    How much did she quote you?
    When you ladies are talking about chairs, aren't the chairs included? Are you talking about the wedding or reception or both? Are you doing a wedding package or are you doing the free wedding and adding on what you want?

      The chairs that are included in the wedding packages are the ones covered in white - if you want something else then it will cost extra.
      I did the ultimate package and I'm planning to just upgrade certain things - like the linens and chairs and probably the flowers.

I think I'll choose him since his pics looked pretty good on his website. Also, does anyone know if we can mix and match the sit down dinner menu? We are having the Gold menu which has 3 options but I'd like to pick and choose between the 3 if we can. Thanks!

        I used Juan Navarro and he does such an awesome job! He is not the resort photographer though so you need to request him. The resort photographers are different. I heard good things about them too but just looking at the differences I liked Juan's creativity.

        Sorry I don't know about the sit down dinner options as I reserved the wine room and was able to order off the French restaurant menu.

          Is anyone bringing toasting flutes and cake knife/server?

          Also... we originally booked a DJ when we thought we were having close to 30 guests but right now we're at 11. What's the MINIMUM number would you say YES to the DJ?

            She quoted $10.00 per chair which I think is pretty high. I am going to try to use another vendor if they will allow it.

              I would say 25 minimum......just my opinion. You need to be able to justify the cost :)

                Thanks for the info! Do you happen to have pictures of the other chairs you are looking at?

                  We are bring out toasting flutes and cakes knife/server set. I got them at Hobby Lobby all wedding stuff is 50% of so that was awesome!!

                  As for the DJ. I say you should just bring a ipod. We went to guitar center bought a stereo system that plugs in your ipod mic and it is very loud. Small enough to carry on the plane. It was about 300 but then you get to keep it and it was cheaper then renting. We were going to get a bose but it was not able to put a mic in it. We are having 24 people and I opted out for the DJ because I just did not feel like enough people for the cost of a DJ.

                      We missed cocktail hour. Our photog was very thorough so I can't complain. Maybe you should change the ceremony to 5:30. We walked down to the pier and also took shots on the life guard tower. So it may have taken us longer than some.
