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.

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. smile78.gif

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 wink.gif

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 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 againsad.gif 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.
