    Good question.  I would like to know the answer also since I was going to order freeze dried petals too.

          I have a cake question - if you have more guests than what's included in the basic package, do you need to pay extra to have a bigger cake?  Can anyone elaborate?  Thanks

           

          Jules - we wish you all the best, and can't wait til you get back, of course :)

              Any past brides who rented out the other restaurants besides Aunt Ruby's for your reception, how was your experience overall? I know we have to have a back up place just in case we have less than the 40 required at AR's so I'm just wondering how the others are. How did you decorate etc. Thanks!

                Hi Starrysim,

                 

                They will based the cake size on the amount of guests you have. you won't have to pay anything extra. we had 60 guest so they gave us a three tier cake which was more than enough for everyone. we kept the smaller tier and took to our room and still had a tonne of left overs from the other tiers.

                  I am using freeze dried flowers as well and ordered mine from flyboynaturals.com. If I remember correctly, i read somewhere on this thread that the freeze dried petals had no problems getting through customs.
                   

                  Please let me know if you learn otherwise.

                   

                  Thanks!

                      For those planning on doing a TTD, have you decided where you are taking your pictures? I want to go off the resort and preferably to a waterfall, but I don't even know if there are any nearby that are not located in Ocho Rios.

                       

                      All help/suggestions are appreciated!

                       

                      Thanks!
