    Yeah, I don't know if the photographer does TTD either!! I want to find out too because I am interested. If anyone hears anything let me know. I will be checking on it too.

      KimmyG-We got a good deal through our travel agent. We didn't do the group discount because everyone is arriving and leaving on different days!

        Jaime, we are getting married at the same Riu two days later. :o) Best of luck to you on your special day! Maybe I'll see you around. ;o)

          We are getting married Feb 11. I have about 40 folks attending. Originally I intended on having our dinner reception at Chillis but was informed that I was not allowed to play any music. So I've requested to change the venue to the Brazilian resturant. I'm hoping they will let me have a private reception even though we don't have 50. I also plan on bringing my Ipod rather than hiring the dj. I'm still waiting for the resort to confirm if they will allow me access to the pa system and microphone. I'll keep you posted. If you have any tips - please let me know.

          Question -do you think its worthwhile to order appetizers during cocktail hour - our wedding ceremony is at 4p. Cocktails at 7-8:30p. Dinner - 8:45p. Appreciate your thoughts.

            Hey girls! I was just reading about Chillis and how they didnt let you play music, why? I will be having about 50-60 people coming and I was wanting to rent the place out is that possible? What would be the bestr place to have a reception? I want a ocean view and a private reception with a dance floor and of course music

              I think so! Don't go too overboard but it would be nice to have some appetizers. Did they send you a price list of what they offer? I'd like to see the options and can help you pick some out! :)

                When do you arrive?? We are there until the 7th then we leave for Argentina-for the honeymoon. If you are there on the 5th make sure you find me and hang out at the wedding if you want, get the full experience so you know if there is anything else you want to change or have for your day. Please if you are there early leave me a message and we can talk.

                  Ok so far what I have gotten from them is that if you want a private reception and you have less then 100 people then it costs $500 (also you need 60 minimum). Chilis private you need 80 or more, Boga Foto can accomodate 27-60 people semi-private or 60+ private with the extra $500 fee. But be aware that it is only for the second dinner sitting which is 8:45 at Boga Foto and 9:00 for Chilis. That does mean that you have 4+ hours between the wedding and reception dinner. I didn't know this until last week when we finally got into conversation about the plans. I'm still waiting to hear on confirmation of my dinner and restaurant. I ended up having 55 guests so we are right in between the counts- we are hoping for Boga Foto (brazilian) sorry if I spelt it wrong. I am excited that it is only a little over two weeks away.... so much to do.... I will keep everyone posted and hope to post pictures as well after the wedding.

                  Oh on the TTD the day after, the photographer is available if you want to pay for an extra day and extra pictures..

                  On the idea of appetizers, I think it is wrong to charge for food at an all inclusive resort when 90 - 98% of your guests are staying there for a week or so. So my bridsmaids said they are going to the buffett and getting food for everyone in the bar, we will see if that causes a stir or not... I just don't agree with having to wait for so long between the wedding and reception dinner. I did get an email with the appetizer list I will try to post it for you all.

                  I wish all of you the best with your wedding planning.

                    Jaime-that is great info in the post above. Please let me know what they do about bringing the buffet food to the bar-I don't want to pay extra for appetizers either when it is an all inclusive resort...it just doesn't make sense. Oh and that is great that the photographer can do a TTD session the day after. Do you have any idea how much that is going to cost? Please let me know if you can. Best Wishes-Desiree

                      We arrive the morning of the 4th and I would LOVE to sneak a peek of your wedding -- what girl doesn't love a wedding?! :o) What did you pick for your location? Are you SO EXCITED?! I can't think of anything else so you must be pretty much in the same mindset right now.
