    Natasha,

    Thanks for your reply. Do you know if you have to reserve the Garden Grill terrace? I am asking because the resort could have 2 to 3 weddings in the day and if each group has chosen the Garden Grill, could there be a conflict for using the terrace.Have they said how long you are able to use the terrace before being told to move to another location. Have you considered taking an Ipod docking station rather than renting the sound system equipment.

      hi girls, i got married there in may
      click on my wedding review link for lots of pics of the resort and our wedding.

      we had a private reception in Picsas restaurant next to the pool. dinner, waiters, drinks, and cake. then we hooked up our ipod to the sound system for dancing after. our dinner was at 6:30pm and it took until 9:30 pm to finish dinner, speeches, and the cake cutting. so there wasn't a lot of time for dancing. i'd definetly go the ipod route instead of paying extra for a dj.

      we just had whatever music they gave us to play during dinner, nobody was really paying attention to the music at that point anyways but if you're willing to put together a playlist for during dinner then you can ipod it. a microphone would be nice though, we just talked really loud but it was raining the whole time so i'm sure everyone could hear us but a mike would have helped.

      we didn't have a rent a sound system but maybe it varies depending on which restaurant you use? we paid $600 for our 24 person reception. our WC told us to ignore the extra per person charge. not sure if it's cuz we were only 24 people but you might want to clarify that with the WC as i balked at that charge when i first saw it too. sounds like the prices went up a little bit from last year

                Hey calchic!

                Just wondering how you hooked up your IPOD for the recption??
                Do you need a specific cord/attachment to do this?

                Thanks!

                  Hey Everyone,

                  Our wedding date is July 7 and our reception is at the Garden Grill. Good question about the cord and hook-up needed for the IPOD! I'd love to know as well!

                  Also, I was wondering about the music during the ceremony. My FI has been putting together a list of tunes and the music that we'd like to be played. How did the music go during your ceremony? Were there speakers? Could we just create a separate I POd list?

                  Thanks for the advice!
