1. Where did you have your rehearsal dinner and what was the set up? Just tables set in a circle? What was the food you asked for? It looked scrumptious.
**we had the rehersal dinner on the beach it was beautiful!! the food was in a buffet style and was awesome! everyone was super happy w the food, they had a chicken, meat, fish and veggies so something for everyone!
Did you have music hooked up?
**not for the rehersal dinner
2. Did you have a dance floor at the reception?
**we didnt do a big reception, just the cocktail hour w hot appetizers and they brought the bar to the beach . again the food was plenty to fill everyone up. I used the flowers from my the chair aisles for ceter pieces and it worked out great!
3. How much did you have to pay for the flowers on the cake?
**i highly suggest waiting until you get there to get the flowers! I too was quoted prices from amber and they were out of control expensive. So i took the same pixs to my wc on site and she ordered the .... the cake topper was $45.00 and i had them decorate the standard cake w the "pearls" on the layers, they didnt charge me extra. I think you have a couple of options for the free cake
I just spent an hour with Amber tody and they are charging so much for flowers that are not martha stewart's.The cake is also 2 tiered square and plain , not even with a trim like yours.
**we were quoted for flowers.... (this is crazy)
my bouquette 450.... paid 220
moh bouquette 350.... paid 100
center pieces/ railing decor 4x 150 each ..... paid 4x 45 each
boutineer 50 each ..... paid 30 each
And i used the exact same pictures to show the WC on site that i emailed to Amber. Thats over $1000 difference!!
4. Did you have the option of going to the night club- liquid - after the reception? I notice you went to RIcks and was wondering if the night club is lame.
**we really wanted to goto Ricks after which was probably not the best choice only because I had grander expectations of what it was going to be like, I assumed it was going to be really busy, fun live reggee music so we rented the 2 private cabanas. well it turned out there was no one there when we arrived, the place was empty (i think they were annoyed we even showed up....) So we spent 900 there on cabana's, drinks and more food and we could have stayed at the resort (it would be the only real regret i have). BUT we did go back the next day for sunset and cliff diving and it was GREAT!! Liquid is ok, its small, im not really a "club" girl but my friends that went had a great time.
**dont stress!! the WC on site is awesome, Nickesha Greenfield. I even called her before I went and she is so calming and so great at her job. She makes sure it all happens just perfect!!
Lots more to come for you and Sherri.
Lots of questions but I need answers, I'm so worried!!!
