    The "Tropical Package" is in my view the best deal for the money. You get flowers and decorations for the ceremony, plus cake and sparkling wine for toasting after the ceremony. All the packages beyond that one provide benefits for the bride and groom and not for the guests, so I don't think they're worth the money.
    Do you mind sending this to my email address: tiff_mba@yahoo.com.
    Everything I have come across is still dated 2008. How did you get the 2010 package?

        Jerseykitten,

        You mentioned you are doing a vow renewal package too. Has Nina or Lori provided you with any 2010 pricing yet? How many guests do you expect to have? I can't seem to get any answers.

            when I booked my wedding I chose a package based on the 2009 rates. I sent an email a few weeks ago confirming my date when I heard about all the changes with the wedding coordinators and got an email back from Lori saying yes I was confirmed, but she didn't mention anything about me having to change the pricing. My stuff is at home and I'm at work but I don't think there's that much of a difference in the prices from last year - I think I booked the Silver Package though. I'll check when I get home.

            I'm thinking I'll have about 20-25 people. My responses aren't all in yet. What I did notice on the 2010 package is that it says "beach reception" so I'm wondering what that would look like as opposed to having the reception in the restaurants. I love the pictures from Blue Lagoon where everyone seems to have done it - has anyone had or seen a beach reception?

              I've only seen 2008 rates!!
              The Silver Love Package is what I am interested in too.
              Never heard about the "beach reception" option....that sounds like a nice setup too.

                I asked the previous WC about a beach reception. She said they do not offer any receptions on the beach!

                  Tiffany,

                  The reception at the Blue Lagoon DID include an open bar - but all the packages include that... no matter where you do it! (even at the specialty restaurants).

                  re: flowers.... you can see in our pics how the setup was:
                  Zuzelh,
                  Since I have lost all contact with Nina and Lori again can I ask you some more questions:

                  1) Did your reception at the Blue Lagoon include an open bar or is that an additional fee?

                  2) How were your tables deocorated, did every table include a flower centerpiece? Did you pay extra for that?

                  3) I provided my credit card information to Nina and I see they charged my cc but will I be getting an actual "contract" to sign and return?

                  Any help will be much appreciated.

                  Thanks
                  Tiffany

                    Also, I didn't see or hear of any beach receptions that were available.. Only the beach ceremony.

                      I was wrong - it says beach restaurant - not beach reception.

                      The 2008 and 2010 price for the Silver Love packages are the same - the only difference I can see is that the 2008 said Aisle Runner and Aisle Markers, and the 2010 only says Aisle runners. The 2008 package that I recieved didn't have the Extra Items Price List in it, so I'm happy to have that.
