Pick and choose instead of selecting a Wedding Package?
Posted 16 December 2008 - 06:23 PM
I was just curious if any of the resorts lets you forego purchasing an entire wedding package and lets you mix/match some of their optional/additional choices that also have prices? For example, the Grand Palladium or Riu have a package for $1800 or so. Well I see the package includes a minister...which we dont need, and a photographer...which we dont need, and a cake....which we wont want since most places have better dessert w/ dinner...etc. So basically if we just want some decorations, a venue with seating, and a sound system...will any of the hotels accomodate that? I cant see paying several thousand dollars for some chairs (that they supply for $4 the price lists say), some flowers, and extra for dinner/drinks in an all-inclusive. We're covering costs ourselves and even buying several guests trips so we need to keep costs low to get everything in...just scared we might not be able to do it.
Has anyone been able to purchase the seating, sound-systems, decorations and reception dj/music apart from the whole default packages? Any info would be appreciated! We having a difficult time narrowing down a resort...do we do the Palladium, Dreams, Riu....oiy, there's so many more!

"The price quoted includes service for a maximum of 8 persons. Every extra person has a charge of 20 USD"
Well, here is the package that $1200 buys for 8 people:
Non denominational minister
Wedding area decorations (Decorated tables with clothes and covered chairs during the ceremony)
Bridal bouquet & Groom’s boutonniere
Flower arrangement for the wedding table
Red Carpeted walkway
Sparkling wine for guests at the wedding spot
Translation of the ceremony speech into English
Special d©cor in room
Honeymooner’s special weekly dinner
If I'm going to have 40 people attend thats an additional $600+ for chairs and sparkling wine. They say additional chairs are $4 in the optional expenses though. So I was wondering if resorts lets you purchase things individually as opposed to the package options...or is it just choose a package and add onto it with the extra options?
Oh...or with your option Moments, will a resort really let us get married there w/out using their products or services and use an outside WC?

Oh, we are getting married at the Moon Palace!! If you're interested in that, I would be sure to check it out some more - they do have strict restrictions on bringing in outside vendors and stuff, but they do and can provide everything you need!
