      Brooke,

      If Landy can save the Tulle for a couple of weeks I would love to use it. Also, I would be happy to pay for a portion of the tulle if I am able to use it. I just saw some Tulle Chair Bows at Organza Sash. The bows end up being less than a dollar each.

      What were you planning on having for the gazebo? I was thinking of something similar to SunBride's ceremony. Adding that bit of tropical pink makes everything looks so good!

      Let me know what you think....

        Theresa,

        Thank you for the review and posting your pictures they were great!!!

        I am a little worried about the photographer. I am using the Resort Photographer but am now having second thoughts. I was going for a very relaxed atmosphere and wedding but I hope I am not making everything too relaxed!

        FYI...Landy finally responded back to me about exchanging services. Since my brother is officiating our ceremony, I was not going to need their minister service, which comes with the Ultimate Package. I asked Landy if I can exchange the minister service ($450) and get the Sound System Service for my iPod ($150) instead. She replied that they normally do not exchange services but would make the exception...score!

          Carina I am also planning on using the resort photog and am a little nervous. We have some amateur photographers that will be with us so I'm hoping they will capture everything if the photog misses it.

          Thanks for the great review. Every one helps us even more!

          Whose wedding is up next??

            I will make sure Landy knows to save the tulle and any of my other decorations that you might want to use, I am leaving most of it down there. I am going to post a planning post soon, so I will have pics of everything I have. No need to pay for any of it, I was going to leave it anyway!

            I am going to do the same gazebo set up as SunBride. I really like the organza chair sashes, and they are actually on sale now! I bought two rolls of the smaller tulle for bows, but whoever sets up will have to tie them. I would just need to order 3 packs of the bows...I'll have to think about that one, I might just keep the tulle I have and let them make the bows. Either way, I'll have them. How many will be at your wedding?

              Tiffany,
              Thanks for your post, you have actually made me feel better about keeping the resort photographer. I'm sure everything will come out great.


              Brooke,

              That sounds great, thanks! I have 30 ppl coming.


              Also, if anyone needs to buy sun parasols, I bought some at Party supplies, crafts, party decorations, toys: Oriental Trading. 3 for $15 plus S&H. Or if you live close to San Franciso, you can find some in China Town for about $4 each.

                  style would be 01 appetizer, 01 salad , 03 Main courses and 03 desserts****

                  and the cost was $55 per person. I got the Gold Menu. The new guide now states that it is $65 per person.

                  Landy told us that wording meant over 50 people, but we said that in USA it meant 50 people or less. She called someone while we were there and they said we could do it without paying for the diff of 7 people. In addition, we also had all 3 entrees as listed in the wedding guide, where now the buffet menu has changed. This is the new Golden Buffet menu
                  Golden Buffet Menu

                  Salads

                  Grilled vegetables antipasti with basil oil
                  Mushrooms Bruschetta with fresh tomato
                  Shrimps Cocktail with spicy mango dressing

                  Asparagus cream with parmesan cheese grissini

                  Main Course

                  Beef medallions and mushrooms in red wine sauce

                  Blueberry mousse

                  Fruits napoleon
                  Thanks for answering the question about the buffet--yes, I have always noticed their wrong wording--nice that they made that adjustment for you... wonder if they would for others.

                    In regards to the photographer, he took great pictures, he just wasn't around long enough. Be specific about what you want and make sure he takes them all. The wedding packages do not mention how long the photogrpahers will be around for so maybe ask Landy as well. Also, not sure what we were thinking, but we didn't tip him up front. We did everyone else, but completely forgot about the photographer. So if you throw some money at him that may help as well.
