    LOL...I don't mind. I had a million questions too! We 30 guests and so we had our dinner in the Tequila restaurant and then walked right outside to the poolside reception (DJ and drinks only). It was honestly perfect and cheaper than paying for the private meal. THe crazy thing was that we were the ONLY people in the Tequila restaurant. Our wedding was at 5, dinner at 6:30, and reception at 8:30. Of course everything ran a little late so the timing actually ended up being perfect. The DJ didn't have the best music choices and didn't say anything over the mic, so we just handed him our Ipod and made our own announcements on the microphone they had set up for us.

      So you had your dancing outside with a DJ rather then renting the disco? Did they charge you for that? I did not know you could do that hmmm...

      It's $150 an hour for the DJ alone. And then you will have to pay for drinks also... but I still think it's worth it!

        Yes, well I found out TWO weeks before the wedding that the disco was booked for my night already. Nice, huh? So you may want to confirm that that is even available for your date. You do have to pay extra for the private reception, but it's $150 an hour for the DJ and $5 per hour for drinks per person ($3 pp after the first hour). After being in the disco, I'm really glad we had it poolside. It's much prettier than the disco and seemed more personal and private.

          I completely agree. Plus it's just so awesome to dance underneath the stars! I loved it! AND it was MUCH cooler (as in temperature wise)!!!!

              I love your pictures!!!

              Question, it looks like you only had adults at your wedding, but do you know if they charge the $5 per hour for minors as well? We have quite a few children going with us.

              Thanks!

                Thank you! I would confirm with Jazmin but I don't see how they could justify that because the $5.00 is for alcoholic beverages only...I didn't have any children at mine to know for sure, though.
