    Is it me or should they have specific wedding menus? For instance does anyone know if you you do the sky wedding do you pick your hor dourves from the "white glove" menu? Also there is one menu where a dinner is $20 and then a comparable entree on a different menu that is almost $50.

    If someone could let me know their budget breakdowns that would be awesome. Also if the hotel was willing to negotiate on prices too...

    Thanks!!!
    Hello!

    As far as I know, the Sky Deck doesn't come with hor'derves... unless it's been so long since I chose that option, I don't even know what it comes with anymore, LOL!

    I didn't have too much trouble with the menu, I chose the Surf and Turf, steak and lobster with the trio ceviche appetizer with chocolate and raspberries dessert and it's $28 per person.

    My budget breakdown is so huge and scary, I think showing it to you would do more harm than good

    Good luck on your site visit! My experience with them is that negotiations are not done at all. I'm in sales too so I've tried to haggle them down like my dad always taught me and they don't budge.

      Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly. I think I just kind of panicked/worried that what if I travel there and hate it...then started reading some bad reviews and got freaked.

      I am using destinationweddings.com and she said you can have your cocktail hour up there after your reception. Is that what you are doing? Do you just select off a separate menu for cocktail hour?

          I'm using DW.com as well... I've made it a rule to only listen to what my Karisma offsite coordinator tells me. I don't ask my TA any details regarding the wedding.

          That's the first I've heard of that... last I heard, we couldn't have the cocktail reception up there. I can ask my coordinator... I've been planning my wedding now for almost 2 years so things could have changed or I'm just loosing my mind

          My cocktail reception will be on the beach on the wooden palapas. When I was given options of cocktail reception areas, Sky Deck wasn't listed but who knows it could be an option now.

          I'm doing the donkey cocktail hour which is no longer offered. It's 5 mexican hor'derves, open bar and Filemon the donkey which you can take pictures with, $10 per person.

              AmyF - I swear, we are having the same wedding - just 22 days apart and mine down the street from you!!! I chose the same meal but added a Cesear Salad - I really wanted a salad course b/c my FMIL does not eat fish & other ppl might not too so I thought it would be nice to have the salad. And someone said the cesear salad was invented in Mexico, so its a nice Mexican thing to do! I think it was $3 or $4 more per person. AND of course the donkey cocktail hour though I totally forget what we ordered from the apps menu.

                Ginger - Yes the meals can seem weird - I recommend not using the a la carte options and take a set menu. You can change things as you want and get the price quoted for the changes - its much cheaper that way. How many ppl are you inviting? That matters on price - even for the ceremony they only include 12 chairs - each additional is $9 freaking dollars!!!

                  $9 extra per chair! o please! hhahaha...Is it rude to tell my guest standing room only? (JK!!!!) Amy thanks for the tip about the menu though...I am def going to go that route.

                  Wait no more donkey? My fiance was really looking forward to that. And KittenHeart how is your experience with DW? I like my TA but I am beginning to worry that she doesn't know as much as she lets on and I worry that she may have ulterior motives for being so gung ho for AS.

                  Ye

                    By the way, that's $9 a chair for an uncovered chair. Covered is $12 each. And a bow is an extra $4 each.
