You may have already gotten the answer, but we are having a welcome dinner the night we arrive, and are handing them out then. Seems like a waste of $$, even though it isn't a super horrible cost...

Has anyone been provided with the table diameters for the rounds in the Bamboo Room? I am planning on a head table and then 4 or 5 round tables.  We are bringing our own table runners, and I am making them myself, so I need to know how much fabric to buy!

 

 

Thank you!

Kristen

Now a question about your invitations. Are any of you including the menu options in your invites? I'm confused as to how to word it on the invitation. I see there are 3 divine dinner options. Should I include all 3 options for my guests? Please let me know if this is correct.

 

For example:                      Menu options: _____Beef Fillet & Shrimp   

                                                                  _____Yellow tail tuna steak

                                                                  _____Salmon supreme & Ratatouille

 

 

 

We also have a wedding website and people can select their meal selection on there.  We haven't been too diligent in making sure people have done it, but will start to remind people as we get closer.  Our site has the ability to export all the RSVPs into a spreadsheet, so I will just print that out and bring to Pilar when we get there, I guess?

 

We did the beef, the mahi mahi, and a vegetarian option, which based on the menu from Pilar, looks like a veggie lasagne or pasta of some kind...

I love these!  I really think they will look great.  I do agree with you about wearing only those; they will tie in with your sash and shoes without being over the top.  You're going to look amazing. :)

 

Thanks so much :) It's nice to hear positive words from people I don't know sometimes, because I think my friends just tell me everything is fine, even if not haha!

Hi Gals!

I am an official Now Jade Dec 6, 2013 bride :)  So exciting to be a part of the club!  Thanks so much for all the great advice and help thus far - i have been reading the forum while deciding venues and starting to plan!  

I am actually going to Cancun for a 'girls trip' on Jan 18 and meeting with Pilar on the 19th to do a food tasting so if you have any pressing questions please let me know! I can also give you my run-down on the food if interested.  I also went down for a site visit in October and have photos and video of all the locations... 

The one thing I am missing at this point is the spreadsheet with all the options/costs... and we all know how quick she is to respond... :)  does anyone have that, and if so could you email it to me?? my email is beckybenfield@hotmail.com. thanks so much and happy planning!

HEY! I don't post on any of these but I couldn't resist when I saw your date....We are getting married at Jade Dec. 7th 2013! Congratulations! Lets hope for a beautiful weather weekend!!

Haha.  I know how that is. :)  It helps having someone who isn't biased in any way.

I am also including a note on the RSVPs to check out our website for more details on the food choices.  I encouraged people to go to our website when I sent out my save-the-dates (and many of them already have) just so they could get all the information anytime they wanted it, and I wanted them to have it early.  Under the Reception section, I put that once we had decided on a menu, we would post the details there so they knew ahead of time to check it before deciding on an entree.  I made sure they also knew that if they whatever entree they select, they would be getting the salad, soup and dessert with that as well, as no substitutions were going to be made.  You could always include an insert of the full menu choices if you wanted, something printed on vellum or something pretty, that way they can see the options.

 

Where do you see the chicken? Are you guys looking at Divine or Eternity? In the wedding guide I can't see any chicken option. confused.gif
