    Nicola! I love that Friends episode! Hair inspiration is really pretty!

    Hey Katie- I see that on the 'Caprice' package, which is the one I assume you got because of your guest #- it says that the ceremony setup includes 'natural' flowers... what did it include? On the Royal package for 40 or less, it just says it includes decoration set up, which I assume is just the chairs...

      My hair is awful, its frizzy, wavey, straight & curly all in one and to wear it down in a hot country is a no no.... takes me 2 hours to get it right for a night out here at home!!

      Wouldnt mind wearing it down but i would only end up looking like Monica from friends when they are in barbados!! Haha :-)

      Nicola- I have the SAME problem as you! I love your inspiration picture. Can you email it to me at vlvetter7@hotmail.com?

      Thanks so much!

        jrb- Chilli's is where I had my reception and I actually had the choice of two different buffets at no extra cost; one was International (which I picked) and the other was Mexican. The International actually had a good balance between meat and "non-meat" items, such as lasagna, rice, and even french fries. We went to Bota Fogo one night, which was more focused on meat, since it is a Brazilian BBQ. They walk around with different types of meat and serve it to each person.

        Jannae- The natural flowers that were included were two pieces (real flowers) for the ceremony and two bags of rose petals. Like I mentioned before though, we ended up purchasing additional pieces for the ceremony and more rose petals to put on the tables at the reception. They also offer fake flower pieces for the ceremony, which I don't think are an additional cost...and they actually look real in pictures, but I didn't see them in person.

            Thanks Katie! Sorry I'm a dunce here- by pieces does that mean an arrangement of some sort?

            I am just freaking out a little about this because we now have 42-44 people coming, and the next package price up is 570! Seems like so much more to pay, even though it includes hair and stuff. But I had a flower budget with the lower package, so if I can eliminate that....

            I hate the budget. But it certainly makes sitting in this cubicle silghtly more bearable

                  Yes, there are hairdryers in the room, and they actually work pretty good too...I ended up bringing one, but ended up using the one in the room most of the time instead.

                  Jannae- Sorry, yes I meant arrangements, lol! I was actually thinking I should have worded it differently when I re-read my post. What wedding package do you have right now?

                  Samira- Since you're having a private reception I really bet you'll get the earlier time. Like I said, I didn't even have to ask for it...Ael just emailed me back one day and said the reception will start at 7pm. I wouldn't worry too much about it until you tell her what your plans our for the reception...see what happens when she emails you back.

                      Katie- thanks for the info! I have already started getting things together for the trip and I feel like I am going to be overpacking VERY badly, so I am trying to figure out all the things I can leave out! Any packing advice?
