      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!

              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://thetravelingb...c.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?
