No one mentioned anything about that to me! Our reception started at about 7:30 and honestly I don't know if the cake was setting out there or not yet. I really don't remember seeing it. After we ate and our MOH & Best Man did their toasts then Mario told me it was time to cut the cake, so we did that and they started serving it. It worked out just fine!! I would say just do it! Even if it's not setting out the whole time - everyone still saw it. Granted it wasn't THAT hot for our wedding, when is your date?

My wedding is August 31st. I'm torn now on whether I should just switch back to tres leche or leave it as chocolate. I have heard that the tres leche is really really good:/ Thanks so much for your help.

Okay ladies, Iâ€m just shy of 3 months (Aug. 10)!!! Here is where I stand:

 

-          Mildly freaking out in general J

 

-          Gave our guests June 1 deadline for booking

 

-          Primarily corresponding with Kalena (Margarita did email me a few times but sheâ€s very non responsive, Kalena on the other hand has been awesome)

 

-          Went with pure collection, JSAV for DJ+MC, photo upgrade to deluxe, Tania for hair/makeup and Zuiga for some additional lighting

 

-          Ceremony is on the beach at 6 PM, reception near the pool from 6:30 – 10:30 PM

 

-          Have my dress, need to get it altered. Shoes, may go barefoot for the ceremony (what do you guys think?) and heels for the reception

 

-          I may do OOT bags + wedding favors in one. What do you think and what to include???

 

-          I heard a couple girls did signature cocktails. Thatâ€s a great idea if BP will do it for free.

 

-          What happens when youâ€re 3 months out? Who calls me next to finalize things?

 

-          Welcome dinner/rehearsal dinner, havenâ€t thought about this. Does your on-site person help to plan?

 

-          Oh yea, did I mention Iâ€m freaking out and feel as if Iâ€m forgetting things left/right?

Try not to freak out! you have lots of time still!

At 3 months out, your wedding planner should contact you (is that Kalena?) Mine was Margarita, she was amaizng!

Once you are two weeks out, you will be put in touch with your onsite wedding coordinator.

As for the signature drinks, they are doing it for me no problem (Free!)

 

Good luck with your planning! Try to enjoy it:)

Thanks girl! Margarita is also my WP but I never hear from her, its always Kalena. I did read that Margarita is or was on medical leave though. I just looked at your date, its right around the corner :)! Looking forward to hearing how everything went! 

 

What are you doing for a signature drink and when, reception? What are the details for your wedding (time, menu items, package, etc)?

What is tres leches? I've never even heard of it. It's a Mexican milk cake, right? I've heard good things about it too. But I decided to go with them marble cake because it's a mix of vanilla and chocolate, so it will appeal to everyone.

Yea, I think its milk cake Nicole. I requested a 2 tier cake; one tier chocolate, the other vanilla. Figured I'd keep it simple. Apparently there are other desserts too?
