    Ok so just went through the catalog.  So questions if anyone can answer them.  I really like gerbera daisies but I was thinking of getting more of a purple/plum bouquet.  Does anyone know if I can get that in my included bouquet?  And I saw your green hyndrangeas Trisha, I know you had those in your bridesmaid bouquet but I'd like them in mine, do you think they would be included?  Thank you! :)

    They will not be included in the package. I requested the same flower and had no luck, but it never hurts to ask.

      Sorry! I was thinking of the wrong flower! I was told that purple calalillies were not part of the package.

        White cala lillies are - but the dark purple ones are not
        They will cost extra. I had them in my bouquet just a few days ago - but i did not order them through the resort - i used an outside floristn as they were much cheaper

        The hydrangeas in mine were "included". By that I mean that bridesmaid flowers weren't part of the package, but the cost of the flowers was very nominal so I'd think those wouldn't be a problem

          Good! I'll wait a bit before asking Maria, but it's nice to know what I can expect!

          Does anyone know what the max # of people you can have in the a la carte restaurants? We are putting down our deposits with our travel agent this week and I am nervous to do this without knowing this because we can't really afford to do the per person private dinner. When I first emailed the resort a few months back when we were just looking into things, Paloma told me that "Our wedding packages go up to 60 guests" Does anyone know if this is in fact true?? I emailed the resort last week, but no response yet :(

           

           Thanks!

              With the a-la-carte restaurants for your reception dinner, how far in advance did you have to communicate the information with the WC? I'm really scared that there will be more than 1 wedding that night, and the dinner slots are overlapped/unavailable, and I REALLY don't want that to happen.

                I am havin the same concern... someone told me there is only the option of a seafood restaurant and some other restuarant... I HATE SEAFOOD.

                 

                If I don't get a response I may FREAK out.
