Yes dessert is also included (although ours ended up being kind of awful and almost nobody ate it.) Here is a photo of our cake so you can see the size. This is what is included in the package (this size anyway)

I am also deciding on a rehearsal dinner or welcome cocktail hour. We aren't going to have too many people with us so I feel like we probably would be going to dinner or to get drinks together anyways so I don't know if I need something scheduled.

 

Also, does the resort print out menus for the tables or do I have to do that?

The Festival Terrace is really pretty..but if the Buffet is open that night, then some of the other guests might see your wedding party and it may not seem as private. I had my wedding in the Bamboo room in Nov. and my guests were really thankful for the A/C after intense dancing! The Bamboo room also looks really pretty on its own without having to add any major decor.

Ana said she was going to print the menus...but I think she forgot so that was a bit unfortunate...but at least the food was good in the end! So if you want to be safe and you have the time..i'd print your own menus.

Hi All !

   I am considering Castaways for my reception location, but want to know how late it allows music/dancing. Also if anyone has pictures of a reception set up at the ocean terrace that would be great! You can email me at ahall5665@hotmail.com. I'm trying to decide between the two!

 

Thanks!!

 

Ashley

Hello ladies...

I was wondering if anyone had heard of or used sian photo?? I recieved a private message from someone who had no history telling me that they saw i had asked about a photographer and so they recommended sian photo to me, saying that they used them for their wedding. So i looked at the website and the photos were beautiful, and so i requested info. Something seemed off, i think they only accept cash??? Plus i didnt see anything on here about them... anyways just thought i would ask, or see if anyone had a similar experience? It could be nothing but my intuition said to just put it out there... Thanks ladies

Hello Again ladies!!! KimmySue or anyone else that has done this...I saw in pictures that you had striped straws and little banners with your date on the straws for the drinks at the cocktail hour...I am assuming you did this and not the resort...correct?

 

Thanks!! :)

can you tell me who sent you a message?  The company has been very shady and have joined this forum pretending to be brides and have tried to get other brides to use them.   I just posted a thread about them here: BEWARE: Sianphoto.com pretending to be Brides
 

We rarely making these big warnings about vendors but they have just been horrible with their tactics.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
