    I'm not crazy about the flower options they sent - they're all very similar with some combination of roses, cali lili, paradise or daisies? Does anyone know if they offer more options when you get there? or if there are other flowers they'll use? thanks!

      They wrote me back and said sorry for any delay.  They said my date was confirmed but no charge to the credit card yet.  At least I am getting that far.  I have booked Anel for photography and then set my time up for the ceremony so I guess it's their issue for not wanting my money right away lol.  I am sure it will work out all fine.  But it's just a lot different to just not have everything to laid out like it is in the States.

It sounds like Gina hasn't been answering emails and im wondering if shes no longer with dreams.... anyone know?

        just find a picture of what you like and they will make it work. We don't have any bouquets or table arrangements from their options.  They were really great, they told us which flowers were very expensive at this time and suggested reasonable, pretty alternatives.

          They may not have replaced Ana yet, maybe that's what the delay is. I spoke to the manager yesterday she has emailed me 3 times clarifying things.  We meet them Sunday morning!!!!

            My fiance and I are having a 'Fiesta' as well! Have you thought about what kinds of activities you will do at the fiesta, or are you keeping it casual? My FMIL thinks we should make it this big formal event, and we'd rather keep it casual and fun :)

Yeah I sent out the save the dates a 3 weeks ago. No one is really in contact with me just our travel agent. I felt bad because she said she knew the exact date everyone got them since her phone never stopped ringing and she had a ton of emails in her inbox. She's waiting till the 17th to book anyone though so I'll start seeing who is coming and all of that good stuff by next weekend. I've been getting mixed responses from everyone so who knows. Like I told my mom and fiance we won't count people until they have officially booked not just by them saying they're coming.

             

            Yea our ceremony is at the gazebo as well but pool deck is what I think i'm going with instead of my original idea of the ballroom. Ever since i saw the photos on here of the setup and how pretty it looks at night I changed my mind. If the weather doesn't cooperate it will definately be in the ballroom. For dresses I just started looking at different things online but haven't gone and physically looked. The running of the brides is here in chicago next friday the 16th so was thinking of maybe going to that after the morning madness to check out some styles and materials. For colors I am going for bright pink and orange. I at first was thinking aqua/teal and pink but have made the final decision of orange and pink since it looks more beachy/tropical.

              Hi All!

                I'm getting married in November 2012 and I'm trying to decide on my cocktail hour and reception locations. I haven't heard back from the wedding manager (I know it can take a long time!) but am anxious to see the options. Does anyone have pictures they can send of the different reception and cocktail hour locations? My email addy is ahall5665@hotmail.com

               

              Thanks!!

               

              Ashley

                Hey everyone...I just talked to Evangelina the wedding planner on email for the first time today.  I'm so confused:(  With the Ultimate package, doesn't it include a reception?  She started telling me it's $3,000 just for the location and them I still have to do the package for the food...

                 

                Does anyone have insight on what is "included" for the reception areas.   Also, I know before I looked and in the Ultimate package it said it included the Photo Package 3, but now I see that it says it includes 50 photos but it doesn't say anything about including the photographer...

                 

                Any help anyone can give me is so much appreciated.  We are really trying to keep the cost to the package price as much as we can.

                 

                Thanks Brides!!

                  The ultimate package includes dinner reception for 20 people anything over that is I believe a 65 dollar fee for 2012. 

                  You will get a photographer for 30 mins in that package to take 50 photos.

                   

                  You will need to contact Anel for additional photos.  I choose to book her for the whole day for 1400 for 200 photos plus my 50 included in package.

                    If you have offsite guests do you pay the $55 day pass plus the $65 for the meal?

                      Does anyone know who the new wedding coordinator is? I havent heard from anyone in a few months and have been trying to get a hold of someone with questions. If you girls wouldn't mind answering some of my questions, I would be so appreciative!  How long is the reception with the ultimate package--do you get to choose or do they tell you how many hours? Also, did any of you get married on the beach and if so was anything included as far as the set-up on the beach (chairs, chair covers, bamboo arch or chuppah?) is that all at an extra cost? Thanks so much!!!
