Here is my latest response from Chandlyn. She also told me that the new prices are only for 2012...damn.
For the gazebo rental, I know we have the choice of with or without the DJ. If we choose to rent the gazebo without the DJ, how is the sound system at the gazebo?Please note that the sound system is only rented with the DJ. What should we expect, can we bring our own ipod and system will be set up for us or do we have to bring our own speakers and set everyone up by ourselves?You may also set up your own speaker
Do we need to make reservations at the spa for wedding day services and for other days we would like massages etc in advance? Do you have a price list for the spa and contact information? For information on spa and pricing please email them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
If I choose to get flowers from an outside vendor, do I get a discount on the wedding package or compensation in form of an additional service added to our package since I will not need the flowers provided in the package? The same with a photographer â€“ I will not need to use the resort photographer but I am paying for it in the package. Can I receive something different in the package for example hair styling for bride and bridesmaids or gazebo rental included with package price? Kindly note that should you opt for services outside the package the hotel will not be able to do a substitution or reduction in the package selected
We would like to book a snorkeling excursion for our wedding guests the Friday before the wedding instead of doing a traditional rehearsal dinner (July 22). Can you give us any suggestions for tours available from the resort? Since it will be a large group, I assume we will need to book the trip in advance.You may arrange this when you get here with your tour rep
I would like to confirm that we have the steel drum band reserved for our ceremony. Can I receive a list of songs that they can play? Or can I make requests to them ahead of time to make sure they can play the songs I would like? I believe you had originally quoted us $400 for one hour, is that still correct? This can be arranged at a cost of US400
Are chair covers included in the wedding package?Chair covers are included How much are sashes for chairs and what colors do you have to choose from? Sashes are US2.50 each If we have to pay for chair covers, does that cost cover both the ceremony and the dinner? They will be at both ceremony and reception If we bring sashes for the ceremony, can they be transferred to the chairs used for the dinner?Yes
Is it possible to have chairs or tables down at the gazebo during the dancing after dinner? I am worried about people wanting to sit during the after dinner reception.We offer a few chairs but not tables
We have several guests who are coming to GBP for their honeymoon. One couple is taking an early honeymoon and getting married in October, the other was married last July and are having a late honeymoon. Is it possible to get them the honeymoon package for their rooms? If it is not, how much does it cost to send something special to their room during their stay?For information and information please contact our Public Relations at email@example.com
How are the seating arrangements during dinner? I am trying to figure out if I should make escort cards or seating place cards for the tables but I wasnâ€™t sure what to expect for seating.We offer a head table and then other tables of 8-10 to accommodate the number of persons
We are making out of town bags to hand out to guests upon their arrival. Is it possible to have these bags waiting at the check in counter to be handed out or is it possible to have them delivered to their room? We can have them delivered to the room. If we have them delivered to their room, is there an additional charge for that?There is no additional charge
I was told there is a new restaurant and new construction at the resort. I was hoping you could tell me what was added/changed at the resort and if you could tell me about the new restaurant and its location (and if it is available for the wedding dinner?)The new block has a new buffet restaurant
I was searching online for a map of the resort layout but I was unable to find anything. Could you possibly send me a map of the resort so that I can send it out to our guests closer to the wedding date? I want to be able to point out rooms, restaurants, etc.I will obtain one and have it sent to you.
What happens if it rains on the day of our wedding? Where is the alternative in door location for ceremony and reception if that were to happen?For the ceremony we will relocate to the foyer and for the reception we will move the disco
Is there any way to ensure that random resort guests will not show up at our reception down at the gazebo? Is there a certain wristband our guests will need to wear or something to make sure that the bar that we set up is serving the people it is supposed to (ie- we donâ€™t want to pay for people that we donâ€™t know as Iâ€™m sure you can understand). This area is usually empty during this time so you will not have other guest passing by your reception.
How far in advance do you need our wedding documents for our marriage license? I just realized we are about 6.5 months away and Iâ€™m not sure when we are supposed to be sending you our information. We will need the documents at least 3 months prior to arrival at the resort.
Can we give a personalized ceremony to whoever is going to officiate our wedding in advance? Or do they have a specific ceremony they follow? We are in the process of putting a ceremony together and we hope that we can use it. You may provide us with your own script
Is it possible to get tiki torches set up around the gazebo during the reception after dinner, or luminaries or something like that to decorate it at night? This can be done at an additional cost
Ok last question! If we decide that we do not need the package that we have chosen, is it possible to change wedding packages? This is possible
