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.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
