We used them for the trash the dress. They were decent...not real original. I know some other girls have had better experiences though.

It's so exciting to hear everyone's stories along with the reassurance factor! I feel like I'm being a little too laid back for now cause I'm bit of a control freak, it's very settling to read the good reviews. :)

We are getting married in April and we have started looking over the menu and planning extras etc... Can anyone recommend what hor d'eourves they selected from divine menu. What was good, what wasn't. We would prefer the buffet but we only have 40 guests coming. I also found it strange that the menu gives you 3 options but the one pick is the one every guest has to have for entree. It would be nice if the guests had a choice between two different entrees at least. Unless I'm understanding it wrong.

Also sone ideas on signature drinks would be great:)

We have two kids who will be 1 and 6 at the time of the wedding and my whole wedding party has kids ranging from 8 months to 6 yrs old. How was the pool area and beach areas for shade? Are their cabanas to use and how early do we need to get up to claim one. We're nervous about hearing reviews about the cups not being washed great and people getting Sick. Any advice for people that travelled with little kids to the resort?

 

We went with the divine package but I don't like any of the flowers on the list. Did they charge you a crazy amount to customize flowers or is it worth going outside the resort. We want to have a mexican decor type,wedding so we were thinking of getting a bunch of Pom flowers and banners and decor while we were down there to incorporate in. Anyone had suggestions?

We have 40 guests and are having our receptions at castaways. It's huge from what I have heard but divided into sections. We would like to keep all the tables in one section and then have dance floor and DJ in a different section. How many tables approx could fit In one of the sections? We need about 5 or 6 tables with 7 people approx.

 

Sorry about all the random all over the place questions. Life's too busy to plan this wedding so I a, really hoping that I can get this thing all figured out in a day and then worry about the rest once I am there.

I took my daughter, and she was 18 months at the time. We never had a problem with sun. If you want a spot on the pool, you should get there early or you won't get a chair. They have a little, shallow pool for the toddlers and babies, but it's fully in the sun all the time.

 

I had a small umbrella stroller, but my daughter refused to actually use it and she just walked everywhere. We took Her some sunblock a hat and sunglasses and she was fine the whole time.

 

Castaways will be fine for 40 people. You should be able to fit all the tables in one area and a dj and dance in a second areas. But even if not, it's only separated by small, short railings that should not be too noticeable when decorated.

 

I had my flowers somewhat customized because of my colors. It was only 50 extra dollars. If you send a picture of what you like, she'll give you a price quote. They do have small, covered areas at the family pool, but I think they have to be reserved through the concierge.

 

As far as Mexican style decorations. I'm not sure where you could find those. A cab ride from the resort to either cancun or playa del carmen is 90 USD. We packed all our own decorations. But I left them all there because I was too lazy to pack it all back up in my suitcase.

Is anyone willing to share their invoice privately?

 

My RSVPs are creeping towards 40 and I am beginning to stress out about the "nickel and diming" from the resort.  A recent invoice would give me an idea of what to expect when I arrive in May.  My email address is Carter.Watson2015@@gmail.com

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ladies

 

Ive heard back about the flowers. Peonies are available but are premium.  I also asked for a list of what they had, reply below.

 

The  flower included at the wedding packages are  lilies, roses,  gerber daysis, etc, tropical flowers

 

The flowers  not  included are a  premium flowers like   orchids, ranuculus, liciantus 

 

I'm not quite sure what is meant about tropical flowers!?  I emailed a picture of something simple I fancied but they didn't sound too keen to replicate it.  Maybe best just sticking the the pics in the brochure!

Thanks for getting this info!  I agree, I'm not flower-savvy enough to be able to figure out something around the flowers they listed, so I'll probably just stick with the pictures.

Question for symbolic ceremonies  - when coming back to get married in NY do we need anything signed down there? or just go to the city clerk and get liscense and get married.
