Crap, so that means I have to find out what everyone wants to eat by phone or email! UGH!
I had no idea about the flowers. They had sent me a word doc of pictures but said they would have a new one so I really havent picked anything. I know with the gold package some of the bouquets are included. Not sure which type of flowers though... I really just want tropical pink & orange with some yellow. I have not heard from the resort since the last time I emailed them which was back in August. Guess I should get on that! I have no idea what I need now! lol!
Our rsvp deadline was November only because our room group rate was up then. As of now everyone has replied BUT that doesnt mean they are coming if they said yes. I had a few people book the room & then get their money back & cancel. What can ya do right.
We are flying out of Philly & I have been watching the air prices like a maniac since last February!! It was holding at $503 then went up to $610 before xmas then after went to $650 now its at $667!!!! I thought it was going to DROP now but it hasnt...and I dont think it will since gas prices are expected to raise again. It really sucks and I know some of my guests booked the room only & was waiting on air to drop. Hope that means they wont drop out too It just stinks because you really have no idea what it will be like even tomorrow.

I believe you need to pick out the menu ahead of time and tell them who is having what. The next step is making a seating chart for them. We had the menu choices on our reply card with the invitations. If you pick one menu then there's no need for a seating chart. We have several fish eating vegitarians so we had to do some adjusting.
Are you seeing crazy high flight prices?? I live close to Philly and most of our guests are coming from PHL or the NY airports. Prices are outrageous right now! I think it's holding some people back from committing. We have an rsvp deadline of Feb 11th and we are still waiting for over half of the guests replies!
Question....how do you feel about their choice of flowers?? When we were there in September, we met with the florist and had everything worked out. Now there's a new vendor....prices higher and NOT the options we chose...I'm getting worried!
Yep, we got the DJ for the reception. I have no idea who it is. It was DJ Mannia back when we first signed but who knows if they have changed another item there. UGH
We didnt want to have to worry about making an entire playlist for an ipod, making sure there were enough songs on it, that no one takes control & starts skipping, renting speakers etc... We are big music people & I want everyone up & dancing! I think it will be more memorable then just having an ipod playing but that's just my opinion! But I am sure if you cancel the DJ it will still be amazing. We just dont want to have to worry about that too! lol. You could probably rent or borrow the mic with the speakers. OH or just bring an ipod dock system then you wont need speakers. And if anyone wants to speak just have them talk loud!
