          Hey girls!

          Garanic:Welcome to the forums! They have been a ton of help for me.  I would have been clueless without them.

          SommerC:Thanks for the info on efavormart, they are much cheaper!  I just wish they had a little bigger selection in petal colors.  I may have to change it up a bit for those prices though!

           

          I finally heard from Mercy today.  Apparently the aisle runner for the beach is 10 ft long if anyone is wanting to get petals. I am going to try to do a moderate coverage, so won't be needing as many as I thought.

           

          She did confirm that Castaways is no longer an option for a private wedding reception dinner.  She stated that currently the options are beachfront, ballroom or Carnival Terrace(I think this may be the buffet) overlooking the fountain.  I asked her about the quiet pool that Vav had and she said that is not an option. I am not sure if that means for me on my day or in general. Honestly I am extremely disappointed at this change in rules.  None of those venues are appealing to me in any way.I would love to do the beach but the wind and heat are a huge factor! If I would have known this months ago it would have made my resort decision a little different.  She said they will be doing 3 weddings on my wedding day.  Grrrr.............I told her to reserve the Carnival Terrace for us, I guess that is the best option. From what Vav and Sarah said they make it awesome no matter what, so lets hope for that!

            wow the fact that they're changing the reception locations worries me a little. The ballroom is too big for us and the beach wont be an option, so I guess i only have one choice. After booking our DJ and Photographer I was actually calming down and relax, but reading this makes me feel uneasy.

             

            Has anyone of the brides that has their wedding at NOW seen the carnival terrace? any reviews?

              I would like reviews on this as well.  I think they may have just started using it as an option, but am not sure.

               

              And get this, my soon to be mother in law just called and said our travel agent called and said NOW has overbooked rooms the week of our wedding. They are now downgrading everyone who paid for ocean view rooms to garden view. How is this even possible? We paid 6 months ago! My guests are all freaking out and I haven't spoken to my travel agent to see what is going on. To be honest I have been getting more and more frustrated over the last 10 months since I made my decision to go with this resort, but this takes the cake.  What if we show up and they tell people there are no rooms? Ahhhhh! One month away from what was going to be a stressfree gorgeous wedding and now the resort seems to not only over booked weddings but rooms as well.

                  Ladies, I have been back and forth with this one..... When are you guys giving out your OOT bags? My friend is also doing a destination wedding, she says that she will be giving hers out at her bridal shower. Don't know if I like that because I would like my guests to use the items while there, what if they forget it? I was thinking that I would bring them down (or ship them down) and hand them out on the day we arrive....but there is always the worry of weight. I had requested my reception at the Capers restaurant also so I don't know if I should be worried, I know there is another wedding on my day :(
