can anyone tell me if the italian buffet is really good for the dinner... we really wanted to have a private reception but it is too costly. are you really separated from other guests in the restaurant? we are hoping to have a dinner reception there followed by a private cocktail party on the beach..

I know you guys were talking about photography, have you had Maria email you any pictures done by the resort photographer? I wasn't all that impressed but then again I am all about my pictures! But I did find Octavio Montes who has amazing work with a quarter of the price of all the others plus I think you get the disk and printouts. Resort photographer just seemed pretty expensive to me also for what you get.

 

Hope this helps ladies and I look forward to chattin' with yall!

If you have less then 20 guests, you can have dinner to any a la carte restaurant. We had to choose the Italian buffet, to tell you the truth I wasn t crazy about it, the food was ok.. And for any additional guest, you will need to get them a day pass of 77$ US, email Maria, she can give you all the info

dreamyeyez- yes his website is octaviomontes.com. I do not remember if his prices are on his site so email me him if you need to. I can also try to find them in my emails if you need me to.

 

What are the details on a private cocktail reception?

hey..

they sound pretty lenient on having what you like in a private event on the beach. They will probably tell you its okay as long as you find a vendor that can do that for you ..then you would pay the extra fees. Email Maria at weddings.playacar@sandoshotels.com :)

If so, do you know the cost?

thanks Sash..

 

private cocktail reception is $10 per person/per hour.. for a standard open bar not included international or premium drinks. I can email you the info if you like..not sure how to post here :) 

 we are thinking of just having the semi-private dinner at the italian buffet followed by a dance open bar for 3 hours, cocktail party on the beach (renting a dancefloor, DJ, and lounge furniture). It saves us alot of money as opposed to the private dinner on the beach!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
