Hey ladies!! Just be careful with your calculations...don't forget that there is a 26% tax (sales tax and service fee) that is in addition the $60-$70 per person, and also that the open bar fee (which is REQUIRED to have by the resort when you are having any sort of event - this is to be sure your guests won't just go to another bar to get the free drinks) is $10/pp plus the 26% tax. So sometimes it is right around the same price, if not more $$ to NOT do one of the packages. (The packages already include the taxes)
Also, the free package doesn't include any photos or video of the wedding, your hair/makeup, etc.
Just something to think about!!
If you have 40 people and don't do a wedding package and the dinner is $70/pp, you are paying $2800 + $728 tax = $3528. Then for the open bar @ $10/pp you are paying $400 + $104 tax, so your total is now $4032, plus the $500 for the restaurant is $4532. (With no extras)
To do the Love Wedding package its $2399, then $2016 total for the 20 people not included in the package for dinner & drinks, which = $4915. So you're only saving $383, but not getting hair/makeup, centerpieces, any pictures, or any video included.
Just make sure you get ALL prices from the WC and know exactly what you will be charged for, so you don't have any surprises.
There are caps on how many guests you can have in each place, and if you are over a certain number of guests you have to have a buffet. (I think all the numbers are on one of the wedding packets.)
