    hey there,

     

    Has anyone NOT used the chair covers and sashes you have to pay for? Some resorts have nice white chairs you can use for the ceremony and I was planning on just brining my own decorations for the chairs to add some colour. 

     

    It's looking like the only chair options at the GBP are the ugly banquet chairs that will definitely need to be covered!

      The ugly banquest chairs are the only ones that they have, thus you basically have to use the chair covers. I know that there were some weddings however that did not use the sashes and just had the white chair covers. I would try and negotiate for this if you wanted to use your own decorations at a lower cost although they do a very good job with the what they have. Keep in mind though that if you want any of your decorations back to put someone in charge of collecting them after the ceremony. We were never offered any of our decorations back or were able to use them at the reception. It wasn't a big deal for us but I know for others having an at home reception they were very upset about not being able to reuse them.

        I was reading Sbelland's note, and i was just wondering about the music a little bit more. I think I know the answer, but we have hired the DJ, so this should mean that he'll have speakers for the music, correct? I would imagine so...but I might as well check.

         

        By the way, sbelland, they didn't move your chair sashes over to the reception? I have heard they have...I wonder why they wouldn't. I am definitely putting some one in charge of getting my decorations back! Its not much, I only have chair sashes anyway.

              I am also wondering about the DJ ... we are planning on buying a Bose ipod docking station to play our music just in case something happens. What all will the DJ do besides play music. Does he or she have a microphone to hype everyone up or if someone wants to talk? I don't really want to bring cds if I don't have to. I am hoping they have an ipod hookup and speakers. Thanks ladies!

                Also, the DJ is $250 and bartender $250 and gazebo free right? Plus $23 a person for whoever wants drinks correct? And semi private dinner free?

                    Can anyone recommend a certain "block" or building to stay in, I have heard the 23 is the newest, but it is also the farthest from everything.  Also, I have been trying to get personolized "do not disturb" door hangers from vista print,but i cant find then anywhere on their website. Anyone ever find them before?

                     

                    I just came home from our big family  Christmas dinner tonight, and everyone is counting down the days, and is soo excited, 2 weeks before we leave!!!!! OMG!!! I feel like there is too much to do before we leave. I know everyone says not to worry about anything before you go, but t feels like there is still alot to do!! Ahhhhh!!!!!

                     

                    Hope all of you ladies had an amazing Christmas! and will have a fantastic new years!!! :)

                      -We are trying to rent out the Piscis for a private dinner/dance.  Does anyone have experience with this & any advice?

                      -did anyone bring their own music to be played at the ceremony and dinner?  

                      -Does the DJ just play music or will he introduce the first dance, bridal party etc/...?

                       

                       

                      Thanks so much, any feedback would be appreciated!!!

                      We have rented out the pisces privately for our reception. I have heard that there can be alot of bugs there, but we are going to have a basket there for guests with mosquito spray and wipes just in case. When you book the picses that includes the dj for two hours, in the $1700 rental fee. We plan on bringing our own music for dinner and the reception on an ipod and a back up cd just in case.  Im not sure if the dj will introduce etc, I dont see why not. We have asked one of my unlces to MC, hopefully he agrees(hes a little nervous, lol, but we told him he only has to introduce us when we come in and our first dance pretty well). I also asked Chandlynn if they have a venue set up if it rains, and she said yes, there is a seperate venue booked our just in case.

                       

                      It looka like a beautiful venue, I cant wait!!! 13 days till we leave!!
