My fiance and I got engaged at this resort in March 2010! We have 45 people attending so far. I was thinking of paying the extra money for the reception...I'm not sure why we have to pay extra for alcohol at an all inclusive resort...does anyone have any information on this?

 

Also, if you pay extra for the chair covers & ties...are these used for both the ceremony and reception? I was also considering the gazebo for the reception...but I'm not sure how cool the evenings are in November??

 

Sorry...I have soooo many questions...help!!!

    That's a great price!  Especially since the Canadian dollar is doing well.  I'll have to check out the other favors there now, I'm curious :)

      Welcome LOKeefe!! Good luck with your planning

       

      It is so nice that you are going back to the resort to get married, since you got engaged there last year!!

We have 45 confirmed guests attending so I am leaning toward the private reception. Does anyone know if they have options to have the reception in a banquet room? Also, does anyone have any info on why we have to pay for the alcohol per guest when we are all paying for the all inclusive?? Oh...I have sooo many questions! :)

       

      The resort is beautiful...we actually got engaged in the wedding gazebo in March 2010!

       

      Hope to hear from you soon!!

        scahyer, what color was the menu that they made for you? was it printed on white paper? I saw some pics of them before but they were printed on yellow paper.

        I didn't know about this but they made a  menu with our name, the date and the actual menu. It's a great keepsake. We didn't pick colors for our wedding so all the linen was white. I personally loved it because it was simple. There was no flowers on the table, and for our group it was a good thing; My bouquet, many bottles of wine and many glasses! The table is a bit secluded or at least you get the feeling.

         

        As far as the chairs covers, we were ten so we didn't have to pay. You may have to pay after, but I'm not sure...

         

        Oh yeah, and you also get tacky honeymoon shirts lol.

          Hi Lmarie,

          I was about to make an attemp to describing it but realized that it much easier to simply upload a picture.
