Menu question.....

I am getting ready to begin working on my invitations and I'm wondering if anyone had provided their guests with menu options? Our menu (platinum menu) has options for guests so i'm wondering if I need to put the options in the invitation on an RSVP card so I can provide final numbers to Landy when I arrive? Or is it more laid back and the servers just ask the guests what they want at the tables? Please let me know. Thanks!

Tiffany,

Hi, have you checked with Landy or Lizet if your guests can choose options? From what Landy told me, we (bride and groom) have to choose one dish from each section (app, soup, salad, entree, dessert). Our choice will be what everyone gets with the exception of any vegetarians.

Sunbride,

As always, thank you for your advice about the timing. Sounds like what I have will work out fine!

Aslo, where did you order your flower girl basket from?

Thanks!

Carina-

Thanks for the imput on the DJ, my FI and I are not big dancers so I am glad someone else agrees that it might not be worth it. I want to be able to have our first dance, a dance with my dad, the traditional dances ect.

I am going with a starfish theme for my wedding and my sister is wearing turqouise and my niece a off white dress (to match mine) with a turqouise bow (to match my sister) so I was able to find a basker with turqouise and starfish on the web. See the link below, there are a few others I had found too, if you want I can post those too.

My ceremony start time will be at 4:30. Sandra (former WC) told me that was ideal to give us enough time to take pictures and start dinner around sunset. My timeline is ceremony 4:30pm, cocktail hour 5:00-6:00pm, Reception and Dancing 6-10:30pm and then a bonfire from 10:30 on.

I haven't checked with Landy or Lizet yet. I wasn't sure I would be able to get a clear answer from them so thought I would try here first. It is so confusing because our menu selection is broken up into 4 groups and each grouping has 2 entrees...I'll try to email Lizet tomorrow. Please let me know if anyone knows otherwise. Thanks!!

I just posted in the newbie forum and wanted to post here too.

 

I'm an imposter DT bride for the time being, while we await the final details from the TA (I have my heart set though, so *fingers crossed* I'll be a DT bride-to-be by the end of the week!!

 

We're hoping for the first week of May (2nd-9th). According to the things I've read, the earliest I can be married there is May 7th (thursday), which, coincidentally, is my 27th birthday. The 8th would work too. Still have to book though, and noticed there is a May 7th on this forum so I'm not sure.

 

Username MarryingMyBestFriend

Names (optional, first names only) Laura And Scott

Date & Time 1st week of May, 2009

Wedding package - not sure yet

Wedding extras (and cost charged) - boys golf trip, something fun for the girls (TBD), and a group excursion (possibly boat cruise/dinner/drinks). Love the idea of a bonfire though too!

Type of ceremony - Symbolic

Coordinator - not sure yet...

Number of guests - thinking 30-50 will RSVP, we'll see!

Ceremony location - beach

Reception location -hoping beach

Photographer - not sure

Videographer - resort

glad you found us Laura! Send an email to Lizet and get your date ASAP. Ask for a few dates-May is a crazy busy month for them. I'm getting married May 2 2009. They do have 2 weddings a day so you never know! good luck-there is some great information as well as some great brides to help you through the process!

Hello ladies - I have not had a chance to post in a while again but here I am - just one month before we are off to Tulum and I am sooo excited!!! I think 4:30pm will give you PLENTY of time before the sunset - we are having our ceremony at 5:30 and expect that to have plenty of time for cocktail hour and pics as well. Reception and fun will continue on through the night.... Anyone else going to be there in the first week of October? I do see a lot of November brides but I thought we did have a few people that were right around the corner as well.

Hope all is well with everyone - I am looking forward to getting back into chatting with everyone in the next few weeks.

According to our list (somehow you weren't on it, so I just added you) there are no brides for September (boo for us, although smart decision on behalf of brides to avoid the worst month for hurricanes) and 5 in Oct. I don't think we've seen trisha0612 on here for a while, and I think Piggy only made a brief appearance a few months ago (although I could be mistaken, it's hard to keep track of everyone).

trisha0612 - October 10, 2008

On a related note, I think everyone should put up an avatar picture! Not necessarily a pic of you but some random little icon or picture or something. It makes it so much easier to recognize people. Am I alone in this? I know that for some people I remember their avatars more than their names.

Oh, and of course, welcome to our new member "marryingmybestfriend". Hope everything works out for you!
