Phil is the best, Im glad he was able to take your pictures! Have you decided where you are going to do your dinner and reception? I think we are doing dinner at the sea & see, and our party at the wet bar with DJ Mannia :)

I've booked Phil for my wedding in February! Can't wait to work with him! Does anyone know how the TTD sessions are done? Do they have to be done the same day as the wedding?

 

Is anyone else having their wedding between Feb 17 and 24th?

 

And one more question: how can I contact DJ Mannia?

Phill told me that the TTD session in done on another day after the wedding. You don't want to mess up your dress on the wedding day, so he does it another morning or evening that week. 

Just google DJ Mannia and they have a website, and just send him an email from there.

The answers that I know are :

You do qualify for a free wedding after you book 15 rooms for 7 days. It can be one person per room or more. You do have to pay for an open bar-not sure how much but I also think its crazy and will not be paying for that. You can bring your own alcohol and pay a $10 corkage fee but thats way cheaper then the open bar. If you have a private dinner and reception you have to pay for both. The steakhouse dinner is included in the wedding package that you would get for free for booking 15 rooms. Then you can choose to have a private party for 3 hours after dinner and thats much cheaper. Hope this helps a little bit :)

I was sent a price list from Sandra, but I am still confused :S haha. And the whole open bar?? isn't it all inclusive?? why the hell would we pay for open bar :S or is that for wait staff and what not?? Is there no bar on the beach? like if I was to have a buffet and reception down there?? I have no clue, and has anyone received the free wedding? I know I have 17 rooms booked so far so I believe I qualify? How does it work!?!?

Hello. I am new to this site. I'm helping my sister plan an April 2012 wedding and we are giving serious consideration to the ME.  Since there are sooo many posts on this thread I'm trying to work backwards and read them, but but of course to read them all is impossible.  My question is... Has anyone had their reception on the beach? My sister would like both ceremony and a dinner reception on the beach. Any insight and advice regarding a beach reception would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello MandyB

 

I just went through all your wedding photos.  Absolutely gorgeous...thank you for sharing.  Became engaged at the ME April 8th & we are now planning a wedding at the same resort, crossing our fingers the judge will be available the first week of May 2012.  How long did you book the Parrots Bar for your reception?  Just might have some more questions for you as time goes on...lol

 

Cheers!

As for the Parrot Bar, we had maybe 4 tables (and chairs) set up and then a table for the cake.  The Dj was set up over by the bar.  No food since it was a short reception and we had just had dinner.  For us, it was the perfect scenario.  It gave us time to do the first dances, cutting the cake, etc.    If you want, I will post my pictures below.  You can peruse through them and I am sure there are a few pictures of the reception.  Good luck and feel free to ask anymore questions!

SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP, ANYONE!!!!

 

I am getting married at the ME in 3 weeks and have MAJOR MAJOR concerns.... My WC quoted me a few months ago at $760 for a package for 40 people and is now telling me that it's $1000 for 40 people and $19 extra per person, so that is $1190 for the same pacakge that she quoted me at $760.

 

The reason I got a quote was to BUDGET for the wedding and now they are telling me it went up $430 in a matter of NO TIME. I want the price honored because THIS is what they sent me!!! It wasn't like I am getting married a year from now, it was 3 months before my date.

 

This is not the only thing too, it's A LOT OF STUFF... plus she gave me a provisional quote and she charged me 46% is taxes... PLEASE HELP.... If anyone is getting married within the next few days, weeks, or over the summer at ME or MC please send me your provisional quote... I am about to lose my mind.... Please e-mail me at nbrittell@Hotmail.com. I'm desperate and am about to have a breakdown--- how do I handle this and has anyone handled this before and gotten the original price you were quoted at--- I HAVE EMAILS (FYI)

 

Thanks for ANYONES HELP!!!

 

Natalie

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
