    Natasha,

     

    If you do it in the Italian restaurant in the room all to yourselves are you allowed to have a dance floor & DJ?  I was told that if we weren't booking private then we wouldn't be able to have those, but, maybe in there we would.  this new girl takes even longer to reply then Nadia. AAAHHHHH! 

     

    we chose the "flowers round" cake.  what do you think that you are going to go with?  also, we chose the BlueBay 07 for flowers.  I am still deciding on the center pieces...has anyone chosen one??  I don't know what to go with

        I was just down at the resort and met both of Nadia's replacements and I am quite sad that Nadia will no longer me in charge.  My wedding is over 100 people and i'm just not sure the new girls are ready to handle it.    I didnt take a ton of pictures but if anyone has any questions or is looking for a particular image let me know....

          Staciw,

          Would you mind putting up a few pics?

           

          Did you get to see what the set-up for the wedding will look like?

           

          I have not picked a centrepiece yet but it is on my list of things to do today.

           

          I am assuming you are doing a private reception or are they letting you have a semi-private one?

            I will try and get some pictures up for you ladies.  

             

            Unfortunately there wasn't a wedding while we were there but the spot where the ceremonies are is BEAUTIFUL!!  

             

            We chose to do mostly calla lilies for our arrangements as they are simple and pretty.  We were also able to discuss some custom things we wanted to do with fruit (limes, prickly pears, apples) and they were quite flexible.  Because our wedding is so large they didnt have linens for me to choose form other than just white so I am actually bringing some burlap table clothes with me to go over the white ones.  I am also bringing a bunch of votive candles with me as i can find them for a very low price in NYC.  They have no problem at all setting up anything additional that you may bring down with you.

             

            We are having a private reception for the wedding in the breakfast buffet restaurant which is right by the ceremony site.  That was one big thing we realized while we were there was just how big the resort is.  All of the dinner restaurants are at the front of the resort near the lobby and it is a 10 min walk (maybe a little more) to the beach.  

             

            We are also having two semi-private events on Thursday and Friday.  The space they refer to as the Italian restaurant has this back area which is around a corner from the main dining room.  As we have about 40 people for our rehearsal dinner the space is perfect for that and we were able to reserve it from 6-8.  Another thing we learned while there is that there are only three a la carte restaurants and they just change nightly what type of cuisine is being served (i.e steak, seafood, mexican, french, italian).  Then we are having a welcome party which will be held on the deck outside the dinner restaurants, if you have seen pictures it has lounge furniture and what i would call a moat around it.

              Do you have to pay extra for the welcome party and rehearsal dinner?  Or could you reserve the space right now for those events?

                We are having to pay per person on the welcome party we are having, not quite as much as the cocktail hour since we aren't having passed trays. We are not paying to have a private rehearsal dinner though, and yes we already have it rewarded. When is your wedding?

                  OMG.  SOOOO glad that the explosion wasn't at our resort.  I almost booked my wedding at the Grand Riviera Princess.

                      I wouldn't be scared.  These sorts of accidents can happen anywhere.  Back in June a similar thing happened in Edmonton in a house.
