I'm having trouble deciding how many extras to buy from the resort, and how many extra little things to bring with us (personalized napkins, coasters, etc etc)...  I'm trying to keep it relatively simple so that we're not dragging a million suitcases with us, or blowing the budget, but it sure is hard making all of these decisions!

 

 

Hello!

 

I have emailed Eva about this, i also have young children attending the wedding (1-4 years)

 

I can let you know when i get a response :)

Our ceremony is at 3:30 and we are starting at 10am. There are 5 of us getting hair done and 3 of us getting makeup. If you email the salon they should give you a good time frame.

I am sorry to rant, but I have just received an email from Eva saying that we cannot have round tables in the Seaside Grill for our reception :(

 

I have already purchased all centrepieces and accessories for the tables (Only accounting for the round tables that seat 8-10 people not square tables that seat 4) i have ecen purchased the table clothes etc.

 

I am really confused as when Eva sent me photos of previous wedding receptions at the Seaside Grill they all had the round tables.

 

Can anyone shed some more light on this matter?

Hi Loripanori,

Congrats on the upcoming wedding.  I had a quick question for you.  Are you doing the civil ceremony or symbolic?  I am asking because for civil on Dreams website says to arrive 4 full business days prior not including weekends but it seems most are arriving 3 days prior.  When I emailed Eva she said both were fine but I am trying to gage what most people are doing so I don't lose a day.  

Thanks

Nicole

I know they tend to be slow with responses, but I have asked for information multiple times and haven't heard back in over two months now! Lorena is our coordinator but I also cc'd Evangelina. I am getting sooo frustrated with their communication!
