Can someone please relieve me from my confusion about food/private reception?!

 

I know that a semi-private reception comes with the wedding package for up to 40 people at spoons….How much is per person to do a private reception?  Do they charge for everyone or just over the 40 person limit for a private reception?  Do you have to pay a private reception fee per person plus the fee for the food?  Is alcohol included or do you have to pay for that separate as well if it is private?

 

After looking at the menu the prices are pretty pricey and if I have to pay more on top of that just to have a private reception I'm wondering how much that would actually add up to…it seems like it would be a lot!

The menus in the banquet kit are ALL private events... If you do a semi private it's a different selection and is $25/pp

Those all come I with an international bar as shown on the bottom of each page. The list of what's in that bar is in one of the last pages of the banquet kit. If you qualify for a free dinner at spoons. First 40 are free and then remaining are $25/pp for adults. If you opt for a private reception you have a large number of different options and price points.

this post on my EDR/EDCR thread outlines the private event options (the locations are for EDR/EDCR, but the banquet kit is the same for Azuls).

the semi-private event is usually just a dinner in the restaurant, no special decorations or entertainment. a private event is just your party, and you pay the fee per person for the food option you select for 4 hours. the bar is included, as are the staff (that's what the cost is for - the additional staff just for you). you can add additional hours, or

decorations and entertainment. the private events include white table linens and basic plates, glassware, etc. 

 

HTH!

Thanks so much ladies!!!  So I just want to make sure I have this correct….if I do a private event there isn't an additional charge on top of the food prices because the prices are already priced higher to include all the extras?

Your additional costs for private events would be decor and entertainment if you had any. But the service, basic tables set up, food and drink (4hrs) are included. But for the actual event, they are charged per person. Good rule of thumb is kids prices are 50% of the rate you see in the kit if they want a smaller portion of the dish.

right - there isn't an additional charge for most venues to host a private event. for example: 

 

40 guests for the BBQ buffet = 40 x $38pp = $1,520

 

with that price you get 4 hours of the open bar, the food, the staff (bartender/waiters), the tables & chairs and basic white linen (table cloths and napkins) set up. 

 

if you want to rent table runners, chair bows, have a DJ, have centerpieces, or any other decorations, that's all additional.

Hey everyone,

I just got my confirmation for my wedding from another coordinator, not from Bridgitte Castro. A new link for the private banquet kit does show the increased pricing. I plan on talking to her on Monday but have you other brides experienced this too? Is it definitely changed and nothing we can do about it if isn't listed on our detail sheet? I just received a detail sheet last night.

Please don't ask if the price has increased!!! The price on whatever information the provide at the time, is what many brides are trying to get. If you were sent the new pricing from your WC (and you didn't previously receive something cheaper quotes to you) then it's likely the new price. Unless you are actually quoted a price I don't think you can push to have it honoured.

Thanks!

Hi @kmk2016

My wedding coordinator has quoted me the cheaper private banquet kits but did not ever provide it on a detail sheet.

Thanks.
