I neve rained !!! But them beging us to move it the whole time before made me a nervous wreck so until I actually walked down the isle on the beach I was a ball of nerves and very aggravated. Stay calm tho because Lorena is a doll and she really did a great job! My beach ceremony was beautiful and so was my cocktail hour on the terrace. I highly recommend this because my guests are still talking about the terrace and the mariachi band! My reception on the deck and the music was better than I could have imagined honestly (we danced and kept warm lol) I will write a detailed review soon !

 

Congratulations!

Hello,

 

I was looking back a few pages to find something, and I don't think I saw anyone answer your questions yet...  just in case:  

 

1, 2:  For the wedding cakes and floral centrepieces you will get a list with pictures to choose from.  The cakes are pretty basic, but you can upgrade to fancier versions for an upcharge.  There are lots of options for centerpieces, different styles with different flowers, vases, candles, etc.    

3:  The cost for children is less than for adults - children ages 6 - 12 are charged $24 (+ service and tax) for the dinner.  There is no cost for children under 6.  Children above 12 are the same price as adults.

4, 5:  The sound  system is not included with any of the wedding packages, for the ceremony or reception.  The price I have for the sound system is $180 + tax per hour.

6, 7, 8:  I think chairs with white covers are included in all of the packages, but chair bows are not.  You can either bring your own, or rent them for $5 each.  For beach weddings, I think the bamboo arch and white fabric is included in all packages.  Adding coloured fabric or flowers to the arch costs extra though.

9.  The newlywed package includes a welcome letter, fresh fruit and bottle of sparkling wine in your room when you arrive, special turn down service and breakfast in bed with mimosa.

Hi ladies, I just got my pricing solidified with our TA (thanks again Rachel for the referral!) so I'm moving forward with making decisions on photography and add-ons. We are having a small group with us (abt 20 in total including myself and fiancé) and we are doing the fake cocktail hour, so we may just do the basic (free) wedding package and add what we want. Does anyone who went this route know the cost of the reception dinner per person (adults and children)? Thanks in advance!

If you want to see pics before I get a chance u can request me on Facebook at emilytodaro@yahoo.com... I also want to say that my color scheme was supposed to be pink and purple but looking back nothing really had pink in it and I regret using lavender for my table runners because they basically weren't noticeable at all on the white table cloth.. I should have asked what it would look like first cause it was basically a waste.. I wish Lorena woulda advised me on how light they were. Does anyone know how long the pics take to come? We did package 3 and I'm not sure how long till I get to see some pics

Hello!  The gold and silver menu per person is $48 + tax and service fees, so it comes to $60.48 per adult.  The kids menu (ages 6 - 12) is $24 + tax and service, so $30.24.  There is no charge for kids under 6.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
