What does everyone think?

I was wondering the same thing. It seems everyone else is getting outside photogs (i just can't spend the extra dough). I hope the Resort photographer is good. I guess we'll have to wait and see...

OMG check out my ticker!!! smile29.gif

We are having our dinner and dance on the beach and I am wondering how dark it is there at night? We are just trying to figure out if we will need extra lighting. I know they offer lighting for under the tables, but it is a little pricey, so we are wondering if we can do without.

We are leaving on Sunday for Dreams, I am getting soo excited!! :)
I am also getting married on the beach and was wondering that as well. I talked to another bride on the forum who had her reception on the beach and she said that the DJ supplied most of the lighting which worked out wonderfully. I was going to skip the DJ, but after talking to her, I now think that it may be cheaper to have the DJ than to pay to rent the sound system and for extra lighting...just a thought.

I planned my wedding a little earlier for this exact reason. I do not think the lights under the table will help you out at all for pictures anyway. If you are concerned about photos then you should either get extra lighting OR like you said let the DJ provide some lighting. The sun does not set completely until after 7ish during the summer months so I am getting important photos and video in before that time.

I requested that she put 6 voltives on each table just to illuminate it at night.

Congratulations, you will have a wonderful time. We are leaving on April 30, wedding is on May 2nd. We are scheduled to have the ceremony at 7, but are thinking of asking to switch out the cocktail hour for maybe sound system for reception or maybe some other things. We are planning on the reception being at the terrace. I thought they provided lights, but we are now concerned they do not. Does anyone know?

I have a different question for you past brides.. How do they keep count of how many guests you have?? Do they really keep track of the kids attending your wedding even if they dont sit in a chair?? I am just curious to know how strict they really are....lol

Hey Ladies,

I did get some responses to the questiosn I sent Claudia (Via my TA) & after my TA had to keep e-mailing her..she finally responded.

I posted this on the Dj Doremixx v. Mannia thread, but I wanted to post it here also.

I said this to her:

I booked DJ Doremixx as my DJ..He;s not going to be arriving until around 6pm to set up...Will I still need a day pass for him.

She said:

He is not approved, we use DJ Mannia

 

So there goes that!! :-( It stinks because the price difference is so big. Even the sound system for 3 hours is more expensive then he is. So I wanted to let you know that if you want him you may have to fight for him a little. I think My TA may just to get her to come around, although, I'm not sure.

 

I also said that I wanted to extend the reception one hour. We will not need any servers or even a bar set up, just the services of my DJ

and she said:

With or with out servers it's $10 + all that tax crap that charge. WTF!

So needless to say, we will just take the party to the lobby..LOL

 

I think once you get down there, you'll be face to face and can fight for more things. I am tempted to book the DJ and fioght for him when I get there. If I lose then I'll lose like $150 bucks, but who says I'll lose?? LOL

 

I still have so much to do and I am losing my ambition. I was so gung ho in the begining, and now I am just plain lazy :-)

I just got reply from Cecilia too.

 

As I mentioned before, I got the Ultimate package, and only 16 people including ourselves will be there. I asked for the 4-person credit, and Cecilia said all she can do is to give us a room upgrade (just the 2 of us, not the guests). Do you think this is a fair trade?

 

Also, I confirmed with her that the sound system at Ceremony does come with a sound technician. Did anyone else use the sound guy before? Did anyone tip him?

bbpacco:

$324.00 would be the difference (about) if you think that is fair...depends on how many days you are going to be there......ask for the presidental suite

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
