      We picked the Steakhouse for the wedding dinner since from the pictures I have seen that seemed to be the most private. Most of our guests are big steak fans so it was a win win. However, my FI and I are not. That was one of the questions I had for the WC since we wanted to request chicken for our dinner, steak for everyone else except for FI's parents and kids. FI's parents do not eat meat on Fridays so we had to request fish for them. I also asked about a kid's menu and she said they offer chicken nuggets, hamburgers, pizza or pasta for the kids. She said we could placecards so the servers would know who got which dish. I thought it might be an issue to do the special meal requests since they require having the pre-selected menu. She also said the appetizers and desserts are buffet style. We haven't decided if we are doing a rehearsal dinner just for parents and wedding party, or a welcome dinner after the rehearsal for all guests staying at the resort or what. If do a dinner though I think we are going to pick the Italian restaurant for that.

      I also asked if they could do a cupcake tower for the cake. Araceli was going to check with the chef to see if they could do it, and was going to let me know. OTherwise, she said an outside baker could do that, but it would be an additional charge. I really like the cupcake tower cakes, but I don't know how I feel about paying extra money for one since we get the standrad cake in the package so I'm still debating on that. I guess it will depend on how much the cupcake tower would be.

      Another question I had was regarding the table decorations and centerpieces. They do not have colored linens so any napkins, table runners, etc. that you would want you would need to bring them. She was going to ask the florist if they had clear glass vases for the floral arrangements for the table centerpieces so I wouldn't have to bring more glas items down with me. Any candles or other centerpiece items you need to provide. I did buy clear glass starfish shaped tealight holders, and small tealight holders that I am bringing, but I felt like the tables needed more decoration. I don't know what I want to do though, and I really don't want to have to bring more stuff with me. Has anyone thought about centerpiece ideas yet?
      Michelle,

      When did you start communicating with the WC regarding the actual details?

        I have been asking the WC at del mar questions since we booked. Normally it takes her a day or two to get back to me, but she always responds. I have asked her for pictures of flowers for the bouquets, the restaurants and the decor in the private reception.

          I think it might just seem long seeing it in writing. The WC said the ceremony only takes about 20 minutes.

          I just sent them an email at the end of last week and they got back to me pretty quick. She sent me a document to start putting notes in of what our selections are. My TA had forwarded me some pics of bouquets that other brides had used. I don't know if they are specifically for Lindo weddings, but I can try to post those if anyone wants to see them. They are on my computer at home.

            I wouldn't mind seeing what you have - no big rush though.

            Can I just say how great it is to have fellow Iberostar brides to talk to! The Iberostar wedding board has a lot of great resort/vendor info etc., but not so much on the actual planning.

            A question on the forum though - When I try to view people's public profiles it says I can't. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Anyone know?

              I'll try to post the pics tomorrow for ya. I'm not sure about the public profile's. I can't access them either so maybe it is not set up?
