      Hey Trivera, I don't have any swatches. But I have seen the different colors and I feel like they are close enough to what we want. The shade doesn't have to be exact exact for me.

        Ladies I have made some progress! I have the color swatches and the 2012-2013 price list of extras as well as pics of the bouquets that are included with the tangerine package. WC confirmed that the hoopa, chair covers, and bows for both reception and ceremony are included as well as colored table runners. She also gave me the okay to ship a box to the resort. I am super excited about this because I will be using my own centerpieces. I hate those pine cone things but I just cant pay $50 per table for the cuter ones. Anyway PM if anyone is interseted in these things =)

          Trivera- Can you email me the swatches? So since we can send stuff down I'm asuming that means we can use our own decorations. Awesome.

              Octbride what's your email address? As far as mailing a package I would also run it by whom ever your wedding coordinator is. Marlene recently assigned someone to me and she has been awesome with getting back to me on things.

                  We'll be getting married very close in time! Mine is at 5:00pm. Perhaps I'll see you at the salon!!! Really exciting. How's your planning going so far? Is Marlene your contact as well?

                    Trivera - I'll still check this forum once in a while so feel free to ask questions!  I'm still sorta wishing I was planning and DEFINITELY still wishing we were there so I'm happy to vicariously live through you ladies :)

                     

                    We did not have to pay extra for the cocktail hour, beyond the $12 per person.  I'm not sure if it's because we were having it in the garden gazebo - I can see them trying to charge you if you wanted to do it on the roof terrace or something.  One other idea we had when we were down there was doing cocktail hour in the walkway that leads to Bar Higuey & setting cocktail tables up along the edge.  Marlene vetoed that idea (shocking) and said she would be concerned about people spilling into the bar area of Bar Higuey, but I still think if we pushed for it, it would have been cool.

                     

                    In regards to the chicken dinner, yes, I agree that the picture makes it look kinda small.  But I don't remember being unsatisfied with the meal.  We also had the caprese salad as a starter and I was eating my face off all week so I definitely had an appetite!  I don't remember people jonesing for food but by the time we were at the Sports Bar after the reception (11:30pm-ish), I definitely downed some fries.  :) Most people had the beef tenderloin and I remember that being fairly substantial.  

                     

                    I don't think the food quantity is an issue - sorry to raise questions with that picture!

                     

                    Oct Bride - I don't remember the DJ's name or where he was from but Marlene had mentioned in an email that we could meet with him based on availability when we were down there but I just forgot to follow up with her.  We only had a DJ so he would play our iPod so I wasn't too concerned about meeting with him.

                      Octbride...LMAO!! Totally should already have your email and I do...was kinda of a "duh" moment. Yes the new woman that I have been assigned to is Susana, she has been surprisingly really on point and prompt.

                       

                      Sunny: Thanks for the clarification on the food! I still cant thank you enough for all your insight!

                       

                      On another note ladies I just got an email for a Vistaprint groupon!! Its $17 for $70 worth of merchandise. Perfect for tshirts, welcome brochures etc. Anyway so be sure to search location: Fairfield County, CT. Expiration date is August but needs to be purchased today. =)
