    Fans - White cloth fans (Pkg1 that I purchased from Michael’s (Found a package that was buy as is for 7.5 it was missing one) Decorating one arm with rhinestones...

    Straws and Napkins in my color.

    Bows - For the backs of the chairs (purchased at Michael’s for 50% off $3.28each)

    Hi Ashley! Thanks for the info. Ana does seem nice...though I have only talked through email. I will be meeting with her next month while on a site visit. I can't wait! Do you happen to know what colors she has for napkins, table clothes, etc?

        ** Sit Down dinner on the beach valid if less than 30 people only,
        If more than 40 people buffet style will apply.




        From what I gather, these prices are the costs above and beyond the first 20 guests attending the wedding when you have one of the Dreams of Love or the Dreams Ultimate pkg. If you do the basic package then the dinner would be the price for each guest.

        Depending on which services/elements you want for your wedding, the basic package with the add on's could be less expensive but ask Ana to price it out for you. Also, you should be able to change your package choice before the wedding. Just waiting to hear from Ana about how much notice they will need to accommodate this.

        Does anybody know what they mean by "special menu"?

              Does anyone know what the Carribean Trio is? With the Ultimate package, I get a free hour of either the carribean trio or the mariachi. I'm planning on using this for the cocktail hour. Is the caribean trio, steel drums?? I would love that!

                  How are you getting a free hour of the carribean trio? Do you mean that is part of your package or did you get a hook up for a free hour?

                    I have not had any luck so far. My wedding planner emailed Ana to ask if she had pics of the huppa. Ana said not yet. She is waiting for a wedding to take place on the beach before getting pics. I am excited to see them. When I get the pics I will for sure put them up here.
