    My understanding is that if you have over 50 people you have to do buffett?!?! At least that's what Sandra told me?!?!

      Yes, I'm sure if you have over 50 people you have to do the buffett.
      I requested that a few of my guest have fish over beef and Sandra did not have a problem with it at all.

        I thought the buffet for over 50 people was only for the beach party (because that's the only place it's mentioned in the information guide) but I don't really know since it didn't apply to us (only 10 guests).

        It would suck to pay the additional money for silver or gold dinner and be forced to have a buffet (seeing as that money is paying in part for the service)

          That's what I thought too! The new wedding guide says it MUST be buffet for dinners over 50 people on the beach. My reception is at the seaside grill and i was hoping to serve from the golden menu.

          BTW I'm six months out. When does Sandra or Landy, I should say, start communicating with you? I've had so many questions but been hesitant to email because I know they are so busy and have other brides. My feeling is I should wait my turn.

            I just kept a list of all my questions I had and I sent them to Sandra about 3-4 months before the ceremony. She was very responsive then.

              Thanks! As you can imagine, I'm getting very ansy. I wanna know more about reception centerpieces....what kind of table they will have for a group of about 55...renting lounge furniture...etc etc.
              My mom wants to start buying stuff for the tables but since we don't know how many it will be I tell her to hold off. She says "just ask your WC"! If she only knew it takes forever and a day (that's if you're lucky!) for them to get back to you!

                Yes, it does take forever to get a response. They are alot quicker when your wedding is closer. They are now focusing on wedding that are 3-4 months and in...be patient....they will answer all your questions!

                  Just a heads up: I stocked up on sunblock, aloe, and mini tylonol... ALL FOR $1. This is a HUGE savings and they do not look cheap- I am picky.

                  Also, we bought little bottle coolers in the shape of a Hawaiian shirt, mini squirt guns, playing cards, mini loofahs (which is helpful when you are in the sand all day) and a few other goodies. They even had cute little totes that were hawaiian themed... but I was wanting to buy a little nicer one which I can afford now that I saved so much on the contents.

                  We are also planning on adding a few snacks which we plan on buying once we get there and I like the idea of a beach towel... but with the luggage restrictions I might skip that one.

                  Hope this post helps and remember EVERYTHING AT THE DOLLAR STORE IS $1!!! (Duh, right?!.)

                    Good mentality. You could try to send them a list of questions now, and who knows, if you get responses soon you are lucky, and if not then wait another couple months and send them again. It's nice of you to be fair, but if you haven't been bombarding them with questions, then I think it's fair for you to send one email with a list of questions.

                      I have about 100 peeps coming, Gold package, not buffet, and my guests get to choose two options for dinner. But, I'm doing it in the new ballroom place so I don't know if that makes a difference. Good luck to everyone to get what they want!
