We are having our wedding diner at the Carribean restaurant because yes it was an extra on the terrasse... We choose instead to have the reception on the terrasse for 3 hours after diner which is an extra as well. Keep in mind that you can negociate the price that Ana will give you. The carribean restaurant has an open area so it seams to be nice
I am bringing my own decoration... bows for the chair and for diner table as well. There was way too many extras for everything... and I didnt ask, but I am not paying for Ana to set everything. If she doesnt want to do it for the fees we are all ready paying for the rest, I will do it with my bridesmaid... but I really think it shouldnt be a problem... I think she has an asistant as well... Ana seams to be a very nice and understandable person. I dont worry too much about her service since everybody said she was amazing!
I've been told that it is better to negociate as much before leaving since there your kind of on the spot couple days before the wedding...
I manage to lower most of her price... and she even found me a free option for the flower since I didnt really like the ones she was showing me at first.
It surely depend on what package you are choosing but even for inclusion there is always some extra if you want something different or more. I have a package from Transat so I am not sure what are the package offered by the hotel.
For the cake... to me it is a detail. I have no clue when and where. But dont forget that Ana will be there to make sure everything is going well so I wouldnt worried about that onless you wanted to do something different ....? I also think she will direct the guest and make sure everybody knows whats going on. Plus, you will meet with her the day after your arrival so she will explain to you everything and you can do a rehersal diner and tell your guest then... Apparently she will follow us every minute the wedding day and make sure everything is ok.
... Enjoy your planning, it seams a lot but it is so much fun to do! I will surely miss it after the wedding
