BTW she speaks great english, nothing to worry about there. As far as prices we only discussed cocktail options not wedding packages but i do have the price list that they have for all the packages for the ceremonies etc, do you have that? if not let me know and i can email it to you. We have booked the DJ and poolside cocktails and dancing for 2 and a half hours. our ceremony is 4pm dinner is at 6-8 pm, cocktails poolside is 830 to 11 and then live music for an hour at the hacienda before the disco opens. The DJ is $150 an hour, he can play his own stuff or you can bring your own or do both, the cocktails you have2 options: regular is$5 per person for the 1st hr and $3 for the 2nd & 3rd hr and that includes beer, pina colada, margaritas & pop. the international is $17 per person and $12 for the2nd & 3rd hr and it basically includes everything. There is no minimum to be able to book the private poolside cocktail thing, we only have about 15 ppl and so it will only cost us about $ 550 pretty good deal, it includes lights, tables and chairs and linens, i am planning on doing the first dance and cake cutting here. The 2 options for the dinner that she told me was the Italian or the Seafood. The 2 ceremony locations she offered were the hammocks (she recommends this one) or the dock (for smaller groups up to 20 i think she said), she will email me the spa services list and restaurant menus in about a month also, she said wedding gown steaming is $20 to $25. hmm what else, i asked so many questions... bride, groom, parents, bridal party and witnesses may all take their wrist bands off for the day so it doesnt interfere with pictures. the dinner includes a dessert or in lieu of dessert they can make you cake instead she suggested the chocolate cake. Let me know if you have any more questions, i may know the answer. oh also she was very nice about doing a welcome dinner, she said she could book a section off at the riviera buffet so the whole group could dine together. its nerve racking not knowing a lot but i am sure everything will turn out great, they do like a million weddings a year LOL my only big concern is the spa specifically for hair, not hearing too many good things about them. I might source out someone from mexico to come and do it for us instead, i think i will ask claudia rodriguez for suggestions. Happy Planning!
That is great about the welcome dinner as we would really love to do one, the buffet is what we were thinking too.
If you would not mind emailing me the price list you got that would be great then FI and I can try to make some decisions before I call her. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks again!!!
