        They provide the flowers for the cake.  You can choose any colors you want.  We liked the way the one in the photo looked, so we asked for those colors.  It was the fondant, and what we tasted of it was pretty good.  We were too busy drinking, dancing and partying to actually sit down and eat much of the cake.

          The dress came from Dillards. It was a big hit.

           

          Here is a (poor quality) photo of the back:

            Yes, we paid $288 for the cocktail party at the Caribbean Terrace (I forgot to list that charge on my breakdown of the check-out bill).  48 guests x $6 per person.  They set up food (sorry, no pics) and the cocktails were available from the existing bar.  The food was out from 7pm - 8pm, and then at 8pm Greg surprised everyone by having a fireworks display that was set off on the beach, directly in front of the caribbean terrace.  The fireworks were kinda pricey (if you looked at the bill I provided) but they were a great surprise to everyone.

            Aww I need to go to Dillards! :)

             

            That's not bad at at for the party then! Would you recommend the privacy of the Caribbean terrace over say the Tuscan Terrace for a welcome/rehersal dinner/cocktail hour?  I still don't know what I'm going to do yet.

                There was a group of 2900 guests that all came together with a group called 'DreamTrips'.  They were staying in the Sunrise section and after hours we would head down there to party with most of them.  The night of the wedding, they were partying in the sunrise lobby and it was thier 70's theme night.  Made for some great photos.

                  The atmosphere at the Caribbean Terrace is unmatched at the resort.  It is incredible up there.  The only thing is, its not really private.  They do not block off the stairways or anything, and the bar remains open for anyone....so random guests can in fact walk up and join in (although this was not an issue for us)

                   

                  I would choose the Caribbean Terrace as my first choice. The extra $6 pp charge is worth the ambiance.  That terrace is gorgeous...and already has seating.

                  The Venado Terrace would be my second choice.

                  The Tucan Terrace would be my third choice.
