Oh ya, Nadia - have an amazing time! Hope you can track down Tiara for some face time!

Can you check for me if it's possible to hang paper lanterns on the patio of the SSG? I know there is the edge of the building to attach them to, but then what? The trees? lol

 

Have a great time, girl!

I have received an email from Tiara outlining the prices of some additional "extras" that I am considering having for my wedding. Here are her responses (in red) to my questions:

 

2) Is the ceremony translated to English or is it performed in English? A legal ceremony is performed in Spanish and translated in English.

3) Does it cost $350 USD for the Live Music Trio for 1 hour? yes.

 

4) How much is it to have speakers with iPod hook-up to use on the beach for my reception? that will cost you USD 250.00 up to 4 hours.

5) What time are we allowed to stay on the beach until for the reception? Until 11pm.

 

6) Does the price of the chairs include their use for both the ceremony and the reception? yes.

7) What is the price for a ceremony centerpiece? The price will depend on the type of flower, but will be from USD 70.00.

 

8 ) Can I use the ceremony centerpiece as the centerpiece for the Head Table at the reception? Yes.

9) Are there table linens provided for the reception? (or is there a cost, of much how?) This is provide it. We have blue, white, red, orange and dark green.

 

10) What is the cost to have tikki torches for the beach reception? USD 7.00 each one.

 

Additional extras that I would like to have are:

i) rose petals to make an isle out of (instead of having the red carpet). (Is this $15?) USD 15.00 is for a basket of pedals and this is not enough for what you want. This will cost you approximately USD 200.00

 

ii) wedding cake for 30 people (How much is this?) you have a wedding cake for 10 people included. You will need 2 extra pounds that will cost you USD 30.00 per pound.

 

iii) Bride's bouquet (included in Wedding in Paradise Package) the package includes you roses, lilies, callas lilies, bird of paradise, anthuriums and lisianthus.

iv) Groom's boutonniere (included in Wedding in Paradise Package)

v) Make-up application for bride ($45)

vi) Hair up-do for bride ($75)

vii) Judge Service ($300) Yes.

viii) Silver Dinner for Reception ($1134 for 30 people) Yes.

 

I hope that this helps to answer some of your questions that you may have.

KPEG and Amy, thanks for the well-wishes! I'm running around frantically trying to get stuff done for work (my boss is less than thrilled with my upcoming week off!) and also trying to pack, organize my FI and parents (who are also coming!).

I'm really excited to examine the details of this resort. I think that once I've actually seen the spaces that I want to use, I'll really be able to envision what can and cannot work.

hjack - what a fantastic response you received from Tiara! I'm hoping that she will be even more forthcoming in person! My FI speaks spanish so there should really be nothing that gets lost in translation!

Happy New Year to all!!

Have a safe and fun trip Nadia.
Can't wait to hear about all your findings.

HJack, thanks for sharing. BTW, some of us are renting the entire Seaside Grill instead of getting the silver package. It's $1000 outright and includes appetizer, dinner & dessert.
Also, she's letting us use our ipod with speakers for free.


ALSO -- ladies --- I was just at Long & McQuade in Canada and they rent portable speakers for $10 per month. A couple of those should be more than enough for all your guests. I think that's what I'm going to go with. Someone I know uses them and covers them in plastic bags when it's raining and she can still hear everything, so I figure if they're in plastic, they'll be no worries of sand getting in and I'll have great sound.

BY THE WAY --- I booked our airline tickets --- finally!

So --- 12 booked so far!

hjack - thanks so much for posting Tiara's responses!

 

SunandSand - Is the $1000 rental of SSG in writing anywhere or is this something you negotiated separately?

Also, is there a specific type of speaker I should ask for, or just the portable ones? (That's a great idea btw! How big are they?)

Hey Amy,
The $1000 is something Tiara has quoted all of us. Email and ask her and if she doesn't respond the same, I can send you my email. You just choose of the Seaside Grill menu and everyone has to eat the same thing, but since it's seafood and steak at the restaurant, I'm assuming it will be good.

.... speaking of which, Nadia, can you get us a copy of the current Seaside Grill menu? You are a god send!

The speaker is called the Traynor TVM10 speaker. the cord just attaches to your ipod. It's about 1 foot tall / deep so you could fit two in a suitcase, no problem!

Hi Ladies,
I am booked to be married May 7th! Getting super excited. So here is my question, if you book seaside grill can you have a D.J/band or is ipod and speaker our only option for music? Also are you booking the restaurant and going with the free wedding package?

BrBr,

I am getting married on May 3, so we will probably cross paths.

I believe you can get a dj for 250.00us. I have the free wedding package but really only free if there is less than 10 in your group. It will still cost 1000 for renting the seaside grill.

Have a great trip Nadia. I would be interested in a menu for the seaside grill also.
Thanks.

Liane

SunandSand & Liane - I will certainly return with the ENTIRE SSG menu and do some sampling to boot!

If things go as planned (I'm being ambitious) I'll try and send you ladies an update while I'm down there. I'm supposed to have internet access so in the evenings I will try and do some communicating-- so if you don't hear from me while I'm down there, it's not due to the many cocktails but rather a lack of good internet service!!shots.gif

I will be taking LOTS of pictures, measuring dimensions and no doubt boring my FI with possible table settings!! My latest centerpiece idea is to use 12" round or square Chinese paper lanterns (green and blue) surrounded by little tealites (green and blue from Ikea) and use 3 battery operated tealites (from Dollarama) inside of the lanterns.to create nice and safe glow. I'm really liking this idea because I can get the lanters for about $3.50 each in China town, they weigh next to nothing and they fold flat!

Well, it's off to bed for me...a busy week awaits me; and I'm sure it will be the same for the rest of you as well!!

Nadia, i will be doing something similar, i got the idea from the below picture and will be having all different shapes and sizes of Chinese paper lanterns in orange and hot pink and might throw in some small glass vases as well but not to many. We will not have too many ppl right now at 14 total (maybe go up to 20) so we will just have one long table.
