    Seriously, whats the $400+ for? Setting up? If anything, it should be a flat rate not per 10 people!

      yeah its $400 per table of ten, i think it's for the staff and set up costs, as you have an exclusive area. that $400 only covers you for two hours too, after that it's another $60 per hour per table.

        It is expensive! I decided to just do it because I want my guests all together for a dinner afterward, but I do think it's ridiculous! I will probably have between 30 and 40 guests, which is $1600! for 2 hours! I'm not paying for more time though. We're just going to scope out a fun music/dance place when we first get there that we can all hang out at after dinner. Anyone have any recommendations?

          i know, i've been tooing and froing about it! i just can't make a decision. if money was no object i would definitely do the private event, but it is! i can't work out what to do.

          do you know if any of the restaurants on site are better for your wedding meal than others? maybe some are more secluded so feel more private than others?

            The restaurant in the SPA/Golf course area is secluded. Everytime that I have been there, it has been empty. Plus they have an awesome patio with a pool. You could have your reception there. Bring your iPod station and hang out. :) The only problem with that is that I dont know if the golf carts will be traveling back and forth from the course to the hotel.....? Maybe you can ask your WC?

            I also love Mo mo na hana! I believe that they have the BEST food! :) and it's right by the disco! :)

                what a brilliant name!! what cuisine is it? what kind of atmosphere?

                that's what im finding hard also, i've never been to the MP, so i have no idea about what is best! in an ideal world i would like a restaurant which has fabulous food, where our guests will be 'relatively' secluded from other diners, where we can have a great time.

                  The swing bar is surrounded by a "lounge area". I dont have pictures of that, but here is a picture of us sitting on the furniture. It's really nice and comfy. I bet if you tip the bar tender, he will turn off the music that they have playing. *ohh and we are obvioulsy a little tipsy here- LOL*

                  AND here is my favorite restaurant! :) THis is where we ate before he propsed! Everytime we eat here we always order one of everything on the sushi menu! LOL- but there is always a group of 6 or more.

                  ugh. I cant wait to go back!
