    @Kchenard - I'm having my reception at the Main Pool on Jan 26th!  What day are you arriving... You may see mine as an example!


    @Skygirl - That looks gorgeous!!  Beautiful Cake - More then enough, Like you said!   Exactly what I was thinking when I wanted Castaways, with the lanterns, I've bought lanterns... But, not exactly sure where they'll be hung... I think there is some lattice or something above where they put the head table by the pool....

      Donna Hewitt - We are arriving Jan 26th :) wedding day is the 29th. I originally wanted a long table for the wedding party and round tables for the rest of the guests but my numbers keep changing, people adding on and some people cancelling. I also wanted lanterns but haven't bought them yet because I am not sure where to hang them. You might be right about being able to hang them where the head tables is :)

        We are leaving on the 29th! Hopefully I'll get to see you in your dress!  I know what you mean about the numbers changing... Hard to plan - But thinking, I will just sort that part out when I get there... Making some extra centrepieces just in case!

          So Divine it is - No more questioning for me!! haha

          Ya for your wedding it would be better to do a package :-)  So many decisions to make and different prices.. i really had to sit down and do a bunch of different situations/calculations to see what works best for us.

              Our big day is getting closer and closer, only 2.5 weeks to go - Luisa is my wedding coordinator and I feel like her English isnt the best, did anyone has/had her as WC?


              Also for the past brides, does anyone has pictures of the Carnival terrace? This is one of our reception options and I still have a hard time imaging how it would look like. We have 30 guests + 1 DJ.  Does anyone know if it would be too crowed to do a reception there?


              Thank you guys!

              I am also interested in pictures of the Carnival terrace as that is where I am having our reception. So far we are a small group on under 20....

              Skygirl your pics are beautiful!!! I am feeling much better about the cake after I saw yours and that they do tie your colors into it!

              Now Larimar 8/9/13; I married my best friend! 29 of my closest friends and family celebrated with us! Couldn't have wished for anything better :)

                Skygirl - did they put the flowers on the cake or did you bring your own?

                  For the cake, i brought my reall touch flowers, and had them arrange it on the cake, i asked them to get the closest to my color ribbon, This cake was HUGE, back in a states this would be the size we get for 75-100ppl. I can not stress enough, how huge it was, it was excellent. We did each layer in different flavor...not like i got to taste it much, but everyone said it was great. I brought the 1full suitcase 40lb with all decor, sashes, flowers etc.... i couldnt be happier with food also....

                  Doing a reall touch flowers  was the best thing i ever did! I get to keep my bouqets, and all i keep hearing was how awesome the bouqets were and no one could believe they were not real. 

                  Any questions, ladies please ask!Im here for you, feel free to private message me also, since i may not look through all the posts...

                  One more thing, BRING your own hair spray, the super strong one. They used ton of hair spray on me, but im not sure if it was from huminity,,, but by the time reception dinner started, you couldnt even tell i had my hair done, also keep in mind my hair were down, thats what i wanted but i have known...i would have done updo... im not sure if there hairspray wasnt extraholdfirm....

                    Awesome advice about the hairspray!  Did you do the buffet or sit down dinner?
