      Hi Soon2bMrsLozada!

       

      Thank you, I loved how the orange looked against the blue as well!

       

      1. For the reception I believe I chose option one, it had martini shrimp cocktail, mushroom soup, a salmon pastry puff and a choice of chicken or beef, I recommend it. Everyone sounded like they liked it! I did switch out the dessert though for the chocolate option (I want to say it was supposed to come with option 3). It was really delicious!

      2. Yep, I got the flowers through the hotel. I sent pictures of what I wanted and explained what colored flowers I wanted. They did a really good job! Like I mentioned in my review, the only thing I did not really like were the boutonnieres (but I didn't think to send a picture so that is my fault).

      3. Yes, I also got the lanterns through the hotel. I believe they were $10 a lantern. I'm not sure what outside venders cost but I just found it easier to do everything through the resort.

       

      Let me know if you have any more questions :-)

        I am also planning to do just the symbolic ceremony to avoid the blood test.

          Hi ajuce:

           

          I know this is mentioned somewhere but I can't seem to find it.  But did you order your linens from wedding linens direct, and what size did you order for your round tables.  Ana sent me an email saying they are 2.2 meters but then that makes it about 86".  I'm a little confused on what size to order for overlays so they look nice and neat.  Thanks.

            Chula,

             

            Is there a legal reason that you had to do it a year before?  Or did you just want to?  Thanks!

We did it this way to avoid blood work/marriage cert translation and all the legal leg work that needs to be done. So we are having a symbolic wedding instead.

                    Wait!  You got catalogs!?  What kind of catalogs. I have Ana and I just got some crap attachments here and there with 1 or 2 pages that were hard to read :(

                    Okay ladies, so my wedding is a 381 days away!!!  Yamina sent me all of the catalogs and menus and packages and I am struggling with how to convey to her what we want!  Did anyone just put pictures of colors and inspiration in a word document and send it to their planner?  I'm thinking of doing that....so she really understands the look we want.
