      Hi, ladies!

       

      hustyg, I'm glad you enjoyed my pics:) I can't stress enough how good HDC is:) We did have the Ultimate package with HDC and it was definitely worth it. I think you get a lot for the price you pay. Arnaud was there from me getting ready, to the ceremony, photoshoot afterwards, and part of the reception. I actually wish he could have stayed longer...lol. Having the reception on the beach was amazing! Everyone was saying how it looked like a scene from a movie! And the sand was fine to dance on:) We also got the Ultimate package for the reception and was also really worth it. The bonfire was great and I definitely recommend that, as well:) We had our ceremony at 4 and originally I thought it was early, but it actually was a perfect time. We had plenty of sunshine and time to take pictures afterwards.

       

      Thanks, dcairns! Your centerpieces look beautiful! I would say just be careful with the glass...make sure you have a back up plan just in case, God forbid, one of them breaks in the luggage. The SSG is beautiful and I am sure will be great for your reception. A major plus is the air conditioning and it is really nice inside:)

        Hey Ladies

         

        Just wondering if you guys heard from Tiara recently? I sent her 2 e-mails over 2 weeks ago and still no reply, she usually gets back to me in a week... maybe shes on vacation???

          Thanks everyone...

           

          GEM... all I can say is bubblewrap!! I've decided to just ship them down via FEDex before. Make sure they arrive safely with Tiara and then also have a backup plan. Its impossible to find plastic vases that will have that look or be that large.  There is no way I can bring everything that I want to bring down in my luggage. Sunwing gave us a free upgrade as the bride and groom for extra weight and preferred seating. But now that the possibility of 25 more guests is looming.. i'm just going to have to ship stuff in advance.   I repeat BUBBLEWRAP, AND praying to the FEDEX gods that everything gets there!!!

           

          Currently I didn't get the full package for HDC, just the three hour. But Arnaud said he could stay an extra hour for 150$ if we wish.  So far he is extremly easy to work with.. and after seeing pictures... i love how they turned out.

           

          If I was less people I probably would have gone with the Ultimate wedding package. BUT budget is budget, and I rented out the SSG instead to handle the head count. :)

                Hi Ladies....I feel like im gonna loose it...less than 2 weeks away and Im having trouble communicationg with Yanna.

                Im going for the Silver Menu ... here is my issue:

                 


                I was assigned over to Yanna (the new wedding coordinator) and I do not understand what she says to me.

                So I made the mistake of having each guest pick their own menu by choosing one optiion from each of the four courses (entree, soup, main course, desert)


                Yana then told me that the bride and groom choose the same courses (except for the main course) for each guest. this is what she wrote:

                 

                **Please make the menu selection as follows:
                 
                1 Entr©e (For all group)
                1 Soup (For all group)
                 2 Main course (the guest choose on the wedding day)
                1 desserts (For all group) ***

                 

                I then got confused b/c she wrote that guests choose 2 main courses!


                So I wrote back to her to clarify this for me telling her that they only get to choose 1 main course.

                 

                She then writes back to me that yes, guests get 2 choices for the main course but only get to choose one.
                I am confused, as there are 4 options for the main course.

                 

                I just dont understand how all of this S**t works. Im pissed b/c I bought special paper for the menus...i printed them already and now I did it wrong...I wanna re-print them again but I need to know exactly how it should be done before I make another mistake.

                 

                If you any of you ladies are going with the silver or gold menu, can you pleeeaaasseee help me out!!!  I would really aprpeaciate it.

                 

                Thanks so much
                xoxo Bee

                  Bee,

                   

                  What I think the misunderstanding is coming from is that for the entree, you and your FI pick two choices of the 4 for the entire group, say a fish and chicken, or chicken and steak.  Then at the reception, your guests chooses one of the options, either Fish or chicken, or Chicken or Steak.  In other words, you narrow it down to the two choices that most of your guests would pick and then at dinner the guest picks which one they really want.

                   

                  That is my opinion.  That's what we have to do for the reception at the Seaside Grill to my knowledge.

                    Yikes Pink Petals!!

                     

                    I'm not going with the menu, but I was told that we choose two choices and the guest can choose from one of the two.  And thats my understand with Tiara.    

                    I hope you figure this out. Are you able to call them??

                      Mrs. Williams,

                       

                      Just to quickly clarigy...when you said "entree" you mean "main course" right?

                       

                      Also, I already know what my guests chose...I already know what each person wants as their main course...so I want to print my menus again.

                       

                      Ok so lemme see if I get this now...

                       

                      For the Entree, Soup and Dessert....everyone has the same thing which me and my husband choose??

                      And for the Main Course, each guests chooses (in th end) only one option which of course will vary depending on what the person chooses?

                       

                      I want to re-print my menus again and I want to be sure Im doing it right this time.

                       

                      So Person A might have:

                       

                      Entree: Capresse Salad

                      Soup: Cream of Mushroom

                      Main Course: CHicken Cordon Bleu

                      Dessert: Pinneaple Volteado...

                       

                      Person B has the same thing except for the Main Course:

                      Entree: Capresse Salad

                      Soup: Cream of Mushroom

                      Main Course: CHicken Cordon Bleu

                      Dessert: Pinneaple Volteado....

                       

                      Oh man...im so screwed LOL
