I agree that weeks 2-3 at the hotel have booked up. Right around December all of the bookings happened in about 1 week. I know becaue I've been watching like crazy to make sure my guests could get their rooms- then sudeenly there were no more base level rooms. Originally we were told that those weeks in April would be 40% occupancy for the hotel (which is why we picked this date) and now my TA told me that the place is almost 100% booked. We have 16 booked/confirmed guests for our date on April 17th and we don't plan on our numbers going up by much more. We've seen the prices jump from $4,000 (direct flight and base level room) in October, to currently $6,400 (same flight but forced to upgrade room because the base level rooms are all booked).
I believe I have the most updated flower/gazebo/meal options/extra's lists for the hotel - I just got them a couple of days ago. Please DM me your email and I will forward the info to you if you are interested. I have to say that I am surprised at how expensive everything is. Not sure exactly why I am surprised, but I am.
We are not going with a DJ just because our group is so small (although we went back and forth about it), we plan to do an Ipod dock thing for the reception (bringing all from home so we do not have to rent it) and head to whatever entertainment the resort has that evening after the dinner. Again, because our group is really intimate, it just does not justify having an MC when we can talk normally and have every one hear us Also, dancing at the disco will satify our small group and save money.
That's all for now.
