      I believe I have read in earlier posts that the round tables seat 8-9 comfortably. I think most brides have put place cards on a separate table with table numbers assigned. I am only having 24 people total and mostly my family so I am planning on doing one big table as to not make my grooms family feel outnumbered and to bring a more cohesive feel to the reception. I am going to still do seating chart but place the place cards at assigned seats of where I want people to sit. Hope that helps! :0)

        We are not going to do a log on the Bubba Keg's. I decided that most people (mainly the guys) wouldn't ever use it again if it had Savanah and John written on it :)

         

        I found the cheapest place is actually the Bubba Keg Website.

        We are getting these:

        http://www.shopbubba...ssic-black.aspx

        They have black, blue, purple and gray and we'll get a mixture of the colors. they are 7.49 original price but you get 15% off if you spend more than $200. So, they end up being about 6.36 each and only 4.99 flat rate shipping.

         

        Yes, it's expensive, but I think in the long run, these will get used more! I know some of the young guys going would not carry around a cheap mug in our wedding colors with our name on it. But they would use a gray or black bubba keg at the resort and once they got home!

         

        That's just my take on it :)

          Lorena told me 6-10 per table. We are going to try to do 8 per table.

          We're not doing assigned seating so I dont know about the seating chart :)

                  Hi Liz, 

                   

                  Weather so far is fantastic!!!! Very hot!!! I am a little worried about the heat and my dress but the beach has a lovely breeze most of the time so fingers crossed! 

                   

                  You may just see our ceremony it is on the North Beach at 17.30 on the 24th so if you arrive on time give me a little wave!!!

                   

                  Just had my meeting with Lorena she is lovely!!! This time next week I will be so excited!!!

                   

                  I will keep an eye on here so if you have any questions just let me know

                    this is for the TROPICAL garden view room:

                     

                    3 nights- $710 pp

                    4nights- $930 pp

                    5nights- $1135 pp

                     

                    she also said these prices do NOT include transfers because the hotel isn't doing it that way anymore.

                     

                    i am so happy i asked you guys, because now i know that I have to look further into this. if its due to the time of year thats fine, but if someone is getting over on me id like to know!!!!

                    Here are the prices my agent provided for my wedding this November, it includes all taxes and transfers.

                     

                     

                    3nts:  DBL  $904 per couple w/transfers
                    4nts:  DBL $1180  (same)
                    5nts:  DBL $1456  (same)
                    6nts:  DBL $1732  (same)
                    7nts:  DBL $2008   (same)

                      Please let me know what is the plan for the brides who are using the pool deck. I did not pay all that money and travel so far to have my wedding reception next to a construction site. Thank in advance. Hope your wedding is all you ever dream.
