    Ohhh... good, I am hoping to keep costs from escalating lol.  I originally thought I would go with the free package, that didn't last very long.

      Hi Ladies-

      I have a couple of questions. Our wedding is July 12, and we are expecting about 18-25. We are doing the Ultimate Package. I am torn between reception on the beach or by the small pool. If it is windy I don't want sand in peoples food, but on the other hand it might feel good in the middle of July. I love the idea of dinner on the beach, but just don't know if it would be a disaster or not. Also, I think we will just use an iPod for music (I don't foresee much dancing with this crowd...) but will a docking station be loud enough on the beach or will waves drown it out? Should we rent their sound system? It's a lot of money... I think we are using an outside guitarist/vocalist for the ceremony and cocktail hour, I thought I would have the Mexican trio at the end of dinner as a surprise. Any thoughts? I'm kind of rambling, I know. 

      Thanks!!

        I decided not to do the beach because I was concerned of the sand/food thing too. Who are you using as your outside guitarist?

          We heard her at another resort- and I got her card- and now I can't find it. When I do I will tell you her name! Fingers crossed that I find it, I haven't emailed her yet!

            Hi Ladies!

             

            I'm new to this thread.. considering this resort for my fall 2014 wedding. Anyone have any suggestions for a catamaran for groups with a price range? thanks!

              So, by looking online at wedding cake pictures.. I'm thinking of getting a cake elsewhere.

               

              I used to day this wasn't important to me, but now I'm thinking... I'm a cake decorator, I can't have an ugly wedding cake... that's tragic!

               

              I also used to say I don't understand how bridezillas can happen... but my goodness, it's easy!  I had a horrible experience with my dress, there's been the odd mixup with the TA but she turned out to be really great in the end, family drama drama drama... yiiiikes.

               

              But back to the topic of cakes, anyone have an opinion on this?  I'm just thinking something small... but maybe the resort cakes aren't so bad, the booklet looks OK, I wonder how much the real life cake looks like the picture though.

                To be honest cake isn't at the top of my list, but I think simple is better...I think the cakes don't look as nicely executed when they do something out of the box.  I think a simple 3 tier cake just decorated with some flowers on top is both simple and elegant. I'm not a fan of the ribbon and what not some people use. I know you're a cake decorator, but you said it yourself that most people don't even eat the cake...and I didn't even see the cake at the last wedding I attended. We bought to-go boxes in white and as well as some pretty personalized labels from vista print and will give our guests the option of taking the cake with them since our package also includes dessert (something to keep in mind). What about if you did a rehearsal dinner cake? That way most people see it, you can get very imaginative with a cake and find one at a local bakers, and you can avoid the vendor fee. I for-one would just spend the money elsewhere.

                    Awesome thanks! My guitarist never answered my latest email and I don't feel comfortable not having a contract so I may contact her as well. Not really looking for singing though just instrumental. If any bride in the past has a guitar contact I would be most appreciative (the resort musician is ridiculously priced at over $500 for a half hour ceremony.
