    You can start working on it now. It seems like you have to send a million emails to get any informations. I was just sent an email with the flower options, cake options, and buffet menu. However the WC did not include any of the prices. So that will be yet another email I will need to send her. if you PM me I can send it  to you, since I am not up to the 150 posts I can not post it here.


    I am excited because slowly I am getting pictures of the different options that can be done.

            I feel a bit confused with the dinner options and I figured while I wait for the WC to get back to me I would reach out to you guys because you guys rock! So this is the thing, we are going with the Tangerine Package which of course includes the buffet dinner option (all 3 options kinda suck). I have since seen Three Course Meal Options circulating. So just so I can understand correctly, no package includes these options. They only come as an extra cost? I just want to be sure that there is nothing I can do to get these plated meal options other than pay individually for them


            Option 1 (01 entr©e + 01 main course + 01 dessert) $40

            Option 2 (02 entrees + 01 main course + 01 dessert) $45

            Option 3 (01 entr©e + 02 main courses + 01 dessert) $60


            Secondly, if this 3 meal option is at an additional charge than for those that opted to go with it and had the Tangerine package, do they somehow compensate you somewhere else, since our package does include a dinner buffet that you are not using??

              Ok so I went through my emails back and forth with the WC and the plated menu is included in the Strawberry package. We are doing the Strawberry package because we wanted to ensure that we had a privatized reception dinner.


              From Juana:

              For the reception on the Strawberry package you have included  Entr©e, main dish and dessert. Please find attached the different options that you can select for the dinner. You need to select one entr©e, one main dish and one dessert, everybody eats the same.


              Your package includes the reception in one of our ball rooms. If you want a open area it would be additional. Attached you will find photo of a ball room’s set up.  (please note that the center pieces are not included in your package)


              The ceremony locations that you can choose from are the garden, garden gazebo, ocean front gazebo or the beach. Let me know which one you prefer, so I can make the reservation on time for you. Please find attached picture of the locations.

                    I guess the confusion is that I was sent these menu options by another bride. These options are different from what I believe we get in our packages as such perhaps these are at an additional cost??? I will let you guys know what she (WC) says whenever she decides to get back to me. Thanks Octbride!

                      I gues it's because they don't give us complete information in their emails. It they would just send us a welcome package with everything it it we all would have alot less questions.
