    We do accept credit cards in addition to travelers'checks and cash..

      I think I saw somewhere on here it was $40 for a bag of rose petals not sure where. I will be giving my bags out before hand that way you don't have to worry about customs. If you are all on the same flight it would be easy.

        I like that idea better then one big long table. Is any one doing seating arrangements or just winging it??

          I'm pretty certain I'm going to do seating arrangements.

            As of right now my dinner is set for Mammee Bay. If i go over 50 people I have to rent a sep place (the plantation I guess??). The problem with this is that what if I have to change last minute? I tink I will be right at 50 people or a few less. My travel agent/WC said she will make it work so i'm not too worried
            My understanding that at Mammee it is 1 long table? I think I read somewhere on Brides.com that a bride got it so there were sep tables for a head table....anyone know

                  Great! Thanks for the info. I just send Lee's an email. I'm thinking this will work out better....esp since I have a 1 yr old son. This way if he act up, no one else has to be bothered by it.
                  You girls are GREAT!! Thanks for the info I have gotten so far!!!!

                    Mo... I love your seating arrangement idea. I have been indecided on this because I didn't want anything too formal. I would love to see the drink cards that you make. (If you don't mind if I steal this one from you.) Let me know where you find the best deal on the rum.

                    Your guests are going to have the time of their lives.

                      That is actually a great idea to buy it from the resort the price difference is huge.

                      If you are having a cocktail hour Chandlyn just informed me that Rum punch and fruit punch is included in the price (one less thing to worry about)
