We chose the Royalty Package which includes dinner at one of the a la carte restaurants and then the private cocktail beach reception after.
I'm still trying to decide on the restaurant - does anyone have insight or feedback? Also, I know there are set menus with the restaurants - what happens if you choose a set menu that has meat and you have people that are vegetarians? Is it possible to have options for both vegetarians and non vegetarians?
Also, I've heard the DJ isnt that great - does the DJ bring his own speakers? Or is it just a dock that he uses? Are we better off bringing our own dock and music? We really enjoy our loud music so I'm wondering if the dock would be loud enough?
Lastly - does anyone have pictures of their private beach reception? I hvaent seen very many but I'd really like to.
Any other brides going to be around during that time?
I can provide a little bit of insight (I think) =)
The Fondue restaurant was OK at best. The Japanese Restaurant was very good and same with the Italian. If you let your wedding coordinator know that there are vegetarians, they usually do everything they can do accommodate.
We had the DJ for ours and we had a set playlist that I made and he played everything from start to finish and dead on with the flower toss/first dance/garter toss songs. So we actually had a really good experience with him.
We had all of our music on our iPhone (there is a wedding DJ app you can download and it was honestly a lifesaver!)
