    Bride and Groom have to pre-select one from each course?

    Do you know if i can mix it with two main course (for example, 10 suft and turf and 10 chicken)?

     

    thanks....

     

    We chose one soup, salad, and desert for everyone then gave our guests the option of their main course.  We had stuffed chicken (I think it had chili sauce and cheese inside) and the Surf & Turf (steak and shrimp).  We also had two vegetarians and Valeria arranged for them to have Vegetarian Lasagna.  If you do it this way, you have to give them your choices ahead of time.  You can't give the guests a menu and let them choose at dinner.  Valeria asked for the choices a week ahead of time.  I made place cards for everyone with different colors based on their choice. It was a little extra work but everyone got what they wanted and everyone LOVED the food!

          Hi Funkydoll! For the beach ceremony, Cecilia came to my room before hand and picked up my ipod. They have the dock. I had 4 songs selected to play while guests were being seated. I believe that was enough. I think 30 minutes of music would be plenty.

          • Beach Ceremony - Sound System Service. All i need is download some music on my ipod.. and they have a ipod dock for it? Cecilia picked up my ipod in my room also, right before the ceremony.  I had created a folder for Ceremony music with five subfolders with the music I had selected for easy recognition:

          1) Guest Seating Processional (Marry Me by Train, Somewhere over the Rainbow, and Better Together by Jack Johnson)

          2) Family Processional (My groom walked his family to their seats to "Lord Protect My Child" by Susan Tedeschi)

          3) Wedding Party Entrance  (We had 5 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen and they all walked down paired together to Instrumental Version of "A Little Help From My Friends" - Beatles)

          4) Bride Entrance (Instrumental Version of Crazy Love - Van Morrison)

          5) Recessional (as we kissed, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" by Stevie Wonder)

          •  
          • How many songs i need before the ceremony start? We had three songs for guests seating, which was plenty.
          • I'm debating to upgrade my dinner menu to Platinum... not sure if the resort will charge you for menu tasting? If I am not mistaken, you may choose some items to sample from the menu if you arrive 4 days prior to the event. Or at least, that was how Cecilia explained it to us. We did arrive in ample time to taste and had the same dilemma as you. However, we kept the Gold menu, it was our favorite. 

           

           

          Thanks in advance for those who have an answers for these...

          I might have more questions later..... ;p

            Take extra songs, in my case the translator has a big delay and we didn't have enough songs to cover the entire delay so we have played 2-3 times .

              I can't thank you enough for the quick responses from the ladies!!!

               

              More questions from me...

              • Anyone had purchased/seen the "COOL FIREWORK"?  it's optional for $280.50, not sure how long would it last or if it worth the price...
              • Lighting at the Gazebo area.  Not sure if there's enough light for dinner reception there?
              • "Lightings for tables is $40 each"... anyone had done that... please send me picture for reference
              • or my another option is "Pole with 12 white round lamps" for $200 (lpls send me picture if you had this b4)
              • Cocktail hours will be on the beach... do you know if there will be seating provided on the site?

               

              thanks.....funkydoll
