Hi @kmk2016

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

Thanks.

Ahhhhhh then totally call her on it. Simply reply (including the original document) to her email and point out that the price quoted in the kit information she provided is not the price shown on your detail sheet and they should totally change it! If she just came up with the new price with no explanation, that's totally not cool! She doesn't realize that we are all wise to the pending increase! She would have needed to warn you with a new banquet kit I would think!

Originally I was going to just designate a public bar for my guests to hang out and have a few beverages while we got our pictures done- but with the free private events, we decided to have a hosted private cocktail reception for them to enjoy. We will stay for one drink and then head out for pictures while our guests stay and relax. It will allow us to have an hour or so before the reception.

@kmk2016 see the only options for "free" events I have is a welcome party, a makeup and hair package for me, or a photography credit. So I am going to to the welcome party but never had the option of a cocktail hour type thing. i guess i could just designate a public bar for that as well.

I would totally do that! Just put on your program- casual cocktails "zocalo terrace lounge 5-6pm (for example) so that you have the chance to get away for those important pictures!!

    Hi there!!  We are in the early stages of planning a June 2015 wedding.  I don't think we are going to have a dance after the reception as we have a small party and really, none of them, besides myself are "dancers". ;)  I've seen some brides write that they moved on to the Mojito lounge after dinner.  Thoughts?  Anyone else not having a dance?

    Are you doing a private dinner or using the free semi-private dinner? If you're doing a private dinner, 4 hours is a lot of time for just a meal. And since you are paying for the extra staff, it would be unfortunate not to use it. Perhaps you could plan some after dinner entertainment? If you're doing the semi-private dinner in Spoon, then heading to the Mojioto lounge is a great choice. Plus there are live musicians every night. So you might even be able to tip the band a few bucks and have them play a "first dance" tune if you choose. As well, there is usually a musician playing at the adult swim up bar from 6-9pm- very calming (saxophone, or guitar usually).

    Be sure to check out the Official thread- link below in my signature for more helpful tips.

    The cocktail parties which are a nice touch, especially if you have one free to use, are not necessary. They are NOT included if you host a private event. It is a separate billing item. Your guests will easily find somewhere for a drink to relax before dinner. I think it's a great idea to suggest one bar, that way once you're done your photos you might be able to join your guests for a drink. If you have it in your budget you could always add one if you choose.
    **Make sure to ask for your custom cocktail after the ceremony! It's included free!!! We had the staff serve all our guests mojiotos right after the ceremony. As soon as we walked back up the aisle, there were a few waiters with trays of drinks waiting for everyone. That's a classy touch which doesn't cost you a cent!

    @murmel the custom cocktail that you mentioned that is free after the ceremony, who do we ask about that? I asked my WC and she have a clue and told me there is a charge and to let her know what cocktail I want and she will quote me a price (she doesn't know ANYTHING! sadly, you know more than her) is this a list to chose this custom cocktail from or the hotel create one for us? how so I get it included after my ceremony? my ceremony is going to be on the beach at the pier

    Ok girls- need some opinions!!

    I am going to incorporate a mariachi band at my wedding but not sure where to "put it" to get the best wow/fun factor.

    Options are

    1) as soon as we kiss in our ceremony the mariachi band comes out and starts to play- and will be our recessional in essence as we lead our guests to the back of the sky deck and commence the cocktail reception taking place on the deck immediately following the ceremony. They would play for 45 minutes and then leave- and I would use iPod for remaining hour of the cocktail hour.

    2) at our reception. They could be our entrance to the reception introducing us... They would be walking out along the path and we would follow- as a surprise to our guests (reception at zavaz plaza). They could then play for the first 45 minutes of the reception on the dance floor and I would delay having the DJ start until 7pm

    3) have them close down our reception... As a bit of an "hora loca" and would be the last part of our reception.


    4) don't use them the day of the wedding at all- but use them at our welcome s'mores party the night of arrival. (Though not all of our guests may be there to attend this)


    Any and All feedback would be great guys!!!!

    @kmk2016 I'm having the mariachi band play during the cocktail reception right after the wedding ceremony and right before the dinner and dancing reception. My wedding coordinator suggested it since we will be paying for an hour of the band's time.
