Hilton Brides Unite!

Recommended Posts

MariaElena,

 

That sound so delicious! Are you doing the plated dinner or a buffet? I need to look at my menus again! Listening to the description of your cake is making me rethink my cupcake idea! ...maybe I'm just hungry because it's lunch time but I think it's your delicious food!

 

The church in San Jose is gorgeous by the way. We peaked in at a mass when we were there and it's really a beautiful little church!

 

What are you doing for decorations, etc?

Wow. It sounds wonderful. I'm so excited to hear about it.

I can't even imagine how I would be one month before.

 

Thanks for your information. It helps to see things laid out.

You are right that even if the food isn't totally fabulous, you will be in an amazing place, with the right number of people and not 100 extra.

We leave on the 9th (only 2 days before wedding) so just make sure to post your review by then :) (thanks in advance, I sound so demanding! haha)
Mmmm, your menu sounds great too. We're doing the opposite and doing traditional Mexican at the rehearsal dinner (at Damiana). My FI is handling the RD planning so I'm trying to breathe and believe it's going well.

Ok, I'll be sure to post my review in plenty of time before you leave so you don't yell at me. wink.gif

We decided to go with a plated dinner. That was one of my FIs main sticking points so I didn't fight him on it. We actually just decided on the cake yesterday. Emeline says opera is a very popular flavor. My FI and I are both chocolate lovers, so we figured "what the heck?" We were originally going to go with tres leches, but Emeline says it doesn't hold up well outside. (BTW, she's much better when you ask her specific questions rather than general ones.)

Yes, we're excited about the church. The Hilton website (have you seen the version below?) has good 360 views of places and hotel details.

For decorations, we're keeping it pretty simple. See attached table diagram. We'll have 9 tables for dining. For centerpieces I rented glass bowls from fun & motivation ($7 each). We'll sprinkle sand and a few shells at the bottom and float starfish and pink round floating candles.

We also have additional tables for:
1. Bridal portrait and guest book, framed pictures of both of our parents on their wedding day
2. Cake
3. Rented boxes (from Fun and Motivation, $10 each) with starfish in sand. The starfish will have each person's name and "destination" table for seating. I've glued magnets on the starfish so they're also favors. We'll post the legend of the starfish as well.

In case you hadn't figured it out. The theme of our wedding is starfish with tropical pink and yellow colors.

Anyway, I've inundated you with info but I hope it helps!

That is great info! Thank you so much for putting up all the atytachments - who knows, Emeline might end up with two starfish themed weddings!

 

Thank you SO much! I Love the Starfish legend! That is such a wonderful thought and idea. It that what's tied to each starfish?

You're welcome. Feel free to steal any ideas you like. I've begged, borrowed, and stolen from numerous other people and magazines.

 

I'm glad you liked the starfish legend. It's cheesy, but makes me smile. It will be posted in a frame near the starfish boxes. Each starfish will have a tag tied to it with yellow and pink ribbon.

 

On the front, the tag will say:

MariaElena Murillo (name)

Destination: Rockport (table name)

 

On the back, the tag will say:

Thank you for joining us today

and making a difference in our lives!

- Dave & MariaElena -

Very cute! Is the Hilton providing the yellow table clothes and chair bows? Was there any charge for them? Emeline had said she'd include chair bows but I forgot to ask her about colored linens...

Yes, Hilton is providing the yellow table cloths and chair bows. Emeline is not charging me for this. I had her write in the BEO (banquet event order) that we turn in this Friday with our 80% of the bill.
