I tried to include a little bit of everything so you can see different parts of the wedding, including hair, flowers, decorations, etc. We had the reception in the gazebo and had the cocktail hour on the terrace of the Tropical Restaurant and had the reception inside the Tropical Restaurant. Everything turned out amazing! Let me know if you have any questions! Stina168@aol.com

I am still slightly peeved that they didn't decorate my arch fully, oh well though haha. Can't wait to read your review! :)
            Thank you! We used the Iberostar florist. I was so happy the flowers turned out well - that was something I was pretty nervous about, so thanks again for warning me about the arch. The bouquets were pretty much what I asked for, but the flower arrangements were different, but I liked them better than what I requested! I thought they did a fabulous job! I asked an outside florist how much it would be to fully cover the arch in bougainvillea and they quoted me like $300, and the Iberostar only charged $60! So glad I didn't go with the outside florist, but Charlie did have to tell them to add more flowers to the arch at the ceremony since they tried to put just a few arrangements on there. I don't know what their deal is with that!

              Well as of today we are back to tropical not being available for my reception and i leave sunday. After assuring me del mar will be open by then. i'm so glad it all worked out for you, but this past mth has been aweful for us. and they do nothing but tell me it' not then it is..."i will get back with you" and never do. no respponses from e mail, i have called days in a row before i get anyone. who wants to show up with 36 guests and not even know where anything is being held. this shoul be a exciting time not torture
              Oh Gail, I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this! I know how frustrating that is. I'm sure everything will come together.

                What hotel will you be staying in? They told me that the Beach is re-opening on June 1st and that the Del Mar will be reopening on the 15th. Are they moving you into the Beach hotel or will you be getting an upgrade to the Maya / Lindo?

                Did she happen to mention when the Del Mar will be opening?

                I am sorry this is such a nightmare for you! I honestly believe that once you get there it will all work out perfectly and you won't be nearly as stressed out as you are at home!

                    You're welcome again! I'm just so glad I was able to share my experience with you girls so you don't make the same mistakes I did...so far, so good by the sounds of it! You're lucky you had someone speak up about your arch, if I would have known about it, I would have told DH to make sure they decorated it properly but live and learn I suppose haha. Your flowers turned out fabulous!! Yeah, I don't know why they have a problem covering their whole arch, that's how they make it look in all the gazebo pics they send, it is incredibly misleading.

                    Gail - If you want I can post a pic I have of us eating at the Steakhouse, bear in mind that I didn't bother decorating it or anything special like that, but I have seen pics of the Tropical (practically identical to the Steakhouse) decorated and it looks amazing. I only have like one or two pics so it probably won't show you much though.
