Did you have to pay to rent the space on the terrace ? I ran into the same problem with not having enough people to do a private dinner and reception... booo :( and they gave me the option to use the Blue Moon Bar for a fee plus a DJ fee. So you are having a private dinner but not reception ?Or do you mean semi-private dinner ?

Also, we plan to do the Steel Pans Band for ceremony/champagne. Did past brides provide them with specific songs or just let them wing it??? I see a lot of brides are doing the Beach party after dinner...has anyone had a cocktail hour (or two hours) following dinner? I trying to figure out what options would be for this...wanting to do open bar and DJ for an hour or two with speeches, 1st dance, etc before the Disco opens. I feel like the less I plan, the less expectations I will have, therefore, the less options for disappointment?!?!?! Thanks!

 

I went with Sharonnagassardesigns.com for my real touch flowers ... check them out !! They get back within a couple days, and are really easy to order from :) pm if you need any extra info !!

    When I was there in May you could get pretty much anything you wanted.  As for the reception, you pay for it (as with everything else) and it's not as much variety as they have at the regular bar.  The international bar menu for the reception had absolut, smirnoff and stoli on it, but I'm pretty sure they had grey goose at the regular bars.  No patron though that I saw. 

    ok thanks! I did see someone else post the liquors which is a big help! Can't complain too much when it's all inclusive :)

      Does anyone recommend any excursions and/or tour companies?

       

      Also, did anyone do rum favors and if so, how did you order them?

       

      I am getting there slowly and surely for my April wedding.  I have had luck getting in touch with the coordinator; they usually respond within a week or two however i am still waiting to hear back from tai flora with a quote.  Let me know if you guys have any questions and maybe they are ones i have already asked the coordinator.

      Hi Jaclyn, did Tai Flora give you any pricing for items to rent for a reception on the beach? Tent, dance floor, drapery, lighting.... Thanks!

        Well, we do have to pay $400 for the dinner, but she didn't say anything about paying for the terrace.  The way the WC explained it to me was we will have the restaurant for 1 1/2 hours and then they open it to the public.  So, I guess that's where the $400 comes into play.  I'm not sure how long we're able to use the terrace for or how long we'll be able to have the DJ there.  I'm guessing it's only until 10:30 or 11 though.

        Hey Colleen, 

         

        Do you think you could email me at sfox4214@yahoo.com ? I tried sending a PM but it would let me about the reception. I believe it might be because I'm a new user to the forum. Thanks :)

Especially tequila and vodka.....I have some picky guests!!!
