    Nope, we had our friends sing/play guitar for our first dance, and then hooked up the iPod to the speakers for the rest of the dance with a playlist we made ahead of time (dinner playlist and dance playlist).  We ended up flying down a videographer and photographer, as both of those things were very important to us :)  I will post the photos as soon as I get them back!

      Hello ladies just joined this site. I am planning my wedding for November 2014. I know I have time but its never to early to start. I have been in touch with WC but bc my wedding is in nov its taking them longer to answer my questions. i am just truing to set my budget. 1. I am planing on 25 to 30 ppl so mint package is ideal for us, but I want my reception to be outside. Is it possible to have it moved. If so what is the additional cost? 2. If I end up getting strawberry package, ppl have been saying there is additional fee of $65, If so is the fee for any additional person after 15 people that package covers? 3. Also how hard is it to coordinate hair/ makeup and photographers on the same day as wedding? Did you ladies book the wedding date first than the vendors or found out when the photographer is available then got the date ? Thanks

        We had 65 people with the Strawberry Passion package, with a few added extras (light up dance floor, wrapped trees, bridesmaid flowers, etc), and ended up spending about $9,000 on the wedding package.

        Hello ladies just joined this site. My wedding is not till November 2014 but I am starting to work on budget and other things. I have been in touch with WC but bc my wedding not till nov they are not to fast with answers. 1. We are having 25 to 30 ppl max. I think mint packages works the best bc of the price and the amount of ppl. But I would love to have the wedding outside, is it possible to keep the package but move the wedding location.? If so what is the additional coast if any 2. If I end up getting strawberry package I know ppl said there is a fee$65, is this fee for any additional person after the 15 ppl that are included in the package? Thanks

            Hello ladies just joined this site. My wedding is not till November 2014 so the WC little slow with answering my questions, any help would be great still working on my budget. 1. We will most likely have 25 to 30 ppl max so mint package is great bc more ppl included, but we want to have the reception outside. I am wondering if its possible to move the reception but keep the mint package, if so what's the cost? 2. Also if I upgrade to strawberry package ppl said that there is a fee $65. Is this fee for any additional person about the 15 that are included in the package Thanks

              Does anybody know how many weeks before the wedding day you need to confirm the final head count for the reception? I sent out save the dates a couple of months ago, and mostly those who have booked already are those who will come, but I still need to send our formal invites. I was thinking of sending them end of Oct (wedding date is april 23) but I don't know when I should tell them to RSVP by.

               

              Thanks!!

                Hi iryna10,

                 

                If you want the reception outside you need to book the strawberry package. 

                And yes if you have more than 15 guests it's $66 per person. 

                 

                If you ask for the Mint Breeze, but reception outside, they charge you extra and it basically becomes the same price as the strawberry passion package. I wanted to do the same thing, so I just went with the strawberry Passion. We have 26 people booked so far, so we will pay $3500 for the package and then $726 for additional guests. 

                 

                Hope that helps!

                  I think Victoria told me to confirm 2-3 weeks before....remember, they are REALLY laid back down there. Last minute changes don't phase them! I sent invites out in September and asked that people RSVP by January, because that's when our travel agent needed the final payment. Once I had the final payment list from the travel agent, I sent that to the WC. She really didn't seem concerned about actual numbers until about 2 weeks before we arrived.

                    Thank you so much! You're right they're super chill, I heard back from Xhail my coordinator and she said casually "around one month before" LOL
