    The gazebo set up with white and fuxia fabrics, the 2 flowers poles on the corner, the aisle arrangments and the rose petals were under the resposability of the florist Maya Floral.

    The chairs sashes are under the responsability of the wedding coordinator but in my case I have taken from home.

    Right now, I have my ceremony being held on the beach, and the reception being held in the pool/gazebo area . .however, I am willing to move the reception if I need to accomodate moving the chairs :)!  I am hand making part of the decor and the thought of making double the amount coupled with everything else on my plate and my full time job freaks me out, LOL!

      Does SMB provide the wedding dinner menus and place cards, or it that the bride's responsibility to bring those?  (as you can see, I am clueless!! LOL)

       

      I found these photos on the Sandals Martha Stewart Weddings site... Do you think SMB could replicate this look for me??  I love the idea of the hanging "curtain" of flowers or shells or whatever...  :)

      I LOVE this look too . . I was actually looking at bringing my own hanging curtain of crystals  . .find them on shopwildthings.com fairly inexpensive!!!  Does anyone know what the resort would charge to re-create this?

        I would just talk to Cecilia then, and see what she says. They are flexible and I am sure there are a number of factors that go into it.

        Thanks . .I know that is the best idea, but I feel like I get conflicting answers from her also :)! Perhaps if I explain it outright and suggest the spaces I have chosen as compared to double sashes she will understand better.  Poor Cecilia and the gazillion emails I have already sent her. Honestly, I think I have changed our contract more than 20 times already.  But, I guess thats her job, right :)!  I have been so undecisive and this site has really helped me make some concrete decsions, thank goodness!

          They can print menus for you but I can't remember if there is a fee.... I believe they print them on plain paper that just says secrets at the top. I brought my own menus and place cards because I didn't want them to be plain and it was just an easy DIY thing that I was able to do.

            Yes, there could be some miscommunication. I wouldn't move my reception if I were you though. The gazebo and barracuda terrace are the prettiest options.

                Oh okay - I guess I need to be doing that too...  Did you just order them or did you actually print them yourself from a home printer?  I am thinking of designing them using VistaPrint - has anyone used them?  I can always add ribbons, bling, etc., but need someone to print them for me, I think.  I am open to any and all suggestions from everyone.
