Congrats!  I am getting married Oct 2nd.  What day do you get in? We might be there the same time.  However, we leave on Oct 3rd to head to Le Blanc so we might not.

We are using the reservation for our rehearsal dinner.  We are doing it at Arrifcies (sp?) the Brazilian steakhouse.  Since we were at 35 people we didn't have too many choices.  How many do you have? That can limited where you will have your reservation.  I recommend checking out the Restaurant Review thread on here, it gives reviews of each restaurant as well as someone posted the limits for how many people they can accommodate.

 

 

 

What vendor are you using for the flowers if you don't mind sharing :)

Sorry for silly question, but how are you planning to explain your bouquet to the WC? Will she (WC) realise that you did not purchase the flowers from the resort? I would love to use outside florist to save money, since I want to have a lot of flowers at my wedding, but not sure how to go about it.

Hi Melissa,

I'm getting married just a little over a week before you, on November 18th. What stage of planning are you? I just signed a contract with MP today!! Yay! My next step is website, STDs and photographer. What package did you get?

I am using Marvin from Mayan Diseno Floral as well. Bouquets were $35 each, so much cheaper than the resort!  His options were great. The one thing I have heard about him is time.  Make sure you tell him to send it early.  We have having him drop them off at 9:00am for a 3:00pm wedding.  Hopefully they will keep that long, I am sure if I keep them in the air it will be fine.  Not certain how I am going to explain it to the WC.  I might just say the real touch? That could be awkward.  A few other brides on here have done it was well.  Maybe they have some tips?  We are only using him for bouquets and corsages.  We are skipping boutonnieres for the groomsmen as they are not wearing jackets anyway.  And flowers for the chapel will be handled by the resort.

Smart ladies! I'm just using my complimentary bouquet and got real touchish flowers from hobby lobby for bms because it just wasn't high on my priority list, but way to be resourceful! Btw, I'm keeping my free cocktail hour and just paying for the reception. But wc said I don't have to pay for another table of 10 since I just have 22 :)
