Did you hire a bus company to transport your guests back to the Atlantis?

    Also...I was told that you can't have the wedding on the beach of the O&O unless you have 10 rooms booked for 3 nights.

    I'm so excited...they are going to send some more information to me via e-mail other than the two page basic document I found on the internet...I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I might be so lucky to have my wedding at just about my favorite place in the world!!!

      ashly87- Atlantis receptions can vary quite a bit. There is no site fee, however food & bev minimums are $150/pp (can be applied over 2 events) though it's pretty easy to get to $150. Other than that there is all the other normal reception stuff to factor in- decor, DJ etc which is not cheap.

        classadiva- yeah isn't it's beautiful isn't it! O&O catered menus are $150+pp just for food. If you are having a really small wedding you could just have a normal dinner at the O&O though. Having the reception off Atlantis grounds is actually a great idea too, one that I didn't even think off until I had signed w/ Atlantis. Check out Luciano's of Chicago, we're having a rehersal dinner there, and I have heard nothing but great things (would be a good alternative to Atlantis reception). Not sure if Atlantis would give you a group rate if you didn't hold a reception there, but it's worth a shot to ask!
        I think you should not have a problem wandering around the O&O grounds to take photo's during your time slot (2 hours) based on my discussions with Dinah. Winter Cloisters time slots are 11AM-1PM for non O&O guests, and 3-5PM for O&O guests UNLESS no one from O&O books that, in which case you can move up to the later slot:). In the summer months the time slots start 1 hour later.
        Buses-... We haven't hired a bus company, though I might look into it. We are expecting ~ 60 guest, so I figured we'll be filling up the shuttle and they can hopefully just drop the guests off right at the cloisters on the way there. Haven't quite figured out the way back though! Oh, and that is correct about having the ceremony on the beach. The only place the O&O lets a non guest have their ceremony is the cloisters. If you want to leave your email I can send you all the PDF's from Atlantis, O&O, Luciano's, etc. I have a ton of info.

          Thanks again for all of the good info. I sent you my e-mail adress via a private message. I would indeed really appreciate receiving the information you have a gathered. Thanks again.

            Actually the price for atlantis comes with two packages, they have a package for no more than 20 people at a price of 10,000. Then the other package is customized with a food and beverage minimum of around $150 but you are free to have any number of people you want. Cloisters is 3500 for the site fee. If you are looking for really great photographers, check out Brian and Brianna Elledge at dlweddings.com

                I'm wanting to have my Wedding Ceremony at the Cloisters and here is the info I have recieved.. O&O guests can use the Cloisters for a site fee of 3,500 for two hours / Non-guests site fee is 4,500 fr two hours and the latest time slot we can do is 1-3:00. Does anyone know of any work around for this time slot?  We are wanting to book our wedding over a year in advance and have it during the middle of the week. But would love a later time slot so that we can have everyone go straight to our reception dinner following the ceremony. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated!
