    OHMYGOD! Smores are an option? Why am I losing all of this wedding weight if I'm just going to gain it back on the day of?
    I love Las Caletas...

        We are staying at the Tropicana hotel. We have stayed there many times before and love it! Where are you guys staying? When do you fly down?

        I stayed at the Tropicana and loved it!!

        My cake was so pretty. It was exactly what I had in mind. The filling we asked for was pineapple, but we got some other red fruit. It was still tasty though.

          Kati - that is so neat! I can't wait to see pics of THAT!!!
          I love the mini brownie idea w/ the ice cream on the side. I thought about doing cake, but the only real reason I'd do it is for the pictures and we're going to get so many other great shots, I'm not too concerned. :)
          Yup, this is pretty much what I am thinking - we'd only do the cake for the pics so I'm not sure... we'll see if we have the extra cash when it comes down to it - otherwise we may just stick to the normal dessert menu.
          Brittany - we are not much into cake either but don't get me wrong I love dessert. So we are having individual desserts for everyone. They can choose either chocolate mousse or creme brulee. So delicious.... They are my favourites.

          It's all individual I guess, whether it's cake or tequila!! It's all yummy.
          Holy moly! Are creme brulees included in the regular dessert menu?? That's Martin's FAVORITE - he would be so happy :)

          What a freaking cool idea!!! Mmm... smooorrreeesssss

          Great ideas, ladies! Keep 'em coming please! Woohoo!

            Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone has a sample itinerary from the day of the wedding that I could steal some ideas from..You know, like when the guests board the boat etc? I'm filling in the areas on our Web site and am coming up blank on some of the details. The wedding isn't until Nov. 7 of 09 so we haven't really sat down with the details yet.

              I'm looking for a photographer. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have seen Elizabeth Lloyd's work but she is impossible to get ahold of. And has anyone heard of YSO photography?

                I'm sorry to hear that you've been having a hard time getting ahold of Elizabeth. I'm using her and she's been great at getting back to me so far. Have you been communicating via email??

                  It's actually Kelley that I'm working with to coordinate my wedding -- but be kind to Nicole nevertheless! Lol!

                  We're all staying at the Dreams Hotel. My FI and I fly down on Jan 15 and everyone else in our group leaves on Jan 16 on Sunwing. We're flying commercial down because we're going to stay for 10 days total. We leave the Dreams Hotel on Jan 22 and head to Casa de Mita for 3 nights.

                  That's so funny -- we're also having smores! I immediately went bonfire = smores and Kelley said it would be no problem to make that happen!

                    Were using Elizabeth Lloyd for our wedding also and the first time I sent an email it took about 2 weeks for her to respond. She has been very good at getting back to me since than. Sorry to hear you can't reach her! Maybe try again Good luck!

                      JaimeLynne - Hopefully the tequila cake works out I will take pics for sure.

                      And the creme brulee and mousse is not included in the price, Nicole is working on a price to have them done for me. But because we are not having a cake which is included she said she would take some money off the price of the individual desserts. I'll let you know.
