    I wanted to do signature cocktails too but wasn't sure what the resort offered... did you email the coordinator or just knew?!  I couldn't read the menu perfectly on here (it was a long day staring at a computer screen lol) but I LOVE the look of it!!!

     

    As always, thanks for being an inspiration!!!!

    so, i'm concentrating my efforts on all things decor and wedding weekend related items...we're hosting a welcome reception in the resort's lobby bar and i decided we needed 'signature cocktails' so i created a cocktail menu...of loaded (alcoholic) and unloaded (virgin) drinks...

     

    take a peak...

      I know you are leaving soon.. so I was wondering if you had planned any excursions for you or your group? and what they were if so?

        hi, sllefebvr!

        no formal excursions are planned...i want to avoid 'overscheduling' things for our guests..most of our guests are only coming thursday to monday and time goes by fast when you're on vacay..so other than welcome dinner, our wedding and a bachelor breakfast and bachelorette breakfast, i'm not planning any other 'group' activities.

         

        i will be including info and details on excursions in our welcome packets though.

          hey, tori!

           

          i contacted our resort's WC and got the 'green light' before coming up with the cocktail names.

           

          i'd check with your resort, i bet it won't be a problem.

              Michael's is pretty good about ordering paper in bulk, too. I'm making my invitations, and we got all of our paper from there. Two colors for 100 invitations, paper for Response Cards, Additional Information, and At Home Reception cards all for $50. They gave me the sale price which was 4 for $1 of the 8.5 x 11 and 2 for $1 of the large scrapbook paper. On top of all of that, you can use your %15 off of your total order from the newspaper or your educator discount. It's an awesome deal. ;)
