That could be either private or semi-private, it's impossible to tell if there are regular guests (none wedding guests) inside the restaurant. If you have your reception on the terrace, and don't pay the private event fee, your wedding guests will be the only ones on the terrace, but you will have other resort guests right next to you on the inside of the restaurant.

As Neen just said, you can only have a DJ if you pay the private fee.

Although I think somebody has said in the past (recently, like a few months ago) that they didn't end being charged the private event fee because their group was big enough that they took up the whole terrace and restaurant and so Landy didn't bother charging them. I think that's just a case of being lucky. You can't count on these things. But there are quite a few stories of brides getting different stuff for free when they were suppose to be charged.

Well then you wouldn't be allowed to use El Patio so you'd have to change to the ballroom, or do it on the beach / by the pool but without music (you could move to the disco for your party. You could probably get away with doing your first dance to music (like using Ipod dock or something) outside but you can't have a full out reception out there because it would be disruptive to the other guests.

EDIT: According to Neen's Q&A with Landy, you can have music until 10:30pm at the beach/pool.

Sunbride, I just saw your comment regarding not being able to have music if you have your reception by the pool? Wow, I'm glad you mentioned it, because I just assumed that all the outdoor private locations (beach, adult pool, activity pool) you could have music at, I didn't even bother asking lizette about it! smile35.gif

 

If you know the info could you clarify which outdoor locations you can have music at, aside from renting out el patio.....

 

Thank you soo much!

Sorry to worry you! I just remembered Neen asked Landy about this and Landy said to ignore the official policy and they will allow music outside until 10:30pm (even though the wedding guide said no music for outdoor events). Just make sure to confirm with one of the coordinators (it's always best to confirm everything with them and have it in writting and bring all emails with you just in case there are any last minute problems!)

Thank-you so much for posting the set menu! I've been really curious to know the menu if we decide to have the reception in the ballroom. This really helps!

I think I've read all the posts on this new thread, so I apologize in advance if I'm asking a question that's already been answered, but has anyone been able to confirm what the cost is to extend the ballroom reception past 10:30 pm? I'm flip flopping between wanting my reception at the SeaSide Grill (where the party will have to end by 10:30) or having it in the ballroom (to allow dancing/music/drinking into the wee hours).

Hello Ladies,

 

Well I have all my "Welcom Bag" goodies in and my table set up together - now that I have it all packed in a nice BIG suitcase I see that it weighs a TON smile43.gif

 

I saw that a few pages back one of the girls asked about shipping to Mexico - but I know with customs it can become an issue - I really don't want my stuff to not show up after all the research I have done to get it all organized!!!

 

So... has anyone traveled from Chicago or around Chicago and know about AA policy on WAY overweight baggage - and also - about the shipping.

 

Is it safe to ship? Has anyone done it and who did you use? How much did end up being for the weight that you shipped? I would like to get the ball rolling on this so that I wold ship it out early enough if possible to give it time to arrive.

 

Thanks everyone... cheer2.gif

the question about shipping has been asked before and most people did not recommend it.

 

Why not hand out your OOT bags at the airport or a couple days before leaving? This is what many brides do.

 

Also, do you have any people coming who won't use all their luggage allowance? Give them a few heavy things of yours.

 

I had 6 suitcases to bring to bring for us, and we were allowed 2 each, but luckily my parents only packed 1 each so I just gave them my extra 2 and didn't have to pay anything.

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
