    no, i totally would contact her. there are about 3 weddings a day. if you are the last to put in your request, the stuff may already be booked. i would say email her sometime in advance. i don't know about this soon but sometime. also, don't worry if it takes her awhile to get back to you. give it about 2 weeks, if you don't hear anything by then, i would resend the email. oh, and dinner is usually at an assigned place, like for me it was the plantation but for other people when we were there it was Mammee bay. same menu, different location.
    My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

      I am wondering the same thing. I want to do dinner at Mamee Bay and then move to Seagrape. My wedding isn't until June 12 09 but I just want to know that everything is set.

        I would say book it as soon as you make a decision. I am not getting married there until 5/9/09 and I have already booked my poolside reception

          When you use the terms "beach reception" or "poolside reception" what exactly does that entail? I understand the logistics and what's included in Mammee Bay/Plantation but I'm confused on the beach reception.
          Do you mean having the BBQ menu, on the beach or the poolside?

            I was going to have the beach reception. I was under the impression that it meant you have your dinner at the Mammee Bay, then go to the Seagrape and you have to pay a certain amount ($10) per person. Plus you would have to pay for the entertainment (D.J. or band)
            I had not heard of the poolside reception, does anyone have more information on it?

              There is not too much info out there on the pool reception, but my TA walked me thru the picture of the pool and where everything would be set up. There are no pics of it at this point.

              Round tables of 8 with white on white linen. Standard food is the BBQ menu but that can be changed. $55 (2008/2009) price per person includes alcohol. DJ is a separate cost. Hope this helps.

              The same can be done on the beach.

                My wedding is in April 09, and I recently tried to book for my reception location and it was already booked....so that kind of gives you an idea of how far maybe you should book for the reception.Also, I tried to book thru Chandlyn, but got nowhere and got a response that she will talk to me 2 months before my wedding. I got my TA is call to book our dinner at Mammee and I tried for the Seagrape but it was already booked.....so now onto plan B for me!!! (Which i dont know what that is, I think see if a poolside reception can be set up WITHOUT having a dinner)
