Hi all - Thank you for all the information. I am getting married at BP in November 2014 - umm, any day now! We have to finalize our buffet/cocktail app choices ASAP. There was a little confusion in the timing of this between the offsite and onsite coordinators. What appetizer/buffets has anyone chosen? What did you love/hate? I would LOVE LOVE some input!

 

Thanks!


OH - and did anyone do a farewell brunch? We are planning to, but they told us that the sky terrace and palenque terrace are super sunny in the morning and we would need to rent umbrellas from outside vendors. It is quite a lot of money for an event that I think people will trickle in and out of. Can anyone comment on whether these locations would be good for a brunch? Thanks!!!

@@rrstripes - We were told the same for the terraces, so we nixed our welcome brunch idea and decided to go w/ a dinner instead.  Of course, this means we need to rent lighting instead of umbrellas, but we figured it'd still be more comfortable

 

And ditto on hearing the buffet choices others have made!

@@tygrrlily - We sent across our food options and asked for our WC's opinion. We went with the Mexican Apps and Mexican Buffet for a welcome dinner on the beach. We went with International Apps and Cajun Buffet for our wedding. Cajun was my finance's choice!  We are still trying to figure out our rehearsal dinner - as we do not want to have it on the Infinity Terrace, but we are trying to confirm other locations or restaurants. Currently we picked Worldwide Apps and BBQ dinner for rehearsal if we get it planned. I wanted Italian and the wedding planner said that the Italian was popular, but my finance really doesn't like italian. We are doing the Mexican breakfast buffet for lunch and asked to have salsa, guac and tortillas included, if not already.

 

Just some ideas:)

@@rrstripes - we've sent in ours too but haven't heard back yet. We made a few substitutes - you're allowed to as long as it's like for like.

 

We're having 3 events:

 

Welcome dinner on palenque terrace. We chose Mexican apps and Caribbean buffet w a couple substations from the Mexican buffet

 

Rehearsal dinner/white party on infinity terrace. Don't love the infinity terrace but didn't want to pay the set up fee for the beach and wanted to have it at a different location. We chose BBQ buffet

 

Wedding at sky terrace. We chose cold hors d'oeuvres w some subs and Italian buffet but subbed the lasagna for the steak from the French.

 

Who are you going w for your decor? I've gotten quotes from Latin Asia and Zuniga

@@tygrrlily - thanks! I just made a few subs to the menu. I used Zuniga for some stuff, but also got centerpieces from another company (can't quite remember the name - will look for it). They created centerpieces are supposed to be just like some pictures I found on Pinterest (for around $40 - so not cheap at all, but cheaper than trying to carry/ship everything!).

@@TheBHolders - no there are a couple others. Ask your WC but I know for right now at least grupo gama and Latin Asia. Not sure for 2015 or 2016

 

@@rrstripes - we were going with Zuniga but I'm pricing out Latin Asia and well probably just go for whoever is cheaper

Hi Ladies,

 

Can anyone tell me about how much your wedding guests are having to pay for their rooms per night? I have a travel agent and it really seems to me that she may not be providing us with good pricing. I would think there would be at least a slight discount considering the number of rooms we are booking. Thanks for your help!

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
