We ended up paying for 50 extra pictures because we couldn't pick just 250! 

     

    Hi Savs (or anyone else who might know!),

    Do you know offhand what the charge is for extra pictures?  Do they charge per picture, or per 50 pictures?

    Thanks!

      Does anyone know what the charge is to purchase additional pictures if you can't narrow it down to the number that's included?  Can you purchase extra pictures in chunks of 50, or is it just an extra charge per picture?

       

      Also, with the top package, do you get two centerpieces included?  It says one for the dinner table, and one for the ceremonial table, but can you use the "ceremonial centerpiece" as a dinner centerpiece on one of the other tables later?

       

      Thanks!

          hi im unsure about the photos but id like to know that too. but i do know that you can use the ceremonial flowers as another centre piece as I asked this via email snd was told the flowers and decorations would be bought up for the reception. which is great :) x

            Unfortunately they charge by picture and it's super expensive!! I can't remember the price per picture but we ended up paying for 50 extra pictures and it was $495. And that was a "discount". Santiago was in the photo place helping us that day and we negotiated with him and got him down to that much. I think we started at around $700. He said the more you buy the bigger the discount they can give you. So, in my opinion, it's worth it to go with some of the higher packages so you get more pictures instead of having to buy them later on. Especially if you are doing the TTD! I think Anel ended up taking almost 600 pics of us so we had to cut it down quite a bit!

              The standard reception is 3 hours and the dinner is during that time. It is up to you and your guests how long it is.

                Yes, with the ultimate package you get a flower arrangement for the ceremony table and the head table at the reception. They will move the flower arrangement from the ceremony to the reception so just tell them you want it to be the same as the reception flowers. We didn't have a head table, we just had 5 regular tables so we only had to pay for 3 centerpieces which was nice. 

                 

                Oh and if anyone is wondering about our centerpieces and price - they were only $60.

                  Are you sure you can go inside? I asked Lorena the opposite (if we used desires lounge could guests also go outside on the terrace), and she said its normally closed off. Our date is April 6th and coming up fast!

                    I think we're going to have some unused credit in the "food" section, because we're planning on having an informal cocktail hour at the beach bar rather than a catered cocktail hour.  But we don't have enough extra people to use up all of the credit with dinner.  So now I'm looking at some of the upgrades in the food section.  Does anyone have a copy of the platinum menu that they could post?  

                     

                    And did anyone opt for a cake upgrade?  Just wondering about the cakes they charge for, vs the cakes that are included...
