    Normally, they used a closed resturant for the cocktail hour and reception. Below is the schedule and hours of the resturants. I know that it is popular to have cocktails at X-lounge on the beach. I dont know much about having a reception on the beach or outdoors by the pool. But, many of the resturants have outdoor areas If you would like to be outside. I'm having my reception at Chez Isabelles, with cocktails on the outside veranda just off the resturant. Hope this helps!

          Has anyone else gotten the updated 2009 pricelist for additional services. I was really taken back by the increased cost for a DJ it went from $750-$1200

            Woah. $1,200 for a DJ? That's crazy. Looks like that's out for me. I am going to email Nayeli now. I wonder how much everything else went up.

              Jen,

              I can post a link to the update price list for you! I emailed her about it and she was like previously the DJ as inhouse and she got many complaints so they hired, and outside vender and thats the reason for the increase.

                Lauren,

                That makes sense then, I guess. It looks like it is the only thing that went up. Kenny found this DJ he LOVES that works at a lounge near us. Kenny was going to have him make 4-5 hours of mixed CDs for us. Initially we were just going to use the CDs for the catarmaran cruise but maybe we'll use it for the wedding reception too and just get the sound system for $500.00.

                Thanks for the price list!

                  My wedding is not until December so I am just taking my time with things. I just started designing my DIY boxed wedding invitations. That should take me a good part of the spring at the rate I'm going. LOL. How about you? How's your planning?

                    I think the DJ fee is expensive as well! I also think that they charge too much to rent the sound system. So we are purchasing a Bose system to take with us. We have found a few on craigslist for sale and it will save us money!
                    Are any of you doing the beach ceremony? I was a little dissapointed to find out that the floral arch is not included in the package. I don't feel as if I should have to pay $500 for that....

                      I have an I-motion ipod dock and I love it. The sound is wonderful so also look at thoses as well if your looking for good sound. I actully contacted DJ Movil to use as an outside vendor. I got his song list and he seems to have a nice amount of music, hes only $550 for 4 to 5hours. I do have to pay $100 for him as a guest pass but I think its worth it considering the other dj was $1200.
                      I've found that most places dont include the floral arch for the beach ceremony unfortunatly. Are you stuck on the floral arch because maybe after looking thru some of the other threads you can find something else that looks nice.
