Hi girls:

It seems like a three ring circus at the resort right now!  I think that Claribel must have left some sort of cluster for them to sort through and that is what is causing all of the issues.

 

I am 5 weeks out and am just over the stress. I am going to go down there and if they marry us great, if not I guess I can get myself and 20 guests a free week out of it since I have documentation that they reserved my date and time! Ha ha...

 

Skygirl, thanks again for the number to reach Christina/Mercy.  As of right now I have been told that they will make an exception for us on the three day rule even though we are only having a symbolic ceremony.  I was able to provide proof that I was told this didn't matter.  Apparently it does, so for all of you girls coming up...be there three BUSINESS days in advance. They will count Saturday as  a day if you get there in the morning.  It is apparently too stressful to plan the wedding in less than that. It will all work out!  I am just glad that I finally got a response from someone after 10 months. I had to threaten leaving with my guests and getting married elsewhere!  If your wedding is close, hang in there and be persistent.  Hopefully you will hear back if you keep on them.

 

I do have a question...since we were told last year we would have all the dinner venues to choose from as well as beach/pool, what are they doing now if they have three brides a day? Say we all want the pool reception?  When I signed on to this resort for the wedding they were promising one wedding a day, so I wasn't worried. Now it seems there are limited options for reception venues.  What are they doing if everyone wants one place?

 

Good luck everyone!

@Acutie, i hear you... but i honestly do think it will work out for you. As far as the 3brides and the reception, i think there is weddings in the morning, afternoon and later during the day. Thats how they are making this work, i guess, But dont quote me on this...

Skygirl: I think you are prob. right. Maybe some girls do a lunch reception or something?  I emailed but haven't heard back...

 

Does anyone know approximate length of the runner on the beach?  I am trying to order some rose petals and have no idea how many to get.

I have seen a few pics where they just do a white runner, I think that is included in the gazebo decor.When doing a beach ceremony it looks like they just lay it down on the sand.  I was planning on covering this with a dense pack of rose petals.  Mercy told me silk is ok and that they will clean them up after the event so it is not like litering. I have done a lot of research and I think for the price that www.petalgarden.com has the best quality and color options.  They also have a calculator that helps you figure out how many petals you need. If you buy in bulk you can buy 3000 in a bag for about $50.  For dense packing on 15 ft it is approx 4500 petals.  I have no idea though how long the aisle is!  I was going to just buy at the resort, but they are 25$ per bag and a bag consists of only petals from a dozen roses! That wouldn't get me very far.  My only two decorations that I really wanted were the petals and pomander balls. I am also disappointed in the pricing for those, I think it is like $12 per pomander plus 15$ per hook to hang it on! If you need 8-10 that is crazy!  I decided to purchase some tissue pom poms off of Etsy. They come flat so will not take up much packing space and were inexpensive.  I got 15 so I can do the aisle as well as hang some in the archway.  Hopefully someone may know about the length of the aisle!  I can't wait for this to get here, 5 weeks left!
