      Amanda- what do you mean it was free? your waiter service or your entire reception?

        There was probably a total of 4 or 5 waiter-types, 2 bartenders, 1 dj and 1 wedding coordinator. They served the head table and the rest was buffet, but that was my choice. I was told that there would have been no extra charges if all of the tables were served. The wait staff poured everyone's champagne, wine, etc. and basically just helped out clearing tables, setting up for us, making a dance floor, turning down the lights, etc.

        I hope it works out for you and I saved you some money!

          before we got there, i was under the impression that dinner was usually at Mammee bay. but they told us when we met with them that dinner would be at the plantation. we had one long table, 25 guests. we served ourselves salad and bread but then dinner was from the steakhouse menu. we had our cake there. we were there about 2 hours with only about 2 waiters and a busboy or 2. no charge. but then, we moved to the seagrape for dancing and that was an extra fee. if my dinner would have been at mammee bay, it would have been no big deal. in fact, it almost would have been better because then you could just walk down the stairs to the seagrape, instead of walking all the way from one side of the resort to the other.

              I say skip the servers and just have it be buffet! $500 is a lot for something your guests are probably not going to think about one way or another.
