      menu - no idea yet but we're sticking with the gold menu - any advice?

       

      flowers and decor rented from Planner 1 Events and Mayan Floral - wood tables with matching tiffany chairs, lanterns and lots of battery operated candles - pretty simple.

       

      Hmmm...those are the main details I think.

       

      If anyone has any final words of advice please send them my way!  I leave this Sunday.

       

      Wow, you have 100% under control all the details!!

      Now you have to relax and enjoy the last days as unmarried girl :-)))

      We are wainting for you soon with a tons of pictures and review

          Did anyone buy wedding insurance?  We put down the deposit today so I am breathing a sigh of relief & getting even more excited (if that is possible and we still have a year to go!!!) YaY!!! 

           

          I would love to hear your summary of a Dec wedding after you get back Jen Eeson!!!  Congratulations!!!  I'm sure everything will go fabulously!!!

           

          ConnieMac the Lanterns are as follows. 

          30 round white lamps $550 +11% tax

          20 round white lamps $450 + 11% tax

          10 round white lamps $350 +11% tax

           

          I think we are going to go with the lamps, when I asked Cecilia about 20 vs 30 she said that people typically go with 30 and she didn't have a picture of 20 lamps.  Not sure if that is a trying to get us to spend more, but I figured I would wait until I get a bit further in the process (and see how much I have to spend) to then make that decision.

              Hey Jen, you recently asked about back up in case of bad weather. I have some advice to offer. I would find out which restaurant will be closed. For my wedding (it poured like crazy that day) they were going to put us in the Japanese restaurant. I was devastated bc it's incredibly dark and wasn't what I was wanting for my wedding at all. It was the only option bc another wedding had taken the other back up. Luckily it cleared up by the time wedding started and I pushed to set up outside even though they were pushing for the Japanese restaurant.

              So, basically, upstairs on the balcony all the way to the end (outside of the lobby bar area) on the opposite side from the restaurant (italian and french) there was a wedding reception going on actually on the balcony in the rain. That side is a covered balcony and it's far enough away from the lobby bar to have privacy. It looked great, they had music set up and were still able to be outside.

               

              Just wanted to bring that up to you to check out in case... '

              Best wishes to you! It's a beautiful resort and lots of fun!!

                Jen, heels on the beach sounds dangerous! Even with the isle.....I personally would not want to risk it.....

                    Thanks Beach Bride!!  Ya I'm thinking I might have to splurge on the wood isle.  

                     

                    Does anyone have info about renting a tent?  I can't seem to get a straight answer from Cecilia.
