Did they work something out since the communication was poor? How was the music bar? How much? Did Nicole set up all your decorations? Did anyone go to the spa for hair, nails, or make up? How did the weather turn out? Windy?
I don't know why no one informed me until I got there, she said I needed 40 pp to privatize, they didn't care if i was willing to pay for 40 I needed 40 bodies. It was semi-private because pillars separated us from other diners, we were there for a while over the normal time about 2 hours, people were waiting for us to take pictures before they started eating. The bill was much less than expected and the music bar was great it was a lil big for my group though. they only charged $350 for the music bar for the DJ, drinks were free because we were at a bar. She set up all the decor , I told her what to do and they did a better job than expected. No Spa, it was windy but not too bad.

Your review was great. Sorry to hear about the reception fiasco. I can imagine this being an issue since when the resort is fully booked.
Did you use Rashel for make-up? You and your groom look great! Did you add fabric to the huppa? I know I have more questions but I can not think of them all right now. I'll be back...
Thanks! I did use Rashel she was great! I brought down fabric but they ended up wrapping it with tulle that i brought as well.
