    Hmmm I thought I read bamboo arch with draperies is $200, but then I got the gazebo price list later with $400+, but those include some type of flowers. Does anyone know if Bamboo arch with draperies is same as simple gazebo on the beach?

     

    Bamboo arch with draperies

    $ 200

    What did are you guys thinking for the gazebo on the beach, if that's your option? Do they do a plain setup with cloth included in the package?

      That's what it is :) the bamboo with draperies it is $200 and adding flowers is $400 min. However the flowers could them be moved to be 2 additional centerpieces on our long table.

       

      Thanks!

        Ahhh gotcha! I need to learn to read better! lol
         

        That's good to know that the flowers can be moved to the reception. We might go with that option too, instead of simple wood/draperies. Not sure yet.

            Hi Danak71!

             

            We just picked them up in the "Brides" section of Michael's and bought the chalk marker to go with it, then someone at the resort wrote on them for us :)

                MsBliss

                Almost time for you!!! I am soooo excited for you!! :)

                 

                We paid the $500 and the $45 per person over 20 ppl... You shouldnt have to pay the extra $45 though if you only have 18 ppl in attendance.

                 

                We got home at midnight last night... exhausted isnt even the word for it!! So much fun though :)

                 

                Also make sure you double check your check when you leave... They DOUBLE charged me for everything and it was in pesos and so confusing, I refused to leave the resort until they converted everything to English and into USD... Thank God I am incredibly detail oriented or they would have gotten us for double our money. I almost had a heart attack!

                 

                Have safe travels!! and most importantly enjoy your soon to be husband and take in every moment!! CONGRATS!

                We are paying $500 to have them on the resort and we have only 18 people in our party. I'm hoping that the 2 remaining dinner spots that come with the package can go to Adrian and the assistant without any additonal cost.
