    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?

        I think everyone just put them in their luggage wrapped in tissue - They were so easy to fluff up - on the way home I just threw it in the suite case and it was perfect just needed to adjust the wires so the flowers spread out - they weren't super huge and didn't take up a ton of room - so even those who used boxes didn't have space issue.

          We had our reception on the Pool Deck - its the drop off side of the infinity pool between the pool and the beach.

            How many different entrees did you give your guests to choose from? Im still confused lol and it takes forever to get a response from Gina.

                Hi Just wondering how it was for wind having the reception outside? I really want to take advantage of the outdoors but dont want people to be upset if it's too windy? I see you mentioned something about the candles? Is the Carribean buffet part of the package?

                  To be honest the whole week we were there the wind was just perfect that night - just a slight breeze so there was no bugs.  The other nights it was crazy windy.  Now... just to let you know, it was a changing of the seasons the last 2 weeks which means all this rain comes in and wind, which pushes more warm air in.  They said it is how they know "spring" is here.  In that case I would see if other brides who had weddings around your date have had less windy weather.  

                   

                  Yeah The candles didn't stay lit even with the breeze coming in - I would recommend flameless either way.  

                   

                  The Carribean buffet is 1 of the 3 choices in the Ultimate package if your party is over 40 people - 

                   

                  Tonight I will update my blog with the other options for dinners.

                      Evangelina told me that we had to choose one entree for everyone. I think it seems weird. If anyone else was able to give their guests options, please let me know how to go about doing so.
