    I have the classic wedding package and was wondering if I upgraded to a couture cake do I have to pay only the difference or the full amount? Has anyone asked about this yet?

      I am curious about this too. Same with the flowers. I am not a rose girl and that's seems to be the only choice for their standard bouquets. I like one of their upgraded bouquets... it has peonies it in (my fave!) but it's $230!!! INSANE! Can you not pay the diff since you get these items in your package anyways or do you still have to pay the full amount for these upgrades?

        Is anyone else here doing a honeyfund? I was wondering because my mom still wants to have a "bridal shower" but not sure how that would work with a honeyfund. I think she may just have to be heartbroken about that one.
        I'm using Smart Honeymoon and I will probably ask for something diff for bridal shower like lingerie.

        I booked him directly because I wanted to ensure that I actually had him as the DJ. He told me I would not be charged the vendor fee because he is the in-house DJ for the Royal anway. If this is not the case, i'm charging it to him lol.

          looks like we're upgrading from a semi-private reception (at one of the resort restaurants) to a private reception on the beach. what do you ladies know about the setup, decorations or services provided? again, we're at the gran porto - we were initally told that the only dinner seatings (for the semi-private) were at 6pm and 9pm. our ceremony is at 6, so we had to do the 9pm. i'm really hoping to be able to get an earlier start on dinner now! thoughts?
          I think 9pm is really late. Are you doing apps in between or anything to hold them over?
          We are doing the beach reception same day you are. We got the luxury package which included the tables, chairs, standard centerpiece (candle with glass plate). They also will provide a dance floor but it is basically two pieces of plyboard. You can actually do a search for it, someone posted it on the forum. You provide the rest of the decor. LOL, you could use mine after I'm done! My reception is over at 8pm....ha!

            yep, it's super late! i'm thinking about having everyone meet for apps/snacks at one of the restaurants before the ceremony. there will be the option to have the champagne and cake after the ceremony. but i'm REALLY hoping that i'll be able to move the dinner up an hour or two now that i'm upgrading to the private reception.

            are you doing anything after your reception?

                I am pretty sure you can have your dinner start at any time as long as the location is available. Mine is at 730 pm for example. I was told the usual timeline is wedding, then 1/2 hour for pictures, then 1 hour for cocktail reception (if you are having one), then 3 hour reception. So my wedding is at 530pm, cocktails at 630, reception at 730pm. Hope this helps!

                    You have to pay the full amount. I already asked (bouquets too). That's half the reason we chose the "Free" wedding package and then we are just upgrading and paying for all the customized touches we want. Ends up being the same cost as the eternal romance package, plus the minister is free! It pays to stay 5 nights in a Master Suite.

                      Sorry to hear that- I am running into the same issues. If you want to change anything in your package, it seems like the included option is completely void and they want to charge you an arm and a leg for anything different. Doesnt make too much sense!!
