    Don't worry I am sure your wedding is going to be amazing! I am sure they have everything checked off & are on top of it. I hope you hear from them soon!

      Hi BeachBride! 

       

      Congrats on your engagment!  I guess they do 3 weddings a day!  Ours is at 4pm that day and we are workin gwith Lleny Gomez.  Who is your WC?  I just got my date confirmed about 2 weeks ago so I feel a little behind and overwhelmed!  Have you decided what you are doing for the reception yet?  Where you are having it and if you are getting a DJ?  There are so many details!

        For our reception we used starfish and sandollars to distinguish which guests were having fish vs beef. We did not create an actual seating arrangement but upon arriving to the event terrace there was a table with the place cards for each of the guests. We allowed the guests to choose where they sat which worked out great!

          Hi Everyone!

           

          We are having our reception starting at 7 pm. I believe it would then go to 11 pm right (we are at the event terrace). Does anyone know the cost if we wanted to extend it to midnight?

           

          Thanks!

            I think the reception is only 3 hours long - so it goes to 10p.  I extended mine to 11p and the charge is based pp, I believe it is $23 each?

              Actually, I just checked my emails and they are charging me $560 for the extra hour (and I have 35 guests).  Not sure how they calculated that cost?  I was told something different earlier from another coordinator, and this quote is actually cheaper than what they gave me.

               

              I extended mainly because I booked their DJ and the minimum time is 4 hours and then the reception is only 3, so I extended.

                Only to 10pm? What kind of party is that?!? Yikes I did not think it would be so expensive! I wonder if I could to do 11:30 what they would charge for 1 1/2 hours?

                  lliaPSU - Your wedding is coming very quickly!!! We will be there at the same time. Ours is on the 17th but we arrive on the 14th, one day after your wedding :)

                   

                  I have also read that the reception includes 3 hours so if it starts at 7pm the package would include up to 10pm. We are starting at 6:30pm and going to 9:30pm, then heading to the theater for a show and dancing at the disco afterwards.

                    Sharon99 -  Your Etsy purchases are super cute! I thought it would be fun to "leave behind" some fun wedding stuff that other EPM brides could use for free, but not sure how that would work - or with the turnover on the wedding coordinators, if it would translate and "pay forward" longer than a week or two (or even a couple of days).
