    Wondering if some one could help answer a question about the wedding Registration form. I figure i would get a quicker answer from someone here who has already filled it out. The part that reads "under which marital property system you want to be married"? A) Community property system or B) Common Law property system.

    We are doing a legal ceremony. Can someone please tell me what these mean and which i should be choosing.

     

    Thanks so much! :)


    This is direct from the resort

     

    1)      What is the difference between these 2 for legal weddings? TH FIRST ONE.. IS ONCE THEY GET MARRIAGE , EVERYTHING WILL BE SHARING , SUCH AS HOUSE, CAR ETC.

    2)      THE SECOND ONE .. EACH PARTY WILL KEEP WHAT HAVE..

     

    Please, specify under which marital property system you want to be married

    a)            community property system      _______

    B)            common law property system    _______

        Hi Cupcake-

        I think you are getting married at OCT, correct?  If so, here is a copy of their menu choices:

         

        Hope this helps you if you are getting married at OCT

          Hi Amycuz

           

          My wedding is right around the corner, we leave on Jan 27th. I too haven't heard from Ana in over a month and it's definitely making me nervous.  I don't have all the answers for you but here is what I can tell you.


          My understanding is that a welcome dinner can be booked at the a la cartes, but there is a fee for a group larger than say eight people. Ana can book you a welcome/rehearsal dinner at the buffet for no charge. Just let her know when you'd like this.
           

          I am bringing my own centerpieces and decor as well. I was told by other brides that Ana or her staff will put these out for you (but I have two people travelling in my group prepared to do this as back up)

           I don't know about the table cloth options.

           

          You can definitely bring your own decorateions for your cake and the resort/Ana will put these on for you.

           
          When you arrive at the resort, Ana will send you information about when you will meet with her to finalize options. This is usually the day after you arrive.

           

          You can hang paper lanterns on the lobby terrace, but you will need Ana to rent a large pole to attach them to (I had also asked, but I would be renting the lanterns from her or her party supplier). There may be a fee for the pole set up, but she can definitely arrange - she said she could even do this for me once I arrive at the resort if I make it as a last minute decision...

           

          Hope that helps.

            Does anyone else know about Ana and her staff putting out centerpieces or other types of decor for us brides? I'd like to also bring some string lighting and additional tulle to decorate... do you think the resort would be it out for me?

              I think the resort will put out your items for you. We are planning the same. You might want to have a guest be a back-up in case they don't, but that would surprise me. I leave in 8 days for our wedding at OCT!

               

              Does anybody know if they have any American beers, or even Corona available at the resort? I have heard from friends that at other resorts the beer is pretty terrible.

                  Hi Leahbecker,

                   

                  I am glad you brought up the paper lanterns. I have been meaning to ask Ana about those. Our reception is on the lobby terrace and I bought about 20 large lanterns from ikea and I was hoping I can have them hang them and put lights through them. Do you know if they have lights available that we can use (don't want to bring lights too). I have seen through other posts that brides have had lights with or without lanterns and i was curious if they brought them or if the resort had them. If you have any info on this that would be great.

                   

                   

                  PS. I met a girl last week who got married at OCT last May and she said everything was exactly how she wanted. Once she got to the resort  Ana spent alot of time with them sorting everything out. She was also nervous before hand since she hadn't heard from Ana too much, but it all worked out. Hope that eases you a bit.

                   

                  Good luck with the wedding :)

                      Hi ladies!!

                       

                      Is anyone contemplating  between the OCT wedding packages and the Transat packages?  I have heard mixed reviews about the Transat packages even though they are cheaper.  I heard that they don't provide the minister and that cost is $450.  Also the set up is minimal and you seem to have to pay for extras.  Can anyone verify this?  I have 50 people coming but I want it to stay fairly simple.  Thanks!
