We're getting married January 18 at 2pm and our reception is at 6pm...the problem I'm having is that there doesn't seem to be very many options for a "dance" between the supper and the disco opening up at 11pm. (the gazeebo is already booked up that night) So far the only options Chandlyn has given us are: renting one of the a la carte restaurants for $2500 Or renting the disco (before it opens) for $700 including dj but it would also cost us $15/person/hour for "open bar" - and we have just over 30 people coming along so renting the disco would cost us about $2000 for two hours. I also asked her if we could bring an IPOD and have our first dances in our semi -private area of our supper and she declined. Ashley 490 is getting married the same day at 4pm and has offered us to use the gazeebo that she has booked in between her ceremony and her dance - so while they're off doing pics, we could sneak in there and do our first dances - but I'm still waiting to hear back from Chandlyn whether she's ok with that or not.
Has anyone else been offered anything somewhat inexpensive to do between their supper and the disco or for their "dance"!? I feel very disappointed with this resort and the lack of options and frustrated with Chandlyn as we're spending a lot of money staying there for two weeks and bringing a large group down there and I feel like I'm not even close to getting "my dream wedding"
Has anyone left the resort to go to a restaurant for their wedding supper? (Is there any restaurants close by?)
If nothing else, I'm hoping she's ok with Ashley's offer to borrow the gazeebo for half an hour before our reception at 6pm and then between the supper and disco opening up we could just take drinks down to the beach and hang out there or by one of the bars around the resort - with 30+ people, i'm sure where ever we end up, we'll make it our own "party".
Any suggestions, advice etc would be really appreciated!!!!
Thank you so much!
