    Despite inconsistent reports on quality we decided to book the resort DJ. Our "reception" is going to be a bonfire for roughly an hour and a half before hitting the disco. Hiring an outside DJ for such a short amount of time would be very pricey when you factor in all the fees. We sent a handful of suggested songs and asked that he mix those with some "local flavour".

    Just wondering what you all are doing for music during the reception. Are you hiring an outside DJ? If so, who and how much? I am trying to buckle down and get all my vendors in line.

     

    Thanks!!

        When I was there a few weeks ago, the Beach resort had a beach party of their own on Thursday (of course Grand and Suites guests could attend too) and the Suites resort had their beach party on Saturday night (of course for Grand and Suite guests only) and I believe the Grand had their beach party on Sunday night. See the following pic for the activities lineup:

         



        Do we know if the Beach resort has their own 'beach party', or is it just one big 'beach party' for all 3 properties?  Maybe that is where the confusion is.  The Suites 'beach party' is currently happening Thursday nights.  Maybe the Beach resort's 'beach party' is another night.  Just a thought as to why you where told something different.  Not surprised there are inconsistent answers, but not sure what the right answer is... :)

          Sorry for the late replies, life has been hectic (of course).

          Thanks! 
           


          They originally quoted me $40 for a glass cylinder w/ orchids and river stones. I asked for a cheaper alternative, and they came back with a quote for $30 for something similar. I'm sure that if you pressed, they could come up with one for $20.  It helps if you're not picky. lol

          My quotes from Tai are significantly less than this.  In particular, my arch flower arrangement is $85.  I'm not being demanding though, maybe you asked for rare flowers or something elaborate?  $650 for flowers for the arch sounds off.
           

          I didn't know about the $150 set-up fee or whatever it is.  Not happy.

            We're considering having the steel pans band play Pachelbel Canon live for my walk down the isle or as we exit, since we'll have them there for the champagne and cake following the ceremony.  Has anyone done this, can it be done?

              Good Question! i am also having the steel pans for the ceremony, and the champagne etc.. following the ceremony.. I have emailed the wedding coordinator to inquire about what songs the steel pans normally play during the bride and wedding party walking down the aisle etc.. so i will let you know if they come back with anything helpful :)

                hi, susan!

                 

                was this beach party during the day or at night?  was it a bonfire??  i don't recall a beach party at night when i visited last year but hey, things might've changed plus the WC said the beach bbq was another day..maybe she's getting hung up on the 'naming' of it...beach party vs. beach bbq...

                 

                please help..i leave in under 2 weeks and i'm so utterly frustrated with the WC and her lack of good info i could just scream!

But your right more $$$ back in your pocket and they will be the ones missing out and wishing after the fact that they went to your fabulous wedding! Enjoy your wedding with all your friends and family! May it be the best time of your life!!!! :-)

                    haven't read the next cpl pages since your post yet but in case no one has answered your question yet.... I believe more women end up choosing the Beach for the wedding because it is cheaper to stay at the Beach property for the guests. If you have your wedding at the Suites and people stay at the Beach you or they will have to pay a for a day pass in order for them to come onto the Suites property. Hope that helps.

                      I hear ya!!!!! The WC alwys responds to me within a day or two.. however unless you know exactly which questions to ask for details on things, they are not forthcoming on all of the information! so thank goodness for this message board, or i would be 130% CLUELESS!!!!! as the only real good info i have gotten from the WC was in response to the questions i ask her. If they made a complete information booklet... that would be so helpful.. instead of a couple page document with a few tidbits of info.. 

                       

                      *sigh* oh well .. thank goodness we all share our info and can help inform eachother!! :)
