      For the SSG, that includes food and service. There is an additional bar fee of 12.60 a person. (new since July)

      Mr Williams, you mentioned that the SSG costs  $1260 for up to 60 ppl...is that for the area reservation and food only? or does it include something else like drinks and music? Would you know?

       

      Anyway girls, thanks for posting so much information!! You are all my wedding planners!!

       

      XOXO

            Don't stress too much georgie2b. I was freaking out back in July when we booked the hotel about getting everything done, but you have a TON of time. Destination weddings are so great because they take a lot of the planning away from you, if you want. You'll find everything you need, and it will all be great!

              6) Pink Petals (I realize your wedding has passed and you might not be on as often, but I thought I would ask anyways!), where did you end up getting your lanterns?  I live close to Toronto and am always looking for a bargain!

              *Thank you!



              Arily,

              I went to China town downtown. I dont remember the name of the store but I just went from store to store until I found what I was looking for. I believe I purchased about 18 lanterns in total (different sizes) which cost me about $80! I got too many thats for sure; I think 12 would have been enough! I even told Yana not to hang all of them in the Gazebo.

                Also, for the Canadian brides who flew with Sunwing, how many a la carte dinners does the package include?

                 

                Hi Lisa,

                 

                I flew with Sunwing and you are able to use all of the DLR restaurants; the amazing thing about this resort is that you do not need reservations to go to any of their restaurants; you can go as often as you like!

                  I can send it to you no problem..whats your e-mail address?

                    Hi Georgie,

                     

                    I did a lot of research and the best prices I found were from www.efavormart.com since their shipping as not that much! What you see in my pictures are chocolate satin overlays. According to what Tiara had told me, I went with the Satin Overlay 90"x90". Here are 2 e-mails I had sent Tiara prior to ordering my linens! Her answers are written in blue:

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Email #1:

                     

                     

                    Hi Tiara,

                     

                    I am ordering the table linens for my reception off the internet. (I need silk chocolate brown linens and the resort does not have that color)

                     

                    So far, 38 people are booked for the wedding; two more people might come but its not sure yet; so the maximum people I will have at the wedding will be 40 in total with myself and my husband included.

                     

                     

                    a) If I seat 8 people per table, then that means I will need 5 tables in total correct?  Yes, but you have the option if you want a sweetheart table just for you and your husband so you can be separate of the other guests.

                    B) Does each table fit 8 people comfortably?All depends on the type of tables that you want, round or rectangular tables.

                    c) Do you know the approximate height and diameter of each table?If you use round tables, we have round tables of 48 inches and 72 inches. And if you want rectangular tables we have 60 inches.

                    d) Also, would you be able to provide me with two smaller tables; one for the cake and one for the guestbook? Yes, we offer square tables.

                    e) What sizes would these two tables approximately be?Approximately 48 inches.

                     

                    Thank you so much for your time once again!!!

                     

                     

                     

                    Email #2

                     

                    Hi Tiara,

                     

                    As I mentioned earlier, I will have maximum 40 people attending the wedding.

                     

                    a) If I go with the round tables, can I seat 8 people comfortably? Yes, you can.

                    B) Would you be able to approximately tell me the height of the round tables?72 inches of diameter and 31.2 inches of height. This means that you will need a round tablecloth of 134 inches.

                     

                     

                     

                     



                     

                    I hope this helps georgie...lemme kno if you have any other questions

                     

                    xoxo Bee
