And do they always charge extra for the Welcome dinner too??
That's about the same quote I got. DJ was $300/hour plus tax and the alternative was to rent a sound system which is $180/hour plus tax. Either way, seems kinda pricey but I don't think there's any other alternatives. Gaby said that the sound system is pretty much necessary for the ceremony if you want anyone to hear. I only have 30 people in my party so far and she recommended it for the ceremony.
As far as the welcome dinner / rehearsal dinner... I got the same response. Here's what she told me: We donâ€™t make reservations for any of our restaurants and it is first come first serve, in order for you to have your group all together in one area of the restaurant, we will need to make a reservation and a set menu for you, or if you prefer no reservations will be done for your group and you can arrive at the time you want, but we can not guarantee that you will all be seating together in the same area, since we will have other guests there.
All these extras are adding up!!
