I would get a DJ.. i am inviting about 100 ppl to my wedding knowing most will not come but i think a DJ is good anyway because the peopl who do come are expecting to be dancing and partying ( i assume) im going with a DJ no matter what.. so thats my advice ;)

From my understanding if u are having it outside on the pool deck u have to do a buffet. By pool deck do u mean the deck infront of the main pool or jsut the grounds around the pool? Either way my coordinator told me it is buffet only! Im going with the deck becasue I dont mind the buffet.. i think its more relaxed and lets people choose when they want to eat

Maybe some of you can help me out with this because i have no idea what Gina is saying in her email to me because of her broken english! For selecting the menu she emailed me the silver and gold plates to choose from, so can i pick any soup and any salad from both lists? Also i know we have to tell her what entree each guests wants can they choose from all 8? or do i pick 2 different ones and they can only choose from the 2 i select? ahhhh im probably not explaining this correctly hopefully someone understands me and can help me out! I wish we could just do a buffet it would be way easier, but she told us u have to have at least 30 people to do that, and we only have 18. Thanks ladies!

I had the same question too.

I chose the Silver menu.  Then I asked Evangelina if we could pick and chose certain items from option 1 and option 2 (basically, if we could mix and match)...she said yes so we basically designed our menu from all the Silver options listed.  I also asked if we (my fiance and I) were to choose 2 entrees and have our guests order at the reception. She told us we were to pick one, which seems weird to me. We chose a fish as our main entree and my fiance suggested that we put a "nutritinal disclaimer" on our wedding site, letting our guests know that if they have allergies to fish or anything, they need to tell us.

If anyone else has any insight, i'd reallyl ike to hear what your menu plans are!

Thanks!

Kate

I have an aversion to mushrooms so we chose off the gold menu and mixed and matched.  I asked if it was allowed and Yamina said yes.  I ordered menu cards and everything off etsy so I hope that she doesn't go back on her word!

On my lunch break I was able to start a new blog.

 

http://thetravelingbridedrc.blogspot.com/

 

I am continuing to add today - Thanks for emailing questions I am making sure to get to them in my blog!

 

FYI those concerned about Buffet.  The Caribbean Buffet was AMAZING! people are still talking about it.

I divided up the flowers between my bridesmaids and they carried theirs on in a box in their luggage - My now husband carried mine on in his carry on and all the bouts and moms wrist corsages fit in a tiny box that I was able to stick in my suite case - they fluffed up perfect at the hotel with a little tweeking.  Don't stress to much over it as long as you have a little protection you are good to go.

I did my own hair and make up for the trash the dress, my hair was just scrunched and pinned up and I did my normal make up that day. + waterproof mascara and eyeliner ;)

 

So excited you changed your mind to do it.  Best thing we did! plus you are more calm and relaxed as you can tell from my photos

This is great! Thanks again. I have one question, and I'm sorry if you've mentioned this before, but is that the pool terrace or the pool deck?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
