We're going withe the International Buffet 2, and Mexican Buffet. We have almost 50% of our group that are vegetarians, so our options were a bit limited. I've read only good reviews about the "superior hor'deorves (sp?)" as well.
I think we decided to just do regular white cake, but I THOUGHT there was a tres leche option that I had previously heard good things about so I am definitely going to ask for that! If your wedding group is over a certain size do they automatically give you a second tier? Or do you have to specifically request/pay for that (we're doing the Pearl Shimmer package).
Also, check the desserts that come with your buffetsâ€¦I think it was the International 2 buffet (?) but it came with mini strawberry AND "cheese" cakesâ€¦so we figured we'd get to sample those flavors anyways! Although, neither of us are big sweets peopleâ€¦we prefer to drink our calories!
Does anyone happen to know how big the complimentary tables are? I think I've read before that they are 72x72 but I can't find that post anywhere, and I want to order overlays for the tables (I think I've decided on those versus table runners).
Also, did any previous brides get charged a set up fee if they asked for sashes to be tied on the chairs? I know there have been several posts about how much MP SAYS they charge per table, versus what they actually charge once you get there for the set up. From what I can tell, you can usually get away with not having to pay a fee if it is a simple set upâ€¦I'm wondering if the chair sashes crosses the line from "simple/free" to set-up fee.
