To respond to your other questions. My ceremony is tentatively at 5:30 PM on the 12th on the pier (as I mentioned, religious ceremony is on the 11th, just the ceremony, nothing else). The majority of my guests will be attending both ceremony, except 4 people. I am wearing two different dresses, both ivory, but one more "evening gown" style for the 11th and the other one by Pronovias on the 12th (I posted a pic way back on this forum). My photographer is HDC, they have very reasonable price and I really liked their work and the reviews given to them on this forum. I am not using a resort photographer. As far as linense, I would have preferred ivory as well, but because of the upcharge I will be just sticking with white. My color is magenta and my theme is orchids so it will go just fine with white linens, I would think. I went a little orchid-crazy with all the decor, when I post the planning thread you will see, lol.
Speaking of the hotel being booked up, because I desperately need one extra room I called Jenny directly to inquire if they have anything saved as a backup and they do have the room but they want $450 a night for a regular room!!!!! That's just crazy considering everyone who booked in my party is paying $177 a night.
Have you gotten your estimated charges yet? I have been following up for the past 3 weeks, emailed Yanna 4 times (she was supposed to be doing my wedding), no response, called them, no response, finally emailed Jenny and she tells me she took over for my wedding. I yet have to see my invoice and I have less than two weeks left, it is so frustrating.

My ceremony is at 4 on the 12th, when is yours? Where are you having yours? I know that we will cross paths somewhere along the way. I wish we would have bumped into each other earlier, we could have helped each other with transporting all of this stuff. The only thing I am using of the resorts is chairs and sashes and china. I am bringing my own linens, flowers, gazebo decorations, centerpieces, cake decorations, pretty much everything. Can you believe they charge $30 for ivory linens? That seemed ridiculous to me, so I purchased my own, that I will hopefully be able to pass on to someone else afterwards. So all of your guest won't be in town for your religious ceremony? Are you wearing two different dresses for the different ceremonies? Who is your photographer?
I have so many questions for you, too bad we are just now crossing paths, LOL
