I will not have assigned seating.  I like the un-formality of a destination wedding and will continue that with the reception.  One less thing I will have to worry about.  I figure with such a small group everyone will know each other/ get to know each other come reception time so it won't matter who sits next to who.

Quick question - we are debating as to whether to have assigned seating at the reception or not.  We have 30 people total, so 3 tables of 10 with a buffet.  What is everyone else doing?

    Blondy, we have 28 people including us. We asked for a sweetheart table and I think we will split the rest between 4 round tables. We have place cards for each table but will let them arrange themselves. At least that is the plan right now.

      OMG, after pining through ALL of my emails regarding photography... I realized IT'S NOT SASCHA who's charging crazy... it's Del Sol! Ha, my bad!! I'm clearly getting super confused with all of these vendors...


      Thanks anyway ladies -- now I remember that we ruled out Sascha because he had never done an Indian wedding before... sorry for the confusion!

        We had 21 guests and did a hollow square table.  It worked out well because you could talk across the table if you wanted, everyone could see everyone.  We didn't do assigned seating. It worked out great!

          Our group is 29 people including us.  We are doing 3 round tables of 9 and a sweetheart table for us.  I just order my place cards tonight.  I wasn't planning on doing them at all, but I have a few people coming by themselves and wanted to make sure they were seated with people they would feel comfortable with.  I also wanted to have the wedding party sit at one table together with their dates.

            Please please please.....can you help me! I have Lorena also and she has been HORRIBLE! I literally had 3couples/rooms that were so frustrated they couldn't get there questions answered by Lorena after 2 VM and an e-mail....so they went and booked w/ a Travel Agent! Which sucks b/c now I'm sure they wont give us the room night credits! Ahhhhh.............


            We are booking under a VIP membership...and I am astounded at the service we are receiving!


            I would love to see your letter you wrote and if you could provide me w/ Lisa contact information and the e-mail for the membership department so I can do the same that would be great!


            My e-mail is



            I finally had it with Lorena. We had a pretty big issue this past Monday and I was beyond upset!!!! Tuesday afternoon I wrote a letter 4 pages long and emailed it to her, Lisa and blind copied the membership department. I outlined what my experience has been from the beginning, what issues I was having, and what I hoped they would do about it.


            This morning I received a response from Lisa. She was very nice and fixed all of my issues. I hate that it had to get to that point but I am glad that I handled it and got the issue resolved.

              Hi Kristie~


              I'm so excited....I finally found someone getting married the same day as me!!!!! I have reserved 4 pm for the ceremony.......let's stay in close touch and we can compare since we will be there the same time!


              I was also looking at LaLuna....I wonder if they allow splitting b/w the 2 of us at all? Worth checking into!


              Congrats and I'm super excited!

                love the hollow square idea! I think that is brilliant! Sounds really intimate as everyone can talk and laugh together!


                Do you have pictures? did you post a review? would love to see...lizselzer@gmail  is great to send info to!


                Did you move the tables after dinner for the reception? I have around the same # of guest- but I am excited for the dancing after dinner during our reception.


                Thanks and CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
