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!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
