    I am pretty sure that hors d ourvres are included. They are on my quote.

      Did you guys pay this?

      Did anyone use another company to get your guests there?
      we did our guests transportation through Kelley - it was so nice to know that was taken care of. The bus they send is really a nice bus. Our guests commented on how nice it was that we took care of getting them from the hotel to the marina and back.

      I personally wouldn't have done it through a different company - what if they don't show up and you're at LC getting ready, how would you know? Or what if they are late to pick you up? Doing it through LC may be a little more $ but the peace of mind is totally worth it.

        I see your point about the transportation. Gives me something to think about. Thanks!

          I am pretty sure the passed hors d ourvres were included in my package too as part of the cocktail hour. Like Tara I didn't eat any of them because we were taking pictures. The wait staff did save us a little plate of them though (which I thought was nice) but still we didn't eat any, there was just too much going on! If it wouldn't have been for Nicole telling me to sit down and eat something I don't think I would have even ate dinner! She was good though about making sure I ate...which was a good thing

              I agree! It would be nice for your guests! $30 is not too bad :)

                I wrote Kelley about this last week and here is a copy of our correspondence.:

                Just 2 weeks away from our sailing date.
                Thinking about final music selections and I have a quick question.

                I’m planning to bring my ipod and looking for a bit of information regarding how much music to bring. – OK, SOUNDS GOOD TO ME……

                1.- Do I need to worry about the boat ride over for my guest or does your staff already have that covered? (I heard they are pretty intertaining) – NO, I CAN TAKE CARE OF THE MUSIC FOR THIS ONE……
                2.- Approx how many minutes of music do I need (if any) before the actual ceremony (like while guest are getting seated and waiting for the ceremony to begin). – JUST PLAN ON 20 TO 25 MINUTES HONESTLY…. HALF THE TIME PEOPLE ARE IN THE BATHROOM AND FRESHENING UP, SO THEY ARE NOT EVEN PAYING ATTENTION TO THIS UNTIL IT IS CLOSER TO THE START TIME…….
                3.- Approx how many minutes of music after the ceremony (Cocktail hour) - LETS GO WITH 45 MINUTES HERE….
                4.- Should I have music planned during dinner? (how many minutes) – SURE, ANOTHER 45 MINUTES AND THEN I ALWAYS HAVE BACK UP CD´S IF WE NEED MORE…….

                Hope this helps.

                  Hi Everyone,

                  I've been MIA for awhile and our wedding date is just 2 weeks away so I thought I would do an update. Everyone here has been so helpful I feel I need to share our plans as well so it may benefit new brides just starting to plan.

                  We are doing something a little different and I know there are one or two brides following after us doing the same thing.

                  We booked the Carnival Splendor leaving out of long beach, CA (since most of our family and friends are from Calif they don't need air fare). Inside Cabins started as low as 379 pp for an all inclusive week. So someone on a budget could come for a total cost with tax, tip, everything for approx 500.00. We booked balcony suites for approx 800.00 pp. We have 30 confirmed cruising with us.

                  I booked an inside cabin for my photographer and his wife right across the hall from us. I found a local photographer and offered to pay for a weeks vacation/cruise if they take the pictures (It took him about 15 seconds to accept). Total was approx 1100.00 and we will have pictures of the entire cruise and all the ports.

                  We depart Long Beach Sunday 2/21/10 and we are at sea all day Monday and Tuesday. I booked the Goumet Steak house on the cruise ship for all 32 of us to have our dinner rehersal/ bachelor /ette party the night before we arrive in Puerta Vallarta at 30.00 pp.

                  We arrive in P.V. at 9:00 AM on Wednesday 2/24/2010 and kelley is picking me and my MOH and Photographer up at 11:00 am to go to L.C. I'm bringing silk flowers for table decorations and some heavy glass vases. A blown glass cake topper, and silk flower petals for the tables.

                  The rest of our guests and the groom will meet the boat at 3:30. The Carnival cruise ship docks at the same dock that Kelley will pick us up at so I didn't need to arrange to get anyone to the dock. Our guest can enjoy P.V. for half the day than meet at the doc, dressed and ready to go at 3:30.

                  Wedding at 5:00, Dinner at 6:30, then we are all going to the rythem of the night show to end the day. They do the rythem of the night show a little earlier to accomodate the Cruise ship. We will then leave L.C. after the show with the rest of the cruise ship passengers and be back to the ship when it departs P.V. at 10:00 PM.

                  We felt going to the show would be much more exciting then having a longer reception since we didn't feel any of our family or friend would dance much.

                  We have just a best man and a MOH. We both have 2 kids and all 4 of them are married. I asked each of our daughters to ware a aqua blue dress and all of the men are wearing black mexican wedding shirts.

                  I'll post a review when we return.
                  Michele

                      I haven't told Kelley that I got a quote from them. I am waiting to see what she can come up with.
