    I am not sure if my reply posted or not, trying to get used to new site :).  We decided to go with the beautiful beginnings and upgrade certain items.  The packages are really outrages for each table.  We are also going to do our own table arrangements.  We ended up adding and Arch, the white linens on chairs and upgrading the meal, we got a lot of freebies with the amount of people.  we have going.

    We are also doing gift bags which we are putting together. :)

      Hi Ceproto!  I LOVE your centerpieces!  Very "beachy" yet still elegant for a wedding.  Very nice, and thanks for sharing!!

        Ceproto,

         

        Perhaps you can let the rest of us in on what kind of freebies that you received for having soo many people attending. We too have a quite a few booked 23 adults and 3 children, travelling to Beaches January 16/11. I have a feeling that we are missing out on what we are entitled to. The only things that we were advised of was; the complimentary rehearsal dinner, the 35 min massage for my fiance and the mani and pedi for myself.

         

        Thanks

        Jordana

          Surely,

           

          Here is what we have so far

           

          1.  Free 1 hour Rehearsal Dinner (You can honestly book this at any restaurant, I believe)

          2.  On your 10th room you receive a free upgrade, which we are at

          3.  On your 12th room you receive a free voucher of approx $1200.00 which equals out to about 1 person free stay for 3nts/4days

          4.  Complimentary 30 min massage

          5.  Complementary mani/pedi and trial makeup (not sure if that was included)

           

          I think that about does it for us....I hopefully didn't leave anything off :)

              These are fantastic!!! Only one question for you...I was under the impression that you couldn't really bring in your own stuff as they dont let you set things up yourself....are they charging you a set-up fee to do this? Thanks in advance for any tips/advice you might haveregarding this.

               

              I will also do BB, but the prices of the flowers are way to steep for me to justify paying. (Especially since i am a floral designer here in NJ and get everything at whole sale prices!) The only thing i think i will upgrade is my bouquet, because i am a flower snob and i MUST have a fresh bouquet!!!!

               

              Thanks, talk to you soon!!

                Hi Ceproto,

                 

                I can surely use your TA's contact info.  At this starting point in our search, I don't know if I should be dealing one-on-one with the resorts or using the help of a TA.

                 

                Do I get better prices & upgrades using a TA?

                 

                Thanks,

                Kerry

                  They did want to charge us to setup the center Pieces but our TA asked if we could have a person from our guest party set them up and they said yes.  The catch here is that you cannot do your own centerpiece with the MS collection, this is only if you go with the beautiful beginnings package.

                    Kana2011,

                     

                    The key, I think is to get someone that has been there and knows the in ans outs of the resort and has a steady relationship with the wedding corridantors.

                     

                     

                    I would recommend here in a heart beat.  If you call or email her please tell her that you got her name from charity and mike cannella

                     

                    Please anyone feel free to use her she is WONDERFUL and very knowledgable.  Also from what I hear they are so busy there that if you ask them a questions they can take up to 5 days to respond.  In my opinion, now a days that isn't good enough :)  Leslie is extremely knowledgeable and timely.
