          Hello Neem29 everything was lovely, if you could share how much you paid for the reception and the Dj, the time of your wedding to give me an idea of what it will look like at my time, and the total amount spent

              Chairs w/satin covers…..….$450.00 (got them at $7.00 per chair- not normally this price)
              Day Pass for photog…………………$50.00 (no longer a breach of contract fee- you can bring in any outside photographer that you wish- Nikki confirmed this via e-mail as well)
              Steel Band……………………………$150.00 (for 1 hr)
              DJ…………………………………….$600.00( for 4 hrs) – he played music throughout the entire reception

                    Neema,
                    I love everything about your wedding!! You looked beautiful!! I will be doing the same wedding colors and I am happy to know that the Riu can provide different color fabrics for the huppa. And for only $250, it beats the fully decorated gazebo. You're the first person I saw that did that, I thought Riu didn't have different colors. I am so excited now!!!!

                    I am thinking of booking the Plantation, in your opinion do you think 2 hrs is enough time? I'm not doing the garter or bouquet toss, and I'm not having any speeches. With that being said, do you think I can squeeze in dinner and dancing in 2 hrs, I don't think we can afford booking the plantation for 4 hrs? Also, where did you get your table runners from? I've been looking everywhere online with no luck.

                      Thanks so much ! Well MoKe actually the white fabric draped on the huppah was furnished by the RIU. I bought the fuschia and orange fabric at at fabric store. My mother-in-law made all of my table runners for me. I just picked the fabric out and she did the rest. I think 2 hrs would be enough since the Plantation is a buffet(several people can serve themselves at once) and if you don't have all the speeches, garter toss, etc. I think that would be sufficient for dancing and dinner---unless your folks really love to just party! ;-)
