    Hello fellow brides! I have been reading this forum for probably a month and a half by now...all the way from page 1 to 344! I have finally made it to the end so I thought now would be a good time to introduce myself.

     

    Our wedding is set for May 14, 2012 at IRHB!

     

    We are staying from the 11th through the 18th (still thinking about upgrading to the grand after the wedding). Look forward to getting great ideas from you girls over the next several months!

      Did any of you past brides reuse your bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces? If so how did that work out? A part of me wants to consider doing so, but I'm just a bit worried as to when the bridal party would have to give Nicole/Tiffany their bouquets. I guess before cocktail hour is over and prior to guests entering would be best if I were to do it. Anyone that has done so, please share your experience. Thank you!

        I plan on doing so.... I am going to have the vases set up and just take our bouquets in right before everyone goes in. Should be easy enough. The main thing I'm concerned with is how well the flowers will hold up in the several hours between our ceremony and the  reception, and through all the pictures, etc.

          I've noticed in pictures that at Aunt Ruby's they have bright yellow and blue plates. Is this always the case? Does anyone know if you can just have white plates? They would clash horribly with my color scheme...   Haha!

            I'm working on another DIY project, invitations! Does any one know if the set meal is one option (for example,we all eat tenderloin) or do we have a choice of all the options for Uncle Tony's ? It says for groups of 25 or more they require a set preselected menu. I just don't know if I send out my invitations with the options of my guests picking an entree (listed is the tenderloin, salmon, chicken or vegetarian) on my RSVP ??  What did any past brides do  ?

              Question, I'm getting married at the Beach and in our wedding agreement, it says that if there are more than 40ppl that the hotel can provide a private reception for an extra cost. Does anyone know how much the extra cost is and where it would be provided? I thought we would just be fine with the semi-private for free option but if we get 40ppl it would be nice to have an area to ourselves :-)

              Thanks ladies!

              Happy planning

                It is $800 for a private reception (extra cost is right!) and can either be at the steakhouse or the cajun restaurant. 

                 

                Hope that helps :)

                  That does help. I was hoping that it wouldn't be so expensive though! Ugh! I'll prolly just go w/ the semi-private since that's included.

                  Thank you

                    Hi! Yes, If you have 40 ppl or more, you have the option of renting out Tony's steakhouse for 800.00, that includes dinner, and wine and beer.. if you wanted a DJ, or anything like that it is extra.. My suggestion would be to email the WC, and ask them for the details on the options such as the bonfire and the private reception and they will send you the price list :)

                      for all of you beach brides, the new WC silvia is incredibly responsive. i sent her an email on friday and she responded within 30 minutes which was GREAT..plus we exchanged several emails which she responded to quickly.  i'm hopeful that this signals a change in their responsiveness.  i sent an email today with a load of questions which i suspect she won't get to until monday..let's hope i get a quick response like i did yesterday.

                       

                      fingers crossed!!
