She replied and said the price was correct and there was no negotiating the price. for $60 pp you can have an a la carte meal or bbq on the beach, the bar is included in the price and so is decoration and lighting. The DJ service is an extra cost!

Thats why we have decided to leave it, plus we have under 20 guests anyway.

Just wondering what to do now?? Just had a look at the jellyfish restaurant, it looks nice.
If you decide to have the private dinner at one of the restaurants, you can have your after-party there as well, if you don't want to move locations down to the beach and have a private beach party. When you pay the $1000 for the restaurant, you get it for four hours. So That's enough time to do dinner, speeches, etc. then go into some dancing and music (you can rent the DJ for extra and he'll set up in the restaurant). I think we're going to time it so that our 4 hours runs out at 11 pm. If people want to continue partying at that point, we'll move to the disco.

There is also this option, if your having more then XX amount of people and it'd cost more then $1000 for the private beach reception, I'd suggest going with the private reception.

That's a great idea, we did the same.. but some times changed for our ceremony so the beach party was from 9-12 and then we also headed to the disco

Thanks!!!!!!!! :) You can come visit, there'd be plenty of room for you, the hubby and the baby!!!!!! :) I just want to see the baby lol!!

I agree, it's a little stressful leading up to the big day, especially when the FI is getting on your nerves and usually never helps lol. But it's all worth it in the end. Enjoy it, it goes so fast...I truly miss it!!

I didn't make any plans this evening, it's just me, my laptop and wedding review. I feel so pathetic that it's been 2 months yesterday since we've been married (happy Anniversary Court!!) and it's still not up.

Happy to hear that the surgery went well, minus the hiccup. AND Congrats on the new home!! Sounds like you are off to a great start! Hope landlord was easy on letting you out of your lease! :)

Thank you!!!

Yes seems like everything is falling into place!! especially with the surgery going well!!

 

Landlord was pretty nice... 4 options to get out of a lease (if anyone needs to know further down the line) 1-pay $100 and find my own tenant (who will still need to pass a credit check with the land lord and, if passes will sign their own lease) 2-pay $300 and he finds the tenant, however if he doesn't find one by the time we leave, we're stuck with the rent payments still. 3-Sublease (so if the new tenant doesn't pay our credit is on the line) 4- pay 3 months worth of rent and not worry about a thing (but we don't have 3 months of rent AND 3 months of mortgage) so option #1 it is...I've added post on craigslist and kijiji, and added a for rent sign on my balcony!! should do the trick lol!!

 

Hows everyone coming along on their wedding plans?

 

P.S I'm working on my review as we speak !

Hi girls,

For a private reception, do you have to book it before you go down? is there only one place for a private reception? I am scared if I dont book it now there wont be a place available.
