So it was less expensive than the recent one she sent and there was no charge for alcohol.

I intend to f/u with her and will let you all know
Thanks you so much for this!!! I haven't asked Jacy about a welcome dinner yet, but is on my things to do list. I love this menu as well....the one thing I am confused about is, is there an extra charge (18 per person) regardless of if that is just if it is any one of the ala carte restaurants? Do you know if we can go with this menu and not have it in one of those restaurants and if so, where would we have it? TIA!!!

On a side note, I have a friend of a friend who is getting married in May (my wedding isn't until November) so I should have some good insight when she gets back as well (my friend is attending her wedding)! I also visited this resort in December when my fiance and I were deciding on places for our wedding so if anyone has questions I am happy to try to help. I have been traveling a lot for work so haven't been on this board as much lately, but I'll try to get on more.

What are your thoughts on using freeze dried rose petals? We would probably just use them in the gazebo, along the walkway between the chairs, leading up to the table. Do you think they would stay there or blow away? The walls around the gazebo are pretty high, but there are some openings, so I wouldn't want them to have one big gust and blow into a big pile!

It doesn't look like you cannot fit them all in one of the banquet rooms, but it says up to 360 on the beach, so probably.
Bianca,
Thanks much for your response. Talked to Jacy about 3 times today & she said that she could accomodate our party of up to 100 guests but the ceremony must take place on the beach & that our options for the reception is either the ballroom or the beach. She also said that the decision on the reception wouldn't take place until October. I'm okay with the options given & now we're just waiting to get the contract signed. I'm getting excited...but nervous!

Hi Everyone, and congrats to all of u!

 

I just joined and I'm a forum Newbie for sure. I still haven't figured out my way around but I am a DPA bride and thought I should reply to this thread. If anyone has advice on how to navigate the forum, has a good DW checklist, or any advice on marrying at the resort I would appreciate it. I will be wed on November 26, 2009. Any other DPA brides around that time?

Did Lyales get kidnapped in Mexico by the drug cartel or does she just not care to get on this forum any longer? I don't blame her...but I wouldn't ignore you guys! I promise to post all the pics this forum will allow!

Hiya-
Did she give an idea what the reception would like on the beach? Decorations etc?

I plan on using fake rose petals along the walkway (we have a flower girl). I am not sure how windy it will be though. I'm hoping that by having people in the gazebo it would help block at least some of the wind off the ground. I guess we shall see!

Can you use fake petals? I thought there were some eco issues and you had to use either real or freeze dried. Fake/silk are so much cheaper and we could get much more for less... can someone find outhuh.gif
Thanks!!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
