    I added the pricing for tiffany chairs under the "decorations" section on page 1. Can't wait did use them, you can see them in the pictures posted with her review.


    jmb0902 - I would suggest phoning the resort to try talking to them. I am surprised they can only offer you 12pm. If they only allow 2 weddings per day (although sometimes it's 3, maybe due to previous bookings before the new policy) I don't see why yours has to be at noon. Other brides here have gotten married with another wedding being only an hour before/after theirs. So I guess the problem has to do with the judge's availability rather than with the resort's availability. But if you call them you can make sure that in fact there is nothing else available. I know I requested 4pm, and they said I could have 5pm (which I thought was too late). In subsequent emails I found out that 4pm was available, the reason they said 5pm is because I had asked for "approx 4pm" and they thought 5pm was better so they suggested 5! Thank goodness that got cleared up. Anyways, keep trying. But I can see how the judge's availability would be very limited for the Saturday of thanksgiving weekend.

      Thank you SunBride for letting me know where to find the pricing for the chairs. I sometimes forget to go back to the beginning. Thanks again.

      One other question for everyone... when you had your rehearsal dinner did you do it as a private dinner in one of the restaurants? I am trying to help my FI figure out all the details for this. Do they still charge you around 55 dollars for each person, since it is technically a private event?
      Thanks

          Quick question for those of you having your reception on the beach. what are you doing for lighting? I am not sure if the hotel will set lights up as part of the package or is that an extra charge?

          Also, I know there is a $20 menu which i heard was only allowed in the ballroom. Has anyone been able to negotiate to have this menu at another location?

            Grea question about lighting on the Beach. I leave on Thursday for Dreams and I still have not gotten an answer to that one. Im not a fan of the tiki tourches that they offer for extra $$. I do have 4 of my own large candles I am bringing for the reception table to add some mood lighting. Anabel said I could have 1 large table for all of my 23 guests on the beach but who knows about the lighting. I am going to have a bonfire set up after the reception dinner while the music plays so I have know how the heck anyone is going to see?

              Hi ER,
              Thanks soo much for posting this sample of the resort photographers' work. SOme of those pictures are really great. One thing I'd done was search many of the photos within the forum, and have saved the picture that I really love. This way, I'm going to hand them a small stck of photos that I DEFINITELY want.. hopefully it helps!!

                The 20$ menu option is the regular restaurant menu. The 20$ you pay is just a service fee in recognition of the fact that serving a large group is more work.

                The reason there is a seperate menu for the ballroom is because the ballroom, not being a restaurant, doesn't have a regular menu.

                  2. does anyone have pictures of their reception on the beach?
                  3. Is there a dance floor, speakers and mic on the beach?

                    I can help with the 2nd and 3rd item!

                    Check page 2, there are pics of some beach set-ups. Also you could check the detailed bride list and look for which ones had their reception on the beach, and then look for their photos. I don't think we have a whole bunch of beach reception brides on here.

                    You would have to rent the dance floor, I forget the exact cost (check page 1) but it's pretty expensive, a few hundred dollars. Then you would have to rent the speaker and mic for 150$.

                      We had our reception on the beach, but that was after some circumstance made us move our pool side reception to the beach by the seaside grill. Ours was set up in a large circle surrounded by candle bags w/ tea lights in each. And then we added a bonfire to the middle since the candle bags didn't give off much light. They also have a few large spotlight type lights on the outside of SG that they can point out to where your reception is.
                      They can also set up the microphone & speaker out on the beach as well.
