I think I had 4 pre ceremony songs.  I made sure I labelled clearly which songs were for what so that they knew once they had the signal to change it to the bridesmaid song and they did a great job of this.

    I am not sure about the other wedding packages but if you get the Unforgettable package there is a little musical trio (steel drums) that play before and after the ceremony so you don't have to worry about music.

            Has anyone been having any difficulty with the wedding planners at the resort regarding some of what they claim to offer in the package vs. what is actually being offered?!

             

            For instance, the newest Romance Extravaganza states "live music during the ceremony".  When I spoke to Vivette about wanting a sax player she said that is HAS to be the steel band.  Nowhere in writing does it say, 'steel band', so I dont know why all of a sudden I have to pay extra to have a sax player when the package simply states "live music". 

             

            Soooo frustrating!!  Anyone else having this problem?????

             

             

            Also, I really wanted to do something different with the menu vs. eating the same thing that my guests will be eating all week.  So I wanted to bring in an Indian caterer (my favourite food!).  The resort is not allowing me to bring in an Indian catered because "I'm not Indian"!!?!?!.  I couldn't believe it.  VERY prejudiced.  She has never seen me nor my fiancee and doesnt know what kind of guests I'll be bringing.  Where do they get off telling me that I'm not Indian so I can't have Indian food delivered?!  I can, however, have a different cake from an outside bakery delivered.  WTF?! 

             

            Becoming very frustrated with them telling me what I can and can't do for my special day. 

             

            (sorry, had to vent!)

            I am planning on having the Unforgettable package and I am super excited about having the steel drums for the ceremony, we had already planned on paying extra for the steel drums so when we found out that this package included it we decided to go with it and have it included!!

              Is anybody considering the new romantic extravaganza package? I like the open bar reception that it includes. What is everyone's thoughts?

                Hey Past GBP Brides...

                 

                For those of you that had a flower girl, did you have flower petals for her to throw? I'm having difficulty figuring out what I'm going to do for my flower girl.... I don't know if I can bring in freeze dried petals (which aren't cheap....) and the petals from the resort are VERY expensive....

                 

                I have asked the WC if I could have her sprinkle glitter (not a lot... tiny hands and all...) and I didn't get a straight yes or no. They dodged the question and suggested she carry a basket that says "here comes the bride" instead.... I'm not too fond of the idea.

                 

                Soon-to-be-Brides... what have you been planning?

                 

                -M

                To tell you the truth, I really don't like having to pay for an open bar at an all inclusive resort.  I realize that its is the bartender and not the booze your paying for but I priced it out and I didn't really find it to be much better than the unforgettable for the difference in price
