So I was also told that all the white fabric, etc was not included and we had opted against doing it for that reason - to our suprise when we arrived there, our on-site coordinator Diana told us it was standard and we didnt' pay anything.
As for picking and confirming all the details - I had done it beforehand, but they make you pick it all out again when you get there anyways, so I wouldn't worry about it - you dont even see Damarys or speak to her once you get there - so by not responding she causes us brides some unnecessary stress Don't worry, you're wedding will be perfect! PIcs are on their way!

The menu part stressed me out a bit as well!! We picked the Hacienda in the end as we could get the fajitas with chicken, beef and shrimp - so that people who didn't like fish or didn't eat beef or whatever the situation was could still enjoy their supper! It turned out to be a hit and there was so much food and it was all so good! Personally, we tried the Seafood and MISO a la cartes, and I think the consensus of the group (who tried all the a la cartes in the end) was that the Hacienda and the Fondue were the two best ones - the thing with Fondue though is that its a very slow process Seafood was probably my least favourite - I didn't eat the salmon, but I heard that was good though! At MISO, the turkey dish of all things seemed to be the favourite
One other thing we were worried about with the a la carte was that it wouldn't be private - but they put us in the back away from everyone so we did have privacy for the group which was so nice!
Hope this helps!!!

First of all, congrats again to both of you and thanks so much to both of you for the info! We all really appraciate it!!!!!!!!!!!! Your weddings really seem to have gone perfectly!
I'm really glad to hear about the free white veils on the gazebo because I was ready to pay for it :-) So I won't pay and I'll make my arrangements once I get there....
I'm very happy to hear that you had a good set up at the Le Fleur restaurant because that's the one I chose to do the reception dinner... Did you meet with the restaurant manager the night before to requst the U shape table arragement? What did they use for center pieces? Did they use the flowers from the gazebo or did you have to buy extra ones? Did you have to preselect itmes on the menu or could everyone choose what they wanted to eat?
How did it work for your hair? Did you girls make an appointment at the hair salon at the resort? If so, did you make it ahead of time with Damary or did you just book once you got there? Did you go for a tryout before or was it just good on the day of?
Thanks again so much for all your insights!

At the a la cartes, my understanding is you have to pick a set menu for the whole group - that's why I did the Mexican, b/c I had beef, chicken and shrimp -that way everyone was happy!
The table decorations were the ones off the gazebo, which were beautiful!
As for my hair - I am pretty lucky that my sister is a hairdresser, so I can't tell you about the hotel salon, but I've read other reviews that have said that they did a good job
Hope that helps - the on-site wedding coordinators there are so great, you wont' have to worry about a thing!

I am getting married on the Riviera side. I am assuming their policies and procedures are the same. One thing I am confused about is how the reception thing works. Do you have to pay for it? From looking at the information they gave, it appears we have to pay. Was your reception dinner free? Also, I would love to see pictures of your wedding. Can you send them to me? email@example.com
