    We were able to reserve our date very easily and quickly, though we reserved well in advance (about 18 months actually haha). We've also got more than 35 people coming and are renting a private space (the pool deck). So far its looking like it will cost us an extra 60/person. I have requested that we don't have a cocktail hour and use the including cost for that towards extra meals. Right now we have the included package and will decide on upgrading once were closer to the wedding.

     

    Don't stress too much... i know its easy to get overwhelmed but they really seem to know what they are doing.. they just do it all last minute.

    I met with my TA last night and she is contacting the resort to nail down a date now.  It will be sometime in the beginning of June!  So excited!

     

    As we staryed talking about the room block and wedding packages, I came up with some questions I hadn't thought of before.

     

    Does anyone have ober 35 people, and have to rent a private space?  What is that cost like?  Is it really @ $75 more per person after the initial 20 people included in the packages?  Can you trade out any of the ammenities for extra people or anything?  Does anyone know if the beach set up (the huppa thing) comes with the package?

     

    I'm kinda concerned that the price looks good and all inclusive for the wedding package, but really it's going to cost me an arm and a leg.

     

    I actually don't even know what to budget out--but I'm trying to be cost conscious about the whole thing...

     

    What's been some of your experiences on the upgrades and the wedding packages? 

     

    Thanks for your help--little overwhelmed today!

     

    Katie

      Hi.  I kept communicating to Ana at the time to make sure she booked our date with them but also requested the email address and I emailed them myself.  They had my reservation and I then requested Anel for both shoots.  She was awesome in responding very quickly.

        Does anyone know if there's a charge for guests to get into the resort on the wedding day if they are staying somewhere else?

            Thanks Ssapper--

             

            So, you mean it's $60 per person for anyone over the 20 that are included?  That's not bad.  Did you also have to pay extra for the space (the pool deck)?

             

            I was thinking the same thing about the cocktail hour--maybe they can just takje it off and apply the cost elsewhere....

             

            I appreciate your help!

                  We are paying $48 per person I believe but we aren't doing the cocktail hour.  They gave us a credit for the cocktail hour.  I think we picked from the Ulitmate menu.

                    I forgot to add that we didn't book that early, we booked at the end of May for December.
