Hey Jody, you were right actually. The cheapest bar option is $5 for the first hour, and $3 for subsequent hours and the WC told me that the DJ was $190 per hour- so your math was correct. They recommended 3 hours, but I worked it out with my FI today and we decided to go for the two hours. It's important to us to have the first dance and speeches and to spend time with our guests which we can do in two hours.... plus according to CanadianKim and many others on here, it seems like it was definitely worth it!! It seems that there is another DJ (Bijan?) that other brides on here have used, but I think it'll be easiest to just go with the one they provide you at the resort even though pricier. For us, the extra $644 for two hour poolside cocktail party is totally worth it! And apparently they may just give you all the booze, but charge you the cheaper option!! So here's hoping they screw up.
And I am six weeks away, and I am pretty sure that you don't have to tell them right away if you want it or not. I'll let you know if they tell me it's too late! Though I am pretty sure I would go bridezilla on their asses. They want to make the money though, so they wouldn't say no to you adding more costs!
The judge fees are included in the package, but if you look at the price for the "fake" wedding, it is much cheaper, because they pad the "real" wedding price to include these. So really, you end up paying more. I'm doing it though-- I want it all done same day!
klc30- good to know about the hair! Now I'm freaking! I'm getting a trial done before I leave with my hairdresser and I am taking pics and giving to them to reproduce. Which shouldn't be too hard. I hope. GAH!!
I am getting a veil for sure!! Completes the dress- and cheezy floating sea-breeze is necessary for sure!!! Although I am taking it off post-haste after the ceremony (to show off the flower in my hair of course)
CDunn- The WC told me the disco opens at 11:30, but online it says midnight. No clue how close another bar would be-- although triple fisting and coming back to the party is always an option! It can't be too far!
Anyone going to be there between May 8th and May 22? My wedding day is Friday the 13th of May. Scary! Good thing is, if something goes wrong, there is copious amounts of tequila close by!!
