Hi Ladies, I wanted to add that they were very strict in enforcing the dress code at the restaurants for dinner. Long shorts and a collared shirt for the men at most restaurants. Portofino required men to wear long pants and collared shirts. There was no dress code at El Patio. Woment can wear anything short of a bikini (go figure?). Anyway, make sure to let your guest know to bring enough collared shirts to cover all night. One of our guest only brought two (some guys just one) and had to rewear them (dirty or not) to eat.

REBECCA!!!!!!!!!!! YEA! I have been waiting for your review- I am so glad to hear that everything turned out well- i can not wait to see the pictures. i am interested to see how the chair covers look in the pictures- now did you pay extra for specific chair covers or were these the ones included with the set-up fee? also how was the hoenymoon suite? when did you ask Juan to make a slideshow-is that something you have to tell him before? any do you get t o pick your own song? ahh- i am so excited that things turned out well for you. I was really pleased with Dreams-it seems like they do amazing jobs with weddings. congrats - now hurry and post some pics!!!!!

Hey Nicole,

Regarding the chairs, I'm sure if you specify, they will do either chair cover (the fitted or the flowing). If they'll give you the fitted ones for the reception, I don't see why you couldn't request those for the ceremony too? I just assumed. I do know they charge extra if you want the ties around the chairs.

 

Also, FYI, my cocktail hour was included in the price of the ceremony. I think it worked really well with the Trio playing and their being a bar set up while we took photos. It gave everyone something to do!

 

Regarding the slideshow that Juan does, yes, you have to request it. He just started charging for them because they are so time consuming. He charged me $100, but I think I was the first he started charging, so it may change.

 

The honeymoon suite was really big. It was a one bedroom with a full size refrigerator, huge walk in closet, living room, dining table, sofa & coffee table. Very comfortable!!!!

 

I put a quick Kodak photo gallery together of candid shots so you can see what I'm talking about on the chairs, size of the suite,etc. There is also a shot of my centerpieces, which came out more beautiful than I imagined!! I threw a picture of Juan in there too!

awww- thanks for the pics. i like the chair covers from the reception- which ones are those? and i LOVE all your lights and lanterns hung everywhere- did you bring those or rent them? also the centerpieces turned out beautifully. were the rose petals done through Maye also? i was thinking about trying to get extra petals from costco or cost club before the wedding in an attempt to save some money- did you ever see the quality of the flowers from either place? did you rent the hurricane vases? ok i am SO sorry about all the questions- please enjoy your holiday and i will grill you for full details later! haha! oh yeah- the honeymoon suite looks perfect! thanks again- you are awesome.

Nicole

I brought my own lanterns. Maye provided half and I bought the other half and I just left them all with Maye. Dreams charged me $180 for the wiring. I bought the lanterns online for like a couple bucks each.

 

The chairs at the reception were the chairs I wanted for the ceremony. I assumed I was getting those!

 

Maye provided the rose petals for me at $29 per dozen.

 

I e-mailed Maye a picture of some hurricane candles from Pier One that I liked. She found some for me and charged me $10.00 a piece for them. She had the candles made for me in the color that I wanted. They were around $10 a pieces too.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
