    Hey ladies,

     

       I just returned and will try and write a complete review this weekend! Everything at the resort was beautiful and everything I had dreamed of. Pilar and Daisy work so hard to make everything flawless, so try not to stress. Just a few things that people have asked about:

     

    paper lanterns I brought about 30 with no lights or hanging supplies and was not charges to set up and they looked gorgeous! (see pic)

     

     

    we had brought down our own chairs sashes (80) and they tied them and set up for no additional charge.

     

    The flowers at the pergola were also added at no charge & they used centerpieces from the reception as decor for the isle at the cermony.

     

    After all our guests left the resort drove my HUSBAND and I to our honeymoon resort in one of their private SUV's and it was perfectly safe.

     

    For dinner we glued colored flowers on the escort cards to determine the menu choices(turquoise for beef and purple for salmon, veggie was no sticker) and I also gave Pilar a list of each guest.

     

    If you ladies have any q's please let me know but I will do a full review this weekend...

      OH and welcome bags... They will charge to deliver so we just handed them out since we knew when the guests were landing etc. Also we did the dinner at the buffet as a welcome dinner which was great except since we had 75 guests we had tables in the same section but couldnt all be seated together.

        I am so happy that you had a great wedding...Congratulations.  One question...it looks as though there is uplighting in the Bamboo room.  Was the extra or was it included?  Thank you so much

          This was an extra charge.. i believe it was $250 but well worth it. I saw weddings throughout the week without it and it made a big a difference.

            What sized did you use for your lanterns?  I bought several different sizes, but some of them seem way too big and some way too small.

            Congratulations! I can't wait to read your review & see more pictures. A question about symbolic ceremonies, does anyone know how many days prior you are required to arrive? I know there is a requirement for legal ceremonies but I can't find any info on symbolic & pilar hasn't replied to me in over a month. :S

              I know for the legal ceremony's there is a requirement to be on the resort for 4 business days. For the symbolic ceremony/vow renewal there should be no requirements. That is what we are having too
