I wasn't planning on menu cards. My understanding from Anel is that guests need to make their dinner selection before they arrive on-site.
@tcaurie07 We are doing the Divine package and I was told that extra people are $129/each. This includes extra chair set-up, dinner, bar service, extra cake, extra champagne, etc. etc.
The menu cards aren't for the guests to pick their meal, it's just a nice addition to each place setting that let's the guests know how many courses will be served and what they are being given since they only get to pick an entree. They aren't necessary but I like the way they add that little something extra to the place setting and I like that they give guests information about what they are eating
I think I would really like to do menu cards, I think I just need better descriptions of some of the items I have picked.
I am not doing menu cards, because I think I am going with a buffet instead of a plated dinner, but I do love the look of menu cards on place settings! Has anyone else on here done a buffet for the reception instead a plated meal? If so which one did you chose?
How many outside vendors are you all using if any? I know for sure I am going with an outside photographer, I actually booked Octavio Montes, after doing a lot of research. His work is really great and his prices were very reasonable for the quality of pictures he takes!
I was thinking about the buffet, but I am hoping we won't have enough people for it The options that Juan Carlos sent me for a buffet looked great though, I think you'd be fine with any of them.
I am using outside make-up and hair (Styling Trio) because my MOH is allergic to the makeup the resort uses, and I wanted airbrush makeup which the resort doesn't do. I am also using an outside photographer, Dean Sanderson. I am considering using an outside videographer but I am not sure it is really in the budget...... I know we get an hour of videography from the resort which turns into a 30 minute film. It's not my first choice but it might be the best option right now.
