Recommended Posts

We are up to 25 total right now and looking to be just around 30 total. From what i heard they should be able to handle us no problem. I'm just happy to finally have everyone booked...

We have the Gold Excellence Package booked for the wedding. The dinner and cocktail party state that they are for 20 people and we have 25 booked to be there. How is this handled? Is there going to be extra fees for the 5 extra people? It'd be nice if they just let us slide by.

It would be nice, wouldn't it? But of course, they don't. If I remember correctly, it's about $40 a person for any over 20.

Last I was told was $45/head for any over 20 for the reception. Some resorts also tack on a 10% tax and 15% service fee per person, so really $45 a person, is $56.25/person. Not a huge difference but something to maybe be aware of. Anyone have any specific numbers on the reception dollars?

 

From what I understand, some reosrts also charge per head (over 20) for the cocktail hour and hor'dorves reception. I have no idea how much that is and have been trying to get those numbers as well.

 

If anyone has that info, please pass along!! Thanks ladies!!

Hmm.. sure wish they would have these numbers posted on the wedding page with the packages. Maybe I could've cut a few from our guest list. We're already throwing $2400 at the resort so of course they'll want another $250 or so for 5 more people. And that's just for the dinner? Crazy....

Trust me, we feel the same way. I mean dinner and drinks are supposed to be all-inclusive. I am fine with paying service and gratuity fees, but extra $$for dinner...come on.

 

We have around 50 probably coming, so I def. have to be more aware of all the costs. It starts adding up quickly.

 

I am frustrated they do not have the rates publicly posted and I can not seem to get a straight answer. Some of the other resorts will give you a list. The other resort we are looking into has given me all the specifics, it just seems a lot more expensive there, so I want to know all the #'s on both places before we make a decision.

Hi,

I was told that it will cost $45 for each person over the 20. This includes everything from cocktail hour to reception. The cake will be extra depending on how big you would like it. Does anyone know if you can request different menu items?

So...I'm seriously considering ERC - but haven't gotten a response from them on anything yet. As such - just a couple of quick questions - do you ladies know what the deposit is to reserve a room (if they don't require a deposit for the wedding, just your confirmation #, I'm assuming there is a deposit or full payment)?

Do they allow outside photogs?

What is the reception like for the Gold Package? Beach? Private? Semi-Private?

 

Thanks!!

I haven't heard anything about a down payment, we're going through a TA.

 

As for the photographer- outside photographers are allowed. If they aren't staying at the hotel you need to purchase them a day pass.

 

The reception is private it's held in a room off the lobby I believe. There a shot of it.

I believe they said you can have it on the beach, but you would be charged for setup and rentals.

We booked through a TA and all we've put down for the resort was a $150 per person deposit. I was told that was enough to hold our room and our wedding date. Veronica then sent us a confirmation # for what that's worth.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
