Calling all Past and upcoming Brides to Sandos Playacar!!!! HHHEELP!!
Please Help! I am a new bride and my fiance and I HAVE to make a decision on a property today and we love Sandos but I'm worried about the wedding timeline and wanted to know how other people laid it out. We'd like to have our wedding at 4pm to make sure we can take photos before the sunsets. So we're planning to do the champagne toast at 430 and then photos but we're not sure what our guest will/can do? Does anybody know how long that champagne toast lasts? Like, can they stay after we go take our pics and hang out for - what - an horu? The thing is Dinner CAN NOT start until 6:30 pm at any othe restaurants so I sort of feel stupid as to what we should have our guest doing for two hours????? What did other people do? we were thinking of doing a cocktail hour but he prices are CRAZY ($44 a person for two hours plus a couple of snacks, can this be right?!). What's even weirder is that we are avoided Azul properties (which are also available on our dates) b/c of how they nickel and dime everything but somehow they have this AMAZING coctail hour for only $16 pp for two hours that includes snacks and for Sandos to be so much more money, it really doesn't make any sense. What am I missing? What did other people do?? I'm trying to call the coordinator today and get more info, but since we haven't locked them in as a choice, they may not help me so if ANYONE CAN PLEASE TELL ME ANYTHIIGN ABOUT THE CHAMPAGNE TOAST AND /OR COCKTAIL HOUR PRICING if they did it would SOOOOO appreciative. We have a crazy turn around (may 2013 wedding!) so any second counts. We have to lock in a venue!
Thank you Thank you!!
