    She said to tell them Anna sent you (some people she knows have gotten discounts on occasion, not much but it all helps). 

     

    Her opinion (from her hubby) Get either the No 5 monte cristo or the No 4 monte cristo.  The number 4 is a medium size, the number 5 is a smaller size.  She said do not buy no 3.  They are more expensive (thus will be suggested by the goldsmith) and her hubby thinks they dry out too quickly and are not as nice.  So don't get the No 3!

     

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you so much for the info Krys! And I will stay away from the #3. :)

      We are lookin to have about 25-ish, i think...we will see if the people who say they are coming actually come though :) I heard awhile ago, like last year, that is you had 20 people for the sit down dinner that they would then let your guests have a choice meal...this could have changes though, so double check on it for sure..

      What's the "certain amount of people? "that would allow you to have them choose their own meal? I don't want to have to puck for anyone either! Also kids are half price

        FYI to all, make sure your guests book early if they are serious about coming to your wedding... just $400 deposit to hold the room.... don't let what happened to me happen to you.... I sent out my invitations 5 mos prior only to find out the hotel is fully booked for the weekend of my wedding...my guests were turned away... we have 17 going now including us.... there are places to stay other than Beaches nearby, but then Beaches kills you on wedding day passes...ridiculous!

          btw...

           

          I mentioned earlier a possibility of using local island flowers for bouquets, or flower girl toss petals, here is the pricing they gave me;

           

          Bridal Bouquet with Bougainvillea @ $96 ea
          Bag of Floral Petals (Bougainvillea) @ $40 ea (rose petals cost $65)
           
          The only color they have available is pink.
           
          I am a little surprised, I feel like that is price gouging considering it's likely 100% profit since it grows everywhere... ahhhh decisions decisions!

            I honestly dont think these prices are that bad. I am a floral designer in South Jersey, and none of our brides boquets are under $100!!! You gotta remember there is labor involved, and cost of supplies..  I do think a bouqet of bouganvilliea would be very pretty, if your okay with pink. Hope that makes you feel a little better :)

                      Hello

                       

                      Misti can you please tell which location was the gazebo your had the ceremony? Or any of the past brides can answer this question please

                       

                      I'm pretty much not getting info or answer from Monica and when I do she seem to rush me or trying to sale something to me.  I told her we sticking with the BB package and any other things we may want, we will decide once we arrive.

                      Lizzdee my wedding is on July 9, 2011 at 4pm.  I know how you feel because most of my guests ( including my maid of honor) not going to make it because the resort, affordable rooms, are sold. So there only going to be us, my son, mom, aunt and godmother...done of my fiancee family going to make it too.  Its expected when having a destination wedding, I guess.
