Del Chef's options were: snapper or chicken stuffed with spinach & mushrooms and Tex Mex options were: beef fajitas, beef filet, BBQ chicken. Kay, I know you were at this resort before...did you have any recommendations? Time is flying by ladies!!
Also, we just ordered our bands last week! Can't wait to see the photos from your stag & doe! Csho, the flower definitely looks purple in the photo but I'm glad it was white when you were outside, plus the flower will be away from your dress which can sometimes make the colour seem off. I really like the center of it..it is really pretty!! What seller did you use on etsy? I am in the process of deciding on a hair flower too!
First off, Congrats Kay!!!
Second: welcome dinner: extra cost?
Has anyone inquired about a cocktail hour after the ceremony before the dinner?
I e mailed Giselle to see what they had in terms of decorations already there, and it looks like we're going to be lugging down 8 tall glass vases for the ceremony isle deco and then transferring them as deco for the reception dinner @ one of the side bars that we have rented out privately. We booked the Disco from 9-11 on our day too which is awesome considering Giselle said they have 90 something weddings there this may. CHSO, we're getting married the 2nd, so if you're there the first and pop by at some point and see something that you can use on your big day a few days later let me know and I'll definitely let you have at it.
So far bringing down: favor boxes/favors/ dried lavender for the "rice toss", flat mirrors for some of the center pieces, 10 tall cylinder glass vases(bringing an extra two in case one or two break on the way down) 3 bunches of curly willow for "trees" [we're doing 3 different center pieces @ 3 tables each) and some tall purple/grey/cream decorative branches to put into the cylinders, our guest book which is actually two vinyl records in a frame with no glass so people can actually sign the record, and the bouquets[I've been going to Michael's every few days and using the 40% off coupon and buying the real touch flowers one at a time. Table runners in silver and purple, candles. That's our "bringing with us list so far, I'm sure it's going to grow significantly over the next couple of months.
We already have about 45 people RSVP'd confirmed coming and about 140 still outstanding which I'm sure will trickle in to bump us well over 80.
What are you ladies bringing with you?
