      I agree, it's double charging.  What I can't believe is the Dolce Vita holds 180 people and they want me to shut down the restaurant for my 41 guests??  That's ridiculous.  Set me and my guests up at the buffet then!

      CdnBrideJoanne - I don't think that you have to pay to close out a restaurant until you reach over 50 guests.  I think that's the lowest figure I've seen!  And, it seems that even at that, to close out some venues, they want you to have at least 45 guests.  At 4 guests, you're still under that!

       

      Yes, the extra prices are annoying. I make myself feel better about them when I think about how much I would be spending if I decided to have a wedding, just as nice, at home. 5 grand in Jamaica vs. 40 grand at home for something equivalent :)

            This is what Vinnette sent me when I had 39 guests...  And now I'm at 41...

                  How does it work at this resort?

                   

                  Do we have to pick one of those options for our guests or do they get to choose from 3 options at the dinner?

                   

                  We're using the Picsis so I think we get to pick from either of those menues

                    Hi Ladies,

                     

                    Sorry to bother by re-posting this question again (of course the resort just never seems to reply) - does anyone have a copy of the 2014 wedding packages they can share that includes pricing?  Specifically the Unforgettable and the Romance Extravaganza?

                     

                    Thanks so much!
