Okay two questions....

1) I am looking for advice on honeymoons. We would like to go to the caribbean somewhere and would like it to be all inclusive. So girls...any ideas? Where are you planning on going? Also...if it is not too personal, how much did it cost. 2) Cakes: I had planned on using Strawberry Hill Confection because she was so nice and the cake was good and afforable, not to mention she does regular and gluten free cakes!! Now my reception place is saying they need a 1 million dollar insurance policy. So anyone know a place that is in the same price range as S.H.C and carries such policy? Thanks!

    ohhhh...I guess I'm not familiar with the insurance policy thing!! YIKES!  We just signed Melissa with Strawberry Hill Confection!  Whats the insurance thing? Is this something I'm supposed to know?? lolWe are going to Cancun.  We didn't want to go there, but got a 6 star diamond AI (tata) resort and airfare for $1600 for the both of us!  granted we got a discount because of family ties, but that's what we're doing!

    Could you ask to see if you could take out the extra insurance instead of them? I know some of the venues we looked at required that we take out event insurance. We didn't end up needing to do this, so I'm not sure how it works, but it's something to look into. Good luck!

    Have you talked with Strawberry Hill Confections about the insurance thing? They might be willing to get that much insurance if they are losing clients, I know we will be looking to use them for ours but I don't know if our venue requires that much insurance...

    I asked my coordinator if there was a cake cutting fee or if they needed anything from the cake people and he told me that they had to show proof of a one million dollar insurance policy. Seems weird to me and I think he might be trying to get me to go trough buttercream. So i am looking into more.

    That the cake people needed to show a 1 million dollar policy?  Why would they need that?

    It has to do with health code reasons. The venue doesn't want to be liable for someone croaking from a piece of cake or any of the food, so they require the vendors themselves to have these types of insurance policies - CYA. Our venue didn't require this though!

    Uhhhh....yeah I've never heard of this insurance thing either!I would talk to Melissa about it. She's doing our cake and is AWESOME! Perhaps she would be willing to speak with your venue or may have some ideas on how to get around it. If not, she may be willing to refer you to other bakers who may qualify.As for the honeymoon, I am completely biased, as it is my motherland...but go to Puerto Rico!! Awesome food, decent shopping, wonderful culture, great resorts, beaches, outdoor activities...the rainforest (El Yunque) is my favorite place on the planet, and most resorts will have tours to there. Not to mention, the original pina colada...like nothing else you've ever tasted! You could also do a cruise!
