    I have a few quick questions:

    Did you have to book DR Mannia in advance or did the WCs do that for you?

    What chairs did you use for the ceremony?  I'm definitely bringing sashes but I really like the white covers on the chairs that you had. 



    Glad it helped  :)  I told the WC I wanted DJ MAnnia and she booked him and put me in touch with him.  I used their chairs and they always cover them with their own white covers, you just add the sashes - ps - you should be able to shop around and get them at $1/sash, don't pay more.  Just google chair sashes.

      I bought my chair sashes from this website.  They were $5.99 on sale for a package of 10.  Royal blue organza.  Check out this website.

        They sent me a simple paper asking what flowers, cake, and other extras that I wanted.  It was like called a pre wedding survey or something like that.  I'll try to find it on my computer. I knew what I wanted prior to arriving because they sent me pictures of the cakes and flowers. I also took my own sashes and a few other items like peacock feathers for the table at dinner.  I just basically went over all of that during the 20 minutes.  I talked to her about how to tie the sashes on the chairs and also about the specifics of the tables and the ceremony set up at the rehearsal. : )  We arrived on Saturday and the Wedding was on wednesday. : )  Questions are perfectly fine, thats how I found out so much.  I learned more from my questions to everyone on here than I did the wedding coordinator.

        What questionaire did they send you?  We're getting married in Feb and I've been in touch with a few different WCs but still haven't gotten any specifics down.  Did you guys seem to do a lot of planning in the 20 minutes you met with Griselda on the day you arrived?  Also, how many days before your wedding were you there.  (Sorry so many questions; your review just got me thinking...)


        Also thanks to you for taking the time to do that review.  Reading it was really helpful and much appreciated by all us future EPC brides!

          Make sure that you take some extra chair sashes with you.  They can tie them around the three other tables that they have there during the ceremony. Also , the banister like thing that you walk over to get to the beach.  : )

                  Hi! I'm new to this forum. My fiancee and I just got engaged and now we're looking at resorts. My two top picks right now are Dreams Palm Beach and Excellence. Any pointers or insight would be greatly appreciated!

                    Hello Ladies!

                    I'm an EPC bride to be this June 10, 2011. I am so nervous about what to expect. Isyuney is my WC because Ana no longer works with the Excellence. I heard Ana was great to work with. Honestly I have had a difficult time getting detailed information out of my WC. I ask a few questions and she always responds with a one to two sentence answer- NO details. Has anyone else had trouble with this?

                      Hello Ladies!!! The countdown is on! May 27th is around the corner! Just a couple of questions. What are any of your husbands giving their groomsmen? Mine is doing engraved money clips but i feel he needs to do one more thing. Any suggestions? Thanks!
