Ladies, for any of you who had a reception dinner at a restaurant, did you end up being able to do your first dance or any of the tosses there?  Or did you do that at cocktail hour?

 

Did you use the resort CD player?  Did you bring your own?  Or did you have to rent just for the few minutes needed for these events?

 

Were you even ALLOWED to do your first dance and stuff at the restaurant?

 

Thanks so much!! I'm just trying to figure out logistics right now, we're 5 weeks away!!!

Thanks to all of the recent brides who have posted pictures (I would quote them all but there's so many!!!), especially of your TTD sessions.  You all look amazing! I'm now considering a TTD session for us too.

 

Thanks also for the posts about paying for your upgrades. etc before you leave.  Joannis told me that we had to pay in advance as well, so I'm glad to know that we really don't have to that. 

 

So yesterday, my future MIL threw me a surprise shower!  I was absolutely surprised and blown away by the well wishes from everyone who attended.  She invited her side of the family and since the majority of them will not be making the trip, it was so nice to get together with them before the wedding.  I just felt so loved and was amazed at how they were welcoming me to the family.  She made sure my Mom, Grandmother and Sister were there too!  It was too cute!  The funniest moment actually came from my grandmother.  She was the only one that bought me lingerie!  Lol!  Go Grandma!

49 days until I'm a Mrs!  That shower just made it so much more real!

 

 

I hope you ladies all had a wonderful weekend of planning.

I had my meal at at the Caribeno restaurant......we ended up doing a lunch instead of a dinner because my ceremony was at 1pm....and we didn't want a huge gap in the time schedule before we did drinks with music and dancing. The wedding coordinator there will pretty much ask you what YOU WANT and make it happen. There really isn't much they will say no to...if YOU WANT IT, THEY WILL DO IT;) After all, you are the most important guest they have there and want to do everything in there power to make you happy. We chose to just do cutting the cake at the restaurant and saved our first dance, dances with parents and speeches from best man and maid of honor for the cocktail hour that I kinda tweaked into a reception. I added extra time onto my slot and added the ipod system setup so we could incorporate the dances. They provided us with a microphone and allowed someone to introduce us as Mr. and Mrs, introduce our dances and you can also do your tossing of the garter and flowers there as well. I paid for two hours but they went well over the two hour limit.....not sure if it was because we tipped or because they were ok with allowing us to have more time. Either way, they will allow extra time if you need. But like I said, my coordinator wanted us to have a wonderful day and did everything in her power to make that happen. They will do the same for you, just tell them what you want and you will get it;)

Hello Ladies,

 

I was wondering if anyone could tell what the tables cost for the reception, (the Plain White one)

thinking of bringing my own sashes and table runner.

 

Thank You

Ana
