    I am! We just tried to get something different at every stage. two hot and two cold apps, we did chicken and beef apps and fish for dinner. That way we can try a little of everything. Also if you have a large portion of people who are allergic to fish or something it might be easier to go with the chicken or beef. Thats really the only thought I put into it. I can't go down and sample the food so its pretty much a guessing game. I'm hoping the atmosphere will be what people remember!

      good point, its so hard to make a choice for everyone. I was wondering if we could mix hot and cold  hors d'oeuvres , I'm glad we can. When is your wedding, magirl?

        Has anyone considered using the hotel photographer, or have any information on the hotel photographer?

            I visited the Now Sapphire in the beginning of June.  My Fiance and I were there celebrating an anniversary so we got a private dinner on the beach.  The hotel photographer took pictures of us.  We viewed the pictures, and personally, I did not like any of them.  I felt that the pictures we took ourselves were better.  I was not impressed and for my wedding, we are hiring La Luna photography.  I like the photojournalistic approach though, and she did not seem to do that.  It may just be my personal preference.

              Hey Vanessa56,

               

              I am using the hotel photographer since I am getting the Divine Package and it comes with it.  My sister is a photographer and she will be attending my wedding there so she will be doing candid shots throughout the week and during the reception.  I will mainly use the hotel photographer for the ceremony.  I have seen some of their pics and I thought they were nice.  I guess it depends on your budget and what you expect out of the quanity of photos taken.

                Ladies, Thanks so much for the feedback. We're trying to do the wedding on a tight budget, so the feedback is very helpful. We are also going with the Divine package, so we were considering using the hotel photographer to save some money. I guess we'll have to wait to see how many people are coming or work a photographer into the budget otherwise. I have also heard good things about La Luna photographers from some of the other ladies on the board.

                    How exciting! We will be there about a month after you.  Lucky you, an extra day! Too bad it will cost you...  are you planning on using the resorts photographers?
