    you can negotiate with them to bring your own linens. they may try to tell you that you have to do all the set up yourself...but you won't. they will take care of you

      Today, I made an attempt to start packing stuff for the wedding. I have three full bags already and still need to go get another bag to pack more stuff. I will have 4 full bags plus our luggage! I didn't realize I had this much stuff to take!
      Could you please post the map on the forum? I'd like to have a copy too. Thanks!

        I only brought napkins BUT I had quite a bit of decorations. My WC set everything up n/c.

          I am bringing in my own linens and napkins for my reception. They are going to set them up for me in the ballroom. I rented the linens from a company in NYC... but they aren't too expensive. They have every color and design you can imagine.

                      I just wanted to double check that the reception is free if you have 75+ room nights. FI and I have to pay our balance and right now we have 72 room nights. We are willing to pay the extra 3 if the reception will be free because we are also up to 60 people so that would be cheaper.

                      Free vs. $400 a table....I am hoping the reception can count as one of the "unlimited private functions." Does it?

                      Also what do you think of having a rehearsal lunch for only the family and bridal party at a restaurant and then a welcome dinner for everyone? I wanted to have a welcome dinner but now we have too many people for the restaurants and would have to get a private function. That means I would have to choose another buffet and location. I wanted it in a restaurant!!! I do not want people to have a buffet one night and then another buffet at my wedding, or have the welcome dinner be nicer than the reception!

                      If I have the welcome dinner inside it would be plated and nicer than the reception, I wish the reception could be plated instead of buffet! Where we are from in New York if your wedding is buffet then it is considered cheap.
                      Things that are sneered upon- Sunday daytime weddings, cash bars, and buffets.... I went to a wedding last weekend with a buffet and everyone was talking about it being buffet.... and not in a good way! I like buffet b/c you get to pick and choose but that's the way things are. FI has some rich snobby friends, and I feel like I would have to explain that outdoors there is no other option before they say something, but then I am thinking that the snotty people that I do not like are probably not coming and why do I even care what they think? These New Yorkers...not all are like that but there are too many that are!

                      Has anyone had the Polynesian menu, it says it has a carving station. How flexible are they with mix and matching? The mango cake with sticky rice just makes my stomach turn, ewww! Need some chocolate in that menu!

                      Anyway sorry to ramble I have a lot of questions. Good luck this weekend I cannot wait to see your review!!!
