    -At this point we are leaning towards Reflections in BR. We have an appointent tomorrow to look at it. I've been in a reception there but he has never been there. He's from  Mandeville, about an hour away.
    -As far as attendents, I will have 6 BM and 6 GM. 1 flower girl. No junior bride, groom, attendents. I want it to be on the smaller side.
    -Looking at about 150 people hopefully.
    -On the way to getting the honeymoon planned. Once we confirm the date with the venue, I will book our cruise. Going to Puerto Rico, can't wait. (Cha, didn't you go on this cruise? How was it?)

  • Welcome to the board! Reflections has GREAT FOOD (well the last time I was there in 06 the food was BOMB!)  Happy Planning! Can't wait to hear more about your day!
  • Somebody said "great food"?!?!?!?! I think thats your place Ke!!!! LOL! Good luck with your appointment tomorrow!!!!  You have a great party size!  Have you started getting the girls dresses and your dress together yet?

    Yea we went on a cruise that left out of San Juan, PR that sailed to St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, & St. Martin/St. Maarten.  We LOVED every minute of it and had the most fun in St. Lucia! I booked all of our excursions NOT through the cruise ship...we saved a ton of money and were able to do a whole lot more.  While it is costly, consider booking an Ocean Suite and if you can't do that definitely do the balcony. We truly enjoyed our Suite on the cruise. I have pics if you want to see how spacious it is as compared to the other ones. I personally feel that besides marrying the one God has chosen for you, the honeymoon is hand's down the most important...as compared to, ya know, for example, making sure you have favors galore for every one IMO LOL! 

    Any questions, just hit me up!

  • Cha, I would love to see the photos because I plan on doing my deposits in the next few weeks so the prices don't go up. I'm leaning toward the balcony but I did look at the oceanview suite.
    LOL at Missus. I told, I been here for a while, I was lurking while I waited for my ring. lol
    @ Casey, we looked at it today, my Fiance loves it and we booked it today. They had the best prices and the food is really good there.
