    Does anybody know anything about upgrading to the presidential suite at the beach? Do you not know until you check in or can your TA request it?

      As a side note to the ladies that want crystals on the huppa make sure to have some way to fasten them down.  I would say that most early evenings there was a steady breeze and those crystals will be flying and tangling in the breeze

      When I was there in March I had also experienced the same thing. However one of the workers told us March & April is there high wind(sailing season they call it). I am planning on preparing on having backup with hair if it's wind but thanks for the reminder with crystals.

        ..."Reception:

        We had our reception dinner at Aunt Ruby’s Steakhouse. We didn’t rent out the restaurant because we didn’t have 50 people, but that actually worked out for us money wise. The d©cor looked amazing. Nicole and her crew did a wonderful job. They even put up my 12 lanterns I brought even though we didn’t rent out the restaurant. I was so pleased on how everything looked."

         

        Hope this can help!

        OMG! Papoue, thank you SO much, this is the post/review I've been looking for! You have no idea how happy I am right now - thankyouthankyouthankyou!!

          If you go into a thread that you think it may have been discused at the top of the thread under the headline (in a yellowish orange) there is a blue link search option "Search this Thread" you can type in key words and it will pull all of the posts in that thread that have them in there.  I tried looking yesterday at lanterns & semi-private in some that I've posted in. No Luck.  Maybe you can try some that you posted. That's so frustrating. 

           

          I'm surprised FF was higher.  I honestly think it depends who you talk to down there.  Nothing ever seems consistent after reading posts from other brides on here.  I think everyone just makes up their own prices.  I hope it all works out for you.  Try to enjoy your last few days, I'd definitely take into consideration the lack of communication when tipping these people!! Do they forget that they work for us? (not to be rude, but it's true)

          I have been searching but with no luck - but Papoue just found the post I had been looking for!! (See above). I'm not an unreasonable bride - if they have done for one, why can't they do for others? I actually came up with another idea to meet them halfway - use some (but not all) of the lanterns at dinner, IF there is a way to use the rest at our beach cocktail party. I know there really aren't any trees, but if we're set up right by the pool bar we could hang some there and along the wall that skirts the beachfront. We'll see what happens!

           

          I got the sense that FF is a much smaller operation. Tai appears to have some items on hand to rent out, whereas FF had to outright purchase some items so they jacked up the rental rate to offset the purchase costs. You are right - the only thing consistent is that nothing is consistent! LOL

           

          Oh believe me, there are a few tips that are hanging in the balance right now. We will decide based on what happens in the next six days.

          And you're not rude, they do work for us, we have hired/rented/booked them for our weddings. So much to pay for, so many charges on top of things we've technically already paid for...so we're fully entitled to expect good customer service and that they will deliver on what we are paying for.

            Update! We will have lanterns at our semi-private at Aunt Ruby's!  

             

            I presented my argument (via email) to Nicole, and she wrote back saying they would accommodate the request. Yahoo! and phew!

             

            (I do wonder if the PR Manager who I emailed about this and another issue had anything to do with the decision. I'm not sure as I haven't heard from her today but if that's what it took, it was well worth it.)

                  Whohoo! Glad there is one less thing to stress about!

                  Have an amazing time! Take pictures of the beach resort too if you happen to pop over there ;-)
