Hey FranticBride.. how are ya??
I have to say that my planning is actually almost done. I have a few things to take care of here, like get our rings, the wedding topper, order the shot glasses, buy a couple outfits, work a litte on the music but other than that things are smooth. (knock on wood)
I have had my fair share of stressful events working with the hotel, but I think things are really coming together nicely. I just hope that everything keeps running this smoothly once were there..eeekkk
For our reception decor I am using Julieta. I am getting her to decorate the gala room and I am using the hotel for my wedding day bouqets. She is coming and placing 3 different size vases on each table, with a red rose submerged in the vases, topped with candles and then rose petals around the table. My wedding flowers are roses so I want to keep it simple but with a little pop of color. I am going to order personalized napkins and shot glasses so I can add those to the table to give it a bit more color. I was thinking of renting red sashes, but as I was looking at red wedding receptions decor with red chair sashes it was a little much. I was also worried that the gala room was going to be plain as they only inlcude white chair covers and white decor, but i think it will all work out. A little is better than too much, you know what I mean.
I went to my gfs wedding in the Dominican 2 years ago, and she ended up having her reception indoors due to weather, and she didnt even have centerpieces or decor and it looked fine. The hotel ended up putting out a vase with some rocks on the table because they screwed up her flowers a bit, but it was even that big of a deal. The room was just filled with so much fun and laughter she didnt even notice they had centerpieces.. lol.
Are you bringing anything down with you? (shot glasses, napkins, etc)
What are you doing for favors?
You did programs and name cards?? Thats great! im jealous. I was thinking of doing that too, but I only have about 43 guests so I really didnt want to have to go into the gala room and figure out where to place all the cards. Who is going to place at the tables for you? Do you have a seating chart?
I am just going to make 2 signs that say reserved, put those on the tables and those will be for family and the rest of my guests all know eachother so they can sit wherever.
Where did u get your programs and place cards done?
Where the expensive?
And thanks for reminding me about the spa.. shoot! I totally forgot that I need to book tmy wedding day services. Ill email them this week.
They havent responded to you? When did you email them?
I emailed them a few weeks ago for some pricing and they were quick to respond. Maybe there having a busy week.
So how are things on your end? How is your planing? Any stress from the hotel, or are things good? Are we all going to try to meet up down there???

What kind of decorations is she setting up for you? I"m worried that the Crystal Room might be a bit plain. I've decided to go with the hotel flowers (they've made some changes to the bouquet I wanted), but we're getting flowers by Marvin to do our centrepieces (I think...) Other then that, I don't really have any decorations, except the programs and name card's that I"m making.
Do you have anything else on your to do list?
I was also trying to get ahold of the spa to book hair and make up but they're not responding to my emails. I"ve met Emma know. I always wear my hair the same way (ponytail or straight), so it wouldn't work for me if the spa didn't make my appt!
Hope everythings going well!
