    SKing I'm wondering if Pilar is overwhelmed with swaps she's putting her foot down. What were you wanting to swap?

      Well we're bringing our own officiant so i definitely wanted to swap that...and then i'd like to swap things like the champagne toast and centerpiece thats included for either flowers for my bms, or extra people for the reception.  But she said no trading.  I asked her this back in June.  I am going to keep asking though.

        Ldunson, thanks for the info about the flowers!  Definitely worth looking into.

            I've emailed them about certain flowers and colors since I didn't see them offered on the website.  They said that they could do them.  They also have a live chat I think.  They have really good reviews on the site, too!

              Well Pilar finally got back to me...to tell me that Ana is now my WC.

              She did say we could do the champagne toast for no extra cost for the extra people, and she asked to see a picture of what I mean when I say I want to string white lights in the bamboo.

              She did not update my budget with my changes to photograpy and to take out the cost of the centerpieces though so I guess I have to start over with Ana.

              Oh and she did confirm that only one centerpiece is included in the divine package.

                Tracy, you probably mentioned this before, but are you using the resort's DJ?  I'm most curious about how the DJ handles the reception...introducing the wedding party, and the doing the different dances, cutting the cake, etc.  I think in the one review out there for Now Jade, the bride said the DJ didn't do any of those announcements.

                  Also, did anyone else notice the table sizes in the pictures of the bamboo room?  They are small tables with 4 chairs.  Is that what we'll have for the reception?  That could be an issue with centerpieces!

                    I was also wondering about the DJ aswell and what they offer other than playing music cause i can do that with an ipod dock?

                    Erin, I was told that the tables we are provided are the large round ones for 8people and one rectangular one for the head table unless your reception is at the festival terrace where they will only use the long rectangular tables as there is not much space to serve.
