      I can't find this anywhere really---how far in advance can you let them know where you want the reception? I'm worried about other brides wanting the same one...

        ok for girls that have been married. I sent a pic of my bouquet of cally lilly with ribion wrapped around it. Very simple she emailed back saying they are very expensive. Is this true? and how much extra did she charge you?

I was thinking about going on a Tuesday to be there one day early, but then I felt like it would be kind of lame to go to work just one day on Monday and then leave Tuesday. We plan to have some activities for guests planned Wed-Sun, but maybe we should change the travel days to Tuesday-Saturday. Any thoughts?
          Hi suzanne,

          something to maybe consider whilst still in the planning stages is if its cheaper to travel on a particular day or at a particular time of day, your TA should be able to confirm.

          I also think jerzygirl makes a good point about not having too much time to get sunburnt / tan lines before the big day.

Has anyone been allowed to do this? Choose one item from the silver menu even though you have the gold menu?? I have been emailing Landy, Natalia, Aurora and Anabel and none of them have given me a straight answer!!! It's getting to be frustrating since I think this is a very simple question.
            Hi joanna, can you just clear something up for me, are they allowing you to choose two entrees because its considered a buffet style ( which is only allowed for a min of 50 people.) or did you just request it. Thanks

              If it's any help, we surved the Surf & Turf and it was fantastic! Since we got married on good friday we had 3 guests that don't eat meat (well anthing except fish) and they were able to substitute it for the salmon.

                You really don't need to mention it to them until you fill out the forms they send you about 1 month prior to the wedding. It is very flixible to change your mind once you get there also...try not to worry about it too much. Do you have something particular in mind?

I was really hoping they would speed up on the communication now that we're less than two months away.

                  Who gave you the ok for 2 entrees? In case Aurora tells us that we can't, it would be helpful to have the extra info! Thanks for letting us know!
                  I originally asked about the two entrees from Natalia a few weeks ago who agreed that it would be possible as long as we give her a head count before hand. I have also been emailing Landy lately who seems to be the head WC there and she also agreed that I am able to offer only 2 entrees (i tried for 3 but she wouldn't give).

                  FYI, Landy has an out office message stating that she will be away until May 22nd in case you don't hear from her right away.

                    hahaha! I feel the exact same way! My wedding isn't until next year and I already found out there is a wedding an hour before mine and possiby one after as well.

                    I was thinking about emailing the WC now and telling them what locations I want!
