If I remember correctly it was about $8-10 dollars.

We brought our own music on a CD.  We had 4 songs for before the wedding, I think a total of 4 songs for the wedding ceremony (one for maid of honor, one for me to walk down, one for sand ceremony and one for leaving gazebo) and then another 4 songs for after the ceremony during the champagne.  I also took 2 cds just incase one didnt work.

Any brides that got married at the resort already and used the Dolce Vita did they make it look nice for the supper? Also if couples who brought their own music  for the ceremony roughly how many songs did you use? All this little stuff is getting me so nervous but i am so so excited.

        I am getting married here October 29, 2013.

        I am hearing that the resort photographer isn't very good. but when you look on their website arrecifestudios, the pictures look pretty great to me. Does anyone have any feedback? And if there are any brides out there that have brought their own photographer, how did that work? did the resort charge you the vendor fee of $800?  Thanks :)

          I am new to this site. My fiance and I are getting married January 21, 2014 at GBP Runaway Bay. We are just starting this whole process and have so many questions.

           

          My biggest question right now is how early is too early to get our guests to book with our agent. We want them to get the best price and I am worried that if they sign on now, the price will be lower if they just wait a few more months. I have said this to my travel agent but I feel like she just wants to get as much as she can and won't tell us what the lowest price we could expect to pay per person is. Can anyone tell me what their guests paid for a 7 day stay in January? I have been told 1400-1800 per person and I have no idea if this is reasonable, cheap or expensive. I noticed some of you were married this past January, if any of you can reply with the rates you and your guests paid and what month you locked in those prices, I would really appreciate that! Thanks :)

          We were there January.10-17 and from edmonton and toronto it was 1720(that is with all taxes included)

              Just wondering about travel insurance. Do we have to get that through our travel agent or can we shop around? How much is it usually for 7 days?

                  Out-of-Town Bags. Some goodies for your wedding guests who travel for your wedding... Very common for destination weddings.

                  We purchased ours through our travel agent.  I think it was around $100 for travel and comprehensive medical coverage for 8 days.
