be dark for the majority of the reception. 

               

              I will look into the chair sashes.  Are you using them for both the ceremony and reception?  I worry about making someone take them from the ceremony chairs to the reception chairs.  I purchased a package but I am unsure if sashes are included for the ceremony.

                What vendors did you use for your starfish? And where did you find your sashes that cheap?

                 

                Where are you doing your reception?  I am interested in the paper lanterns but not sure if there is somewhere to hang them.

                  It took about a month for Dulce to contact me after I booked everything. If you email the Miami office Im sure theyll get someone to contact you soon.

                   

                  I purchased the Diamond package and Im not sure what kind of chair decorations theyll have. The WC is there to make everything go smoothly for you so Im sure if you tell her that you want your ceremony decoration moved to the reception area, shell do it with no problem.

                   

                  Im planning on just using the sashes for the reception decor only.

                    Any questions I had in the beginning I asked Yesenia.  She was really great in responding to any questions I had.  She was who I depended on for all of my answers because I hadn't yet found this fabulous site :o)   I think it is too early for us to really get much of a response from a WC.  I don't really think you get much response until the date gets closer, which I why I just asked Yesenia everything.

                     

                    It really does feel so good to take the time to read through the whole thread!  It took me a few days, but you really do learn a lot from it!  I just sent you the spa/salon menu that you asked for, and I have a few other documents if you want them!

                     

                    What package did you choose?

                      Me too!  Wilma is awesome.....sometimes I feel like I am annoying her, because we go back and forth so much
