I haven't been here in months but I am so happy to see that there is so much activity again! We are getting married on 11/17 of this year; only about five months away!
We are currently trying to decide if we are going to bring in our own DJ and where to do a cocktail hour. Anyone have recommendations? We are probably going to have 35-40 guests and are planning on doing the private reception at Chilis.
Also, we are in the midst of trying to decide what to do for our OOT bags. Are you guys doing one bag per room or one for each person? Also, does anyone have any recommendations for plastic cups? We were told it would be a good idea to include a really large plastic cup with our OOT bags as the ones used at the resort are smaller. We are probably going to do beer koozies as well!
Hi Jen! Welcome back - I remember seeing you on the boards a few months back! Your wedding is right around the corner! You must be so exited. Quick question - did you book a photographer? May I ask who? This is my next decision to make.
I, too and hoping to do a private reception at Chili's with the resort DJ. Although I am concerned with the mixed information I've read about what time your private reception can begin. 7 or 8:45? It would seem ridiculous to have a DJ for 2 hours...since they make you shut down music at 11 as a courtesy to other resort guests. Have you received any information in this at all?
My FI and I are doing OOT bags. 1 per couple or 1 per person if friends are sharing a room. As far as plastic cups - I bought acrylic tumblers at the Christmas Tree Shop this spring. This should be interesting transporting these - I may have to break seals and remove straws so nothing breaks.
Soo I think i'm going to have a lot more people than I orginally planned, I put down 20, but I can see that getting closer to 40. Do you think the resort would have any issue with this??
Emily - I am sure this will be fine. When you firm up details with them 2 months prior to your wedding date - that is when you have to supply a full list of your guests so they can make sure that 80% of them are booked at the resort. But Nix is right! Doesn't hurt to keep them in the loop. More information is always better than less!
Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.
