  1. Hi Ladies, I was just married there in January so I thought i would try to answer some of your questions! DandM2013 we got the $700 package as well so we paid the 25% deposit on that by sending a copy of our credit card information. The chair covers and bows were an expense which we paid for when we got there. HOWEVER, one thing we did not know was that the chair covers and bows were from an outside vendor and had to be paid in cash! We had planned to just put the rest of our wedding expenses on a credit card when we were down there but had to come up with a couple hundred $$ cash to pay for this! - something good to know ahead of time! Kristo my bridesmaids and i used the spa to get our hair done. THey did an amazing job! Some of my friends brought pictures, I didn't. I just explained what i wanted and it was perfect! I believe the bridesmaids we $80 and mine was $95 which was pretty expensive. In 2011 the prices were only $65 so i wasn't impressed that they jumped. But at the time, i didn't even care, they did such a good job! And its EXTREMELY windy at the gazebo, and our hair-dos didn't even move!! They've got some magic hairspray!! Any other questions just let me know, I'm happy to help!

  4. To answer some questions... The walk down the aisle looks long but its not really, i had a song about 4min and it was plenty of time! Also, we brought a photographer and as long as they were a paying guest (which she was), there was no extra charge! And i WOULD NOT recommend paying extra for the open bar service. They absolutely don't care if you bring in your own bottles and we later found out that our guests were ordering liquor drinks from the waiters and they made them no problem, no charge!
  5. Hello Everyone, Just got back from our wedding, it was January 25th! All i can say is that it was amazing! Everything was completely taken care of when we got there, i did not have to do anything. We could not have asked for a better week. We had 78 guests with us and no one had any complaints! If you have any questions please feel free to ask me, i will be happy to help! Rachel

    For those of you who have already been married here, I contacted the floral place: Tai Flora and they sent me their catalogue and asked me to chose some that i liked and they would return a quote on the costs of the bouquets. Are we supposed to let them know ahead of time the flowers we want? Or did you just wait until you got there to chose your flowers?

    Hello everyone! I just confirmed my wedding date today! It's going to be January 25th, 2012! Im so excited! we are planning on renting the Dolce Vita Restaurant as we may have up to 100 people. Tris, I see that you said its about $2500 to rent it for the night? Where did you get this price? I was only told that it was included in the wedding package we choose + $15 per person / hr for the bar.
