    FYI - I just heard from Lizet this evening and she told me that she would honour the 2007/08 wedding guide prices for us... YES!!! Since our wedding isn't until May 2009, I was a little worried that I'd really have to fight for it.

    To help anyone else out who might be in a similar situation, we received our confirmation number from Landy in February 2008, which was before the 2008/09 guide was released. It seems as though they're being really good and not trying to haggle or anything. Even still, I'm definitely going to print the email she wrote me and bring it with me!

      I am really battling with myself about whether or not to use the resort photographer or get my own. Does anybody know if you are reimbursed or given the difference you would pay for photography if you bring your own? I would hate to pay for a service I am not going to receive. How does this work?

        You wouldn't get a credit but they might exchange it for something else... maybe a videographer or more flowers or something, but they aren't going to reimburse anything.

          Sandra told me we could use the resort videographer for a longer period since we won't be using the resort photographer. They seem pretty flexible about exchanges but def no refunds!

          cant wait to get the Q&A answers from Landy! Thanks for gathering that for us, Neen!

                Hi everyone! Does anyone know the answer to this:

                I'm hoping to have my reception at the Seaside Grill (if the resort's capacity is less that 70% next May). In the most recent wedding guide, it states that "All the outside events are allowed... until 10:30 pm." It then goes on to state "Music and Dancing are only allowed for private events or at the Ballroom."

                What I'm wondering is, if I pay for my reception to be a private event at the Seaside Grill, do we have to stop the party (music/dancing/drinking) at 10:30 pm?

                If anyone has experience with trying to organize a similar reception, I'd love to hear from you. Thank-you!

                  amesharpe- i was thinking of doing the undertable lighting as well. what are you planning on using to do that? what are you bringing with you and how many/much?


                  SGBrown- Yes, unless in the ballroom its supposed to end at 10:30. There's always the disco afterwards... your party can make the party.

                    you can rent them, I think they're $35 per table. One of the other DT brides is doing it as well (can't remember who) and got the quote from Landy
