    That is a very good point...and we're doing the caribbean buffet for the welcome dinner...yikes I might need to rethink this. I think I have to do a buffet though because we're having over 60 people...

      Chris and Leah- July 9, 2010

      We chose to have our reception where we live, so I hope it won't be tacky for us not to have one in Mexico also?

      I haven't gotten very much done as far as planning goes, but I did get the options for the bouquets emailed to me- There is also a slideshow for extra charge bouquets that i cant quite figure out how to post, it keeps saying upload failed or something. But I can email it if anyone is interested.

        I am going with the buffet. Personally, since I don't like seafood, the plated dinners, although sounding a little more formal and fancy, really didn't appeal to me. Luckily, everyone is arriving at the resort on a Thursday and my wedding is on Friday, so hopefully they aren't sick of buffets by then :)

            I'm anticipating having to do a buffet because of the size of my group so I haven't really given it much thought, but actually I don't think that people will be buffeted out! There are so many a la carte restaurants, and you can even do a la carte for lunch, so I'm sure folks will eat at the buffet but probably not as much as at some other resorts.

            I personally think that the plated dinner sounds nice, but on the other hand with the buffet you get more choices. I think your guests will be happy either way!

              We cant do plated dinner regardless due to # of guests but I also considered buffett before as you only get once choice of entre with a plated dinner and thats tough if you have a large group

              welcome to the group Kym - happy planning!

                  I just came up with an idea for my response cards, finally!
                  I didn't want to do the traditional response cards. Do you girls think this is cheesy?

                  Mine will say:

                  We look forward to celebrating with you

                    I love that, it also serves as telling your guests how formal of an event its going to be, I actually already copied it for my reference of options of wording to use - thanks!
