    What 650 for the projector and screen! That is rediculus, you could probably rent it somewhere for way cheaper

      Renting would be way cheaper I think too but I thought I would be able to just 'rent' from the hotel for a reasonable price. Maybe they got confused and thought I wanted to BUY the projector and screen -

      I guess I'm trying to decide if I really need the slideshow or not (leaning towards not for that price). DH thinks I'm already going crazy on all this stuff anyway and he's not liking the 'extras' I'm planning either! :)

      Maybe if I need something else (firedancers etc) I'll talk to Maye or another wedding coordinator to arrange this for me.

        First and foremost - I totally agree that we Riu girls need to get the Riu section going...

        also - wowzers that is a big chunk of change for the projector...what about getting poster sized black and white pictures of you guys as kids and mounting them on stakes and placing them around the dance floor or something? Is that retarded?

        Side note - do you have to pay per person for dinner on the beach or just the set up fee?

          Thats a cute idea about the stakes. Another idea is the luminears (sp) with different photos of the 2 of you. Toby dont quote me but I think for the beach reception you pay a set up fee + dinner per person. Kim could Adrianna quoted you a price for the beach reception and the projector together? I would email her back to clarify

            I think we are going to do the mexican restaurant - seems more appropriate for our small group - 20 people- and I worry about walking around in cute shoes...lol...

              That is very expensive for the projector! I guess I will not be having that either! If you find anything more out, let us know! Thanks a lot

                Holy cow with the projector rental fee! Good lord! I hate to say this, but I think you could purchase a projector & bring it with you for less than that. Do you guys have a laptop already that could drive the presentation?

                  Hi girls,

                  Nope the $650 was for the projector and LCD only. I wish it also included the beach reception area! I was quoted $400 for the projector and $250 for the screen! oh my - not a money scam at all!

                  As for the beach reception - there is a fee for the reception location (beach) and then you pay per person for the meal. I think the beach location is $800 for the evening plus $35 per person for the meal. Man, this stuff really adds up. Apparently this also only includes beer and wine for the drinks which is fine with me because people can walk to the bar inside and get other drinks. But if you want an open bar it's $10/person/hour. I think this is all kind of ridiculous since its supposed to be an all inclusive anyway but I'm trying to get over that.

                  Oh and thank you girls for the luminaries and pictures around the dance floor suggestions - I really never would have thought of that! I like it! New crafty project to try!

                    Oh and yes we have a laptop to drive the presentation but I am so worried about how much stuff we have to take! Our luggage limit is only 44 lbs (20 kg) per person COMBINED!!!! I'm telling everyone to just pack swimsuits and flipflops and it shouldn't be an issue but I have plenty of other little things to bring like programs, fans, luminaries, pictures, guest books, favours, etc. Guess I'm relying on the resort for the centrepieces.

                    I guess the slideshow is out of the question now for sure....no room for a laptop!
