Yes, your guests staying at another resort can come for FREE if you are paying for a private reception. I believe it's for 8 hours. I love this when I found out. I have 4 people using a timeshare rather than staying with us.

I really wish prices were cheaper but are not and I offered to switch resorts and she said no that was fine. I think they have found somewhere else to stay.

 

Can people not staying at the resort come over for the day when you have a private reception. For how many hours and is there a fee?? She was going to do my hair and pictures.


Yes, like Tisha mentioned. You can pay for their 3 night stay, it will be cheaper than $800. Worth a shot. I'm not sure when you're wedding date is, but my photographer is supposed to be great.

Happy Wedding Day from me too! I can't wait unti you get back and share your experience with us, I'm getting anxious.

Tisha- I heard we are supposed to get 8-10 inches of snow late this afternoon.

I have to say about photogs staying at the resort......i was wanting my photog for more than just the wedding.  ie the catamaran/rehearsal dinner, day after shoot, etc.  anyway, if you have them come another day it is another $500 (or $800) depending on when you booked.  So, it cost me under $1000 dollars to have him stay there 3 days and he is basically "on call" the whole time!! it was going to be at least $1000 for hime to come at least 2 days, so it was actually cheaper for me!!  :)  def look into it.

 

also, i am bringing a hair and makeup person and it cost me $900 to have her stay there 3 nights and airfare.  she is doing anyones hair/make-up i want her to do b/c we aren't having a wedding party.  so, my mother, FMIL, future sister-in-laws, grandmothers, friends, etc.  I know for sure I would be spending more than that at the salon at the resort (b/c i would be paying for mothers, grandmothers, etc).  and this way we will all be in the honeymoon suite relaxing together!!  just some things to think about.....and ways to avoid these stupid fees!!  :)

So literally last saturday we fitted both of my dresses, my two bridesmaids, three dresses for my mom and a dress for my mother-in law.  She called me Monday morning saying everything was done!!! Wow so amazing and beautifully done.  If any one lives in columbus ohio area i know the BEST SEAMSTRESS!

 

Ok other things completed are my OOT bags and goodies, place cards and wine glass charms, my room cards ( i will pass these out at the welcome party and guest can swap room numbers so they know where to find each other and it encourages mingling), and menus.

 

So still working on excursion / important reminders letter and ceremony programs.  So needless to say improvement has been made and so happy everything is coming together in the nick of time! woot.gif


GO YOU!!! Sounds like you are ahead of the curve ball and ready to rock and roll!!! Good job!!!

Are you doing the catamaran cruise for your rehearsal dinner, I was thinking of doing that. Who did you go through and how much was it if you don't mind me asking?

Our quote has been the same for 3 adults in a room as 2 adults in a room.  Here is what our guests are quoted on our website for 3 days:

 

Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $651.92

Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $682.08

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $682.08

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $532.44

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 3 Adults - $532.44

What did you do for your wine charms Less is More?  And do you have a template for your room cards?  That's a cute idea.

I have 3 people in one room and it was cheaper for all three. It wasn't a huge difference but it defantely made a difference.
