Did any one pay extra for more time with the videographer?? How much extra does that cost??
For the reception part did any one have theirs at the beach?? We are having our wedding May 20, 2011 @5PM but I'm sure its going to be ridiculously hot and I don't want my guests to feel miserable with a reception on the beach, so do you think El Patio would be the better choice?? And does that cost extra??
Also did anyone bring any decorations for the wedding, if so what did you use and what is easiest to transport??
And at the reception does the package come with a DJ or someone who will play some kind of music for my guest to dance for or does that cost extra as well??
Sorry to bombard everyone with all these questions but I feel like I don't know where to get the answers from, and since the date is getting closer, I'm getting really nervous since I feel like I have no idea about anything!!
Hey.....the resort photog take tons of pics and you look at them and pick the ones you want. I opted out of the video and got 25 more prints. The photog and video is a few before shots but basically the the ceremony.....with some shots after of bride and groom, family, friends etc. They stay a bit through the cocktail but that's it. I'm sure anything is negotiable for a price....or you could hire and outside vendor which you will need to pay either a day pass for or one night stay.....you have to work that out with the WC. We where very happy with the pics from the resort photog.
As far as the beach location......absolutely no shade, so if it's a hot day you will be baking!!! El Patio has no a/c so again if it's hot.......and generally there is a charge of $750. You can also consider the pool terrace which seemed to get shade earlier or the function room which had a/c, private patio and a great view. You will have plenty of options they will show you when you get down there.
I brought complete decor.....that is a total personal choice. If you use el patio or the italion restaurant.....I would not use additional decor.....those rooms are both really pretty.
As far as the sound/DJ. There is no dj included....you can hire the resort dj or an outside vendor. The resort does suppy sound for the ceremony w/ a man to run you music. You can rent the equipment for the reception and us an ipod......but the music makes any party so you may want to consider hiring someone, especially if you are having a crowd. I used DJ Mannia.....awesome, awesome, awesome.....enough said!!!!
Hope this helps!!! Feel free to ask away........
