The best advice is to literally read this entire thread. There is so much information on here, that most of your questions have most likely already been answered.

 

To answer some of your questions, I am defintiely bringing all of my "goodies" with me. I plan on putting stuff in my checked luggage, carry-on and then if need be, giving items to some of my guests to bring down with them.

 

As for shipping items keep the following in mind:

  1. the hotel will not hold anything for you
  2. it is very hard to get everything cleared through customs especially if you are not there to personally pick it up

 

You can have whatever type of wedding you want, it all depends on your budget.

 

Good luck in your planning!

Kecia

I'm thinking that the decision may be based on the number of guests @ the resort.  I know May is almost completely sold out for rooms so it wouldn't likely be an option for me, even though I wasn't looking to do this.  This is the only reason I can figure that this would be an issue.

Breeze - a girl that just had her wedding a little while ago - told the WC that she had more guests than she really did and they still let her rent it out private once she got there and they realized she didn't have that many people. But if you ask them ahead of time to rent out a restaurant private with not enough people they will say no - - - my suggestion, do what Breeze did and tell a little white lie ;)

CONGRATULATIONS MRS SMITH!!!!

 

You looked beautiful!  Sorry about the privacy issue.  I completely understand.  I only have about 12 guests coming so i wont be able to have a private event either.  How did the Music Bar work out for you? Was that private or are other hotel guest loitering? What did you do during dinner? How was the mood? The tableware/china.. did you provide those or did the hotel?

And yes, the $800 privatizes the restaurant and pays for dinner but the $18 per person covers cake and champagne on top of that.

The other questions I have are how many people can fit at a table (I think the dimensions are 8' x 2'6" x 2'5") and how long is the aisle runner? Any help you have is greatly appreciated!!

 

 

Hey Betee,

 

On the terrace there are really neat awning type things and patio furniture. You could totally hang lanterns on those... lemme see if I can dig up a pic.

Yep, that is totally what I recommend. Although, that still may not mean you get the private reception. MY big plans were:

 

a) Invite random strangers (aka new friends!) to the wedding reception to make up the difference to get 40 ppl. The way I saw it is - if I had the wedding at home, all the 'plus ones' wouldve been strangers anyways. A few people that werent close friends wouldnt have mattered!

 

OR

 

B) If she said 'hell no'. I would have a Cocktail reception on the terrace (photo above) with hors doevres and drinks. That way it would be private to do our first dance and music and stuff after the dinner in the restaurant with all the other diners.

 

You just have to be flexible and ready for another option. I got lucky and she let me have mine private due to low occupancy that day.

CONGRATS MRS SMITH!!! You looked sooo gorgeous!!

 

That totally sucks that you couldnt have a private reception. Sounds like everything worked out ok though. So stupid and annoying that rule. And you had 2 extra guests (from Jamaica) show up? I know another bride who got married at the beach resort and had OVER 20 people show up (from jamaica) She was FREAKING OUT. She already had over 100 ppl so it was crazy. Seems to be a cultural thing. LOL

Yes, May is definetly busier than December (my wedding month) - but its still a day-to-day thing. Like my resort was completely booked for the dates of my wedding trip - some friends who wanted to take the same plane as us couldnt cause they were totally booked - up to the day of my wedding. Then it slowed down a bit on my wedding day (it was a friday)
