    I love the cake! I was wondering about the ribbon too. I am going to bring ribbon just in case. I figured for $3, I might as well. I asked N about that and never got a response...

Does it look really bad when taking it off to cut the cake? I don't get it. If it is cloth ribbon, what size shoudl it be to look nice? I like the cake in the photo below.

      You girls are too kind, thank you for all your awesome comments :)

       

      My bouquet came with Ivory ribbon wrapped around it. I too was confused about cake 1 with the ribbon on it, I assume they provide their own ribbon but not sure how to cut through it... I brought large edible pearls to have placed on every layer instead of the ribbon though.

       

      As far as upgrading to Excellence Club... We very very much enjoyed it but I doubt we will ever do it again. You get liquor in your room and there is a private club house you go to for all high quality liquor and finger foods. We never once went to the private EC pool and we only went to the EC clubhouse because we wanted to get our monies worth! Other than that, if you dont do the EC, you will never know the difference.

       

      We had room 2402 non EC at first and we loved that room the most. Even over the 9456 room that we begged for b/c its the resort marketing room (best room/view at the resort).

       

      As far as private beach wedding, I dont think there is a such thing... People are able to come and go on the beach as they wish and the wedding I watched from my balcony (another thing, ppl can watch from their rooms easy) there were sail boats and jet skis going back and forth during her ceremony. You can see the beach from just about anywhere on the resort, so moving it may not help... However, people are usually respectful of your privacy... I had no idea if anyone was near our wedding, but then later in the week ppl would come up to us and tell us they watched our wedding.  You will be so wrapped in the moment, you may not even notice onlookers.

       

      Congrats to all the brides coming up!!! So exciting!!

        Thanks lciz. I figured as much about the EC but I wanted to hear of 1st hand from a bride who has experienced it. Plus I started to realize that even some EC rooms are not in beach view. And we were only staying EC for 6 days so we didn't get the free wedding. We were paying fill price for our wedding pckg anyway. I really appreciate all of your help. You were a beautiful bride. Your makeup was also awesome. I'm a big makeup fan. Thx K

          I finally heard from Nayeli tonight and she answered all my questions...of course, her answers just prompted more questions so now I'm back to waiting for a response from her again! At least I'll see her in 2 weeks and I can ask her things face to face. I need to start making a list of my questions now!

            I just got an answer from Nayeli about this...we have "ribbon" too. We asked if the chef could do burgundy piping that looks like ribbon...not sure how to cut it. She said that someone had recently done that and by the time they cut the cake the fake ribbon had melted because it was so hot! She suggest bringing ribbon and said that cutting it wouldn't be a problem because it is not attached to the cake. I don't think they take it off when we do our cake cutting, but they probably do when they cut it for the guests. By that time no one sees it so I don't think it matters much.

            And PS...that cake is gorgeous!!

              Lciz you look amazing! Love the pics! We have the house photographers and they do seem to be a bit "loose" when it comes to getting concrete answers on prices...good to know we can negotiate!! Thanks!

                Are any of you ladies changing the ceremony script?

                  I was wondering that same exact thing! Does anyone have a copy of it? I would love to see it!

                    Hi ladies!  I have been reading this whole thread for a few days and wanted to say hi.  I am getting married at EPM in July 2013.  I am so excited and love to see what you all have done/are planning!

                      You may want to ask if they cut the cake!!

                       

                      We had to cut our own cake for our guests :(
