    She did mention they can do set up, which of course I would be charged a $100 vendor fee by Iberostar, but I'll wait and see what the quote looks like before deciding on anything.

    I thought the suites didnt allow any other florists on property to do set up beside taiflora?  Can anyone clarify?  It was my understanding if you used another florist they could only drop off.

      I use that link religiously!!  Even for future vacations (especially as we are planning our honeymoon)  It's so beneficial when trying to plan decor!!

        Hey Heather1214, I'm not sure. I thought any vendor could come on the property, hence the $100 fee. 

        HollyandJohn, can you clarify? It sounds from what you posted (below) that both options are possible.

        I'd prefer to save the vendor fee; just as long as someone can set everything up the way I want it.

                Did she say anything about any other florists (beside TaiFlora) being allowed on property to set up the reception?

                 

                and in your post: "they" being Nicole and Tiffany?

                  Paper lanterns - to light or not to light?

                   

                  I've got about 15 white lanterns of various sizes that I'm going to ask to be hung directly overhead our dining table(s) at Aunt Ruby's and I'm back and forth on whether to use them simply as decor or if I should buy individual LED lights for each and use them as ambient lighting. I've seen photos of both and both look nice so I'm torn.

                   

                  Past brides - what's the lighting situation like at Aunt Ruby's? I've seen evening photos where the pillar lights are used as well as candlelight and the reception looked sufficiently lit. I'd like the lighting to be somewhat dim to create an intimate, romantic ambiance but not so dark that unlit lanterns won't even be noticed. At this point we've only planned to use candles on our table(s) and whatever pillar lighting is nearby. Oh, and we're a small group (30 ppl) so we might be at one long table or in a U shape (if that even fits with the interior pillars..?!)

                   

                  Thoughts?

                    Are you doing a private dinner?  I think either way would work... if you are doing candles on the tables and planning on using the pillars, I'd ask Nicole if the can dim the regular lights in the room.. then I'd use the lights in the lanterns!!

                      I'm at the Suites but I've not ever heard about a bamboo canopy, just the huppa and the arch. Look through wedding reviews here to see what both look like. If it turns out there is a bamboo canopy, please come back and let us know!

                       

                      Jaclyn111, someone once directed me to Oyster.com for resort photos - I found it's got great quality photos and lots of them to help in planning. Here's the link to the Beach, you'll see Uncle Tony's if you scroll through. http://www.oyster.co...s--v1857132-34/

                      Oh my gosh...thank you sooo much for the link.  You guys are so great!  I can't wait to check it out.  Thanks again!
