      Hello Ladies...all of your information has been very helpful.

      Jalong: I finally got an answer on having a private location for my reception. Management has agreed to let me have the Posideon on the Beach. I will have the DJ/dancing and dinner in there.
      I cannot find any clear pictures of the Posideon...do you think this is a good location?
      I have picked the Tropical package, so I am looking at an additional $30.00 per person and I have about 40 people attending.

      Do you think the Posideon will make a good location for 50 people?

      For your reception did they include the flowers on the wedding table for no extra charge?
      The florist is very expensive...so I think I will be bringing my own table decorations.

      During the actual wedding ceremony...did you walk down to music on a cd?
      I am going with the DJ for the reception ...but I am trying to picture the music for the walk down the aisle.

      Anyone with any suggestions?

        Also, I think I am leaning more towards the gazebo and my wedding is at sunset.
        How was the Gazebo location overall?

          Panda,
          There will be plenty of room at the Poisedon. It overlooks sunset beach/cove in a secluded environment. It is a covered outdoor dining area with a nice view, although the view will also include trees.
          When we did a site visit the gazebo wasn't there, however the area and view is absolutely stunning! In fact, we considered it for a moment even though we always said we would wed on the beach!

          ANYONE,
          I know children under 12 are free when it comes to the extra $pp fee. Does anyone know if they require these children to have a separate "children's menu" or can they order the entrees we request? Of course, I just thought about it today as I am mailing the invites.

          By the way, if you choose the Caribbean package with different entree choices, they require a count a month ahead of time!

          Did we ever find out if the microphone and speakers were included?

            Are there any updates on the casino? I read that there was going to be one. Does anyone know when it will be open?

              Hi girls!!! Thanks for keeping this thread going!!! You all have been so helpful!!!
              I am also wondering about the casino
              I emailed Jascynthia my dinner menu choices last night.
              I told her my photographer is a friend and will be a guest at the wedding so I'm keeing my fingers crossed thats not a problem!!!
              I also asked her about centerpieces and flower options, so I'll let you all know what she tells me.
              Does anyone know when do we send our documentation to her her ie. passport, ids, birth cert. Also I never sent a deposit or signed a contract has anyone else

              Thanks girls!!!

                I haven't heard anything about the casino, but I did get in touch with Jascynthia!

                She told me that their standard reception setup includes white linens and tealight candles in glass holders, but that I could look at setups and pricing from Tai Flora or Floral Fantasies and use them if I want to (I was surprised!). She said that they use Tai Flora.

                She said that the photographer is not an issue if she's a guest and travels down with you (you just can't use another local photographer).

                I signed a contract and gave my $300 deposit back in September.... I was told that the deposit was needed to officially hold your day and time.

                Oh, and you're supposed to send in the necessary documentation 30 days before the wedding, but she said if you want to send it sooner, that's better.

                  Jascynthia told me that you can rent mic and speakers for $200 and if you need to rent a projector, it's $60.

                    IMDELS,

                    I would get the required info and deposit to her ASAP. This is indeed the only way you are confirmed as I was told. Also, I would not send by standard mail even with delivery confirmation and tracking. I sent mine back in JULY and they have yet to receive it! FAX if you can.

                    Jascynthia was told the casino should open by the end of the month, although I have heard the same thing about the past several months

                    As for the children under 12, they choose from the same menu options. She said they would accommodate any children that this would not be feasible.

                      I remember somebody mentioning bringing their own DJ (one of the guests). Did you hear anything about that option? Wondering about the mic & speakers setup if he were to bring his own equipment or the cost of renting their usual DJ setup....
