    I have been reading through your posts, and it looks like most of you had quite a few people.

    Did anyone use the Fantasy pkg, and only have the 20 people, (or less)? We are working on a fairly tight budget. The packages, do they include everything you will need for the wedding? Or are there alot of extra things you have to pay for?

    I hope that made sense : ) Thanks!

      I am using the Fantasy package but we are budgeting for 50 right now. So there was an additional 900 for the additional 30 ppl. As far as including everything in the package- i'm not really sure what you mean. It tells you what is included. For example we are planning a sit down dinner at $80pp i think or so- that is additional. I hope this helps. I understand the confusion but you will figure it out. Go to the PRC post here! in the search and you will see a ton of threads. good luck with it!

          I think if you like what's included in the Fantasy Package - and you have less than 20 people - it's the best value for dollar. I think the issue that most of us have had is that we wanted to changes things (i.e. the appetizers, etc) so there was an additional cost for every change. With a custom package you are paying for only what you want.

          In terms of Fantasy - the legal cermony alone is $1000 - so if you like the Fantasy appetizers and are having a legal ceremony it's probably the best value for dollar. The package though doesn't include dinner - that you have to price per person separately based on what's in the packages.

          Does that make sense? If you search the Paradisus thread I posted three spread sheets - each one is a breakdown of costs associated with each package for the specific things we wanted.

            Makes sense. Thank you!

            I think what I am confused about is the pay for dinner part, since it is all inclusive. I have read other resorts, when you pick your package they will make reservations at the restauraunt for you. And that would be included in your room rate? Is that an option her also? Or do you have to purchase the sit down dinner portion?

            Off to search your threads now...

              To be honest I am not sure. I think if you wanted to make a reservation in a section of the a la carte and order off the existing menu that would be included. Anything that deviates from that would be extra.

              If you don't want a private dinner, but are happy in a regular restaurant with other hotel guests, then you shouldn't have a problem. The only possible issue is the size of your party - if the resort is REALLY crowded, they may not give you your first choice of restaurant, or may ask you to limit your dinner choices to one appetizer, one soup and two entrees. We encountered this a bit. But, I think you'll find that it won't really be a problem.
