We're doing the avocado salad for appetizer, I originally was going to have the beef fillet with mushroom and chicken stuffed with seafood but I think I'm changing the chicken, we asked the WC what it was stuffed with and it's salmon shrimp and something else...after I heard that it didn't sound that appealing,so most likely the jumbalaya rice with shrimp. Dessert-I'm thinking just plain cheesecake maybe-not to sure.

    I can send you a pic of the centerpiece, I'm doing lanterns with 3 different size candles in it, got them at ikea,(I love candles but had to think about the wind factor) showed friends the ccenterpiece and they couldn't believe it was all for less than $25. Two small white circular vases which I'll have to get orchids to put in them and a photo frame which will have my dog's pic with the table # (had to incorporate my lil girl somehow :) And river rocks surrounding the centerpiece. My colors are black white and light pink.

    I'm pretty sure that you don't pay the outside fee as long as they don't enter the resort so you can meet them-couple of brides did that.

      Congrats Cassie!  I'm so glad to hear you had such a lovely experience.

       

      I have a question for ladies that have already had their wedding. For those of you that had the legal and symbolic ceremonies...can you please let me know exactly how the cereony went.  What did the justice of peace or minister say, what was done? and so forth. 

       

      Our wedding is on Aug 29th and the ceremony and reception will be on the beach.  I don't have a back up plan in case of rain.  I think I will suck it up and pay the damage fee if necessary.  Rain that time of year lasts only a couple of minutes.  If by chance it's thunder storming all day I think I will probably just cry :o(

        Hi bride2b,

         

        Our wedding is the 22nd of July, almost one month after yours, so exciting yours is just 3 short months away!!!!  I have a countdown app on my iphone...cheesy I know, fam makes fun of me b/c even though yesterday was 124 days to go I'll still look today to see 123 days left LOL So what r picks for food, centerpieces, and everything else. (I love to read about all the details :0)

        I hope Ivan's prices aren't too steep, I looked at del sol and it was like 2400 for like 4 hrs i think, a little too steep. Trying to save by bringing centerpieces, originally I was going to pick the box of roses that was tied with a bow but for 180 per table (6-7 tables total) would be a bit much to say the least. (We have about 65 guests)

                      Bride2B22 - for the folowers - how are you avoiding the outside vendor fee?  Will you be sending a friend or family member to pick up the flowers for you and bing them to the resort?
