    @guillane87 yes, you have to pay extra for those fees if you are having a civil ceremony. Every resort charges that. I checked a ton befor we finalized our decision. As for changing options youbdefinitely can. Some things do have another charge, you just have to ask for what you want and make sure you get detailed pricing in writing before you head down there. I upgraded my bouquet and that was an extra fee. @qupid you can bring your own decor And they will set it up for you

      @JosieFiorda- I didn't know that. Just wanted to make sure this wasn't something that should have been included in the price. Don't know how I missed that. At least I found out now and not when I got there.

       

      Good to know on the changing of options/ upgrades. I was thinking once I figure out exactly what I want, I was going to send a picture of what I had in mind for flowers lets say, then that way they can see exactly what I want.

       

      Thanks for your help :)

          Toritrad- I have the same questions about tipping. We are spending a lot of money on the wedding options, but not sure we can afford a 20% tip on the total bill... We are going to do what we can, but thought we'd give a few hundred dollars to Ana for her help as well as something to the bartenders so our guests don't have to tip. (we are bringing our own officiant) Does anyone else want to share their thoughts on gratuities? I'd love to hear

            @toritrad. I got married last march at OCT...it was fabulous! I also thought the percentage would be crazy for tipping. Our wedding day bill was about $3700 and we topped it up to $4000.

              Hi friends,
              Regarding the menu options - I understand we are only allowed to pick one menu for the whole gropu. But does anyone know if we can subsittue a few people for the Vegetarian menu? I hope that there wouldn't there be an extra cost for our Vegetarian guests to have a non-meat meal?

              Thanks

              -Leah

                I've worked it out with them that i'm having the surf & turf menu, and my vegetarians can have the dill salmon instead of the weird Vegetarian pastry.... but they just need to know firm numbers 1 month before so i'm working on that. fortunately all my veg-heads eat fish!

                  I'm doing maracas as place holders on tables, they shake those to make you kiss!

                      I'll let you know where i end up getting them! I'm making a day trip to Cancun to Costco early in the week to get wine for the reception dinner (we're wine snobs and the resort wine is apparently crap) -- so i'm going to source 100 mini maracas somewhere in town
